Books

Jesus-Justice-and-Gender-Roles_Kathy-Keller-194x300download

Ok, so I have read both of these books recently and even though Keller and Evans came to kind of different conclusions, and even though I don’t agree with everything in either one of these books, I learned a lot from both of them and they were both super interesting. — Erin

A year of biblical womanhood: How a Liberated Woman Found Herself Sitting on Her Roof, Covering Her Head, and Calling Her Husband “Master” by Rachel Held Evans

Jesus, Justice, and Gender Roles by Kathy Keller

Right now Matt Chandler’s The Explicit Gospel is turning the way I think about God and the Gospel upside down. It’s a must read, especially if you’ve grown up in the church. — Whitney

Don’t forget to check out the blogs of the gals who guest wrote for us this month. Kait at A Lovely Forgotten and Louise at Dust and Pearls. — Erin

Podcasts & People

Michael Bleecker is a worship leader for The Village Church in Texas. Here is his funny compilation of “Accidental Worship Heresies.” Sometimes we forget, worship leaders are just people too. (Don’t forget to check out their music while your on the site.) — Whitney

Videos

You’ve probably already seen this hilarity, but in case you haven’t, you really need to watch What Does the Fox Say? – Erin

Freebies

I love this productivity scheduler from Donald Miller and the folks at Storyline. It’s more about planning your mental energy than your time. Try it for a month and tell me you don’t love it. — Erin

This is so hard for me and for a lot of women. But we should be empowering, not competing. — Whitney
