Here's what we've found helpful online this week:

Trevin Wax wrote a post for The Gospel Coalition on the topic of parenting teens. He wrote, "From the moment we became parents, my wife and I have felt inadequate and unequipped to be parents. Now, at the threshold of a new stage of life, I am reminded that, just as we've had to do at every point until now, we must entrust our children to the Lord's care."  Trevin lists three fears he has entering this stage of parenting. Parents would do well to read this.

Scott Kedersha had a post on unmet expectations. He shares three reasons why unmet expectations lead to frustration and what to do about it. This is a great read for couples regardless of length of relationship.

Our friend, Marty Machowski, was interviewed by Tim Challies about writing for kid audience. With the publication of Dragon Seed, his first work of fiction, Marty is candid about the process from start to finish. Go read the interview and get Marty's books, they will aid in the spiritual enrichment of your family.
