Patrick Henry Hughes
I enjoyed this little video about Patrick Henry Hughes: “Patrick is a remarkable young man who was born without eyes and without the ability to fully straighten his arms and legs, making him unable to walk. Additionally, two steel rods were surgically attached to Patrick’s spine to correct scoliosis.” (HT:Z)


Six Books for Children on the Bible’s Storyline
Andy Naselli points to some books that look like excellent resources for parents and children.


Little Bird
“Working in the Emergency Room is a frustrating experience, in the sense that the large majority of what comes through the doors is a complete misuse of resources. I found myself jaded and more unhappy than I had been in ages. But healthy kids are fun. And it’s impossible for me to be mad at a 3-year-old. So even when I didn’t believe in what we were doing, I could at least believe in him.”


Devils Among Us
Dean Sam Lloyd and actor Max McLean discuss Screwtape in this conversation (available in both audio and video).


Bible Reading Plan 2010
Julian outlines a great Bible reading plan that both Aileen and I are using this year. There’s still lots of time to get going with a reading plan for 2010, so why not give it a look. This one includes both a single and a couple’s version.

The man who quits drugs will still react when he catches a whiff and the woman who gave up alcoholism will still struggle when…

  • Lets Hear It For the Second Parents

    Let’s Hear It For the Second Parents

    While today we tend to associate step-parents with divorce, in previous centuries they were almost exclusively associated with death and with either widow- or widowerhood. In an era in which lifespans were shorter and, therefore, a greater number of parents died while their children were still young, there was a distinct and honored role for…
