Hello, reader friends! As much as I would like to write just one more chapter in this blogging journey, it is time to set blogging aside. For now, my book-loving story will continue on Instagram @faithfulbookish (see sidebar).
When I started reviewing books six years ago, I did not anticipate the many blessings God would bestow on my life through over five years of blogging. I shared about a few of those blessings and the early years of my reading journey during my first blogging anniversary. Since then, Faithfully Bookish has also opened doors for me to pursue seasons of professional book reviewing, judging for various book awards, graphic design, branding, beta reading, and most recently, a wonderful business partnership.
Thank you to all the blog readers, authors, publishers, and collaborators who have made all of this possible.
Different stages of life require different priorities. Being the best wife, homeschooling mama, and business partner that I can be requires prioritizing those roles over others.
As we enter our 2021-2022 homeschool year, we have two children in high school and two in elementary/middle school. Just as I chose to set pleasure reading aside to nurture our marriage and then babies, it’s time for me to come full circle and focus back on these growing kids.
More time and energy are needed to provide our children with a successful high school experience and prepare them for adulthood. They are my most important reason for setting blogging aside during this season. We are readying our precious arrows for their flight into the future.
As mentioned above, I will continue to spread the book love on Instagram (readers who are not on Instagram can see posts displayed on the homepage, in the sidebar, and some images are also on Fuzed or Facebook). As seasons allow, I’ll also be updating our bookish bargains on the shop page.
Working with my book sisters to support authors and publishers through JustRead Publicity Tours will be my primary bookish outlet. My role in our business combines my nerdy administrative bent with my heart for promoting and supporting authors (and publishers) of entertaining, encouraging, and redemptive stories.
One (or more) fortunate Faithfully Bookish reader friends will receive a title of their choice from my book stash! Plus, I will draw additional reader giveaway winners from the newsletter subscribers! There are over 20 Christian fiction and non-fiction titles to choose from before I donate the rest.

What chapter of life are you in, reader friends? I’d love to hear what’s going on in your world and what wonderful books you are reading (or writing).
