To Love Life and See Good Days
D. Eaton explores with the Bible says about having a good life.
- How many of us desire to love life and see good days? My guess is it is all of us. Only the jaded have abandoned this hope. This desire for the good life may seem like something from the self-help section, but it is directly from scripture.
Join us for an E.B. White Spring!
Sarah Mackenzie is reading E.B. White this spring.
- I have a theory.
I bet that if I were to ask a hundred of today’s children’s book authors and illustrators to name a book that had a profound impact on them, I bet an unusually large number of those authors and illustrators would mention the work of E.B. White.
The Lord Who Heals
Rachel Craddock reminds us of one of God’s names.
- A few weeks ago, both my family of six and my fifth-grade homeroom were hit with a stomach bug. As I washed sheets, held buckets, and disinfected desktops, I couldn’t help but beg the Lord for healing from this common, modern-day plague. In my prayers, I called on Yahweh Rapha, the Hebrew name for God which means, The Lord Who Heals You.
Daniel Nayeri Loves The Silk Road (and Oklahoma)
Jonathan Rogers’ new podcast episode with Daniel Nayeri is worth this listen—and The Many Assassinations of Samir, Seller of Dreams worth the read.
- Besides being an author, Daniel Nayeri is a publisher, a pastry chef, and a raconteur. His book Everything Sad Is Untrue (a True Story), won many awards, and with good reason. His new book is The Many Assassinations of Samir, The Seller of Dreams.

Death – and Worse!
L. M. Helm digs into how stories point us to the great Story.
- What’s a great story made of?
No. Not necessarily.
Théa Rosenburg reviews a book of prayers for kids.
- I suppose every family picks up its own lingo, usually after an adorable toddler misspeaks and her invented word becomes enshrined in the family vernacular. Thus, when something is crooked in our house—a sock, say, or a ponytail—we call it “fonky.” Or when something is of the ordinary, tried-and-true variety, we don’t call it “regular”—we say it’s “reggly.”
