The BlogTruth found in unexpected places
We have so many reasons to read romantic comedies right now. Some of us need to escape reality for a little while or distract ourselves from our fears, anxieties, and very much non-fiction problems. Some of us are overwhelmed with all the hard stuff surrounding us today and are simply looking for the good wherever we can find it. And some of us need a reprieve from fighting the good fight, whatever that fight may be. And lucky for me — lucky for us — we seem to be in a bit of a romantic comedy novel revival these days. Just check out these 15 books!
This episode was recorded (with my friend and friend of the show, Alana Dawson) before we knew much about COVID-19 and before we were all social distancing and shelter-in-place-ing. I thought about not releasing this one, but though the conversation may seem out of touch (I’m not seeing any movies in the theater right now, for example.), my hope is that it will also be helpful — either as a brief distraction or as a list of things you might read or watch during this difficult season. As always, I’m your gal for lists of “comfort food” books, movies, TV shows, and more.
The easy-breezy “blue sky” shows from USA, TNT, and other networks are just what we need now to escape (and enjoy!). Here’s where you can stream them.
This week, Amanda White and I combine two of our favorite things into one fun conversation. We’re talking about children’s books (yay!) adapted into children’s movies (double yay!). And while we recorded this well before we had even heard of the coronavirus, we’re hopeful this episode will be helpful as you’re looking for ways to keep your kids entertained while you’re staying home.
Today I’m talking with my good friend (and friend of the show), Kristen Strong about how pop culture can help us deal with change. Whether the biggest change in your life right now is spring finally showing winter the door, or you’re experiencing a major life change like moving, changing jobs, getting married or divorced, this episode will have something that can help you escape your stress and process it, too.
Jenny Rapson is back on the show, and we are talking about the celebrities we are rooting for. Contrary to popular opinion and all evidence that tells us who the real winners are and aren’t, these handful of people have, for one reason or another, captured our hearts. And no matter what, we can’t stop hoping things will turn around for them.
Perhaps part of me wishes I could, in fact, turn back time. Who knows? Regardless, the truth is that I LOVE TIME TRAVEL STORIES. And so does my friend (and friend of the show), Amanda White. So today, the time has come (see what I did there?) for us to talk about ALL our favorite time travel stories in books, TV shows, and movies.
This week I’m talking with my friend Tasha Jun about why we need more diversity in romantic comedies. We also share a few of our favorite rom coms and talk about our FEELINGS related to the To All the Boys sequel. Halloween costume parties and Mr. Miyagi are also discussed. Enjoy!
brother is back on the podcast to talk about musical TV shows, episodes, and scenes — and we are so proud of ourselves for not breaking into song and dance a single time. It’s a miracle! (Yes, I did sing that in my head.)
I’m sitting at my dining room table, country music playing just a smidge too loudly behind me as my daughters have a dance party on what feels like the seventy-third snow day this month. I reach for my Bible, running my hand down the whisper-thin pages, and close my...
ay my friend Dawn and I are talking about upcoming we’re excited about. Prepare yourself to roll your eyes as we swear up and down that we’re underwhelmed by this season’s movies and then proceed to tell you about almost 20 movies that we just HAVE to see.
Every few months I sit down with my friend Dawn to talk about what upcoming movies we want to see. Of course, it's not quite as simple as that sounds. We're big ol' nerds, and also big movie fans, so I have taken to creating an entire spreadsheet for us. Release date,...
