Quote: i typically believe that "i can learn from everything" which doesn't necessarily mean that it "happens for a reason" but that regardless of reasons, I can learn something about myself, the cosmos, the world around me, others, etc, through whatever i'm experiencing. So, when I'm feeling down about something, i ask myself "what can i learn from this experience?" by changing the focus to what my learning process is, i move away from the upset and toward...
I read Watch for the Light each Advent, and I just started Grace (Eventually) by Anne Lammott, one of my favorite Christian authors. I recommend anything by her!
I like them both! We have subscribed to Ode for a while, though I think we've expired b/c we haven't gotten one in a long time. I have enjoyed them, but I've also been impressed with the Yes issues I've seen. I like the international flavor of Ode.
I read excerpts from this in college, but that was too long ago for me to be a helpful discussion partner! I do remember her being incredibly provocitive and profound, though. Happy reading!
I just wanted to post a link to an article that I thought added good ideas to the conversation surrounding this film and trilogy. Leave it to the Christian Science Monitor to be thought provoking!

Another Elves and Angels fan here! Ours gets played with EVERY SINGLE DAY! I think a good kitchen is well worth the investment. We were able to get ours with the $$ help of extended family--it was dd's main present last Christmas. I have a friend who is a carpenter, and he made a kitchen for his dd after seeing ours. He said that after materials and time, he thought the price we paid through Nova Natural was a good deal! A handmade piece of furniture takes a lot of...
Can anyone point me to articles or websites that discuss this from an angle other than "an OB is essential" angle? (I googled and only came up with pro-medical model sites.) I'm looking for a balanced perspective to share with my smart but fairly mainstream sister. She's not ready for Ina May Gaskin or something like that. TIA!
