Here's what we've been reading online this week:

Katie Hughes wrote a post on parenting. She wrote, "Somehow in all the parenting literature and teaching I think we’ve lost the importance of repenting to our own children." Because things are caught rather than taught, kids need to learn how to repent from the people they who have the most influence on them. Parents, this is part of parenting.

Scott Kedersha is starting a series of posts on marital grit. He says, "Outside of the occasional Sunday sermon or occasional book or podcast, he was doing nothing to intentionally work on and grow his marriage." This is something that needs to change.

Jared Sparks wrote a post about joy and sorrow, and which we should anticipate more. He says (commenting on 1 Thessalonians 1:6), "Paul anticipated THE JOY of the people of God." As a parent, as a pastor, as a husband or wife, ask yourself the question: do you anticipate joy?
