Cozy Up With Some Good Books

I really wanted to sit down and read a book the other day. I really just wanted to sit down and read a fiction book, but I didn't have any here to read. So, I picked up the top book on my non fiction pile to start reading. Couldn't have been a more appropriate book to read at the time.

In one of the first chapters of The Set-Apart Woman: God's Invitation to Sacred Living, Leslie talks about making the things of God our first priority. Not going to the tv, or my guilty one- facebook, to fill out time. She said when she spends her free time focusing on God, her life is far more fulfilling.

I was really challenged by that discipline and have been trying to read a chapter in a non fiction book each day before picking up a fiction book.

Leslie's challenges were very convicting and she wove Scripture throughout the book. I was definitely blessed by having the chance to review this book.

Thanks to Tyndale House for allowing me to review The Set-Apart Woman: God's Invitation to Sacred Living in exchange for an honest review.

The Amazing Make-Ahead Baby Food Book is a book that I ordered not thinking that it would prove to be that valuable. Boy, was I wrong!

Thankfully, with Esther, my mom made most of her purees last summer. I did make carrots and I remember cooking them forever. There is a chart in this book that says exactly how long you need to steam your fruits and veggies before pureeing them. How handy would that have been when I kept bugging my mom that my carrots were still too hard!

Esther is now eating mostly finger foods, but there is a section in this book about those as well. Creamy Fruit Roll Ups look really good to me!

I love all the variety of recipes that are in this book.

Thanks to Blogging for Books for a copy of The Amazing Make-Ahead Baby Food Book in exchange for an honest review.

Because I haven't had any fiction books to review, I decided to get Remnants: Season of Fire Remnants: Season of Fire and give it a read.

This book kinda had a sci-fi twist to it.Took me a while to get into it because I hadn't read the first book in the series.

There is a battle of good and evil. Interesting book, but not one that I am gushing over.

  1. Wow, I'm seriously going to look into reading The Set-Apart Woman. :) I'm off to read more reviews of that book on Amazon now. Thanks for including it in your post, Lydia!

    1. If you do end up reading it, Sandra, you will have to let me know what you think!

  2. I had that same feeling this week that I just felt like sitting down and reading a fiction book. I don't do that very often but sometimes it just sounds really fun.

    1. Sometimes I read during Esther's nap as my way to relax. Some days I need that! Hope you were able to fit in some time for a good book, Abbi.
