Good Reads

Happy Saturday!

Looks like we'll finally see the sun for the first time in about a week, so I'm going to go soak it up today. But first I thought I'd share some of my favorite posts of the past couple of weeks.

I could SO relate to this post, "Motherhood as a Mission Field" on the "Desiring God" website. If you have young children, you MUST read this. And even if your kids are grown up, go read it too.

Rachelle Gardner is a literary agent who writes a fantastic blog for writers. In this post, "Write Your Truth" she gives fantastic advice about being real.

Oh my goodness, I love rhubarb. Rhubarb reminds me of my Grandpa Earl's huge garden that was full of rhubarb, among other things. Tasty Kitchen did an entire post of rhubarb recipes last week, so go check it out . . . if you have any rhubarb left, that is.

Donald Miller encouraged us to be "Secretly Incredible" this week. I've been thinking about that post a lot. Rather than talk about being great, just be great by doing something. Hmmmmm.

Glenda asked a great question this week: are you "Honest to Blog"?

That's it for me. Have a great weekend. I'm just hoping the power stays on!

  1. Thanks for the sweet nod.


  2. Girl! I went ahead and read every one of your recommendations...except for the rhubarb recipe. I'm not a fan.

    Thank you!! Your links were awesome!

    Love ya!

  3. Seriously...let us talk about this region difference... of course I have heard of it and know a bit about what it looks like... but what is rhubard??? I haven't a clue.

    Would my you-don't-know-what-this- is- really-like regional equivalent be okra... or grits?

    Hmmm... rhubarb... strange to my Southern ears.

  4. Thanks...great suggestions..will check them out

    Oh reminder...the book I suggested isn't from a Christian worldview...a view things more worldly, but at this point I have still enjoyed

    now to go blog hope on your suggestions.

  5. Oh. My. Goodness!!! Hillcrest, you don't know what rhubarb is??!! I'm sure they have it in the South. You probably have seen it but thought it was a weed. It's a stalk, red in color when it's ripe, with a huge leaf on top. You don't eat the leaf, and the stalk is very sour, but when it's sweetened up with a lot of sugar it is DELICIOUS. Ask at your grocery store--they probably have some. The growing season is kind of short, though, so grab it while you can.

    I'll be chuckling about that all week. :)
