In a cruel twist of fate, my second book released during my kids’ spring break week.
But I can’t blame fate for the fact that I am in the Wisconsin Dells at the Mount Olympus village with my Mom and my two kids. This is purely my own fault. That would be fun. I thought back in December when I saw the deal come by. Silly December Addie. Indoor water parks are not fun for grown ups! What were you thinking?
Last night I sat in our tiny hotel room and got a little weepy reading through about a third of the synchroblog posts that you guys wrote. They are so incredibly beautiful and full of wisdom. I’ll be sharing a round-up next week, but in the meantime, click around and check them out for yourself. And it’s not too late to join in if you haven’t written something already! The linkup will be open through Saturday night!
Anyway, while I go down the giant water slide with my four-year-old six thousand times, pop over and check out all the stuff I’ve been writing all over the place (which ironically all got published on the same day.)
When Your Mama Heart Has Cabin Fever (at Lisa-Jo Baker’s blog): I’m over at Lisa-Jo Baker’s place about trying to parent during your own complex faith journey. This is the closest I’ve ever really come to talking about how to raise your kids when your own spiritual journey feels displaced. I hope you’ll resonate!
A Toast to My Journey with Wine (at Christianity Today’s her.meneutics): I have all the feelings about this piece on her.meneutics today in which I talk about my struggles with moderation and the need for these conversations in Christian circles. If you want me to see your comment about this post, do it here or on Facebook, as I’ll be staying far far away from the her.menutics comment section!
Addie Zierman Night Driving Interview (at Off the Page): A couple of weeks ago, I did a phone interview with my friend Cara Strickland for Off the Page…which ballooned into an hour and a half conversation about all the things. Read part of it here!
In the meantime, think of me, lugging that giant double-tube up the waterslide steps…for eternity.
Send coffee. So. Much. Coffee.
