Saturday Snippets


Love this idea for pre-school age kids {thinking ahead...} to make postcards to send friends and family.

20 best places to live {based on the current real estate market}. I'm happy to say that the three places I've lived in my lifetime {Seattle, Fort Worth, Phoenix} all made the list, and the place I want to move to next {Nashville} ranks at #4.

Facebook turned 10 this past week. Read some new interesting facts about the site.

What little girls wish their daddies knew. I didn't agree with this whole list, but I thought most of them were great!

A hilarious blog post on sleep-training your infant.

A great post on one of the biggest harms to marriage today.

I love Macklemore, but I can't get behind "Same Love." I really enjoyed this remix. The lyrics are awesome.

As my best friend's Jeopardy training coach, I found this article very interesting.

In light of the Super Bowl, I really liked this post by Richard Sherman and this letter to Peyton Manning.

It's not too late to join this Love 'Em Up Challenge to help families bless each other.

Hi Jen, thanks for posting Bizzle's remix of Macklemore's "Same Love." I feel pretty comfortable saying that we're two Christian women who (I think) disagree about a Christian perspective on LGBTQ marriage/LGBTQ rights/etc. Yes? Anyway, when we had coffee the other day, you were asking about my dissertation topic and I don't think we ever got around to it; it's about the United Methodist Church's struggle with these issues over the past 40 years--basically since we became "united" Methodists. Would love to chat with you about this as well as trade some theological/scholarly articles on the subject (Because we're both academic geek girls ;), I'm sure you've got some that would show me some insight into your perspective, and I'd love to read them.) Hope y'all are having a restful Sunday at the Russum household. Peace and blessings, Emily
