I picked up this book from the church giveaway table. It doesn’t look like it’s been read 🙂 I’ve heard the name Bob Goff, but I forgot the context. So I thought I’d give it a try. It’s an inspirational book, though I don’t agree with all his spiritual reflections about God. I don’t like […]


I didn’t know what to expect. The periodontist said the tooth extraction would take a couple minutes. I would be able to drive myself. So I was thinking it was no big deal. It’s true, pulling out the tooth only took a couple minutes. But the whole process was about 50 minutes. The pain after […]

Having been a follower of Christ for so long, I still wonder why God doesn’t do more miracles in answering our good and reasonable prayers. I know the answers intellectually, but on an emotional level, I have to keep asking God to remind me that though he slay me, still I will follow. Here are […]

I’ve lost motivation to do crafts. I would rather read, walk, talk to people. Making things that do not have purpose seem to be…purposeless, a waste of time. Unless I can see some eternal value with what I make, I don’t want to spend the time. Even with cooking, I just cook really simple. I […]

Everyone highly recommended this book. It took me a while to read it. It’s not the kind of book you read to get through it for the information. It’s more of a devotional book to dwell on and grow it in your heart. I was not too impressed with the first couple of chapters, but […]

Every year, I say I want to blog more to keep track of my life. But as with every typical new year resolution, I fail after the first few months. Now it’s another year! I didn’t even keep track of books I read towards the end of 2020. Here are the last 2 books I […]
