The Warren & the World is Story Warren’s weekly newsletter, providing a round-up of our favorite things from around the web as well as a review of what was on our site over the past week. We’re glad you’re here!
Clancy Harrison guest posts at Real Mom Nutrition has a piece up looking at the reality of food insecurity in our communities and the ways our families can get involved in serving those who face it.
Tim Challies has a series on his blog called “Run to Win” in which he challenges men to lifelong godly pursuits. His words are not just for men, however, and women also can take up the challenge to practice devotion.
We’ve turned the corner into June, and it’s really and truly spring in the northern climes–and really and truly summer in the southern ones (and really and truly the opposite seasons below the equator!). Glenn McCarty has a piece for us about the blessedness of tactile work, from counting coins to gardening.
Amanda Bird explores the deeper meanings of children’s books, particularly Phoebe Gilman’s Something from Nothing.
The Kids Activities Blog has a set of printable Random Acts of Kindness cards that you can use as you seek to help the kids in your life look outside themselves and serve others.
Some days, Dick Van Dyke and an a capella group wind up singing “Chitty Bang Bang” in a California Denny’s. Because some days are just delightful like that. (And here’s a link to the original from the movie for reference on how well he remembered the words!)
Thank you for reading. We’re on your side.
