A Forest, a Flood, and an Unlikely Star: A Book Review

I recently received a copy of A Forest, a Flood and an Unlikely Star, a YA novel written by J.A. Myhre. The premise was a compelling one– it’s a story about Kusimma, a 13-year-old boy who lives in the tiny, fictional town of Rwendigo in the center of Africa. This young boy has lost his…

Are You a Woman Overwhelmed by Life? Check out This Book Review!

        What a title, huh?!          Wow, that’s a book for me if I’ve ever seen one, I thought.         Overwhelmed? Messes? Finding God in the middle? Yup. Yup. Yup. Sounds like my life.        But, I wish it weren’t that way. I wish…

Book Review: Stepping on Cheerios

“I had expected ordinary, and I got extraordinary. Isn’t that just like God? You may not know what’s coming in life, but it wouldn’t be any fun if you did. Plus, you might refuse to participate because what if you got hurt or couldn’t control most of life, which you can’t.”  (quote from: Stepping on…

Making Marriage Beautiful: A Book Review

The title of Chapter 1 (posed as a question) in Dorothy Littell Greco’s new book, Making Marriage Beautiful, says it all: Marriage Will Change You: What Do you Want That Change to Look Like?    This is a convicting question, and I’m not sure that the answer is immediately clear for many of us. Of…

Control Girl: A Book Review and Giveaway!

Controlling? Me? No…definitely not! Of all the words I might use to describe myself at times (sensitive, anxious, sometimes impatient) “controlling” would not be a word that fell into the list. Most of the time, anyways. However, after recently reading Control Girl, by Shannon Popkin my eyes have been open to the many subtle, and…

Book Review: Waiting for Wonder

  What if, in this waiting, God is calling us to more? This is the question at the heart of Marlo Schalesky’s new book, Waiting for Wonder: Learning to Live on God’s Timeline.  I confess, when I first read the title I wasn’t sure I  wanted to delve into the topic of waiting. Waiting is…

Pray A to Z: A Book Review

Do you ever struggle to know how to pray? How to go deeper or make things feel fresher? How to connect with God in a more personal way that doesn’t feel rote or repetitive, small or self-focused? I know I do. I pray daily. I pray throughout the day. Many days ‘pray without ceasing’ feels…

The Clutter Free Experiment

Hi, my name is Lisa, and I have a clutter problem. There. I said it. Only, I would like to re-phrase that statement if ever so slightly. We, as a family, have a clutter problem. That’s right. It’s not all my stuff. I confess, I have a lot of stuff. I keep books I don’t…
