Tidbits and Snippets for August 15th

Encouragement for the Stressed-Out Bride, or, the Secret to Happy Wedding Planning - This material is just so, so, so good - even if you don't have wedding planning in your near (or far) future. (Like Mother, Like Daughter)

Our Family Deserves the Best of Us (Avoiding a Leftover-ish Generation) - "How and why did we lose sight of the importance of our own families? When did it become “oppressive” to pour out our best on them, but emancipating to pour it out on strangers?" (Generation Cedar)

The Sin of Bathsheba - This is probably the most direct and hardcore post I have ever seen on the topic of modesty. Regardless of differing perspectives, I think each of us can take something away from the author's honest words here. (Pilgrim Ministry)

Forgetfulness - Beautiful. (Ready to Be Offered)

Hoffman Academy - Piano lessons? Online? Free? Mmmm.... Yes, please! We are going to try this with our 9yo. (Hoffman Academy, hat tip to The Modest Mom)

Dear readers, have a wonderful week!


  1. I like the sermon about the sin of Bathsheba, but I think he gives her, and all women, both too much and too little credit. Too much, because she was probably not so innocent as to have been unaware of the king's presence on the roof, and women are not as innocent of man's desire to look at them today as they'd like us to believe, either. Also, too little, because no woman with an iq above that of a lukewarm cup of coffee doesn't know exactly what she looks like at any given moment. ;)

    1. Cindy, you're cracking me up here. You are so right! LOL
