Sharing Saturday: Books that Hook You

In our last day of learning more about the joys of reading, I’d like to include an article that gives tantalizing snippets of books that will hook you (and make you want to drop everything and read)! If these don’t catch your fancy, there’s always infinite possibilities of books that will keep you inundated in…

Strength Training

I have learned recently that no matter how much I run, I am not seeing a lot of results in my physical health. I have started eating out less (mainly because I want to save money), but I would like to see more muscle on my body, especially in my arms and stomach. My legs look…

Books, Books, Books (pt. 4): Young Adult Books–for Adults!

I read a favorite YA book at the beginning of this year called, The Sun is Also a Star, by Nicola Yoon, and read it in one day. Since then I have realized that reading YA books are sometimes even more profound than adult books that I read. They seem focus more on the personal character development…

Books, Books, Books (pt. 3): For the Reluctant Readers

Today I am focused on those who say, “But I just don’t like to read!” I hope by the end of this, I will have convinced you to give some type of reading a try.  First of all, here are some reasons to spend just TWENTY minutes reading. Some of you are not students, I…

Books, Books, Books (pt. 2): Get Sucked In!

Do you ever have one of those books that you get so caught up in you forget that you live in the real world? They’re all of those memes but I see all the time, but this one really has me! That’s what I do with most books actually. I like to escape into another…

Books, Books, Books (pt. 1): Book Lovers Tag

I would like to learn more about YOU! Of course, I’m going to focus on books this week, but those who aren’t huge book fans, I have a couple hints for you as the week progresses. Here’s a bit about me, and I would love to hear more about how and what you read. Feel…

Running streak completed

 Made it through day 81. Total miles: 235.5 I didn’t make it up to my 100 days, but after Peru I’m going to try again. There’s a good reason, but I don’t think I want to give any excuse on here. That gives me a couple weeks to continue running and start doing more strength…

Relationships (pt. 4): I Was Made for This

I have more than one Bible in my house. The thought struck me today as I was packing for vacation. One of my Bibles I had just placed near the top of my suitcase as I sat down to study my life group lesson (a small group that we have at our church on Sunday mornings). Since…

Relationships (pt. 3): Community

Community might be one of the most important things in staying established and putting down roots. I first began thinking about this in a conversation with my aunt. Because of her husband’s job, they moved around a lot, but she mentioned something to me that I haven’t forgotten. She introduced me to the fact that…

Relationships (pt. 2): Your Other Half

Now let’s get to the nitty-gritty relationships: boyfriends and girlfriends. These are extremely sticky because these relationships are less like family and more like REALLY close friends. You choose to not only be friends with this person for a season in your life, but sometimes for a lengthy time in your life. And you keep…

Relationships (pt. 1): Reality or Virtual Reality?

Because I live in twenty-first century America, I am under the assumption that I need my phone for practically everything. Nowadays, our phone serves for one of many devices that will function more or less exactly like a computer, only in a more convenient way. Even for me it is hard to detach myself from some electronic…
