5 Recommendations from this Week

This week I've been reading/watching some great stuff!!

1. First of all, I've been looking into foster/adopting here in the US, and been able to see some of the 58,000 children in foster care in California. They need families, and I've just been praying about hopefully being able to love on them as Christ has so mercifully, graciously, sweetly loved on me. After seeing my plight, did He just stand around doing nothing? No! He demonstrated His love! He sent His son to live the life of obedience He has called all of us too, and then Christ gave his life to save me from hell, and God accredits Christ's obedience to me! So that, now God has adopted me and become my Father!! This sight has pictures and little bios about some of these orphans:

2. Upon two really great friend's recomendations, I have started reading "Give them Grace: Dazzling Your Kids with the Love of Jesus", a parenting book by Elyse Fitzpatrick. Only like 30% done on my Kindle, but really impacted already! How often I call my son "good" when in reality, he's not! I'm not!! No one has done good, or is good!
Romans 3:10-12
"As it is written, There is none righteous, no, not one:
There is none that understandeth, there is none that seeketh after God.
They are all gone out of the way, they are together become unprofitable; there is none that doeth good, no, not one."
So instead of calling him good, we've been acknowledging God's grace in his life and using that for encouragement!! There are so many opportunities to share with him, and just prove to him that we are BAD and we need a SAVIOR and all our obedience should be just out of love for God, and not to please man or to earn anything.Give them Grace on Amazon.

3. On a much shallower note, Downton Abbey season 3 has ended. I went over to my friends house Sunday night at 9pm to watch the finale and it was so fun. First of all, that's my bedtime so it was crazy and second of all, my friend Beth put up with all my chatting and commentary, and had cookies, tea and candy. Dream night!

4. I've SO enjoyed reading again Albert Mohler's current event articles. Current events with a Biblical worldview. Just so nice that we can still apply God's truth in all the nitty gritty details of life.
Loved this one especially on the lost art of cooking in modern America:http://www.albertmohler.com/2009/08/07/the-cooking-creature-a-call-for-recovered-wisdom/

5. The lost art of cooking reminds me of Phil, on my other favorite show, Duck Dynasty (I can't stop quoting this show!):
