The Danish Way of Parenting

I think every parent should read this book. It's short enough that you can finish it in a few commuting sessions, or over a week of reading a bit at night after your little ones have gone to bed. Honestly, people who don't have kids should read this book, because it will help you re-parent… Continue reading The Danish Way of Parenting

Mindset: The New Psychology of Success

There are some parts of this book (basically every sports metaphor) that dragged on for me. I think the book could have been a lot shorter and would have been a little more effective. However, I can see a use case for the longer length. I can see how example after example in the book… Continue reading Mindset: The New Psychology of Success

This was probably a good business decision,… Continue reading Today I…

Guardian of Honor

Romance reads are a guilty pleasure for me, except I don’t feel that guilty about it anymore. I love the expectations that come with the genre, and I love seeing how writers subvert or meet those expectations. It’s not my first love, when it comes to writing and reading—but a well-crafted romance can drop me… Continue reading Guardian of Honor

The Crossroads of Should and Must

This quick read is an inspirational pep talk for people who struggle setting aside their everyday responsibilities in order to chase their passions. I feel like a recent theme in my life (and in my late twenties, in general), is questioning the either-or mindset. We’re taught that we can only do so much, we only… Continue reading The Crossroads of Should and Must
