Bookish Offerings for the Holidays

The holidays are quickly approaching and I couldn’t let the moment pass without reminding you of some bookish gift ideas! If you have a preteen girl or a teen/young adult in your life, these books would make great stocking stuffers.

Bloom Devotional Series

Bloom is a devotional series for girls ages 9-14 that helps them grow in all their important relationships in life: with God (Book 1), with friends and family (Book 2), and with their community (Book 3). Each book contains 90 devotions and is perfect for personal use or as a group study. And seriously, those covers still make me swoon! What girl wouldn’t be excited to see that in their stocking on Christmas morning?!

Bible study for girls

The books do not have to be read in order, but can be used in whatever order is most helpful for the young lady in your life!

Change the Conversation

Change the Conversation is a book sharing my perspective on dating and the church and my experiences with purity culture. Designed to be a conversation starter for teens/young adults, this quick read will provoke the reader to reexamine their priorities and motivations when it comes to dating. Includes a chapter specifically for guys written by my husband!

As always, there are YouVersion plans for all of these books if you want to experience them in a different way.

Happy reading!

Welcome to the World, KWH!

This will be a short and sweet post because we are here in the throes of newborn days, but we wanted to share the birth of our son Karsten on November 9, 2021. We just celebrated our ninth anniversary on November 3, so as we head into the last year of our first decade (is that confusing? Mom brain over here…) as husband and wife, we are humbled to add “Mom and Dad” to our roles.
