Loch Lomond and The Power of Place

One of the things I love about reading is that, often without meaning to, I find similar themes and ideas popping up in the texts I’m reading for pleasure and for work. Most recently this happened during my preparations for this year’s Spring Term trip to Scotland and my time planning and teaching the British […]

Abiding in Christ by Andrew Murray

Abiding Poems: Part 1

Often I process what I’m learning through poetry–here are my first three poems inspired by Andrew Murray’s book Abiding in Christ.

What I Read in January

With the end of January in sight, I though it was time for me to share the books I’ve been reading this month.

2018 November Poetry Challenge: Week 4

Well, everyone, I’m happy to say that I’ve made it to the end of November’s Poem-a-Day challenge! It’s definitely been difficult, but I managed to write thirty new poems over the course of a month. I’ll probably share another post later with all the things I’ve learned over the last thirty days, but for now […]

2018 November Poetry Challenge: Week 3

Happy Thanksgiving weekend, everybody! I’m here with seven more rough drafts of poems written off of prompts from the Writer’s Digest poem-a-day challenge. This week’s were difficult, and I think some of them are my least favorite of the month so far. That being said, I have beaten my record from last year, when I only […]

2018 November Poetry Challenge: Week 2

Here we go–round two of the 2018 November Poem-A-Day challenge. It’s been hard to write each poem within the 24-hour window, but I’m hanging in there. I hope you enjoy this next installment. Day 8: Poem that Hints at Something “Clickbait” What happens next will leave you in tears– will shock you– you’ll never believe […]

Last year during November I participated for the first time in Robert Lee Brewer’s poem-a-day challenge over at Writer’s Digest. If you enjoy poetry or a little creative challenge, it’s not too late to join in […]

Review: The Defining Decade by Meg Jay

A few months ago, when I had time to be more disciplined about blog posts, I kept to a fairly regular schedule of posting new reviews on Thursdays and other literary content on Mondays. However, you might have noticed that the number of posts on the blog has dropped sharply in the last few months! […]

12 Months of Books: September Suggestions

September means school, football, and the promise of cooler temperatures. And even though here in Georgia we’ve been back in school for almost a month, in many places the school year is just beginning. That’s why the September theme for our reading challenge this year is “Back to School.” In honor of the kids everywhere […]

12 Months of Books: August Suggestions

This month’s theme for our 12-month reading challenge is “Lazy Days,” but for me the month of August is anything but lazy! I picked this theme to focus in on one of my new favorite ways of discovering great stories: audiobooks. With school starting back, there’s no way I’ll be able to read as many […]
