Loveology

Loveology

On 4/19 harrellsonhood wrote: Basically, the idea of Loveology is that marriage is a gift from God…it’s in our nature, but it has been so skewed and distorted by society over the years, we have lost sense of what it was created to be.

For books I don't necessarily enjoy, writing reviews are a piece of cake... but for books that I read and love I have a really hard time. I feel like the words I write will not do the book the justice it deserves. I ... Inspiration in the Kitchen
