The Empowered {Book Review}

The Empowered immediately got my attention and made we want to read the book. There was a murder that took place and that was going to need to be resolved. There also was a daughter that the father didn't know existed til she was an adult and they were trying to resolve the relationship. In my mind, this plot was going to make a great book.

However, several chapters into the book, the talk of demons started. I do believe that demons do exist, so not a huge deal. But when the dark side took over the book and was responsible for all the murders, I because a little uneasy. Maybe it is just me, but I didn't want to fill my mind with all that information. Personal preference maybe. Just be aware that the supernatural is very big theme in this book if you consider reading.

Cozy Up With Some Good Books

Power Plates: 100 Nutritionally Balanced, One-Dish Vegan Meals was a cookbook that fit my qualifications for a good cookbook. Great pictures to go along with the recipes. I don't know why, but I feel like this helps me to know if I would want to cook the food.

That being said, I definitely can not see myself becoming vegan. Some of the ingredients in this book were so foreign to me. Would be a great resource for people who were vegans, though!

Out of the Ashes is the second book in a series, and a great sequel to the first book. I loved how the author used some really tough times in some of the character's lives in order to allow them to come to come to God.

I was challenged to make sure that my hardships need to help push me towards God and not push me farther from God.

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.

Cozy Up With Some Good Books

High Treason fits my criteria for a great fiction read. I love a well crafted Christian suspense book. Not only that, but the CIA was thrown into the mix which adds another level of interest for me.

I also love that middle eastern culture was brought into this book. I am always interested to learn how other cultures think.

I am going to be watching for more books by this author

Thanks to Tyndale for a copy of this book.

Adorned was based on Titus 2. This book has taken me a while to chug through because it was convicting and thought provoking. Nothing like putting down a book, picking it up after a while and being very convicted about something that God is teaching you. And to think that some think God isn't real

The Million-Dollar, One-Person Business {book review}

The Million-Dollar, One-Person Business: Make Great Money. Work the Way You Like. Have the Life You Want was a book that I got thinking it would be a fun one to skim. Yep, no skimming here, I was intrigued the whole way through! I loved getting to hear all the people who have started up business and succeeding at them.

Examples of people making seven figures selling gumballs or six figures selling decorative mailbox flags. I mean, when you think of getting rich, I am sure those two things are the first thing to pop into your head!

I loved all the practical advice in this book as well. I have gmail and wanted to be able to send some emails where I knew if the other person opened them. There was an add on mentioned in this book that I could do that. Score.

Under a Cloudless Sky {Book Review}

Under a Cloudless Sky took me a little bit to get into reading. Having younger kids doesn't help this fact! The farther I read, the more engrossed I got in the book. And by the end, I was so shocked by what took place, that I was so glad I kept reading.

Such heartbreak happened in this book. I am amazed at how one corrupt man in power can affect so many others. I did love at the end that there was some resolution to that corruptness. The irony of this turn of events is pretty neat.

The Knot Yours Truly {Book Review}

The Knot Yours Truly was a fun book to flip through and would be great for anyone who is planning a wedding.

I loved all the pictures in the book! The book took a theme such as modern or rustic and they provided an example wedding with lots of pictures to go along with that theme.

Along with the pictures were different craft ideas to use for a wedding. What a fun book to look at while planning a wedding.

Gospel Centered Mom

Gospel Centered Mom was a fun read through that allowed me to see that I did not have to be perfect but that I need to love God and follow Him. My kids won't be perfect either, but they just need to see my hearts desire to love God.

The only thing that I didn't like about this book is that for some reason it didn't grab my attention and keep me going. I plugged on cause I knew it was good for me, but it wasn't cause I was just in love.
