Makes Me Happy Monday: Linky Love (number 9)

Sharing a little linky love from around the web.

As a girl mom, this blog post by Jen Wilkin piqued my interest. Great points: On Daughters and Dating: How To Intimidate Suitors. My favorite part: "Instead of intimidating all your daughter’s potential suitors, raise a daughter who intimidates them just fine on her own. Because, you know what’s intimidating? Strength and dignity. Deep faith. Self-assuredness. Wisdom. Kindness. Humility. Industriousness. Those are the bricks that build the wall that withstands the advances of old Slouchy-Pants, whether you ever show up with your Winchester locked and loaded or not. The unsuitable suitor finds nothing more terrifying than a woman who knows her worth to God and to her family."

My latest addiction? The Invisibilia podcast. Fascinating topics, especially The Secret History of Thoughts.

Mom Hides the King's Hawaiian Rolls is one of the cutest commercials I've seen in a long time. I even laughed out loud.

Great teaching on how to distinguish between Promises, Principles, Proverbs and Prophecies...because not every biblical promise is a promise for today.

Highly encouraged by this blog post by John Piper: The Eighth Decade of Life and the Ultimate Purpose of God

Think this pin will be my next home project. I love quotes and a whole wall of them sounds quite lovely.

And to wrap things up, here's a post from the vaults: Surprises Sometime Come In Bundles of Pink
