God is in the French Fries

I’m getting ready to head out the door to go on another road trip (seriously one of my favorite things ever), so today’s post may be shorter than normal.  I haven’t written posts ahead this month and have really just gotten up each morning to write them for the most part, so please excuse the chaos.  I dearly hope you’re intrigued by the title of this post because it’s one of the best ones I’ve come up with so far (in my humble opinion).

A ‘Lit’ Update (yes, I cringed at myself)

I try to post book-related things on Wednesdays, and I haven’t finished a book this week, so I don’t have one to post about specifically, but I decided to write a post about what I’m currently reading and what I’m looking forward to reading next.  I usually do this just at the end/beginning of a year, but since summer’s a great time for reading, it’s always useful to know some good books to pick up.

Lions & Lizards & Lies (8/12)

It’s Tuesday again, so if you’ve been following me for a least a week, you know what that means! 😉 If you’re new, every Tuesday, I post my notes from church on Sunday.  I’m a part of the Elevation Church eFam, and I like to share my notes so that those who haven’t had time to watch the sermon can still stay in the loop!  I actually had the opportunity to make the trip to Charlotte, North Carolina this past weekend and experience the beginning of the new series, Triggered, which was so awesome! I also live-streamed it Sunday, which you can also do via this link.

Another Update/Road Trippin’ Part 5

I normally try to do a devotional post on Mondays, but last week and this week, I’ve been more in the “update” mode.  Perhaps it’s because I haven’t written all these posts out ahead of time like I did previously this summer.  You may notice that this post isn’t coming out in the 9 o’clock hour, as I aim for my posts to normally do.  That’s because this has been a spur-of-the-moment week this week.  Incredibly spontaneous, it’s been a week juxtaposing “Be still” and “Go”.

A Look Backwards and Forwards

A lot has happened in this past month! On Monday I updated you all on the spiritual and emotional side of that, but today I wanted to highlight some cool accomplishments and hopes for the future.

Redeeming Love

Perhaps one of the most-loved pieces of Christian fiction, especially of the romance genre, Redeeming Love has been recommended to me over and over again.  I finally read it last month and wanted to share my thoughts with you all!

The story is a loose parallel to the biblical account of Hosea, except it is set during the California gold rush in the 1840-50s.  This fictional account gives a personal look at how God is faithful to us, time and again, no matter how often we leave Him or how far we run.  Its power and timelessness lies in the emotional impact of the story and how relatable the characters’ feelings are.  Its draw and effect were not lost on me; I sat down and read the whole novel in one afternoon (quite the feat since it’s around 450 pages).  I, without hesitation, join the line of women recommending this book.  It does have some mature themes and scenes, so I’d limit it to mature teenagers and up, but the message of God’s love, faithfulness, and pursuit is so relevant to all of us.

I’ve had this book sitting on the bookshelves for years, so the only incentive in writing this review was to share the story with you all! If you do end up buying it through the link above, there’s two things you’d ought to know: 1) I’d love to know your thoughts on the story, so please comment them on this post! and 2) I will receive a small percentage from your purchase of the book, but it doesn’t increase your price at all, just helps to support me.

xo,

love first, love well, love anyway-4
