A Bible You Can Cuddle.

I have always LOVED to read. When I was younger I remember being so engrossed in one of the Harry Potter books, (at one of those really intense, “will Harry get killed this time??” moments,) that when my mom opened my bedroom door, I jumped off the bed and the book went flying from my hands. I love getting so lost in a book it felt like you were living life in those pages.

One of my hopes for Knox is that he will fall in love with reading as much as I did. (Looks like he’s well on his way!) I know so much of our culture spends its’ time in front of the TV, but I want him to experience the creativity of picturing what the characters look like, instead of that information being easily provided for him on a screen.

Working women want to take their careers to the next level, but are struggling to “do it all.” Stay-at-home moms look for relief from burning the candle at both ends. Aspiring entrepreneurs and artists seek the courage to jump into a new venture.

Mark of the Lion.

I FINALLY finished Francine River’s Mark of the Lion series. It may have taken me months to finish them, but they really were great books. As each one came to a finish, I couldn’t put them down. Seriously! I finished the last book Saturday night at 2:15am…which was actually 3:15am (thanks Daylight Savings). 

I’m not gonna lie, I’m such a sucker for series.

Dear Mr. Knightley

Maybe it’s because football was on ALLLLLLL day New Year’s Day, maybe it’s because this was a really good book, but I read this entire book in a day and a half.┬áIt was light, enjoyable, and happy, the perfect book to start off the New Year.

I won’t give away too much, but one of my favorite parts is that the main character, Samantha Moore, is obsessed with reading the classics, primarily, Jane Austen.

Confessions of a Closet Book Nerd.

This past year, I did a lot of reading. Especially over the winter when it was football season. Since I’m not as big of a football nut at Stuart, but enjoy spending time with him, I came up with the perfect compromise: to read while he watches football (or golf, or basketball, or volleyball, or baseball…you get the idea.) And as it was my first winter married to Stuart, I had ample time and opportunity to read through lots of books!
