Hello, and happy Friday! It's that time of the week again where I talk about stuff I've been loving recently and today I have some awesome things to mention.
First. We got dumped on this week and so I have been loooving all the snow! I have the biggest itch to go skiing again...
You may have heard of the story of the woman who publicly announced on her blog her decision not to wear yoga pants/leggings because of the lustful thoughts they might inspire in men. Since then, the woman and her husband appeared on Good Morning America and her decision has sparked a heated discussion among the Christian community. I totally get where she is coming from and agree with her decision, but I really appreciated this post that points out how we can get so focused on things that seem so small in the face of the world's biggest problems. I am not saying (nor is she) that modesty is not important, far from it. Rather, she argues that the huge discussions/controversy/rants/anger/obsession the church has over things like this is wrong. It has happened before, and she bravely posits that there are far more important and critical things Christians could pour energy and time into than adding their two cents to online debates on clothing. I really appreciated what she said.
I know I mention something about She Reads Truth in almost every "This Girl Likes" post, but their newest study is on the book of Esther and though I'm only a day in, I can already tell it's going to be awesome. You can follow along on their app, or sign up to receive the daily studies in an email on their site.
This tweet popped up in my timeline last week and I have to say that I can definitely relate. It just says what I have thought for a long time.
And that's it for this week! I will hopefully have a War and Peace update up this weekend, and thanks for reading! xo, Ella
