“I remember spending time in Peru, where the pace is slow, even uncomfortably slow. I daily watched farmers walk into their fields from their tiny huts and asked our hiking guide what the values of the culture were.

My guide told me the values of the culture were faith and family. And if those are your values, you definitely don’t need a lot of money or a lot of Twitter followers. You just need to stay close to the earth to learn how God does things, and close to your family to nurture your heart.”

These links are gathered here to help point you a little closer to hush. Each weekend of 31 Days to Hush, I will try to find links from other writers learning how to listen and to see. If you read something during the week that you think would fit, feel free to send me an email with “hush links” in the subject line and I’ll consider adding it to next weekends links. And if you wrote a hush post? Even better. I’ll choose the ones that fit the best.

This is the seventh post in the series. Click here to see a list of all the posts, updated daily. If you would like to receive these quiet thoughts in your email inbox, subscribe now.
