Review: Born to Wander by Michelle Van Loon 

You may have heard the line from J.R. Tolkien’s Fellowship of the Ring that says “Not all those who wander are lost.” I was in a Sportsman’s Warehouse lately, and all the wandering men in there were clearly not lost, but in some form of camo heaven. I’m not sure that’s what Tolkien meant, but wandering isn’t always a directionless and purposeless. In fact, for the children of God, wandering is part of what we are born to do.

I won, I won! I won a book I was longing to read, (thank you Putnam and Penguin) and if you buy yourself a copy, you’ll be a winner, too, even though you have to pay for it.  Jan Karon, author of the three ladies very favorite novel series has a new book any Mitford fan will love.

We live in a time when it has never been easier to discover new voices of inspiration and encouragement. We hope Three Ladies is a place that helps you do that, and we are always on the lookout for those voices whose writing will be of value and enjoyment to you.  “New” is a relative term, isn’t it?

Review: It’s All Under Control by Jennifer Dukes Lee

Almost every day I get a promo in my inbox that is for yet another book on being overwhelmed, overwrought, over busy, and not living the overcoming life. It’s a hot topic, and I just read an article on why time management strategies don’t work for most people over a long period of time.

In conclusion-we’re doing too many unnecessary things that keep us from being productive in the necessary things. 

And it’s making us crazy.
