When Sinners Say "I Do" Discovering the Power of the Gospel for Marriage

The gospel is something we need in every area of our lives.  In marriage and in singleness.  In joy and in sorrow.  In good times and in hard times.  When life feels good and when life feels confusing.  This book showed so much of my need for Jesus and His grace. It calls us to look at our own sins and not be so easy to point out the sins of those around us.   It shows the great gravity of our sins.  We can all tend to point fingers and defend or blame our sins on others or life circumstances.  I think especially today it is so easy to do this and not truly see our sins.  "It is wrong, not because of what it does to me, or my spouse, or child, or neighbor, but because it is an act of rebellion against the infinitely holy and majestic God." -Jerry Bridges "There can be no small sins against a great God." -J.I. Packer Dave Harvey mentions in the book that with true sorrow of our "little sins", our awareness of God and His mercy grow. Be quick to see our own

The Penderwicks At point Moutte

Evelyn and I read this together and we both enjoyed the excitement on each page!

It is summer and the Penderwick family are split up...well...only for two weeks. Their father and stepmother are off on their honeymoon with young Ben.  Rosalind is is in New Jersey leaving the three younger girls to travel to Maine with their Aunt Claire.  Which means Skye is the OAP (oldest available Penderwick).
Will she be able to handle it all? Even when everything seems to be going wrong?
 Will she be able to keep her younger sister, Batty, from blowing up?
