Five Things Friday

Five Things to Look at On The Internet

1. After Steubenville: 25 Things Our Sons Need to Know About Manhood 

As a mother of a son (and another arriving at any moment), this post by Ann Voskamp wrecked me.

2. My Life as a Beautiful Failure: Infertility and Ego

Amanda Martin (wife of Jonathan, whose work I’m a big fan of), wrote this this week about finding her identity outside of her failure.  It’s so good, and now I’m a big fan of hers, too.

3. 33 Dogs That Cannot Even Handle It Right Now

I’ve been suffering from pretty horrible insomnia for the past couple of weeks, and last night this had me silent laughing in my bed at 4am.  And I’m not even a dog person.

4. Elijah Talks About: Sexism!

This is Elijah.  His family are friends of ours. He’s definitely the coolest 15-year-old I know.  He has his own youtube channel where he shares videos of him being his awesome self, being funny, and making good music. (also, Americans, BRITISH ACCENT)

5. Bleeding Love | So You Think You Can Dance

This is a bit of a flashback.  When we lived with our friends Steve and Sarah in 2009, just before we moved back to England from North Carolina, Sarah and I used to watch So You Think You Can Dance every. single. week. This was one of our favorite dances, and I still love it so much.

  1. I love Ann Voskamp! As I was reading your newest post, I thought of recommending her to you because your writing somewhat reminds me of hers. I just finished her book “A Thousand Gifts” and it changed my life. I love reading her blog too. She’s wonderful, and her post about Steubenville was amazing.
