Friday Fuel: Fame, Food, and One of My Favorite Rooms

August 9, 2013

How many of you have already sent your kiddos back to school?

It’s hard to believe, but I’ve seen a few shots on Instagram of familiar yellow buses, or kids sitting at their new school desks.

The last couple of weeks, I’ve spent a lot of time in one of my favorite rooms, my art classroom.


Everything from the color of the walls, to the posters, tables, and even 8-Bit Mr. Appling greeting kids at the door is my design.  Needless to say, I’m pretty pleased with it, but as you know, I think creating things with our own hands is one of the most satisfying activities we can engage in.  We’ll be welcoming kids back in less than a week.

This week brought a few more stand out posts in my blog reader.

Fame Obsessed Christians

I always enjoy Mary DeMuth’s gentle spirit when it comes to topics that I secretly struggle with, and she knocks it out of the park with Fame Obsessed Christians.

Hott or Nott

A lot of bloggers have tried to deal with the topic of Christian men objectifying their wives in public with the tired “my smoking hot wife” line.  But I think my pal, KC Proctor has written one of the best little nuggets on this issue, despite the provocative title.  It comes down to this: husbands, you are supposed to believe your wife is the hottest woman in the world.  That means by extension that every other married man is not supposed to find your wife as attractive as you do.

More Than Food

I’m so happy for my friends, Darrell and Ally, who have spent the week in Guatemala with Food for the Hungry.  Check out some of their thoughts on the true meaning of nutrition.

Jesus was Wrong

Forget the discussion of the Bible being inerrant.  Zack Hunt says Jesus was just wrong.

That’s what fueled me this week.  What books, blogs, or other sweet stuff fueled you?

  1. I’m humbled by the mention, thanks.

  2. I love your 8-bit guy!

  3. Thanks man! Really appreciate the shout out. Glad you liked it. How do you honor your wife when complimenting her in public?

    • FWIW, I’m a wife and I prefer it if my husband talks about something cool that I’ve actually DONE, and just not say anything about my looks. (I already know he finds me attractive, I don’t feel like he has to convince others.)

      My take on the whole “hot wife” thing is that it makes a woman sound like a show pony.
