God Gave Us Family {Book Review}


God Gave Us Family was a very cute book. The little wolf pup is an only child. He was talking to his parents about how he wanted more family. They talked to him about how family comes in different shapes and sizes. Lots of kids, adopted kids, grandparents raising the child, single parent, or just people near by can make up a family. They talked about how we need to love and do the best for the family that God has given us.

Great springboard to talk to my girls about different families. The pictures in this book were adorable as well.

Praying for Girls {Book Review}



Praying for Girls was challenging. My prayers usually aren't very deep and Scripture filled. I pray for my daughter's salvation, and that is about as deep as I get. So, as I finished each chapter, Teri gives examples of prayers for our daughters. Wow. I need to spend more time talking to the One who knows my girls better than anyone else!

Understanding Color in Photography {Book Review}


Understanding Color in Photography was a fun book to look through! I am amazed what can be done to change the look of a picture just by changing some settings on your camera and paying attention to the lighting.

This book makes me want to get out a camera and try out some different features on the camera. I think this book would be great for anyone who takes pictures just on their own or professionally.

Good Night Tales and The Character Builder's Bible {Book Review}


Good Night Tales: A Family Treasury of Read-Aloud Stories reminds me a little of Narnia on a much smaller scale. There are 12 stories in this book that are based on Biblical principles. They all point to the fact that God has redeemed us. 

This book is geared towards a little older age group than my girls, so we will look forward to pulling this out in a few years to read through the stories again.

Thanks to Tyndale for a copy of this book. 



The Character Builder's Bible: 60 Character-Building Stories from the Bible is going to be read right away as our girls at bedtime. There is a Bible story with a cute picture. The Bible story then focuses on a character trait. On the next page, the character trait is explained in a way that kids can explain. Then last page of each story has a cartoon of a child practically putting into practice the character traits. A fun book that will be getting lots of use at our house.

Thanks to Tyndale for a copy of this book.

Deadly Proof {Book Review}


Suspense, adventure, and a little romance made me enjoy Deadly Proof a lot! You all know I am a sucker for a suspense book that is clean. This book did not leave me hanging. I think if there were more books like this one, I would never get anything done!

Thanks to Bethany House for a copy of this book.

Sweet Potatoes: Roasted, Loaded, Fried, and Made into Pie


Sweet Potatoes: Roasted, Loaded, Fried, and Made into Pie is a great looking cookbook that will be added to my short stack of cookbooks.

The pictures in this cookbook look amazing. They make me want to try every recipe in here. I am not super familiar with cooking with sweet potatoes, but am looking forward to using them more.

The recipe that is first on my list is cinnamon rolls. Think my husband is going to care that I used sweet potatoes in our next batch of cinnamon rolls?

Thanks to Blogging for books for a copy of this book for an honest review.

Egypt's Sisters {Book Review}


Egypt's Sisters is a very historically based book. Since I am not a history buff, I had a hard time getting into this book. Not the right book for me. And so I am giving myself grace and not reading this book right now. I am sure it is good, but not my choice of reads.

Thanks to Bethany House for a copy of this book.
