You Belong to Christ – I appreciate what Luma gets at in this article about motherhood. “I am NOT anti-motherhood, I am for Christ-centered motherhood! It is because I have lived at the two extremes of neglecting family, and making family my idol, that I can say some of the hard things I’m going to say.

The Campus Tsunami – “What happened to the newspaper and magazine business is about to happen to higher education: a rescrambling around the Web.”

—C.H. Spurgeon
