On the nightstand


I am barely into this book and already I have filled a handfull of notecards with quotes and passages.
It is challenging and encouraging all at once. I want to inhale it. 


A new all-time favorite. Maybe in my top 5 favorite fiction books ever. Right now Sweet Man is reading it, and when he is through we are going to read Animal, Vegetable, Miracle together.




 I loved this book written by mother and daughter. So much inspiration and encouragement found between these pages. So much honesty about the creative process, road blocks, and finding breadcrumbs along the way.




I know this is a standard for writers, but I just now finished it. I think I was somewhat afraid of it. Afraid I would read it and think, "well crap. I am not a writer like I thought I was."
Instead I found myself crying while I read certain passages, thinking "yes, that's it exactly." The tug to write that much stronger. Oh goodness.

So what are you reading??

blessings!

  1. Thank you for reminding me that I want to read the book by the Kidds. I'd forgotten. Now I want to read the Jesus Freak, too. Great reads!
