Friday Favs: 80′s Bangs and More Good Mommy Links

Favorite Junior High Picture

For your viewing pleasure:

This is 7th grade, and these bangs required a blowdryer.

Oh. Yes. They. Did.

(Believe it or not, 8th grade’s bangs were higher!)

Favorite Links From the Week

  • A great post on servant motherhood.”It’s something you can’t explain–you do the opposite of what you feel like doing and you end up getting the desired end. It’s a paradox. If you read the Bible you’ll see this same idea when Jesus says, ‘If you want to be great, you must be a servant of all.’ (Mark 10:44)” via If You Want To Be Great by Amanda.
  • “Freedom comes in the resting. When I rest in the fact that my God completely reigns, people and circumstance no longer dictate my inner-being.” via who’s in control, a great post by Lara.
  • How To Decide Where Your Child Goes To School @ The Better Mom “The goal of this post is not to convince you that one option is better than another, but instead, to offer 25 questions to pray through as your family considers plans for next year or the years to come.” Thank you, Kara, for this incredibly refreshing and practical post!

    “2 good 2 be 4 gotten”
    Who doesn’t love junior high?
    But I should’ve let you borrow my crimping iron.
    Thanks for the sweet linky…

  2. Oh. My. Goodness. Those bangs bring back so many memories. Hilarious. (and…thanks for the mention.)

  3. Oh, my goodness, my daughter looks back at her Jr. High pictures and says, “why did you allow me to look like that.” I just laugh, as if I had any say. It was the “in” look.

    Thanks so much for stopping by, I have so enjoyed browsing your blog. By the way, I’m a PK and always felt very special because of that.

    Blessings to you!
