Consolidating Excellence For Your Benefit

Our readers may have noticed that The Rebelution frequently posts about other blogs that deserve their attention. This is because the time for individual exceptions and individual high profile has passed. Our generation doesn’t need just a few young people to rise above societal expectations and lead responsibly—it needs a movement. The rebelution will not succeed as isolated groups but as an interconnected, transnational unit. It needs networking. It needs collaboration.

For this reason we are eager to develop relationships with like-minded individuals and groups and to draw your attention to excellent resources. Today’s post is intended to do both:

Clarissa Ramos—a former homeschooler and one of our readers—authors a beautiful blog entitled, "The David Trait: Encouraging The Pursuit of Godliness Within The Believer’s Life."

This is one of the few blogs that is worth reading just for its sidebar. Ms. Ramos has compiled, organized, and linked to many of the best Christian bloggers, ministries, devotionals, biographies, audiobooks, and sermons. She has succeeded in consolidating many of the best books addressing the topics of relationships, Biblical manhood & womenhood, as well as personal godlines and holy living, by authors such as Charles Spurgeon, John Piper, Jerry Bridges, Nancy Leigh Demoss, Elisabeth Elliot, C.J. Mahaney, Joshua Harris, and George Muller.

And that's just her sidebar! I have no doubt that the time Clarissa has spent "consolidating excellence" will serve many.

Clarissa's posts contribute to the amazing service her sidebar provides: the past week's reading on this prolific blog includes a review of C.J. Mahaney's upcoming book, Humility: True Greatness, an article by Carolyn McCulley entitled, Loving Your Husband Before You Get Married, Paths of Repentence by John Loftness, and an amazing article by Alan P. Medinger called, "A Grateful Heart: An Antidote To Lust."

Her current focus on purity has led to articles such as, How To Handle Sexual Temptation, Deterring Immorality By Counting Its Cost, and The Mature Man: Biblical Perspectives On Being A Man In Our Time.

I would encourage all of you to visit The David Trait.
Be encouraged. Be inspired. Be blessed.
