Luke 9

For the text of Luke 9, click here. The chapter opens with Jesus sending out the twelve apostles with "power and authority" as was recounted in Matthew 10 and Mark 6. Jesus is mostly quoted the same, though Matthew is a little more wordy as usual and some of the intention does get a little... Continue Reading →

Wave by Sonali Deraniyagala

Honestly, I was fairly mesmerized by Deraniyagala's story. Like so many others, I can't imagine what she went through and continues to go through. It's a difficult book to review beyond saying that she writes beautifully and candidly and is absolutely mesmerizing. On the one hand, I appreciate all the little details that cry out...

Illustrated Harry Potter 1-4

For the first time in his young life, I've been able to really read with my son. It took a while to get him to the place where he wasn't dreading the experience and I tend to give up after a chapter or two if he does, but then lockdown.... I'm kidding, it wasn't lockdown... Continue Reading →

Luke 8

As National Poetry Month has ended, we return to the Book of Luke for our look at the Bible. As mentioned before, this is a study that I'm doing for two reasons. First, I've never read through the whole Bible before and figure it's a good idea as a Christian in general to understand it... Continue Reading →

Books for the Resistance

I saw today that UN Women posted "A Woman's Place is in the Resistance" on Instagram and it just set my mind reeling. Of course, a woman's place is definitely in the Resistance, but I hadn't originally planned on posting on it. Then I became a little obsessed and here we are. First of all,... Continue Reading →

Books on the Asanas

Knowing what's going on in a pose is still a work in progress for me. Though I learned to queue the typical poses used in a yoga practice and can sequence fairly well, I still struggle with remembering all the exact benefits of the asanas, the Sanskrit names, and the contraindications. I've never taken anatomy... Continue Reading →

May International Days

Here are the UN International Observances for May! Again, I don't have good reading for every single observance, but I will take suggestions from anyone else who does. I have some books on my TBR that some of these could go with but I'd rather not recommend until I've actually read them myself. 2 May... Continue Reading →

Lady Smoke by Laura Sebastian

Lady Smoke is the second book in the Ash Princess Trilogy. For the review of the first book, Ash Princess, click here. This is a great continuation of the story but some of my opinions on this story could spoil the first one, so please don't go any further if you haven't read that one.... Continue Reading →

Psalm 71: Forsake Me Not When My Strength is Spent

Psalm 71 is a psalm of praise for everything God has done for the psalmist while also being a request for His continued support. It swings between the idea that God has always been there for him and that he needs the continued supports a few times and is almost pleading in the feel. Also,... Continue Reading →

A study of yoga and Christianity

I'm currently The Yoga of Jesus and though I'm not far into it, the idea of Christianity and yoga not being complimentary has been something that has always bothered me. Some Christians think of it as being a part of Hinduism or Buddhism, which would detract from practicing Christianity or faith in Christ. Some think... Continue Reading →
