Some of you have heard my story about how blogging has grown on me. I came into it, um, shall we say…reluctantly. You can read more about that here if you like, but in the meantime, I’m here to say I’m over that now. I enjoy this gig of mine, and the best of the best of it is connecting with you.
I also appreciate the chance it gives me to connect with other bloggers. So here are a few of the blog posts I’ve found over the last month or so that I’ve especially enjoyed. I hope you will too. And if you do pop over, give these bloggers a little love, won’t you? There’s nothing bloggers like better than to hear from their readers.
Giving Your Teenager Grace @ Barefoot: Living a Life Vulnerable to God by Paula. (click on post title to go there) I could have chosen just about any post by Paula from the last half-year or so, but I chose this one, even though it’s longer than usual, because it’s a great example to show how she writes about faith and family with such humility and vulnerability. It might just take your breath away. I also picked it because I have a new-ish teen of my own, and another quickly on his heels, so I take an especial interest, soaking up her wisdom and perspective.
Unbelievably Healthy Chocolate Chip Cookies @ Deliciously Yum! by Kathi. I stumbled onto this midwest blogger’s blog when I went in search of a recipe for Gingerbread Muffins last December. The ones I found on her site were so good, and I so liked her sweet, friendly vibes, that I went back for more. I recently surprised my kiddos with these surprisingly good-for-you cookies for their after-school snack. A hit!
Causebox by sevenly, a.k.a.The Greatest Thing Ever @ Books and Beverages by Jamie. On this (as on so many things) I agree with Jamie 110%. I won’t say much more about it here as Jamie does it so well herself (and I also have a sneaking hunch I’ll be talking it up myself in future posts). You gotta check this out.
And while we’re over in Jamie-land, I also have to mention Little Letters|Edition #6 @ She Laughs with Dignity: a blog about beauty, faith and mischief–Jamie’s other site. These posts about life’s small pleasures never fail to make me smile.

And finally for now, A Sneak Peek at my New Book by Lysa TerKeurst: Leading Women in the Adventure of Faith. I so love the way this woman writes and mentors women in a deeply real and personal way. I have yet to read a book of hers that hasn’t resonated into the far reaches of my soul and shaped me into a better Jesus-loving woman. I just finished her most recent book, The Best Yes, and consider it great news to know that a new book is already underway.
So now your turn: Which blog posts have you loved lately? Do share!
