Hello friends and a blessed Sunday to you all! I hope this post finds you all well. Today is the day I reflect and share with you what I’ve been doing, reading, and watching over the week.
It has been warm, sunny and muggy here in little, old England. Other than our tiny classroom being like a greenhouse at school and an extra sweaty dance class, it has been a good, quiet week for me. Nothing exciting to share, however I have very much enjoyed my early nights and my shady reading spot I have found for my lunch break. 🌞
I must also say a big thank you for those that sent their prayers, love and best wishes for mine and my grandfather’s health this week. ❤
With the quietness, sunny lunch breaks and early nights, this has been a very good week of reading for me.
📗 Knowing God by J.I. Packer (1973) – Last Sunday evening, I finally finished this bestselling Christian non-fiction, that was the June read for my church’s book club. It was a dense, detailed read, which covers almost all areas of Theology! No one managed to finish it in time for our meeting, but it still made for a good book to discuss. My full thoughts to be posted soon! ⭐⭐
📱 The Little Shop of Found Things by Paula Brackston (2018) – A couple of days later, I also finished this historical-fantasy, which is the first book in a continuing series, about Xanthe and her mother Flora’s small antique shop in the market town of Marlborough. This was a light, easy time-travelling romance. ⭐
📗 Sense and Sensibility by Jane Austen (1811) – Next, I picked up my new, pretty hardback copy of this classic novel, for a comforting re-read of the touching tale of sisters: Elinor and Marianne Dashwood, as they navigate Regency society, romance, and their vastly changed circumstances.
📗 Future Glory by Ed Hindson (2021) – I also received and started my brand-new copy of this Christian non-fiction, our July read for my church’s book club, that is an exploration of the seven unique promises that outline what’s in store for every Christian, from the prophecies of the book of Revelations. Honestly, Revelations boggles me, so I am hoping reading this will help!
It was also a pretty decent week of viewing for me too: while I didn’t watch lots, it was all good quality.
📺 Keep Sweet, Pray and Obey (2022) – Through the week, I made my way through this four-part, true-crime docuseries, on Netflix, that examines the rise of Warren Jeffs in the Fundamentalist Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-Day Saints and his shocking criminal case. An eye-opening watch! God bless those poor girls and young women.⭐⭐
📽 The Electrical Life of Louis Wain (2021) – Then our Friday night film was this historical-biopic, starring Benedict Cumberbatch and Clare Foy, about the British eccentric Louis Wain, whose art transformed the public’s perception of cats forever. While I found the diverse casting at odds with the historic setting of Victorian England, this was still a moving and whimsical watch. ⭐⭐
