    Books Worth Reading

    No Graven Image by Elisabeth Elliot
    The fictional story of a young single woman missionary who is given the enormous task of starting a work among the Quichuas of the high Andes.

Then something happens that shatters that image and she learns to put no created image, no matter how "spiritual", in the place of God.

1. Blog Responsibly. Christian bloggers need to speak the truth in love.

3. The Deeps. “Lord Jesus, give me a deeper repentance . . .”

4. A Wise Mother Guards Her Time.

5. Read this month’s issue of Challenging Femininity.

7. Healing From Abuse. One woman’s recovery from domestic violence.

8. Lower Wages, Lack of Job Opportunities Means More Americans Delaying ‘Adulthood’  ”In 2005, even before the current recession, roughly three in 10 white men (up to age 34) with a high school degree were not in school, in the military or at work.”   And, I might add, laziness and selfishness play a large part in delaying adulthood, too.

9. Insight Must Lead Us Toward Trust. “It is one thing to appreciate truth. It is quite another to trust it.”

10. Unconditionally Loving Our Children.
