a new kind of book club




Rachael and I are so excited to embark on a new kind of book club with you.  A weekly series/link up that we hope you'll be a part of!  Here are the details...

Who we are:
Sisters, standing smack dab in the middle of grace & truth. Reading whatever Jesus brings our way.
Journaling our way through life change. Building a community of sisterhood, friendship, & accountability.
Loving on each other every Thursday.

A few reasons why you should consider joining us:
A great way to meet new bloggers, accountibility to spend some time reading stuff that feeds you,  focused prompts for when you have "writer's block," linkups build new readership, your bookshelf will be prettier.

Logistics: 
Grab a copy of Grace for the Good Girl, by Emily Freeman. Paperback , e-reader, whatever your preference! This book was the inspiration for our plan and after Emily's blessing, decided it was a great place to start. We'll be covering one or two chapters a week, with blog link-ups every Thursday.

Use #thesamepage for your Twitter/Instagram hashtags, as we'll be chatting on all the usual social media platforms. All are welcome! We want this to fun, challenging, encouraging, and empowering.

You do not have to have a blog to participate.  Share what you are learning anywhere -- instagram, Facebook, with your accountability partner.  It's all up to you.

Disclaimer:
We are so pumped about this first book.  We are reading it together for the first time too.  Reading books like this that stir your heart are so great and can lead to personal growth, but lets be super careful not to substitute any of this reading with time in the word.  That is where the real good stuff is!

--> Next week is the first link up!  
Week One // Introduction and chapter 1

feel free to post on whatever questions/quotes you like from the selected reading. If you need help with a specific writing focus, tackle these:

"I fear I fall through the cracks because my story draws no attention. I lack intrigue, drama, and interest. Can he see ordinary, unspectacular me?" pg.18

"While I thought I was searching for him, he graciously, miraculously, and intentionally found me." pg. 22

What does life look like for you when you are being driven by fear? What is your "sometimes truth" that challenges Love's lead in your life? pg.20/23
