While it's far too early to figure out where my reading life will take me in 2019, I have several books that I'm excited to read and have a feeling will be particularly impactful. I want to share them here, and look forward to sharing some hopefully thoughtful reviews with you over these next 12 … Continue reading Books to read in 2019!
I already mentioned that every December I enjoy looking back on the books I read that year and finding (or forming) a narrative for what my reading life told of my life that year, what those books showed about my interior life, or what these books taught me about life and loving others. I wanted … Continue reading A (deeper) look back on my 2018 reading life
I don't always make resolutions for the new year. I love making new goals, and I love actively pursuing them, so on one hand, resolutions are a natural fit with my personality. On the other, I don't feel as though resolutions are necessary, and sometimes I put too much pressure on myself to be "perfect" … Continue reading Remembrances, not resolutions
I made a resolution the other day (suck it, January 1) -- I am no longer going to let my body be a source of stress for me. I had a near-meltdown two weeks ago. Some may call it a meltdown; I'm not sure what an adult meltdown looks like, so I don't know if … Continue reading Choosing my stress
It's been a while since I did one of these! That's because... well, because I haven't been going to the gym. My poor body. The stress and despair of this time of life has finally taken its toll and my body kind of collapsed in on itself a few weeks ago. I took two weeks … Continue reading In-Between Thoughts Thanksgiving Edition 11.19.18
I don't really have a photo for this post so... here's my cat. On my bookshelf. Lurv. I guess since she doesn't have beliefs (other than the importance of being pet at all times), our love will never change? As long as I keep delivering the pets, that is. I'm realizing how much the depth … Continue reading As beliefs change, so do relationships…
I get it, universe. I get it, God. I get it, life. Practicing gratitude is transformational and something I should really work on. It's also hard AF. I'm in this time of life where I feel so wounded but don't have time to heal before the next wound hits. It seems that daily, at least … Continue reading The tension is to be loved, apparently
Anyone else glad the midterm elections are behind us?! I think this, and the fact that Democrats took control of the House, are worth celebrating. Celebrating with pizza. I always celebrate with pizza. (Well, that and champagne. Duh.) Here is a pizza worthy of fall, when pumpkin, sage, and bacon are all in season. (Though … Continue reading Yummiest autumn pizza
As I mentioned earlier, last semester I started and never finished a book on biblical eschatology. It was an interesting book, and full of meaty textual analysis, but ultimately started to feel... pointless? Somewhere along the way I just stopped feeling like it was relevant beyond it being interesting. I couldn't find a reason to … Continue reading Environmental eschatology
Well shoot, I have been incredibly remiss in updating ye olde blog with our most recent podcasts. WHAT HAVE YOU EVEN BEEN DOING WITH YOUR EARBALLS. The biggest thing is that we finished our season on metaphysics. I'm not going to lie -- I'm a little relieved. That is some complicated stuff. As fun as … Continue reading And/Or/Versus podcast updates!
