    Review: Rule of Law

    Typically I enjoy legal thrillers. I have read and enjoyed several titles by Randy Singer, so I was happy for the opportunity to review his new book, Rule of Law. I received a complimentary copy from LitFuse in exchange for my honest review. Here’s the publisher’s description– About the Book: What did the president know? And when did she know it?…

    Review: My Daughter’s Legacy

      About a year ago I read the second book in the Cousins of the Dove series by Mindy Starns Clark and Leslie Gould, My Sister’s Prayer. I enjoyed how that story explored sister relationships but it did kind of leave me hanging since it is the middle book of a trilogy. I was happy to have the opportunity to…

    Guest Post: From Diet to Edit

    When my friend Kelly told me that her new book, From Diet to Edit, would be releasing today, I asked if she would be willing to write a guest post for my blog. Kelly has long been pursuing a healthy lifestyle and has encouraged many to do the same. I’m delighted to have her share today. From Diet to Edit…

    Review: Courageous Love

    My all-time favorite book series has got to be the Little House books by Laura Ingalls Wilder. I was first introduced to them when my mother checked them out at the library to read to us at bedtime before I started school. The problem was, one chapter a night just wasn’t enough. I couldn’t wait to learn to read. Just…

    Review: NIV Journal Bible for Girls

    Bible journaling is a creative trend that I’ve been enjoying this past year. I enjoy spending time copying scripture and dwelling on it while I doodle. I’ve found that it’s a way to slow me down to think more deeply about scripture because I tend to read quickly and miss details. I shared a little bit about that last summer.…

    Review: A Spectacle of Glory

    Usually when I share a book review it’s for a book I’ve finished. This time, I’ll admit, I have not yet read the whole book. That’s because it’s a daily devotional book, meant to be read throughout the year. Another thing that’s unusual about this review is that I don’t often use a devotional book. I know they are quite…

    Book Review: The Enchanted Barn

    My friend Heather and her family moved into a barn this summer. They really did. Isn’t it pretty? You can read about it on their family’s blog: To Sow a Seed. I’ve always thought it would be kinda cool to live in a barn. I have Grace Livingston Hill to thank for that. When I was a teen I loved Grace…

    The Last Ride – Review

    The Last Ride is the third book in the Circle C Milestones series by Susan K. Marlow. I received a free copy from the publisher in exchange for my honest review. This series continues the story of Andrea Carter from the Circle C Adventures series for younger readers. The Milestones series is for young adults, and I think The Last Ride…

    Vintage ABC picture book

    Today, boys and girls, we are going to learn the alphabet. There will be a quiz, so pay attention, please! This is a “weekend re-run” from 2009 featuring a darling vintage picture book that was among some other old books that were given to me that summer. The cover is missing and there is not a copyright date on it, but the…

    To Kill a Mockingbird

    Good lighting… and story telling. Or more specifically, the Summer Photography Challenge for Day 2 is: “…to go out and practice using light and telling a story with your mobile phone camera.” I’ve been re-reading To Kill a Mockingbird this summer, and I’ve recently started working on mug cozies again to get my Etsy shop re-stocked for the fall. So…
