Happy Fall Harvest. Welcome back to the #LMMLinkup where we boldly share our family-friendly posts that teach, edify, and uplift us. We love posts featuring family-friendly book reviews, devotions, blogging or writing tips, and anything encompassing literacy and learning.
Today is Halloween. As a Christian, I am troubled by the dark background of this holiday and do not celebrate it as such. I hate anything demonic or evil.
How do I deal with Halloween? I did allow my daughter to trick or treat, but through the years, I encouraged my daughter to dress as a famous person from the Bible or as a Book princess. I never allow her to don a costume that represented evil. I do not want to honor Satan in any way.
I know this may sound hyper-religious to some, but I love the sacrifice Jesus made for me too much to glorify anything related to evil.
How do you approach Halloween as a Christian?
I found these very informative articles to help bring truth to the holiday. I hope you will read each and ask God for His direction about this holiday.

In other news, I wrap up my 31 Christian Women Bloggers Who Inspire a Closer Walk with Jesus series today. What a blessing this series has been to me. I have grown spiritually as a result of reading the beautiful profiles of each of these women. I want to thank all 31 of them for participating!
This series was part of the annual October Write 31 Days Challenge. 31 Days is an online writing challenge started by home blogger, Myquillyn Smith (The Nester), and now hosted by Crystal Stine, where bloggers pick one topic and write a post on that topic every day in October.
They offer their words as gifts to others to encourage and uplift, to glorify our Lord and Savior. I hope my series will bless you whether you blog or not.
I welcome all Write 31 Day participants. We are community and would love to support your endeavors this month so link up your wonderful posts this week. Are you participating in the Write 31 Day Challenge? What do you hope to accomplish and learn with your participation?
