Friday Finds 2/17/17

And the weeks keep flying by! I actually have a lot to share this week (for a change)

First, as I spent another Valentine’s Day alone, I appreciated this post from Kelly Minter. In all honesty, Valentine’s Day was not a difficult day for me. In fact, some recent events in some friends’ relationships have served to remind me that it’s better to be single than in a terrible situation…

Apparently Fridays are when my sweet tooth kicks in because I am dying to try these Salted Caramel Chocolate Oreo Bars. I may stop by Kroger on the way home and buy one cookie to try to control myself.

And finally, I listened to a podcast this morning that stirred a lot of things in my heart. I am currently frustrated with the lack of depth/research in most Christian books marketed to women and this episode touched on that idea a bit. It also highlighted the many ways in which the internet/social media has provided an even bigger platform for things that are good and true but are not TRUTH. Albert Mohler refers to this as Moralistic Therapeutic Deism.

You can listen to the podcast here: Is Your Social Media Theology Changing You?

And, if you’re interested, here are a few more articles on the topic.
