Where We Belong

by Lynn Austin


where we belong


I’ve been a longtime fan of historical fiction author Lynn Austin’s work, and in the past year I’ve had the privilege of meeting with her in person a few times. I adore her novels and it’s been fun getting a behind the scenes glimpse into the process of this book’s birth. Can’t wait to get my hands on a copy!


Free of Me: Why Life is Better When It’s Not About You

by Sharon Hodde Miller


Free of Me by Sharon Hodde Miller


I’ve been reading Sharon Hodde Miller’s work online for quite some time, and she is a solid, biblical thinker and writer. I suspect the themes presented in this book will be uncomfortable in all the best ways, convicting me of my ongoing need to focus less on myself and more on Him. I’d also argue that the American society as a whole needs to hear and digest this important message. So glad Sharon did the hard work of getting these truths in print.


Braving Sorrow Together: The Transformative Power of Faith and Community when Life is Hard

by Ashleigh Slater


book recommendations


Ashleigh Slater was the first editor to accept one of my articles for publication on the website, Ungrind. I really enjoyed her first book, Team Us: Marriage Together, and I look forward to go deep into the message of this important topic. Every day that I look at the news headlines, it seems there is more sorrow, more tears, more tragedy. What a timely topic to address and discuss as the body of Christ.


A Moment to Breathe: 365 Devotions that Meet You in Your Everyday Mess

by (in)courage contributors


A Moment to Breathe


The (in)courage community has a new book! This looks like a beauty, and I know a number of the delightful women who have contributed to this volume of 365 devotions. Can’t wait to read my friends’ words and be encouraged to take a moment to breathe amidst the busyness.


Fiercehearted: Live Fully, Love Bravely

by Holley Gerth


Fiercehearted by Holley Gerth


I’ve read a number of raving reviews of this latest release from Holley Gerth, many of which are saying this is her best book yet. Grateful for Holley’s faithfulness to share truth in this generation.
