Book Review_ Eat Cake. Be Brave

Book Review: Eat Cake. Be Brave. by Melissa Radke

This post may contain affiliate links and ads, you can learn more about this by viewing my full disclaimer here. Eat Cake. Be Brave. is a fairly new book and Melissa Radke‘s first book. If you know that name it is probably from one of her many viral videos, including “Upside Down French Braid” and “Red Ribbon Week“, both of which are hilarious. I first heard about her on the That Sounds Fun Podcast with Annie F. Downs. She was so fun and engaging during that interview that I decided to start following her myself, and I am so glad I Read More

Book Review_ 100 Days to Brave

Book Review: 100 Days to Brave by Annie F. Downs

I just finished the 100 Days to Brave Summer challenge that Annie F. Downs started at the end of May. I’ve never been a part of a challenge like this because I know myself well enough to know that I typically don’t finish things like this, so I usually don’t bother starting them. However, I love Annie and follow her religiously on Instagram as well as on her That Sounds Fun podcast, so I thought if I was every going to finish one of these challenges it would more than likely be with one of her books.  Within the first Read More

Book Review: I’m Still Here by Austin Channing Brown

I recently read I’m Still Here: Black Dignity in a World Made for Whiteness by Austin Channing Brown. Initially, I heard about this book when Jen Hatmaker had her on the For the Love podcast, which I listen to religiously. Her honesty and sincerity were so moving that I pretty much immediately ordered her book. The book focuses on the idea of true racial justice and why/how our ideas of diversity so often don’t live up to our words about it. I have to admit I’ve not read much on this topic, not for a lack of desire to learn, but from Read More

Book Review: The Polygamist’s Daughter

This post may contain affiliate links and ads, you can learn more about this by viewing my full disclaimer here. I was introduced to Anna Lebaron when I joined the launch team that she was leading for Bob Goff‘s new book Everybody Always. In the beginning I didn’t realize that she was an author herself, but what I did realize from my first social media interactions with her was how genuinely friendly, nice, and fun she was. Book launching is part of her job, but she went above and beyond to make us all feel part of the team and really get to know Read More

Book Review: For the Love by Jen Hatmaker

This post may contain affiliate links and ads, you can learn more about this by viewing my full disclaimer here. For the Love by Jen Hatmaker is not a new book, nor is it even a new-to-me book. I just read it for the second time, which should give you an idea of how much I love it. I am currently on a mission to read all of Jen Hatmaker’s books, because I love her so much. However, I felt the need to start with “For the Love” since it had been so long since I had read it. If you Read More

Top 10 Transformative Christian Living Books…Thus Far

This post may contain affiliate links and ads, you can learn more about this by viewing my full disclaimer here. Like most writers, I love to read! I read all the time. I enjoy all types of books –  fiction, nonfiction, funny, serious – just not sad, I don’t do sad. However, my favorite genre is Christian, mainly Christian living. I’m talking about nonfiction books that were written to challenge and grow you in your faith. I’m constantly recommending books within this genre to people…sometimes they ask, sometimes they don’t, but that’s irrelevant. So, I thought I would compose a list Read More

Book Review: Everybody Always by Bob Goff

This post may contain affiliate links and ads, you can learn more about this by viewing my full disclaimer here. I was blessed with the opportunity to be on the launch team for Bob Goff’s new book, Everybody Always. The book doesn’t release until April 17th, however I received the first five chapters early. Bob Goff’s first book Love Does was remarkable. There are few books that I can say this about, but it truly changed the way I live my life and my perspective on the world. It was powerful, convicting, and inspiring. If you have not read it, I Read More

Book Review: For Women Only

I’ve been trying to read more Christian nonfiction lately. Something that I did a lot of in college, but once I graduated adulting got in the way of any and all reading other than young adult fiction (not that I’m complaining, love me some Twilight). I also wanted to challenge myself to read different authors and genres than I’m used. I was mainly doing this to grow and develop my relationship with Christ, and wasn’t necessarily excited about expanding my horizons. However, it has been surprisingly enjoyable. Now, I’m one of those people that finds something I like at a Read More
