Link Love: Snarky Meets Sublime

on | in Everything Else | by | with 17 Comments

As you know, I suck at faith. And talking about my faith. Which is why when I sat down to write a post on this Good Friday, nothing happened. No words bolting through my mind like a lightning storm. Wait, wait . . . I think I’ve got . . . no, I’ve got nothing. For a minute there I thought I really thought was going to pull it off. **Sigh**

Do you remember learning to ride a bike? One minute you’re riding the rims of Thing 1 and Thing 2 (otherwise known as training wheels) like a banshee in the driveway, then somehow the “feel” of it just grabs you and you’re free to take the road. I think, or at least I hope, that faith is like that. So with that in mind I ‘d like to introduce you to Snarky and Sublime, two writers that I lean on as I try to get the hang of this faith thing. There are more, but for the sake of the metaphor I picked two.

Jaime The Very Worst Missionary: Snarky + Soul

She’s raw. She makes me laugh out loud AND squirm in my seat on a regular basis. Oh, and she says extremely inappropriate things . . . this is your official warning.

But she loves Jesus. Not Air Freshener Jesus. Or Bumper Sticker Jesus. Or Chocolate Bunny Jesus.  And the way she talks about him makes me want to know him more, too.

Oh, and I also love that when I’ve had a bad parenting day I can go read this post.

Sublime Sally

What can I say? I l-o-v-e Sally Clarkson. This was not my plan (which incidentally, was to resist her bandwagon because her conference this year was called Mom Heart and that sounded goofey to me. Arbitrary, I know). But I got a last minute ticket and went . . . and then read one of her books and found her blog, read this post on first-time obedience, and was hooked.

So there they are, the yin and yang training wheels on my spiritual bicycle. One woman’s most recent photo shows a little  boobage, but when I look at her I see Jesus. The other is probably the most wholesome author I have ever read and when I look at her I see . . . you guessed it! So, if you were wanting something thematic to read for Good Friday, go read them!

And hey, if Jaime happens to make you snort milk out of your nose be sure to come back and let me know!

  1. Wonderful Heather,
    I am honored to be connected to you. What a great Good Friday surprise–but your words are awfully generous. Love your blog. Love your pics. Love your great way of writing and wish you lived down the street. Thanks for making my day.

      Oh wow, I am so honored that you stopped by, Sally! And I’m sorry about that Mom Heart thing . . . it was a lifechanging experience, for sure!

    I’m so glad you linked to Jamie the VWM–you and she are two of my favorites!

    • Heather says:

      Aww, thanks! At least for this morning I feel like I’m sitting at the cool lunch table now!

      • biscuit23 says:

        Bahaha! Please–you’re always at the cool table! I love your blog so much, even though I rarely comment. I don’t have kids yet, but I think that, when I do, I will share many of your parenting philosophies. You raise so many important topics that most of non-kid-havers don’t think about, and I really appreciate it.

    Thank you so much for posting these other blogs. What a great read both of them are. All of you ladies are so remarkable in different ways. I could just spend hours reading all of you guys blog post. So inspiring and heart felt

    Thank you for sharing

    Thanks for your post today. Both of those ladies blogs touched my heart and made me cry this morning. I want to be that sweet, gentle, nudging, merciful mamma who raises up healthy (spiritually, emotionally, and physically) children! I know there will be days where I feel like Jamie but in those days I hope to see the “lucky parts”! Thanks Heather! P.s. I am a fan of snarkyness!
    And will be adding Sally’s books to my list of must reads (for both me & my hubby).
    Have a great weekend!

  5. You’re awesome, Heather! Thanks for the link love, and for just being a cool person/great Mom/smokin’hot wife – you make the world better on so many levels!! =)

    Ha! I never knew you were resisting the Sally bandwagon?!

  7. Elisabeth says:

    Haha! thank you for putting “boobage” and “I see Jesus” in the same sentence.
    You might be interested in my (somewhat heretical) blog: http://pickinguptheconversation.wordpress.com. If you look around there, please let me know what you think – and feel free to disagree with any- and everything, ’cause it’s out there, I know!

    LOVE todays post, Heather!! Jamie’s blog is one of my favorites- and totally made me spit out my drink the first time I read it.

  9. Thank you so much for sharing! Sally’s post is EXACTLY what I have been searching for as far as discipline goes! Can’t wait to read her book :)
