Sometimes truth shows up where you least expect it.We could all use a minute – a minute to put up our feet, a minute to watch another episode or read another chapter, a minute to breathe. And that’s okay. Taking time to rest and enjoy yourself isn’t something to feel guilty about. And the truth is that show or that book might just have something holy to teach us.
I’m Mary, and I’m so glad you’re here. Welcome to a guilt-free corner of the internet where you can kick off your shoes, get comfy, and have a little fun. We’re going to talk about our favorite TV shows and movies, our book boyfriends and secret playlists, and anything else that reminds us about who we are, what’s most important, and even God.
Connecting the dots between everyday life and the Word of God makes my heart beat fast as I am convicted or comforted, encouraged or inspired – and I love nothing more than sharing those connections with friends like you. Plus, sometimes I just love a good list or recipe or movie review. If any of that sounds like your cup of tea (or coffee), stick around. We’re going to have fun!
Remember romantic comedies? Why do we love them so much, and why don’t they make them anymore? Let’s discuss… #youhadmeathello
Have you been watching THE GOOD PLACE? No? Oh...wow...um...it's fine. It's fine. Everything's fine. Except, you guys, you really should watch it! When it premiered last year, I wasn't sure what to think about it. Of course, as a die-hard VERONICA MARS fan, I was all...
NOTE: If you have not watched The Marvelous Mrs. Maisel yet, stop what you're doing. Do not pass go, do not collect $200. Go immediately to Amazon Prime and watch it! This show...THIS SHOW! It is GORGEOUS and HILARIOUS and TOUCHING. It's well-written and well-acted...
This year I have several pop culture parenting goals. From old sitcoms to live music, I hope to experience the arts in a new way with my family! What pop culture will you share with your family this year?
As I read about the Israelites (and reflected on some hard situations in my own life), I was reminded of the Taylor Swift song, “Are We Out of the Woods?”
PITCH PERFECT 3 is a perfectly ridiculous movie. I loved it anyway – and it totally made me cry. Here’s why:
If this is a season when you need the familiar, the simple, the warm and cozy? That’s okay. There’s a time for new, but it doesn’t have to be today.
Put down your power sheets and gel pens and planners with pretty clips — and pick up your remote, because you’re going to want to make some New Year’s-style changes to your DVR. Let’s kick off the new year with some new shows!
This year has been a difficult one, even devastating for some. I know I’m not alone in looking forward to a fresh start as we flip over the calendar. But before we head into a new year, we still have a few days left in this one – and I’m determined to make the best of...
It's a lifestyle. It's a devotional!
Gilmore Girls was a TV show known (and loved) for its fast-talking, pop culture-referencing, coffee-chugging characters, but it was also a show devoted to love of family and community. These themes – as well as topics like forgiveness, kindness, and gratitude – partner well with lessons from the Bible.
Christians who loved this show will be encouraged and inspired to follow this “season” of daily devotions, reminiscing about their favorite Gilmore Girls scenes and perhaps seeing them from a whole new perspective.
When life makes you say, “Oy with the poodles already!” grab your mug of coffee and settle in for a conversation that will warm your heart and feed your soul.
