In case you didn’t know it, I love (LOVE) nonfiction. I find reality so interesting and not to mention women’s fight for equality primarily during the early years of the 20th Century.
Last year for Christmas my sister bought me Grace not Perfection from Emily Ley, designer & creator of The Simplified Planner. I absolutely loved Grace not Perfection and may have read it in like 3 days, I also bought myself a Simplified Planner for my birthday this year and it’s my favorite.
I’m one of those people that likes to write all up in their books when she reads something that resonates with her. But my dear husband can’t stand this, so I resort to a book ‘notebook’ where I write out all the things I love and so forth. I could have rewritten entire paragraphs if … More Finished Reading: Braving the Wilderness by Brené Brown
If you enjoy grammar, collective terms, wildlife, and watercolor images then this little gem is for you! Matt Sewell’s book, A Charm of Goldfinches and other wild gatherings is a beautiful collection of animals, birds, and wildlife from all walks of life around the world in the air and the sea.

I’m a smart girl but theology, philosophy, etc aren’t my wheelhouse and I admit that. But I also don’t want to simply … More Finished Reading: Sinners in the hands of a Loving God by Brian Zahnd
Many moons ago, when I’d just moved to Modesto I was meeting with my friend Stacie (still new friends) and she mentioned she’d seen this book Make it Happen like ALL. OVER. SOCIAL MEDIA. I saw it was available from Book Look Bloggers and snatched a copy for review. That book was the beginning of … More Finished Reading: Cultivate by Lara Casey
