Friday Finds 4.12.19

April 12, 2019

Each Friday I curate a short list of posts, podcasts, and other ponderings that will encourage, bless, and motivate you. Enjoy!

  • Carly writes this honest, authentic post about the reality of being a parent figuring out the puzzle of special needs parenting. If you’ve ever wanted to feel validated because you walk in these shoes, read this. If you’ve ever wondered what it’s like for your friend walking this mile, read this.

 

  • Kristine shows the value in not always being our kids’ constant playmate. I loved reading her insight and perspective, and if you’re a parent wondering how to balance the tension of engaging with your kids but not being their 24/7 entertainment, read her thoughts here.

 

  • Leah’s post touches on mental health, a subject that’s really important to me and one that I want to encourage as many conversations around as possible. My favorite line from her post says “It’s the sacred middle, the pause, where I can be alone with God, alone with some challenges, alone with myself, and not self-destruct.” Go read her reflection on “the sacred middle” — it’s a space we all need to inhabit at different points in our lives.

 

Have an awesome weekend!!

      So welcome!! You were able to articulate some ideas I was thinking but hadn’t been able to fully get our, so your perspective on the benefits of solo play was really helpful and refreshing.
