Week Recommendations #17

This week's recommendations: a video on love through a disability, a new perspective on "sabbatical," the new month's book club choice at She Loves, and a mom reminder for what's important

A Break: What Could Be More Important to an Overworked Christian?

Online Book Club
SheLovesMagazine's book club, The Red Couch, is starting their next selection this week. On May 7, there will be an introductory post for Getting Involved with God: Rediscovering the Old Testament by Ellen Davis. Any are welcome to join the discussions and the Facebook group. (They read one book per month.)
