- Did Moses Change God's Mind? by Mike Leake. Philip and I were just talking about this with some friends of ours last Sunday night. Fascinating discussion.
- Bosses Don't Give Gold Stars and Other Career Advice from Carolyn McCulley.
- Beliefs Are Not Set in Stone, Except for When They're On Tablets by Derek Rishmawy at Mere Orthodoxy. Thoughtful, Biblical, and gracious answer to a misguided post by a well known author.
- 10 Things Every Christian Should Know About Islam by Zane Pratt. Found this very helpful.
- Dodging Porn With Good Old Fashioned Dodgeball by Dannah Gresh.
- The Benefit of a Large Family: Pack Life by Erik Raymond. (Note: My one point of disagreement with this post is his point about sharing. My husband and I have allowed our children to have some things that are just theirs and do not have to be shared and some things that are for everyone to play with. Otherwise it's not really sharing. Sharing implies making a choice. "Forced sharing" is communism.)
- 10 Things You Should Know About Homeschool Moms by Kris at Weird, Unsocialized Homeschoolers.
- The Case for Preserving the Pleasure of Deep Reading by Annie Murphy Paul.

- My mother-in-law found this one: 1940's Chevy Dealer Re-Opens to Auction Off 500 Time Capsule Cars.
How cool is this wallpaper?! (Just wish it was London instead of Paris...)
OK, here's another one. I would LOVE to use this in our new home, even if it was just a wall. (And I'm guessing that would be a stretch, considering what it probably costs. But a girl can dream!)
So, what caught your eye this week?
