Then school started. I was assigned hundreds of pages to read a day. Papers to write. Quizzes to be prepared for. A new language to learn. Things got crazy real quick...clearly, I've barely been in school a week...and my early morning quiet time has been replaced with one final read through of the homework. My 30 second Jesus Calling reading and 5 minute drive to and from class has become the new morning devotion time. Not good. I know.
I heard about this book months ago because I'm a frequent reader of Emily's blog. I knew I would love it, but was almost afraid to read it for myself. It's not a secret that one of the things I struggled with the most is giving myself grace, and since I've worn the "good girl" label pretty much my entire life, I had a feeling that this book would really rock my world. Well, after reading so many great things about it, I knew that I just had order it. I have a feeling this book may be just the ticket to get me back in my morning quiet time routine and I can hardly wait!
