On [most] Mondays, I share my mixed tape of a smattering of thoughts, ideas, videos, songs, etc. that stuck out to me in the past week. Here is this Monday’s mix:
::JJ Heller is often a regular part of my mixed tape Mondays. This recent video of hers brought tears to my eyes.
::Next up is a video from Switchfoot. They revamped their song “Voices” thanks to Lindsey Stirling’s talent.
::Parenting is a really tough job. I fail at it every day. This article from Desiring God helped me to put some things in perspective, even as I think about the long-term for my children’s lives. It isn’t supposed to be about me!
::I haven’t read or watched much about the transformation of Kanye West but I found this article by Bryan Loritts helpful. As I’ve heard various conversations over the past month, I have thought about the radical conversion of the apostle Paul as well as singer Keith Green. I would imagine it is very difficult to take the journey Kanye is taking while in the spotlight.
::Last but not least, I know I’ve mentioned these before around this time of year but here are a few of our favorite picture books for November: Balloons Over Broadway by Melissa Sweet, An Outlaw Thanksgiving by Emily Arnold McCully, Cranberry Thanksgiving by Wende and Henry Devlin and The Firefighters’ Thanksgiving by Maribeth Boelts.
