Holy in the Moment, by Ginger Harrington is a book that I'm excited to tell you about- not only because Ginger is a beautiful writer, someone I've followed and been encouraged by for years, but because the message of her book is one that is simple, true and necessary for everyone who wants to live a life of faith for God.Read More
In my early 20’s I met Jeanne Garison. Jeanne was wise, gracious, funny, and for some reason, loved me. She showed it by pouring her wisdom into me, her time into my time, her life into my life. Living life with Jeanne alongside made all the difference.Read More
It’s a feeling I know well….wanderlust. This is strange because I can also be a homebody, a woman who craves routine and needs quiet solitude on a frequent basis.
"Things like wall colors and candles mattered to me more than I had guessed, and it felt freeing to admit it. I wanted to sink into the unpredictability of a cross-cultural life, yes, but I also wanted a bona fide home. This was a season of refinement, of acknowledging there were multiple sides to me that were equally true. I was infected with an incurable sense of wanderlust, but I was also a homebody.
I matured into adulthood when I acknowledged this truth." -Tsh Oxenreider
Every January, it seems that there’s an abundance of recommended reading lists that populate the blogosphere. “Tis the season. I love reading these lists.
I used to read book lists while trying to file away a few ideas in my memory. Sadly, I probably missed out on quite a few great books this way. My memory isn’t the most reliable filing system. Things get lost in there.Read More
I have four new books to tell you about today! One of the joys of writing a blog is that, sometimes, I get to read books before they're officially published. I was busy this summer reading advance copies of several books, written by some of my favorite faith bloggers. Finally, I get to share them with you! The fact that these books are all written by faith bloggers makes me feel proud, particularly because they're all so great!Read More
Do you love to read? I sure do. I don't have as much time as I'd like to have for reading- so I'm picky about the books that I choose. I love a great novel that makes me think, something I can get lost in, and I enjoy a light beach read, when the time is right. But most often, the books I gravitate towards are the ones that can teach me something (and get straight to the point), books that make good use limited precious time.
The following list of books that I've compiled were chosen with three criteria:
- I've read them (and wholeheartedly recommend them)
- They encouraged me in my Christian faith (and I believe they'll encourage you)
- They offer solid, no-nonsense, Biblical teaching in a compelling manner.
As parents, our children have our hearts- no question about it. Often times, it feels like our hearts are walking around outside our bodies. There aren’t adequate words for how deep this love is. We want the best for them and quite naturally, we want their hearts, too.Read More
I can’t say that I’m fearless (yet) but I do, more than anything, want to make an impact for the gospel. So I was intrigued by the title, Fearless Impact, a new course taught by my friend Alison. I want my life to be lived for Jesus- and I know that fear is an issue that can hold me back when I’m not fully trusting in Jesus.Read More
Raising Godly Children: Children Who Courageously Follow Their Lord, is a new book by my friend, Aimee Imbeau (A Work of Grace), that I have the honor of sharing with you today. It’s a Christian parenting book that takes a look at marriage, sibling relationships, parent-child relationships, how to effectively disciple children.Read More
