Watched Vs Seen

I remember a song that we sang in Bible School, "Oh be careful little eyes what you see....For the Father up above is looking down below." We didn't sing it often, but it was enough to give me spiritual paranoia. God is watching. All. The. Time. When I know I'm being watched, the walls go… Continue reading Watched Vs Seen

TBR lists and why I’m taking a break.

For those of you who may not recognize the acronym, TBR stands for To Be Read. It means the list of books you plan to read in a given time period, usually a month but it could be a year or even a season. I haven't really done a TBR in a while on this… Continue reading TBR lists and why I’m taking a break.

An Ecclesiastes Woman

I think most of us are familiar with the Proverbs 31 woman, that quite unattainable checklist of things every woman has to live up to. Early to rise, works late into the night, successful, wise, put together, children and husband love her, the community honors her. I mean, we probably add a few more descriptors… Continue reading An Ecclesiastes Woman

Seasonal Rhythms

Most of my life, I've tried to set up time-based schedules to live by. It's how our world really works, by the hours and minutes of a clock. But it never seemed to work well for my own life. I would fill up every hour with some activity. I would even include rest time or… Continue reading Seasonal Rhythms

Walk For The Cure

I spent the summer of my freshman year of high school taking care of my great grandmother who had dementia. We didn't live near each other growing up, so by the time I was taking care of her, she really didn't know who I was. Still, she was sweet, loved to take walks and sing… Continue reading Walk For The Cure

Tunnel of Bones: A Review

While I don't normally read middle-grade, I know I've liked everything written by her, so I will probably read anything written by her (I… Continue reading Tunnel of Bones: A Review

Why Is This Still Happening?

I did a series on my blog called Continuing the Conversation about Pregnancy and Infant Loss. As I would research articles online about recent conversations on this topic, I started noticing a trend. A lot of these posts online would start out with "We don't talk about (miscarriage, infertility, etc) very much." Even though 1… Continue reading Why Is This Still Happening?

My 5 Star Summer Reads

I read about 18 books this summer. I didn't want to put all of the reviews on my blog because that would be a bit of an overkill. Plus, I have a September TBR list that will surely take up the normal review spots on my blog. But! I did read a few amazing books… Continue reading My 5 Star Summer Reads
