The Gift of an Ordinary Day by Katrina Kenison
This is a beautiful memoir of learning to slow down and enjoy the life you’ve been given. It may not look like what the world says it should, but if it’s right for you and your family then that’s ok. Katrina shares with us her family’s journey from typical suburban to the unknown.
I very much enjoyed her visual writing. The beautiful way she stings words together just made reading this a pleasure.
This book appealed to me because I too am on the cusp of changes. With two teens in high school and an aging mom with dementia, I know life will never look the same as it does right now. Because of all this, I think I could relate to some of what Kenison was going through. The need for space, quiet and courage to do what is not seen as “normal” by society. So, if you find yourself in the midst of changes, this book will probably speak to you too!
Cooking for Picasso by Camille Aubray
I really enjoyed this book. I found the story line original and interesting! The story went back and forth between 17-year old Ondine in the south of France who finds herself cooking for the famous artist Picasso, and her granddaughter, Celine in modern day. Aubray holds your attention throughout as the story unravels.
Aubray does a beautiful job describing the lovely French scenery, so you feel like you are there. The dishes cooked form a lovely, and delicious image in your head! I definitely recommend this one if you enjoy escapes to France, historical fiction with a little mystery woven through!
We Were on a Break by Lindsey Kelk
This was a fun, easy book to read. I hadn’t read Lindsey Kelk before, but I really enjoyed her style of writing! Here’s my review of this book!
Everyday Clean Home by Amy Clark Scheren
This book was given to me by a fellow blogger to read through and review. But, I requested to be a reviewer because, holy moly my house needs to be everyday clean!! And, I knew I need the tools to get some routines in place to keep my home presentable and peaceful. Here’s my review for this book!
Of Mess and Moxy by Jen Hatmaker
If you’ve never read anything by Jen Hatmaker, well I’d recommend coming at it with your sense of humor and a glass of wine! She is fun, funny and rather irreverent! She is every mom and girlfriend wrapped into one.
This book, her tenth I think, is all about embracing right where we are in life! “From tried-and-true advice for when we stare monotony in the face to honest admissions of failure and how to get back up!”
And, as a bonus this month….here’s what the rest of my house is reading
Husband – Deep Freeze by John Sanford, The Bible
Daughter – The Light we Lost by Jill Santopolo, Phantom of the Opera by Gaston Leroux
Son – Romeo & Juliet (it’s a school read)

This is a great challenge. My goal this year was to read at least one book to help me grow either as a woman, wife, mother, or in my faith. This a great mix of books that I could add to my list.
What a great challenge for yourself! I’ve been trying to have a good mix of fiction and non-fiction.
Hi! I’m always on the lookout for book recommendations so i’ll definitely take a look at your list, thanks! My Challenge is lot less than yours at 40 and I’m on number 8 as we speak. I’m currently reading “Prisoners of Geography” which explains how various countries/continents politics are shaped by the areas around them. Interesing stuff in my opinon!
That sounds like a really interesting book! Thanks for sharing 😊
