The purpose of this page is to provide a location for me to put things that do not really have anything to do with my blog, but that I find to be particularly useful. These are resources that I use for making content on my site, sermon preparation, or youth devotionals. Basically, the “resources” are going to be links to webpages that I frequently go to.
Take some time to look at these different resources categories. The resources here may be useful for you as they have been for me. While not necessarily a part of my main blog, this page is still a part of who I am and consists of things I use on a daily basis. I hope that you find some use here. If you have any suggestions for me, be sure to let me know as I’ll update the resources page when needed.
The first link that I would like to provide is one that I am sure most people are quite familiar with. Bible Gateway is a great website when you are trying to find some Bible verses or passages. There are a ton of different translations that you can use as well as other resources on the website. I use this site all the time when I am putting together a devo or a sermon (It is also really nice to be able to copy and paste when putting together slideshows). It also provides a verse of the day. To my knowledge, this has to be one of the very best Bible resources on the internet.

Next up in Biblical resources is one that is made for smartphones. If you have a smartphone and you do not have YouVersion downloaded, you are missing out. It is similar to Bible Gateway, but this app allows you to set up daily reading lists with reminders. It is nice to have an alert go off every day that reminds you to read. The reading plans are as diverse as the versions of the Bible. Currently, I am using a reading plan that guides me through the Bible in chronological order. Also, its FREE! All great resources should be free.

If you are looking to do a word study or are trying to figure out the deeper meaning behind a word of phrase in the Bible, the best resource that I have that is also free is Blue Letter Bible. Here you can look up a particular verse and then you can look at the words in the original Greek or Hebrew. This is helpful because sometimes things are lost in translation or the meaning behind a phrase is change for the sake of making sense in English. I always check this site when I come across something that is weird or confusing.
