It has been a while since I last blogged. Here’s an update . . . On the weight loss front, it seems I am hovering between 18 and 20 pounds lost. I am not thrilled by this, but I am still on my WOE, and I am happy that I am maintaining at this point. I am not doing anything drastic to change this trend until I return from the PCA’s general assembly and then a short vacation. However, I do plan to stick with the current WOE while travelling, so as not to have any vacation gain. When I return, I will start to come up with a new plan to get the poundage off.

Reading . . . I have done little. I am still on the same books. Since school has been out, my children’s activities have kept me busy. It looks like that will be the case for much of the summer. Hopefully, I’ll squeeze some reading in around their stuff. I have, however, been leading a women’s Bible study on The Shorter Catechism, and that has been enjoyable. I am using GI Williamson’s study guide. It is very helpful. Also, there’s a great new family devotional based on the Shorter Catechism called Training Hearts, Teaching Minds. I have used some of the readings in this for illustrations/application ideas. We haven’t used it for family devotions yet, but it looks good, as the readings are short enough for little attention spans, but meaty enough for older children and adults.

  1. I did see it in the bookstore at GA. We have now used it for 2 weeks for family devotions. I still like the book, but I can make a couple more comments about it. First, if you don’t like short devotionals, this one isn’t for you. Reading each day’s selection takes 5 minutes or less. Second, the catechism questions have been modernized. So if you want to really emphasize the catechism aspect, you may not want to use the question as it has been worded in this book. One last thing, I ordered it from Amazon as it was less there than Barnes and Noble or P&R’s website.
