When I say I am thrilled that LCMS Deaconess Elizabeth Ahlman has another book out, it is an understatement. Her latest release, Demystifying the Proverbs 31 Woman, is sure to be worth the effort of getting and digesting.

The answer, my friend, is blowin in the wind. Seriously. You just have to understand the sentence–and the question!–differently.
The post gets better. Trust me.
Temporary-but-timely* freebie now available: The Great American Eclipse Bible Study. From what I gather, people from Concordia Seminary, St. Louis, created ConcordiaTheology.org as a forum for conversation between theological perspectives and to help cultivate “a vigorous life of the mind in service to the Gospel.”
LCMS Deaconess Heidi Goehmann has released another women’s Bible study! Casting Stones: A Study of Ecclesiastes 3 (An I Love My Shepherd Study) is now available through Amazon in kindle and book format.
I vividly remember the first time I read, “I should fear, love, and trust in the Lord” from Luther’s Small Catechism. My little heart started to pound. I had a moment of panic, wondered whether I’d mis-learned about God! “Fear?” What exact is the fear of the Lord? And, what’s the right way to fear the Lord?
I don’t know many of the women who write Bible studies for CPH these days. I’m not sure why. It could be connected to them often being pastors’ wives spread out all over the country! Anyway, I’ve met Deb Burma briefly. She lead a retreat for the Oklahoma District Pastors’ Wives, where we had some pleasant chats. She has written a number of other books since then, and now she has another book coming out! Sip, Savor, and Drink Deeply: Receive God’s Overflowing Gifts is available for preordering.
My other thought Sunday was about daily bread. Maybe I haven’t mentioned this here yet, but I’m kind of into it. Eating and drinking, yes, cooking and preparing, yes, but also the concept and importance of it as a gift from God. And, it’s daily! That’s significant, yet too often overlooked or underappreciated. Anyway, you know how the Israelites could have no leftovers from the Passover? It’s a demonstration of a day’s bread, built on the promise that God must Himself provide for the future meals!!
I’ve finally got it: a resource page people should add to their blog-rolls. “Crafts and Crafted-for-Free Resources” is a free resource page listing free Lutheran Bible studies, devotions, coloring pages, books, etc., and listing websites, Facebook pages, and Etsy shops with Lutheran owners. The theme is reflected in the title: Crafts and Crafted-for-Free Resources. 🙂
