Cozy Up With Some Good Books

Design Your Day was a great quick read. As I was thinking about the next year, and making goals, this book made me think about my goals.

I love how Claire wants people to focus on their goals,but then gives them strategies to be able to get things done so that they can enjoy life.

Thanks to Moody for a copy of this book.








Habit Changers gave a page that had a mantra on the page and then explained about how you can use that mantra in your life.


For me, this book would be a good coffee table book where you could read as time permits. Not really a book that I really wanted to sit down and just dive into.

Thanks to Blogging for Books for a copy of this book.






 Lord, Change My Attitude Before It's Too Late has been a hard one to read because I have needed it so much. I haven't gotten all the way through it because I have had to take my time. 

I like to have a bad attitude and complain too much. This book works on that attitude. Youch. Can't say I am loving this book,but I am needing this book.

Thanks to Moody for a copy of this book.

Cozy Up With Some Good Books

  You're Saying It Wrong was a fun book to look through. I actually passed this book along to a friend who is big on words. I am sure she enjoyed this book. There are words and phrases in this book that are constantly misused. Those phrases that I actually did use, I used incorrectly. Yikes!

Thanks to Blogging For Books for a copy of this book.








 
Greater Than Gold was a very open look into David Boudia's life. I did appreciate getting to see his honesty and also getting to see his turning his life over to God. What an encouraging read.

Thanks to BookLook for a copy of this book.









Fatal Frost kept me turning! I wasn't feeling the best for a day, and this book got me through. I do love a good action book, and this one fit that bill.

Nancy does a great job of keeping suspense while building up her characters.

Thanks to Bethany House for a copy of this book.








Earth Psalms is a beautiful book.The pictures are coffee table worthy. My almost 1 year old actually sat and flipped through this book the other day.

The devotional passages are also great. They chapters aren't super long, but they are thought provoking as well.

Thanksto Tyndale for allowing me to give an honest review of this book.

Maggie is 10 Months Old



Maggie is crawling everywhere, standing up, and cruising some. 

Saying mama and dada, even though you won't say dada for Dad. 

Waves.

Sticking out your tongue.

No teeth.

Cozy Up With Some Good Books

The Curated Closet has great pictures which makes it great to flip through. I am really starting to love having less when it comes to clothes. I am at the phase of working on getting items that I truly love.

I really like that this book gives you tips to make your wardrobe be one that you really like.

What I wish that this book had was more tips on figuring out my style. They told me to find pictures that I like and build a style board. I jsut am not that dedicated!

Overall, this was a great book to look through!

Thanks to Blogging for Books for a copy of The Curated Closet.


Next Up: 8 Shifts Great Young Leaders Make was interesting. Our generations definitely has a warped mindset when it comes to a lot of things. So to see what those warped mindsets are and then fix them so that they are positive was a good thought process for me.

The Artisian's Wife is a fun read. I haven't been able to get much time to read Brown Bear, Brown Bear, but when I have, I have enjoyed this book.

The main character in this story is a lady business owner. I am sure that was not popular back in the day, but definitely interesting to think about.

Also, there was an asylum in this book. How interesting that people could get put in there because their family just didn't want them. Talk about abuse!

Thanks to Bethany House for a chance to review this book

Love Your Life Not Theirs {Book Review}


I was given the chance to read Rachel's book as part of her launch team. I was challenged, convicted, and encouraged by the book. There were lots of new truths presented in the book that went along with the truths that Rachel and Dave have presented for years.

Rachel presents this truths in a very down to earth way. I told my husband that Rachel and I are going to be friends some day. I just love her and her honesty and vulnerability. 

One of the things really challenged me was to be content with my life. With all of our life events right now, I have had a hard time being content. I know this is something that I need to work on, so I was challenged to love my life where God has me right now.

The other part of the book that I really liked was how Rachel challenges us to give all along the way. She encourages implementing giving right away so that giving becomes a habit. We are looking forward to being able to give more as we go along in our jouney. 

Thanks Rachel for sharing a copy of your book with me in exchange for an honest review. 

If you wat to order a book, I would love if you would order through here so that I can try to win some prizes with Rachel.
