The Power of Self-Compassion by Laurie Cameron (A Book Review)

I've been on a self-compassion kick lately. It started a few month ago when I happened to stumble across a workbook at a bookstore. The workbook was called, "The Mindful Self-Compassion Workbook" by Kristin Neff, PhD & Christopher Germer, PhD. The workbook introduced me to a whole new way of speaking to myself and understanding … Continue reading The Power of Self-Compassion by Laurie Cameron (A Book Review)

Fierce By Alice Connor

Fierce by Alice Connor was the May read for my facebook group, "Faith, Coffee, and Books". Honestly? I kind of dreaded starting this one. It took me a long time to get back into reading after all of the pandemic and lockdown stuff happened. I'm still working my way through February and March's reads. In my … Continue reading Fierce By Alice Connor

A Good Marriage by Kimberly McCrieght

This book was chosen for me by the lady who runs the Book of the Month Club I am in. Each month she chooses a thriller for us that we can either buy or opt-out of. I hadn't actually heard of this one, but the synopsis made it look interesting. So I said, "I'm in!" … Continue reading A Good Marriage by Kimberly McCrieght

October Reads

This one is much later than I planned. Life happened, and it got delayed. I'm rethinking my monthly posts on this subject. I feel like I come across so much good content in a month: books, articles, podcasts, even music that I would love to expand how I catalogue everything that has spoken to me. … Continue reading October Reads

August Reads

I am back to reading more than just novels in August. I am learning more about women and their role in culture, the Bible, and even in history. And I am learning some fascinating things. Women are amazing and powerful creatures that society needs to stop underestimating. We are capable of so much, even in … Continue reading August Reads

Eshet Chayil

I began to write this poem after watching the funeral of Rachel Held Evans. I listened to her friends and family describe her as a woman who always asked the hard questions, always loved, always gave of herself when she could. I couldn't stop thinking to myself, "They are talking about a woman who was … Continue reading Eshet Chayil

Another month has gone by, and more books have been poured into my brain. There were several hits, several mehs. And I'm now 7 books closer to hitting my goal for the year.

April Reads

I am finally, it seems, getting the hang of this book reading challenge that I partake in every year. I have a goal of reading 60 books by the end of the year, and am currently at 23/60. So I thought that perhaps I should start talking about all of these books. Because: I have … Continue reading April Reads
