Perils of Digital Technology – Mike Wittmer on some of the perils of living as high-tech people in a high-tech world.

Teen Mom Kills Intruder – Denny Burk: “There are some stories that you hear that you know you’ll never forget. This is one of them.” It is the story of a teenaged mom who was forced to defend herself and her baby.

Journalling Tips – “So you decided to start journalling as your new year resolution and don’t know where to start? The following tips are things I’ve learned from several years of journalling, and while they are aimed at Christians journalling for the benefit of their spiritual walk, many of the points will apply to journalling in general.”

Winners of souls must first be weepers for souls.

—C.H. Spurgeon
