Wild and Free Book Review

Wow, it has really been such a long time since I have blogged.  Besides posting a few book reviews that is.  Is anyone even still here reading this?  I’ve been thinking about starting a brand new blog.  I started this one in 2005 when Peter and I were still in our first year of marriage […]

For the Love – Jen Hatmaker

I’ve been reading/following/loving Jen Hatmaker for quite a while now so obviously I jumped at the chance to read and review her new book “For the Love“.  And if any of you out there love Jen like I do, then this book is classic JH.  It’s humor, truth, wisdom and passion all wrapped up into […]

Books I’ve Been Reading Lately

I’ve been reading Sarah Bessey’s blog for quite a while now and am such a fan of the way she beautifully strings her words together to express the beautiful, the powerful, the messy.  But I admit, even I wasn’t sure what I would think of her book “Jesus Feminist” because lets face it, we all have an […]

Books I’ve Been Reading Lately

Becoming Myself – Stasi Eldredge I remember when everyone was talking about the book Captivating by Stasi and her husband, John, so even though I never read that one, I thought I’d better get a copy of this one.  This is a book about becoming our true selves through the love and restoration of God.  After […]

Restless – Jennie Allen – Book Review

This isn’t a book, you guys, this is a journey. I’m serious. Have you ever felt like there’s just one way to be a Christian? Have you ever wished you could really passionately serve God but you just don’t seem to fit into “the way things are done”? Do you feel like you were made […]

The 21-Day Sugar Detox – Book Review

As many of you know I have been on a health journey for the last while (since April 2012) and have been working at getting myself healthier in the kitchen and stronger in the gym (er, living room).  Mostly what I do is try to eat as clean as possible, and exercise regularly.  While I […]

Bread & Wine – Book Review

I’d heard of Shauna Niequist a few times but kind of thought to myself “do I have enough time in my life for another blogger/writer?”.  Sometimes it just seems like there are too many books to read, too many awesome blog posts, and my heart is already full of favourites — but I couldn’t say […]

Some Books I’ve Been Reading

I’ve been intentional about reading this summer because I’ve had a huge stack of books to review and even more that I’ve purchased that are just sitting on my shelf.  So today, I’m going to share with you from four that I’ve recently read that were given to me to review.     I haven’t […]

Desperate – Book Review

I have admired Sally Clarkson for a long time, having read both The Mission of Motherhood and The Ministry of Motherhood, as well as Educating the WholeHearted Child.  I’ve been reading her blog for some time and just find her to be such an encouraging, inspiring, and generally lovely woman, someone I really look up […]

Beyond Ordinary – Book Review

Guys, just go buy “Beyond Ordinary” already.  I was looking forward to getting this book to review from Tyndale and was even more excited when I read the foreword by Pete Wilson, but what really grabbed me was Justin and Trisha’s he-said-she-said style of sharing their story.  It totally felt like I was sitting down […]
