I had a post typed out and planned for today, but then I decided I needed to marinate on it a bit. It’s deep and thought-provoking and I want to weigh my words carefully. So instead of all that heavy, I’m sharing with you a few links I love–my favorites from around the web.
- 7 Truths About Marriage You Will Not Hear in Church. I especially love number 2: “There is more than one person out there for you. Soul mates are made, not born.”
- This is not a flower year by Jess Connolly. I have never made this comparison before, but it’s a good one. Some years are spent growing deep roots and standing firm like an old oak tree.
- Just Mercy. Our prison system and the treatment of criminals are big topics right now. (Have you heard about the Netflix documentary, Making a Murderer? I haven’t watched it yet, but we will soon.) This book explores the criminal justice system, specifically in my home state. It’s eye opening and I really have no other words for it besides, you owe it to yourself to read it.
- Speaking of prison and courtrooms and the like, go read Courthouse Compassion by Lori Harris.
