Necessary Book Reviews Part 1: So Much!

My nine month old daughter is now finally playing with a few of the many books that have been given to her. I was a little worried at her lack of interest back when she lacked the strength and muscle control to turn pages, but now, her Baby Touch and Feel Animals is one of her all time faves.

Year of Reading in Review

Year in review: books

I am my story’s main character and I want to claim my story as my own and strive to make it a good one! Here are some thoughts about how I’d love to do that: Continue reading

I don't want to waste your time, either

April Book: Jesus Through Middle Eastern Eyes

Even though it is technically May, I wanted to catch you all up on what I have been reading during the last month and my quick thoughts on it. I chose to read Jesus Through Middle Eastern Eyes by Kenneth Bailey because I understood that usually when I read the Bible, I feel like I’m seriously missing something… the Bible should be more significant and brilliant than I was finding it. Continue reading

I love you… tube!

Here are eight youtube videos that I just appreciate. Most of them are of things that I wish I could claim as either my own idea or my own involvement… but alas they are not. Yet I share them with you. Perhaps for fun, but perhaps for inspiration? Continue reading
