The first week of 2012 is officially over, and (sadly) so is the holiday season. We at 4word hope the year has started well for you. If you, like some of the members of our team, have a New Year’s resolution that you are trying to keep, you’ll especially love this week’s Friday Favorites.
Around the Blogosphere
We thought we’d start off this week’s roundup on a lighter note. Below is Rhett and Link’s take on New Year’s resolutions.
And now, on a more serious note, our favorite blog posts this week:
- The Working Mom’s Devotional – You ladies remember Susan DiMickele, right? She led our online book club at the end of last year. Susan has just launched a new blog series. Check it out and recommend it to the other working moms in your life.

- “Desire vs. Commitment” – On the subject of keeping New Year’s resolutions, Justin Davis asks what would happen if your commitment to change started matching your desire to change.
- “If you could live 2012 over again…” – … wait, what?! Don Miller has an interesting take on making and keeping those resolutions, based on the work of psychologist Victor Frankl.
- “The Shy, Single Christian’s Guide to Coffee Hour” – In this slightly tongue-in-cheek article, Boundless blogger Thomas Eric Rutherford offers eight tactics for gals or guys to employ in effort to meet a special someone at their church.
