Emergency Preparedness

Lately, I’ve been coming across more and more information about preparing for emergencies. I’ve been in a couple of situations where having a good plan and supply store would’ve been very useful. We were minimally prepared, but very minimally. So I’ve been thinking more and more about creating a plan and having necessary supplies inContinue reading “Emergency Preparedness”

The Chocolate Diaries

I just finished reading The Chocolate Diaries: Secrets for a Sweeter Journey on the Rocky Road of Life by Karen Scalf Linamen. It was a really quick and easy read. And it talked about chocolate. I love chocolate. And it talked about God. I love God more. At times, the book was a little ADDContinue reading “The Chocolate Diaries”

31 Days of Drawing Near To God

I received the book 31 Days of Drawing Near to God for free from WaterBrook Multnomah Publishing Group for this review. The book, by Ruth Myers, was previously released as The Satisfied Heart. What I most appreciated about this daily devotional guide was that the author began with her own testimony. The first 32 pagesContinue reading “31 Days of Drawing Near To God”

Why I haven’t been blogging…

In case you hadn’t noticed, I haven’t really been blogging lately. I don’t have writers block. I actually have a lot to say. There has been sooooooooo much going on in our lives lately.

I finished reading Indivisible by Kristen Heitzmann. I’m slow to post the review, but I had a hard time putting the book down! I really was a great book – mystery, crime and a little budding romance too. It is Christian fiction – so no “kids don’t read this page” parts. No foul words. ThereContinue reading “Indivisible – Giveaway!!”

God Gave Us So Much is a collection of three stories by Lisa Tawn Bergren. The stories center on a polar bear family and the lessons of diversity, love and heaven that Little Cub learns. The artwork by Laura J. Bryant is soft, sweet and calming. The first story, God Gave Us the World, helpsContinue reading “God Gave Us So Much”

Radical

I recently finished reading Radical by David Platt. Sometimes I’m a little skeptical of Christian books that try to tell me I’m not living enough for Jesus. Not that I’m living a perfect Jesus-centered life; like many others, I just don’t like being told I’m not “Christian” enough. Radical, however, made me think. It urgedContinue reading “Radical”

Remembering the Challenger

Twenty-five years ago, the way we view public tragedy changed. It seemed like everyone in the US watched – children and adults alike – as the Challenger space shuttle prepared, counted down, lifted off and then exploded. We were shocked, saddened and just didn’t know what to think. Tragedy unfolded on the television for allContinue reading “Remembering the Challenger”
