Here are the latest batch of posts I've found helpful and encouraging.
The Gospel Coalition had a great post about discipling students. These are lessons I had to learn the hard way and regularly need to be reminded.
Paul Tripp had a post on his blog about the joyful impossibility of parenting. Great read from a pro.
Tim Elmore had a post over on Growing Leaders asking (& answering) the question are leaders are born or made. Interesting discussion with far reaching ramifications.
Hope these help and challenge you!
