Read with Me

I could not wait to receive my copy of A Beautiful Mess' Happy Handmade Home. Being an avid reader of Elsie and Emma's blog, I was excited to see what creative projects these sisters would showcase in their DIY book. Filled with fun, easy, step-by-step projects, you can easily achieve the look of the decor and crafts that these bloggers show. Lots of pictures and detailed instructions make this an excellent resource for even the most novice crafter.

I am excited to try out some of these ideas - although these girl's style sometimes doesn't match my own, the projects are easily adaptable. By changing some colors or patterns, the techniques are presented in a way that I am able to make the project reflect my home. Afterall, that's what the book is all about - painting, crafting, and decorating a cheerful more inspiring space. These little projects can help you make your home a place you love.

I received this book from Blogging for Books in exchange for an honest review.

 Beside Bethesda Beside Bethesda was a refreshing read for this tired mom of a newborn. During my nightly feedings, it was so encouraging to read the Scripture and ideas that Joni Eareckson Tada presents in this 31 day devotional. Like the man in the New Testament waiting beside the pool of Bethesda for healing, Joni revealed how she has found she must go to the Lord for emotional healing.

I look forward to passing this book on to someone else going through a difficult or weary time. Scripture pumps me up - and Joni fills her book with Scriptures that have encouraged and uplifted her during her 40 plus years as a quadriplegic.

Each day has a personal devotional, a few verses of Scripture and a challenge. I have written down many of the verses mentioned for the next time I feel down or alone.

I received this book from Tyndale in exchange for an honest review.

Since most of the kids books that I have been reading lately have just a few words on each page, it was fun to read a kids book for an older child- or at least one with a longer attention span than my son. I've always loved Berenstain Bears books, and so, I was excited to review Blessed are the Peacemakers. If you are looking for a cute story dealing with bullies, little disputes kids have and getting along, this would be an excellent book for you. Filled with colorful illustrations this story tells of the Berenstain Bears working through the problems that come from cubs not getting along.
