"Why Women Make Blankets...and Prayer of the Hands":
I usually have work in my hands when I'm listening to speakers. I suspect that at least a few co-attendees think this is inappropriate. Busying one's hands can free up the mind to listen, though, and to pray. The repetitive rhythm of handwork has always been a conduit of prayer and of connection for me. You see, rosaries and prayer ropes are wonderful, but crochet works too! I always listen more attentively, and pray more deeply, when my hands are not calling me for something to do."What 2,000 Calories Looks Like": a photo essay that was interesting not just for the restaurant food they show at the beginning but (what I really liked) the home-cooked meals at the end.
"The Legacy Journey": insightful review by Tim Challies of Dave Ramsey's latest book.
"How to Write Believable Children": Useful stuff for my fellow authors.
Peace of Christ to you,
