Weekend Reads

Here are a few good reads for your weekend…

when you feel like it all depends on you – Martha Kimball

“Even a small walk in your neighborhood or a nearby trail with the intent of noticing the small things, the hidden things that are growing and living without a hint of your involvement, can be helpful.  It can help loose the tight bonds of worry and fear and self-sufficiency, to a joyful restful dependency on a good God.”

When You Finally Give Up on Trying to Meet the Whole World’s Expectations – Ann Voskamp

“Our problem isn’t one caused by our mothers or the mothers that came before them; it’s a tension of Biblical proportions exacerbated by the enemy of our Creator.  The truth remains that we were brought forth in the midst of a battle regarding our worth, purpose, and our assumed role in this life.”

How I Became an Accidental Optimist – Marian Vischer

“Words continue to help me name an unspoken thing and lead me along an unexpected route to possibility.  I can’t explain it.  But every time I’m overwhelmed on the inside, I try to write through the overwhelm to see what comes out on the other side.  Something always does.”

Let’s Believe the Best About Each Other – Holley Gerth

“In other words, I will give you grace for today.  I will give you encouragement, help and accountability for tomorrow.  And I will always point you back to Jesus.  Without Him, there is no hope for who we are or who we’re becoming.”

Have a great weekend, friends.
