This book is a game changer for me. I have been honoring Sabbath for a little while now, but I plan on adding no screens to my time of rest. I love that this isn't just a book that says, "I do this and it's great." It's filled with all kinds of research and ideas and truth that back up the benefits of living 24/6. This is a must-read for everyone.

This is a super fun read. With a hilarious sleuth, a twisted town and a murder mystery that had me in the dark until the end about who the killer was, this was the perfect read to get lost in for the weekend. Love that it's a series.

Just finished this for school. Excellent insight into how the church can better care for those with mental illness. The author's personal story makes a huge impact.

Recursion | Blake Crouch

This book is SO GOOD!! I love Blake Crouch's stories and writing. It reminds me of Michael Crichton. It can get technical, but if you don't get bogged down in that and just read, his characters are so great and you want to run through the story with them. I've been in a reading slump and this got me out of it. I couldn't put it down.

Hubby and I listened to this audiobook on our road trip the other day. It is HILARIOUS. A super funny take on things like - how much girls loved John Cusack in the 80's and why, The Real World, Coldplay, and much more.

One of the things I love about Anne Lamott is that I don't agree with everything she says. I feel confident if she heard me say this though, she'd shrug and go, "that's cool. I don't agree with everything you say either." ? What I love most about her is this: the nuggets of wisdom in her work are so vast there's not a tote bag in the world that could hold them.

This was so yummy I read it in one day, but I will savor the wisdom for a lifetime. Linking scripture to bread, fish, figs and more, it's a decadent way to view life and food. I loved it.

I walked by this one at the library and it caught my eye. Each chapter is a different person's story. They intertwine some, but I felt it read almost like a book of short stories. I loved it. The writing is lovely and the characters intriguing. I will definitely be looking for more from this author. 🤓
