- By far my favorite thing this week was Ed Cyzewski's new e-book, Divided We Unite. Okay, so I know that's not something that you can just click and read here, but you need to read this. You can download it to your e-reader or just read it on your computer. He's offering it for free, for the cost of your email (if you're a writer, you absolutely should sign up for his email list), or you can support a writer by purchasing it for a dollar. If you have any interest in Christian unity, I cannot recommend this highly enough.
- Dan Brennan, author of Sacred Unions, Sacred Passions, wrote a great piece about hierarchy in marriage and how that can affect friendship in that relationship. I love his thoughts about friendship in general, and I thought he made some really salient points in this article.
- Sonny Lemmons, a new friend, wrote a simply beautiful post about labels that he had to live with growing up and how he had to learn to love himself despite those labels.
- David Nilsen's sister Shan wrote a powerful piece about learning to give up control. Her honesty is challenging and beautiful, as always.
- I love that Rachel Held Evans is back to blogging. Her post about Esther and Vashti this week was fantastic.
- Sarah Bost-Askins wrote a wonderful post about trying to figure out how to allow her daughter to appreciate girly things without locking herself into girly things. A great read for feminist moms of daughters.
- These football cakes at Cake Wrecks are phenomenal. Or something.
- David Crowder Band released their final album, Give Us Rest, this week. So good. If you haven't picked it up yet, make sure you fix that right away. I'll miss them making music, but they've wrapped up their career brilliantly.
