day 5 :: life-giving links
Happy weekend, friends!
Today I thought I would share some life-giving blogs and books that I've been reading lately. Happy reading!
www.cassidyrobinson.com - she is blogging on 31 days of being content. I love this girl anyway, but these posts are a breath of fresh air. Finding freedom in choosing contentment over discontentment. It is indeed a choice.
Desperate: hope for the mom who needs to breathe - the title says it all. I've found so much encouragement from Sarah Mae and Sally Clarkson through this book. Being in the trenches with two toddlers is sometimes crazy and this book has encouraged me that I am not losing my mind (or at least I'm not the only one who is) and that a slight shift in my perspective can make all of the difference.
What Women Fear - this book by Angie Smith hit home for me. I listened to it this summer as an audiobook while painting our house, getting ready to sell. I was "amen"ing the whole way through. I didn't realize how many things I lived in fear of until reading this. This book was great in helping me identify areas I could pray through to break through binding strongholds.
http://jonathanmerritt.religionnews.com/2013/10/02/tullian-tchividjian/#sthash.3aI5Gpfl.gbpl - this blog post by Tullian Tchivdjian, Billy Graham's grandson, is a breath of fresh air. This post quite accurately expresses what I have been experiencing all summer. Needing to lean heavily into grace after living in a do-good, try-hard way for too long.
