Links Worth Reading (3/20)

Touching the HemBook Signing Announcement!

If you live around Greenville, South Carolina (or have relatives in the area), you’ve probably heard about the annual Bible Conference at Bob Jones University. It’s March 23-28, and this year you have an even better reason to come. Because your favorite author will be doing a book signing in the campus store, on Wednesday, March 26! I’ll be there right after the morning service, from 11:30-12:30, and would love to meet new friends or say hi to old friends. Let me know if you’ll be stopping by… and feel free to share this with any friends you have in the area!

And now for some links worth reading…

Unknown Heroes

“In the scheme of things, you’re unknown. You don’t have a Social Media following, a blog, a cable network or conference named after you. You’re a small town pastor.” This article is a wonderful testimony to the years of dedication — and lack of recognition — that characterizes many “unknown” servants of Christ.

And did you catch last week’s post on a relatively-unknown hero, Bezalel? If not, check it out now – and be sure to leave some comment-love for the guest author, Kim Pina!

 

America Needs the Gospel

If you’ve been reading this blog for any length of time, you know that my husband and I believe we’ve been called to a church-planting ministry in the Western US. This short video explains a bit of our burden. And this article on least-reached places explains more about the widespread areas in our nation that have never heard the gospel. So many dark areas in America, in need of Christ’s light!

 

You Are Not Too Busy

Talk about “busyness” is far too prevalent in our society. When’s the last time you had a conversation with someone, and neither of you mentioned how busy you were? But Tim Challies challenges us to think about busyness differently: “There is a cost to busyness, but there is a more subtle cost to being perceived as busy. When people believe that I’m busy, they also believe that I am unapproachable.” Read the rest here.

 

Dental Chair Devotions?

Maybe you read the Bible every morning. But do you usually remember what you’ve read, later on throughout the day? Or do you have a “swish and spit” mentality? This article offers nine practical suggestions to retain what you read, instead of becoming a hearer-only (or a dental-chair devotee).

 

She Plans Dinner

A fun new business venture from one of my blogging-friends! Barefoot Hippie Girl loves to plan meals, and loves to help other people plan their meals. So she decided to put her talents to good (entrepreneurial) use, and is starting a business called “She Plans Dinner” to share recipes, plan menus, and organize grocery lists. This post shares her heart for the venture, and this post outlines the logistical details.

 

One Final Thought -

Happy Spring!
