After receiving requests to make it really easy to find and click through my Amazon affiliate links, I’ve created this page just for you!
Everything linked below will take you straight to Amazon. If you click one of my links to go there instead of simply going to Amazon.com, I’ll receive a few pennies for every dollar you spend — at no additional cost to you.
It’s Amazon’s way of saying “thanks for sending a customer our way” and it’s my way of partially offsetting the cost to send emails to subscribers. More and more bloggers are moving to sites that require readers/listeners to pay in order to receive weekly or monthly content — and I totally get why. Sending emails to subscribers costs a whole lot of money every month.
But for as long as I possibly can, I want to create and provide great content for you without charging a dime.
Every penny made from you clicking through these links before placing your Amazon order will go straight toward that monthly expense.
Just for fun, I’ve linked a few personal recommendations below as you’re Christmas shopping this season. Advent resources, items I love and use multiple times a week, and favorite recent reads.
Thank you so, so much for clicking through my Amazon affiliate links before making your Amazon purchase.

items I use every week:
One Line A Day: A Five-Year Memory Book :: I’m on year 5 with this little book and it’s one of my most treasured possessions. This would make a great gift for anyone.
Kindle Paperwhite (waterproof) :: I reach for my Kindle Paperwhite all the time in my daily life, but I appreciate it most when I’m traveling (so many titles in one space, and no more saving room in the suitcase for books).
Shiatsu Neck and Back Massager with Soothing Heat :: Praise the Lord for this invention. Truly. It has saved me so many times! If you frequently get knots in your shoulders or neck, you will be so very thankful for this. Trust me.
Revlon One-Step Hair Dryer & Volumizer Hot Air Brush :: Listen, I’m not about to pretend to be a fashion blogger. But I’m telling you, this works and it works well. I have really think hair, and it cuts my drying time in half, smooths my hair, and adds volume all at the same time.
Also worth noting: Amazon Music Unlimited is one of my favorite things ever. My brother gave me this as a Christmas gift years ago and I haven’t gone back. It includes unlimited, ad-free access to tens of millions of songs — with unlimited skips. Example: after seeing Come From Away on Broadway last year, I downloaded the entire soundtrack to my phone at no cost (instead of paying to download the songs via iTunes). This has saved me SO much money and I use it every single day.
If you want to try it out, they’re running a special promo. Sign up now and you’ll receive one month free (you can cancel any time).
And since I mentioned my Kindle Paperwhite, if you don’t already have Kindle Unlimited, it’s completely free right now. You’ll receive unlimited access to over 1 million titles, unlimited access to audiobooks, and can browse popular (brand new) magazines. Click here for a free month (or two months for $0.99) and see if it’s worth it! It’s really easy to cancel, if not.
And — of course — I’d love if you considered buying a copy of my book for a loved one this Christmas! Here’s the Amazon book description:
Is God good when life isn’t? Is He kind when things fall apart — or never even happen in the first place? Where is God when you’re living a chapter of your story that you never would have chosen?
Life often looks different than what we hoped, planned, or expected. The phone rings in the middle of the night, the test results come back, or the relationship falls apart and we’re left disappointed, lonely, heartbroken and disillusioned.
After a brain tumor diagnosis at age seventeen, Kaitlyn Bouchillon came face to face with the first of what would be several “even if not” moments. It’s one thing to say God is able. But when the rubber meets the road, will we still say He’s good even if He doesn’t come through like we know that He could?
With honest and vulnerability from her own in betweens, Kaitlyn will help you:
- Choose hope for tomorrow when today feels like a question mark.
- Find strength to believe even when you can’t see and faith to hold on when it all feels too far gone.
- Shift your suspicion that God isn’t kind or present to the truth found in Scripture that on every single page of the story, God is with us and working all things for our good.
- Discover truths to hold onto when doubt threatens to overwhelm.
- Begin to say “even if not” in the messy middle of your own in betweens.
