Books I Read: January 2016

by jessicaturner on February 3, 2016

The Girl Who Wrote in Silk: I actually read this book at the end of December, but I loved it SO much that I wanted to be sure to share it here. It tells the story of Inara Erickson who finds an elaborately stitched piece of fabric hidden in the house in her deceased aunt’s […]


5 Ways to Raise Grateful Kids

by jessicaturner on January 27, 2016

A few weeks ago I lost it. I was in Elias’s room and his bottom dresser drawer was open. He was pushing on it in such a way that it was straining the whole drawer. I asked him to stop. He did it again, the track cracked and the drawer dropped to the floor. “Why […]


My 2016 Reading List

by jessicaturner on January 26, 2016

One of my big goals for 2016 is to do A LOT of reading. 2015 was a big year for our family, with Ezra’s birth, my two book releases and Matthew’s six weeks of travel. Consequently, my love of reading really took a back seat. I read the fewest number of books I have read […]

Choose Joy: Introducing Sara’s Book

by jessicaturner on January 5, 2016

I’ve started this blog post a dozen different ways. Nothing seems good enough. Some of you might remember my friend Sara, known on the Internet as Gitzen Girl. Sara had an autoimmune disease, was home bound and sadly passed away in 2011. Thousands were impacted by her blog writing and today a book, of Sara’s […]
