WATCH / READ / LISTEN (April '17)

Hello! It's been a while since I've updated you on some book, show, and music recommendations so here they are.

I can't wait to watch Anne on Netflix! It's not until next month, but it looks SO GOOD. And guess what? I've never read any of the books or seen any of the movies. Who am I, right? I was the same with all things Jane Austen before this past winter, but I've since educated myself. It's never too late to dive into great literature, and usually you can find some friends who want to re-read alongside you (I love my book club for being such good sports!). Anyway, can't wait to watch Anne. Last week I saw that Netflix also finally updated episodes of Call the Midwife so I've been watching series 4-6 somewhat regularly. Brad and I also re-watched The Kings Speech on Netflix a few weeks ago. What a movie. I still haven't seen Beauty and the Beast, but when I do, maybe I'll find share why we have chosen not to show any Disney movies to our kids (ages 3, 5, 6) yet (and I why Disney irks me in general).

Books have been wonderful lately. I read Unbroken by Laura Hillenbrand in four days. Happily I spent every evening that week enraptured. It was helpful that my husband was at a conference that week, because as soon as the kids were asleep I buried myself in that incredible story. Wow.  I also just finished Parenting by Paul Tripp and it's the top parenting book I recommend now. Definitely worth reading, no matter how old your kids are!

I've been loving Page CXVI Reimagined by Derek Webb. I already love Page CXVI and their modern take on classic hymns, but Webb makes them more upbeat and alive! I have also been working out to Passion Pit, which makes me want summer so badly!

What are you reading/watching/listening to?
