My Highly Sensitive Life, at The Mudroom

Westport, MA


The most damaging and hurtful criticism frequently spoken over me as a child was this simple phrase: “You’re too sensitive!”


I was three or four the first time I remember hearing it. The hours I spent playing in our small sandbox were punctuated by frequent requests for my mom to take off my navy blue sneakers, dump out the sand, and then retie them. I imagine she was worn out by the repetition and...sensitive!”

After reading L'Engle's book, I had the same feeling. Why didn't someone tell me about Wal ...more "

This is brilliant and so insightful. (And I have no idea why I'm only reading it for the first time in 2019!)

Sex, Jesus, and the Conversations the Church Forgot by Mo Isom
Rate this book
Clear rating
Helpful in that few women talk about their pornography addiction. Would be good paired with a book like Jay Stringer's Unwanted or Patrick Carnes' Out of the Shadows, which go much deeper into the heart of addictive behaviors.

I wish I had this book and this perspective 25 years ago when I was raising my sons. While I don't agree with all of her conclusions (I would not feel comfortable encouraging teens to have sex), I think she's onto something. Americans are both obsess ...more

An Elegant Defense by Matt Richtel

Fascinating read, esp. for someone like me who deals with auto-immune issues. At times it was way too geeky/scientific but totally worth plowing through. I came away thinking what an amazing body we have.

Generation Ex-Christian by Drew Dyck

Dyck unpacks many of the reasons why folks leave church and sometimes, even the faith. I found it helpful though I wish he had gone a bit deeper into causality.

C.S. Lewis
“The Christian says, 'Creatures are not born with desires unless satisfaction for those desires exists. A baby feels hunger: well, there is such a thing as food. A duckling wants to swim: well, there is such a thing as water. Men feel sexual desire: well, there is such a thing as sex. If I find in myself a desire which no experience in this world can satisfy, the most probable explanation is that I was made for another world. If none of my earthly pleasures satisfy it, that does not prove that the universe is a fraud. Probably earthly pleasures were never meant to satisfy it, but only to arouse it, to suggest the real thing. If that is so, I must take care, on the one hand, never to despise, or to be unthankful for, these earthly blessings, and on the other, never to mistake them for the something else of which they are only a kind of copy, or echo, or mirage. I must keep alive in myself the desire for my true country, which I shall not find till after death; I must never let it get snowed under or turned aside; I must make it the main object of life to press on to that country and to help others to do the same.”
C.S. Lewis, Mere Christianity
