What are you reading for New Testament November? (#NTNovember)

Last month we did #OTOctober — reading through the Old Testament (or at least portions of it) all month. It was fun seeing people share the books they were tackling, the verses that stood out, the new revelations that came. I started in Deuteronomy and ended up jumping to Proverbs … Continue reading

Happy Autumn! Here’s A Butterbeer Recipe

The moment Fall struck–and the first autumn leaf fell from a nearby tree–I found myself googling butterbeer recipes and then turning the kitchen into a cream-soda-war zone.

What Are You Going to Read for #OTOctober?

Okay, not just adaptations, but movies that I thought were … Continue reading

Does Anyone Even Read the Bible Anymore Anyway…?

When’s the last time you read through the entire Bible? This is how I feel when people ask me that question, even though I’m an avid-Bible reader: It’s okay if your answer is “Never” or “A looooong time ago.” And for those of you answering, “I’ve already read through it … Continue reading
