A La Carte (1.15.15)


Should We Leave Our Children Inheritances?: “It seems inconsistent to say that an inheritance should be left because the Bible says so but then to turn around and do it very differently than the Bible explains. A better approach is to understand the reasons for inheritance, then see these not as rules to be legalistically obeyed but as underlying principles that we should weigh.”

What Happens to a Women’s Brain When She Becomes a Mother: “The artist Sarah Walker once told me that becoming a mother is like discovering the existence of a strange new room in the house where you already live. I always liked Walker’s description because it’s more precise than the shorthand most people use for life with a newborn: Everything changes.”

Study Finds More Reasons to Get and Stay Married: “A new economics paper has some old-fashioned advice for people navigating the stresses of life: Find a spouse who is also your best friend.”

Three Helps for Moms with Teenagers: “I’ve spoken with many mothers who are in the same boat as me, trying to keep our heads above water and hoping our kids don’t end up in therapy because of us.”

The Smartest Thing I Ever Said to My Wife: “So keep this little phrase in your back pocket – ‘I could be wrong.’ Believe it. Even when you think you are right. Remember we all have blind spots and are not the ultimate judge of all things. Beware being wise in your own eyes. Lord Jesus, help us to be humble.”
