:: This piece on the church coming around inmates after prison made me cheer.

:: This review of Falling Free made me weepy. 

:: An important way to help support foster- and adoptive families.

:: How to host a crappy dinner. (YES!)

:: Have you ever joked (in good fun!) about "black" names? Me, too. This piece was on-point and convicting. 

:: On the underrated magic of grocery store flowers. (I've been doing this for years and it really is (lazy) genius!)

:: A local reader (a man!) knows how fond Silas is of Adele's "Hello" and sent us this version.

:: A lengthy but worth-it read on valuing children in church. "Children don’t want to know about God. They want to know God"

:: Want to make my day? Leave a review of Falling Free over at Amazon, GoodReads, Barnes & Noble, etc. It's such a simple way to help people find the book. (Reviews can be as short as one sentence.)

:: Did I just give you homework on a Saturday? Let me make it up to you with a slice of this. (My friend Sarah made this for me recently with raspberries and it was amazing!)

Happy Weekend, Homies!
