100 Bible Stories for Children {Book Review}


The pictures in 100 Bible Stories for Children are beautiful. The pictures are a realistic pencil drawing. 

This book is recommended for 5-8 years old and I would agree with that age group. My almost 4 year old is maybe a little young for this book. There is a long passage for picture in this book. That being said, the stories aren't that long, which would be great for a child who was a little older. 

While reading though, the stories seemed to be Biblical in their telling. 

We will be reading through this soon for our bedtime routine. Looking forward to enjoy this book for many years.

Thanks to Tyndale for a copy of this book.

Cozy Up With Some Good Books


I read the first book in this series a while ago, and didn't make note of Rachel Dylan's name. I am glad that I got this book to review, because I love Rachel as an author.

Rachel does a great job of adding suspense, mystery, and romance together. I was able to predict what was going to happen for some aspects of the book, but there were some other things that really surprised me.

I would highly recommend this book.

Thanks to Bethany House for a copy of this book.


I recently logged into Hoopla and binge listened to Parents Rising. I probably didn't into the book as much as I could have because I was doing other things, but I really liked being able to fill the background with something that was helpful.

I really like that the tips in this book were very practical. She gives 8 strategies and then talks through how parents can practically do those things.

One thing I wished she wouldn't have done is starting with talking about limiting tv. I really think this could be a turn off to this book for a lot of parents. It felt like the book was all about not watching tv.

Thanks to Moody for a copy of this book.

Generous Love {Book Review}



Generous Love was an excellent read. Although, this book mad me realize how much I put myself first. Sometimes, I need to hear about my issues and to remind myself that I need to be putting other people first. 

I love how this book has Scripture interwoven through the book. I didn't feel like I was just hearing what Becky thought, but I was hearing what God thought. 

The book also had many practical applications of how I can put others first. Things as easy as, when you invite others to your home, pray for them before the meal. So easy, but so hard. 

Thanks to Bethany House for a copy of this book.

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.

Thanks to Bethany House for a copy of 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.
