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?

Thanks to Moody for a copy of this book.

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! 

Thanks to Tyndale for a copy of this book.

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.

Cozy Up With Some Good Books.

Esther: Finding Yourself in Times of Trouble (Drawn In Bible Study) is a fun way of doing a Bible study. There is a section to read each day, a passage in the Bible, some discussion questions, and some pictures to color so you can think about what you have learned.

I really like that this book takes the time to get you to think about what you are learning about before I move on for the day.

Thanks to Tyndale for a copy of this book.

Lord, Have Mercy: Help and Hope for Moms on Their Last Nerve is a great inspirational book. What mom doesn't need a little inspiration at times? This book is split up into 90 day readings. I don't think that this book would be a great devotional, but more of just an encouragement.

Thanks to Tyndale for a copy of this book.

Cozy Up With Some Good Books

Dee Henderson does it again. Threads of Suspicion was a definite page turner and was far better than any mystery on tv!

As I posted the picture for this book, I realized what the book cover was about. Anyone else read the book and not figure out the bench?

I love the suspense the mystery and the character development in this book. I feel like the people are my friends and am pulling for them throughout the book. Cant wait for her next book to come out!

Thanks to Bethany House for a copy of this book.

You know a book must be ok when you read it to your almost 3 year old daughter, close it, and she immediately hands it to her dad to read it again. When God Made You was a cute story with lots of rhymes in the book to keep you interested.

I also love the theme of the book and how God made each of us unique and how the world needs each of us just how we are. I want my girls to know that God has made them just how they need to be.
