The Best 16 Books I Read In 2016

“She read books as one would breathe air, to fill up and live.” {Annie Dillard} I was intentionally quiet in 2016, reading more than writing while I waited for God to give me something new to say. Truth be told, after the beat down that was 2015 for our family, I needed some time to sit…

4 Things I Learned This Summer

Here are a handful of things I learned this summer: 1. Audiobooks make everything better. The things I look forward to doing now because I have audiobooks on my phone is astonishing.

#KKLREADS (vol. 2)

A couple of months ago I mentioned to my husband that a woman in a memoir I’d just finished had fallen asleep in the tub with her infant and drowned him. A few days later I realized that, no, that wasn’t right. The author of the memoir had lost a child, but the bathtub scene I…

#KKLReads (vol. 1)

I don’t know if this makes me crazy or smart, but one reason I read so many books is to make this very week of the year so much easier. I know which books I want to give people, I know which ones I want to ask for, and I know right where to look to hook my…

Link Love (vol. 8)

During an interview at Verve Vegas a couple weeks ago, I was asked, “What are you reading right now?” My husband just shook his head like you have no idea people and I laughed because, well, this is what I was reading in September… God for the Rest of Us by Vince Antonucci Vince is the lead pastor at Verve Vegas, where my husband…

Summer Reads in Review

Here are the books I started reading and finished this summer that you might want to add to (or take off) your lists for the fall. I ended up only having to purchase two of these 10 titles, so three cheers for the library! Young Adult Fiction Eleanor & Park by Rainbow Rowell I kicked off the summer with…

2015 Summer Reading List

No matter how strongly I deny it or wish it weren’t so, summer is still three fast weeks away [cries into hands]. I have no plan, I have no nanny, and I certainly don’t have the six figure income it takes to send three kids to camp simultaneously for even one week. I do, however, have books… READ ALOUDS  8…

I’m excited to welcome Christine Hoover to the blog today as she launches her newest book, From Good to Grace: Letting Go of the Goodness Gospel. Her blog, Grace Covers Me and her first book, The Church Planting Wife, were lifelines to me during the early years of our church planting voyage, so I’m especially grateful to have her here today. Welcome, Christine! When Christian Women…

Link Love (vol. 6)
