I enjoyed school.  I loved the organization, the schedule, and especially the knowledge.  I Didn’t enjoy tests in particular, but I enjoyed the satisfaction and accomplishments from a good grade on a hard test.   I had a lot of good teachers.  The best teachers I ever had were tough and had high expectations of me.  They also cared about me and my classmates.   Perhaps the Christian is a student, with the local church and Christian homes and...

As a teenager and then single adult, I thought organization meant neat shelves and matching totes, and I could actually get all if my work done without writing a single to do list!  I found out life requires much more than that. Reality hit me as a young wife and mother, as a family in full time ministry, and then as a home schooling mom.  I wish I had read this book much sooner!

I enjoyed the discussion beginning in chapter 10 about relative truth vs absolute truth, and real vs. fake conversion.  Deb Brammer demonstrates her thorough understanding of far Eastern thought and the difficulties of cross-cultural communication.   I especially love how normal Christian life* is woven into the story. ...

In my previous post “God Created a Woman”, we reviewed the nature and purpose of women as we studied through Genesis 1 and 2.  I’ve made the point that God created women to be equal in kind to the man, and His purpose for us is to be helpers to the man.  This arrangement, this role, this hierarchy, is a part of God’s perfect creation.  Sin had not entered the picture yet.  Complimentarianism seems to be the only form of male headship...

This hearty soup is hubby approved, and it’s actually pretty easy to make.  It’s creamy, comforting, and so good!  The base of the soup is the tomato parmesan, so if you don’t happen to have the tortellini or the sausage on hand, you could leave those out and it would still be a super yummy dish.  I don’t usually have cream on hand, so I usually substitute that part of the recipe with a roux to thicken it up a bit (you’ll see that alternative at the bottom of the recipe).  However, for...
