Book Review: Now: Purposeful Steps Toward a More Abundant Life: An Encouraging Devotional For Women


My Thoughts:

This is a great little devotional. I love that it is short enough to be read in one sitting but with it's substance and reflection questions I found myself revisiting each chapter. I think it would make a great book club book. While I don't think this book is for everyone I think it would be very helpful to someone who is feeling overwhelmed and not quite sure what direction to take in life. The author talks you through fine tuning your dreams and guides you into how to make those dreams a reality.

Back Cover Quote:

"Do you have big goals that seem impossible? Are you ready to step out into fulfilling your dreams but everything seems so overwhelming? In Now: Purposeful Steps Toward a More Abundant Life, Sarah Coller shares practical steps for living a fulfilling life, no matter your life circumstances.

You should definitely check this book out and right now it is a steal on Amazon for only $4.99.

New Instagram Account and a Leave of Absence

First things first, let's talk about Instagram.

I had a moment last week where I realized I didn't want to be posting so many pictures of my children on the internet. One day they are going to be old enough to have an opinion on the matter and while I'm sure a few pictures here and there will be okay, I'm sure they won't want their whole life documented on social media. So I made my account private and removed everyone I didn't know in real life. I probably could have found a better way to go about it than just deleting everyone but in the moment that's all I could think of. I reopened another account under the same name. If you would like to follow along you can still find me at TheWoollyHomestead. I will still be posting about life on our homestead but it will include a lot less pictures of my kiddos.


This leads me into the second thing I wanted to talk about. With baby#3 being due in a few weeks I am planning on taking a leave of absence from the blog. I may pop over here once in awhile but I don't imagine it will be that often. I'm pretty confident that three kids, gardening, sheep, milking, chickens, canning, etc...are going to keep me very busy this summer. Once things settle down in the fall and we find our new groove as a family of five I hope to return to posting more regularly. I will still be on Instagram so be sure to follow us over there

I hope you have a wonderful spring and summer! See ya in the fall!
