As the school year winds down, are you starting to look for entertaining and wholesome reads for your children this summer? I have compiled a list of Catholic summer books for kids, broken down by age range (plus a bonus one for Mom).

An Open Book: What I’m Reading This September

An Open Book: What I’m Reading This September

September is here! And I don’t know about you, but this month feels like a mini-new year of sorts. I think it has a lot to do with the new academic year beginning. What says “fresh start” better than opening a new notebook and writing with a newly sharpened #2 pencil? Plus, the beginning of a new season stirs up the desire to change my wardrobe, try a new recipe, and refresh my home’s decor. The beginning of September also…

5 Catholic Novels to Read This Summer

5 Catholic Novels to Read This Summer

As August begins, are you planning one last road trip or weekend getaway to the beach or cabin? Before the kids head back to school, we often desire to soak up the sun and savor the last days of summer. Even if we don’t have school-aged children, we can still have a back-to-school mindset as fall approaches. For autumn seems to be the season when we return to a more organized routine, while summer permits more leisurely activities and lingering moments….

An Open Book: What I’m Reading This August

Happy August, everyone! Can you believe we’ve reached this last month of summer? The kids’ activities are beginning to wind down, and we are gearing up to begin our back-to-school preparations. The supply lists are long, there are shoes and uniforms to purchase, and we have to squeeze in some haircut and dentist appointments, too. Even if it feels like summer is coming to an end, I am still savoring the later mornings, quieter afternoons, and longer evenings. And I…

An Open Book: What I’m Reading This July

An Open Book: What I’m Reading This July

Summer has proven to be a wonderful time to catch up on one of my favorite past-times: reading. Except for one minor hiccup: I am not a fast reader. Therefore, I am never going to read all the books I hope to read in any given amount of time. If I am OK with that, and I think I am, then, yes, summer is a wonderful time to catch up on my reading! In June, I set out to read…

An Open Book: What I’m Reading This June

An Open Book: What I’m Reading This June

It’s been awhile since we’ve had a nice chat about books. The last time I shared what I’ve been reading was back in October. For some reason, 2018 has not started out as my year for reading an impressive list of books. In fact, according to my Goodreads 2018 Reading Challenge, I’ve only read three books in five months. (Yikes!) The thing is, I love books, and I love to read. And now that it is summer, and our family schedule…

I am so honored to be part of the blog tour for Theresa Linden’s new adult novel, Anyone But Him. In one sentence, I can tell you that I LOVED this book! In a few more sentences, I will tell you why. But first, here is a brief synopsis of Anyone But Him: Caitlyn Summer had always followed the straight and narrow path. Her perfect husband would love Jesus more than her and love her because of her love for Jesus. He…
