I have something to share with you that I am really excited about. Like this excited:
I have been following, reading and loving the blog of Sarah Bessey for a while now. To be honest the first thing that attracted me to her blog is the fact that she is Canadian. There are so many amazing blogs of progressive Christian women (like SO MANY AWESOME ONES) but not that many of them originate in the Great White North (which is really more of an Annoying Grey Rain right now). Of course I do admire many things about Sarah’s blog aside from the fact she, and thus the blog, are Canadian. She also seems to like Tina Fey gifs which is an all around win in my book.
I love the honesty with which she writes. This isn’t a bitch session about parenting, it is a beautiful piece about how parents in their thirties are often…reallly…tired. So true.
I love her mission to share how Jesus made her a Feminist because it rings true with my own story from my initial days of church and feeling so confused as to why everyone wasn’t a tree-hugging feminist.
I also appreciate that she can write. I know that sounds lame but there are a lot of blogs out there (this one is no exception) that are written by people who are not writers. Sure we can write, as in compose sentences in order, but this woman is a writer! This is why I am writing about her today. She wrote the following book and it is coming out tomorrow Nov 5.
You can pretty much order it anywhere (Chapters, Amazon etc.). You may even get so excited that you join this group of cool people like I did.
The best part of the story is Sarah is coming to my little women’s group (along with a few friends we invited) THIS WEEK to talk about her book. I can’t wait!
