The Sunday Post is a weekly meme hosted by Kimba @ The Caffeinated Book Reviewer ~this meme was inspired in part by ~ In My Mailbox~ It's a chance to share News. A post to recap the past week, showcase books and things we have received and share news about what is coming up for the week on our blog.
This week was really busy. I had an all day training event on Tuesday. Husband got hit with an extraordinarily painful toothache this week. It started bothering him Wednesday night. Thursday, he was in a good bit of pain, and by Friday he was vomiting. We got some antibiotics and pain medication from the dentist, but he's still been having a hard time. Friday night we celebrated my oldest nephew's 13th birthday! I can't believe all of my nephews and nieces are getting this old. And then Saturday, we spent celebrating my in-law's 50th Anniversary. It was an all around good week. Oh and Thursday I listened to an entire audiobook plus read 50% in a book later that night. I won't say I'm completely out of my reading slump, but it felt so good to get that much progress made in one day. Also, stay tuned for an announcement coming up this week.

NetGalley description--The popular writer, blogger, and television personality reveals with humor and style how Jesus' extravagant grace is the key to dealing with life's biggest challenge: people.
The majority of our joys, struggles, thrills, and heartbreaks relate to people, beginning first with ourselves and then the people we came from, married, birthed, live by, live for, go to church with, don't like, don't understand, fear, struggle with, compare ourselves to, and judge. People are the best and worst thing about the human life.
Jen Hatmaker knows this all too well, and so she reveals how to practice kindness, grace, truthfulness, vision, and love to ourselves and those around us. By doing this, For the Love leads our generation to reimagine Jesus' grace as a way of life, and it does it in a funny yet profound manner that Christian readers will love. Along the way, Hatmaker shows readers how to reclaim their prophetic voices and become Good News again to a hurting, polarized world.
