Keen BookTube Review

Keen BookTube Review

I fell in love with the book cover and the rest is history. I received an ARC of Keen and devoured it. The characters are so much fun. Aubree, Seamus, and Oliver are Caoine’s first real friends and all hold secrets of their own. They help her discover if being a banshee is a gift or […]

Chocolate Friends and Books

Chocolate Friends and Books

Yes, I have the hubris to quote myself. One of my favorite sayings is, “I prefer my chocolate and friends in quality not quantity.” I’m amending that to books. For the past 4-5 years I’ve set out to read 100 books per year and won that goal. I devoured light, fun fiction. The past two […]

All Good Things Must Come to an End

All Good Things Must Come to an End

Two years ago I embarked on one of the most life-changing adventures of my life. I was invited to participate in the inaugural Ladies Leadership Training class at our church. My husband had completed Timothy Leadership Training, which was the single best thing to happen to our marriage and family. God took my husband and […]

The Stranger

The Stranger

[This is an update from a blog post I did on my own site a few years ago. The title, like many from my page is a song title, in this case a Billy Joel song] Do you sometimes wonder who you are? Do you sometimes feel like the world’s biggest poseur? To celebrate my […]
