Fun Friday {Memoirs}

I just got back from a quick getaway with these sweet girls, and among other things, we talked a LOT about favorite books.

{Jen Hatmaker, Boomama, Vicki Courtney, & Bigmama}

There was universal agreement that I needed to read several I haven’t, so I ordered a few and they came yesterday. With that said, I finished this one in a couple hours.

I don’t remember the last time I was so captivated by a book. It is EXQUISITE. Has anyone else here read it? So good. So, so good. There is a little language in it so don’t let your kiddos read it, but it’s not enough to detract from the AMAZING story.

I believe I am going on a little memoir kick this summer, so if you have any that you recommend, please leave them in the comments!!!

Happy {hot} day to you!!!


Bloom (in)courage, Book Recommendation

Bloom Announcement!

In answer to your (soon to be) question, I don’t know what is happening with my hair. I’m also having reservations about that shirt, which looks much cuter standing up.

Enough about me.

I’m not really a huge fan of the make-up either. Maybe it’s the lighting. It could be my head.

Ok, I’m really done now.

And despite all of these reservations, I still want you to watch this quick little video to hear about our latest selection for the Bloom Book Club. Maybe I needed the reminder…and maybe you do too.

What I’m Reading

I’m going to start doing these posts monthy-ish, because as  you might have noticed, I am a major bookworm. There is always a stack next to my bed that makes it look like I’m cramming for some kind of final exam and now that I have been traveling so much I have had a lot more time to read. I’m going to list what I’m reading and then invite you all to share the same with everyone else.

I’m always jumping from book to book so even though I will mention a bunch that doesn’t mean I have finished all of them, but these are some that are on my reading list right now:


What the Bible is All About by Henrietta Mears: I have read this one before but a new updated version just came out so I had to buy it. It is (in my opinion) the best of the best if you want to learn more about the Bible. Such incredible insights…LOVE, LOVE, LOVE.


And I picked this one up at the bookstore today and am already halfway through it. I have read some of her other books and have loved them as well. This one is already full of underlining and notes…really recommend it.

Just finished this-

And one of my all time favorites for quiet time…

And this last one I just ordered from Amazon tonight and I can’t wait to get it. I thumbed through it at the bookstore but it was a lot cheaper online so I have to wait t a few days to dig in.

It looks SOOOOO good. I read a few pages and was hooked!


What about you? Anything good on your nightstand these days? Any books you want to share with the class?



p.s. if you click over and order through amazon, I get a small percentage of your order price as a referral fee. Just so you know!
