I am not a foodie. I do love to eat but I don’t make amazing yummy food for the eye and for the stomach. I do on occasion read cookbooks, weird I know but it’s oddly satisfying. Try it some time.
Although I am trying to incorporate more fiction into my reading repertoire this month is a lot of non-fiction memoirs that make my heart happy.
I love my journaling bible at home, but it’s a little too precious for me to carry and bring to church. I’ve tried a few over bibles, but they are either too big or don’t have extra room for writing in so I can’t take notes. I was excited to get this beautiful NIV lay … More Faith | Review of the NIV Journal the Word Bible for Women

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 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.
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.
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
