I am guilty of not talking politics with those that disagree with my perspective. Mostly because my opinion on government and politics differs wildly from the people I hold most dear, my family. I admit to blocking and unfollowing A LOT of people since the election, and if we are being honest since before the … More Finished Reading: I Think You’re Wrong (But I’m Listening) a guide to grace-filled political conversations
Shannan’s book The Ministry of Ordinary Places shines a light on the unglamorous ministry of living life as a Christian where you are. You don’t need to go to Kenya or Nepal, Chile, or Ukraine to make a difference for God’s kingdom. That work, your work could very well be right in front of you. … More Finished Reading: The Ministry of Ordinary Places by Shannan Martin
Remember Wild & Free? When reading Wild & Free I felt empowered to my core, I read it with energy and gusto. It made me active and actively changed me. Preach to Yourself, is not quite the same. While Wild & Free felt youthful and energetic, Preach to Yourself is more like sitting down and … More Finished Reading | Preach to Yourself by Hayley E. Morgan
I don’t typically, or haven’t been reviewing Devotional Study books in quite a while. But this one by Ann Spangler called out to me. Less than Perfect is about the ‘broken men & women of the Bible and What we can learn from them’.

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
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
First of all, I’ve been reading this since the end of February and although a small book it’s packed full of information that I probably didn’t grasp all of. A little back history, Travis and I began attending a Mennonite church when we first arrived in COS in 2012. After moving to California we joined … More Faith | Finished Reading: Anabaptist Essentials by Palmer Becker
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.
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.
