Treat Yourself

I re-read books. I binge watch my favorite shows over and over again. And I like a cuppa coffee in a mug that makes me feel better about my day. Everything on this page comes to you with love and the reminder that taking time to rest and treat yourself is really a gift to everyone around you.


No matter how many times we move, boxes and boxes of books always move with us. Books have been some of my best friends over the years. And I still have all my mom’s dog-eared favorites sitting on my own bookshelf now.

Here are some of my favorite reads. They have changed how I parent, how I understand friendship, faith and fiction, and how I laugh at myself. I hope some of them might do the same for you.


Every time you reach for that cuppa or pull out that TShirt or apron, here’s a little something to help remind you that what you do is heroic because — repeat after me —  “I save lives daily. I’m a mom.”


Raised by a mom who grew up in the world of theater I see life and faith through story-colored glasses. My brothers own a film production company. Our family can spend hours talking TV shows and film. These are some of my favorites. Please note, they are not all faith-based but they all reflect my belief that everywhere that truth and beauty are to be found, you can be sure they are born of the DNA of the God whose image we are created in.
