Welcome to June everyone! As it is also my official last day of my day-job, this particular post really does signify the end of a chapter and the beginning of a new one! As it finally starts to warm up here in Canada, it really does feel like summer is just around the corner, and with it the hope that the pandemic will be over soon and that we can hopefully enjoy the beautiful weather together.
Seems like we have a lot of anticipated reads this month, with multiple awaited books coming out every single week, including tomorrow. Without further ado, let’s go!
I cannot believe it is officially May already, can you? It feels like I’m in some perpetual time loop where every day feels kind of the same but maybe with slight differences? I am hoping for good things this month. I’m starting a new job end of the month, wrapping up everything at my current place. It’s fitting that a month of rebirth like May is full of bittersweet goodbyes while also welcoming new beginnings.
I hope as your days get brighter (if you’re in the northern hemisphere), you will be reminded that there is good in sometimes just the simplest of pleasures in this world, like the budding of a new leaf or the coolness of splashing in some water.
Okay, now that we’re past the sentimentality, let’s move onto what we’re anticipating here at DTRH in a very full month of May!

Happy Easter, everyone! While I know Easter may mean different things to you, this season is particularly important to me and my faith. So, I wanted to spend a bit of time on the blog to reflect on the last year in pandemic and the Christian books/music that have meant a lot to me during this crazy and unpredictable time.
When betrayal stings…
Last fall was particularly rough for me with regards to lack of community and betrayal of trust I thought I had in people I’ve known for many years. That’s right, not person but people. Needless to say, it was emotionally rough going at times especially when the anger was easier to hold onto than the depths of pain.
Lysa TerKeurst’s latest book was just coming out when everything came to its implosive event. And I remembered laughing that the title dealt with forgiveness. Of the sort that speaks of great pain where you just wanna hold onto the righteous anger and indignation because those people were in the wrong and I deserved an apology. Forgiving what I cannot forget.
