I'm reading this book right now and I am absolutely loving it! It's called Primal: A Quest for the Lost Soul of Christianity. It's written by Mark Batterson. I'm only a couple chapters into it, exams put an end to my personal life for a while. But so far it is amazing. The concept is that Christians have lost sight of the Great Commandment. I think it's absolutely true. And totally about time that we realize this and try and fix it.

Anyways, I'm going to post more once I make more progress/finish the book.

If you want to check out the book you can order it here: Primal: A Quest for the Lost Soul of Christianity

Also, check out Mark's blog here. It's an interesting read.

Julie & Julia

I just watched Julie & Julia tonight. It was really good. I felt a certain connection with the ladies in the movie because of my new-found love of cooking. I love it. It is a fantastic escape from a bad day in class or just a break from homework. And the best part of it? Its something I can do with and for other people. I mean, everyone needs to eat, so why not make enough to share?

The movie also re-kindled my desire to do something. Julia Child revolutionised the way people cooked. She made French cooking accessible to normal Americans like myself. I love that. And Julie decided to add something to her life to break out of the monotony.

I need that... I need to find a project to get out of the day after day routine. I would love to find something to do. Both women started their projects out of the need to do something. I need to find mine.

Maybe I'll stumble over one like these lovely ladies did. Who knows...
