    Three Books for My Spring Reading List (Part Three)

    Earlier this week I shared about two books that are on my Spring Reading List. You can read about them here: Platform: Get Noticed in a Noisy World by Michael Hyatt and More Than Enchanting by Jo Saxton. The third book is by my friend Noel Yeatts. Noel inspires me every single time I’m around her. Awake: Doing a [...]

    Three Books for My Spring Reading List (Part 2)

    Yesterday I shared the first of three books that are on my Spring Reading List. (Read my post about Platform: Get Noticed in a Noisy World by Michael Hyatt.) More Than Enchanting is the second book on my list, from Jo Saxton of 3DM. Jo is a phenomenal speaker with a heart for helping others learn what it [...]

    Three Books for My Spring Reading List

    It’s been unseasonably warm in Lynchburg this winter. Daffodils in full bloom tell me it’s time to think about my Spring Reading List–even though I have unread books in bookcases, on my nightstand, and on my Peter’s Kindle. I’m “in the middle” of reading more books than I can recall at the moment but three books have [...]

    I’m Buying Rumors of Water. Today.

    I’m buying Rumors of Water, the latest book by L. L. Barkat. Today. Why? Two Three Reasons. In non-technical terms, there’s some weird book-buying algorithm thingee that promotes books to the top of best seller lists if they sell a bunch of books on launch day. Today is that day. Because L. L. is a friend, I’d [...]

    Inspired by Joy: Greasy Spoon Gourmet

    I never claimed to enjoy cooking – too much baggage. But recently, I’ve been inspired by Joy, the main character in Dining With Joy by my friend Rachel Hauck. It’s a great summer read set in the lovely town of Beaufort, South Carolina. Joy finds herself in a precarious situation. Her father, a cooking show [...]

    Zappos is So Enchanting

    I’m a long-time fan of Zappos for numerous reasons. They’re customer focused. They’re fun! But it wasn’t until I read Enchantment by Guy Kawasaki that I realized Zappos is also trustworthy. According to Kawasaki, “Zappos is built on trust – two-way trust, actually.” Customers trust Zappos’ money-back guarantee with free shipping (both ways) and Zappos [...]

    The Simplify Journey: Focus

    The porcelain oven top was scattered with bread crumbs this morning, not the size Hansel and Gretel left as a trail in the forest. Rather, the size that comes from someone buttering toast on top of the stove and leaving the remains. A quick wipe of the stove top would mean the kitchen was all [...]

    My Summer Reading List is Getting Out of Control

    There’s a lot of talk this week among my colleagues at High Calling Blogs about Summer Reading Lists. Frankly, I’m feeling a little tremendously guilty. First, I can only legitimately check off one of the books from my Spring Reading Thing List. I finished “Unquenchable Worshipper,” but I’m not sure if I get full credit [...]

    My Nightstand Reads

    If you’re familiar with MBTI styles, I’m an ENFP. What that means for this post is that I typically read more than one book at a time, something that seems impossible and even ludicrous for someone who is a J, like my husband. That being said, here’s a list of what I’m currently reading: Courageous [...]
