Welcome to the Friday Five where I’ll share with you five things that I’m either reading, using, cooking, exploring or loving. I never know what’ll show up in the Friday Five, and I can almost guarantee I won’t post a new one every week because new mom life does not leave me a lot of breathing room, but I can promise to try!

So without further ado, here is the very first Friday Five:

Grace, Not Perfection: Embracing Simplicity, Celebrating Joy

by Emily Ley

I’m currently about halfway through this book and I’m loving it. I’d contemplated buying it for a couple of years before I actually did, and I’m so glad I waited, because it speaks perfectly to where I am now, not where I was two years ago. It definitely wouldn’t have had the same impact then as it does now.

If you’re caught up in the trap of trying to be perfect and finding out that not only are you anything but perfect, but trying to live like you are has you feeling worn out, beaten down, or just plain miserable, this may be the book for you. You can find it here.

(in)courage Devotional Bible

Christian Standard Bible Translation

This is, quite honestly, the prettiest Bible I’ve ever owned. Packed full of devotional reading plans and designs that make my designer heart flutter, it’s definitely brought new life to my time spent in the Word. You can find it here.

The Armor

message by Priscilla Shirer

My friend Aileen recently introduced me to Priscilla Shirer and I’m so glad she did. What an amazing woman. I listened to this message this week and loved the important message. You can watch it here.

Pentel EnerGel Liquid Gel Pen

0.7mm Retractable Pen

If I could only write with one pen for the rest of my life, this would be it. I currently use these in black, blue and violet, and they are the smoothest writing pen I’ve ever used. You can find them here.

Healthy No Bake Oatmeal Bars

Recipe from Joy Food Sunshine

We’re obsessed with these no bake oatmeal bars. They literally take about 10 minutes to whip up and have removed all Reese’s Peanut Butter Cup cravings I was having. You can find the recipe here.
