Each Friday I share some of my favorite finds related to praying or writing. If I think it could help you pray or write better, or just “be” better, I’ll include it below.

Do you have someone else’s article or post to share? Join the Contemplative Writers Facebook group, comment on today’s post on my Facebook page, or follow me on Twitter (@LisaKDeam) to nominate your favorite articles, blog posts, and books by Thursday at noon each week.


Why I Write via Anna Gissing (part of a series on writing as a spiritual discipline)

How Significant Books Become Good Friends via Richard J. Foster (I love the idea of books as friends!)

Tesser Well via Amanda Cleary Eastep (can you guess the book that served as an impetus for this essay on faith and writing?)

5 Things I Learned From My Six-Week Social Media Fast via Michelle DeRusha (don’t worry – social media’s not all bad)

The Art and Practice of Spiritual Discernment via The Transforming Center (part of a leadership podcast but good for all of us!)
