Swirls of Life

Life is a swirl…

Quote of the Month

QOTM

“Evil will become powerless when it finds no opposing object, no resistance, but, instead, is willingly borne and suffered. Evil meets an opponent for which there is no match. Of course, this only happens when the last remnant of resistance is removed, when the urge to retaliate evil with evil is completely renounced. Then evil cannot achieve its goal of creating more evil; it remains alone.” – Dietrich Bonhoeffer

Botanic Gardens

I was in DC for 6.5 hours today! Most of it was spent at the Botanic Gardens. You would think most of it would be outside, but the building is kind of like a greenhouse. Here are a fraction of the pictures I took.

Nature is so beautiful.

Book of the Month

This month’s book is Airhead by Meg Cabot.

Summary: EM WATTS IS GONE.

Emerson Watts didn’t even want to go to the new SoHo Stark Megastore grand opening. But someone needed to look out for her sister, Frida, whose crush, British heartthrob Gabriel Luna, would be singing and signing autographs there—along with the newly appointed Face of Stark, teen supermodel sensation Nikki Howard.

How was Em to know that disaster would strike, changing her—and life as she’d known it—forever? One bizarre accident later, and Em Watts, always the tomboy, never the party princess, is no longer herself. Literally.

Airhead is the first book in a trilogy. Even though it’s been a few years since I read it I remember picking it up and literally not being able to put it down. Airhead is a VERY addicting read. You have been warned haha. Be prepared for twists as well.

Rating: 10/10

P.S. If you love reading check out Goodreads.

Book of the Month

I’ve decided to replace Movie of the Month with Book of the Month to reflect what I’m currently reading. My goal is to read 40 books this year. So far I’ve read 16 so almost halfway there!

This month’s book is The Set-Apart Woman by Leslie Ludy.

Summary: In The Set-Apart Woman, women of all ages will be encouraged to stay grounded in Jesus amid the many distractions and temptations of their daily lives. Biblical truths will help readers understand what it means to live the consecrated life, set apart for God’s purposes. Readers will apply these truths to practical areas of struggle that women face on a daily basis, such as sinful attitudes and patterns and other hindrances to our souls.

Usually I don’t read non-fiction, but this was a birthday gift from one of my friends. I’ve been procrastinating on reading it because most of my books are from the library and have to be sent back by a certain date or else I’d get fined.

Since I’m currently in chapter 3, I decided to get an opinion from one of my other friends who’s read this book. Here’s what she had to say: “It’s very spiritual and a great book for young woman. It gave me the desire to have a closer relationship with God.”

Rating: 8/10
