I’ve been following Noonday Collection for a few years now and even have a few pieces, including my favorite work bag*! If you don’t know what Until last year, I had never been on a book launch team, but I loved reading along with a group of thousands of women and discussing it. Pretty sure I need to start a book club IRL. I’ve always been a big reader, mainly historical fiction, but I decided a little while back that I need to include some “life” books too.Read More
I recently started reading through the Bible, and remembered that last fall as I was doing the Seamless Study I had printed off my Great-grandmother’s (Mammaw) notes on Genesis. Momma had her Bible and went through typing up her notes - we have Genesis, Matthew, and Revelations. Some of her notes say where she got her ideas, and some don’t - I’ll do my best to give credit where it’s due. As I read through Genesis, I decided to use Mammaw’s notes (MN) as an extra commentary to what was in the Jesus Bible (JB), and my daily reading plan (DR). I won’t be doing a full dive like I did with Mark, but as I go and feel the Lord wanting me to share with you, I will!

"Allie, wait, let me finish the story!"
A few months back, within 24 hours of each other, I heard that saying twice. Or actually multiple times. Two friends were telling me two different stories that they were building up to two hopefully great endings. But I wanted to know the ending faster than they were talking. So I kept interrupting them with my guesses of how things would end.
Spoiler Alerts: I never guessed the right answer. And the endings were pretty great.Read More
