Rly good audiobook. :) I wanna get the actual book to read now. Apparently this book was originally published for Omf international in the 1960’s. It’s based off a series of talks and he mentions Hudson Taylor quite a lot. #omfinternational #omfintl #hudsontaylor

This morning I begged Nate to take me to get Anthony’s cookies and he said, “are you sure? You always want it when you feel good but later you’ll feel horrible.” They have gluten free cookies now so major WIN for me!

Too often, the passions if the first generation become the preferences of the second generation and are irrelevant to the third generation.

- Peter Greer and Chris Horst in “missions drift”

Has it ever occurred to you that one hundred pianos all tuned to the same fork are automatically tuned to each other? They are of one accord by being tuned, not to each other, but to another standard to which each one must individually bow. So one hundred worshipers met together, each one looking away to Christ, are in heart nearer to each other than they could possibly be, were they to become ‘unity’ conscious and turn their eyes away from God to strive for closer fellowship.

10 things I’ve learned about marriage so far

  1. The small things matter. Make the bed. Clean the dishes and put them away. Turn the television off and plan dinner so we are not both “hangry” at each other later.
  2. Even if I am always right, let him figure it out. It’s not really worth all that energy.
  3. I am not always right. Dang it.
  4. Let him know when he is good at something and he’ll do it more. For example, he makes really good strawberry banana smoothies that tastes almost like the ones we had on our honeymoon.
  5. Don’t complain about him to other people in public, even if it’s right in front of him; he doesn’t like it.
  6. Don’t get mad at him for not closing the door when he takes a dump and it stinks. Just ask him to close the door…maybe one day he’ll do it habitually.
  7. Thank him for buying things that we need without being asked, like groceries or that amazing sonicare toothbrush that makes your mouth feel super clean. Instead, thank him for taking initiative. He’s better at budgeting than I am anyway and initiative is something to be valued.
  8. He’ll do it if you ask nicely.
  9. You don’t have to do everything together; it’s okay to get my introvert-on by watching tv by myself in the other room.
  10. Verbally communicate with “I feel” sentences and questions that provoke “I feel” answers.
