Currently: End of 2018

Current Books: I spent the semester immersed in two series from NK Jemison. Over the break, so far, I have been reading Kingdom of the Blind by Louise Penny, Autism in Heels by Jennifer Cook O’Toole, The Land of Yesterday by KA Reynolds, and The House of the Scorpion by Nancy Farmer. Current Playlist: 90s…

The Scientific Method of Getting Luckie

Dear Neglected Blog, I am neck-deep in two jobs and full-time school. I miss you. I miss writing my thoughts on a leisurely morning, coffee steaming beside me. Those days will come again. In the meantime, please take a trip over to Swoon Reads and read my book (for free) for a limited time. The…

Alternative Theologies

If you know me well or have read much of this blog, you already know I have a lot of struggles with faith and religion. I believe in something bigger than me, than this world, than creation. I love Jesus and want to be more like him. I am certain that loving one another and…

What Does Revival Look Like?

I was chatting with a friend last week, and she said something that has stuck with me. She said, “Revival doesn’t look like they thought it would.” My friend was talking about a particular category of church people, those mostly of an older generation (though not all) who often talk about praying for revival. For…

Apropos of Nothing

I love spring weather, but my allergies are ridiculous this year. Even after taking my meds this morning, I walked into Spanish class with puffy red eyes, smudged eye makeup, etc. I looked like a 15-year-old girl going through her first breakup. I’m sure my classmates were tired of blessing me every time I sneezed….

Current Books: I had a gift card from my birthday, so I bought myself Amanda Lovelace’s new volume: The Witch Doesn’t Burn in this One. On audio during my school commute, I am listening to Pretend We Are Lovely by Noley Reid. I just finished Maybe the Saddest Thing by Marcus Wicker (I get to…

A Blog About Socks

Socks? I’m snowed in for the sixth day. I’ve had time to think about everything in the world. This particular post has been forming for a few weeks, and now I have a little bit of free time to type it out. It started when my friend raved about Woven Pear socks. I commented to…

Current Books: I am reading (and loving) The Nowhere Girls by Amy Reed, and I cannot believe that I share an agent with such an amazingly talented writer. If you come near me, I will gush about this book. Be prepared. I am almost through Richard Rohr’s book on the Enneagram. It has been both…

And I Read: 2017 Edition

In January… I obsessively listened to the Liturgists podcast. The word “hygge” entered my life. I went back to college after 13 years away. I plotted a novel about a Honduran-American girl. The Well celebrated their first “Worship-versary.” I struggled with children’s Bible stories. Corey brought home a new kitten, Tegus. I turned 35. And…

Current Books: This weekend, I finished Ginny Moon by Benjamin Ludwig and The Sound of Gravel by Ruth Wariner. Gravel was absolutely heartbreaking. I started Because I Am Furniture by Thalia Chaltas last night, and I have the newest Louise Penny book, Glass Houses, to start this week. Current Playlist: Mostly audio books, but I…
