Passion & Purity – Review

Another book review! This reading challenge thing is really working – I’ve read two whole books in as many weeks. If the only effect of the challenge is that I’m finally getting myself to read, it’s been well worth it.

That being said, I strongly recommend that you pick up a copy of Elisabeth Elliot’s Passion and Purity. Rarely have I read a love story so beautifully told. In this book, Elisabeth combines her journals from her college years, memories, biblical and straightforward advice, and an intimate relationship with the Lord.

Easter Reflections

Today is celebrated around the world as “Good Friday” as a reminder of the good God did by ordaining his son to be crucified on our behalf two thousand years ago.  If you think about it, it’s kind of strange that Christians throughout history would celebrate such a gruesome event.  There’s a reason we celebrate Good Friday though, despite all of the horrors Jesus faced that day, and it’s because Easter was just around the corner.  As we get closer to Easter, it’s imperative that we get our hearts and minds right with what we’re actually celebrating – not bunnies and eggs, but a Savior slain for our sins and resurrected to give us life.  We especially appreciated the following blogs and hope you do too!
