Five [Awesome] Things I Read This Week

Five Awesome Things I Read This Week copy

1.  A solid plan for becoming a better speaker:  Peter Sims on the Harvard Business Review (HBR) Blog Network, in Going from “Suck to Non-Suck”.
2.  Acknowledging the weird way Christianity sounds when you don’t dig a bit deeper:  Emily Maynard from Emily Is Speaking Up, in The Gospel Party.
3. Potentially the most delicious beverage I’ve seen since Christmas:  Jessica from How Sweet it Is and the Blood Orange Sangria.  YUM.
4.  If you’re in the Christian blogging network and haven’t read this post yet this week, get to it:  Sarah Bessey, in In Which I Am Damaged Goods FYI:  She is not actually damaged goods.  And neither are you.
5.  And finally, an amazing guest blog by Danielle Vermeer on J.R. Goudeau’s Love is What You Do:  Educated Beyond My Level of ObedienceFull disclosure here — I’m supposed to be writing a guest blog for J.R. on this subject in just a few weeks, and I’m so scared to do it poorly that I haven’t been able to start typing yet!  So hopefully I’ll summon up my courage and finish thinking the subject through and turn the notes in my journal into something interesting by Presidents Day.  Hopefully.
