Friday Faves – April 3, 2020

Friday Faves is where I’ll come and share with you the things across the Internet that sparked a little joy for me this week. You see, enjoying life fully is a part of my REST pillar and engaging in good content, which is like beautiful art, is one of those things.

If you come across something that sparked joy for you, please share it with me using the “Contact” form. 

Here are my top picks for this week:

This episode of the  “Life and Godliness” podcast with Host Joanna Simpson and guest, Pastor Joel Bain of Grace Family Church. 

Receiving the gift of rest is something I have struggled with since I was a teenager. I love the ways that God is calling me to rest in Him as I grow older. It’s been painful and beautiful, and this episode of Life and Godliness left me with quite a bit to meditate on this week. Actively pursuing rest is one of my 3 pillars to health, and Biblical perspective is always so refreshing!

Pinto Pottery’s Instagram page. 

This is a random one for me, but I just love good art. Creative arts run through my veins: I’m the daughter of a graphic artiste, and in a previous life I used to sing. This right here is functional art made in Jamaica. I can’t wait to get my hands on a few pieces for my kitchen. Thinking about those bowls for my sauces, salads and marinades. 

Viewing his art has me understanding why my granny had a breakfront. These babies NEED to be displayed! 

Please support local Jamaican artistes.

Jolene Brighten’s “Beyond The Pill”.

I’m only a few pages into this book. I love all things reproductive health and I love how this book lays things out. Her writing is not too academic, but using a friendly, conversational tone, she goes deep enough into the science of women’s health and the ill effects of the contraceptive pill, to keep you engaged. I wish resources like these were around back in the day, as a gal who spent too many years on the pill because of PCOS.

I am so grateful to all the creators who take time on their art – whether i’s a podcast, pottery, or a great book – so that we can consume and enjoy it!

Have a great weekend!
