    glamping. never again!

    proudduck.com 10 Jun '17, 11am

    It was one night we will always always always remember. We discovered things about us we never knew we could do! Like rubber tapping and wading through the river. We saw a little boy in his underwear screaming “I’m going to be on TV!!!” when he saw the Love, Vivy crew (he’s so cute, w...

  • For the sake of the gospel, let women speak

    rachelheldevans.com 08 Jun '17, 7am

    Piper appears to consider the first half of 1 Timothy 2:12 (“a woman should not have authority”) as universally applicable, but disregards the second half (“she must be quiet”) by encouraging women like Moore to continue speaking. If the first half of 1 Timothy 2 is so crucial to the ...

    Eighty years after the Scopes Monkey Trial made a spectacle of Christian fundamentalism and brought national attention to her hometown, Rachel Held Evans faced a trial of her own when she began to have doubts about her faith. Growing up in a culture obsessed with apologetics, Evans as...

    #2: Guy who published a book about millennials, who met me supposedly to discuss an interview. But he suddenly whipped out copies of his new book from his backpack and wanted me to take them with me. I wasn’t even carrying a backpack or large bag or anything like that. So I had to car...

    What Happened When We Became #frontyardpeople

    crystalstine.me 06 Jun '17, 4pm

    We became #frontyardpeople last week as we cleared out closets, crawl spaces, and our garage for a three-day yard sale. I had spreadsheets and hundreds of price tags, to-do lists and even a layout of our driveway planned for Thursday so we would know where to put the tables. It took a...

  • Repurposing Old Milk Tins into Toys

    hollyjean.sg 02 Jun '17, 3am

    I came across someone asking on my Facebook mummies group about what we do with empty formula tins. Some mums said they put them in the recycling bins, other mums used it for storage of other food items or for storing small knick knacks... but like me, most mums answered - I throw it ...

    There's lots I want to say and share with you but I've been apprehensive about crafting blog posts over the past year because I usually don't have the time to sit down and give things 'extra' thought in order to articulate my opinions the best way possible. I squeeze this one out whil...

    Marriage Through Jesus-Tinted Glasses

    crystalstine.me 29 May '17, 4pm

    Matt’s experience with marriage was considerably different from mine. His parents are still together, while mine divorced (and then remarried – several times in my father’s case) while I was young. Marriage felt like something you did because it was expected, but somewhere. in the bac...

    Hey Audrey. Thanks for this beautiful write up. I recently feel somewhat the same, like I don’t know who I am anymore. I think back at the time I was in college/uni, so happy, funny and sociable. Nowadays I don’t even know what to talk about when i see my friends as my brain feels so ...

    Ok so you might want to steal my best friends after this post, but I’d like to declare that they are bounded to me by a friendship contract so carefully worded that basically means they’re stuck with me and that you can’t sit with us. Unless you bring cake, we like cake. Well, I like ...

    When I was a kid, I imagined Esther to be something of a beauty pageant contestant. I figured that, in addition to her twelve months of beautification, she must have performed a talent and answered questions from a glass bowl before winning the heart of a love-struck King Xerxes. I ne...

    If you’d like to change consumer behavior, consider how you can create these near-miss situations. Not too long ago, Mr Bean launched their scratch-and-win campaign. Buy a pancake + drink, for instance, and get a scratchcard. I bought such a set specifically because I wanted to take p...

    I cannot overstate the degree to which this remix—in which masters are reminded that they too have a heavenly master—would have been radical in the ancient world. And this is important: Peter and Paul’s use of metaphor (the husband is like Christ, the wife is like the Church, sufferin...
