I am dying to read Tara's book, too! She's actually doing a book signing here Thursday and I cannot wait to meet her. The other books you mentioned are on my To Read list!

Food memoirs have been calling my name for several years now. I can't get enough of them and yet I find there are still plenty more I need to read. Since I'm frequently asked for book recommendations, I thought I'd start compiling lists of different categories and there was no... Continue reading

I had jury duty for the first time about 5 years ago. Initially, I was irritated when the summons arrived in the mail. I was preparing to move out of state and the timing could not have been worse. But then I figured it was part of my patriotic duty... Continue reading

I swear, every time I read a food memoir, my knife skills improve. I must need lots of reminders! Hope you enjoy the book.

It is definitely a keeper!

RIGHT?! Glad we were concert buddies.

The photographs alone made me drool.

That fried chicken was so, so good, too! So glad you enjoy this linkup, Linda.

What I love about Nashville in March is there might be a few cold days but it's mostly weather in the 60s and 70s and you can sit on your front porch after work and soak up all the sunshine. And sometimes when you walk out to your car, you... Continue reading

I love that you and Kristen are hosting a brunch! I read an article about The Parents Circle several months ago and I've thought about them often. If I lived anywhere near you, I'd be there with bells on.

Thanks for letting me know this resonated, Stephanie! It's been a while since I spent time at a Christian bookstore but I worked at one for several years about a decade ago. I remember how few Christian fiction books had POC as main characters or even minor characters and I think it was even worse when it came to Christian YA. I hope that's changing!

I don't think I read the Maui Moon book- there are a few stand alones I've missed. Glad I'm not the only one who feels like God speaks to them through Christy Miller.

Love that you had your own coffee tin! I'm surprised I didn't do that myself.

Like many evangelical girls, I grew up on a steady diet of Christian series. I read the Chronicles of Narnia, Grandma's Attic, and Elizabeth Gail series, tucked in amongst Anne of Green Gables and A Wrinkle in Time. After Elizabeth Gail, I was more than ready to move on to... Continue reading

I'm so glad you figured out a way to take care of yourself during those days. Single parents definitely need to practice self-care!

I learned about the necessity of self-care before my social work career even began. While getting my Masters, instructors repeatedly drilled into us two things: go to therapy and figure out a self-care plan. The former was important because of our clients. We can't help people out of our own... Continue reading

When I was a kid, not much prepared me for Easter. It was the major holiday after Christmas, of course. But there were so many other holidays first: Martin Luther King Jr. Day, Valentine's Day, Presidents Day, St. Patrick's Day, and, as someone who grew up in Chicagoland, Casimir Pulaski...

That's an apt description of Oliver's poetry. Sometimes I'll be going along and then BAM, it takes my breath away. Yay for Netflix! I don't have it but I'm happy for my overseas friends who do.
Hope you enjoy listening!

I wish this collage conveyed the particular joy of chipping through inch thick ice on your car and driveway. And by joy, I mean expletives at winter whenever I managed to dislodge a chunk of ice. For such a short month, February certainly showed off its flair for the dramatic.... Continue reading
