Learning all you can about that story is glorious and important. It’s also important to see how that gospel story has affected others over the years. Let me quickly highlight three short series worth getting a hold of…

When Home Hurts

There are some books that I simply wish never needed to be written, this is one of them. I wish this book didn’t need to exist, but I’m glad that it does because of the world that we live in. Domestic abuse is no laughing matter, it is a serious issue that every person should be aware of and gain some basic understanding of. Please, read this review and I strongly encourage you to also buy this book. This book is for pastors, church leaders, family, friends, basically it’s for every Christian to read.

Teach Them Young

It’s important for children to learn eternal truths that will carry them through the ups and downs of life from the beginning. Children need to be taught the hope of the gospel and the difference that Jesus makes in a persons’ life. This means teaching them the Bible, sound theology and teaching them about people who have been used by God in the past, and all of that needs to be done in an age-appropriate way. Tall order? Here are some resources to help…

Is Masturbation Sinful?

The other day I came across a post on social media, written by a Christian to a Christian group, in which the individual stated that they masturbated because it helped with their mental health. They threw the question to the group ‘is masturbation sinful?’ Naturally, what followed was a thread of comments with Christians on both sides of the debate. Some argued that it was wrong and shouldn’t be done by a Christian, whilst others argued along the lines of “If it’s good for you and you enjoy it, go for it”. Sadly, not many people actually turned to the Bible but instead just put forward their own opinion. So, here goes, is masturbation sinful?

Join in with my hobby…

Some people they enjoy watching sport. Others like to paint or get creative and make things. Others find their rest when they are around people all the time. I am an introvert and my health issues mean that noise and bright places are not my friends. So, reading has become my hobby over the years. You can always tell when I’m going through a particular stressful time, as I don’t blog as much. This past wee season has been like that. It’s been full-on and so my reviews have slipped sadly. However, books have continued to be read and so here are a few shorter reviews of some of the titles that have flown across my desk…

The Leader Should Lead, Not Perform

A platform can be a dangerous thing. For some it’s merely a place where they serve. For others it becomes the foundations on which pride, perfection and performance are build. The role of a leader is never to perform, but to lead.
