When I get a moment (they are few and far between, but few is still something, right?), I tuck into a book, read an article, come across a thought-provoking message and think, this needs to be shared. Ruth’s Roundup is a post released once a month where I will share with you some content I have been engaging with over that month. You may laugh, cry, get mad, dig deeper, unfollow… who knows. Maybe it will be of use to you or someone you know. Happy browsing!
Hope for Unvaccinated People by Samuel Sey – fantastic post on a real hope in these deeply troubling times.
The Lord is my Helper by Vaneetha Risner – on Sarah Walton’s website ‘Set Apart’. I value both Vaneetha’s and Sarah’s words and wisdom on the topic of suffering. They always point me to back to Jesus, even in the toughest of circumstances of their lives. So much to reflect on in this article.
What If God Doesn’t Speak to Me by Lara d’Entremont – I found this article over at Alistair Chalmers excellent blog as part of his ‘Saturday Snippets – October 2. I think many of us may relate to this honest topic.
Treasuring Christ When Your Hands Are Full by Gloria Furman – This is a lovely little book which is packed full of gospel truth to help mothers.
Suffering by Paul David Tripp – I reviewed this book recently which gives more information, but an excellent book written from personal experience of suffering, biblical understanding and a pastoral heart from his counselling of others going through exceptionally difficult times.
Susie by Ray Rhodes Jr – This is a biography of Susannah Spurgeon, the wife of famous preacher Charles Haddon Spurgeon and I am really enjoying finding out more about her life. Susie was also a writer and went through much difficulty with illness which is another reason I wanted to read through this one.
A Certain Brightness by Philippa Ruth Wilson – One of the best devotionals and books I have ever read. Look out for my review of it in November.
Pod of the Gaps – Episode 23 – Should You Be Homeschooling Your Kids? – This was such a helpful episode (the whole podcast is great). We have started home educating our children for most of the reasons mentioned in this episode. Lots of food for thought, whether you have children or not.
Pod of the Gaps – Episode 27 – Do We Have A Death Problem? – I’ve been looking into resources on suffering, dying, death and eternal life because I have many thoughts and questions at the moment! This was a timely episode from Pod of the Gaps. I conclude, yes, we do have a death problem, but why not listen and form your own opinion.
