Lovely Links

Lovely Links – May 15, 2014

So, its been a while since I shared a handful of links that I feel are incredibly readable or watchable, mostly because its been a pretty crazy few months. However, I’ve found a considerable amount of things I wanted to share with all of you lately, so I thought it was time to curate another collection.

Here goes…

  1. Was It Truly Finished? @ Chris Martin Writes
    I’ve been following this blog for a  while now this particular post jumped out from my reader this week. My favorite moment in this whole post is a simple reminder that we all know, and yet often seem to forget.”The value of something is determined by the price paid.”
  2. 23 GIF’s That Will Teach You A Damn Thing For Once In Your Life @ Buzzfeed
    I clicked on this in a moment of boredom, and honestly didn’t have much hope for it. Turns out, I actually might have learned something…or at least became curious about a few things I’d never thought of. Enjoy!
  3. 5 Signs You May Have a Wrong View of God @
    How do you view God? Angry, vengeful, ready to smack you down for the smallest transgression? Perhaps you need to take another look…
  4. Listening to Shame – Brene Brown @ Ted
    This is absolutely incredible; she goes into the importance of vulnerability. So perfectly timed in my life, as it came up on my facebook feed just a day or so ago, and just an amazing reminder of what it is to be real. To be human.
  5. Danimal’s Army @ YouTubeCheck
    This video is equal parts completely wonderful and completely adorable. The story of Danny Keefe, six years old with a speech impediment and a wicked sense of style. Bullied for both of those reasons, 40 of his friends from football and school decided to do something incredible (and adorable) to stand up for him. There are some incredible young people in our world! Check out Danimal’s Army website as well. 🙂

  1. i remember watching Brene Brown’s Ted talk ‘The Power of Vulnerability’ last year we watched it in one of my pastoral classes at school. i remember how powerful and influential it was to me seeing it back then, so to see this ‘Listening to Shame’ as sort of a follow-up from that was really cool

    • I haven’t watched The Power of Vulnerability, although it sounds like it might be rather fitting with the current theme in my life. its definitely on my to-watch list. I really enjoyed this one, although I’m feeling like I need to go back and watch it one more time to really let it sink in.
      One of my friends made a comment on facebook that she watches both of these every few months just as a reminder.
