Purposeful Links #68

Purposeful Links from www.homewithpurpose.net

Here’s this week’s round up of purposeful links.

  • Have you heard Dr. Terry Wahl’s story? She reversed the effects multiple sclerosis through nutrition, going from a wheelchair to doing bike marathons. Watch this fascinating video.
  • I’ve never made my own nut butter (we have a good, affordable source of organic peanut butter), but Tiffany’s recipe and suggestions at Don’t Waste the Crumbs may motivate me to try! Some of her variations sound delicious!

Have a wonderful weekend! :)

 

God’s Story: A Student’s Guide to Church History

God's Story: A Student's Guide to Church History by Brian Cosby

I’ve said before that I think familiarizing our kids with church history is important.

I was taught little to no church history growing up, beyond a cursory mention of major events like the Reformation in my history textbooks. I want my kids to have more than just this passing knowledge. I think familiarity with the major figures and events in the history of the church is essential to seeing and understanding God’s “one story” for all of history. It’s also incredibly valuable to help them establish a stable faith that isn’t blown to and fro by every new whim that comes along. And, it’s essential to understanding how we got where we are now. So, since they were very young, I’ve spent time searching out and collecting resources to make sure they’re aware of the rich heritage of our beliefs.

God’s Story: A Student’s Guide to Church History by Brian Cosby is one such resource that recently came my way. This little book is part of the “A Student’s Guide” series published by Christian Focus Publications and covers the span of church history from its Old Testament roots to the present day.
