Inspiring Blogs: People I actually know!

Continuing my series on "Inspiring Blogs", here are a few awesome blogs that don't fit into any particular category, except that I know all of these people in "real time" and not just virtually.: ) I hope you will find them just as inspiring as I do!

Just click on the titles of the blogs to go straight to them.


Troy is one of the most playful people I have ever met. With Godly Play in his background, he takes the discussion of what it means to "play" further in this blog. Several philosophers and theologians in the 20th and 21st centuries have argued that the ability to play is part of what makes us human. (Take that Thomas Aquinas! It's not all about reason!!) You'll be encouraged and have a lot to playfully ponder as you read Troy's thoughts.

Shared From Way Over Here

Jenni is a former colleague of mine who along with her husband runs a hospitality center in Portugal. On her blog, she shares about interior decorating, crafting, sewing, homeschooling and living abroad. Maybe someday I'll talk her into coming and decorating my home for me!

Amazing & Amusing

I've written about Asmic's blog and linked to her quite a bit in the past. We met many years ago in her native Uzbekistan and have remained friends ever since. Her blog is aptly titled, because she never ceases to amaze me with her energy and creativity. Asmic writes about her adventures with her three boys and the other children in her life - anything that she finds amazing and amusing.

Lark & Bloom

I had the privilege of observing Liz as a third culture kid growing up in Siberia, and her Dad was my boss for many years. She has a quirky and witty writing style that will keep you in stitches as she muses over life, parenthood and faith.
