Grumpy Mom Takes a Holiday {Book Review}

Grumpy Mom Takes a Holiday was a nonfiction book that actually kept me reading. I really enjoyed the book. There wasn't a lot of new information in there, but there was lots of things in this book that I needed to be reminded of. I could tell Valerie was right there with me and struggling with some things that I am struggling with and she gives great tips to overcome them.

One of the things that really stuck out to me, that I think our generation really struggles with is phone usage. One thing she does is to not get on her phone for an hour in the morning and for an hour after her kids naps. She said this helps to keep her from being so dependent on her phone. To me, this sounds very doable. These were the kind of practical tips that Valerie presented.

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

Susie: The Life and Legacy of Susannah Spurgeon {Book Review}

I can't say that I really though about what Susannah, or other preacher's wives, during this time gave up to be a marry a preacher. They didn't always see their husband a lot and were left to raising their children by themselves.

Susie: The Life and Legacy of Susannah Spurgeon was a good read. It wasn't a book you couldn't put down, but it was good to think about life in another time period.

Thanks to Moody for a copy of this book.

Priceless Devotional in the Psalms Review

I had read a book a few years ago about Jen Barrick and how she was in an accident. She was able to recover, but it did leave some damage to her brain. To this day, it is almost like she is stuck at the age of 15. She is able to use this as a gift to encourage other girls in what they are feeling.

Priceless is filled with verses and relate able information for especially those who are in high school. This book would be a great starting point for a young teenage girl who is trying to start a devotional time each day with God.

Some good books about discipleship

Simple Discipleship seems to me to be about balancing. Which doesn't all of life seem to be about finding a good balance?

I enjoyed the practical elements in this book about discipleship. I know this area is one that I need to work on a lot.

Thanks to Tyndale for a copy of this book.

Discipleship was a great book to listen to. A.W. Tozer is full of some great info. If you are looking for a quick easy read, this is not the book. I did enjoy listening to this book and being challenged to live a more authentic Christian life.

Thanks to Moody for a copy of this book.

Cozy Up With Some Good Books

Unwrapping the Names of Jesus is a very nice looking book. This book would make a nice gift to others.

This book falls into the category of a good quick devotional, but not something in depth. I did enjoy reading through the book and thought it was good to think about the names of God.

Thanks to Moody for a copy of this book.

A Layman Looks at the Lord's Prayer intrigued me as being a really good book. I had a hard time getting into it though. My mind right now is having a hard time focusing on depth. So, not saying that this book is lacking, I am just not at a phase of life where I want to sit and read and have to really try.

Thanks to Moody for a copy of this book.

Cozy Up With Some Good Books

Longing for Motherhood was a good read for me. I know I can't relate to moms who can't be mothers, but I can learn to try to empathize with them better. This book helped me to see a little into their mindset.

I also think that several of the principles of this book would be helpful during any difficult time. I really liked that she encouraged friends to weep with those who weep. Sometimes, it isn't helpful to just be told that everything will be ok. Sometimes, we need someone to be sad with us.

Thanks to Moody 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.

More Than Meets The Eye {Book Review}

More Than Meets The Eye is about three orphans who no wanted wanted to adopt. They escaped from the orphan train, created their own family, and lived a scrappy life in order to survive.

I love taking a look at what could happen when there is just a will to survive. Wrong does not win, but kindness does.

Thanks to Bethany House for a chance to review this book.
