Book Review: Ripper: The Secret Life of Walter Sickert

I have a confession to make: I am a terrible true crime fan. I love listening to My Favorite Murder and if I'm ever in a hotel, Dateline and The First 48 are shows I jump at watching. But I don't always keep up with famous murders, unless they are directly in my radar (thank … Continue reading Book Review: Ripper: The Secret Life of Walter Sickert

Book Review: Hemingway Didn’t Say That

Have you ever heard a quote attributed to a specific person and thought, "did they really say that?" Facebook, Pinterest, Instagram, and other social media outlets circulate countless sayings supposedly coined by Albert Einstein, Marilyn Monroe, Abraham Lincoln, and many others. Oftentimes, the attribution alone seems to give the quote more clout. But did they … Continue reading Book Review: Hemingway Didn’t Say That

Catechism Mondays: Week 2

Q: What is God? A: God is the creator, and sustainer of everyone and everything.

Book Review: Girl, Wash Your Face

Oh, boy. Okay. This book is a mash-up of "here's how to get more done" and "if you're not successful it's 100% your fault" with a little bit of Jesus talk thrown in. I came to Girl, Wash Your Face by Rachel Hollis knowing what people have said about it, both good and bad. I … Continue reading Book Review: Girl, Wash Your Face

Book Review: Paris for One (and Other Stories)

One of my favorite ways to approach the library is to just wander and browse until something catches my eye. The library I frequent is fairly small so this usually doesn't take long. Because it is small, browsing instead of coming in with a list is usually much less disappointing. If I don't know what … Continue reading Book Review: Paris for One (and Other Stories)

Catechism Mondays: Week 1

Q: What is our only hope in life and death? A: That we are not our own but belong, body and soul, both in life and death to God and to our Savior Jesus Christ.  "For none of us lives to himself, and none of us dies to himself. For if we live, we live … Continue reading Catechism Mondays: Week 1

Finding Land Book Club

I hope you all had a wonderful Christmas! I got to spend a quiet, sleepy day with my husband (I took a much-needed three hour nap!) on the day of Christmas. The next day, we enjoyed a fun day and day after Christmas dinner with quite a few of Reid's coworkers. Today is Reid's last … Continue reading Finding Land Book Club

Hello, December

As you have probably already figured out, I did not win NaNoWriMo this year. I've been trying to spend less time beating myself up this year and more time focusing on what I am accomplishing. For example, I did not come even close to winning NaNo. But I did write something. I have the project set … Continue reading Hello, December

So I’m Doing NaNoWriMo

Okay, peanut gallery, I see you. I see the skepticism in your eyes as you read the title of this blog post, blink, rub your eyes, and read it again. I never said I was not going to be doing a NaNoWriMo this year. I have just only recently decided that I would. I have not done much … Continue reading So I’m Doing NaNoWriMo
