I Tried Reading 8 Books in 3 Days

When I found out that we were going on a three day trip without devices, I knew I needed a way to pass the time in the car. And I could never pass up the opportunity to read some new library books. I somehow managed to end up with eight books for the three days I was away. There was no way I could read that many books in such a short time. 

But I had never tried. And thus I decided I was up for a challenge, especially with all the time on my hands. It seemed so fun. 

My goal was to read all eight books. I could read for eight hours in the car one day, at night before bed, and the drive home.

It sounded great in theory. I made sure to tell my family just so that I’d be stubborn enough to stick with it.

The Scorpio Races // by Maggie Stiefvatar

It’s rare to find books that I fall deeply and utterly in love with. Some are good. The kind you recommend to others and really enjoy. And there’s a select few that make you want to sit back and contemplate life and have a good cry because it was so amazing. 

The Scorpio Races was definitely one of the latter. What a masterpiece. I cannot get over how well written this beauty is. Read More »

She’s back // changes, a life update, & more

Hey you guys,

I’m sitting here, stuck on how to even begin this post. So much has changed in the past few months of my life.

First of all, I want to apologize for not warning you that I was about to disappear off of the blogosphere. The reason that you didn’t know, is because I didn’t either. The break was unintentional, but so very much needed.

But the good news is that I’m back! Finally! And I’m planning to stick around for a while this time. 🙂

I wanted to start out with a life update, but read to the end for important changes taking place on my blog as well!

Let’s dive in, shall we?

This is Me // Identity Blog Series

Hey there dears! This is the first in a series of blog posts that will be focusing on identity, worth, and purpose as a young woman in the midst of a world that places value on everything but our Creator.

I think I do have a few guy readers, so for those of you who are, you can still read this if you do feel like it. 😛

But I thought it would be an encouragement to focus just a bit more on what God’s design is on the subject of worth as a young woman.

(At the bottom of this post I will be doing a list of the other places where some girls will be posting as a part of this series, if that’s something that you’re interested in as well.)

Without much more of my rambling, I’ll just let you read. 😛

2018 // Reflecting on God’s Goodness

I love the New Year. I love fresh starts, a time to make new resolutions, change things up a little bit, and get excited for yet another calendar year. It’s the kind of change that everyone looks forward to, I think.

But as I look back, I also feel a teeny twinge of sadness that it’ll never be 2018 again.

I wanted to do a wrap up post of the year like everyone else was doing, but I realized that maybe something a bit different would be better for me. (Plus the fact that I wasn’t very good at keeping track of everything over the course of one year. Not talking about that.)

I love getting things done, and I think this was another year of a ton of great things that happened, but even better than everything I accomplished, was what God accomplished.
