Monday Miscellany: Links to Brighten Your Week

Happy Monday, everyone! I know starting a new week can be hard, so whether you’re back to work or school today, I wish you all the best! I thought I would share some things I’ve been enjoying in the hopes of making your Monday a little better.

Tips for Choosing a College

Emily Wilson is a major role model for me. She is just THE BEST. And this video is practical, encouraging, and full of good advice. Finding a college that’s right for you can be nerve-racking, and Emily’s tips will help you think more intentionally about what you’re looking for in a school. If you’re starting to think about where you want to go to college (or if you’re avoiding thinking about it), you should definitely watch this!

Speaking of Emily Wilson…

Her book, Go Bravely, which she wrote for teen girls/young women, has been on my TBR list for a while now. I got some Barnes & Noble gift cards for Christmas (books are the best gift, am I right?), and I think Emily’s book and also this one recommended by Meg are going to make the cut.

CathLit2020: A Catholic Reading Challenge

This reading challenge was created by Haley at Carrots for Michaelmas. While I’ve never officially participated in the challenge, she has some great suggestions for Catholic literature (some of my favorites are on her list!) and I love that she included some more unusual categories like “Poetry by a Catholic” and “A Book About Beauty.” You can find Haley’s blog post with the full list of categories and suggested books here.

Sisters of Life

I was blessed enough to attend a retreat given by the Sisters last weekend and it was amazing. I’ve been fans of theirs for a while, and I’m so glad I got the opportunity to meet them in person. Their mission to uphold the dignity of ALL life is so, so needed right now. You can learn more about the Sisters and their unique mission here. The Litany of Trust, written by Sr. Faustina Maria Pia, SV, is one of my very favorite prayers.
