Some weeks I notice there is a theme running through many of the writings and other weeks I find there are a range of topics. This week there was variety and some new writers I have never read before.
I hope your weekend will be blessed and restful and allow for some reading.
Have you ever wanted to just get up and walk out of church? And no matter how hard you try you just simply could not get into the message? Then you must read Laura Perkowski’s The Day I Wanted to Walk Out of Church,
I love it when she shared: “There I sat, listening to a man talk about the Bible with others who love God, and I wanted it to be over. Was I a bad Christian? I sure felt like one…Sometimes, I need a reality check…The purpose of the church is not to fill me up every week, satisfying all my spiritual needs.”
Wait. What? Did she just say church wasn’t supposed to satisfy all my spiritual needs? Yes! Read her blog to find out why!
For all you moms, you may enjoy reading Samantha Landrus‘ article #TeamMom: Why I Feel Unqualified. She shares about the struggles of motherhood, and let’s face it, the struggle is real! No matter what stage of motherhood you find yourself in, we can all learn from each other.
And one thing that I have learned is that being a mom can sometimes make me speak before I think. Amen? That’s why I loved reading Heart Issues by Heather Dawkins. “Whether I’m rambling or not thinking before speaking, or saying what I feel without feeling what I say, it’s a heart issue.” Good stuff!
So, maybe you have blown it with your speech and you are feeling kinda undervalued, unimportant, run down and raggedy, then you will enjoy reading More Than Just A Rag by Janet Benson. Janet shares how her and her husband’s differing perception of an ordinary towel showed her the value God sees in her life and in all of us.
Don’t forget to read these wonderful writers, too:

Renee Griffin: Gathered a beautiful tale of women friendships
