Finds for Fridays: September 21

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 I 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?

What Kind of a God Does That? by Lori Stanley Roeleveld at Deeper with Jesus in Rhode Island (about our incredibly creative Creator)

Nonviewpoint Character Scenes by Cara Lynn James at Seekerville (about writing a scene about a non-viewpoint character. VERY helpful to me!)

An interesting mixture this week, I think - every one of them worth reading. Hope you get the chance! Thanks for stopping by.
