Kelly Leveque began her career working for Fortune 500 medical field companies such as Johnson & Johnson and Stryker, focusing on tumor gene mapping and molecular sub typing to oncologists. Yeah, the girl doesn’t play. I don’t even know what that job description means. But from reading her book, I get that Kelly knows science…

1940. New York City. Theater life. And the tagline: You don’t have to be a good girl to be a good person. I’m in. Give me all the pages, Liz. I fell in love with this author when I was in college & read about her travels in Eat, Pray, Love. And again when I…

There are a lot of books on my to-read list that I’m itching to get my hands on. This wasn’t one of them. Back in April, their names popped up on two separate podcasts I subscribe to, & the little description in the episode bio intrigued me, so I gave both podcasts a listen (That…

VISIT: HOMESTEAD HERITAGE- WACO, TX

By Jenna Winegeart / May 20, 2019 / 2 Comments

As with most things, my packing game has dramatically changed since having children. What used to be a strategy of planning outfits a week in advance has become a joke of loading all the things into suitcases two hours before we hit the road. And I mean all the things. The priority isn’t even clothes…

For at least two years, I’ve been saying I need to read more fiction. Read more fiction. Read more fiction. And it’s not that I’ve ever disliked fiction.

I had the privilege of attending Margaret Feinberg and Jonathan Merritt’s writing conference in Atlanta back in 2015. It was my first time to fly solo, rent a car by myself, & sleep in a hotel room alone. I only had one semi-meltdown when I couldn’t find where to return the rental & thought I…

BOOK REVIEW: GIRL, STOP APOLOGIZING by Rachel Hollis

By Jenna Winegeart / April 9, 2019 / 0 Comments

Before we dive into this review, let me just say—there have been allegations that Rachel Hollis has plagiarized from other influential authors. However, I can’t find where Rachel or the other authors have made a stance on it. All I am finding are other blogs & articles that seem to be using potential plagiarism to…
