Summer Loving (AKA: Reading)

First of all, I wanted to give you a chance to check out the latest Blueprint58 Newsletter for all the latest on what we have been doing, and what's coming up with ministry stuff for the Stanleys.

I am always telling Adam: I'm not sure how you're supposed to be a good mom AND an introvert. It's exhausting. I read this one and felt a strong sense of me too! (which is one of the best feelings, right?) - The Struggle of the Introverted Mother

Also this one from Jen Hatmaker: Our Parenting Yes's and No's

A few more good reads from the around the internet:
The Power of Hope is Real
What the News Isn't Telling You and Why We Can't Afford to Pretend it's Not Happening - Ann's post is everywhere, and in fact I'm a little late to share. But just in case you haven't read it yet, you definitely should.
Mass Incarceration: The Politics Behind the Bars  (An infographic illustrating mass incarceration).
Summertime seems the perfect time to sit by the pool with a good book (we're still trying to figure out how to actually make this happen, however, with two small children). Regardless, summer reading guides are my favorite (and here's a few I'm using to find my next good read this summer):
The Relevant Summer Reading Guide
Modern Mrs. Darcy - The 2015 Summer Reading Guide
21 Books from the Past 5 Years That Every Woman Should Read
Honoring Black Writers: 25 Books for Your Summer Reading

And a few of my latest reads (my favorites are marked with a star)
*We are Called to Rise - Laura McBride
- Book of Unknown Americans - Cristina Henríquez
- The Solace of Leaving Early - Haven Kimmel
- A God in Ruins - Kate Atkinson
* Saving CeeCee Honeycutt - Beth Hoffman
- The Moment Between - Nicole Baart
* The Beautiful Daughters - Nicole Baart
- Ruby - Cynthia Bond

And then I finally got him to open his cute little blue eyes :-)
