Friday Links are a round-up of my favorite posts/videos/projects/photos from around the web.
Hello friends! Happy Friday…finally! I’ll be honest—this week kicked my butt. I think it was the time change, but I never quite recovered from Monday. Still, it was a really good week. Through a little story that turned into something really BIG, God reminded me that people are good and that he is constantly at work in our world, moving and shaping our understanding of what love really looks like. Have a great weekend, friends—and be kind. It will make all the difference. XO
For your weekend reading pleasure…
- This post on the art of making friends as an adult (and why it feels SO hard).
- This post from Jeff Goins on teaching shame and the power of being comfortable in our own skin. I LOVE this so much. So much truth in these words. You were told to hide your gift, that the world didn’t need what you had to offer. But those were lies. We all have a great work in us, some unsung song demanding to be let out. Many of us, if we are attentive enough, can hear the music, vibrating in our bones. So maybe it’s time to unlearn our shame, and once again remember to dance.
- This honest and insightful post on prayer as a connector from Jamie, the Very Worst Missionary. We’ve all been there—questioning why we pray and if it really matters. And that’s ok.
- This article on four kinds of introversion. Really interesting (especially for an introvert like me).
