Inspiration: My Week

Since moving, I feel like I have been giving, going, greeting, grieving, and guessing. With little time for anything else in between. Although this last week was no exception, there were a few bright spots to add inspiration to my days. Come and take a peek…

Best Blog Post...

Is there anything better than one of your favorite bloggers posting on another one of your favorite blogs on a topic you love? (The answer is no!)

My heart lept for joy when I even glanced the title of Sharon Hodde Miller’s post “It’s Your Job to Break the Women’s Ministry Stereotype” over at Her.meneutics. The blog only got better with each line. Sharon’s messages are intelligent, and I appreciate her ongoing call to humility. A perfect combination!

The Bravermans…

Who knew Parenthood was so good? And am I the last person on earth to figure out that Mae Whitman, who plays Lauren Graham’s daughter, is the little girl from One Fine Day?!

The Bravermans are a family I want to know. They love one another and many of the conversations could easily be taking place in any house on your own street. Each character, from the oldest generation down to the youngest, has their own struggles and victories. I can relate.

Also, great music to go with the great writing!

Kristin’s New Website…

Kristin Ritzau is one of my favorite people in the world. I’ve been following her blog for several years and counted down the days until her book was released last year. Finally, last May, I got to meet Kristin when she came to Colorado Springs to stay with me and host a workshop.

I’m excited about Kristin’s newest steps. One of them includes the launch of her new site over at I invite you to take a peek. But I warn you. You will want to stay longer than a few minutes or else return with a pot of tea and a journal.

There’s another reason you’ll want to visit her site. I am offering you a FREE copy of A Beautiful Mess if you can find where my full name is mentioned on her new website. Be the first to leave a comment on this post telling me where you found my name and mention the phrase immediately after it, and I will send you a copy of her book.

Final Favorites:

My new Tweed Hat….
