Suffering and Self-Preservation

Sunrise-CrossMy Featured Blogger this week is Rebekah Durham of the blog site forty-one ten.

Rebekah, who lives with her three children in Atlanta, Georgia, is a graduate of Columbia Theological Seminary. She’s an avid reader, and a student of great thinkers like Merton, Lewis, Sayers and Chesterton (all heroes of mine, as well). She writes on “life, parenting, suffering, grief, finding grace and growing in the faith.”

What’s not to like? Nothing. I’ve yet to read anything of Rebekah’s that didn’t bless and enlighten me. My thesis is that’ll be true for you, too. Am I right?

Visit her now and find out!
