For years I’ve been writing a weekend blessing, benediction, or prayer on Saturdays and then sharing a few of my favorite links from the previous week. But the last few Saturdays I’ve been traveling so haven’t been able to share favorite links. Instead, I’ve been putting a prayer up on Mondays and it seems more of you see it there.

Lately I’ve been wondering if it might serve you better to split these weekend posts up – links on Saturday and the prayers on Monday. I don’t know about you, but sometimes I need a Monday reminder the most. So today – links only. And then Monday I’ll write a prayer just for us. Sound good?

Enjoy your weekend, friends. Here are a few good reads for along the way:

Practicing Stillness And Silence by Katie Fox for The Art of Simple // Because stillness does indeed take practice, and every reminder I get is good.

Life as an Introverted Former Child Star by Quinn Cummings // I laughed out loud a couple of times, mainly at her introverted ways. Though I can’t relate to being a child star, I can relate to the small-talk panic she experiences.

Why Smallness Matters by Melissa Camara Wilkins // Is it any wonder I’m sharing this one? We need to remember this over and over again – our smallness is a gift.

Coming Clean by Seth Haines // I come from a line of alcoholics so this book documenting Seth’s first 90 days of sobriety is a riveting read. And the truth is “we’re all drunk on something” even if it doesn’t come from a bottle. I’m so thankful Seth wrote this book.

(Also his wife and my dear friend Amber wrote one of my favorite reads this year, Wild in the Hollow. So much talent in one house!)
