Cozy Up With Some Good Books

 I loved this book. Scott and I just talked last night about how many American live a lonely life. We currently live in a village. I do a decent amount of walking in our village and we never see people out and about. We live so much of our lives in our houses. We come in our garage, go in our house, and never see people. I was convicted and challenged.

This book wasn't just about building a community with our neighbors, but about being intentional about building a community. I know this is some thing that I need to work on.

Thanks to Moody for a copy of Life in Community.


All But Normal is a memoir that presents a life that just leaves you saying wow. We are so tempted to judge kids behaviors when sometimes we need to look at their family and see what is going on there. This book is one of those times. What a family life. And how encouraging that good can come from a situation that is not the best.

I was also challenged to look at someone who may have some kind of handicap ans not be judgmental. They might not be able to do something as well as me, but they can do somethings better, like love without judging.

Thanks to Tyndale for a copy of this book.


Natural Color made me want to go buy some fabric, go pick some things outside and start to dye. I just don't know what I would do with all that when I was done.

Different ideas for projects were given and with each project was given a different idea from nature that you could dye with. The items from nature were then divided up into seasons. What a fun book!

  I know this book was written for young princesses, but I think it is geared for a little older than my 2 year old.

This book contained lots of ideas for putting things in a treasure box for your girls. The lists were at the end of the chapter for quick scanning. Part of me wishes they were in paragraph form because quick scanning for me became quick skipping over.

Thanks to Tyndale for a copy of the book Raising a Young Modern-Day Princess.


The Domino Effect was all about the stock market crashing and what one analyst did about this fact in order to keep the stock market worldwide from crashing.

Suspense and a little romance kept this book going. Great read that was a little different from my normal.

Thanks to Bethany House for a copy of the book The Domino Effect.

Cozy Up With Some Good Books...and a Game

Punderdome in my book, would be a fun game to watch being played. I am not a big one to come up with puns, but I do enjoy listening to them.

This game reminds me of apples to apples in the you are given cards, come up with puns, and the best pun collects the cards. The person at the end of the game with the most cards wins.

  In the Field of Grace was a book based on the story of Ruth. When you think of the book of Ruth in the Bible, you do have to realize that there isn't a whole lot there. So, there is a lot added to this book to make it a full book. The author did great at taking things back to the time period. Idid enjoy getting to think about what some aspects of Ruth's life could have been li

Thanks to Moody for a copy of this book in exchange for an honest review.



  Pumpkin Patch Blessings is a fun board book to help us all get ready for fall. For all the hot weather that we have been having, it doesn't seem like fall is any where close by.

Cozy Up With Some Good Books


I loved, loved, loved this book. Better Together was written to encourage moms that they need to be together in life and to work together.

There was a section that talked about personalities that we have that affect relationships. For example, some people like to be in big groups and some like to get together in smaller groups. This fact will affect how we like to do things as moms. I really enjoyed this chapter and realizing how these can affect all relationships.

I tend to think through all problems in my head. My husband tends to talk through problems. These personality traits affect our marriage.

If you are a mom, I would highly recommend you read this book.

Young & Beardless was way better than I was expecting. When you take a child of someone famous and they write a book, it makes a little nervous that they are riding mom and dad's fame. This book was still very good.

If you have a teen boy, I would encourage you to have them read this book. A role model young man who is leading a Godly life.

Thanks to BookLook Blogger for a copy of this book in exchange for an honest review.







Taste and See is a good book that is full of many truths. There are many truths that are great to think through.

When I think about a devotional, I want a book that causes me to take out my Bible and dig in. This book didn't have me pull out my Bible and so I wasn't the biggest fan of that. Just a personal preference though.

Cozy Up With Some Good Movies

One of the things that I have missed about not having cable tv is the hallmark channel. I love knowing that what I am watching on there is almost always clean. That is one of the things that excites me about this series. 

Fish Flix is offering a great promotion - Preorder Season 3 of When Calls the Heart before October 11th and you will receive Season 1 for FREE!

Think ahead to people who you might have on your Christmas list. What a great present.

Cozy Up With Some Good Books


Becoming a Woman of Excellence 30th Anniversary Edition could not have come at a better time. As we lost our house to a fire, I didn't have a devotional to do. One of my friends sent me a devotional and I received one in the mail. Both were blessings. 


I have enjoyed going through this book. I love how Cynthia keeps bring you back to the Bible. In my mind, that make a great devotional book. 

Thanks to Tyndale for a copy of this book



Food with Friends: The Art of Simple Gatherings is filled with great pictures and recipes. I definitely had a good time looking through this book. 


The idea of simple gatherings made me think that these recipes would be simple. Granted, they aren't super complex, but they are more complex than I would probably be game for making. I tend to truly be a simple girl though. 

If you are into making cute food for your guests, definitely check out this book.

Cozy Up With Some Good Books


 Another fun read is A Treasure Concealed. The main characters in this book went through some hard times. Don't we all face our own versions of hard times. I love how the characters are shown working through their hard times. 
I also like that living conditions were not easy, but they were content and lived with what they had. Some important lessons for me as well. 

Thanks to Bethany House for a copy of A Treasure Concealed.

Broth & Stock shares lots of different recipes that you can make. I love the natural approach to broths. I do like taking my leftover chicken bones to make broth. It was great to look through this book in order to get more ideas of what to do with that broth.

I love that this book includes great pictures. I know broth could be a boring thing to picture, but they are done so well that it is great just to look through this book.

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