Thursday Thought: Fearful World, Courageous Choice

No one likes being afraid. I’m not talking about that adrenaline rush, thrill related fear that you get from riding a roller coaster, bungee jumping, or going on a date. I’m referring to capital F fear. The kind of fear that makes your heart pound, your vision narrow and your muscles twitch with anticipation. There’s not a person on this earth who enjoys the sensation of genuinely believing they are in mortal peril.

2019 Top Reads: The Guernsey Literary and Potato Peel Pie Society

This read came to me in the best way possible. My dear, dear cousin sent me this book in the mail with a letter declaring that I needed to read it as soon as possible and write her back with my thoughts. The sheer brilliance of sending it with such a letter will become abundantly clear in a moment.

Thursday Thought: From Where the Ground Feels Good

I’ve spent a lot of time this week thinking about a Bible story that never was. Thank goodness it never was. We’re all the better for it.

2019 Top Reads: Gates of Fire

If there was any book that kept me awake thinking late at night long after I’d finished it, it was this book. Ask the people in my life that I was texting in all caps the minute I finished.

Thursday Thought: The Price of Easy

Let’s talk about a man named Gideon. When Gideon shows up on the scene Israel is, to put it lightly, a complete mess. They’re making the same mistake that they have countless times up to this point. It seems like every time God sends someone to save them from themselves they hold it together just long enough to get home and start it all over again. It’s not that Israel is in trouble, it’s that Israel has no idea how to stop getting into trouble.

2019 Top Reads: Louisiana's Way Home

Louisiana's Way Home, Kate DiCamillo

I’ll start with this. You can never go wrong with Kate DiCamillo. I’ve loved her work since I was first introduced to Because of Winn Dixie as a kid. It was only in recent years, however, that I’ve explored the rest of her works, some of which have been released only in the last couple of years. This is an author that isn’t going anywhere any time soon and we are all the luckier for that.
