Here some interesting links from my recent bookmarks:

1. Seeing that it seems to be my lot in life to deal with fighting women, this article was very insightful. Today’s women are destroying and violating themselves with aggression. For the record, I completely agree with the author that femininity is a fragile thing that should be protected, not roughed up and trampled on. It’s a great article.

2. “We don’t need a self-help book, we need a Savior.”

3. For those of you who have been exposed to (or are tired of) the hype and obsession surrounding the Twilight books and movies, here are three great articles on the topic:

How Twilight is re-vamping romance
The trouble with Edward
Abstaining from the madness

4. “He that believes in the Lord Jesus Christ shall be saved, be his sins never so many. But he that does not believe in the Lord Jesus Christ must be damned, be his sins never so few.”   – Thomas Brooks (Of First Importance)

5. Listen to a sermon by Richard Wurmbrand – “The Beauty of Nothing”. (37 minutes)

The Beauty of Nothing (Opens up Windows Media Player) Go here for more listening options or to download.

6. Two Christian prisoners in Iran have been released, but are still in need of prayer.

7. For all you frugal freaks out there, here’s a printable coupon database.
