This Book Is for You by Tricia Lott Williford

 


Y'all know that I love Tricia Lott Williford's books, I listen to her podcast, in my mind, we would be the best of neighbors if we knew each other and lived next door to each other. This book is written for her friends, especially her friends who want to fall in love with the Bible but don't know where to begin. So if that sounds like something that you could use some help with, this is the book for you. 

This Book Is for You is not a step-by-step how to read the Bible in 365 days and get the most out of it type of book, it's more like a dating guide for the best book you'll ever read. Trisha goes through several different struggles that she had as she fell in love with Bible and what she discovered from those struggles. Overall, it's a quick read that will get you started on your own journey of loving the Bible. My favorite part was probably right at the end, where she gives a list of fifteen things to know as you navigate the bible. All fifteen are great and are often taken for granted by people that grew up reading the Bible or who have been reading it for years. This book is perfectly summed up by Tricia in the Epilogue, "Consider this to be simply one of the lights on the floor aisle of the movie theater or the airplane, a lamp strategically placed to point you to the greater path to safety."

I received a copy of this book for the purpose of review from NetGalley. I'm never required to say nice things but I'm always thankful when I can.

Stories from the Kitchen: Taste and See

I celebrated my birthday last weekend. It was wonderful and the leftovers left me with a question or two. Find out what they are and how I'm currently answering them in this week's podcast.

Sweet Caroline by Kelda Poynot

  First off, my copy of Sweet Caroline  (aff link) is not a gifted review book, I spent my well earned Amazon No-Rush Rewards money on this book. Second of all, this is not my standard close door kind of romance. Third of all, this is a really fun read. Caroline is a hard working young lady that is doing all that she can to make ends meet and to get her graduate degree. Part of that work is renting out the room above her garage. When she answers the phone of an unknown number, believing it's a future tenant, she has no idea how much her life is about to change.  The young man on the other end of that call, Hashim, is tall, dark, and mysterious in all the right ways. The story quickly moves from the girl next door falling for a stranger to a fight for their lives. And in true real life fashion, those fights aren't just with external enemies but the ones we carry within.  It's an entertaining story of Caroline and Hashim, discovering their love for each other and fighting to

Project 52: Good Friday is low key

We had a wonderful Holy week, full of celebrations, one of my favorites was the Good Friday celebration.  But it was emotionally and physically draining.  By the time that evening rolled around, we weren't up for much of anything.  We ended up having a game night on our bed with crackers, cheese and salami.  It was fun, we played cribbage, and In a Pickle (which we determined is not for two people with little to no brain power).  I'm looking forward to this Friday because Joel is off the entire week, which should mean more energy and maybe something creative!
