It might seem odd, but I don’t read very many blogs. I read magazines in the good old-fashioned way, and I read articles from the New York Times on my phone, but blogs kind of overwhelm me. There are too many out there, and I just can’t keep up. So I generally stick to Time, The Atlantic, Christianity Today, The Christian Century, Books and Culture, The New Yorker . . .
But I do subscribe to a few, just a few, other blogs. I’ve recommended Sara Hagerty’s blog and Ellen Painter Dollar’s blog before (and I’ll be writing more about Ellen’s excellent new book, No Easy Choice, soon). So today I want to tell you all about Micah Boyett Hohorst, otherwise known as Mama Monk. She’s the mother of two young kids. She’s a Christian. And she’s an excellent writer. I subscribed to her blog a few weeks back, and it’s great. Here’s a taste of my most recent favorite posts:
Fumbling Toward Alleluia, in which she writes about kids in church and how we’re all just trying to figure it out,
and Poem-a-Day Friday: Thomas Heise, in which she shares her favorite poem of the week (I love these every week, this just happens to be the most recent one).
