The First Sunday in Advent is Hope. The hope of light in darkness, of joy in sorrow, of life in death, of a Savior to take away the sins of the world.
ALMIGHTY God, give us grace that we may cast away the works of darkness, and put upon us the armour of light, now in the time of this mortal life, in which thy Son Jesus Christ came to visit us in great humility; that in the last day, when he shall come again in his glorious majesty to judge both the quick and dead, we may rise to the life immortal, through him who liveth and reigneth with thee and the Holy Ghost, now and ever. Amen. – Book of Common Prayer
Several months ago, I discovered that I was reading articles from a new (to me) blog: Modern Mrs. Darcy (MMD). First of all, those of us who are Jane Austen fans can’t possibly resist the name, Modern Mrs. Darcy! Add to that, Anne, the owner of MMD, is an engaging writer who covers so many topics I’m interested in. From book reviews to articles about Myers-Briggs personality tests** to organizing life the Kondo way to introducing services like ePantry, there is always something of interest. Add to that, a weekly round up of favorite links and lists and lists of good books to read, and I was hooked.
While I read some blogs for moral or theological edification and others to help me organize or learn things I need to know for work, school, or my home, there are a few blogs I read just for the sheer fun of it. MMD is one of my fun blogs. I hope you all enjoy it, too.
Here are just a few articles to get you started:
Books worth binge reading
3 time management rules I wish I’d learned 10 years ago

Grown-ups shouldn’t finish books they’re not enjoying
**I adore taking Myers-Briggs personality tests. Even though I rarely deviate from the expected result, I still can’t resist taking it again, just in case I’ve changed, and then reading all of the various personality quirks, perfect jobs, and people like me articles that go along with my personality type. It’s fun. Give it a try.
