What I Read:
Grace Not Perfection by Emily Ley. First of all, what’s not to love about a gorgeous pink and gold book? Buy this book and buy the actual, physical copy of it. Because as good as it is to read, it is equally as good to look at. Emily’s focus throughout this entire book is on building an intentionally slower rhythm of life, which I love. The Stars: 5/5
Gods In Alabama by Joshilyn Jackson. Southern fiction is one of my most favorite genres to read, and Joshilyn Jackson did not disappoint me. As a matter of fact, I’ve already picked out several other titles by her and added them to my reading list. “Gods In Alabama” has it all: murder, love, southern vocabulary and traditions–it made my Southern loving heart happy! The Stars: 5/5
Good As Gone by Amy Gentry. This book reminded me of “Gone Girl” and “Girl On The Train”–it kept me guessing and threw me for quite a loop at the end. It stirred my mama heart in the same way that “What She Knew” did last month, and as great a story as it was, I think I need to stay away from this type of book for a while! The Stars: 5/5
You Are Free: Be Who You Already Are by Rebekah Lyons. In this second book of Rebekah’s, she challenges us to live a life of freedom. We are not free to do whatever we want to do without consequences, but we are free to live the abundant life that God has planned for us. The Stars: 5/5
Change Your Home, Change Your Life With Color: What’s Your Color Story? by Moll Anderson. I was so excited when I was given the opportunity to be on launch team for this book. It doesn’t release until March 14, but you can pre-order it now! In this title, Moll introduces a new way of thinking about color and design, and how the two can affect your mood. I really enjoyed reading through this as I am planning the decor of our forever farmhouse! The Stars: 5/5
The Education of Ivy Blake by Ellen Airgood. This book simultaneously broke and encouraged my mama heart. Justin and I have talked for years about doing foster care, and this book was a kick in the pants. If you’ve ever considered taking a child in, even just for a little while, this is a book for you. I hope and pray that my home is one like the Evers’ home, a safe haven and favorite place for all who enter. The Stars: 5/5
Any suggestions as to what I should read next? Leave those titles in the comments!
