Be You. Do Good. : Having the Guts to Pursue What Makes You Come Alive by Jonathan Golden

  My copy of Be You. Do Good. by Jonathan Golden is dog-eared and full of underlines, brackets, and notes from the Foreword to the Acknowledgements.  I really enjoyed Jonathan’s adventures that have taken him from studying psychology, to starting a private practice in counseling, consulting as a Life Coach, becoming an ordained priest, planting […]

Breaking Busy by Alli Worthington

  In reading “Breaking Busy,” I had a hard time relating to busy and burned-out Alli Worthington. Alli shares stories of flights, speaking engagements, blogging, founding Blissdom events, consulting, business coaching, writing a book, becoming executive director of Propel Women, raising five sons, and being a full-time working mom with a stay-at-home-husband. The decisions and […]

Money Making Mom by Crystal Paine

I have been a fan of New York Times bestselling author Crystal Paine since I first discovered her website, Money Saving Mom, in the winter of 2010.  Crystal is an authentic Christian who lavishly shares practical financial advice with her followers.  Thanks in large part to reading her website daily, my family became debt-free in […]

IF: Trading your IF ONLY Regrets for God’s WHAT IF Possibilities

Earlier this month I was asked to join Mark Batterson’s Launch Team for his newest Book Launch, IF.  I received a FREE hard copy of the book in return for my honest review.  My copy of the book arrived on its launch day, October 6, and I finished reading all 282 pages on October 12.  […]

23 Books I Read in 2013

Do you like to read?  I love to read, and it’s one of my favorite ways to spend my “free” time.  A year and a half ago when I made six goals, I couldn’t believe that I finished 3 books in 3 weeks.  I’ve come a long way in goal-setting since then, and I’ve become […]

If you’re wondering when I’m going to get tired of reading financial self-help books, you’re in good company!  However, I do still enjoy financial literature for inspiration and encouragement. Pocket Your Dollars: 5 Attitude Changes That Will Help You Pay Down Debt, Avoid Financial Stress, & Keep More of What You Make by Carrie Rocha […]

Book Review: 100 Ways to Save $1000 by Scott Kerzner

Today I received a free e-book for subscribing to the blog, “In Due Season.”  I didn’t begin reading this book with very high expectations.  I’d never heard of Scott Kerzner or his blog.  I was pleased to see that his e-book was only 32 pages long which meant I could read it in one sitting […]

Book Review: Your Beautiful Purpose by Susie Larson

I was excited about Your Beautiful Purpose: Discovering and Enjoying What God Can Do Through You by Susie Larson as soon as I saw that Ann Voskamp (One Thousand Gifts) had written the Foreward.  This book was written specifically for women, with a DVD Study Companion for Bible Study Groups.  Each chapter begins with a […]

Book Review: Finding God in the Dark by Ted Kluck & Ronnie Martin

My initial interest in this book stemmed from my own experiences with death, disappointment, and disillusionment.  As I began to read Finding God in the Dark: Faith, Disappointment, and the Struggle to Believe, I found it difficult to connect to recording artist Ronnie Martin, and in fact disliked him at first.  However, the more I […]

Book Review: These Are The Days Of Elijah by R.T. Kendall

When I first saw the title of this book, I immediately began humming the tune to the song by that name, one I first heard as a teenager attending “Chrysalis.”  With that happy memory as a starting point, I read and enjoyed These are the Days Of Elijah: How God Uses Ordinary People to Do […]
