Ian & Larissa – You may have heard of Ian and Larissa. This video provides an update on their unique situation and tells that they’ll soon have a book out titled Eight Twenty Eight.

Encouraging Others Through Loss – This is a powerful story following a devastating loss. “A lot of people have said our faith is strong. But God’s grace is strong. But really what’s getting us through it, His sustaining us. God’s giving us power, giving us calmness, peace…”

Show Them Jesus – This looks like a very helpful resource from New Growth Press. Westminster Books has it deeply discounted if you buy it in bulk to give away.

Mr. Controller – David Murray goes looking for the characteristics of the authoritarian, controlling person.

Firing Rome’s Canon – R.C. Sproul Jr. on the canonization of two former popes: “I can’t fathom how anyone could believe the silliness we’re all supposed to be celebrating. Rome actually insists that we believe that when these popes died, they wrote a check for more than they owed and calmly told God He could keep the change.”

15 Landmarks Zoomed Out – This is really interesting: 15 landmarks zoomed out to tell a bigger story.

A Dad Who Sings – “We had the windows down, the sun roof open, and the music turned up. I was singing along, oblivious to the mounting embarrassment of the person occupying the passenger seat. Until…”
