Words on Wednesday – Contentment

One more thought from Kimberly Wagner’s Fierce Women:
What is the fuel, the recipe, for truly giving thanks not just once a year?


Contentment and gratitude feed each other. Giving thanks helps us to be content and living lives of contentment helps us give thanks.

It seems you can’t have one without the other.

Recently Finished

After a long book-finishing slump, I did finish Fierce Women by Kimberly Wagner this week. I have a few other books in progress but finishing has been an issue lately.

Recently Added

I picked up several books at the library this week. (You can see my stack on Instagram.) Several mysteries jumped into my library bag. Which means winter is definitely coming, because winter is when I like to hibernate with a warm drink and an (somewhat) easy read.

Current Read Aloud

We’re reading The Rescuers by Margery Sharp for the first time. It’s more clever than I expected and about as different from the Disney movie as I expected it would be (which is to say, everything is different except for two of the character’s names).

Current Book to Review

BookLook Bloggers sent me a beautiful journaling Bible to review. I’m not entirely sure how to review the Bible, but I know I appreciate this lovely edition. Watch for that review, coming soon!

Current Kindle Deals

I prefer physical copies of children’s books but Amazon is offering a few $1 deals on children’s books right now. These two jumped out at me:
Alexander the Great and
Columbus by Demi.
I haven’t read this but I recommend Eric Metaxas in general and this is good deal right now:
If You Can Keep It: The Forgotten Promise of American Liberty.
And speaking of Eric Metaxas, his thanksgiving book for children is a GREAT deal right now (highly recommended!):
Squanto and the Miracle of Thanksgiving.

I wish you and yours a very Happy Thanksgiving. I am thankful for each of you who read and share in this Living Unabridged community!
