Even If Not, by Kaitlyn E. Bouchillon, is an incredible tale of how God uses our whole lives for His glory, even those seasons we never imagined, and perhaps never even wanted. Kaitlyn weaves together stories from her own life into a beautiful, encouraging, uplifting book that digs deep and plants hope. I have been… Continue reading Even If Not {Review}

Brave Enough {Review}

I recently finished Brave Enough by Nicole Unice, and I found this book to be remarkably encouraging, delightfully funny, and highly engaging. Directed towards women, it addresses the areas women tend to live in fear, showing how to cast aside fear and take hold of the bravery God created us to embrace. And honestly? Unice… Continue reading Brave Enough {Review}

Season of Quiet {Five Minute Friday}

It’s not Friday, and it’s nearly a week late, but after a long hiatus, I’m back to join in with the Five Minute Friday crew, where we gather each week to write for just five minutes on a common theme. And this week (actually, last week) is “quiet”. Check out Kate’s blog for the full… Continue reading Season of Quiet {Five Minute Friday}

Choose Joy {Review}

Joy can be an elusive thing in this world. Can I get an amen? It’s something fleeting, too often, dashing into our life and our again. And far too often, finding joy feels like a battle. One that’s hard-fought and ever-present. But fully worth it. I recently read the book Choose Joy: Finding Hope and… Continue reading Choose Joy {Review}

Let My Heart Dwell {Five Minute Friday}

It’s time clean this dusty space, knocking down the cobwebs and clearing out the dust, replacing them with words once again. It’s been nearly a month since I wrote anything here (though you wouldn’t know, because I scheduled posts through the end of October while I was in Cambodia). I’ve been quiet since I boarded… Continue reading Let My Heart Dwell {Five Minute Friday}

Staying is the New Going {and an Announcement}

I recently finished Staying is the New Going by Alan Briggs, and my initial gut response is “wow”. This book was nothing like what I expected, and more encouraging that I ever imagined. I started reading it, thinking it would be book about focusing on local missions, rather than big international trips. And I think… Continue reading Staying is the New Going {and an Announcement}
