Irresistible Faith by Scott Sauls {Book Review}

In Irresistible Faith: Becoming the Kind of Christian the World Can't Resist, Scott Sauls doesn't tell us to go out and be more charming. He doesn't say to take the Bible less seriously. He doesn't say to be more or less of anything we already are. Instead this book walks us back through the basics … Continue reading Irresistible Faith by Scott Sauls {Book Review}

So we’re all different, now what? {Book Review}

------ I am pretty familiar with what I like and how I want things done. I have preferences about almost everything, even if I don't realize it because I think my way is obviously the 'normal' way. But we all do that. It's easy to assume we're thinking the same way when actually our unique … Continue reading So we’re all different, now what? {Book Review}

Books to Grow Your Empathy (Best of Recently)

My favorite books from the last couple months all fall into a similar sub-category. Maybe I made it up, but I feel like each of these books was a really interesting way to build understanding around big topics so that we can move forward with more nuance, grace, and empathy. Non-Fiction One: Unity in a … Continue reading Books to Grow Your Empathy (Best of Recently)

Heaps of Books! (Best of Recently)

I know I said I wouldn't be doing this every month, but what else am I going to do? Reading is a big part of my life and always has been. And somehow books are something I nearly always have head space to write about and share about. So here I am again linking up with Modern … Continue reading Heaps of Books! (Best of Recently)

INFJ books? What do you think? (Best of Recently)

Modern Mrs Darcy has a monthly linkup of books, but since I've not linked in a good 9 months... I'm going to not be too optimistic of linking up regularly and maybe instead just go for a once a season recap of bests :) I have somehow managed to read 30 books already this year! These … Continue reading INFJ books? What do you think? (Best of Recently)

Books I can’t forget from 2016

I have one last category of books that didn't quite make my top 4, but I still really felt strongly about for one reason or another and want to share with you. So.

My Favorite Fiction from 2016

Fiction: The Mysterious Benedict Society by Trenton Lee Stewart - Middle grade novel of excellent intrigue and espionage.

My Favorite Non-fiction from 2016

I read a lot this year. I had planned to read about 60 books again, but somehow managed to read 100. oops. I think it was related to being more intentional about being online less, having kind of a stressful year (so reading for escape more), and specifically going out to read more fiction. It … Continue reading My Favorite Non-fiction from 2016
