My monthly consolidation of random things I’ve enjoyed reading, remembering or looking at this past month. Hopefully you can relate to or enjoy these pieces of thought these other word-loving thinkers have shared.
“Writing a book is an adventure. To begin with, it is a toy and an amusement; then it becomes a mistress, and then it becomes a master, and then a tyrant. The last phase is that just as you are about to be reconciled to your servitude, you kill the monster, and fling him out to the public.”
“Running is dreaming with your feet.”

“Jesus Christ is the same yesterday, today, and forever. Do not be carried about with various and strange doctrines. For it is good that the heart be established by grace, not with foods which have not profited those who have been occupied with them.”Hebrews 13:8-9
“Do not speak evil of one another, brethren. He who speaks evil of a brother and judges his brother, speaks evil of the law and judges the law. But if you judge the law, you are not a doer of the law but a judge.”James 4:11
- Plans vs Choices – A Meditation —> “We have to be bold when we make plans, audacious, hopeful. We have to be honest and ambitious and driven. But when we make choices we have to be brave. And we have to have faith that the decisions we make when the time comes, will be the right ones.”
- Of Neon Signs —> what plans and choices look like when God steps into the picture.
Raising the Littles:
- Running Makes Me a Better Mom —> “Moms, never ever feel guilty about taking time to do something that makes you feel good. A happy mom makes for a happy family. <3″
- Just Guide Gently —> Raising Littles
- Keep You Close —> “You are not a burden to carry, an inconvenience to manage. … I keep you close because that is where you belong at this stage of your life.”
Important to me:
- Drowning Doesn’t Look Like Drowning ——-> If you don’t read anything else I link to, please read this. In my four summers working as a lifeguard I have jumped in for children right next to adults and parents. Know what drowning looks like! It’s important.
- The One Habit at Every Meal That Will Change Your Life —> Good to consider as we are establishing family traditions, expectations and leading littles in the holy walk.
