Read This: Treasuring Christ When Your Hands Are Full

If you are a mom – take some of your spare time (ha! spare time – what is that?) and read this book.  I’ll be sending a link for the official review I did for another site, but just wanted to post this quote.

W&BT: Found in Him (finale)

This is going down as a very engaging, life-changing book.  It is that good.  I’ve always loved the grace impetus that Elyse Fitzpatrick has in her writing – and this one is no different. Here are my thoughts on the last two chapters. One of the most hope-full sentences in the entire book is found […]

Read This: White Jacket Required

One of my favorite genres of books is biographical.  Here’s why: 1.  It makes me know I’m not alone. 2.  It helps you know other people. 3.  It spurs you on to do things bigger than yourself. 4.  It encourages you in the journey. I’ve been reading Eat Live Run for about 6 years now.  […]

W&BT: Found in Him

I think I love this book more and more – the further I get in it. Thank you Elyse! “The glorious incarnation that we’ve been considering means that we will never be alone, never separated from God.” (155)  This is such amazing truth.  When our sin separates us from others: family, friends, spouses – know […]

W&BT: Found in Him Chapter 5

I love small, simple reminders and this week I have definitely found them in Chapter 5 of Found in Him.  Life is at times completely overwhelming.  I don’t mean the big picture life – I mean the every day, every moment, will my husband ever get home, when will nap time come, can I please […]

W&BT Found in Him: Chapter 4

When you see the word “sinner” do you readily consider yourself among those who sin? Do you consider yourself a sinner? Not “I’m a sinner and Christ died for me – a theological statement”. But, “I’m a sinner and Christ died for me – position of the heart and truth statement”. When I first read the […]

Here we go again, ladies! I’m excited for those of you joining me in on a journey to read and discuss/study through Elyse Fitzpatrick’s new book, Found in Him, with me.

New Series: Kids r Readers 2

    It is no secret that I love books, writing, and reading. Most books I read are biographical or non-fiction, with the occasional classic or fiction. Being a Mom now of 2 boys (14m and 1m) I want to also instill in them a love for books and all things adventure, reading, characters, etc. […]
