Our family LOVES books and no matter how old my kids get, I’m still going to break out all of the picture books and read to them. I am drawn to stories that spark imagination and have beautiful illustrations. Christmas books always seem to be on another level when it comes to those things. Every […]

Our Favorite Christmas Books

I zoomed through Jodi Mocabee’s new book this last week and Wow. We need more truth and encouragement like this when it comes to raising our family. And not just trudging through, but thriving while doing it! I gleaned so much from this, related a lot, and already practice a lot of her advice too. I […]

Lit List | The Whole & Healthy Family

I was skeptical of this one because I don’t typically jump on the bandwagon when it comes to books. But, it proved me wrong and kept my attention. I loved the story and time period it was set in. Kya’s character was so unique and I loved her grit for survival as well as compassion […]

It offered a Biblical perspective on taking ownership of your daily life and putting your identity in being a child of God. Not […]

Lit League

If there was ever a book that I needed for such a season as this one I’m in (other than the Bible, of course) it is what I’m holding. I don’t say this lightly but it truly changed my life and also took a lot of the thoughts and feelings I’ve been having for months, […]

Lit List | The Life You Long For

I started this book last fall and then life happened. I picked it back up last weekend and literally couldn’t put it down, finishing it Wednesday evening. This is a book everyone should read and went along perfect as I’m in the middle of my mental toughness challenge. I’ve actually connected with Sarah a couple […]
