Thank you. Thank you. Thank you. I’ve loved hearing your responses to this post, and I’ve had great conversations with so many of you about what’s going on in your life, what you need to grow your faith, and all the common ground we stand on. If you haven’t had a chance to answer, I’d still love to hear from you!
Also, some news on October: I overbooked. Or maybe I didn’t overbook, it’s just a season of abundance with some stomach flu thrown in to add to the madness. Either way, I’ve discovered that giving three messages to three different audiences, a writer’s conference, a creative vision retreat, homeschooling, a baby shower, and fighting the flu off from my home? Is a lot. So instead of the posts I’d originally planned for this month I’m going to be sharing some old favorites. Let me know if there is something in particular you’d like to see.
For your weekend:
The Chronicles of Narnia coming to Netflix?: I have super big feelings about this. (As we always do with things that feel personal.) I loved the version of The Lion, The Witch, and The Wardrobe on the big screen, but the other movies? Deeply lacked some of the truth bombs from Lewis’ original book. I’m holding out hope though because Netflix has done a great job transforming books into movies.
A Willingness to be Bad: Was it Spurgeon who said, “Anything worth doing is worth doing badly.”? Either way, my word for this year is “practice” and I’m finding that means doing many things badly. I love this perspective.
Audiobook Deals: I’ve had this link bookmarked forever, but as we head into cooler, cuddlier months I though it might be helpful to share. You don’t have to have an Audible account to take advantage of these deals, just download, pass out some crayons or legos, and cuddle up with a warm beverage.
For the Mom Who Keeps Blowing It: I could blame it on the busy, but that would discount all the times everything is working in my favor and I still blow it. In fact, this applies, mother or not, to all of us who feel like we blow it. All our hearts need this sometimes.
Our daily bits of life are always over on Instagram and I’d love for you to join me over there. Favorite from this week?
