This February has been full of changes, mainly in the weather. Spring-like temps and yellow daffodils one day, and freezing downpours the next. February is not one of my favorite months of the year. It’s that place of in between, the end of winter with a hint of spring around the corner. It seems to bounce me around, keeping me off balance. So, a few of my favorites are as up and down as the February weather patterns (click on the highlighted links):
My favorite podcast episode is Knowing Faith podcast, #30 – How to Read the Bible
I am a bit of a nerd when it comes to this topic, but this podcast does have some really useful information and practical resources to help you out if you are struggling with that daily reading plan that you may or may not have started at the beginning of the year. Check it out, I promise it won’t disappoint.
Following along the nerd trail is my Favorite app – Read Scripture app
This came out of listening to the above podcast I mentioned. I downloaded this app and it has really changed the way I view the Scriptures. It has “fun” videos you can watch from The Bible Project people which help to explain overviews of the book you are reading along with some big picture concepts of the Bible, such as the image of God or the covenants. It also provides a Psalm for reading and meditation that goes along with your daily portion of Scripture. If you have tried and failed to read the Bible through in a year, then give this app a try. Listen to the podcast and those good people will explain it all a lot better than I do.
“No Guarantees.” Parenting is hard, and often we believe that if we parent well that our children will turn out well. This thought-provoking article points out that there are no guarantees. What’s the end game here? That if we do our job right, that they will reflect well on us?
Wham Bam Can of Ham! Humor is good for the soul, and I often find that in The Tonight Show with Jimmy Fallon.
My last favorite is the song, “He Knows My Name,” by Tasha Cobbs Leonard. I heard a woman sing it acapella at a women’s conference I attended this past week. It blessed my soul, and hope that it blesses yours.
