Each week I will share three things I like – It could be a book, a movie, a podcast, an album, a photo, an article, a restaurant, a food item, a beverage, or anything else I simply enjoy and think you might too. You can find a whole pile of things, especially books, I like and recommend HERE.
1. God’s Very Good Idea by Trillia Newbell
This is a beautiful book showing kids (and adults too) God’s perfect intent in creating people of different races, cultures, gifting, and preferences and God’s perfect rescue plan to redeem those people after they screwed things up. It is a magnificent depiction of God’s image being reflected in all people and the gospel being the salvation for all people too. The illustrations are bright, colorful, and fun. It’s the kind of book any parent should get for their kids and that makes a perfect gift. Shoot, I think it is so good pastors should read it to their congregations from the pulpit on a Sunday.
2. Worthy by Beautiful Eulogy
This new album drops on 10/20, and is so good. I love what Courtland, Braille, and Thomas do lyrically and musically. It is a unique sound with rich truth – hip hop, but not like any other sound I’m aware of. I love how low key and melodic the sound is and how deep and honest the lyrics are. You can get it wherever you like to download your tunes.
I don’t have a great history of being disciplined to save money. Sorry, Dave Ramsey. I found digit a couple years ago and have found it super helpful. It is automated savings based on the status of whatever bank account you tie it to. You can tell it to save more or less aggressively, and you can manually deposit money as well. In all, I found it to be a really helpful tool for emergency savings or saving for a specific expense.
