I read six books in the month of January, including Alisa Childers’ Another Gospel. I finished that one plus two others in the course of four days while we were traveling. (Don’t audiobooks make drive time so much more enjoyable on those long road trips?) But it took me nearly four weeks to finish the next three titles after we got back home and resumed our normal schedule. Read on for my impressions of each work. 6 Books I Read in January Understood Betsy by Dorothy Canfield Fisher A young orphan girl is as timid and nervous as the three spinster aunts who are bringing her up.

Today I’m sharing this One Who Serves Coloring Page as a reminder that every believer is called to a life of serving others. This is made clear in the verse illustrated in this free printable: “But it is not this way with you, but the one who is the greatest among you must become like the youngest, and the leader like the servant. For who is greater, the one who reclines at the table or the one who serves?

Since today is the birthday of our 37th US president, I thought I’d share a Richard Nixon coloring page. It features a quote I really like: Those who hate us only win if we hate them back. Richard Nixon It’s a hard sentiment, but true. Which is why the Bible tells us not to repay evil for evil (1 Peter 3:9), but to overcome evil with good. (Romans 12:21) It’s also why Jesus tells us to “Love your enemies, do good to those who hate you, bless those who curse you, and pray for those who spitefully use you.” (Luke 6:27-28) click to print Richard Nixon Coloring Page Although I was alive when Ni ..read more
