Starting today, I’ll be compiling a list of my favorite things at the end of each month instead of my usual Sunday Snippet!
Here’s what made me smile in June:
Okay. Our entire trip out West was beautiful– from Oklahoma to Texas to Santa Fe. But there’s just something about Colorado. And I so enjoyed visiting somewhere totally new. Westcliffe (called “Your Grandpa’s Colorado” by locals) was underrated and striking. The town was quaint and welcoming. The hikes were fantastic.
Faithful Women and Their Extraordinary God by Noel Piper
This is a super book by John Piper’s wife that digs into the lives of five women– Sarah Edwards, Lilias Trotter, Gladys Aylward, Esther Ahn Kim, and Helen Roseveare. Their stories are inspiring and challenging me.
Writing is always my passion, but this month, I’ve seen serious productivity in this area. It’s been encouraging. I’m learning to ignore my inner critic while I write, letting the words carve their own path more freely.
She Reads Truth Bible
For high school graduation, my church gifted me with this beautiful (hardcover!) Bible. I’ve grown up using the ESV translation, so this CSB version is refreshing for a change. And the margins are a dream come true.
Vacation Bible School is one of my all-time favorite church outreaches. Last week, I got to lead a group of kiddos (six of them boys:) from station to station as we learned more about God’s Word. This year, my brother led worship music and I played along. It was a blast.
What made you happy in June? I’d love to hear!
