Bible + Science Studies

Life with kids is messy. By far, our favorite kind of mess is literary clutter. Walk into our home and you'll find books piled about with worn edges from constant use. Reading brings us together then sends us out into the world inspired. Books also play an integral role in my writing. Below are some of our favorites, each highly recommended.
