Book Review: The Children’s Story

When I was visiting a friend in Idaho, her sister and I were talking about books we have read as well as our interactions with children. She told me I had to read this unusual book called The Children's Story by James Clavell. It was short, but really good, and drove home a point that I often made … Continue reading Book Review: The Children’s Story

Book Review: The Man Who Mistook His Wife For a Hat

As I mentioned a few times this year, my husband and I moved from South Carolina to Washington state in late January/early February. Why such a big move? Well, the Navy told us we had to. 😉 With such a big move means a new home, new community, and new people. I've made a friend … Continue reading Book Review: The Man Who Mistook His Wife For a Hat

Thoughts on Andy Stanley’s Aftermath Series: A Preface

If you, like me, are active at all on the theological or church side of Twitter, you may remember that back in May, Andy Stanley (once again) went under fire for making an extremely controversial statement about the Bible. Tweets went flying left and right, quoting him as saying that Christians need to "unhitch the … Continue reading Thoughts on Andy Stanley’s Aftermath Series: A Preface

Book Club Book Review: Xenoman

Each month, Brittany's Pages and I team up to do a virtual book club. May's book was Xenoman by Adam Martin. This fun and unusual semi-dystopian sci-fi adventure was quite the read! As you can see by the fact that my review is being posted a week late, I did have a hard time finishing it.  Xenoman tells … Continue reading Book Club Book Review: Xenoman

Book Review: Thirteen Reasons Why

I first read Thirteen Reasons Why by Jay Asher almost three years ago at the recommendation of a friend. I read it, loved it, and recommended it to others. Now, as I'm doing my bookshelf challenge this year and encountering some rereads, I have come back to Thirteen Reasons Why, three years older and with a little more … Continue reading Book Review: Thirteen Reasons Why

FlyLady in May: Zones 5 and 1

You may have noticed that I did not publish an entry for Zone 4 in my FlyLady in May series. This was intentional. Since I was out of town for a good portion of the week I was supposed to be in Zone 4, I was not able to give it the attention I should … Continue reading FlyLady in May: Zones 5 and 1

June Book Club

Each month, Brittany and I team up to do a virtual book club/buddy read. This month's book is The Carnival Keepers by Amber Gulley. This fascinating fantasy looks to be similar to The Night Circus (from what I've read about both books!). I'm looking forward to reading this one! It's 1879, and James, a time-wasting … Continue reading June Book Club
