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.

Our Daily Question from Ink & Willow

Did you ever have a book that you love so much because it's just right? That's Our Daily Question for me. It's a three-year journal to share with your significant other. How does that work? Well, each calendar date has a question and divided space to record your answer three times.  There is a great mix of fun, serious, thought-provoking, and heartfelt questions. Generally, the only ones that we've skipped over have been the ones that talk about all the time. It's been nice to be able to pick it up with morning coffee and have a conversation ready to go. Some we've even used at the dinner table to have family discussions.  It's a wonderful little keepsake, one that will have much more value when you finish with it than when you start. If you're looking for a special gift to give a newly married couple, yourself, or even a pair of love birds that have been married for over 20 years, this is a great choice.  I received a copy of this book from Ink & W

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.

Journey to Love Matt Mikalatos

Did you read Sky Lantern ? No? Well, go read it and then come back for this book. Yes, order them at the same time! I promise you, they'll both be worth it and they really are part of one another. Here's why, Matt Mikalatos lost a very dear friend, Shasta, he tells part of their story in Sky Lantern and fulfills a promise to with Journey to Love.  Journey to Love is a little book, almost a 40 day devotional with little vignettes of love and then ways for you to reflect that love and an exercise to grow in that aspect of love. It's not an easy book because love isn't an easy thing. the reflections and exercises sometimes take a few days to work through or a lifetime if we're honest.  I was touched by how Mikalatos decided to fulfill his promise to Shasta, how he managed to leave a little bit of their love on the written page for people to witness for years to come. It's beautiful and heartbreaking and challenging and rewarding. To be able to have a little glimpse
