As Friday’s lend themselves to playing catch-up, here is some Internet Gold that I’ve loved over the past few weeks.
The Gospel and the (Im)perfect Marriage – “Depending on how well we do in our own eyes, perfectionism can play out in a variety of negative responses: feelings of worthlessness, inordinate preoccupation with the opinions of other people, paralyzing fear, impatience with others, and a sense of superiority.”
Shaping a Child’s Soul: A task to Important to be Entrusted to a Professional – “Efficiency is not the goal of gospel-motivated ministry.”
How to Save Money around the Home – “Sometimes we put these small changes off because we forget just how much money we could save if we do them.”
The Secret to Raising Emotionally Healthy Kids – “We live in complex times. As I work with thousands of parents and faculty each year, I’m increasingly convinced we have a more engaged set of adults who care about kids today than at any time since I began my career in 1979. Simultaneously, however, I am observing a more troubled population of kids, especially by the time they reach their teen years. It appears at first like an oxymoron. How can such a cared-for generation experience such emotional difficulties?”
