Click Bait, Mate

Links of the Week! Hey Friends! I’m back and wanted to share some of my favorite things on the internet this week. I spend a lot of time trying to gather inspiration and knowledge for life. So here are a few things this week that have really inspired me and I hope they inspire you too!


“Student vs. Scavenger” from Chris Durs0.

You guys, where do I even start? My husband, Byron and I listened to this message a while back but find ourselves constantly going back to listen again. Chris Durso is an incredible speaker, author and pastor… He recently visited my home church in Nashville, The Belonging Co. and preached one of the best messages I’ve ever heard in my life, if not the best. I encourage you to sit down with a mug of tea, a note book and some tissues because this message changed my life and I’m sure it will impact yours too.


You Are Wanted from Live Original

I love Sadie Robertson and her blog! This is a guest post from Alyssa Bethke and I think it’s absolutely a beautiful truth filled post and I hope it encourages you.


“Emerald Kale Salad” from Feasting At Home.

I don’t know about you guys, but I am constantly trying to eat better, feel better and save money by cooking at home…but sometimes it just takes too much time and too much energy! But, the other day I was scrolling through Pinterest and found this kale salad. I had all of the ingredients so I made it and I absolutely LOVED it. I served it with some Trader Joe’s Thai Veggie Gyoza and it was one of my favorite meals we’ve ever had at home. If you work in an office like I do, I suggest making this salad for dinner and saving a portion of it for lunch the next day!


A Gift Box from Bloom and Blossom.

I don’t know if you guys saw these on my story last week, but I recently showed you a box I ordered from this cute company called Bloom and Blossom! They make curated gift boxes that makes giving presents (or treating yourself!) really easy! I loved everything in my box and I think you guys would love this too! I love supporting small business anytime I can!

This is one of my favorite stories in the Bible. Back in those days, I don’t imagine much attention was paid to women and their “issues”. I always think about how lonely this woman must have been; you know, in those times, households needed water at the very start of the day – so that’s when all the wives and daughters would go get their household supply, and perhaps spend a minute or two catching up on the town business, like women do everywhere. Why did that one woman go to the well in the heat of the day, when no one else was around? I imagine it was because she wasn’t welcome in the woman-club. She was an outsider, had a past, a bad reputation. Luckily for her, and for all of us, Jesus was an outsider, too.
Love this post. Thank you!
