Good Reads

Boy, I've read some good stuff this week. I hope you get a few quiet minutes to read some of these this weekend.

I have always been so thankful that my kids really like going to church, but I am well aware that not every teenager likes it that much. And sometimes parents even have to force their kids to go to church. Imagine. Joanne wrote an excellent post about how she and her husband handled the problem.

I've already written about how I've been praying for my girls this week, but here's another wonderful post about praying for our daughters. Written by Lysa, need I say more?

Wondering about the new movie, "Eat. Pray. Love."? I have too. I haven't seen the movie . . . yet . . . but I've been considering it. Kay has written some great thoughts about the movie from a Christian perspective which I found very interesting.

I'm pretty sure this recipe is in my future.

If you need to choose just one post from this list, make sure you read this one. And then have your spouse read it too. You think I'm kidding? I'm not. At all. Go read.

And enjoy your weekend!



  1. I know that recipe is in my future, I'm making it this afternoon!

    Thanks for sharing, these are definitely some good reads indeed.

  2. Thanks, Shelly, for the link on the movie review. Loved the review and loved her blog.


  3. Shelly, Thanks for turning me on to your blog. I see why people are following it.

  4. I've been wanting to see that movie. I haven't read the book. I have a feeling it will bother me, knowing what little I know about the premise. Still, I'm dying to see it for some reason. I'll be curious to know what you think of it. Wish you lived close enough that we could go together!! :-)

  5. Laurie, let me know how it turns out!

    Glenda, I hope you'll follow Kay--she's great!

    Mark, you're making me blush. Thank you!

    Jo-Lynne, I wish we lived closer too. Hope to see you in January!

  6. I enjoyed Kay's review too. And I've been avoiding reading the book/watching the movie because I feel like it misses the point. But still it would make for a wonderful girls night movie :)

  7. Don't ever send me over to the Pioneer Woman recipe craziness ever, ever again. Now I've got a grocery list and a day of cooking ahead of me. I just couldn't resist.
