'Thy Will' - Powerful Song From Lady Antebellum's Hillary Scott And Family
I can't get enough of this song. Seriously- it's been on repeat in my office the past few days. 

Bono & Eugene Peterson Talk about Their Love for the Psalms 
Can we just take a moment and talk about the delightfulness of Eugene Peterson (writer of The Message translation of the Bible)? I love that he didn't know who Bono was. In fact, let's just sum up this whole video as a delight-- from Peterson's wife baking cookies to her telling Bono not to run up the stone path outside her house. The Psalms are the bread and butter of my time in the Word, and their conversation about them is a real treasure to listen in on. 

What Book I'm Reading this Week: Create vs Copy by Ken Wytsma 
I'm on a creativty kick this month and have enjoyed digging into a few new books about the subject. It's always fun when an author seems to share all the same influencers as you- and this is the case for me with Ken's new book, Create vs Copy. I wasn't sure what to expect but was pleasantly surprised! It left a lot for me to think about -- I'll probably come back to it at some point with my journal to take better notes.

What I Want to Tell My Daughter about Being a Mother - Lisa Jo Baker
"Sweet girl, you will find yourself breaking up with all the parts of your life you used to love – the long naps and late nights out and food eaten while still hot – and you’ll love it. You’ll love every hard, grueling moment. Because this is the mystery of motherhood. How the more we give the more we have. How Jesus is always in the business of multiplying our little and making all things new."

Baby Animal Cams 
If you know me, you know I love baby animal cams, and lately there have been so many good ones! The DC Bald Eagles have two eaglets you can watch -- I love how close up this cam is! And our local zoo just announced 13 (yes- 13!) new cheetah cubs! You can watch the babies here. The best times to watch are in the mornings and evenings-- they tend to be pretty snoozy during the afternoon! :) 

Ok- your turn! What did you love reading or watching this week? If I love it too, I can feature it next Friday! 

Have a happy weekend everyone!
