A Few of My Favorite Things
I want to share with you four things I regularly look forward to. Two are daily, one is weekly and one is monthly. Here they are:

  • Tim Challies’ blog. I start my day with reading Tim Challies’ Informing the Reforming blog and his Ala Carte post. This Monday through Saturday post includes Kindle deals that he recommends, interesting and helpful links and a quote of the day. This is required reading for me.
  • Albert Mohler’s The Briefing podcast. Each day Dr. Albert Mohler presents The Briefing, a podcast with daily worldview analysis about the leading news headlines and cultural conversations. This is required listening for me.
  • Ligonier Ministries’ $5 Friday. Each Friday, Ligonier Ministries (R.C. Sproul’s ministry) offers a selection of their resources for just $5 on their website for their $5 Friday promotion. I’ve gotten some excellent deals in the past and I check out their selection each Friday morning.
  • Christianaudio’s Free Audiobook of the Month. Each month, Christianaudio offers a free audiobook to be downloaded from their website. The new audiobook is available the first day of the month, and can be downloaded anytime during the month. I’ve gotten several outstanding resources for free from Christianaudio. They also offer occasional sales, so it’s a good idea to get on their mailing list so that you can hear about the sales.

These are a few things that I look forward to each month. Do you have others that you would like to share?
