Even though these books are longer than many books we read (my children are 5 and 2), they still hold their attention. 3. I love them because I don’t ...

You'll Get Through This

On 11/3 Lindsey Bell wrote: Joseph was sold. Falsely accused. Imprisoned. Abandoned. Forgotten. Joseph had every reason to grow bitter toward God. If If he had turned his back on the One who was supposed to be with him (but certainly didn't seem to be), no one would have blamed him. But Joseph didn't. Instead of throwing himself ...

On 5/21 Lindsey Bell wrote: I read a lot of non-fiction but rarely do I find a non-fiction book I can't put down. Don't get me wrong. I love non-fiction, but I typically read it because it's helpful for my life (not necessarily because it pulls me in like a great fiction book).

Intentional Parenting

Intentional Parenting

On 3/25 Lindsey Bell wrote: Most of us jump into parenting without a clue of what it's going to take from us. We read tons of books about pregnancy and delivery, but often fail to think about what we're going to do once we bring the baby home.

Red Letter Revolution

Red Letter Revolution

On 12/15 Lindsey Bell wrote: It's easy to just blindly follow tradition. My guess is, if you're anything like me, you don't think too deeply about your everyday actions. Especially when it comes to faith, politics, and the environment. You give (or don't give) to the church because that's what you've always done. You believe women ...
