Weekend Web Wandering – 2019 Vol. 4

Lots of diverse links saved on my laptop, my phone, and my Kindle Fire in the past few weeks. Let’s see if I can round them all up in one spot!
weekend web wandering

  • Eat Food. All the Time. Mostly Junk. by Laura Shapiro at The Atlantic. How we turned into a nation of snackers.
  • The Theological Legacy of Rachel Held Evans by Anne Carlson Kennedy at CRI. I avoided a lot of these articles written so shortly after Evans’s untimely death. I disagreed with Evans on nearly everything, but the loss of a woman my own age, a mother of young children, is tragic and I can’t blame her friends and family for vigorously defending her and her legacy from perceived attacks. This article seemed more gracious than many others.
  • The Power of Positive Peer Pressure by Kristen at The Frugal Girl. This is why I still listen to Dave Ramsey and tend to hang out with people in similar circumstances (larger than average families, homeschooling, living on one income, etc.).
  • I’ve heard an anecdote about two different shoe salesmen in Africa in sermons, radio programs, and so on but this little article gives a bit more background information (apparently it really happened?!): Bata – a Lesson from a Story.
  • Oh, the Places We’ll Stay by Ashley Hales at CT. This one hit home (no pun intended).
  • I shared this on the Living Unabridged Facebook page but I’ll share it again because I might need to read it again: You Have a Future from Revive our Hearts.
  • DC Talk is Getting Back Together for a Tour. And all the 90s youth group kids rejoice (and buy earplugs because nostalgia is strong but concerts are just so loud, don’t you know).
  • Yours Also the Night by Julie Spencer at The Rabbit Room.
  • And, because my husband and I just observed our 20th anniversary: The Case for Getting Married Young by Karen Swallow Prior at The Atlantic (written in 2013). I was 18, he was 22. It sounds ridiculous now. But it was the best decision, humanly speaking, we’ve ever made. I don’t think it’s something everyone can or should do, but sometimes God gives some of us a head start on “the rest of our life.”
