Another book review! This reading challenge thing is really working – I’ve read two whole books in as many weeks. If the only effect of the challenge is that I’m finally getting myself to read, it’s been well worth it.
That being said, I strongly recommend that you pick up a copy of Elisabeth Elliot’s Passion and Purity. Rarely have I read a love story so beautifully told. In this book, Elisabeth combines her journals from her college years, memories, biblical and straightforward advice, and an intimate relationship with the Lord.
Remember in my Easter 2014 post when I said I started working on a new recipe post around midnight? Well,
Good news, guys! The reading challenge was a success! (If you’re confused, go here to see what I’m talking about).
Cara & I both managed to read through Crazy Love by Francis Chan this past week, and we’ve heard from several of you who were also planning on reading (or listening) along.
Today is celebrated around the world as “Good Friday” as a reminder of the good God did by ordaining his son to be crucified on our behalf two thousand years ago. If you think about it, it’s kind of strange that Christians throughout history would celebrate such a gruesome event. There’s a reason we celebrate Good Friday though, despite all of the horrors Jesus faced that day, and it’s because Easter was just around the corner. As we get closer to Easter, it’s imperative that we get our hearts and minds right with what we’re actually celebrating – not bunnies and eggs, but a Savior slain for our sins and resurrected to give us life. We especially appreciated the following blogs and hope you do too!
I’ve recently rediscovered a long list I made last year of all the books I want to read. Very few of them are checked off the list.
I have all these books that I want to read, but it seems like every time I pick one of them up, I only get a few chapters into it before it gets forgotten on my bedside table for months.
When springtime hits, I always get inspired to do a top-to-bottom house cleaning. Somehow when those winter blues finally fade away as the days get longer and warmer, it energizes me and inspires me to clean away the grime that has built up over the winter months.
When I’m traveling by car or even by plane for very long, I like to stock up on snacks for the trip. Since becoming gluten free, it’s been a little more difficult for me to find good snacks for long trips. Here are some snacks that work well for me. Some of these are specifically gluten free, and some of them are just naturally gluten free.
People are often surprised when I tell them that the majority of my clothes are from thrift stores. I’d say at least 75% are. And the rest are probably just good sales at ‘real’ stores. When I know I can find things that fit my needs for cheap, then why not? I love finding a good deal!

About a month ago, I received word from one of my lifelong best friends, Katie, that she was moving to Colorado! She has lived her whole life in Arkansas, but just recently landed her dream job with Compassion International. She is probably unloading boxes as I speak…or, uh… type!
