Spiritual / Inner Life
- Booked: Reading My Way Back to Faith by Jessica Griffith.
- Why Passive-Aggressive Christian Leadership Must Go Away by Marty Duren. (But really, passive-aggressiveness needs to go away in general, not just among Christian leaders.)

- What Do We Do With All This Knowledge? by Melissa Affolter.
- The End of the Matter by Cindy at Ordo Amoris. Heartfelt post.
- What Happens When You Deprive Children of Scary Stories. Justin Taylor put together this inspiring set of quotations.

- Mt. Hope Academy New Resources and Curricula 2013-14. I love Heidi's lists. This one is truly inspirational. I just wish we were on the same year in our History cycle instead of one off. (My kids and I just finished up our Middle Ages studies.)
- Rustberg Seasoned Couples Photographer - Ruby and Harold, 60 Years of Marriage. I've seen a lot of photo shoots on Facebook and Pinterest. This may be my all time favorite. Inspiring!
- How Junk Food Can End Obesity by David Freedman. Long post but interesting.
- Northern Colorado Wants to Secede from Colorado. I've heard rumors like this about California for years but this is the first time I've heard about North Colorado's discontent.

Anyone else having trouble getting used to the "new" Pinterest? (OK, I'll admit what you already know: I have issues with change.)
