Delays and summary | Grow with us!

Updated: Jul 16, 2021

It must have been mere days after posting the last article that we discovered that we would be going on an unexpected trip to Galiwin'ku on Elcho Island. This extended time turned out to be such a blessing, and not just for the relational and language opportunities that it provided. It came shortly after receiving bad news about Elyce's health and so we decided to give Elyce some needed time for respite and for our family to begin to plan a path forward.

But now we are back... So let's do this!

Here's the plan- We're going to do a summary review of some truly amazing books. Feel free to read along, and if there's interest, we can change things up to be more interactive.

I know what you're thinking...

'How is the relevant to me?'

Here's the answer:

Only a few of the books reviewed here will be specific Arnhem Land, and many will be super-duper inspiring!
