Welcome!Thanks for stopping by my little spot on the Internet. I'm a happily married mama to 4 who is walking by faith. I love to read, run, and wander. Join me here for a few slices of life.
Talking About It
Category Archives: feed reads
Forget “Feed Reads,” I should just call it closing tabs that I have open in my browser.
Couch Potato to 5K. This is really cool: a program to help you go from couch to 5K in 9 weeks. Or in my case, from having a baby to running a 5K. I am taking a semi-hiatus until February, and then jumping in!
Taking Back Childbirth. As someone who recently gave birth at home, this article caught my eye. A fairly good article on why there is a segment returning to natural childbirth in the U.S.
The Pond. My husband sent me a link to this video posted on the The Gospel Coalition blog. Basically a good illustration that sin is gross, but people keep wanting to go back.
Not So Smart. The eight-grade final exam from 1895. Guess only having an eight-grade education wasn’t so bad after all. Not sure I’d pass; at least, not without a calculator.
The Amish Exception. The Amish will be exempt from fines for not having insurance under the new health care.
Zero Tolerance. Chris Anderson speaks on the importance of guarding the pulpit.
Trust in God. The words of Trust in God, My Soul, which have been running through my head lately.
Feed Reads are one way I plan on cataloging notable online reads I find. Doesn’t mean I necessarily agree with everything I read or the authors..
Student Global Impact Conference MP3s Daniel and I were kind of sad to miss the 10th anniversary SGI conference this year, especially when his youngest brother returned and we saw his stack of books and conference notebook. Our pastor also spoke at the conference. So we were glad to learn that the audio is available on the Missions Mandate site.
Eclectic Culture Farm Living Off-Grid Daily Journal This family lives off the grid (no electricity) and works hard! This week they’ve been journaling their daily experience. They also started a new Master of the Land course where you can go and work on the farm and learn how they live off the grid. (Entrepreneurial genius–killing 2 birds with one stone.) I’d love to do that one day! If you’re wondering how they blog, they use batteries. Yeah, spelling and grammar are off here and there, but mine would be too if I lived off the grid.
Envelope System Tutorial Tutorial for some super cute budget envelopes if you use the Dave Ramsey envelope system. I think this would also work great to use with coupons for people (like me) who don’t like to take in the giant coupon binder and would rather have coupons in a smaller notebook or wallet.
Coupon for Free Fruit and Nuts with purchase at Earth Fare. Good deal if you live where I do.
To Wake Wanting Jesus Ann Voskamp shares lessons learned from her daughter’s desire to see baby Jesus. Make sure to follow her link about Laura’s epiphany journey. Sometimes evangelicals throw out the baby with the bathwater (the baby being the liturgical calendar), and miss out on many of the symbols and lessons that truly to point our minds to Christ.
Goals for the New Year Carrie also has a great post compiling helps for the new year.
Not to Late to Read Through Your Bible This Year. Desiring God offers several Bible reading plans to help you read through the Bible this year. In the past, I’ve used the M’Cheyne schedule, but this year I am attempting to read the Bible in 90 days, and Daniel is reading through the Bible chronologically this year.
