Weekend links

I wrote elsewhere this week, too… On Storyline I talked about small being the new big, at my friend Ann Voskamp’s place I talked about how those of us who are Christians can’t really be the Body unless we slow down, and on my personal blog I shared some insights from the recent AoS reader survey here—I even surprised myself.

West Coast #notesfromabluebike reader meetups!

And west coast friends—let’s hang out this month! I’ll be in Seattle next Saturday, followed by San Francisco, the Los Angeles area, San Diego, and Portland. Head here for details… would love to meet you!

  1. Always such an honor to be mentioned here. Thanks, friend!

    And, by the way, that post on NOT giving them what they want? One of my favorites 🙂

    Have a fantastic weekend!

  2. Great links, as always! I couldn’t believe the pact about parents not letting their kids see them on a computer. A lot of people do their work on a computer. Well, now I know that exists!

  3. Love your links as always – but that Time link… just incredible!!! Hope you have a fun weekend!!!

    Hey Tsh,
    I ran over and read what you posted on your personal blog about the AoS reader survey and I want to second you on finding freedom and being yourself! I took the survey and I guess after all is said and the boxes are checked, I like reading YOUR writing. YOUR voice is the one who keeps me checking in and coming back. (Don’t get me wrong, I like reading the other contributors too!) But no matter what you are talking about (chocolate, parenting, or down time), you communicate in a way that connects with me. I am sure many others feel the same way. So, just keep writing and I will keep reading!

  5. Hi Tsh,

    I’ve recently found your words and I’m so grateful already. And I hope you do visit San Francisco again, because this time around I’m afraid I’ll be out of town! I was so bummed about that. Safe travels and God’s blessings.
