The ways God provides might not look how we expect. When the bank account looks empty and the cupboards the same we pray for a raise but God provides with a basket of fresh produce from a friend’s garden. When we get laid off and we pray for a new job and God provides with unemployment. When we want to attend an event and pray for our budget to work this month and God provides with a scholarship. Not how we expect, but provisions nonetheless.
I’ve been on a book roll this month and wanted to share a round up and quick blurb about the books I’ve finished in August and those I’m still working on. I’m really enjoying having several books going on at once because I can pick up what I’m in the mood for each day rather than needing to get all the way through one book before moving on to a new type.
This spring I had the honor of being on the launch team for Lisa-Jo Baker’s newest book, Never Unfriended. This book means so much to me and now I’m super excited to tell you about the free online Bible study based on her bestselling book.

I honestly hadn’t thought much about praying for the types of character traits I’d like to see in my children before we had them. I thought that modeling the type of behavior we expected would be enough… until it wasn’t. That darn sin nature is like a default setting and the lying, selfish, unkind behavior oozes out constantly.
What is the difference between pretty and beauty? For many, the words are one in the same. They both describe the way something looks, that it is pleasing to the eye. But what if there was actually a large difference in these words. A difference that can change the way you perceive yourself and what you strive to be.
I walked into the room and immediately wanted to walk back out. I had already dropped both my boys off in their respective rooms and listened carefully for their cries. It was a new place for all three of us and I’m not sure who felt more uncomfortable. I at least knew one person but she was busy with others and hadn’t noticed me.
I sat alone at a table and picked up a piece of paper to keep myself busy. What else could I do in a room full of women that seemed to know each other already?
Joanna Gaines, I am not. My home will never be featured on HGTV as a style to copy, unless the look you are going for is an eclectic mix of LEGO and dirty socks. I’ve become more comfortable with the lived in look because it’s real and, I’m going to let you in on a little secret, so am I.
I’ve found a new author to consume this month! I’ve finished three books in just over a week and I’m anxiously waiting to grab books four and five in this exciting series.
