Captivating by John & Stasi Eldredge
If you have not read this book, I highly recommend it. I haven’t finished reading it myself, but I am enjoying it.
Too many of the books on Godly womanhood are either from an entirely feminist, throw-the-Biblical-roles-out-the-window, or the be-a-silent-but-smiling-lady and do these couple things and you’re Godly.
Captivating is different.

I didn’t know anything about her story before I found this book. It came up recommended on Amazon while I was looking at something else.
I must admit, I was drawn in by the beautiful cover, the colors, and Malala’s inspiring face.

I love the Revolution era. I’m not sure why. Sure, as a kid I grew up watching the tv series “Liberty’s Kids”, but now it’s just like the people back then have become my friends.
Serious, prideful but deeply loyal is John Adams. Strong, proper, and smart, Abigail Adams; intellectual deep thinker and proper society man Thomas Jefferson; people-pleasing, genius, and devious, Benjamin Franklin; and even dashing, proud, and well-mannered Benedict Arnold (by the way, I just love the name BENEDICT. It’s just so–interesting!)
Wow. If you’re looking for a good book on design (you know, my favorite thing) then you just HAVE to pick up Erin Gates’ Elements of Style. The layout of it, the different pages and pictures and everything, combine to make it visually attractive.
It’s like it’s an elegant, but extremely girly feel. It just makes you want to look at it over and over again.
That’s not even including the hilarious and fabulous blog-type intros to each chapter. Which, by the way, she does have a blog–
