Sacrificing Our Children’s Online Identities: This is a really thought provoking post over at The Gospel Coalition on the need for parents to use wisdom in what they share about their children online. If you are on FB or Twitter, if you blog and regularly do so about your kids, I recommend you take the time to read this article and think about some of the important points Jen makes: “How many parents realize that they are the custodians of their children’s virtual identity until they are old enough to manage it on their own?”
A Mother’s Take on Gosnell: Ruth, from GraceLaced, beautifully put into words the horror that many of us who have had life growing inside us and who have held tiny, incredible creations in our arms feel for the horrors of abortion.
May We Be Known for Our Friendships: The church should not be a place where souls go unnoticed or overlooked. We must be looking out for those who need the fellowship of true friends, and reach out to others when we ourselves are the ones needing fellowship: “There are many hearts crying out in silent pain within the church. As we sit in our pews each Sunday, surrounded by painted-on smiles and neatly pressed clothes, inside many are weeping.”

God’s Sovereignty in the Midst of Loss: Given the horrible events which occurred yesterday in Oklahoma, these quotes from Jonathan Edwards’ family shared over at Theology for Girls seem especially poignant. Also see this post: When God Asks You for Your Isaac.
