Recommended Reading

I read my blogs through Google reader which is a much more efficient way than going to each individual blog you like to keep up with.  It’s also helpful because you don’t have to read everything… you can scan and read only those that pop out as interesting to you.

A few of my friends have asked me which blogs I read so in addition to the ones you can find on the links to the right, I thought I’d post a few things I’ve found noteworthy over the last couple of weeks.  I’m posting these not only for the two people who read my blog, but also for me to come back to these one day when needed {see post on “How to Write a Book Proposal” or “Baked Oatmeal”}.

Ed Stetzer from Lifeway Research has begun a series on The Pornification of American Culture. This is an important read for anyone… especially parents. It’s harder to keep away from porn than it is to find it now and Ed has some important things to say on the matter.

Jenni Catron is the Executive Director at Crosspoint Church in Nashville. She has a lot of compelling things to say about leadership. Many people are obviously aware of their leadership, but some people lead without even realizing it.  Some people embrace being in leadership while others shy away from it.  In this post she writes about leadership at all levels.

Bianca Olthoff has written some very honest words on food addictions and surrender.  Something that we can all relate to no matter what your poison, addiction, or idol of the moment may be.

Brett McCracken via the Jesus Creed blog has some thoughts on what divides Christians.  Not that the list is anything new, but the comments are really interesting in terms of seeing what ideas are out there.

Ann Kroeker’s Food on Friday post from last week.  Baked Oatmeal. I’m definitely making this.  As soon as I have some time to make anything other than a bowl of cereal for breakfast.

Rachelle Gardener is a literary agent who blogs about publishing.  She has a very straight forward post here on How to Write a Book Proposal.  One day.

Leave it to the Gypsy Mama to keep us all grounded when it comes to our illusions of the perfect life.

My favorite thing I thought on this year was on Habakkuk.  The study of it was so moving for me and thankfully God has put it in order for me to develop it into a 4 part teaching for Point Loma First Church of the Nazarene’s women’s retreat in October.  I’m wondering if I can somehow incorporate some of Jon Acuff’s commentary on Habakkuk.

The women (In)Courage always have some good offerings on their blog.  This is a good reminder along with some good recipes that taking a meal to someone is a wonderful way to serve.  We have benefited from many hands over the last couple of months bringing us delicious meals and giving me one less thing to think about.

What about you?  Have you come across any interesting blog posts lately?
