Joy: Poet, Seeker and the Woman who Captivated C.S. Lewis By, Abigail Santamaria I read a short review on this book in the World Magazine which made this book sound very interesting. Also I’ve heard the saying “Behind every great man there is an even greater woman.” With that thought in mind I’ve often wondered(…)
rare bird: a memoir of loss and love Anna whiston-Donaldson I feel like I’m on a dark book trend. Books that are sad. Emotional. But also hopeful. Spots of happiness. Sometimes… even redeeming. This and the next book review will be in the same genre. Since we had a week at camp I was(…)
I’m Too Young For This!: The Nautural Homone Solution to Enjoy Perimenopause By, Susanne Summers I’m certainly too young for this! I actually just turned 36 about a month ago. I certainly don’t feel 36! In fact… I still think of myself as in my mid to late twenties! I’ve kinda passed that!!!
An Exact Replica of a Figment of My Imagination Elizabeth McCracken It’s a simple read. It’s a great read when you just need something to fill your mind without taking too much energy. It’s good when you are grieving. When you are lost, or missing someone.
Leaving Time By, Jodi Picoult I just realized I hadn’t written a review of this book and I had completely forgotten about it. I was just looking over what I had read this year and noticed that I’d never finished the review! I had to come back to it of course and try and finish.(…)
From A Heart of Stone By, Rachel Godfrey This is a new type of book review! But one that I’m excited about! This is written by a dear friend of mine. We became friends soon after I graduated nursing schools and was a baby nurse! She took me under her wing and shared much knowledge(…)
The Other Side of the Sky By, Farah Amedi
Holding onto Hope By Nancy Guthrie Books written by human hand and by divine inspiration are of so much comfort to the grieving soul. Often I don’t know what I’m feeling or don’t have the words to describe my inner yearnings or agonies, but someone else who has been there before has found the words.(…)
Praying the Bible By, Donald Whitney What a book!! The Bible transforms life, and this book has transformed my prayer walk.
I Will Carry You By Angie Smith I originally wrote this post when I was pregnant with Jussi, but it got lost and was never posted. It has since been found and all written is still very true and has been a book of great comfort to me in both of my losses. Instead of(…)
This review is A LONG time coming! There has been a lot going on in the lives of our family and the blog took a back seat. And in the late fall I was given this book to review. I’ve actually used it A LOT, but never had the presence of mind or the ability(…)
A Happy Marriage Rafael Yglesias I’m way, way far behind writing a review of this book! I probably finished it about 1-2 months ago, but life has been a bit crazy and i just haven’t gotten around to it!
We made it through first grade and it was a great year! Tonchi did a great job and it was so much fun to see him grow and learn throughout the year! We worked hard and tried to stay on schedule, but there were some days we skipped school and had catch up days on(…)
God Can’t Sleep By Palmer Chinchen, PD This book was very different than I expected. I thought it was going to be about God and suffering and how God doesn’t sleep when we go through trials. And while it was about that it took a different path than I expected.
