Weekend links

If you didn’t yet see, I had a post on (in)courage yesterday about 11 songs that changed the Church, complete with a bit of history and a playlist. So, listen and enjoy!

And speaking of listening—I’ve got a new podcast episode! Myquillyn and I chat it up about her new house. Have you seen it? Be still my heart.

Fave Instagram of the week (head here to follow me):

It’s a good thing I’m an ethical person, otherwise I’d totally steal this VW van that parked next to us.

And finally, a shout out to recent sponsors:

  • Living Well Spending Less: A blog about living the good life on a budget. Good stuff.
  • Mama Seeds :: Fitness, inspiration, and support for the modern mama (pregnancy fitness videos).

  1. Trust me, Tsh, that beautiful VW would break break the bank.
    But just between you and me, I would love to have it, too.

  2. I found the water billboard so inspiring

  3. Wow that four sisters post is amazing isn’t it? Such a wonderful record, and yet seen all at once, also such a poignant reminder of the passing of time.
