The Buschel Digest: January 2018

Here are the highlights of what I have read including fiction, non-fiction, and around the internet for the month. I am reading this Chronological Bible reading plan six days a week and the kindle version is on sale right now for $2.99. It is always a great day to start reading your Bible and highly recommend this plan by George Guthrie.

Apple Investors Urge Action on iPhone Addiction Among Kids

Parents, Please Don’t Let Your Kids Watch Logan and Jake Paul

If your kids have access to YouTube you must read this article! “He leveraged a suicide for content. For attention. For views. What Logan Paul did was messed up, no doubt, but what Logan Paul did is simply a single strain of a much larger, multi-faceted disease. Logan Paul’s suicide video stunt exposed the world to a major problem with YouTube and a major problem with social media entertainment in general.”

How to Read Through the Bible in a Year with Your Kids

This is hands down one of my favorite articles I have read this year, and I will still be saying that in December too!

Intentional Parenting: Family Discipleship by Design (By: Tad Thompson)

If I had to pick one word to describe this book it would be convicting. So so convicting. I am thankful for this book and how much it made evaluate my own spiritual growth. I highlighted so much of this book below are just a few! I would recommend it for anyone, not just parents.

Taken (By: L.N. Cronk and Jenn Faulk)

Ugggg. This book. I was so sad for it to end. I was completely surprised by the direction this story went and could not put it down. I might have stayed up until 1am reading it when Josh was on shift. This never happens because I value my sleep so much but I seriously could not stop reading. This is a stand alone book but also is part of the Chop Chop Series by L.N. Cronk. You can read my review on those books HERE. I have read every book these authors have written and love that they are combining their talents! You don’t have to read the series to enjoy this book there is just a crossover storyline.
