This YouTube video of Mark Dever has some great ideas about Creating a Reading Culture in Your Church. Had to smile when he mentioned that he keeps extra copies of John Stott's book Basic Christianity on hand to give away because I, too, have given away several copies of it over the years.
Voddie Baucham posted about why some labels are not only helpful but sometimes are necessary.
Dianne at Theology for Girls has a short post about Rachel Saint with YouTube links to an old TV show she was on many years ago. (I haven't had time to watch them yet - hope to do that this evening - but they should be iinteresting.)
******************************* And just for fun:
The Pioneer Woman has posted a yummy sounding recipe for Macaroni salad which I plan to try soon.
Paper-Source has a tutorial showing how to fold a paper wallet.
This sounds like fun - a MailArt call for kids in a camp in New Hampshire. Those lucky kids get to take a MailArt class that will have tons of great incoming MailArt from all over the nation.
JetPens is hosting another giveaway; this time it's for a $25 JetPens gift certificate.
Mrs. Duffy of LetterMatters shares about a creative letter she received. I've used recipe cards as the base for my "MailArt" post cards for awhile now but I've never tried combining them with other assorted papers & bags, etc. as the pages of one letter. Interesting idea. I love seeing what other people have done with mail to use as a sort of jumping off place for things I can try, a way of getting the creative juices flowing: "if they used ______ maybe I could do ______," My most recent was a recycled, (clear plastic) one gallon water bottle that I decorated on the outside & stuffed a T-shirt into for Father's Day. Turns out Dad liked it so much he still hasn't taken the shirt out & is showing to to others as is. Unfortunately, I was in such a hurry to get it mailed that I forgot to take pictures of it.

I'm not sure where to put this blog or how to classify it. This blogger is a daughter of a friend and while I'm pretty sure she's a Christian, it isn't a Christian blog, or books & reading or letter writing & mail art. It's basically about their travels so I'm putting it here for now: Jen's blog: 3toGo
