Teaching Children to be Readers

Being a parent is amazing and hard and always full of new moments.  But, this moment we are in right now is something I’ve waited for. “Mommy” then I get a little pat on my leg and I see my older toddler standing there in front of me with a book in his tiny hands. […]

Read This: Women of the Word (Jen Wilkin/Crossway)

Our days are so full! As a Mom of two toddlers – and very active boys at that – I know what full days are.  They are fun, encouraging, eventful, demanding, and days filled with laughter.  We are always on the go, exploring new parts of our city or heading out to hang out with […]

Read This: Christ in the Chaos (Kimm Crandall)

Sometimes it may take me a while to get to a book, but God knows why he had me pick it up at that moment.  I’ve had this book for a while, and just really picked it up in earnest this weekend. As you can see by this review – I’m done with it and […]

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 […]

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 […]

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 […]
