Here is a list of some links Ruth finds helpful and/or inspiring. Be sure to check back every so often, because she'll add to this page as time goes on. Hopefully these are helpful for you!

Lutheran Church–Missouri Synod

This site explains what the Lutheran Church–Missouri Synod believes. If you aren't familiar with Lutheran beliefs, here's a great way to learn about them. There is even a link for “Frequently Asked Questions,” as well as a section on the “What About” series. These are invaluable resources that cover 27 different topics, such as the Bible (how we got it, how it was translated, etc), Baptism, Lutheran Worship, Creation and Evolution, and many more.

Concordia Publishing House

Concordia Publishing House is the publishing house for the LCMS. Here you can find great resources on devotions, Bible studies, children's books, music, and more. Ruth may be a bit biased, but she hears there's a great debut novel out there. She may or may not be the author…

Sister, Daughter, Mother, Wife

This is a blog that focuses on “Living our vocations as Lutheran women.” It's written by women, for women, and is “an online source of Lutheran encouragement, community, and advice. This is where you can find discussions of relationships in a Law and Gospel context. Topics range from living the single life, to building cross-generational friendships, to teaching children to behave respectfully in church.” Ruth is an occasional guest author on this blog and re-blog their posts from time to time as well.

Raising Godly Children

Here's another blog Ruth writes for occasionally. As the title suggests, it's a blog for parents who strive to raise godly children in a world that's anything but. There are some great articles on there that she hopes are as helpful to you as they are to her.

Answers in Genesis

This is an excellent resource for creation and evolution. Founder Ken Ham has compiled a great deal of information that is helpful in understanding and responding to evolutionist arguments. There are archived articles, newsletters, and even online books for free. Definitely worth your time if you have questions about either creation or evolution.
