Here's another round of Positive Things on the Internet!
1) This interview with Whitney Lundeen is beautiful, raw, and empowering. She is the designer behind those amazing play-dresses we've all see at Sonnet James. Whitney escaped an abusive marriage, and if that alone weren't incredible to read about, I was especially inspired by how she spoke about learning to become a mother. Whitney's parents weren't heavily involved in her life, so when she became a mom she felt ill-equipped to instantly how to have positive, involved relationships with her sons. A lot of this really spoke to my heart and I admire her strength and her entrepreneurial spirit.
Also, this is the coolest new website I've run across--interview with real "normal" Mormons!
2) My friend, Ashlee, sent me a link to this BEAUTIFUL video of a mom recounting what it was like to give birth and discover that her son had down-syndrome. Also, her blog is amazing; she's started a movement showing that kids with down syndrome are incredible, that there is nothing "down" about having their syndrome. Please check these out!
3) My friend, Kim, has a great blog, and she didn't ask me to tell you about it. I really loved her recent review and thoughts on the book, Present Over Perfect. I love how she framed the word "perfect," calling it a swear word--that really cracked me up! Kim is refreshing, and her thoughts on this important topic--being present in our own lives and not perfection-obsessed--really resonated with me. It's something I'm thinking about a lot lately!
4) We all know that we are obsessed with Chip and Joanna Gaines, of Fixer Upper fame. I mean, how can we not be? This video of them makes that obsession only grow. They talk about their relationship, and how they balance each other out in a beautiful way. What a wonderful portrait of a marriage! They also share how this relates to their beliefs on God, which I also found enlightening.
