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

Natasha Crain had a post on the raising kids. She has a list of things parents need to be doing to raise godly kids in a secular world. She concludes by saying in part, "...we shouldn’t wait until our kids encounter challenges before we address them." Parents, read this. It's not as tough as it sounds and you're never alone.

Daniel Passini had a post on marriage entitled, "The 4 Fights Every Couple Should Be Willing To Have". Near the end of the post he says, "Don’t be willing to give up so easy. Fight for your marriage." If you are married this is a good reminder of what's important, and what is worth fighting over.

Reggie Osborne has a post about worship and parenting. He writes, "Too often we sit distracted and disinterested in our corporate gatherings. We sing with little enthusiasm. We pray with little heart. We treat the privileges of God’s family as if they were mere little obligations ... All the while, little eyes are watching us." Parents, it's important to model what faithful worship looks like.
