How Real Is “Heaven Is For Real”? – I appreciated John Piper’s to this question: How real is the book Heaven Is For Real?

Job: A Champion of Faith by Grace – I really enjoyed Charlene’s poem based on the book of Job. Be sure to read it aloud! (You can read about why she wrote the poem here.)

3 Ways to Recognize Bad Statistics – Ed Stetzer gives you 3 ways you can recognize bad statistics.

  • The Kindness of God

    God’s Goodness in a Cruel World

    There is much to love and appreciate about our God, much for which we ought to give him praise and thanks. One of the attributes we may consider too seldom is his goodness, and as an aspect or component of his goodness, his kindness. And that is the subject of
