Few of my favorite things
Melanie Shankle’s writing is lighthearted, funny, insightful, and encouraging. One evening while I was reading this book full of hilarious insights about marriage, my husband asked me what was so funny as I kept laughing out loud. My husband was also reading a marriage book, Sacred Marriage. An excellent marriage book that we would recommend. The irony was we were both reading marriage books that were on different ends of the spectrum. Stephen was reading a very deep and spiritual marriage book while I was reading a very lighthearted marriage book. I didn’t think he would find Melanie’s stories as funny coming out of the deep thinking of Gary Thomas. So, if you are looking for a profound, thought provoking book on marriage read Gary Thomas. If you are looking for a funny, lighthearted book of marriage stories, read Melanie Shankle!
Hello Baby! One of my absolute favorite things about being pregnant is feeling our baby girl move and kick inside of me. It’s crazy to think that Gracie is in there, moving around, and we will meet her in a couple weeks. While there are times at night that I tell her to quiet down so her mama can sleep, I love feeling her every movement!
I love anything banana! While I have my favorite banana bread recipe, I was looking on pinterest for an option that would be healthy and delicious. I enjoyed making these yummy muffins!
I first heard Michael Jr at the Leadership Summit a couple years ago. He is so funny! I love his jokes and I find it refreshing to hear clean comedy. If you are in need of a good laugh, check him out!
I have been listening to more podcasts lately as I’m working on projects around our home or going for long walks in the evening. I recently discovered this fun podcast...
