Book Review: The World Needs More Love Letters
The World Needs More Love Letters All-in-One Stationery and Envelopes might be the most fun book I've ever reviewed!  This cute little bundle of ready-to-mail stationery can be folded up into its own envelope and sent on its way.  I love this.   I immediate...

Review: From Tablet to Table
I fully expected to love this book.  I expected it to be about turning away from social media and screens (tablet) toward our families and traditions (table).  I was slightly off. From Tablet to Table: Where Community Is Found and Identity Is Formed is abou...

Book Review: The Fifty-Year Silence
I enjoy reading memoirs.  There is wisdom to glean in every well-written memoir.   A Fifty-Year Silence: Love, War, and a Ruined House in France shares both the life experiences of the young author and those of her recently deceased grandparents. The author...

It's that time of year. Whether you make resolutions or not, this time of year can be one for reflection on the past and planning ahead to the future. I always make sure to take a few hours by myself at a coffee shop to ponder and pray before diving back into the regularity of daily life.

Book Review: Knitting Block by Block
Isn't winter the ideal time to settle in with some needles or a hook?  Here in Idaho, we haven't actually had much real winter, but east and south of us has gotten hammered recently.  Some of you will be home-bound for several days.  The perfect time to sta...

Book Review: Like a Flower in Bloom
