The Dude's Guide to Manhood

The Dude's Guide to Manhood

On 2/1 Natalie wrote: We'd be hard-pressed to argue that manhood in our culture has not eroded greatly. I cannot even open this Pandora box before it becomes to messy to unpack, but we all can attest to the fact and it's highly likely we could do so through our own experience; the majority (if not all) have been hurt by men. ...

A Year with G. K. Chesterton

A Year with G. K. Chesterton

On 12/7 Natalie wrote: I've taken a great liking to G.K. Chesterton this year. (Granted, it's taking me forever to get through his little book, Orthodoxy.)

On 5/3 Natalie wrote: I'm pretty sure you can't go wrong with a book that opens up with the line, "I do all my best thinking on Tom Sawyer Island at Disneyland." Right from the introduction, I was hooked with Goff's first book: Love Does: Discover a Secretly Incredible Life in an Ordinary World. Bob Goff has lived a life ... Love Does by Bob Goff
