What Every Husband Needs to Know – Gloria Furman tells us what every husband needs to know about stay at home moms. (Here’s another article on a similar subject)

Was Solomon a Good King? – “The reign of King Solomon is traditionally viewed as the Golden Age of Israel’s history. A king known for his great wisdom, Solomon oversaw an era of peace and prosperity, expanded Israel’s boundaries in every direction, and ordered the construction of the Temple.” But there’s more to the story.

—Matthew Henry
