Managing Expectations in Relationships: 8 Great Christian Books That Help

My small group did a study on the book The Bait of Satan by John Bevere a couple of years ago. It went a long way towards helping me in managing my expectations in relationships with others. The subtitle of the book is “Living Free from the Deadly Trap of Offense.” When you think about it, we tend to get offended most when our expectations aren’t lived up to. We take it as a personal ...

Describe Your Faith with these 5 Questions

Has someone asked you to Describe your faith, and you end up feeling like a deer caught in the headlights? I was challenged by the personal profiles in this week’s Celebrate Lit book tour. Taking out the purely romantic/matchmaking questions, <which are incredibly valuable in their own right> the profile asks some really good questions. Questions like “Describe your faith” or “what is your biggest fault?” I want to dig into that with you guys ...

Don’t Blame the Mud: Best Books About Salvation for Kids

There’s nothing more important (or intimidating, it seems like) than trying to figure out how to explain salvation to a child. Where do you start? What do you say? And if you’ve heard how critical the 4-14 window is, the pressure is on! One thing about salvation for kids (or adults), if they don’t understand what sin is (and its forever consequences), why would they want salvation? And there’s a difference between head knowledge and ...

What is Lent? Plus 12 Best Books For Lent Season

What is Lent? As a Southern Baptist from before I was born, I didn’t really get it. I mean, why do we celebrate Lent? Isn’t Lent season a Catholic thing? But my current church home isn’t Baptist. And a very dear friend is a Methodist. So I’ve had more exposure to Lent in recent years. And the more I’ve pressed in to the question of what is Lent, the more I value many aspects of ...

How to Teach The Real Easter Story For Kids: 10 Best Easter Story Books

The Real Easter Story is so special. I don’t think we truly grasp just how privileged we are, to have such free access to forgiveness and love. And if we as adults struggle with wrapping our minds around it, then we need to think about our kids. The meaning of Easter for kids can be overwhelming. But, between the ages of 4-14, they are far more likely to understand and accept the truth, and run ...

Understanding God's Grace: How to set goals and achieve them

How to Set Christian Goals: Understanding God’s Grace is Key

Okay, so this is a little hard to write. I’ve been ‘in church’ since well before I was born. But in over 30 years, I was still childlike in understanding God’s grace and favor. I’ve had the Sunday School answer, a simple, childish acceptance, which is great, but we’re called to a combination of childlike faith and spiritual maturity. (Matthew 18:2-4, Ephesians 4:11-16, Hebrews 6) I didn’t know what I didn’t know. But now I’m ...

How much alike are we? Have you been struggling with how to write personal goals in life that you can stick with for more than a few days or weeks? I know that for me, I spent years not even bothering to set personal goals in life. I didn’t see the point, or if I did, I assumed that I wasn’t capable of success.
