Here’s something neat: an LCMS pastor, Rev. Kirk Triplett, recently earned his doctorate, researching pastoral mental health. In particular, he studied their positive mental health as influenced by the actions of church members. Interested yet? 😉 Now he’s written a book, Affirmed: Building the Positive Mental Health of Your Pastor, and he has started a kickstarter to raise funds to get it into the best shape possible.

I love Rachel Kovaciny. Have I mentioned that lately? She takes folk stories and reimagines them into real Western life. 🙂 She writes both books and short stories (which often relate to books) and her latest is Run, Run, a human twist on the Gingerbread Man & a short story sequel to One Bad Apple.
If I’m remembering correctly, the CPH Reads summer program started yesterday. Good thing I have lots of book recommendations for your summer reading! Including The Bulletproof Missionary by Keriz Rosado, book 3 of 6 in The Missionaries to America series by Mission Nation Publishing, a Lutheran organization I blogged about a while ago. I review it below.
