Anyway — I was able to do some light reading this week during the "extra" time I had from slowing down. Here are a few of my favourite blog posts, ideas, and links from the week:
Links About Food:
• Should You Cut Nightshade Veggies from Your Diet?: "As with any major diet decision, the answer really depends on your body. If you have a chronic inflammatory condition (like rheumatoid arthritis or osteoarthritis), an autoimmune illness (such as lupus, celiac, MS, or psoriasis), or your body is just sensitive to nightshades, eliminating them may be right for you, but try it systematically...However, if you regularly eat nightshades and feel great, there’s really no reason to ditch these nutritious foods."
Links About Family:
• Speaking Love to Your Spouse: Affirmation or Gifts [Audio]: "Does it sometimes feel as if you and your spouse are speaking different languages? Well, perhaps that’s exactly what is happening! Dr. Gary Chapman helps you come up to speed as he unpacks two of the five love languages."
• 20 No Mess Sensory Activities [For toddlers]: "These activities aren’t messy, and most of the materials are things you probably have around the house!"
• How to Make a Bible Notebook: "Having easy access to lessons God has already taught us through his Word in past situations builds our confidence in his faithfulness in our current and future circumstances."
