In case you didn’t know already, we want Rediscovered to be a resource that refers you to all things awesome. With that in mind, we’ve created Finds of the Month, a little post where we share videos, blogs, quotes and resources that have been valuable to us. Some are serious and profound, some are funny and some just make your life a little better.
These are some of the amazing things that have made us laugh, cry, think and love life this month. Enjoy!

Matt Chandler podcast – Nehemiah: Rebuilding with Truth
Love this quote from Donald Miller. –Erin
“Speak the Truth: This means losing the battle over owning the moment. The moment is rarely owned by truth.”
This quote from Dietrich Bonhoeffer’s Life Together really made me change the way I think. –Erin
“Why is it that it is often easier for us to confess our sins to God than to a brother? God is holy and sinless, He is a just judge of evil and the enemy of all disobedience. But a brother is sinful as we are. He knows from his own experience the dark night of secret sin. Why should we not find it easier to go to a brother than to the holy God? But if we do, we must ask ourselves whether we have not often been deceiving ourselves with our confession of sin to God, whether we have not rather been confessing our sins to ourselves and also granting ourselves absolution…Who can give us the certainty that, in the confession and the forgiveness of our sins, we are not dealing with ourselves but with the living God? God gives us this certainty through our brother. Our brother breaks the circle of self-deception. A man who confesses his sins in the presence of a brother knows that he is no longer alone with himself; he experiences the presence of God in the reality of the other person.”

This Encourage.meant Calendar helps me focus on serving and uplifting others when I feel too bogged down in my own mess of stuff. I don’t stick to it like glue, but it helps me have something to go by if there is a selfish day I’m stuck in.
