What a week, no? Let’s get right to it.
• What I told my children about Charleston :: HuffPo
• A new hymn for Charleston :: The New Yorker
• What overparenting looks like from a Stanford dean’s perspective :: Mind/Shift
• Why I’m purposely selfish on Instagram :: Nesting Place
• Is the world getting worse? :: Shaun Groves (an oldie but a goodie)
• A few weeks ago, I was on the Sirius XM radio with my friend Jen Fulwiler—if you missed it, here’s a segment of our conversation.
• And I was honored that earlier this week, the Washington Post asked me to write about the life and legacy of Elizabeth Elliot, who recently passed at 88.
Life has been emotionally-charged lately, both good and not good, both with news events and in our own family’s life. I’ll share more soon, but in the meantime, I hope you find a bit of solace, solidarity, comfort, and hope in your weekend. I know I have already. The God I know is good. People are, too. See you here soon, friends.
“For to be free is not merely to cast off one’s chains, but to live in a way that respects and enhances the freedom of others.” —Nelson Mandela
