Pause the Netflix, Sister, it’s time to get reading!

Writing comes second only to my love for reading. Books are enchanting in their ability to transport us through time and space; there are worlds waiting within the pages of words written if we would only take the time to read them.

One of my favorite things to do is snuggle up on the couch or in my bed and get lost in a good book. I’m extending the invitation to you to fall in love with the art of reading by featuring one book on the first of each month that I have personally read and been impacted deeply by.

If you see one on my list that grabs your attention… yay! There will be affiliate links included in each monthly post, so all you have to do is click the link and it will you take you directly to that book on Amazon where you can purchase it at no extra cost to you.

So snuggle up in your favorite reading spot, and enjoy!

July’s Book of the Month.

“If I have learned anything in this long life of mine, it is this: in love, we find out who we want to be; in war, we find out who we are.”
― Kristin Hannah, The Nightingale

The Nightingale is a riveting tale of two sisters navigating their way through German-occupied France at the height of World War II. At the beginning of this story, we find two sisters; divided by their differences in personality but tied together by their fierce desire to protect the people they love. One is marked by quiet strength – aching desperately to hold her family together – while the other will forever be remembered by risks taken in the name of freedom. Both women embark on a journey of a lifetime as war reveals a kind of strength they never knew they had and healing they never knew they needed. To date, this has become my favorite historical fiction book! Telling you I could not put it down would be an understatement. Kristin Hannah did a beautiful job at painting a pristine picture of what being a woman at the time of World War II must’ve been like. This tale will break your heart only to put it back together again. The Nightingale is now at the top of my list of favorites, and if you’re someone that loves historical fiction… you need to add this to your summer reading list!

June’s Book of the Month.

What I’m finding to be most helpful more than any list, question, or sage advice is simply to get quiet in a room with Jesus on the regular, not for the sake of an answer but for the sake of love. – Emily P. Freeman; The Next Right Thing

I read ‘The Next Right Thing’ right in the middle of a difficult season of chaos and uncertainty. A season where decisions seemed overwhelming and anxiety sat at the door of my heart screaming to be let in. Emily P. Freeman’s gentle yet sound truths helped guide me to peace throughout the stress of quarantine life. She has created a simple but powerful masterpiece that aids in decision making by creating room for your soul to breathe. The Next Right Thing constantly reminded me that making the ‘right’ decision isn’t always the point… but that love is always found at the feet of Jesus amidst our tough decisions. Naming our stresses and our desires helps us take back our power as we submit them to the feet of Jesus and trust that His voice within us will be strong enough to do The Next Right Thing… in love. If you are someone facing a tough decision that needs to be made, or you have trouble making decisions at all, this ‘wrapped in beautiful grace’ kind of book is for you!
