The Wend Family

Opening our hearts to life’s possibilities

  • Welcome!

    Hello there! You have stumbled upon the personal website of Bryce and Casey Wend.

    While our serendipitus story started on a cold snowy day in Reno, we now call the Silicon Valley home. We are both in our early-thirties working in the construction industry and have recently begun growing our family.

Reading List

Here is my reading list.  I’m always looking for a good book, please pass them on!

Books I’m Reading

Linchpin, Seth Godin.  I follow Seth Godin’s blog so it didn’t take much convincing from Chris Brogan’s reading list to pick this one up. 

Recently Read

The Help, Kathryn Stockett.  Excellent novel, loved the references to the Southern Junior League in the 60’s!  First book I read on my iPad. 

Getting Things Done, David Allen.  I read this productivity book right when I was getting ready to go back to work from maternity leave with Ryan.  It was recommended by the Simple Dollar blog.  It is a fairly rigid model of handling your ‘to do’ list but has forever changed the way I process my work and personal life.  Highly recommended! 

The Power of Less, Leo Babauta.  Recommended by Chris Brogan.

A Million Miles in a Thousand Years, Donald Miller.  I went from laughing out loud to out and out crying while reading this book.  It’s a beautiful and thought provoking book about the story we write for ourselves.  Recommended by Chris Brogan.
House Lust: America’s Obsession with Our Homes, Daniel McGinn.  Recommended by Hooked on Houses blog, I really enjoyed this take on why we Americans (present company included) are obsessed with our homes.
In Defense of Food, Michael Pollan.  This book changed the way I think about food, point blank.  Got me off my duff and got serious about learning to grow food in a home garden.
The Facebook Era , Clara Shih.  A helpful intro to social media for business applications.

Monday Morning Leadership, David Cottrell.  A quick read, I read it in one night before bed.  Lots of good lessons through example.  Not too much new information for me but a great leadership refresher book.
