We love to read books, to write about books, and we love conversations about books.

Now that I have your attention because of my silly yet accurate description of what this post is about, let's talk about buying books!
We are blessed at Calvary Vista to have a bookstore right in our building filled with a lot of the titles you see here on the blog. We know that not all of you have access to a Christian store, so for our readers who don't we have some exciting news!Read more
It's that time again. Summer is coming and I just bought my first of many bottles of Moroccan Mint Iced Tea from Trader Joes. As is my habit in the time between my churches woman's retreat and the start of Summer (Which in my book is June 1st) I begin compiling my summer reading list. Now as you know the Three Ladies of Lit are always reading, but in the summer we do try to make a point of setting aside time for non work related reading if you will.

However, as we know summer rarely meanders about and before you know it it's August and you are getting bombarded by back to school ads and Christmas decorations. So how do you decide what books make the cut for this precious season? That's exactly what I'm here to tell you today.

It goes like this... one book to help me grow...one book to help me focus...one old friend...one classic.Read more

So this is a thing now. Yep, I'm on another launch team!
This time we'll be getting a sneak peek at the new book by Annie F. Downs, Looking for Lovely. Annie wrote a book that we had on our retreat list last year, Let's All Be Brave. It's a great young adult book, but as a not so young adult, I really enjoyed both the topic and Annie's writing.Read more
You want to take your Bible reading to the next level, and you want as many tools at your fingertips as possible. You don’t want apps, you want pages to turn and write on, and so you begin your search for a study Bible. What makes a study Bible different from any other Bible?Read more
It’s that time again-commercials showing thata glance out of the window reveals a luxury car with a bow on top, or a tiny box filled with big sparkle. Blogs are filled
