hello...i'm back!

Hey friends!
Sorry for the lack of blogging lately. I unintentionally took a blogging break and found it quite nice + refreshing! 

I'll pick up blogging again very soon! I have lots of posts in my draft folder as well as photo sessions/photo shoots from last year that I can't wait to share with you! 

Until I begin blogging again...I'd like to hear form YOU! What have you been doing to stay busy? Have you enjoyed this wintery {or not so wintery!} weather? What is your favorite verse of the week?

Have a blessed week!

10 books i want to read in 2017

As I was thinking about different things I'd like to accomplish in 2017, a stack of books hiding in my bed room came to mind. If you know me well, you know that I tend to take several months {err, years} to actually read and finish a book. And I tend to start more than one book at a time {can anyone else relate to this?!}. 

So I thought it would be a good idea to actually finish some of the books I started last year and read some new ones that I've heard about. Sometimes reading can be hard for me to actually focus and stick with it, but I truly love learning and being encouraged by what the authors have to share.

Here is my list of books to read in 2017:
1. Trust or Control by Dorcus Stutzman

2. Crazy Love by Francis Chan

3. Don't Waste Your Life by John Piper

4. A Young Woman's Walk with God by Elizabeth George

5. Girl Defined: God's Radical Design for Beauty, Femininity, & Identity by Kristen Clark & Bethany Baird

6. Lies Young Women Believe: And the Truth that Sets them Free by Nancy Leigh DeMoss & Dannah Gresh

7. True Woman 101 - Divine Design by Mary A. Kassian & Nancy Leigh DeMoss

7. Sacred Singleness by Leslie Ludy

8. A Place of Quiet Rest by Nancy Leigh DeMoss

9. Choosing Gratitude by Nancy Leigh DeMoss

10. Uninvited: Living Loved When You Feel Less Than, Left Out, And Lonely by Lysa Terkeurst 

I'll probably add more to the list. 

Please tell me if you'd heard of or read any of these books! What are your thoughts on them? What are some of your favorite books/authors? Also, do you have any kind of reading plan that helps you get books read faster?
