A La Carte (July 13)

I had a great week away last week. We rented a little cottage by a lake and pretty much just sat there together for seven days. It was just what the doctor ordered. And now, back to work… There are a few new Kindle deals for you to take a look at.

Weekend A La Carte (July 11)

For the past week I’ve been on vacation and all the posts were queued up in advance so I could rest (except for yesterday’s—I just couldn’t help myself). My gratitude goes to Westminster Books for sponsoring the blog this week. Sponsors keep the site going!

A La Carte (July 10)

I’m often amazed at how much great material people willingly create and then release online for free. Today’s a good example of how different Christians use their gifts and explore their interests to bless people like you and me through their blogs. I’m grateful for each of them.

A La Carte (July 9)

Whether it’s a vacation or a staycation (still one of my least-favorite words), it’s awfully good to take some time off, isn’t it? That’s what I’ve been doing this week—queuing up everything in advance, so I can just step away. Thanks for bearing with me! (With that said, I did spot some Kindle deals, so updated the page accordingly.) (Yesterday on the blog: Today I Will Live Like a Christian) The High Stakes of a Hard Heart Jen Oshman says …

A La Carte (July 7)

I hope you and yours are enjoying this beautiful summer. It has been a crazy year so far in so many ways, with so much suffering and uncertainty, so perhaps it’s more important than ever to get outside, to look at what God has made, to ponder it, to see his hand in it, and to praise him for it. (Yesterday on the blog: An Early-July Family Update) 4 Ways Not to Be a Jerk Online “Scripture calls us to …

A La Carte (July 6)

I am taking this week off, so will not be sharing Kindle deals, unless I happen to spot something spectacular. You’ll survive for a week!

Weekend A La Carte (July 4)

I wish all of my American friends (and family) a joyful and celebratory Independence Day today. Today’s Kindle deals include the usual Saturday classics with a few newer titles as well.
