A few weeks ago my husband told me that he had started reading about minimalism. I immediately envisioned someone living in a yurt out in the middle of nowhere, and chalked his newfound interest up to just being a fad that would pass in a few weeks. However, as learned more I was enticed by the...

The Unsettling Truth of Wisdom Commit to the Lord whatever you do, and he will establish your plans. Proverbs 16:3. Think about a time when you've had a big decision to make. Perhaps it was a move, a job, a school to apply for/attend, when to propose or when to ax the relationship. If you're...
