I Love this New Tool on my iPad Pro: NotePlan
One app for my calendar, tasks, journal, and notes. Fully customizable and extraordinarily useful! NotePlan 2 is an app for macOS and iOS that enables you to manage your calendar, notes, and todos all in one place. It brings together many of the elements I love about Bullet Journaling and Markdown formatting. It also combines systems that I have historically managed using separate apps for each—notes, tasks, and calendar. This unique approach to those systems is what made this app so appealing to me.
A Great Scripture Memory Tool from DWELL
This is a simple reminder of A Great Scripture Memory Tool Ancient Meets the 21st Century with the memorization strategies and resources from DWELL! I like the key fob, temporary tattoos, and the 3×4 cards that get the Scriptures in front of you all day long, wherever you go.
A Great New Assessment: The Four Tendencies from Gretchin Rubin
It might sound like a dry question, but understanding how you respond to expectations is extremely helpful in everyday life. This free assessment is super helpful and fun! Upholders respond readily to outer and inner expectations (I’m an Upholder, 100%) Questioners question all expectations; they’ll meet an expectation if they think it makes sense—essentially, they make all expectations into inner expectations
Obligers meet outer expectations, but struggle to meet expectations they impose on themselves Rebels resist all expectations, outer and inner alike
A Really Good Read from Scott Sauls: Gathering for Worship in a COVID-19 Age
A fresh look at the separation of church and state in regard to Covid-19: I understand firsthand why church people dislike gathering restrictions. Like casinos and restaurants, schools and concert venues, sports stadiums, and protest rallies, a congregation’s ability to thrive depends on people meeting together in crowds. The practice of faith is as much public as it is personal. This is why the Bible is adamant that congregations not forsake the habit of worshiping together (Hebrews 10:24-25).

A Quote from Terry Hershey
“Before we mount our steads to slay the dragons of discontent, let us rest. Did you know that the first thing God called holy was not a place? It was time. The time to rest. In rest, in quiet, in Sabbath, we may be able to see prayer as living the moment with open hands and an open heart. Open and awake to the wealth of life’s quirky offerings. In that space my heart can expand, to receive those parts of my life, all those parts… the messy, the uncertain, the doubts, the insecurity, the shadows. Just as Jesus made space for the disenfranchised. So too, there is room in my life and heart for the fragile things.”
