These 23 Far Away Perspectives of Famous Places will Change the Way You See Them Forever – Incredible photos!  Some of them I already knew, but on others….I was shocked!

Happiness Versus Joy and Why We Choose Happiness Too – I love this.  “Happiness is an outward expression of elation, while joy is inward expression of peace and contentment.

Has the Christian Purity Culture Gone Overboard? – This.  This is good.

Invincible – “I wanted to be everyone’s sun, moon, and guiding stars. I wanted their day to be complete because they talked to me, or their life to be full because I, Bethany, was in it. I wanted to bring the joy and light to their existence. If I failed in some way, their whole world might come apart, because I was so vital and necessary! Horrors!”

4 Lies the Church Taught Me About Sex – “I don’t regret waiting until I was married to have sex, and I’m not advocating that churches stop teaching that sex is designed for marriage. But I do think there is something seriously wrong with the way we’ve handled the conversation.”

Living in a Loveless Marriage – A great post about what to do when you have fallen or are starting to fall out of love with your spouse.

When Your Children Act Like You – Love this!!  “Why don’t I react to God the way that I want my children to react to me?”

Why Every Mother Needs to Learn to Say I’m Sorry – “I think that is Gospel waiting down there on the carpet for me to kneel before my son and admit I was wrong.”

1 Corinthians 13 Moms – The love chapter for Moms. 🙂

How Not to be Disappointed this Mother’s Day – I know, I know….Mother’s Day is long gone.  But this post still applies.  I love how she deals with expectations and entitlement.

Why I Don’t Mock Other Moms Anymore – “When we’re mocking others, we’re caught up in how we feel.  We forget how they feel…. We forget that they have complicated lives and complicated reasons for the decisions that they make.”

Am I Enough? – Sometimes being a Mom is very hard and overwhelming.  But then I think about how much I cried and prayed before we got pregnant.
