Breaking Busy: Book Review

I had the pleasure of reading Breaking Busy this past week over Spring Break. This is a book to read! Alli Worthington is a great writer and I love her candor and straightforward nature. She is approachable through her writing and the book really reached me as an woman, mom, and Christ follower who is […]

Not By Sight: Book Review

It took me longer to read this one, but not because the book itself was not well written or intriguing. As the Summer (of reading) has progressed I found myself neck deep in books and for this one I just couldn’t justify the “pleasure reading” as often with two little ones running around.     […]

A Book Review that Matters: Through A Man’s Eyes

This books is a must read – for ALL women!   Pornography, cleavage, curves, click bait…  “What role do I play?” “Why worry about it?” “It’s all just so awkward.” “It’s not my responsibility….” “It isn’t my problem.” “It doesn’t affect me/us.” WRONG! How wrong I was. I’ve had those thoughts, all of them at […]

“Unstoppable” Inspiration

This video and the book, the story, is SO inspiring. I know that many people with disabilities don’t seek attention in this area, don’t seek or try to be inspiring, and often just say “I’m busy being me.” That’s what I find as the most inspirational. I’ve been really encouraged by this Oscar Wilde quote […]

I recently joined a group called “Blogging for Books and my first review is of Katie Ganshert‘s story “Wildflowers from Winter.” I’ll start by saying that recently I have had a challenging time finishing a book.
