What I Learned Winter 2021

There was a day last week that it felt like summertime here in South Central PA. Should I be writing about winter in the middle of March (although it is technically winter until the 20th)? No, probably not, but the days have gotten away from me again. It’s been an…

Fall is known as a time of change, and this year was no exception.

If…

This will be much different than any other post you’ve read here, considering it’s not something about which I typically write. But, I was a part of the book launch team for this book, and reading it opened my eyes to many things I hadn’t thought about before. It’s always…

Can I tell you about another wonderful book for which I’ve gotten to be on the launch team?

The following may contain affiliate links, which means if you click on a link and make a purchase, you’re supporting me and my writing without spending anything extra. Thank you! Book reviews are interesting because it’s like, “Here, I read this book and I liked it because of something and think you’d like it because of something so go read it because I say so.” I’m not usually a bossy person. But I have three books I’m on a launch…

Book Review: This Too Shall Last

The following may contain affiliate links, which means if you click on a link and make a purchase, you’re supporting me and my writing without spending anything extra. Thank you! As one living with chronic illnesses and undiagnosed diseases, I’ve often struggled with how I feel and how I feel that I should feel. There seems to be an unspoken rule that if we say we are Christians, the answer to “How are you?” should always be positive. When I…

What’s Saving My Life This Winter

What’s Saving My Life This Winter

Inspired by Modern Mrs. Darcy (who is also my Reading Challenge inspiration this year), I have been thinking about what’s been getting me through these long winter months.

If I can’t avoid them and have the possibility of having contact with sick or non-flu vaccinated persons, I get to wear a medical mask. My favorite thing ever is drawing attention to myself (all introverts simply…

The Suitcase and the Jar

The Suitcase and the Jar

I’ve currently been working through some books I’ve had laying around that I keep meaning to get to but don’t. Am I the only one with that problem? I have a “To Be Read” list that’s longer than me and I still end up reading books NOT on the list, and add ten new ones to said list while I am at it.

Ramblings of What’s Been Going On (and Coming Up)

Ramblings of What’s Been Going On (and Coming Up)

November has seemed to be a full month. I started writing a book for NaNoWriMo, which has taken up a decent amount of time (but not as much as one would think), I’ve been working on getting ready for the holidays, and along with all of everything else that goes on in life, Andrew and I went away for a few days. We went to Wisconsin for a wedding, so that threw off my journaling and devotional time, too. I…
