Prayer: A great place to begin biblical counselling - How to make prayer for each other real.

What is God's will for my life? (1) and (2) - Maybe we need to stop asking and start following. David Platt.

Depression - Helpful thoughts for those who suffer and those who care for them.

Deb recommends some children's Bibles - A great list.

Disciple your daughter - not just women outside your family. - Always glad to be reminded of this.

Chronic pain and the Christian life - I'm finding this a tricky balance for my son:  "Pain sufferers tend either to do too much (creating more pain) or withdraw even further (creating more emotional distress)."
Yes, you do receive incomparable blessings when you come to Jesus. But we must also hear that true Christian faith is built on denial of ourselves. This is why some folks have such a hard time hearing the gospel. We think, “God is love, and if God is love then he wouldn’t ask me to do something I don’t want to do.” But what good news is this?
The good news is that God is going to give us more than we could ask or imagine. But the reality of Christianity is that it only comes by a cross. Unless a seed falls to the earth and dies, it does not bear fruit.

When Jesus calls a man he bids him come and die.

That he might truly live.
