2 places we visited
Believe it or not, Brian and I spent several days in Southern California this past week for an Anglican conference, and I didn't take one single photo to share! Here's a few other places we enjoyed...

4 links I loved
Summer Reading Guide 2017. I'm trying to catch up on all the un-read books on my shelves instead of following a themed reading list this year, but I can't ignore these great suggestions for summer reads. | via Modern Mrs. Darcy
Bring Back the Sabbath. Maybe if the NY Times tells us to do it, church people will pay attention? | via The New York Times Magazine
Parents: Prepare Your Children For Missions, Even When It's Risky. This was a great reminder: "I will have to balance my desire to keep them safe and to let them risk all for the sake of Christ and his gospel." | via IMB

p.s. This post contains affiliate links because I'm trying to be a good steward, and when you buy something through one of these links you don't pay more money, but in some magical twist of capitalism we get a little pocket change. Thanks!
