Friday Faves

Chin-Grabbers for Everyone:
  • God is in the Right Now by Melissa Tagg

    Wise, wise words about the significance of today. God doesn’t time-travel. He works in the present. 

  • Mopping Haiti and My Heart is Hot by Jen Hatmaker

    Here’s what I want to know? Is it possible to read a Jen Hatmaker post and NOT get teary? Both of these made me want to go to Haiti. Adopt from Haiti. Do something with Haiti. The least we can do is sponsor a child. And in case you doubt sponsoring a child does all that much, check out the second link. 

  • Sandpaper People by Robin Dance on (in)Courage

    We all have difficult relationships in our lives. Can you imagine the difference it would make if we believed God was accomplishing a Kingdom work inside us through the difficulty? 

  • Redefining Success by Jessica R. Patch

    What is the meaning of success? Perhaps it’s not what we think it is. 

  • Wow by Olivia Ryan

    Olivia is a new friend from church and even though this post is a few weeks old, I have to share! Because oh my goodness, is it ever powerful! Especially if you are a woman who has ever or is struggling with infertility OR you believe you deserve something  you don’t already have.

    Here’s a snippet: “Oh how we long to be ‘happy’! We think we know what will make us happy too…but isn’t it so true that when you get what you want you soon become unsatisfied again?”

    Can I get an Amen? 

    This post goes hand-in-hand with Wednesday’s post, It’s All Extra. God gave us everything on that cross, everything. Yet so often, He chooses to give us beyond everything. Is that not cause for rejoicing? Should we not dance and shout and celebrate this glorious, joy-giving God?

Chin-Grabbers for Writers:
  • Does an Author Need to Have a Big Ego? by Chip MacGregor 

    According to Chip, failure does not test our character nearly as much as success does. So….should I start praying for God to test my character? 😉 Seriously, there’s a lot of great stuff in this post. 

  • Something’s Gotta Give on Seekerville

    How do you make time for what’s important? What do you do when you’re afraid to fail? Here is some very practical advice. 

 Let’s Talk: Any good posts you’d like to share from the week? Any cares, concerns, or celebrations?

  3. Thanks for sharing the great links, Katie! 🙂
    Here’s one for the young ladies/newlyweds: I first started visiting Ruthie’s blog many months ago as she talked about her trip to China. Since our nieces are from there, naturally that captured my attention. Since then, I’ve come to enjoy her posts about life, love, and faith.

    I’m continuing to lift you and your family up in prayer as God works behind the scenes in your lives. 🙂

  4. I loved Mel and Jess’s blogs! Will have to read some of the others. 🙂
