Helpful Hints Thursday

I’ve been wondering for a while what I might slip in the Thursday slot on this blog. Monday, Wednesday, and Friday I try to post a thought of some sort. Tuesday is book review day. Thursday was a little lonely! So, I thought I’d go with a totally different approach on Thursdays: some sort of helpful hint.

Well, at least sharing something that’s been helpful to me and my family. Hopefully at least someone else will find each suggestion helpful!

There’s no telling what will end up in these posts. Books that don’t make the review schedule. Links. Product suggestions. Activities. Ideas and suggestions.

I’m going to start with a link. And yes, I’ll go ahead and confess that I’m a little biased. But, other people do like this link, too!

I recommend to you my darling husband’s blog.


  1. If he has an opinion, he can clearly back it up. Reading his blogs, whether you agree with him or not, can open your eyes to see another side of an issue, help you solidify why you do or do not agree with an issue, or simply teach you more about how to clearly express your opinion. I love that about him – always have. You can disagree with him, but it’s hard to flat out argue with him because he articulates so well.
  2. His topics are varied. One day he might write on thoughts from Scripture. Another day on sports. Another on politics. Another on random life. If you don’t find something that’s up your alley one day, come back the next. He’s well-spoken on many topics!
  3. This one is the most fun for me. Doug posts his sermons and their outlines every week, but then he goes beyond that as well. Have you ever wondered what gets left out of a sermon? What things come up in the course of study and preparation but just aren’t shared from the pulpit for whatever reason? Well, Doug blogs about those things.
  4. He is very well read and posts a book review a week like I do. But his genres are a little more diverse. His reviews are great and worth the read!

Now, keep in mind that he is a full-time pastor and carries a decent load of seminary classes as well. So, there are weeks that you will only see the sermon podcasts/outlines and the book reviews. But even then, it’s a good read.


I am a homeschooling preacher's wife and managing editor for the Well Planned Gal. But, I also love to write just for the fun of it. I also process best through writing, and my thoughts tend to flow from things I learn through the Bible, interacting with my family, and moving through life in general. Thanks for joining me in my not quite ordinary journey.

What are your thoughts? I'd love to hear from you!
