Seeing in the Dark: a Book Review

This book could not have been more timely for me and my family. We have spent the last several months on mission in another country and trying to figure out what is next for us. We prayed without ceasing and were feeling very in the dark. I wanted to see and then Seeing in the Dark came along.


Nancy Ortberg has a keen sense for metaphor. She uses easy to understand aspects to help us gain an understanding of things that are quite hard to wrap our minds around. Her book made me feel more comfortable in the dark, unknowing time of our life.


Seeing in the dark is easy to read but full of useful information. It is like having a mentor to confer with right in your hands, perfect while I am so far away from my mentors back home.




Tyndale House Publishers has provided me with a complimentary copy of this book for my review.

Learning the Uke

The Cat Returns is one of my favorite animated films. The end song, Kaze Ni Naru, is one of my favorite parts and gave me the longing to play the ukulele. I found just the uke for me here in Montreal. It is part musical instrument and part souvenir of Quebec. I am not terribly good at it yet, but I am starting to get this song down. Once I have it figured out, I will either attempt to learn the words so I can sing along, or move on to another great song. In the meantime, here is a great cover of the song by someone who has been playing a lot longer than I have.

Indescribable

Have you seen this video by Louie Giglio yet? It is really amazing to see how the universe proclaims God's glory. Take some time to watch it. God really is indescribable.

Cats in Paris: a Book Review

In Montreal adult coloring books are everywhere. When we came back to the states a couple of months ago I found they were popular here too. I really enjoy them and am very particular about what I pick. I like a lot of fine details mixed with whimsy.

Cats in Paris by Won-Sun Jang is simply beautiful. It begins with a sort of tour of Paris, with cats of course. There is a bit of narrative in this portion as well. The art is beautiful but not quite the page covering design work I personally love. The rest of the book makes up for it though. There are patterns and intri'cat' designs. The artwork throughout is beautifully done and a joy to fill in. I am so happy to be able to while away my quiet moments with this book.
