Cozy Up With Some Good Books


Secret Keeper Girl Mom-Daughter Devos: with Coloring Experience will be a great book to pull out when my girls get a little bigger. I love that there is a passage of Scripture on each day, something to read, and an encouragement to journal. They also have pictures that they can color along the way. What a fun way to get girls excited about learning about God's Word.

Thanks to Moody for a copy of this book.

 

Who knew that someone could get in trouble for making lace? A Refuge Assured has great reviews on Amazon, but once again, I struggled to get into it and so I am giving myself grace. I have two littles and for right now, I will not be finishing this book.

Raising World Changers in a Changing World by Kristen Welch

Raising World Changers in a Changing World by Kristen Welch was one of the best books that I have read for a while. So convicting for those of us who live in America.

Rise and Grind {Book Review}


Rise and Grind: Outperform, Outwork, and Outhustle Your Way to a More Successful and Rewarding Life is one those books that is fun to read to see what people are doing in order to be successful.

One of the takeaways that I had from this book is to work hard when you are working. To do my best and to keep going. One thing that I struggled with is the fact that I don't want to work hard from morning to night. I want to work hard, so that I can enjoy my family and what I want to do. 

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

Cozy Up With Some Good Books


God Made the World tells the story about creation. The pictures aren't your normal creation pictures, though. I personally think this fact make the book a little more interesting. The pictures are more abstract.

This book was a great read one Sunday when we weren't able to go to church since we weren't feeling the greatest.

Thanks to Tyndale for a copy of this book.



I am always interested in books that have to deal with money. Money Problems, Marriage Solutions didn't have a lot to do with money, but how to make sure that you are unified in your marriage when it comes to money.

I have heard that many marriages break up due to finances. Probably most of that issue is that the couple isn't on the same page. This book focuses on that issue.

Thanks to Moody for a copy of this book.



Breaking Cover: My Secret Life in the CIA and What It Taught Me about What's Worth Fighting For is a great insight into what life in the CIA looks like. Something we don't get to see very often. Michele is definitely a woman who stands up the impossible.

I loved how Michele gives credit to God for leading her steps. Michele and her husband were able to help Iraqi Christians to get away from Isis. They probably wouldn't have been as successful ifs they didn't have their previous training.

Thanks to Tyndale for a copy of this book.



We have been covering Paul in great detail in our Sunday school class. So, Paul and His Team: What the Early Church Can Teach Us About Leadership and Influence has been a great addition to that class. I enjoy learning principles from those in the Bible and how they chose to lead.

Thanks to Moody for a copy of this book.

The Empowered {Book Review}


The Empowered immediately got my attention and made we want to read the book. There was a murder that took place and that was going to need to be resolved. There also was a daughter that the father didn't know existed til she was an adult and they were trying to resolve the relationship. In my mind, this plot was going to make a great book.

However, several chapters into the book, the talk of demons started. I do believe that demons do exist, so not a huge deal. But when the dark side took over the book and was responsible for all the murders, I because a little uneasy. Maybe it is just me, but I didn't want to fill my mind with all that information. Personal preference maybe. Just be aware that the supernatural is very big theme in this book if you consider reading.

Thanks to Tyndale for a copy of this book.

Cozy Up With Some Good Books


Power Plates: 100 Nutritionally Balanced, One-Dish Vegan Meals was a cookbook that fit my qualifications for a good cookbook. Great pictures to go along with the recipes. I don't know why, but I feel like this helps me to know if I would want to cook the food.

That being said, I definitely can not see myself becoming vegan. Some of the ingredients in this book were so foreign to me. Would be a great resource for people who were vegans, though!

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



Out of the Ashes is the second book in a series, and a great sequel to the first book. I loved how the author used some really tough times in some of the character's lives in order to allow them to come to come to God.

I was challenged to make sure that my hardships need to help push me towards God and not push me farther from God.

Thanks to Bethany House for a copy of this book.



Secret Keeper Girl: The Power of Modesty for Tweens is a great resource for modesty for girls. Both my toddlers enjoyed flipping through the book and seeing the pictures in the book. Hopefully, they will like the book just as much in the next few years.

I like that this book has more of a magazine feel to it than a book feel. I think that this would help the tween to actually pick up the book and read the book. Such a needed topic for young girls.

Thanks to Moody for a copy of this book.

Cozy Up With Some Good Books


High Treason fits my criteria for a great fiction read. I love a well crafted Christian suspense book. Not only that, but the CIA was thrown into the mix which adds another level of interest for me.

I also love that middle eastern culture was brought into this book. I am always interested to learn how other cultures think.

I am going to be watching for more books by this author

Thanks to Tyndale for a copy of this book.



Adorned was based on Titus 2. This book has taken me a while to chug through because it was convicting and thought provoking. Nothing like putting down a book, picking it up after a while and being very convicted about something that God is teaching you. And to think that some think God isn't real

Thanks to Moody for a copy of this book.
