5 Posts and 5 Favorite Comments
If we keep avoiding people who disagree with us, how will we ever come back together? Let’s relearn how to talk together.
“I remind myself often that we are all God’s children, and that we should treat one another with respect and dignity. I do wish things weren’t so polarized right now, but with God’s help, we can recover and truly be one nation under God.”
If you don’t already love nonfiction books, here are 5 reasons on this blog post for you to add nonfiction to your to-read list. Plus a book suggestion for each category.
From Literary Feline:
“I like to be inspired by my reading and find that in both fiction and nonfiction. I enjoy historical fiction and when I come across a character that existed in real life, I will often do a bit of research to find out more about that person in their real-life. More often than not, I am more impressed with the real person. Sometimes I like to read about someone’s struggle or journey and gain perspective about my own life that maybe I was missing or needed illuminated, whether similar or completely different. And I just plain love to learn new things and expand my worldview.”
Who is avoiding your table? When we make others uncomfortable, they’ll sit elsewhere. Learn to be a safe place. Ideas in the post.
“As a believer in Christ, I long for us (believers) to truly live out His mission, and ours, to make room at the table for EVERYONE. May we purposefully strive ‘for everyone to be invited. To feel welcomed. To feel at home.’”
I share 5 reasons in this post about why I love being a grandparent. I’m still a newbie, but I’m loving it.
“My grandmother used to wear polyester pants with creases sewn in. For years, that’s what I associated with being a grandmother. Luckily, they are no longer required!”
In this post I share how I decide what to read next, plus some books recommended to me from #nonficnov.
“I have a couple hundred hard copy books on my TBR shelves. I have placed them in the order I want to read them. Although, admittedly, that order changes from time to time. 😉 I also take note of what blogging friends have recommended, and if the book is on a topic that resonates with me or that I have been pondering, I’ll pick up that book and put it at the front of the pile.”
