Introducing Friday Findings

Frieday Findings on Modern RejectUsually Fridays here on MR are called Favorite Things, where I list out some of the stuff I love from nerdiness to splurges, and even some of my guilty pleasures.

And after over a year of writing about my Favorite Things, it turns out that while I like a lot of things, I don’t like enough to blog about it for 14+ months. Sooooo, I’ve got a new bag of tricks for Fridays which I am calling (in case you didn’t read the title of this post for some reason) Friday Findings.

Now, I admit it sounds eerily similar to Favorite Things, but here’s the difference: Instead of any one topic (i.e. kids, road trips, etc) I will be sharing with you anything that caught my eye that week–whether it be a blog post, article, song, food item, pin, book, quote, or nonsensical item that I may presently be lusting. Anything is up for grabs. Now doesn’t that sound snazzy?

This also means that I need your help. Yes, you. If you happen to read a post, spot an article, or chow on some amazing grub (I like food okay? What can I say?) please send it my way. I’m always interested in discovering new things worth sharing and that’s exactly what Friday Findings will be all about. You will, of course, score the credit for your finding. Finders keepers, as they say.

And now, the 1st ever edition of Friday Findings…

Ally Spotts- Do you know this awesome chick? She is a blogger, who writes primarily for 20 somethings and covers everything from faith to dating. She happens to rock my socks off. A few weeks ago, I wrote a post called Confessions of a 20 Something: I Didn’t Wait til Marriage, which was a series hosted by Ally. Well, she wrote an article about the series on Relevant Magazine and linked to myself and the other bloggers, as well. It’s a great article. Check it out.

A resume to win you the job– Many people are looking for jobs these days and the job market is flooded with applicants. I happen to love typography and infographics so when I stumbled upon this post on an infographic resume over at Jason Boyett’s blog I was geeked out. This thing is sleek, cool, and original. It actually reminds me of my husband’s resume…and mine, as well.

Cool Christian art. Finally. It used to be that everytime I searched for cool Christian art–a verse to perhaps having hanging in my house–I would only find what can be described as the cheesiest, lamest, corniest renditions of artwork. Basically, it would always be Jesus in white flowing robes, with children and/or lambs at His feet with “The Lord is my shepherd..” written across the bottom in some hideous scrolling font.

But now, thanks to Etsy, Pinterest, and other online sources, there is now readily available super-cool Christian art. Hooray. I’m thinking of getting this chair piece for my house. I really dig it.What do you think? It’s available on this site.

Okay, so what has caught your eye this week? Any blog posts or articles? Any fancy, new-fangled product or design you are loving?

  1. OOH! I love the new idea for Friday Findings! I discovered Ally Spots this week too. She had a guest poster about What’s a Single Girl to Do with a Sex Drive and I thought it was very insightful.

    Anyhow, now that you asked for it, I’ll be sending Findings your way. (And they will probably be killer recipes!)

    1. Ally is great. I’m glad you discovered her. My husband and I will guest posting for her next Friday too!

      And I am so down for some great recipes. I love to cook and I love to pore over cookbooks. Send ’em my way friend!

    1. T Jay,
      These are ahhh-mazing. Thanks for sharing. I think I might lose a day just looking at them all. I’ve seen gettinbiblical before because I used to be on Tumblr, but wow. Cool stuff. Thanks again.

  2. Ally Spotts’ blog is awesome! Well she can thank you for getting her at least one subscriber! Gonna be cheatin’ on you so hard now Modern Reject–I kid, I kid. You’re still more awesome!

    I’ll let you know of anything interesting I come across!!


    This is a cookbook I found a few years ago and haven’t been able to put down since. It’s all of the best recipes for virtually any American food you can think of (tested by America’s Test Kitchen). The coolest part are the mini articles before each recipe that talk about what worked and what didn’t work for that particular dish and why. I have learned so much about cooking by cooking from that book!

    1. oooohhh, Ashleigh. You just described a cookbook I can easily become addicted to. I love reading about how recipes came together or were tweaked. Thanks for the recommendation! I’m excited!

  4. The only concern I have with this article is that it focuses only on the teachings of Jesus…..the words. Jesus did a lot more than just talk, he fed people, healed people, and sent the seventy out to do the same…and they came back rejoicing because of the healing that was accomplished. I think if we are going to focus on Jesus that we ahve to look at the possibility that he did more than just talk…He healed individuals and whole communities by bringing health, wholeness, balance, and holiness.

    1. I’m sorry, I’m not trying to be dense, but are you referring to this post? This post doesn’t talk about the teachings of Jesus, at all. I agree with what you wrote, I’m just confused as to whether or not you meant to be commenting on this particular post and not a different one.
