Review of “Excellent Women”

“Excellent Women” by Barbara Pym was given to me by a family friend who has known me since first grade. That being said, I knew the recommendation would be something I would enjoy. When someone has known you that long, they get your personality and your interests. This book started off a little dry, mainly…

Review of “Turtles All the Way Down”

In this novel, John Green dives into an interesting topic: a high school girl who is so afraid of sickness that it, at times, consumes her every thought. It affects her thoughts, her behaviors, and so much more. Despite the interesting nature of being inside this main character’s head, I did not enjoy this book…

Halfway Brave

This week has hit the halfway point in the 100 days to brave devotional I’ve been going through with my bible study group.

Love: The Best Example

If you’re with me and said “Yes! The Sacrifice is worth it!” Then I want to commend you. It’s hard to sacrifice your wants and needs for another. But now comes the tricky part. How do we actually live this out? We spoke some on application last time, but this time I want to focus…
