Monday Blogs, 4/22

Lit candle

A light shining in the darkness.

A list of my favorite blog posts over the last week, from the saddest to the funniest.

Most Heartbreaking. “Dead Sons and Daughters” by Natalie Trust. I’ve lit candles every night since I read this.

Most Needed-to-be-Said. “The Other Heroes” by Andrew Sullivan on The Dish. A timely reminder of the other part of America that is in mourning. Prayers for West, Texas, and for first responders everywhere. They are the ones that run toward danger when every else is running away.

Most Motivating. “The Heart of a Traveler. Portland, 2013 (Letting Go)” by Melissa Otterbein on Like Birds on Trees. A beautiful essay about the 2013 Faith and Culture Writing Conference and I reminder that I still need to write a longer essay on my own experience. Melissa sets the bar high.

Best Resource List. “How to Publish an E-Book: Resources for Authors” by Jane Friedman. She has so much information at her disposal and she shares all of it on her site.

Best Blackmail Material. “Video of Kirk Cousins Singing Pretty Woman in High School Play” on Hogs Haven. The Big Ten Network surprised the Redskins backup quarterback during a recent guest stint in the booth with an embarrassing video.

Best Book Review. “The Crappy Parenting Book is AWESOME” by Julie Miner. A review of Parenting: Illustrated with Crappy Pictures by Amber Dusick with perhaps the most brilliant book trailer ever.

Funniest (and Best Video Blog). “CANDY CRUSH SAGA IS EVIL” on the Glove and Boots Blog (and YouTube Channel).

Because after the last seven days we all need a good laugh.
