I’m bringing back “Click Here” to share what I’m reading from blogs, books, and the Bible. (Amazon affiliate links included).
- Learning to Read without Books: Supporting Your Dyslexic Homeschooler from Simple Homeschool. We used some of these methods last year and this year David is reading at grade level! If you have a struggling or reluctant reader, these tips may help you too.
- What Does Autism Awareness Even Mean? from Carrie Cariello. I wasn’t familiar with Carrie’s blog but I love this post. Her son with autism is different from James, but we have lots of the same struggles and triumphs!
- Nine Traits of Church Bullies from Thom Rainer. “Church bullies are common in many churches. They wreak havoc and create dissension. They typically must have an ‘enemy’ in the church, because they aren’t happy unless they are fighting a battle. They tend to maneuver to get an official leadership position in the church, such as chairman of the elders or deacons or treasurer.” This post has 140 comments, so it’s clearly a common issue!
- Measuring Church Planting Success from Kevin Ezell gives a great report on recent Southern Baptist church plants. Lots to celebrate!
- Pastors’ Wives: 5 Misconceptions by Lauren Chandler at CrossWay. Great encouragement for ministry wives.
David and I went to the library this week and checked out lots of books about the Revolutionary War. We’ve been studying it using the Liberty’s Kids DVDs and in the coming weeks, he and Lee have a field trip to Philadelphia planned. Audible had the Hunger Games series on sale so I downloaded all three. I’ve been listening to them all week and didn’t do much reading because I was having headaches each day and wasn’t sure if it was vision related (it turned out to be stress related). I did read parts of The 4 Hour Body and As You Wish (which Lee read all of and enjoyed!).
From the Bible:
Romans 5:2-4 “Through him we have also obtained access by faith into this grace in which we stand, and we rejoice in hope of the glory of God. Not only that, but we rejoice in our sufferings, knowing that suffering produces endurance, and endurance produces character, and character produces hope,”
