Welcome to another edition of The Friday Five here at The Watered Soul. It’s where I share a few of my favorite reads during the week. A small way to shine the spotlight on various bloggers across the blogosphere sharing intriguing content.
I hope your week has been a great one and may your weekend be even better.
This weeks Friday Five picks are:
MY LOVE DOES NOT GIVE A DAMN… by Jamal Jivanjee
One of my favorite lines in his post is,
“It is only when we no longer fear the opinion & judgment of others that we can truly love them. Love compels us to not give a damn.” – Jamal Jivanjee
On Why You Need to Keep Writing by Ashley at This Southern Girl’s Heart
Do you ever have those moments when you are afraid to hit the publish button? I do so I could relate all too well with what Ashley shared and she reminded me to keep writing anyway.
Give Yourself Permission to Trust at Debi Stangeland
When you have been hurt or disappointed repeatedly, you can begin to close yourself off and vowed never to trust again. Debbi reminds us of the many ways the enemy uses to prevent true healing.
Like a master story teller she weaves a beautiful lesson of blueberries and spreading the message of salvation to those who are ripe and ready to hear the message of salvation. But doing so may require us to leave our places of convenience and comfort.
Alex J Cavanaugh on Morality in Writing at Tossing It Out
This guest post by Alex left me thinking about questions I hadn’t really ever pondered as a reader. It’s no secret I love to read. Below are the questions he posed.
- Should an author’s moral compass be reflected in his writing?
- Does it depend on the genre or does it depend on the author?
- What about thrillers, crime novels, or horror, genres that require a dark center?
- Does it matter to the reader? – Alex Cavanaugh
