The weekend’s almost here, which means it’s time for another Friday Favorites post featuring our own weekly articles and some of our favorites from around the blogosphere.
This Week at 4word
We’ve been talking about work. We started off the week with Diane’s review of Susan DiMickele’s Chasing Superwoman. Diane wrote about what an encouragement it was to hear another woman writing honestly about her efforts to balance her faith, young family and a demanding career. Then on Wednesday, we spoke with Rachel Cruze, a speaker for Dave Ramsey’s Financial Peace University (and Dave’s daughter!), about financial stewardship. Rachel explained why money is a horrible master to serve and gave us advice on how to master it.
