Farewell My Life {Review}

September 12, 2019
Image result for farewell my life by cynthia sally haggard
I have to admit that when I received Farewell My Life I was a little worried. This is one big book! But as I started I realized that this would be a quick read because the author, Cynthia Sally Haggard, does a great job of bringing the characters to life. The story is based around the main character, Grace. When we first meet her she is 17 and to save she is niave would be an understatement. In fact at times I found myself getting frustrated at how little she knew, like she was a real person! The story continues as we see her move to another country, get married and divorced. The book kept me captivated the entire time. I could not wait for the ending! And that is where I hate to say I was disappointed. The two main characters die within a page or two of each other and then the book ends! NO!!!!! In my humble opinion there should have been more details leading up to their deaths and more of a wrap up afterwards. I wanted to so like this book from beginning to end, but personally the end left me frustrated!

I received a copy of this book to review. All opinions are 100% mine.
 

Great Gift for Grandparents

August 30, 2019
Image result for dear grandchild this is me

Although I am not yet a grandparent, I have a unique situation in my home right now. My father-in-law moved in with us about a year ago. During this time he has been diagnosed with cancer and recently put on Hospice. I am happy to say he is doing well! During this transition time I saw the opportunity to review Dear Grandchild, This is Me. Although my children are grown, my father-in-law has very young grand kids. 

I was thrilled to get the book and be able to show it to him. There are many pa...

Delivered {Review}

June 7, 2019
Delivered

Beth Moore is so popular and thinking back, this might be the first of her books I have ever read! Upon receiving Delivered I read that it was taken from another book she wrote, Get Out of that Pit. I am not sure which book is larger. Delivered is a quick read and has a lot of great takeaways. I did not find most of what she shared anything that I currently needed help with, but I know plenty of people that would find this book a great resource!

I received a copy of this book to review. All op...

Ever Faithful {Review}

May 26, 2019
Image result for ever faithful karen barnett
I had the privilege of reading Ever Faithful, a Vintage National Park Novel by Karen Barnett. This is the third in the series and I cannot wait to read the older two! The story, while fiction, allows you to step back into time to Yellowstone National Park in the 1930s. The story has both romance and mystery. Will they fall in love? Who is setting the fires?Karen Barnett is a wonderful author. I love when I pick up a book and do not want to put it down because I am bought in right away.

Finish First :{Revew}

May 16, 2019
Finish First

I grew up in the 1980's and remember Scott Hamilton well. I was excited to read his newest book, Finish First. I did not realize that this was more of a self help/inspirational book rather than an autobiography (which I love)!. Although Scott does weave in his own personal story in the book, his goal with this book is to inspire readers to push themselves more. While I grabbed a few nuggets of wisdom from this book, overall I felt it gave a lot of info and not a lot of practical steps. He eve...

Midnight at the Tuscany Hotel {Review}

April 27, 2019
Midnight at the Tuscany Hotel

This is the second book by James Markert that I have read and he did not disappoint! Midnight at the Tuscany Hotel is the story of a family (husband, wife and son) who create and live in a hotel in a fictional town in California in the early 1900's. We are then shot forward to the 1940's, after the death of the month, the son coming back from WWII and the father suffering from memory loss. The story takes us on a journey, both present and past to learn more about this family and the hotel. So...

The Baggage Handler :{Review}

March 25, 2019
Image result for the baggage handler

I love it when I start a book and it catches my attention right away, and I do not want to put it down. That is how it was with The Baggage Handler. I loved the concept/idea of the book. I loved how personally we got to know the 3 main characters and their "baggage". Obviously the book is meant to be used for self reflection and I love how effortlessly the author did that. I would recommend this book to everyone!

Us Against the World {Review}

February 24, 2019
W Publishing

I have to admit that I had never heard of the Manns before, but like to read books on marriage. I loved that while reading this book I was able to get to know them, their story and their heart to help marriages. It is done in a funny, practical way that kept my attention the entire time. The story about the Big Gulp had me laughing out loud! I do not think I learned anything new about marriage, but the reminders were good.

The Ministry of Ordinary Places {Review}

January 30, 2019


So, it has been a long time since a book impacted me so much! The title caught my attention so I thought I would give it a try, not really knowing what it would be about, and never having heard about the author before. By the time I was done, not only did it move me to action, I even followed the author on social media, I never do that!

Shannon Martin shares with us what it is like to live in a neighborhood in need. To not keep your door closed, to not get in your car, open the garage door and...

Becoming Gertrude {Review}

December 27, 2018
Becoming Gertrude: How Our Friendships Shape Our Faith
This is just the cutest little book. Only a little over 100 pages, but it is jammed pack with knowledge, wisdom and some great stories. Janice Peterson is in her 80's and shares stories of your life as a pastor's wife with us. Gertrude was a neighbor of hers when she was growing up and made a huge impact on her life. 

In this book you will find good reminders of how to encourage others. In this day and age we think just clicking Like on someone's post is encouragement enough. What about actual...
