Just Sayin' {Book Review}


Just Sayin' was a fun book all composed of letters. In a day that letters aren't written much, this format made the book kinda fun. This book would be great for middle schoolers who may come from or step family or may have friends in a step family. So, pretty much any child now a days!

Freedom's Ring {Book Review}

 

I had forgotten what Freedom's Ring was about, and so I didn't know what I was getting into when I opened this book. The picture led me to believe this was historical...if you know me, that is not my thing. But modern day Boston...combined with historical Boston.

I also am not a fan of two story lines in a book. But this book was so good. I felt pulled into both stories. Yes, the modern day got me first, but that is personality. I loved the different style in this book and the unique story line.

The New American Heart Association Cookbook (Book Review)


The New American Heart Association Cookbook came at the right time! My uncle just had a heart attack at the age of 54. Our family has had several people with high cholesterol and with young heart attacks. So, I think I need to spend some time with this cookbook.

One thing that I like about this book, every recipe has nutritional information after them. Good for me to think about.

One thing I didn't like about this cookbook, no pictures. I struggle when I don't get to see a picture.

The Simplest Way to Change the World {Book Review}


My friend Cindy recommended this book and said that she wanted to read it again. For a nonfictional book to be that good, I thought it would be worth picking up. But you never know if a recommendation is going to be a let down or not.

I did love this book! I have wanted to have people into our house more for a while. The idea can be scary or overwhelming. This book was filled with practical ways to have others into your home.

The Simplest Way to Change the World: Biblical Hospitality as a Way of Life focused on being missional in having people over. I am not to that point yet. I am right now working on getting to know the people that are in my life better.

Do you like to have people into your home? What keeps you back from having people over?

I started Hacking Growth. I thought it was cool how Airbnb got their start by placing their ads on Craigslist. Very creative.

The book was a little too technical for me, and as a mom of too littles, I just couldn't plug through the book right now. I am sure it is full of great content, but I couldn't focus on something that was a little out of my field.

Wow!: The Good News in Four Words {Book Review}


When I first opened this book, I looked at the dust jacket and saw that the four word were Wow! Uh-Oh. Yes! Ahh. Needless to say, I was a little scared.

Wow!: The Good News in Four Words turned out to be a great book. Things started with creation and went through the resurrection. There is even a little bit about how we need to live after we are saved. 

The pictures through the book were just like the cover. Lots of color on each page to keep your attention.

My almost 3 year old daughter loved the book. Definitely a book that we will be reading again!

Road Food {Book Review}


Not gonna lie, Road Food makes me want to get on the road and travel! This book is written for motorcyclists who are on the road looking for good places to eat. I think that anyone who spends time on the road could benefit from this book.

The book is split into regions and then states. There are restaurants given and a little synopsis of the restaurant. Nothing excited about the book as far as pictures go, but I think fulfills the purpose of directing people to unique restaurants.
