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!
Today’s episode is, essentially, a love letter to Pushing Daisies. Because when it comes to short-lived shows, Pushing Daisies is unique in the dramatic responses it creates in fans. One mention of this show and fans will sigh loudly, cartoon hearts practically popping out of their eyes before they begin gushing about how dreamy and quirky and just plain wonderful it was.
Nothing is more heartbreaking to a TV fan than an early cancellation. But this month I’m taking back the short-lived show. Join me?
It is a truth universally acknowledged that finding out your favorite show is being cancelled too soon is THE WORST for a TV fan. Right? That’s why, we’re kicking off a new series about short-lived TV shows by discussing one of the most beloved gone-too-soon shows, My So-Called Life.
I had no idea I was terrified of the underwater tunnel that connects England and France. But it makes sense — and made me think of how many things, from chunnels and quiksand to sin and circumstance, try to steal the freedom God has given me through Christ.

After a quick road trip to Chicago to see Hamilton on stage, I couldn’t quit gushing and analyzing and, let’s be honest, crying just a little bit about the show. So I got my friend Amy Clark (who also has been known to gush and analyze and cry about this thing) to talk about all the things on this week’s episode.

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.

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.
