Friday Favorites: Round 8

Welcome to Round 8 of Friday Favorites!

As y’all know, each Friday I choose three of my favorite OPB’s (Other People’s blogs) from the week and share them. This week I’ve chosen three women’s blogs, two of whom I’ve read for awhile, and one I’m new to, but all who make me think.

Hope you enjoy this week’s edition of the Friday Follow!

1 – Women and Pride: Sarah Markley: Sarah has done an amazing series on Women and Pride this week. I love Sarah’s writing, she always draws me in through crafty metaphors and creative tales. Sarah’s writing has this quiet strength that pulls you into its embrace and does not let go and her transparency about life’s ups and downs makes traveling along side of her a true blessing.

2 – If you’re feeling Lost: Lisa-Jo: Lisa-Jo is also the ninja of the metaphors and this one really touched me this week. You’ve seen Lisa-Jo before, she was one of my guest bloggers when I was in Africa. Her words are like music to the ears and many times Lisa-Jo’s writing has wrapped around my heart like a warm, comfy blanket on a cold winter afternoon. Lisa-Jo has also just recently started a new endeavor entitled “M.O.B. Society” (that would be “Mothers of Boys”) As great as her writing is, she is even more delightful in person!

3 – My, Aren’t we Nosey: Melissa Brotherton: This was awesome, and convicting, and took a story I’ve read a thousand times and flipped it on its end to give me a new perspective. She challenges us to get beyond the ugly habit of comparison of giftings, callings, and ministries and back to the basics of keeping our eyes on Christ. Melissa is funny, engaging, charming and a thoroughly enjoyable read!

So who else do I read?
