Beyonce: Power or Bondage? is a piece written by Trillia Newbell, one of the growing number of women writing at the Gospel Coalition. In it she confronts the issue of feminine sexuality in the media and uses the recent Superbowl halftime show as the back drop. She writes:

It’s naïve at best for women to believe the widespread acceptance of sexual imagery will not objectify them.

Parenting Young Children – This post is literally full of thoughtful and practical parenting advice specifically dealing with young children. As a parent of young children, I’ll be saving this one and looking back on it often. You probably should too.
