Each week I like to make at least four suggestions on a resource that has been an encouragement to me. I hope it might encourage you, as well. My suggestions aren’t necessarily churched, or spiritually related, but they are good reads, listens, learnings, gadgets, and restaurants.
Here’s Your 4forFRIDAY April 28, 2017
A great listen/watch from Willow Creek Church as they interview Anne Lamott
Anne Lamott is quirky, funny and genuine. I love her writings and I greatly appreciate her candid story of how she left a life of addiction and fell in love with Jesus. She’s not for everybody, but I really think you’ll enjoy listening to her on this podcast. Enjoy!
A great little cafe in Peachtree Corners: Black Walnut Cafe:
I fell in love with this little cafe. It’s a blend of hipster coffee house, upscale local eatery, and old school menu with a few twists. The breakfast is awesome, Give it a shot – You’ll be glad that you did!
A great watch from TED with Angela Duckworth:
Leaving a high-flying job in consulting, Angela Lee Duckworth took a job teaching math to seventh graders in a New York public school. She quickly realized that IQ wasn’t the only thing separating the successful students from those who struggled. Here, she explains her theory of “grit” as a predictor of success.
A really helpful book: Downsize, from Ted Spiker:
In this often humorous, direct and purposeful book, Ted Spiker offers 12 Truths for Turning Pants-Splitting Frustration into Pants-Fitting Success. If you’ve struggled with weight, try this book.
And a quote from Anne Lamott: “You can get the monkey off your back, but the circus seems to never leave town.”
