Has anyone ever mentioned it's tough to keep a regular blog going with bipolar disorder? There are periods of time I'm on my game, everything is great and I can regularly post interesting (at least I think so) blog entries but when I get knocked out for a period of time, it takes me a … Continue reading Keep on keeping on…
Do you read multiple books at a time? Do you forget where you left off sometimes because your little LO pulls bookmarks out of your books? Do you end up reading parts of your book 3-4 times before you realize you already read that part 3-4 times? This is the story of my life for … Continue reading
It can feel so restrictive when you have a blog with specific topics allocated for your writing. Maybe today I want to branch out? Is my "Life" category too generic? I've incorporated my faith in the Life category which you may have noticed, but right now I feel like writing something different. I could talk … Continue reading Bell Let’s Talk Awareness Campaign
Some people like to use a reading plan to read the Bible from cover to cover in a year, there's many ways you can do it. For me, I've found my success in reading from Genesis to Samuel 1 so far has been a desire to know what is in the Bible and a curiousity … Continue reading A Hunger for More…
Along with Deuteronomy (NIV Bible) and C.S. Lewis, I was tackling an amazing book seen in the title (One Thousand Gifts) that I could barely put down. Written in a poetic fashion, this book is not for everyone but I think the message itself is incredible. It starts out with a dare to list, (you … Continue reading One Thousand Gifts by Ann Voskamp Review

Lewis) was an easy read and would have been done in the matter of a day or two had it not been for me misplacing the book in a random place while attending to my littlest one. I lost track of it for about a week but … Continue reading Goodness, Gracious!!

They would often be characterized as frail, weak and sensitive; all in all, pretty pathetic and a burden to people more than anything else. Admittedly, I would smirk as the authors would target these women using sarcastic humour: "Oh my poor nerves, I just … Continue reading “Oh my poor nerves, I just can’t bear it!”
There is great joy in cracking open books from your childhood and re-reading them. I'm not a fan of e-books, I like the smell of a good book and flipping the pages as I move my bookmark along. It gives me wonderful satisfaction! It didn't take me long to choose my box set of the … Continue reading Making a trip to the past.
Over the last few weeks I have been reading Leviticus from the NIV Bible and maybe I'm crazy but it wasn't nearly as bad as other people had said it would be. Repetitive, yes... but I found all the rituals and specific details rather fascinating. Everything must be exact. Precise. From sacrifices to festivals for … Continue reading Time for a trip to the Library! My Library.
