What I’m into (June 2013)

1 Comment

this is me, pretending to bake at Osterley House, I know, I am awesome.

I feel like it was just May, where on earth has the month of June disappeared to? This month hasn’t been the easiest of my life, I’ve been working through some things about the future, and purpose, and stuff. I come through June bruised a little, but with a lot of hope. 

On my bookshelf:

Nothing, zero, naught, nada. I’m a bit embarrassed that I’m not ashamed about this revelation. Sorry. I’ll do better.

In my reader:

Can I just tell you how disappointed I am that google reader is shutting down on July 1st? I don’t even know what that means properly, but I know I’m going to have to do some work to keep reading the blogs I like.

I love this post by Stephanie May for Prodigal, she’s so honest about the transition from dating to being married, honestly, I don’t know if I’ve ever read anyone being so honest about this stuff.

If you’ve ever been confused about what being feminine is, I’d commend this piece by Megan Gahan to you, it is wonderful.

Rachel Held Evans had a couple of posts, that were informative and challenging, if you’re part of a church, you should read them. 11 things I wish more pastors would say and what pastors want to hear from their congregations.

Finally, I love this confession from Jon Acuff. We’ve all done it Jon.

On my screen.

I’m working on being myself in all places, and in the light of that I need to tell you something. I love Made in Chelsea, it’s not something I’m proud of, but it is something that I’m working on, pray for me would you?

On my iPod.

Do you know what I’ve been doing this month? I’ve been working through the entire genre on my iPod that’s named Jesus Music, it’s mostly entirely horrid, but I’ve discovered some absolute gems that I’d forgotten all about, don’t ask me what, I’m too embarrassed.

On a side note, when I first learned to drive, over a decade ago, I used to feel so bad that I’d turn the music down when someone would walk passed my car when I was listening to Jesus Music, because I’d always turn the music down. I thought it was because I was ashamed of Jesus, turns out I was just mortified by my taste in music.


I got a National Trust membership, which basically means I’m old. I went on my first outing this week, and it was a blast, I cannot wait to do it again.

I had a birthday dinner with a little girl I used to nanny, which was an absolute delight, she was five, and she say’s I’m the best nanny ever, after Mary Poppins.

I finished my piece for Brandy’s new ebook Wild Goslings. It’ll be released July 15th, check back here to get your copy.

Having Kelly Maxted as my best friend, that’s a highlight every month, I just wanted to say it here.

One thought on “What I’m into (June 2013)

  1. Sarah, there is no shame in watching Made in Chelsea! I totally got sucked into the first season and wondered the other day if the Style Network planned on airing the next season. I don’t know what a National Trust membership is but I’m glad you had fun.

    Thanks for linking up with What I’m Into!
