Grace, Eventually: Thoughts on Faith (Anne Lamott)I knew this book would upset me greatly in places (I had seen several other reviews), but I wanted to read it because Anne Lamott has a wonderful writing style and always makes me think. This book is no exception. On the pro side of things, her views on … [Read more…]
I’m not sure, exactly… the days are just slipping by so fast (before Grace’s arrival) and with it, most of my brain cells. I’m struggling, people! *grin* But still, things seem to be going well.

The kids got it this weekend, so now we’re all sort of melting into the furniture — finding a comfortable spot, covering up with a blanket, and dozing … [Read more…]
