Next week, we’re going to start reading through Just Show Up by Kara Tippetts.
I’ve been reading this book the past few days and gleaning so much and I wanted to share my thoughts with you as I thought it might encourage you as it had encouraged me.
If you have a friend who is going through trauma or heartbreak, this book gives very practical and wise advice on how to walk through suffering and hard times while being a blessing, not an annoyance or causing more hurt.
After trying a few different things, I decided to just stick with scoping through books. That’s very doable for me and I can be a lot more consistent and reliable with that than with trying to scope and blog through books at the same time. However, I may throw a post or two up about a book that we’re going through if I have a chance to write one. We’ll see!
So, starting Monday, I’ll be scoping through Just Show Up every weekday morning next week — sharing what I’m learning, how the book is making me think, and how I want to change my life as a result.
If you’d like to join me, you can download the Periscope app and follow me (@MoneySavingMom). I’ll do a quick 3-8 minute scope every morning after my Morning Motivation show and would love for you to tune in live or watch the replay on the Periscope app.

How do I get in in the book club?

Love the morning book club scopes Crystal! This is definitely a book for me at this time. Glad you chose it.
I am glad you enjoy scoping and so many people seem to like it as well. It isn’t my cup of tea, at least so far. I find myself getting irritated with the little interruptions every time someone joins in; maybe it’s my age? 🙂 I keep telling myself I need to be flexible and adapt as you have so ably done, Crystal! For now I will stick to reading your posts. The book sounds really good!
I absolutely love that you’re figuring out how to host a book club in a way that’s life giving and energizing to yourself as well as your readers. You’re doing a beautiful job!
