I really wanted to come up with some filler. I scoured the internet for something to balance things out, something that would say, “Hey! She’s not whacked!” But since I already told you to check out the Compassion Nicaragua posts…I got nothing left.
So as I sit here listening to Ann Voskamp’s website because I have 15,916 tabs open on my browser and I can’t find hers, I’m owning up to the fact that I have two favorite posts from this week and they couldn’t be more polar opposite. Like, comically opposite.
A Holy Experience – A Letter to the North American Church: Because it is Time
Don’t be deterred by the serious sounding title. You’ll love reading it. It is an absolutely fabulous read and if you read anything at all today, please read this. It’s beautiful and inspiring. Well, it’s Ann…so obviously.
Jen Hatmaker – Surviving Summer
When I share this post, I’m assuming you’ve read her Worst End of School Year Mom post, which I believe to be a great work of American Literature (and went so viral she was invited on Good Morning America). How do you follow up brilliance like that? More brilliance…as in…my cheeks hurt from laughing brilliance.

Anyone else love Ann and Jen as much as I do? Discuss. When I grow up, I want to write like they do. Enjoy these reads, and have an absolutely amazing weekend, my friends.
