Read This: Bread & Wine (Shauna Niequist)

I’ve always been told if you want to learn how to write…then read authors you want to write like.  For that to be true in my life: I need to read Elyse Fitzpatrick and Shauna Niequist. So, I supposed the same is true if you want to photograph, cook, design, create, etc…be inspired by people […]

Link Love for your Weekend

    I’m very excited that the NCAA is back in full swing.  I am definitely a Gator girl even though I’ve lived in 3 different football/basketball states since: NC (I love the Tarheels though), KY (only good thing about Louisville and UK was UofL’s head coach was Charlie Strong, but even he got smart […]

Why So Slow?

You may be wondering why my blogging has dropped off to almost nothing the past 2 months.  Well, let me give a life update: 1.  First, the biggest, we moved.  We now reside in Marietta, GA about 20 minutes from downtown Atlanta.  I’m loving learning this new area, but don’t love the traffic. 2.  The […]

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 […]

Read This: The Bonhoeffer Reader

Bonhoeffer: one of my favorite Christian authors on the Christian life – and so much more.  I was introduced to his writings in college when I read the Cost of Discipleship, one of the books that has continued to shape who I am as a believer.  His birthday was last week so I thought it […]

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 […]
