Amazon Favorites

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, but if you click one of my links to go there instead of simply going to, 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 Kindle Paperwhite Shiatsu Neck and Back Massager with Soothing Heat Revlon One-Step Hair Dryer & Volumizer Hot Air Brush

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’s $9.99 per month and includes unlimited, ad-free access to songs with unlimited skips. Example: after seeing Come From Away on Broadway this 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 before the end of the year and you’ll get 4 months for less than a dollar — total. Click here for the $0.99 deal.

And since I mentioned my Kindle Paperwhite, if you don’t already have Kindle Unlimited, it’s completely free right now. You’ll have unlimited access to over 1 million titles, unlimited access to audiobooks, and can browse popular (brand new) magazines. Click here for 3 free months and see if it’s worth it! It’s really easy to cancel, if not.

Even If Not: Living, Loving, and Learning in the in BetweenAnd — of course — I’d love if you considered buying a copy of my book for a loved one this Christmas!

If you find yourself in between one thing and another, changing from who you used to be into who you are becoming, how will you live in the messy, beautiful middle? And what if the middle pages hold storylines that wound and surprise? Is God with us on those pages, too?

In Even If Not, Kaitlyn Bouchillon invites you to let go of trying to figure out the ending of your story and instead lean into the faithfulness of God. With honest and vulnerable storytelling from her own in betweens, Kaitlyn encourages you to say – no matter what page of the story you find yourself on – that although you believe God could come through how you’re asking, you’ll trust Him… even if not.
