How Many Children Should I Have? – I know this is a big topic and one for which some people have very strong convictions, but I quite like David Murray’s handling of it.

The Secret Things of the Lord – “What is the will of God for my life? In this excerpt from his Foundations teaching series, R.C. Sproul distinguishes between the decretive and the preceptive wills of God.” These are important distinctions.

Books for Grads – Westminster Books has some excellent books for grads on sale.

Seven Reasons Why Christians Doubt – “I want to briefly give you some of the more ‘mundane’ causes of why we, as Christians, might experience doubt, whether it be doubt in the existence of God, doubt in his love for us, or doubt in our salvation.”

Ornaments of the Soul – Though I’m not the target audience, I enjoyed this article from Jen Thorn.
