Books

A simple and profound reminder — Erin
One thing God has spoken, two things have I heard; that You, O God, are strong, and that you, O Lord, are loving. – Psalm 62:11-12

The book When Wallflowers Dance, by Angela Thomas, truly changed my life. It’s one of those books you put down praising God for. — Whitney

“When we were two, we were no longer babies-we were becoming little girls. And when we were thirteen, we were leaving childhood behind, becoming young women. But somewhere along the way, we stopped becoming. We became “un-women.” Wallflowers who are just breathing and smiling and blending in to stay out-of-the-way. That is not what God had in mind when He created us. He wants us to keep becoming. He wants us to become strong, decisive, wise, creative, passionate, courageous-all the things we’ve dreamed of becoming.”

Blogs

We share and talk a lot about the blog Good Women Project. If you haven’t checked out their latest stuff, you should, and take a look at our ad that’s featured as well! — Whitney

This simple post from Hannah Brencher (Remember when we became the Honey Boo Boo Children of Time Management?) packed a punch and inspired the pants off of me (metaphorically, of course) — Erin

Podcasts & People

This quote from Oswald Chambers was exactly what I needed these past few weeks. We’ll be posting some of what I’ve learned about this in a blog mini series next week. — Erin

When the devil elevates you to a certain place, he causes you to fasten your idea of what holiness is far beyond what flesh and blood could ever bear or achieve. Your life becomes a spiritual acrobatic performance high atop a steeple. You cling to it, trying to maintain your balance and daring not to move. But when God elevates you by His grace into heavenly places, you find a vast plateau where you can move about with ease. – Oswald Chambers, My Utmost for His Highest

This podcast by John Piper slapped me in the face with the reality that I am more wicked than I care to admit: The righteous are bold as a lion. Whitney

“The wicked run away when no one is chasing them,
but the godly are as bold as lions.” – Proverbs 28:1

Videos

This video of How animals eat their food provides a good laugh over something completely stupid. And we kind of like that sort of thing. — Erin

I almost cry every time I watch this sweet video of a baby hearing for the first time. It reminds me that God uses us for His miracles, even if we don’t credit it that way. — Whitney

Beauty & Buys

We share a lot of giveaways from The Vintage Pearl. If you haven’t checked them out yet you should, they have amazing and unique pieces for everything! — Whitney

I am also IN LOVE with anything from Curly Girl Design. Absolutely the most adorable hand-stamped and -crafted designs turned into anything and everything gift/decor. — Whitney
