Oh friends, Speak Love launch week continues with lots of media spread around the internet. So I wanted to share it with you in one giant list.

Ready. Set. Go.

I wrote an article for Bible Gateway this week. It was a simple assignment- write five articles about Speak Love, this first one being kind of an introduction. Well, my bestie Betsy was in town this weekend, so we went to the coffee shop and well, we sat beside a mean girl. So I wrote about her.

Carlos Whittaker has started a new podcast called the Pew Party Podcast. The first two episodes are really stellar, but the third one, well, I’m on it. 🙂 We talk about online dating and raising daughters and why people retweet our pastor Pete Wilson. So set aside forty-ish minutes and hear me laugh too loud in your ears.

Bryan Allian and I filmed an eight minute video for CrowdScribed where I answer literally 6.5 questions. Here’s the link, but also, you’ll see the video below. Best. Screenshot. Ever.

The first reviews for Speak Love are coming in! Once you finish reading the book, would you consider writing a review on your favorite online book retail website…. like… Amazon?

I’m loving the comments on yesterday’s (in)courage post! I love hearing women talk about the power of words.

In an exciting turn of events, a lot of people have created art, totally independent from my book, using the words Speak Love. So I build a Speak Love Art pinterest board. There is also a Speak Love Revolution board where I pin text art that I think is really beautiful and encouraging.

Have you signed up for my email list yet? I have a fun email headed out tomorrow and I want to make sure you guys get it! [UPDATE: Zondervan just called and the fun email can’t go out until next week. Whah whah. But you’ll still get first dibs. So. No email update Friday. Next week. Carry on.]

Tomorrow, I’m answering one of my favorite questions about Speak Love: Why did Christian pop star Jamie-Grace write the foreword? 

Do you have any questions about Speak Love? I’m happy to answer them!
