Friday Links are a round-up of my favorite posts/videos/projects/photos from around the web.
Happy Friday! This Friday is even better than most because we’re currently beach bound with some of our best friends. I can’t wait to have my toes in the sand, a good book in my hands, and the sound of crashing waves filling my head. We are so looking forward to a few days of doing nothing but having fun and relaxing with people we love. Here’s to a beautiful (and sunny) weekend—hope it’s a great one! XO
For your weekend reading pleasure…
- This open letter to the abducted Chibok schoolgirls from Malala Yousafzai.
- A list of 10 Ways to Simplify Your Life (#5 is so, so key).
- This post about a lay leader’s thoughts on her dying church. There’s some really good stuff here. I wish we had loved Christ more and our church less. I have seen us make many decisions over the years where in spite of prayers for God’s leadership, the control people in our church rejected what many of us felt was the clear leading of God. They always claimed they were trying to save our church. It did not work. We’re gone.
