Finds for Fridays: March 16

  Finds for Fridays is my way of sharing some of the wonderful blogs posts I read each week. I am currently following close to 100 blogs and at least scan them as much as I can. Each week, I'll note and "set aside" some posts that especially speak to me for whatever reason. And each Friday that I am able, I'll share them with you. I hope you'll stop by and read the posts, and maybe even follow the blogs if you aren't already. A win-win, right?

And here they are!

When it Comes to Getting an Agent... By Wendy Lawton at ACFW Blog (about tips to getting an agent)

How I Learned to Stop Wasting What I Love by Kristen Schiffmann at Exemplify Ministries (about treasuring what you have)

Lucky Kim by Billy Coffey at What I Learned Today (about what we're training our kids for)

The "Why" Factor by Mary Vee at The Writers Alley (about questions to ask about your plot)

I need to say that ALL FOUR of these posts completely blew me away. I wouldn't miss a single one - and I'm sure I'll be back to them later. Don't miss these!

Have a great weekend!
