What I’ve Been Reading Lately

Y’all know I love books. I’m constantly in the middle of three or four and, let’s just be honest, there are stacks of books piled high all over my room.

Here are three recent reads that you might be interested in.

In addition to my thoughts on each read, I’ve linked to where you can find more information and/or order the book.


Grace Like Scarlett: Grieving with Hope after Miscarriage and LossGrace Like Scarlett: Grieving with Hope after Miscarriage and Loss :: Adriel Booker

My thoughts: As someone who has not experienced a miscarriage, I picked up Adriel’s book for two reasons: 1) to support a writing friend 2) to listen, learn, and hopefully be able to better support and encourage those in my life who have miscarried.

I can only imagine how helpful, honest, and life-giving this book would be to those who have miscarried. I found it to be all of those things as well. Adriel vulnerably shares her story, invites the reader in like a friend would do, doesn’t shy away from difficult questions and conversations, and ultimately offers hope in the middle of it all.




Everyday Holy by Melanie ShankleEveryday Holy: Finding a Big God in the Little Moments :: Melanie Shankle

My thoughts: For those who have read Melanie’s previous books (or her blog), this new devotional feels like a natural extension of the humor and wisdom Melanie has offered at every turn.

For those who have never heard of Melanie Shankle, this devotional will likely be a breath of fresh air. Melanie is funny, honest, kind, and has a way of taking normal or “little” things and pointing to God in the midst. She isn’t pulling spiritual meanings out of thin air, but instead helping us open our find as we find God in the little moments.




Embraced by Lysa TerKeurstEmbraced: 100 Devotions to Know God’s Love Right Where You Are :: Lysa TerKeurst

My thoughts: If your heart has been broken, if you’re currently struggling, if you’re holding doubts and questions… or if you’re looking for something to give a friend who falls into one of those “categories” — consider this new devotional from Lysa TerKeurst.

Full of Scripture, prayer prompts and encouragement, this beautiful book would be a meaningful gift or a great book to keep on your nightstand and refer back to time and again.
