I wasn’t going to do a Pick of the Clicks this week, since I’ve been preparing for a BIG WEEK on this little blog next week… but now it’s the weekend and I have a couple of gems sitting on open tabs on my browser, so I thought I’d send them your way because they are just too good:
If you are a parent or even remotely connected to children or education in any way, if you read nothing else this week, read this: Dear Parent, About THAT Kid by Miss Night Mutters.
And if you are a woman and a Christian, and read nothing else this week, read this from Esther Emery over at SheLoves: Too Much Peacemaking.
In a similar vein, I got all pumped reading Kelley Nikondeha’s call to action with The Rebel For Justice.
I loved Amber Haines’ very beautiful tribute to her husband on their Fifteen Year Anniversary: A Story of My Body.
My online friend Lore Ferguson has repeatedly recommended the sermon series from Matt Chandler entitled A Beautiful Design, and even though I seldom listen to online sermons, I took her advice and have listened to three so far (numbers 7, 8 and 9). They are FANTASTIC. I know I’ve been reading a lot of egalitarian literature (and sharing some of those links with you) in the past months as I continue to think through the womens’ question, but these sermons were the kind of refreshing-and-beautiful that reminded me of all the very best complementation teaching. I sighed. I thought. I can’t wait to listen to the rest.
This little video clip from Glennon Melton on How Trying To Save (her) Sex Life Taught Her to Love Her Own Body is absolutely worth a few minutes of your time. Seriously. NO matter what size clothing you wear.
This was a particularly beautiful time lapse of Chicago by Eric Hines. I”m hoping to visit Chicago next year, and this video made me all the more eager.
And on my blog this week? Most popular were the 21 teeny tiny book reviews, and the update on where we are in a difficult season with our son entitled FTT (Failure to thrive), Or, Why We Said Yes To Preschool.
Thanks for reading, and happy clicking!
