He Holds My Hand: Experiencing God's Presence and Protection {Book Review}


He Holds My Hand: Experiencing God's Presence and Protection is a great looking devotional. This book was written when Carol was trying to desperately hear the voice of God. I think we have all been there at some point to some level.

These devotionals are short and sweet, but still full of goodness.

Thanks to Tyndale for a copy of this book.

No More Perfect Marriages {Book Review}


No More Perfect Marriages was an interesting read. I thought the advice in this book was very practical and not something that you read in every marriage book. I loved Mark and Jill's honest willingness to share what they have learned from their marriage.

One of the lessons taught in this book is that some of us are external processors and some of us are internal processors. I definitely am an internal processor, and my husband is an external processor. I sometimes don't understand him. They talked in this book about how sometimes we may view the external processor as wishy washy. I had thought that recently, but it isn't the case just my husband's way of processing things. Definitely not mine! Neither is right or wrong, jut different.

Thanks to Moody for a copy of this book!

Tora Fright Patches Things Up: A Story about Forgiveness {Book Review}



Tora Fright Patches Things Up was read right away to my girls who immediately wanted to read the book again.

I loved how the mom talked to the daughter about having to forgive her little brother for breaking her award winning creation. I also like how she forgave the little brother and together they fixed the broken toy. What a great story of restoration. I wish it were always that easy in my life!

Thanks to Tyndale for a copy of this book.

Blind Spot {Book Review}


Blind Spot fits in the category of books that I love. A little adventure. A little romance. All thrown together with a Christian theme. The only thing that I wasn't a big fan of is that the one main character let the other main character that he fell in love with sleep in his spare bedroom as protection. Nothing happens, but I wouldn't want my teen girl to think this was a great idea.

I love that this book has an nationwide investigation and also a local investigation happening at the same time. Keeps the suspense up and kept me wanting to know what was going to happen.

My favorite part, there has got to be another book coming!!

Thanks to Bethany House for a copy of this book.

God Gave Us Family {Book Review}


God Gave Us Family was a very cute book. The little wolf pup is an only child. He was talking to his parents about how he wanted more family. They talked to him about how family comes in different shapes and sizes. Lots of kids, adopted kids, grandparents raising the child, single parent, or just people near by can make up a family. They talked about how we need to love and do the best for the family that God has given us.

Great springboard to talk to my girls about different families. The pictures in this book were adorable as well.

Praying for Girls {Book Review}



Praying for Girls was challenging. My prayers usually aren't very deep and Scripture filled. I pray for my daughter's salvation, and that is about as deep as I get. So, as I finished each chapter, Teri gives examples of prayers for our daughters. Wow. I need to spend more time talking to the One who knows my girls better than anyone else!

Thanks to Bethany House for a copy of this book.

Understanding Color in Photography {Book Review}


Understanding Color in Photography was a fun book to look through! I am amazed what can be done to change the look of a picture just by changing some settings on your camera and paying attention to the lighting.

This book makes me want to get out a camera and try out some different features on the camera. I think this book would be great for anyone who takes pictures just on their own or professionally.
