2017 Recap: A Year for the Books?

This past year was a year for the books, I think. From surviving our first Wyoming winter (which was not as bad we’d expected, although it was longer than we anticipated), to learning new skills and growing in ministry roles, discovering latent talents, exploring the west, and beginning our deputation adventures, 2017 has been full […]

#Read2017 – Literary Adventures in November and December

Can you believe 2017 is almost over? I guess every year goes a little faster, the older and busier you get. And we have been busy! I usually try to avoid that over-used buzzword, but in this case, there’s no other word for it. The past two months alone have included: ministering in Wyoming; driving […]

#Read2017 – Literary Adventures in September and October

#Read2017 – Literary Adventures in March & April

I read ten books in March and April for the #Read2017 challenge. Lest you think that’s all I did that past two months, be aware that many of them were short, quick reads. Only two were nonfiction, and each of those were short and easily skimmed through in about an hour. Of the remaining eight, half were […]

#Read2017 – Literary Adventures in January & February

It’s always fun to start a new challenge, and this year’s #Read2017 challenge is no exception. I learned some things last year–like the need to stay more balanced with fiction and nonfiction–and discovered just how much I enjoy biographies and certain authors (here’s looking at you, Tolkien and Wodehouse), and am anticipating a good year of learning […]
