I came across these and wanted very much to share them with anyone interested in some extracurricular reading. I have hand-picked these out of hundreds of possible posts. I know these will be a blessing.
There is somewhat of a mixture here. Some will be links to articles on mental illness, and others on Christian discipleship. And maybe, this might become a regular feature here on BB. (Who knows what lurks in my brain? lol) But what you find below, may be an incredibly rich blessing for you.
I. Lithium, “The Metal Marvel”
Discover Magazine has always been a good source of fascinating insight. Lithium for 50 years has been the most effective treatment for bipolar disorder.
II. The Best Online Bible, Ever
An exceptional site that I use daily. (It’s like a carpenter’s favorite hammer.) Almost 30 translations, search topics or themes. It is fresh and modern. I use it whenever I need to “cut & paste” a passage into a post. I’ve tried many and yet, this remains the best.
III. Intelligence Linked to Bipolar Disorder
Research has indicated that bipolar disorder may be up to four times more common in young people who were straight-A students. A link between high IQ and bipolar disorder has been proposed for many years.
IV. 259,731 Bible Questions Answered!
Got Questions? A solid and comprehensive place for anyone to sort things out. It’s easy to navigate. It is a “safe” place to think out loud about hard things. Do you have a question about God, Jesus, the Bible, or theology? Have you ever needed help understanding a Bible verse or passage? Are there any spiritual issues in your life for which you need advice or counsel?
Alltop is essentially a news aggregator— they supply a one page site of continuously updated links, on a topical base. They do a lot of broad subjects (I haven’t used it, except for BP news.) I don’t consult it often, but when I do it is almost always great. ( Alltop has started showing Broken Believer posts, yeah!!)
