Part of what The Sparrow’s Home was created for was to share resources, information, and inspiration. I thought it might be beneficial to further that conversation by sharing some things that I’ve been perusing.
I would love to hear what you think, and see what you’ve had open on your desktop this week.
Here’s what I’ve been reading:
How to tell the Difference Between Laziness and Resting … at Working Mom’s Balance. Greg and I frequently quote something we heard someone say years ago which goes, “I’m not lazy, I just have a restful spirit.” We always say it and laugh. But the truth is, sometimes it’s a fine line. When you’re crazy busy (like I’ve been the past week), there’s not time for laziness, and you yearn for rest. Usually, if I’m asking myself this question, I know the answer… it’s laziness.
8 Little-Known Facts About Your Favorite Games … at Mother Nature Network. We LOVE games at our house! We play strategy games, trivia games, party games, card games, word games, you name it! This article had some interesting trivia tidbits I’ll bet you didn’t know.
10 Etiquette Rules Every Modern Woman Should Know and Practice … at Future Female Leaders. This article begins, “Your crop-top and flower headband might go out of style, but some things never do. One of those things is using proper etiquette.” Most of these tips apply equally to gentlemen, as well.
Just Because You’re Right… Doesn’t Mean You’re Not Destroying Your Marriage … at Matthew L. Jacobson Ahhh, being right. Who doesn’t love that? But at what expense? He gives a good phrase to consider using that is more likely to lead to a discussion rather than an argument. Good stuff.
Before Applauding Hillary’s Abortion Remarks, Know the One Fact She Ignored … at Mad World News I find Hillary to be one of the most despicably immoral individuals I’ve ever seen (ironically running for President against another member of that club). Her statements on late-term abortion are examined in this article by a nurse with labor and delivery experience.
To Be a Homeschooling WAHM, You Must be Freakishly Efficient … at Jimmie’s Collage This article will benefit far, far more people than the title indicates. It is jam-packed with wisdom and tangible suggestions for making the most of your time. I need to read this once a week until I’ve got it down. Jimmie, I’m making a list of my ‘Non-Negotiables’ today!
