As the pastor of two small churches, I am always looking for litanies we can use on Sunday Mornings. Pratt's work is both poetic and powerful. Her book is a resource I will refer to repeatedly.
Why do women love horses? What does our love of horses say bout us? Reading Halley's book was refreshing because it felt as if I finally had the opportunity to sit down with a well spoken and very well educated friend and talk through these questions. She uses stories from her own personal history with horses (some of which made me cry) as well as different sociological and psychological frameworks. She also shares results from an interview she conducted with self-identified "horse crazy," women. The results, especially the way "horse crazy," impacts members of the disability community, were fascinating.
Gould's playful work is purr-fect for anyone who wishes that she knew a little bit more about art history. This book won't make you into an overnight art history expert (which makes sense, because that isn't her goal), but it WILL use adorable cat paintings to introduce you to the major developments of art history in the Western World.
Speaking Out: Gifts of Ministering Undeterred by Disabilities is a book that is full of both heartbreak and hope. This book is compilation of personal testimonies from people serving in ministry, all of whom are living with some type of disability.
I love food and I really enjoyed the opportunity to interview Rinku Bhattacharya about her latest book, Spices and Seasons!
I had the chance to interview TEDx speaker and rare disease mom, Kristin Smedley, about her new book and how she is changing the way the world sees blindness. When both of Smedley's sons were born with a rare disease that caused them to lose their sight, she and her family chose thriving over merely surviving.
She's My Dad by Jonathan Williams and Paula Williams is a heartbreaking and poignant memoir that made me feel deeply for Paula and her story.
