The Making of Biblical Womanhood review

My faith tradition doesn’t have the same concepts of “Biblical Womanhood” as many I have read about before, as well as discussed in this book. I hadn’t heard of a “Proverbs 31 woman” until recently – a woman modeled after the scripture verses in that chapter – which can be viewed as both a sweetContinue reading “The Making of Biblical Womanhood review”

Using the Day One Journal App

Are you someone who journals? I used to journal very regularly in my childhood and teens, and now somewhat sporadically in my adulthood. Having a regular social media presence means that many milestones and events in my life are still being documented, but sometimes it’s nice to record your more private thoughts. Sometimes it’s niceContinue reading “Using the Day One Journal App”

Laziness Does Not Exist review

I picked up this book based on the description. I recently read Can’t Even: How Millennials Became the Burnout Generation, and these two books touched on very similar themes that counter a popular narrative that “kids today” don’t know what hard work is. And it’s not even just Millennials who deal with this (though IContinue reading “Laziness Does Not Exist review”

Favorite Books of 2020

Well… this certainly was a year, wasn’t it? I remarked on social media recently the dark humor that is watching planner community videos from the end of 2019 and the beginning of 2020 as they set up their new productivity systems. I know I had a nice little planner for my writing life that basicallyContinue reading “Favorite Books of 2020”

Using Evernote in Library Work

I have been a pretty dedicated Evernote user for the past seven years. I used the free version for a while until I had to admit to myself that I used the app enough to warrant a subscription and I haven’t looked back. I don’t think enough people are aware of this awesome app andContinue reading “Using Evernote in Library Work”

How I Use Todoist

I’m actually not sure how many people know this about me, but I’m an organizational junkie. I am obsessed with how people organize tasks, how they plan, what tools they use. Have been for years, but I think what really skyrocketed my interest was stumbling upon the “planner community” of YouTube a few years back.Continue reading “How I Use Todoist”

Jesus and John Wayne by Kristin Kobes Du Mez

This was a fascinating book to pick up. Being a member of a religious faith myself, and having many friends who are involved with religious academia, I’m around many discussions about God and faith and faith culture and how various interpretations of scripture develop. I’m curious about other faiths, and the evangelical community in AmericaContinue reading “Jesus and John Wayne by Kristin Kobes Du Mez”

My Favorite Podcasts

We live in strange times. It’s hard to even unpack that phrase. But we’re all looking to survive and maybe even thrive as we get through this current crisis, and one thing I’ve been particularly grateful for is that my usual podcasts are continuing to release, and some of them are even producing more content. Continue reading “My Favorite Podcasts”
