Books are one of my favorite things in the world. I’m finishing up #37 of the year right now, and I’ve listed my Top 10 below in no particular order. (Well, okay, if I’m honest the last one on the list might be my favorite.) Maybe you can find some to add to your 2022 reading list. (Click on the book cover to go buy the book.) MODERN FICTION: This one is very character driven and not generally the type of book that I read, but I thought it was fantastic. Eleanor’s character is quirky, socially awkward and completely likeable….

It’s my 20th anniversary. It doesn’t feel like we’re old enough for 20 years of marriage, but the calendar says it’s true, so we’ll go with it.

The flowers are gone, but I’m keeping the card forever. The writing part of my life was challenging this fall. I diligently researched and interviewed and wrote and worked on a lot of things that have yet to come to fruition. So many hours of brain-power with so little to show for it. Between September and December, I submitted a lot of work (devotions, articles, queries) to various places. From those submissions I’ve received: 9 rejections (3 came in one day) 6 pieces still under consideration 2 “resend this to us in a few months” emails 3 Acceptance emails (3…
