He ate and drank the precious words,
His spirit grew robust;
He knew no more that he was poor,
Nor that his frame was dust.
He danced along the dingy days,
And this bequest of wings
Was but a book. What liberty
A loosened spirit brings.
My latest reads (in addition to Scripture, of course) have been...
I highly recommend both books. Especially the Freedom and Boundaries by Kevin DeYoung. It is a great book on complementarianism, highlighting the value of women but our proper roles in the church. :)
"I believe in role distinctions for men and women not simply because it is right, but because I believe it is best."
"God's word is precious wisdom, a choice jewel, and sweet honey to our lips.His will is always right, always trustworthy and always good."
"...a complementarian view of gender roles should be embraced not only because it is biblical, but because it brings glory to God, blessing to the church, and the full, divinely ordained meaning and purpose to manhood and womanhood."
~ Kevin DeYoung, Freedom and Boundaries
Right now, I am reading: What Did Jesus Do? : A Call to Return to the Biblical Gospel. Ray Comfort has been gifted with evangelizing people and teaches us how to do it too. You may have watched his videos on youtube HERE.
Yesterday, at church, a sweet lady who also homeschools brought a bunch of curriculum for us other homeschool moms (most of the families at our church homeschool) to go through. She let us just take whatever we wanted! I went a little bonkers and got some great things! Although they are a little older, they will work wonderfully for us! *I just want to add that whenever I type the word homeschool, my computer tries to tell me it is a misspelled/unknown word! I suppose it should be two words...but they just seem like they should go together when describing home education...don't they?
What are *you* reading lately? Anything you recommend (although I have so many books to read through here, I really don't need to find any others...but I would still love to hear about what you are enjoying!)
I pray your celebration in Christ's resurrection was joy-filled and enjoyable.
Thanks for stopping by today! If you haven't seen it yet...HERE is my post from the weekend!
*Links in this post will benefit me if you click on them and order. Just a way I can help our family with a little extra! :)
