I’m a long time RHE fan, I’ll never forget reading Welcome to Monkey Town (renamed Faith Unraveled) nearly 5 years ago after moving to Colorado the first time in 2012. Every book of hers since then has made a lasting impression on my perspective and my faith walk, her personal journey and deep reflective way … More Faith | Finished Reading: Inspired- Slaying Giants, Walking on Water, and Loving the Bible Again by Rachel Held Evans
This is a tough subject. But one that has been pulling at my attention for a while no matter how many times, I try to ignore it. So, here we go.
I can’t title this post as Finished Reading, because honestly I’m not done and I’m perfectly ok with that. And you will be too. First, this fabulous devotion, Always Enough, Never Too Much, is a great extension of these author’s first book, Wild & Free. Which if you didn’t read that or my review, which you … More Reading: Always Enough, Never Too Much Devotional by Jess Connolly and Hayley Morgan

I’ve read my fair share of Francine Rivers books, I had all her books in college and read through them a few times. Her ability to create characters is amazing and one of my favorite things about her books.
I can openly and honestly admit it’s been a while since I’ve read through the gospels. The last time was in 2015 when I read through the whole bible. But I haven’t done a gospel book study in years, nonetheless really studied the book of Mark. My husband’s favorite gospel.
I keep telling myself I will stop reviewing bibles and yet I still manage to pick them. I love the bells and whistles of new bibles. I’ve always wanted a woman’s bible one centered on women and focused on God’s intention on the women from the bible.
I don’t write nearly enough personal or reflective posts anymore. Blogging over the last few years has turned into a bit of an advertising space for brands and products.
My 2017 word of the year is brave. For most of the year, I didn’t feel very brave. I felt very boring, very un-brave. But sometimes bravery isn’t in the big moments but the little one, like telling yourself to have a good positive day while battling depression, like taking a sick day to self … More Faith | 100 Days to Brave by Annie F Downs
