Are you like me in that you frequently come across articles that strike a chord with you for one reason or another, but you aren’t quite sure what to do with them? A while back, I started a Pinterest board to collect all of these pieces that sparked something in me. It’s been awhile since I shared some of my stash with you, and my board is kind of overflowing. Here’s to you finding something that strikes a chord with you!
Here’s what I’ve been reading:
7 simple ways you can kick apathy out of your marriage … at Jackie Bledsoe. Apathy may feel less contentious than outright fighting, but it’s actually much scarier.
Marriage advice for Christian wives … at Sunshyne Gray . Ouch. I saw myself in this. Have you ever thought these things?
- He won’t step up and take the role of leader.
- He doesn’t make wise decisions.
- I know better.
How to handle life after your kid goes to college … at Annie & Everything. We are facing an empty nest this fall and Annie’s wisdom spoke to my momma’s heart.
A Christian mom’s response to the self-care movement … at Cheered On Mom. “Because I totally agree with it. Except for when I don’t. Here’s my beef with modern self care and the things that I love about it too.”
What is an ‘old soul’ … at Scribbles & Sustenance. This is a lovely narrative about how being raised in the Appalachian mountain region shaped her life for the better along with a dose of Biblical wisdom for all of us. Beautiful.
Your smartphone is chopping your life into tiny, less meaningful pieces … at A Life of Productivity. This short piece articulates this truth well — “It’s impossible to savor something when we’re not paying attention to it.”
Just like Joshua … at Gwen Thielges. Spot on encouragement to be courageous even when we don’t feel courageous.
Waitressing: Preparation for my Christian walk … at Jessica Brodie. Learning to serve will serve us well as followers of Christ.
They’re not the world, they’re the bubble people … at Eric Metaxas. We recently heard ‘We are the World’ on the radio, and while it was a fun throwback, I heard something I’ve never noticed in the song before. This line, “As God has shown us… by turning stone to bread…” I looked at my husband and said, “Can you think of a place in the Bible where God did that?” It’s not there. What is in the Bible is Satan tempting Jesus to turn stone to bread, which he refutes. In doing a quick Google search (or, as we like to say…popping a Goog) on this, I came across this fantastic piece by Eric Metaxas. Clever. Witty. And spot on.
The era of the ungrateful American … at Christian Headlines. I usually enjoy watching some of the World Cup games. This year, not as much. And when I did watch, I was actively rooting against the American team because I was so sickened by what I’d been seeing from one of the team’s players. So when I read the beginning of this article, it resonated with me—“Talk about biting the hand that feeds you. I can’t fathom the ingratitude of American soccer star Meghan Rapinoe’s attitude toward America.”
