Book Review: 7

My birthday was last week and I asked my husband for the book by Jen Hatmaker. I actually asked for two copies one for me and one for my sister. I started reading the introduction and to be honest it isn’t what I was expecting at all. BUT I do like that she wrote the book in real time instead of recounting everything she went through. So, I decided that I am going to do the occasional update on the book as my “book review” for it. So far, I am excited to read through it and excited to get inspired to clean everything out of our house.

Stay tuned!

If you’ve already read it, I would love to hear your perspective on it!


OR if you haven’t and you want to join in reading it, I’d love to read through it with you too and hear your thoughts along the way.


Book Review: Design the Life You Love


I received Design the Life You Love quite some time ago. To be honest, when I got it I was so excited! I love the self-development books! But when I opened it, there were tons of pictures (drawings) and it turned me off. I know, books with pictures are appealing to a lot of people, but I wanted the meat and potatoes!

A few months later, my awesome husband cleaned off my night stand (I have been pregnant and sick for a while so he is being the best). Let’s be honest I’m a messy person, I would’ve just left it for a while and it was driving him nuts. He’s still the best though. Afterwards, there was a giant stack of books and that one was on top of the pile. I picked it up and actually carried it around for a few days before I looked at it again. I read the first few pages and then started to understand the concept the writer had come up with for truly designing your life, from a designer’s viewpoint, and I fell in love. I actually use some of the practices that she teaches in my classroom, now. It is wonderful and a completely different way of thinking, which people like me need sometimes.

I encourage everyone to read it, even if you don’t agree with everything the author says, try out some of her methods. I promise you won’t regret it!
