Over the past year, I’ve loved looking up various books and articles. I often take screenshots and I thought I’d share the various readings with you all…leave your thoughts in the comments! I looked up whatever health issue I could think of, whether it affected someone I knew or not, to find out more! Hope this peaks your curiosity as well.
The easy response to this post is to watch the TED talk at the bottom of this post and *maybe* glance over the following link that has a free archive of a book I’ve been reading lately that has REVOLUTIONIZED the way I approach family life and values.
For example, what is the difference between an objective and a priority?
How does divorce affect each partner and their children (the part we may be blind to in our culture)?
Who are the biggest promoters of pornography for kids, and when did it become okay for adults to decide if they would like to participate in a culture of death and/or violence?
This book speaks of a LOT of important topics that any professional that will ever encounter a Christian in their practice should be able to read through to know a perspective that their viewpoint may hold a semblance to:

Here is a mini interview of Katie given by her husband:
You can pre-order her new book which will be available to read in October 2018:
I’d just like to share a little prayer to everyone being touched both in the U.S. and throughout the world by those who are unafraid to pray daily (especially when they don’t feel like it), unafraid to ask questions of incomplete satisfaction with life as we know it and look relentlessly for answers, unafraid to accept natural laws to humanity, and unafraid to believe in Christ, which begets loving action toward those near them, for the sake of themselves and others:
Oh Loving Lord,
Do you see my family?
Do you see how we have struggled?
Do you see how we have hurt?
Even each other, pain going back, for generations.
So right here, right now, in Your presence, I claim the promises You set forth for me, and for my family.
Not a perfect family, that never suffers, that never bleeds, but a family united IN LOVE, in Spirit and in Truth.
This can only come by Your grace, oh loving Lord.
So pour yourself out, upon us.
Wash us clean again.
Reach down, restore us.
Through your mercy, through your love, in Jesus’ name, Amen.

If you’re curious what this book is all about, the author will explain her story (not necessarily what’s in the book) in the first half of this video:
I was inspired by this book. I want EVERYONE to read it, but I understand that the likelihood of this occurring after this sentence’s plea is SLIM-TO-NONE. So I’m taking the tone out of the book and applying it to my blog, in the hopes that it will inspire you to care about the pages that scream Truth hidden under this somewhat-cheesy title, Kisses from Katie.
I will blog in diary-form today in honor of Katie’s choice to share many diary entries in her book, which brought her words into the New York Time’s bestseller list. I hope that my words will just bring you to read her words.
Erin and I ended our summer road trip in a great way- celebrating the fourth of July in my neighborhood! Photos below! A little about Erin (pictured above!)- we met in Marketing class when I was still adjusting after transferring to UST. I remember how kind she was to me; she wrote out her favorite…
