She Reads and honoring parents

Hello, if you've come over from my Forgotten No More devotion that ran yesterday about the children in Ecuador. Be sure and check out my post from yesterday to see Mauricio.

Meanwhile, have you read today's P31 devotion? It's by my She Speaks roommate Ariel Allison. This year was the first time in eons I'd roomed with someone outside the P31 team at the conference and boy was I glad I did. Love her! She is also the main contributor now at P31's She Reads blog. Have you been there? This week she is talking about the father-daughter relationship on the blog and the commandment to honor our parents.

I found out that's a sore spot for many when I asked my readers about it in this post and this one. That command fingers and pokes at old wounds and disappointments we’re certain we were never meant to have. Nonetheless, there sits the command — in the middle of the 10 Commandments — with no exceptions or qualifications noted. Jump in the discussion over there today, or ask Ariel a question about it. She's co-authored a non-fiction book on the father-daughter relationship so she is a great person to ask.

Gotta run and teach at the university! I pray great blessings on your day!


  1. Gotta read the devo today! Thanks for the reminder!

  2. Thanks Rachel! It was a blast rooming with you as well - one of the highlight of my trip.

    And thanks for sending gals over to She Reads. We've had a very tender conversation this week. Old wounds heal slowly.


  3. I just might have to pop over and red the She Reads blog tonight...cool:)

    I pray blessings on your day, too!

    Have a wonderful weekend,


Chime in.
