FAITH

  • Sally Clarkson :: My mom is the best. She taught me everything I know. [sallyclarkson.com] :: Sarah

IMAGINATION

  • Malcolm Guite :: One of my all-round favorite writers and poets, Malcolm Guite’s blog is a rich resource, stocked with his sonnets, his contemplations on literature, and a rich array of podcasts, music, and books. His Faith, Hope, and Poetry is one of my touchstone books, a work that has deeply influenced my view of the role of imagination in faith. [malcolmguite.com] :: Sarah

READING

  • Cultivating the Good, the True, and the Beautiful :: A space rich in beauty, carefully crafted and filled to offer readers a feast of inspiration. My dear friend Lancia has created a series of truly remarkable interviews with poets, writers, artists, and dancers, exploring how they use their art to cultivate and pursue the true, the beautiful, and the good. Lancia’s own posts are a gift of strength and beauty as well, words that often affect me as the albatross affected Lucy in The Voyage of the Dawn Treader with its whisper of, “courage, dear heart!” [lanciaesmith.com] :: Sarah

With contemplative posts for parents and plenty of content for kids, with stories, art, poems, and essays, this is a grand resource for imaginative families. [storywarren.com] :: Sarah
  • The Rabbit Room :: Named after the famous room in the Oxford pub where the Inklings once met to share new chapters and discuss their books, this website is a gathering place where modern-day Inklings meet to discuss great stories, new music, and the wondrous workings of the imagination in its dance with faith. A place beloved to me for its beauty and kind-hearted community. [rabbitroom.com] :: Sarah
