Goodness gracious, this may have been one of the most exciting months of my life! I know it’s been pretty quiet on the blog front, but it’s been jam-packed with raw living…and it’s been incredible.
Let’s take a peek.:)
Things worth remembering
- Releasing my first poetry book!
- going on a quest to pick up furniture with my brother
- packaging and mailing out preorders of aforementioned poetry book – I so enjoyed getting to think about all of the people who would be receiving a copy of This Will Not Last!
- making toast at the first sibling bonfire of the year
- Sharing a Christian Seder meal with family and dear friends
- Not blowing away in some pretty high winds
- Navigating airports and lengthy layovers on my own and realizing it wasn’t as hard as I thought it would be
- Spending a week talking and adventuring and building relationships with like-minded writers on the Glory Writers retreat! I want to do a full post dedicated to covering this event, so stay tuned!

What I’ve been reading
Love Comes Softly – Janette Oke
I know, I am a fierce critic of the romance genre, but I devoured this book in two days! There was so much solid character development, and of course a bit of heartache. I’m not the biggest fan of Janette Oke’s writing style, but after I got over that I couldn’t put the book down. I definitely recommend it!
White Stallion of Lipizza – Marguerite Henry
I love Marguerite Henry’s books! I hadn’t read one in the longest time, so it’s been fun to pick this one up again.
“There are far, far greater things ahead than any we leave behind.” – C.S. Lewis
From the journal
Today is not your day. It’s God’s. Use it accordingly.
And yet I praise You, Father, because You know best, and even in the broken valley You are the restorer of my soul.
What made your April memorable? I’d love to hear in the comments!
