Make it rain…books…lots and lots of books…

Psst…come closer and I’ll tell you a secret. *waiting…waiting…* Okay, come on, stop taking so long to get here. Oh, you’re here. Sorry. As I was saying, I’ve got a secret. Here goes – I puffy heart L-O-V-E reading. I mean really ❤ it. I have since I was a child.

To know me is to know that I’m a happy introvert who loves to tuck away in a corner and read.

In honor of International Literacy Day, which gives children and communities a chance to rediscover the joys of reading while raising awareness for those without access to education, here’s a collection of my favorite reading memes.

And a tiny collection of my favorite books.

The MOST important book I will ever read. It goes so far beyond ink on paper (or words on a screen, I read it on my phone). It guides my life.

Bible Live

The book that gave me the courage to admit that I wanted to be a writer.

Ironically, the book that encouraged me to see something special in my dark skin and what I thought of as my plain brown eyes.

The bluest eyes

The books that shaped my career’s passion to bring opportunity where there is none.


I have so many more. They can be seen on my Author and Fan and I Heart Reading Pinterest boards.

Quick Review: The Bachelor Next Door (Castle Falls) by Kathryn Springer

As Christians our lives are not compartmentalized. We aren’t God-fearing in church but God-ignoring in our personal affairs. God is organically woven into every aspect of our lives and we don’t push Him out to accommodate or to fit in. Kathryn Springer is a Love Inspired author who seems to understand that – as evident by this book.

The Kane brothers melt my heart. Can’t wait to read Liam’s and Aiden’s stories in the Castle Falls series.
