@O_wretched_man Sorry for the delay in responding! I had no idea I’d get so many comments and suggestions and I hardly have time to keep up with it! Thank you for the suggestions. I am familiar with some, but not with others, so always good to have more options. I have quite the list now of books to read and lectures to watch. If only I wasn’t working and in school full time!
You mentioned your younger sister and my heart goes out to her. We live in such a tough society for young girls, with many pressures placed on us, whether intentional or unintentional. I’m happy she has an older brother like yourself to look up to. I also have 2 older brothers (no sisters), and I can certainly say that they have been my rock and have restored my hope that all men aren’t completely awful and that there are indeed wonderful Godly men out there. They are total opposites and had completely different approaches. One is an excellent listener and never judged me. I’d go to him when I didn’t want a lecture. The other seemed to have all the answers. I’d go to him when I had questions. I hope you continue to look out for your little sister and be there for her. Older brothers are blessings!
