Finished Reading | Preach to Yourself by Hayley E. Morgan

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 [...]

Finished Reading | Less than Perfect a devotional study by Ann Spangler

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'.  We can get pretty caught up in the idea that God [...]

Finished Reading: A Light so Lovely – the spiritual legacy of Madeleine L’Engle by Sarah Arthur

Confession time, as an avid reader I have not read The Time Quintet. Which includes L'Engle's most popular book, A Wrinkle in Time. I have read her nonfiction work Walking on Water, which I reviewed a while back. (I chuckle that the only book I've read by this famous fiction author is a piece of [...]

Faith | Finished Reading: Inspired- Slaying Giants, Walking on Water, and Loving the Bible Again by Rachel Held Evans

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 [...]

Reading: Always Enough, Never Too Much Devotional by Jess Connolly and Hayley Morgan

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 [...]

Faith | Finished Reading: Anabaptist Essentials by Palmer Becker

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 [...]

Finished Reading: The Masterpiece by Francine Rivers

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. While I love the way Rivers can draw a reader in through character development, but this [...]

Finished Reading: Fire on the Track by Roseanne Montillo

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. Fire on the Track recalls the story of Elizabeth 'Betty' Robinson, the first woman to win a gold metal in the Women's Track [...]

Finished Reading: A Simplified Life by Emily Ley

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. So, all that [...]
