It’s been a hot minute, I know. Let’s do a quick recap!
In March of this year (2022) I released my poetry collection, These Bones Will Sing. If you haven’t had a chance to pick up a copy, please do! It’s now available on my website, Amazon, and if you’re local to me, you can buy a signed copy directly from me! Just send me an email or message me on Facebook.
What I Did On My Summer Vacation
I read! After the book release I took some time to read. I read novels, non-fiction, Bible-studies, and engaged deeper with my church as we read through the Bible together as a congregation. A few of my favorite books for this year so far are There’s No Such Thing As Bad Weather by Linda Akeson McGurk, Meet Me in the Margins by Melissa Ferguson, And Then There Were None by Agatha Christie, and Midnight in Austenland by Shannon Hale. My go-to for Bible studies is She Reads Truth, but I’m currently reading The Armor of God by Priscilla Shirer.
The kids were signed up for various sports and camps so we were quite busy. I took a trip to both Indy and Maryland to visit my college besties, and Jake and I recently returned from a small group trip to Gatlinburg.
The market had a busy summer season as well. They’re now open year-round so be sure to check them out for your pumpkins, apples, cider, and thanksgiving turkeys.
Back in the Saddle
I know it’s been since the spring since I posted anything on the blog, and I apologize for my absence. If you follow me on Facebook or Instagram you’ll notice I’ve made a few posts but nothing creatively speaking. I needed a break and I’m glad I took it.
That said, creativity and the urge to write have slowly been creeping back into my spirit. God has been moving in my life and in the lives of those around me, and I can’t wait to share all that He has done and taught me over the past couple of months. I’ve been storing up words for awhile, so get ready for an outpouring.
I’m excited to be back here in this space. Thanks for hanging in there with me.
