Cozy Up With Some Good Books

  You're Saying It Wrong was a fun book to look through. I actually passed this book along to a friend who is big on words. I am sure she enjoyed this book. There are words and phrases in this book that are constantly misused. Those phrases that I actually did use, I used incorrectly. Yikes!

Thanks to Blogging For Books for a copy of this book.








 
Greater Than Gold was a very open look into David Boudia's life. I did appreciate getting to see his honesty and also getting to see his turning his life over to God. What an encouraging read.

Thanks to BookLook for a copy of this book.









Fatal Frost kept me turning! I wasn't feeling the best for a day, and this book got me through. I do love a good action book, and this one fit that bill.

Nancy does a great job of keeping suspense while building up her characters.

Thanks to Bethany House for a copy of this book.








Earth Psalms is a beautiful book.The pictures are coffee table worthy. My almost 1 year old actually sat and flipped through this book the other day.

The devotional passages are also great. They chapters aren't super long, but they are thought provoking as well.

Thanksto Tyndale for allowing me to give an honest review of this book.

Maggie is 10 Months Old



Maggie is crawling everywhere, standing up, and cruising some. 

Saying mama and dada, even though you won't say dada for Dad. 

Waves.

Sticking out your tongue.

No teeth.

Cozy Up With Some Good Books

The Curated Closet has great pictures which makes it great to flip through. I am really starting to love having less when it comes to clothes. I am at the phase of working on getting items that I truly love.

I really like that this book gives you tips to make your wardrobe be one that you really like.

What I wish that this book had was more tips on figuring out my style. They told me to find pictures that I like and build a style board. I jsut am not that dedicated!

Overall, this was a great book to look through!

Thanks to Blogging for Books for a copy of The Curated Closet.


Next Up: 8 Shifts Great Young Leaders Make was interesting. Our generations definitely has a warped mindset when it comes to a lot of things. So to see what those warped mindsets are and then fix them so that they are positive was a good thought process for me.
 
Thanks to Moody for a copy of Next Up: 8 Shifts Great Young Leaders Make.








The Artisian's Wife is a fun read. I haven't been able to get much time to read Brown Bear, Brown Bear, but when I have, I have enjoyed this book.

The main character in this story is a lady business owner. I am sure that was not popular back in the day, but definitely interesting to think about.

Also, there was an asylum in this book. How interesting that people could get put in there because their family just didn't want them. Talk about abuse!

Thanks to Bethany House for a chance to review this book

Love Your Life Not Theirs {Book Review}


I was given the chance to read Rachel's book as part of her launch team. I was challenged, convicted, and encouraged by the book. There were lots of new truths presented in the book that went along with the truths that Rachel and Dave have presented for years.

Rachel presents this truths in a very down to earth way. I told my husband that Rachel and I are going to be friends some day. I just love her and her honesty and vulnerability. 

One of the things really challenged me was to be content with my life. With all of our life events right now, I have had a hard time being content. I know this is something that I need to work on, so I was challenged to love my life where God has me right now.

The other part of the book that I really liked was how Rachel challenges us to give all along the way. She encourages implementing giving right away so that giving becomes a habit. We are looking forward to being able to give more as we go along in our jouney. 

Thanks Rachel for sharing a copy of your book with me in exchange for an honest review. 

If you wat to order a book, I would love if you would order through here so that I can try to win some prizes with Rachel.

Cozy Up With Some Good Books

 I loved this book. Scott and I just talked last night about how many American live a lonely life. We currently live in a village. I do a decent amount of walking in our village and we never see people out and about. We live so much of our lives in our houses. We come in our garage, go in our house, and never see people. I was convicted and challenged.

This book wasn't just about building a community with our neighbors, but about being intentional about building a community. I know this is some thing that I need to work on.

Thanks to Moody for a copy of Life in Community.


All But Normal is a memoir that presents a life that just leaves you saying wow. We are so tempted to judge kids behaviors when sometimes we need to look at their family and see what is going on there. This book is one of those times. What a family life. And how encouraging that good can come from a situation that is not the best.

I was also challenged to look at someone who may have some kind of handicap ans not be judgmental. They might not be able to do something as well as me, but they can do somethings better, like love without judging.

Thanks to Tyndale for a copy of this book.


Natural Color made me want to go buy some fabric, go pick some things outside and start to dye. I just don't know what I would do with all that when I was done.

Different ideas for projects were given and with each project was given a different idea from nature that you could dye with. The items from nature were then divided up into seasons. What a fun book!

Thanks to Blogging for Books for a copy of this book.

  I know this book was written for young princesses, but I think it is geared for a little older than my 2 year old.

This book contained lots of ideas for putting things in a treasure box for your girls. The lists were at the end of the chapter for quick scanning. Part of me wishes they were in paragraph form because quick scanning for me became quick skipping over.

Thanks to Tyndale for a copy of the book Raising a Young Modern-Day Princess.


The Domino Effect was all about the stock market crashing and what one analyst did about this fact in order to keep the stock market worldwide from crashing.

Suspense and a little romance kept this book going. Great read that was a little different from my normal.

Thanks to Bethany House for a copy of the book The Domino Effect.
