- This week I took an online version of the Myers-Briggs personality test. I’m an INTJ (introverted/intuitive/thinking/judging). It was especially interesting to me because in the month of April my husband preached on spiritual giftedness and our Sunday school lessons have also been on the topic. It’s helpful to know yourself, so you can work through your strengths and build up your weak areas.
- I love this by Kristen about Mercy House Kenya, Why We Always Keep an Empty Bed.
“I look at young girls who came to us more desperate than you can imagine, alone and terrified. I’ve watched them transform, one brave, shaky step at a time. They have worked through their inner turmoil, fallen in love with a child they didn’t want, learned skills that will provide for their futures.”
- There were a few articles on autism I found interesting: Finding Autism Early- 6 Important Questions about Your Toddler, the Best Kept Secret documentary on what happens to people with autism when they graduate from high school, and Paying for Finn- A Special Needs Child (the cost of caring for a person with autism is $2.3 million over his lifetime).
- “Are You Qualified” from Simple Homeschool was such an encouragement to me this week.
“However despite my gaps in knowledge I am qualified to teach my children.
More so than anyone else, in fact.
Because what qualifies me to teach is not the sum of facts in my head.
What qualifies me is how well I understand my children and how deeply I care about their learning.
In our family there are no cracks for these kids to fall through.”
- I starting reading Bread & Wine by Shauna Nienquist (affiliate link) and don’t want to put it down. I did put it down for a little while and headed to the Amish market for goat cheese, but as soon as I shut down my computer, I’ll pick it up again.
“Learn, little by little, meal by meal, to feed yourself and the people you love, because food is one of the ways we love each other, and the table is one of the most sacred places we gather.”
- I guest posted for Jennifer’s site as she focused on Autism Awareness Month. You can check out my post on How to Find an Autism Support Community. And on my editing site, I shared hobbies that are especially good for writers.
Have a great weekend!
