Linking Up

Happy Friday!!  I don’t have many links today, but I do have one piece of advice: Stop what you’re doing and go see “The Help.”  Now.

Last night, I, along with 300 other women, crowded our movie theater to see the long anticipated release.  Not since Sisterhood of the Traveling Pants 2 have I experienced a movie alongside so many women.  Together, with our mothers, sisters, daughters, besties, and the occasional male counterpart who was dragged along, we laughed, we cried, and left encouraged and challenged to step out, take risks, and use our voice.

I’m not always keen on book-to-movie adaptations, but, in my opinion, this was one of the best ones I’ve seen in a while.

Now for the link…I was beyond encouraged to read this article on author Kathryn Stockett’s perseverance.  Did you know she was rejected 60 times before finally landing an agent for The Help?  How’s that for not giving up?

Also, here’s a great post written by Proverbs 31’s Renee Swoope: Beat Up or Build Up?

Have a great weekend!!
