Half the Sky

Hello blogosphere!  Nice to see you again.  It's been a while. 

I've been reading a book called Half the Sky.  It's about oppression of women in developing countries.  More specifically it's about ways of helping these women.  It's really an eye opener.  Our trip to Uganda this summer left me wanting to serve in God's kingdom, and this book just reinforces that desire.

It's one of those books that works its way in to who you are, to how you see things.  Read it.  Now!

PS: On a lighter note, I've also been at Subway.  Apparently the bigwigs in the sandwich game have been reading my blog.  I do believe you'll remember that sub bags were MY idea.  And lo and behold, look what Subway has rolled out.  You're welcome, Subway!  In return for my intellectual property, I would like for your sandwich artists to reliably honor my request for 'light lite mayonaise'.  


  1. Ok, I'd like a portion of the proceeds as well, because it was MY bag that gave YOU the idea for the sub bag. Seriously. Cut me in, here.

    Also, thank you for spelling 'lo and behold' properly. Let's start a movement where we use that phrase more often in the blogosphere so people can finally get the idea of how to spell it.

  2. Maybe you can become the new Jared at Subway. That guy is milking his 15 minutes for all he can get, and anyways, you are way cooler than him.

  3. Leslie, I'm one step ahead of you. I used 'lo and behold' in honor of your fb post. I think you should add it to the first grade sight word list. Just so the next generation doesn't suffer like we have.

    Meredith, I'm afraid I could never be the face of a company that can't make up it's mind about $5 footlongs. All day? After 5? Gotta buy more than one now? Annoying!
