King for a Week – Amy’s Humble Musings

Articles Collection cover image

You know by now that King for a Week is an honor I bestow on blogs that I feel are making a valuable contribution to my faith and the faith of other believers…or sometimes just because I really like them. You know as well that I inevitably keep them in place for more than a week. No matter. King for a Week is simply a way of introducing my readers to blogs that they may also find interesting and edifying. Every now and again I select a blog, link to it from my site, and add that site’s most recent headlines to my right sidebar. While this is really not much, I do feel that it allows me to encourage and support other bloggers while making the readers of this blog aware of other good sites.

This week’s King for a Week is Amy’s Humble Musings. It was rather a surprise to me to realize that I had not honored this blog already. It is, after all, a blog I have been reading for quite some time now and one I enjoy, even if I am not really the primary audience for it. Amy [Scott] is, according to her brief bio, “the mother of five six kids 9 and under, wife to a handsome rocket scientist, and aspiring Proverbs 31 lady.” Her blog, which she has been updating since January of 2005, is a place for her to muse about life, family, homeschooling, the agrarian life, and other things that are of interest to her. I’ve always appreciated Amy’s ability to see and describe what is zany in life. Yet while she can encourage her readers to laugh at and with her, she also shares some valuable lessons about living this Christian life. I always look forward to her updates.

In the coming days (and/or weeks) you will be able to see the most recent headlines from this blog in the sidebar of my site. I hope you will make your way over to look around.

    How Can You Mumble?

    Some of my most meaningful moments of public worship have been in settings where I did not speak the language. I have stood with a congregation in rural Zambia as they’ve clapped and moved and praised the Lord in Bemba, a language that is utterly unknown to me. I’ve sat with a congregation in the…

    A Celebration of Friendship

    I may not be going too far out on a limb when I suggest that you have probably not heard the name Anna Laetitia Barbauld. For various reasons she has been largely forgotten by history, and this despite achieving a significant level of fame in the eighteenth century. Though at one time she was a…
