Holley Gerth did an amazing post on (in)courage called Cyber Sabbath. Let me recommend you read it and let me recommend you live it. [I’m starting to take the Sabbath seriously. I think we all should.]

This post on Rabbit Room about authors having small houses in which they write makes me jealous and excited and makes me love my profession because we are a weird and beautiful lot. [And yes I want one.]

Emily Freeman has been doing a series on art and I’ve been devouring it. Today’s post, One Secret to Honest Art, is so good it makes me a little sick [in the good way].

Today is the first birthday of my friend Jenny’s blog- Dinner A Love Story. I read it every day.

Seth Godin released a free e-book today called SXSW Pokes. Download it and read it. [I mean, I’m not the boss of you, I’m just saying I think you’ll enjoy the stories.]

Jon Acuff, of Stuff Christians Like fame, has started a new blog and I love it.

Offline, I’m currently reading the Bible and my March Real Simple magazine.

What are you reading?

    I’m trying to tackle “Anna Karenina” finally and “1000 Gifts”. I just finished C. S. Lewis’ “Till We Have Faces” and HIGHLY recommend it. Thanks for your suggestions-can’t wait to try them too!

    I have been loving Emily’s art series too! Mary at Giving Up on Perfect is doing a Remarkable Faith link-up series that has been really interesting. Each week we take on a different topic that has shaped our faith.

    As far as books, I’m just about done with Save the Date (Jenny B. Jones), which I absolutely love. And then Blood Done Sign My Name (Timothy Tyson) which is a better education than my childhood history classes concerning the Civil Rights movement in the South and the state of race relations. Absolutely eye-opening, thought-provoking, and discussion-worthy.

    I’m reading Anna Karenina in bits and pieces. It’s on my Kindle, along with From Head to Foot by one Annie F. Downs. I’m also reading Made To Crave by Lysa Terkeurst, Don’t Make Me Come Up There! by Kristen Welch, Seedlings in Stone by L.L. Barkat, and Life Interrupted by Priscilla Shirer.

    I started reading your book for the second time(taking it slower this time and see what God does through it), and I have read the first few chapters of crazy love.
    It’s so funny you mentioned Jon Acuff’s blogs because I keep up with both of his websites regularly. He and I are old friends from a long time ago. We grew up in the same town in Massachusetts together. I think I may have told you that. Anyway, it’s just funny to hear one person I know from one part of my life mention someone from another part. He actually has another book coming out in a couple of months(his third),and I still havent’ read his second one.

    I jumped over here from in courage. I am reading Phil., Ruth, 11 Timothy, and Ephesians.

    I just finished One Thousand Gifts I am currently reading Lies Young Women Believe as I lead and mentor 3 Junior High gals. I am also reading The Praying Life by Paul Miller. I noticed that your book will be coming soon for the In Courage book club. How might I get a copy?
