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 loved reading … Continue reading The Color of Life by Cara Meredith {Review}

December Reads {QuickLit}

I spent most of December madly crocheting stuffed animals and then recovering from said madness. I wouldn't necessarily recommend it. 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}

A holiday bookish pickle {Quick Lit – Nov 2018}

I got into a little bit of a pickle on Thanksgiving. Someone asked me what I'd been reading and I had no ready answer. This is a holiday faux pas for those of us with bookish inclinations. I ended up pulling up my Goodreads to remind myself what I'd even read recently. And then felt … Continue reading A holiday bookish pickle {Quick Lit – Nov 2018}

I've been really enjoying trying to read more diverse books this year, and I feel like I am finally in a good groove. Most of these are recent releases. There are a five books based in … Continue reading Reading Widely {QuickLit Oct and Whole Together Family 14/31}

What happens when you have a book-centered mama {Whole Together Family 10/31}

I handed in the library kid-pack sans the missing hammer. The librarians smiled and granted a renewal, just as benevolent as I had imagined. We now have two more weeks to find that silly plastic hammer. Aw, blessed relief. The real Win of the Day though?  While looking for a few books for Meg, I … Continue reading What happens when you have a book-centered mama {Whole Together Family 10/31}
