Here's what we've been reading online this week:
Our friend, Sam Luce had a post a little while ago about pain and suffering. He says, "We are also guaranteed that suffering will be momentary and also meaningful." There is purpose behind what you are going through, it is for our good. This is a message I've needed to hear on a regular basis.
Scott Kedersha had a guest post on marriage. His guest writer Andy Savage wrote, "Before you drive your marriage off a cliff, do the one thing you should have done long ago – look at your dashboard." He goes on to list 5 "warning lights" to be aware of. This will help your marriage.
Jared found this post from the New York Times on teens and summer. It ends this way, "... the sometimes unwelcome transformations that come with adolescence almost always signal that things are going just as they should." As parents we tend to freak out about a great many things we don't need to freak out about.
