Weekend Links - November 16, 2013

It's been a good week here. Plenty going on but it's mostly good stuff. I think we may have just gone through the calm before the storm of the Holidays, though. Our calendar is packed between today and January.

For this home-loving introvert, that is not exactly a recipe for happiness. Oh well. I guess I'll catch my breath later.

On to the links:

Spiritual / Inner Life
Marriage / Parenting
  • 7 Truths and a Lie About Motherhood by Jessica Smartt at The Better Mom.
  • Don't Tell Me Your Kid's Sins by Megan Hill. OK, I have conflicting thoughts about this one. One the one hand, yes, our children are not our property and their stories don't just belong to us. On the other hand, this parenting thing is part of our story. We would be falling into the ditch on the other side if we never discussed those struggles. Pretending we have it all together is not helpful either. If you've read this article, what are your thoughts?
  • Affirmation in the Thick of Things by Leila at Like Mother, Like Daughter. (I think I could have used the phrase "In the Thick of Things" for the title of this blog!)
Homeschooling / Education
C.S. Lewis - yes, Lewis rates his own category this week. The 22nd is the anniversary of his death and his legacy is on many minds.
Uncategorized (Everything Else)
That's it for this week. What caught your eye?
