7 Ways to Get in the Word – Here are seven ways for busy moms to get into God’s Word every day, even with all of their distractions and responsibilities.

Seven Sutherland Sisters – I love quirky stories from days gone by. Collectors Weekly has the tale of the seven Sutherland sisters and their 37 feet of hair.

Fearfully and Wonderfully Made – This is quite a powerful series from Russ Ramsey who writes about being diagnosed with and treated for a serious illness.

The Prince of the power of the air seems to bend all the force of his attack against the spirit of prayer.
