The File Room: February, Vol. 2


And we near the end of the shortest month of the year. In honor of its brevity, I present a concise collection of links. (No really, it’s not because I was lazy.) Quality over quantity.

Rejoice, To Kill a Mockingbird fans! My guess is you all have heard the news. I’m not expecting it to top her classic, but I was more than a little thrilled.

I saved this beautiful excerpt on suffering that Tim Challies shared.

Everyone had something to say about Fifty Shades of Gray this month. I didn’t read too many articles, but I thought this one cut to the heart of the matter.

The future is here. Is Apple going to make an iCar? Interesting tech read. And I typically avoid the comment sections like the plague, but some of the ones here were a hoot.

I made Apple Pie Oatmeal for days when I got sick. I went in skeptical, but this was delicious and simple. Top notch comfort food.

In honor of the month of love (or really, just extreme commercialization)…

He’s more myself than I am. Whatever our souls are made of, his and mine are the same. – Emily Bronte

The File Room: January, Vol. 1

Yes, it’s one of Those Things every guy and his brother does: the daily / weekly / monthly roundups, or highlights. With the new year and all, I thought I’d jump on the bandwagon before it wheeled away into the horizon. Who knows what this will evolve into, but you can probably expect linkups to all things literature & writing, Christian pieces, tech articles, and delicious food recipes. “These are a few of my favorite things…”

Without further adieu, I present the first volume of The File Room.

Al Mohler gives an insightful analysis on worldviews and extremism in light of Charlie Hebdo.

An older post on stewardship, but I bookmarked it as an excellent reference and refresher, especially for a new year.

Remember the aching beauty of art.

Rachel offers some helpful tips for reading, particular when life is huffing full-steam ahead.

If you’re tired of eating lunch out, I’ve found some awesome inspiration with Project Lunch Box.

Also, best banana bread recipe I’ve come across thus far.

If you’re a T. Swift fan (or a closet fan, which I know covers you ALL. kidding), I loved this artsy mash-up.

What doesn’t kill us gives us something new to write about. – Julie Wright
