I have decided that I would like to start sharing articles or posts that I consider noteworthy during my week of reading (blogs or otherwise around the web), whether they encourage, challenge, inspire, or just flat-out make me laugh. I hope you enjoy!
On Laundry & Love Stories by Shauna Niequist – Shauna is one of my favorite Christian authors, and this beautiful post about embracing the everyday moments to write one more line of your love story each and every day… well, it is both convicting and inspiring. I loved it.
Myquillyn Smith’s new book released this week, so of course, the blogosphere is all aflutter with gushing reviews everywhere I look. I pre-ordered The Nesting Place: It Doesn’t Have to Be Perfect to Be Beautiful, and the fact is, quite simply, that it is one of the most beautiful books I’ve ever seen – and I’m taking the reading slowly so that I can enjoy every sentence. Myquillyn is better known as The Nester, from her blog by the same name, and she has richly blessed everyone who ever felt that their home (or life!) was inadequate in comparison to the magazines [and let’s face it, that’s ALL OF US]. Go buy the book today. You won’t regret it. And here are some more eloquent reviews from Edie, Sophie, Emily, and Melanie. And even more here. Have I convinced you yet?!?
Fairer Than Day by Edie Wadsworth – “We are stewards of a string of magnificent moments in a land that is fairer than day.” Read this post slowly. Enjoy every word. Edie has reached her sweet spot with her writing, and I LOVE IT.
Enjoy your weekend, friends!
