followfridayIt is that time again.  Good news people, it is FRIDAY!  So here are a few things that I have found helpful this week.  I’d love to hear who you are learning from, listening to, and loving this week.  Also, what website or blog is a must read for you?  Time to circle the wagons and share around the camp fire.

Here’s what I have found to be helpful…

Blog: JOSHHATH

Josh is a good dude.  He’s a great pastor, and he is new to the blogging world.  He has some really great thoughts that have challenged me to think.  I love a blog that at the end of the post, I am left thinking about and reflecting on my own life.  His definitely does that.  This is a blog that I’m excited to track with from the beginning…  (make sure to check out his most recent post about life and raisin bran crunch)

Twitter: Rich Villodas

Rich is the lead pastor at New Life Fellowship Church in Queens, NYC.  He has an awesome outlook on what it means to be healthy, spiritually and mentally.  He is one smart dude for sure.  I find that he encourages me to walk closer with Jesus, and so for that I am grateful!  Check him out…

Book:  Chasing the Dragon

This is an incredible story about how one woman stood up to the drug dens in Hong Kong and rescued so many children from their grips.  It is an incredibly inspiring book of this woman who gave her life to serving Jesus and how she served Him…  This book has been challenging to me, and is one of those stories that inspires me to GO and to serve and love others well.  It is a great read… You can pick it up here.

Resource: Do’s and Don’ts for Supporting a Grieving Loved One

I came across this article and found it to be incredibly helpful.  Cristi gave words to so many of my own feelings I had when my Dad passed away.  It was a great reminder to me though about how to really take care of people who have lost someone they love… Please, do me a favor and read this.  Especially if you HAVEN’T lost someone you love yet.  All of us who have, will thank you!
