Made For This: Workbook Review

“She had me at hello.” If ever that phrase was pertinent it’s now, in reference to Jennie Allen’s new book Made For This: 40 Days to Living Your Purpose. From the very introduction, an anecdote about Sarah, to the beautiful layout and workbook format I found this book drawing me in. This would be a wonderful […]

You Are Free: Book Review

While I cannot say You Are Free by Rebekah Lyons is one of a kind I can say that it’s message is SO MUCH more than its 231 pages. I believe this book is part of a movement.
