Hey friends! Hope you’ve had a great start to 2020. I think moving forward I’ll share these link round-up posts once per month. Hope it serves you well!
- ChristianAudio free book of the month
- Free eBook: 1 Samuel for You by Tim Chester from the God’s Word for You Series (which I really like)
- Logos Free Book of the Month: Creation, Power and Truth: The Gospel in a World of Cultural Confusion by Tom Wright
I don’t usually share obituaries on social media, but this one is worth sharing for several reasons. I laughed out loud AND treasured the gospel more after reading it. I hope it blesses you. Looking forward to meeting Ken Fuson in heaven!
A Brief Defense of the Christian Subculture by Trevin Wax. Here’s an article I resonate a lot with because I grew up consuming Christian music and programs.

(Here’s an article he links to that might be helpful for Christian parents: Research Reveals the 5 Biggest Influencers on Your Child’s Spiritual Health)
I’m not sure I’d endorse everything written on the Zen Habits website, but this article is helpful: The Heartbreaking Effects of Being Only Partly Committed to Most Things

Your Phone is Teaching You How to Pray by Lauren Weir
The residual effects of constant phone use can crowd out our capacity for processing, leaving us with the inability to prolong our praise and petition (or even our silence) before the Father who loves us and hears us when we call (Ps. 62)… Phones also teach us to expect an immediate reply. In prayer, though, we may wait years—a lifetime, even—before God answers. This is for our good, that in the waiting we might grow in character and gain more of him.
