I'm still giddy over Monday's post. Female friendships are so challenging and beyond rewarding... I was telling my younger sister this week that it took me a long time to figure out how to be a "girl friend" and I still feel like I'm learning a lot. For an introvert, it's so easy for me to hang back and not pursue good friendship. I'm in awe of the way God has kept planting women in front of me – crazily pouring them into my life this summer! – showing me that I do, in fact, have a supportive community around me. I feel like each week I am facing a new fear, and God has been using these women to remind me to be brave. Love all of you ladies that I've spent time with so far this year, new friendships and old, and want to thank you from the bottom of my heart. We are designed for community. Praise!
+ here are some links for your weekend:
- Matt's been really digging deep into what it means to be a man or a woman in today's culture... really loved his sermon on manhood last Sunday. Ladies out there, give this one a listen.
- My fav lettering lady, Lindsay Letters, added a bunch of new items to her shop for fall! Completely in love with her newest "be true" shirt.
- Made me laugh.
- Grabbing the ingredients to make this... so many of our favorite things in one dish.
- I met Natalie through The Influence Network, and learned that she has an incredible pottery shop!! If you're looking for a gift for someone you love (or maybe for yourself!) I'd highly recommend putting something from NS in your cart!
