Favorite Finds Friday: 06-16-17

Due to a bit of a hectic schedule this week, I decided to do something a little different. Instead of a Bible study or theological article, I have decided to share some articles and videos with you that I have found this week to be edifying and helpful.

As you know, I listen to a lot of podcasts and read a lot of blogs so, here are just a few of the stars that I found this week.

Platypus: The Mystery MammalFriday Favorite Finds: 06-16-17
