Forced to quit my reading streak {Quick Lit -January}

I finished a book a day the first 10 days of January it was so much fun and all I did was read. It perfectly coincided with the kids' well-timed post christmas season illness so we didn't even have to go anywhere expect to buy tissues and cough syrup. But than I got to day … Continue reading Forced to quit my reading streak {Quick Lit -January}

The Color of Life: A Journey Toward Love and Racial Justice by Cara Meredith is an invitation to think and learn about racial justice, but it's also a story of falling in love, becoming family, coming alive to history and justice issues, and seeking that justice-driven redemption story that is critical for all of our whole and full lives.

I had a numb spot on my thumb for weeks from crocheting with such intensity. But the animals turned out adorable and all the children who received one were immediately in love. So it was … Continue reading December Reads {QuickLit}

True You by Michelle DeRusha {Book Review}
