Sunday Best 5.15.16

This week’s meditation.

 

Remember this old thing? My last Sunday Best was all the way back in June 2014. And it wasn’t even a Sunday Best, hah.

I’ve been scaling back my social media intake, for reasons I’m sure will turn into a blog post, so I’m taking to the blog for my major life updates- kind of like the olden days. So come back here regularly if you’re looking for what is going on with me lately.

And now for some articles and favorites of the week…

Choose life instead of staying on brand.

The surprising benefits of a broken heart.

This is how to run and inspire a company. Might need to start eating yogurt!

This is my favorite article from my last Sunday Best, but it’s so good it’s worth sharing again. And this time it takes on a whole new meaning.

The most amazing new kids book. Girl Power!

The incredible brain science of gratitude.

Go, Hamilton, go!

Prayer Requests

For my interview for Western Seminary’s Counseling Program Tuesday morning, for energy to start fundraising and writing letters and blog posts for my Zimbabwe trip, and all things grief and sadness and healing for me. It’s been a very difficult few weeks. I hit the anger stage of grief for the first time and that was a new experience. It’s still so hard and the future is so uncertain.

 

Thanks for reading, friends. How have you been?
