Field Trip! 10 Books That Will Send Kids Exploring - “Spring 2013 has been a very good year for children’s books that spark the imagination and make kids (and grownups) want to do a little more exploring.”

Radical: Three Years Later -  Just over three years ago, a little orange book titled  Radical  was published. In the post the author, David Platt looks back on the success of the book, and it’s impact on reader and his own church in the 3 years since publication. Personally, this book has been a great inspiration for Starr and I. Couldn’t encourage someone to read it more!

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?”
