How do you choose how many stars to give a book? What does each star level represent for you?For me, one-star books are DNFs. Now, I don’t think I’ve ever been required to review a DNF book, so I’m not sure I’ve ever given a book one star. I don’t like writing not-positive reviews. 😂If… Continue reading Rating Books
Pause. Take a breath. Slow down, dear friend.Recently, I realized how I’ve fallen into rushing from one thing to the next. At work, I’m speed walking wherever I need to be, which is fine then.

Your car is powered by explosions. The world that God has created is amazing. Don’t… Continue reading Magic in the Ordinary

What is your opinion on books being made into TV shows or movies? I actually hadn’t thought a ton about this until the other day when someone asked me my opinion. I’d just basically had the “the book was better” mindset. Now, I still think that the book is better the majority of the time.… Continue reading Book Adaptations: Yay or Nay?
Your Words Have Power
Your words carry weight. We all know the phrase, “the pen is mightier than the sword.” And what do pens do? They write words. Words, both spoken and written, have power. They can build up. They can tear down. They can encourage and inspire. They can depress and crush us. Don’t underestimate the power of… Continue reading Your Words Have Power
As always, my holiday blogging hiatus ended up going longer than I planned. I blame that on having to get back into my writing routine and figure out a new schedule. I put my fiction/book writing over blog writing. But I didn't forget about the blog in my absence! I've got a bunch of book… Continue reading I’m Back!
