Recent reads.

A Little God Time for Mothers: 365 Daily Devotions- I received this devotional from a friend for my birthday. I read a couple pages everyday, as they are really short (one page), so I finished it faster, but I enjoyed it. It's not super deep, but good for a quick minute of encouragement as you have time. It would be a nice devotional to keep on your nightstand or in your purse or something for whenever you have a minute.

Freely and Lightly: God's Gracious Invitation to a Life of Quiet Confidence by Emily Lex- I enjoyed this book. It wasn't riveting in a can't put it down sort of way, but it was light and airy in the breath of fresh air sort of sense when I did get to read it. She includes lots of her watercolor paintings in the book as well, which gave it a calming feel. It was about letting go of expectations and trying so hard, and embracing Jesus' invitation to come to Him for real rest and grace and quiet confidence.

What Alice Forgot by Liane Moriarty- This is a story about Alice, who hit her head when she fell at the gym and she wakes up thinking she is married, pregnant with their first child, and 29 years old. In realty, she has amnesia and has forgotten the last ten years. She is 39, has three kids, is about to divorce, and her life looks much different than what she would have imagined. I did find myself thinking about this book several times while I wasn't reading it, so it was an enjoyable read. I have read a couple of her other books as well and liked them. I kept wondering what would happen at the end, and I was thankful that I was satisfied with the ending.
