A self-avowed bookworm ever since I can remember. Now, I make a living encouraging teenagers to read books. :) 


YA fantasy is always my jam. I also dabble in science fiction, history or historical fiction, romance, nonfiction, and religious and spiritual, and self-help books.

Waiting in Mindful Hope: Wisdom for Times of Transition - Martina Lehane Sheehan

Part of the reason I love this book so much is that it is exactly what I needed right now during this time of transition from me (mourning a death, feeling burdened by work, making lifestyle changes in how I use technology). But also because it is written in such a clear, insightful way that is rooted in Scripture and the compassion and love of Jesus.


It's theoretical but practical and each chapter ends with a reminder and small but important step to put into practice.


It touches on many things: mindfulness, trusting in God patiently, embracing liminal moments - transition periods in our lives - as opportunities for growth amidst the uncertainty, and living in a hope that is rooted in Christ.


Great spiritual book I recommend especially to those who are struggling in a place of in-between.
