While you were being a good mom 9/2/2011

Ok, my friends. I have been sharing links and I can tell by the number of viewers that you are too busy or too uninterested to actually click on them. That’s cool. I understand. But this week, give them a try. I know you are probably overloaded with links and Facebook video shares, but I have some good stuff today. Here’s what I found while you were trying to do homework and housework.

the spooky power of mentos

If you only pick one link – This app on the Mentos Facebook page made me laugh and creeped me out a little. Maybe I am just out of the loop on apps and what they can do. I really didn’t want to link my Facebook to this app, but it was well worth going through the steps to see what Mentos was capable of doing with my information. You can always remove the app later. It was a fun toy to play with. The videos you see on the page are the apps that you customize for you or your friends.

Feminism is about choices, right? – This article exposes the double-talk of some feminists who claim to want freedom and choices for women. Read this and shake your head with me over comments like this one: “I think highly educated women have a moral obligation to take top positions, to set an example by their choices.” Suddenly they are fine with imposing their morals on other women. Hmmm….

Too cool for school – Here’s a list of six things you aren’t allowed to do in school that are actually beneficial for learning. This is great information if you homeschool or if you are battling with your kids about how they do their homework. You can’t change the rules at school, but you can rethink what you do at home.

More deep truth from Tim Hawkins – this is new from Tim. This bit shot right to the top of my favorites from him.

Here’s this Friday’s link sharing party. I wondered if I could keep this up, but I have had no trouble running into weird and entertaining, challenging and point-making stuff on the Web this week. Here’s what I was doing while you were being awesome.

Too much time on her hands – this site blew my mind. Definitely look at everything in the From Scratch section and then check out the other works of art if you dare. One is called “Tooth and Nail” so consider that your warning. I loved the moth and the lightbulb also.



Tim Challies –  I read this blog every day. His blog provided the inspiration for this feature on my blog. This article shows us how our attitudes can be patterned after God’s when we are dealing with people who are set against us. God woos us back to Him, so we should also attempt to win those who hurt others because they are hurting.

Tim Hawkins! –  Honestly I stalk Tim Hawkins so badly that I thought I had run out of new things to see. I saw him live with a group of friends at the South Carolina Home School Convention. I thought I would never recover. Here is a new clip that cracked me up.

Netflix Relief Fund –  Ok, this one hurt a little.  I did a lot of griping when Netflix raised their prices so this video is directed at me. I’m trying to be a good sport and take a joke.
