Reading other blogs and posts is one of my favorite things about social media. I love seeing other points of view and learning more about topics from other bloggers. I am excited to use this weekly feature, Links from the Week, as a place to share those great blogs and posts I think you might be interested in as well!
Without further ado – Week 1 of 2018
:: Links from the Week ::
Childhood and Creation – Mothering Spirit
Life just looks so much more beautiful from a child’s point of view. I loved how Laura, at Mothering Spirit, put those little day-to-day things that kids get so much pleasure out of into a perspective of the beauty from God. The world to a child is wonder and we need to embrace this outlook more often for ourselves.
Prayer Pledge – ACTS – Blessed Is She
Blessed is She is doing a beautiful prayer pledge over the next few weeks. They are breaking down each form of prayer using “ACTS” (Adoration, Contrition, Thanksgiving, Supplication). I am loving the explanations and prayers for each blog. There is a great printable to correspond with each week as well, making it a great reference later. If you are looking to delve deeper into your faith this year, this a great way to start.

They need to learn how to work through things themselves, even though this is difficult to watch happen.
Wynton’s Twelve Ways to Practice – Arban Method
I loved these simple yet very useful ways to practice. I actually printed them to put at my kids desk for reference.
