I have a LOT of blogs in my Google Reader. And a lot I end up leaving unread in my reader because I like to go back and read them over and over again. So I’m going to start sharing links to these that I love. This probably won’t be weekly but on occasion when I have a lot saved I’ll do a post with them.
Jen Wilkin’s Gladness Immeasurable – One of the most important things that I read as a mother of a daughter and a mother of a son was, “If you considered my daughters as valuable as if they were your own, you would raise different sons.” I want to strive to raise James to be the right kind of man and Charlotte to be the right kind of woman.
JMom’s In Progress – My favorite paragraph was, “But isn’t sanctification, by definition, the extension of this process [training children] into our adult lives? At what age do we suddenly expect perfection? I have no desire to glorify sin or to ‘accept’ that I am just wired to be a sarcastic, selfish, impatient know-it-all. Jesus died and rose again to free me from the prison of those things. But I do want to live a life of authenticity that gives God the glory for the parts of me that reflect Him and recognizes that there’s still a chunk that is in need of chiseling.” This really speaks to the perfectionist in my personality!
