The Happiness Dare: Week 3, Book Review

Oh my. I read this book because I loved her book Love Idol, and I thought this would be a good book to have in my library as I encourage others to do Missionary Care. I didn't realize the profound effect that the book would have on me! 

Oh, it starts off fun enough, identifying your happiness style and how it affects your outlook on life (or how others' styles are affected). As you get deeper into it, it breaks you wide open with little exercises to allow you to change your brain's happiness power in 5 minutes a day. 

She uses science and scripture, stories and confessions to guide us along this life-changing journey at a time there is so much to be unhappy about in the world. The timing is perfect. We need this book today. 

(I read this book as a part of a pre-release book club and I received a free digital copy to read in exchange for my honest review. I purchased 2 more copies of the book - and will be leading a Women's book club through my church this fall, because it's that good!)

I've enjoyed my time of Advent, singing in the choir at church, baking cookies for friends and neighbors. It helps me to shift gears emotionally and mentally when I can change it up a bit and do something new. And in God's goodness, He is allowing us to do something new for Christmas! I'll share the detai

Romans 12, Parts 2 and 3: Balanced and Beautiful in Christ

The new posts that I wrote for Balanced and Beautiful in Christ are now live on their Facebook page, and here on my new blog site (subscribe there so you don't miss a thing!). It's been a crazy few weeks (ok...are we going on several months now??) but I'm grateful that God had me write (and schedule) these several weeks ago. I pray that the words bless you and draw you closer to Himself.  Blessings, marina
