Sacred Ground, Sticky Floors: Book Review

I’m fresh from reading Jami Amerine’s book Sacred Ground, Sticky Floors, and I was worried this would happen. A sort of overflowing of words and writers’ block are hitting me all at once! I have to push through, because, after all, I want you to know about this book. Also, I agreed to review it. […] Read more…

Forgive Your Way to Freedom: Review + Giveaway

  I’ve been reading the book of Luke lately, and when I came to 17:1-10, I saw the passage in a whole new light. Jesus tells Peter to forgive a person as many times as needed, and Peter and the disciples are overwhelmed. Jesus encourages them by saying that they only need a small amount […] Read more…

February Book Review

For me, February was a month of fictional literary romance. And you can guess how I felt about that… It was a short month, but a great one for reading. Here’s what I finished this month. No spoilers! Dear Mr. Knightly Samantha Moore has always hidden behind the words of others—namely, her favorite characters in […] Read more…

January Book Review

I took a mini break from book reviews, and now I’m back! This month I finished two nonfiction books (though I read bits and pieces of some others.) The only thing these two books have in common is their overarching genre. I bet that you’d enjoy at least one of them, just because they are […] Read more…

My Favorite Books of the Year

I’ve been looking forward to this post ALL YEAR! Here are my top five picks of the books I read over the year. It was so hard to choose. And by so hard, I mean almost paralyzing. I finished a total of 32 books in 2017, and there were so many five-star choices for me! […] Read more…

October Book Review

Another month has gone by, and that means it’s time for my monthly book review (no spoilers)! October was a wonderful month, which is why I only finished two books. I had a bit of a problem deciding on a book, and would read a few lines before changing my mind…between that and having a […] Read more…

September Book Review

Another month has gone by, and that means it’s time for my monthly book review (no spoilers)! I finished four books in September, including a nice even mix of fiction and nonfiction.

August Book Review

Another month has gone by, and that means it’s time for my monthly book review (no spoilers)! I finished three books this month–one non-fiction and two fiction. They were all great!

July Book Review

Another month has gone by, and that means it’s time for my monthly book review (no spoilers)! This month was a first since I started this blog–I read only fiction. Are you as shocked as I am??

June Book Review

Another month has gone by, and that means it’s time for my monthly book review (no spoilers)! This is quickly becoming one of my favorite posts of the month…I especially love how this fuels me to read a little something when I can.

May Book Review

Another month has gone by, and that means it’s time for my monthly book review (no spoilers)! This group is all faith-based nonfiction, which some of you will love and others…not so much. But even if you don’t read nonfiction regularly, choose at least one of these and give it a chance. They are each […] Read more…

The Best Baby Name Book for You

One thing you may not know about me—my side gig is working on a baby name website. I’ve adored names since I was a kid, and turned my obsession into a blog, then a job, and even a book, over the past 10 years. I’ll always be a bit name obsessed, even though I’ve broadened my […] Read more…

April Book Review

It’s time for another monthly book review! Here’s what I finished reading in April. They are a best-selling, wonderful group. I find it ironic that just as I decided to read some “lighter choices” I found myself reading books that were not light at all. I know that all three of these are very popular and […] Read more…
