30 Days to Peace

Share this great Radishes Are Pink info:facebooktwitterpinterestmail

Recently I began seeing my Pinterest feed flooding with beautiful Bible journaling images and I thought I need to give it a try…and then my Catholic guilt paralyzed me and I remembered I have no artistic skill whatsoever. I kept feeling a nudge (Holy Spirit, ahem) that I need to take more time to slow down and jot down my thoughts as I pray and meditate on devotionals. I live in Katie Davis Majors’ books how she mentions using sticky notes to write down how she sees God working in her life and it made me think journaling might be a way for me to take this next step…and then an image of “30 Days to Peace” popped up on my screen. I suppose the Holy Spirit agrees with me that I still need to work on this! I love that the book has verses on each page and is inviting and makes me feel like I can jot down a little or a lot. I also love that there are more books in the series so if I am in a groove at the end of the first 30 Days there will be another book I can dig into!

Beloved

I am a sucker for devotionals. When I saw “You Are The Beloved” by Henri J.M. Nouwen was coming out I had to have it. Feeling not worthy is something I struggle with in my prayer life so the title caught my attention immediately. The book is larger than other devotionals I have, but that is precisely why I need it. I look forward to reading the daily devotionals and feeding my soul for a full year and not feeling like I am needing to reach for a new book to continue on my prayer journey. I love that this devotional has some staying power!

Book Review: Gospel-Centered Mom

Share this great Radishes Are Pink info:facebooktwitterpinterestmail

Parenting is hard. Mothering is hard, even though I have been at it for almost seven years now. The one thing I think I have down (feeding the family) sometimes doesn’t go right when the orange chicken is “too orangey” or the fruit in their lunch wasn’t their favorite fruit this week. Most days I think I am going about it all wrong and then I realize that the important things are happening: I am loving them as much as I can. At a time when I feel like I am at a parenting crossroads with needing to transition from mothering preschoolers to mothering school-age children I heard about Brooke McGothlin and her faith-based approach to parenting. Her Gospel-Centered Mom is the perfect book to help me stay grounded in what really matters and approach parenting in a more gospel-focused way. I know I will read this book again and again as I enter new parenting stages. Thank you, Brooke McGothlin, for sharing your charism with the rest of us moms!

Cherry Bombe by Kerry Diamond and Claudia Wu is a cookbook I have been stalking for a while and it has arrived! It is the ultimate in girl power deliciousness. Every recipe looks amazing with the impeccable food styling. I am super excited to try the Charred Pineapple Margarita by Gail Simmons and the recipes by Parma Lakshmi, Angela Dimayuga and Jessica Koslow. Meal plan…done!

Book Review: A Well-Crafted Home

Share this great Radishes Are Pink info:facebooktwitterpinterestmail

I have a confession: our walls are bare. And I mean stark, matte white (with some scuffs, naturally) and not a thing hanging on them. We need something (anything!) hanging on our walls. I have some friends that have decorating down to a science. Their homes feel like the perfect family home from Better Homes and Gardens. And then there’s our house. I mean, I try, kinda. I started to branch out with pillows and have that kinda down. Now is my time to try some other crafts to make our house feel more homey. Thanks to A Well-Crafted Home by Janet Crowther I have a place to start and projects that I feel I can really complete without being a Pinterest fail. I think I will start with one of the pillows and work my way up to a wall hanging. Baby steps. 🙂
