Best Friend Friday #1

Posted on November 14, 2014 by Sarah Brown | 0 Comments

One of my favorite things is learning what my friends enjoy….what books they read, what resources they use to grow in their relationship with the Lord, what activities they have found that can keep my preschooler entertained for the longest amount of time possible, what tips they have for removing black tar from my son’s bottom after an unfortunate incident in the garage this weekend….praise the Lord for friends (and Google).

I want Glowing Local to be a place where you can find new and fun businesses run by Christian women. A place to find resources that (practically) shove you towards the Lord. A place to point out the good things going around online right now.

So, to kick off, if you were my best friend, and we were sharing a cup of tea on my dog-hair covered couch, I would want you to know:

  1. Brooke McGlothlin of the MOB society (and author of one of my favorite books Praying for Boys) is encouraging families to have a heart of thanksLIVING this holiday season. As she says in her post, "how great would it be to not only GIVE thanks, but to LIVE thanks.” Follow along with her #thanksLIVING hashtag on her Instagram to see her daily prompts.
  2. Last week, I listened to the Influence Network’s podcast interviewing Gretchen of Life Lived Beautifully. She has some great suggestions on daily quiet times. I have used (and loved) her Give Me Jesus journal for a few months…can’t wait for her new products to hit her store later this month!
  3. I recently finished reading Not By Sight…great read! I usually fly through books, and this one had me reading slowly. I have returned to it recently, rereading applicable sections, as I’ve been studying through John.
  4. Speaking of studying John, have you read Women of the Word yet? If not, ORDER IT IMMEDIATELY. It was eye opening in how I now do my quiet times.
Have any cool products, books, or companies we should check out?
