What’s on my Bookshelf?

Y’all.  I don’t know what to tell you.  I have had such a hard time finding time to write this past year.  And we’re all feeling the repercussions of that because either my brain can’t turn off at night (anyone else write stories in their head?) or Seth has to hear me talk a lot more than usual.

I should also mention that my laptop is getting ready to kick the bucket because it now refuses to type the letters “t”, “u”, “j”, or “p” without a really good pounding of the keyboard. This is super helpful, as you would imagine.

My friends and family have been so sweet in encouraging me to write because 1) I always wanted to be an author (nerd) and 2) did I mention that I write stories in my head a lot?  In order to avoid the mental institution, I will just put my thoughts here.

I am super good at making excuses.  And I will pile my to-do list with 100 things then get so overwhelmed that I can’t seem to do any of it.  So I thought I would show you all the books on my bookshelf…that I have intended to read for some time…but just haven’t gotten around to it.


I have heard fabulous things about all of these!  Amy Poheler (duh), Angie Smith (one of my faves), Candace Cameron (love a little DJ), Spending Less (no brainer), and SO looking forward to reading The Fringe Hours.

I’ve also got Shauna Niequist’s new devotional Savor on its way to my doorstep.  Can.not.wait.savorSadly, it doesn’t stop here.  I have that handy dandy little Kindle that I am obsessed over filling with books.

I did just finish A Little Salty to Cut the Sweet last month.  SO heartwarming and funny.salty And am in the middle of reading The Antelope in the Living Room.

antelopeMelanie and Sophie are such sweet bloggers and it’s been fun to see them turn some of their funniest stories into books.

Amazon seems to have free books for Kindle often so I am like a hawk downloading whatever I can for zero dollars. I probably have 20 more unread books on my Kindle.

Yes, it’s probably about time for an intervention.

Or an all-expenses paid, child free vacation where I can simply read all my books for 3 months.

Either work.  Let me know.

Lastly, I’m excited to announce that one of my FAVORITE authors is coming out with her first Bible study on April 1!  I’m part of the launch team to spread the word so would love you to share Angie Smith’s new study “Seamless” with your friends, family, women’s ministries, random people, etc.


God has gifted Angie with an incredible way of words and if this is anything like her other books, we will be blown away.  More info coming soon.

If you’re like me, you’re so ready to see some sunshine this week!  And hopefully ready to see more of the Anderles.  I will give you a 34% guarantee I’ll be back soon…

  1. Hi there! I just stumbled upon your website. I noticed the post about your son having torticollis. I too have a 3 month old with torticollis. I just wanted to know more about your experience as seeing your beautiful boy is tort free! how long did it takes to resolve and do you notice any tilting at all?
    Any advice would be great!
    Concerned mama.
