Taking a break this week from the heavier writing to highlight the music lover in me in hopes it resonates with the music lover in you.
From time to time, I want to share the things I have been getting a lot of lately. You may read them as recommendations. You may read them as random bullet points. Lately I have been... Listening to a lot of... Beautiful Eulogy (great hip hop + theology), old dirty blues music (always a special part of my heartbeat), DL Rossi (decent music + raw reflections on faith and church), United Pursuit Band (favorite worship right now)
Reading a lot of... textbooks (always always always), Untitled by Blaine Hogan (creativity and its process), Platform by Michael Hyatt (slowing building one), How to Develop a Powerful Prayer Life by Gregory Frizzell (easy read but hard to read)
Watching a lot of... SNL (because I'm the biggest fan), New Girl (the ONLY show that never piles up in our DVR), Modern Family (see New Girl's description)
Spending a lot of time... drinking coffee at Chocolate Fish, taking my girls on adventures, reading books and writing papers
Why not New York, right? I love Chicago for its rich history of blues music and comedy. I love the midwestern feel that serves as a subtle but strong background to the big city. I love legit Chicago-style deep dish pizza. I love a Chicago [hot]dog. I love the chill of the wind off of Lake Michigan in the dead of winter.
In ONE PARAGRAPH, why do you love your favorite American city?
