It’s the end…of the week. And it’s the end of the month. And, well, summer just came to an end, didn’t it?
Yes, it’s time for another installment of Friday Fuel. It was good to be back to my normal, busy routine. Throughout the week, plenty of things popped up, surprised and fueled my mind.
Here are the highlights.
Emily Freeman sent me what is now officially the nicest package I’ve ever received from an author. If I ever publish another book, I’m going to have to include a ton of stuff to beat her thoughtfulness.
But more importantly, her new book A Million Little Ways drops into stores on October 1, and I’m so excited to dive into this little gem. I highly recommend you check this out if you are interested in living more artfully.
I can’t believe that this Sunday, one of my favorite shows will end. A couple of weeks ago, I held a quiet Breaking Bad vigil and paid tribute with these watercolor sketches of Walt, Hank and Jesse.
In My Blog Reader
The highlights from my blog reader this week all followed a rather serendipitous theme. Doubt, hurt and depression ruled the week, but not to be a big downer. It was a very redemptive selection.
Zack Hunt at The American Jesus shared a two part serious on dealing with doubt. A well worn topic that he, as usual, brings fresh eyes to.
It’s one thing to blog about how much church has hurt you. Elizabeth Esther shared her thoughts on how to actually heal after being hurt by a church. Very needed and appreciated, Elizabeth.
I’ve been a longtime fan of Renee Fisher and the work and writing she does. And I really appreciated this guest post she featured: Clinical Depression, From Curse to Blessing.
Finally, when it comes to just all-out, full-body pain, Christen Price discussed giving that pain up: When It’s Time to Give Our Pain to Jesus.
Of course, I know that when you are in the midst of pain, illness, doubt or hurt that healing doesn’t come easy. But maybe you can start on the path this week.
