Recent reads.

The Wish by Nicholas Sparks- Nicholas Sparks books are always just a fun, enjoyable read to sneak in every once in awhile. This one is about Maggie, who was sent away to live with her aunt when she was 16, and she met a boy there and fell in love and a passion sparks for photography. Present day, she is an accomplished photographer, dealing with a hard medical diagnosis, and starts sharing her story with her assistant, so the book goes back and forth in time between present day and back when she was 16. 

On The Bright Side by Melanie Shankle- I have read several of Melanie's books now, and have enjoyed all of them. She is a Christian author, though her writing places a higher emphasis on just sharing her personal stories. She is funny, entertaining, and relatable. Her stories are light, pleasant, and fun to read. This book focuses on finding joy in what life has to offer, and covers topics such as aging, comparison, finding your people, raising kids, etc.

New Morning Mercies by Paul David Tripp- I read this in 2022 and really loved it. I found it very encouraging with much depth and Scripture references/Biblical teaching. If you are looking for a daily devotional, I would highly recommend this. It was one page a day, so not a lot, with a short Scripture reading at the end.
