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: Imperfect Courage by Jessica Honegger

This post may contain affiliate links and ads, you can learn more about this by viewing my full disclaimer here. I first heard about Jessica Honegger through Jen Hatmaker‘s For the Love podcast. Jen and Jessica are friends, and even though they don”t know it yet, I feel like all they are missing is their third amigo…me! I just know we would all be best friends, but that’s another story for another day. Anyway, I had heard about Jessica and her company Noonday Collection, but that was about it. I thought Noonday sounded like a great idea and Jessica sounded like Read More

Book Review: Unexpected by Christine Caine

This post may contain affiliate links and ads, you can learn more about this by viewing my full disclaimer here. I have a confession: I have heard Christine Caine speak live three or four times now, and I really liked her the first time. Since then, though,  I’ve not enjoyed her other talks as much. Let me explain. I feel like all of her sermons have gone back to the same thing – freedom in Christ, which is great! However, often times it’s not even the theme of the event we are at, but it’s what she seems to always go Read More

Book Review_ I'm Still Here_ Black Dignity in a World Made for Whiteness by Austin Channing Brown Feature Image

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: Uninvited

This post may contain affiliate links and ads, you can learn more about this by viewing my full disclaimer here. I recently finished reading Uninvited: Living Loved When You Feel Less Than, Left Out, and Lonely by Lysa TerKeurst. I disciple a small group of college girls, and it was the first book they chose to go through. To be honest, I was quite shocked when they chose this one out of all the options I gave them. It was probably the most intense book, and it definitely required the most vulnerability when it came to discussing it. I figured they would want 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
