Have a great weekend, friends.

What I've been up to lately...

 

1 podcast I enjoyed

On Being with Krista Tippett: Glenn Beck. Woah. She's not messing around with this whole Civil Conversations Project


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...

 A good man from our church gave us the work VIP tickets he couldn't use. The Yanks lost, but we loved our time anyway!

 For Mother's Day, I asked my family to kit me out for a summer full of beach days. Here's my first time out with the new beach chair and umbrella.

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

Fifty Things About My Mother. What a sweet, sweet post. Someday I may try my hand at a list like this. For now, I have this poem I wrote for my mom a few years ago. | via Slate

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!
