introducing the friday features!


I’ve had the (completely unoriginal) idea for a weekly round-up post mulling around in my head for a while, and this week, I decided to make it happen.

Welcome to the Friday Features! 

From now on, I’ll post 5-10 reads from around the web that are eye-catching, affection-stirring and/or thought-provoking for your Friday. My hope is that these chosen pieces will be an encouragement and help to you in one or many facets of your life. I’ll list each one with an emboldened header that says something like “for the parents” or “for when you feel blue” so that you can quickly scan through the post and figure out what’s for you.

This will also be where I link to posts or articles I’ve written for other outlets in the last week. You can also always find links to content I’ve contributed to other sites on the elsewhere page (which can be found under “about” in the menu bar.)

I hope the Friday Features give you sparks of joy and propel you toward the things that matter as you head into your weekend. If you’d like to submit an article to be included in the features, you can send me the link here.

And now, the first edition of the Friday Features!
