I’m super excited to be over at She Sparkles today with my friend Cindy Bultema. We’re talking about body image. Please come join the conversation!
From some friends:
Cheated, by Erica Stidham – great thoughts on how comparing ourselves to others hurts us
What if this Defined a Woman Instead, by Culture Rebel – great thoughts on womanhood and teaching our daughters a different way than what the media says.
Creating the Best Summer Ever, by Cindy Bultema – practical tips for planning your summer, involving the kids and helping to avoid squabbles!
It’s Time to Stand Up, by Cindy Johnston – on being a light, even when it’s hard, as in when your kid is getting bullied on the bus hard.
From the Farmer’s Market:
a birthday bouquet that smells so sweet!
A table full of red, ready to eat!
From my garden:
A handful a strawberries, with many more to come!
From the Front Yard:
From my bookshelf:
Confession, I totally devoured Veronica Roth’s Divergent and Insurgent. I may also have started to stalk her on the internet. She also happens to be a Christian, and while the books are not “Christian” novels, she weaves a minor spiritual thread through the story.
I’ve started Anne Lamott’s Bird by Bird on several occasions. I finally broke down and bought it. She makes me laugh.
What have you found this week that was helpful or enjoyable?
My white and pink peonies, the wren that happily sings outside my window, also reading Divergent and very soon, Insurgent, appreciating David’s teacher, and learning more than I thought possible about love and life from an amazing first grade class…all bc i carved out time to volunteer.
Sigh…all so wonderful Cindy! Thanks for sharing!
Divergent and Insurgent, A.L.T. sandwich (avacado lettuce and tomato-yum) Amazing yoga stretches. I also finished my last small group with 1st-4th grade girls. Thankful for the summer break, but i also realized how much i love those girls. Even the difficult ones….
