A Gift for Following!

Hello, tlfinney.com followers! You may not realize this, but as of this month, I’ve been blogging for a year! I know, I can’t believe it’s been that long myself. As a thank you to all those showing support by following my blog, I wanted to send you a little gift; so check your email in-boxes for something from TaraLFinney@Gmail.

Book Review: The Master Plan of Evangelism

This book is a bit of a departure from what I usually read and review. It was loaned to me by Rev. Stanley, the executive minister at my church; someone I love and respect. Plus, if the executive minister of your church tells you to read a book, you read it. So I did. In the spirit (pun intended) of being totally transparent, I’ve had the book for a few years and figured it...

TV: Scandal

In my last post I forgot to welcome everyone to the new look and feel of my blog. As many may have guessed, the photo is one I took of a flower while on my annual family trip to Hawaii.

In the interim, I admit, I have gotten a little carried away...

Book Review: The Bone Bed

I have read every single book in Patricia Cornwell’s Kay Scarpetta series. The Bone Bed is book #20, yes #20. Other than James Patterson’s Alex Cross series and of course, The Black Dagger Brotherhood (which is only up to book 12), I’ve never been so devoted. Although, to be fair–I tried very hard to stay engaged with the Stephanie Plum series by Janet Evanovich, but at book 17–which I couldn’t finish–I gave up. The...

Movies Men (And I) Love

I fully intended for this post to be about over commitment. You know, how so many women have difficulty using the word ‘no’ and all the reasons why? But this week is Mob Week on AMC and that changed everything… I grew up in  a household with its fair share of testosterone: father, brother, grandfather, and cousin (male), with a strong influence from my favorite uncle who I saw often. I attribute some of...
