December is upon us! As someone who waits all year for the holidays to come around again, I’m incredibly excited. We had our Christmas tree up by the second week of November (don’t judge!). And I’m already making a mental bucket list of things in my head of things I’d like to do during December.
There is admittedly, never a time of year I don’t love a good book. But I feel especially book-worm-ish during the fall and winter months. When it’s cold outside, I love to whip myself up a hot chai tea latte and sit down with an old favorite “cozy” read. What I categorize as cozy, are
Ever since the start of the year, I have been keeping track of books I completed this year. I thought it was a neat idea as I could challenge myself to be intentional about finishing more books. So far I’ve completed thirty-five books this year. I was hoping to reach fifty books by the end

It’s that time again to share my book favorites for the previous month. July’s round-up includes three new-to-me books that I read for the first time last month. Cassandra Clare said this about reading: “One must always be careful of books and what is inside them, for words have the power to change us.” That
A few weeks ago, I got the opportunity to go to Forward Conference in Atlanta, Georgia. If you’re not familiar with it, it is a weekend for youth (although plenty of adults come along as leaders) with the goal of empowering us to grow deeper in our passion for God and to step into the powerful
