Friday Favorites: Round 11

Welcome to Round 11 of the 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 God has been ministering to me abundantly through the gift of meditating on His goodness and grace and He has used several blogs to encourage that meditative focus. So thankful for this community of bloggers whose hearts long to know God in a more intimate, personal way.

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

1 – Mary: In the Word and In Prayer: Mary Hess: Love me some morning Mary sunshine! I have read Mary regularly over the last several months as she has shared a new phase of her journey with God, with her career, and her family. Mary has – on more than one occasion – wrapped words around what my heart is feeling but I just cannot figure out. I so appreciate Mary’s authentic journey. This post in particular grabbed me because it is such a passionate reflection of her heart for Christ.


2 – Shelia: You Belong Here: Shelia Walsh: I have been a huge fan of Shelia’s since my first Women of Faith conference ten years ago. Not only is she an amazing speaker, writer, and singer, God has used her words countless times to break down my walls of stubborn pride and fear to risk taking just one step closer to God’s heart. Her passion for Christ is contagious and her walk is an authentic reflection of living intentionally. I have just discovered her blog this last week and I am so excited! This post reminds me that God has designed us for belonging.


3 – Leneita: God Speaks: Inner City Observations: Leneita is a brand-new blogger I have discovered in the last couple of weeks who ministered to me in an incredible way through a simple comment she wrote on a fellow bloggers post. It kind of rocked my world to be honest. Well, she discovered my blog after the comment I left her, then I discovered her blog, and her words and writing have continued to minister to me. She and her husband work in inner city ministry and her writing is a reflection of their journey together.

So who else do I read?
