What’s Inspiring You This Week?
This week, I’m inspired by good writing, good recipes and spring décor!
Highlights From Week 11
Shanda Oakley at A Pause On The Path
Article: The Power Of Touch
Shanda Oakley is a powerful storyteller
Who has spent most of her life in Third Culture Countries.
In The Power Of Touch, she shares a miraculous incident
That occurred during her high school years in war-ridden Zambia.
Does Jesus really answer prayer?
Does He truly touch people’s lives today?
If you’ve ever asked yourself these questions,
Be sure to read Shanda’s story!
In the real world, I usually eat dinner before dessert.
When I’m blogging, however, tasty treats frequently capture my eye!
I knew as soon as I spotted Sistah’s Famous Cookies
That we had a winning recipe on our hand.
Now, these look like Chocolate Chip Cookies
But you’ll have to visit Lori’s blog to find out the secret ingredient!
Thanks, Lori, for sharing this fabulous recipe with us!
Earlier this year, I discovered a fabulous meme called Five Minute Friday
Which is hosted by The Gypsy Mama.
Each week, she post a theme and encourages you to
Write for five minutes straight –
This week Renee at Renee’s Joy Journey took the challenge
And tackled the topic Brave.
How apropos is that?
There were several thoughts that spoke to me as I read Renee’s post.
“It’s harder to trust than it is to pursue.”
Which line most speaks to you?
