The Good-for-My-Soul Work of “Tidying Up”

What do you do when the winter winds howl and outside temperatures hover WAY below zero?







We decided to watch a few episodes of the Netflix  sensation Tidying Up. 





Something about this new show intrigued me.  Maybe I hoped for some insight into my husband. Many of you know that my husband comes by “tidying” naturally. I do think it comes standard with the Norwegian gene pool. I, however, do NOT co...

“Storm Sister--a friend who sticks close when storms hit her friend's life.”
Afton Rorvik, Storm Sisters: Friends Though All Seasons

“When storms come, we naturally want to run. What might happen in your friendship if you learned instead to stay put when storm hit?”
Afton Rorvik, Storm Sisters: Friends Though All Seasons

“Dying and living, weeping and laughing--all parts of our existence here on earth. What would happen in your friendships if together you embraced the hard parts of life and did not fear weeping together?”
Afton Rorvik

“When we invite friends for a meal, we do much more than offer them food for their bodies. We offer friendship, fellowship, good conversation, intimacy, and closeness. When we say, 'Help yourself… take some more… don’t be shy… have another glass…' we offer our guests not only our food and drink but also ourselves. A spiritual bond grows, and we become food and drink for one another.”
Henri J.M. Nouwen

“God never meant us to be purely spiritual creatures. That is why He uses material things like conversations, shared meals and trips, hugs, small kindnesses, and gifts between friends to enrich the new life He’s given us. We may think this rather crude and unspiritual. God does not: He invented human relationships. He likes friendship. He invented it.”
Wesley Hill

“I'd like to think that the work of God might be displayed through my introversion, and not in spite of it.”
Adam S. McHugh, Introverts in the Church: Finding Our Place in an Extroverted Culture

“We embrace all our humanity, realizing that the more we ignore or suppress certain emotions, the more we are controlled by them.”
Geri Scazzero, The Emotionally Healthy Woman: Eight Things You Have to Quit to Change Your Life

“When storms come, we naturally want to run. What might happen in your friendships if you learned instead to stay put when storms hit?”
