  1. Hi Sarah, thanks for the recommendation! I hope this book is in translation. And I'm currently reading the book "Dearest Josephine". I saw you talking about her in a book video with flowers on the covers. This book is very beautiful. I downloaded it electronically. I have already read half of the book. I love books about old estates, about letters, and about the past.

    1. I know some of her later books are in translation but I should have checked on this one specifically! Please let me know 💙

      I have not read Dearest Josephine yet but I have been looking forward to it for a while. Now I am even more excited!

  2. So many great recommendations! I love The Ministry of Ordinary Places- very good! I also read the Purpose Driven Life like 20 years ago (wow! that makes me feel old!) with my SS Class. I have been thinking about it and considering re-reading. Also Stormie Omartian's books are some of my all time favs- my Power of a Praying Wife and Power of a Praying Parent are well worn.
    I love Time Slip/Spilt Time books and will be checking those out and looking forward to the upcoming episode :D

    1. I'm happy it was a good episode! I could spend hours on that time split page lol


Thanks so much for your comments! I always read them, don't always have time to answer quickly. Sorry about that!
