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.

I found so many good articles and posts this week: some deeply spiritual, some funny, some practical the internet was on fire, it seemed! If you have someone else’s article to nominate, be sure to let me know next week before noon on Thursday.


Laser Listening: Paying Attention from Inside Out (an interview with author Adam S. McHugh)

Liturgical Meditations: Pentecost (a video meditation from Fuller Studio)

I want to be all flame via Morgan Guyton (on becoming overwhelmed by the brilliance of God)

This Is the Place via Carolyn Arends (a video reflection on the intersection of spirituality, music, and songwriting)

Prayer for a New Day of Promise and Opportunity via April Yamasaki (“The day lies before us like a page waiting to be written . . .”)

Finding God in Fairytales via Tanya Marlow (how stories, imagery, and faraway worlds help us connect with God)

Getting to the Core of Your Distractions via C. S. Lakin (identifying what most distracts you and keeps you from being productive)

The Writer’s Process via Hallie Cantor (hilarious . . . because if you don’t laugh, you’ll cry)
