spring reads.

I'm slowly feeling like myself again, figuring out where reading fits into my new normal. I used to scoff at college students that said they didn't feel like reading for fun and now I understand. Some days it will be the exact medicine you need and some days you need to relax in different ways [...]

let’s dance, stand, and run!

Today Dance Stand Run launches into the world! *insert dancing emoji here* If you haven't heard of Jess Connolly, she is a sweet daughter of God, wife, Momma, author, speaker, and business woman. I first heard of her via Hannah Brencher's Instagram when HB got Jess' first book she coauthored, Wild and Free. I read [...]

what i read in march.

This month, I continue my average from February of four books in four weeks and add my 2017 stack to a total number of eleven books! I hope that as I reach one of the busiest seasons of my life (I see you coming, May!), I will only continue making reading good, long, sharpening books a [...]

what i read in february

This month puts my tally to seven books so far this year! I am passionate about each of these books on my shelf this month. The common threads, unintentionally, have been solitude, idolatry, technology addiction, pressing against lies, ministering with compassion. These books have made me wonder why people don't read and how in the world [...]

what i read in january.

I feel refreshed after a month of getting back into a reading routine and gaining momentum after a two month period of finishing not. one. single. book. In summary, I read 24 books in 2016 with an average of 2 books a month! I hope to kick that number in the butt in 2017, but am [...]

daring to live the broken & cruciform way

Let love break into you and mess with you and loosen you up and make you laugh and cry and give and hurt because this is the only way to live. Today is the release date of The Broken Way! Maybe you've seen my feeds fill up with hashtagTheBrokenWay over the past few weeks and [...]

what i read in september 

How IN THE WORLD is it October already? October is one of my favorite months in the whole year, and I am not taking it for granted. Before we wholeheartedly plunge into October, let's look back at the two books I finished this month. Spoiler alert: I highly esteem and recommend them both. One takes [...]

what i read in august.

Just like clockwork, my reading game is being upped as I settle into my fall schedule! This month's titles are definitely diverse! One of these books I have had on my shelf for years (which is super embarrassing because it was the shortest, easiest read ever!) and one I spontaneously picked up at the library because [...]

what I read in July.

HOW IN THE WORLD IS JULY ALMOST OVER? Half of my heart is grieving that these are the last few weeks of summer, while the other half is quietly anticipating the comeback of skinny jeans and Grey's Anatomy. There is still much beauty to savor, and the beauty of autumn to anticipate. As far as reading goes [...]

what i read in june.

This month was all about packing light and letting go of all the right things, with two very different memoirs. 15. No Baggage: A Minimalist Tale of Love & Wandering by Clara Bensen  I demanded rainbows like Noah and manna like Moses. I wanted to feel eternity shooting up my spine. This travel memoir was [...]
