“We read to know we’re not alone.”
—William Nicholson, Shadowlands

“Sometimes, you read a book and it fills you with this weird evangelical zeal, and you become convinced that the shattered world will never be put back together unless and until all living humans read the book.”
― John Green, The Fault in Our Stars

Here is a collection of blog posts, articles, books, and more that have been helpful to me along my journey. All are highly recommended.

Books

  • Know Doubt by John Ortberg
