Read with Me


You Can Stay Home with Your Kids is the cutest covered hardback filled with glossy pages and incredible tips. If you've ever wondered if your family could go down to one income, allowing you to be a stay at home mom, this book is filled with the advice, money saving ideas and action steps that you can put into place. It's easy to read and topically divided. What a great resource.

Even tough it is not the Christmas season, I was excited to look through this book. I plan to use it for my own personal devotions this holiday season. An Advent Devotional Unwrapping the Names of Jesus is a beautiful little hard back book. There are 4 weeks of devotions, dividing the names into these categories: Hope, Preparation, Joy and Love. Each week has 5 days with 5 different names of Jesus. There is also a list of activities for that week's focus. What a perfect way to get to know Jesus better while prepping for the celebration of His birth.

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

Until we Find Home was a delightful read from my favorite, WW2 time period. The author was new to me, but I appreciated her writing style and character development. It was an entertaining, fictional read.

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

Braving Sorrow Together is a perfect little book to help transform our way of thinking when life is hard. I felt like it would be helpful for both one that was hurting or one that was wanting to help the hurting. It was easy to read and full of insightful, encouraging truths. I also loved the quotes from other Christians sprinkled throughout.

Daily Encouragement for the Smart Stepfamily  is filled with daily tips for the entire year. Each day features a tip or encouragement and ends with a brief pray of refocus. Some days include Scripture. It's more of a tip book than a devotional, but still full of great insight.

Devotions from the Lake is a hardback devotional with 100 different selections. The photography and glossy pages make this a delightful book to have. Each day begins with Scripture and uses a reference to something you'd experience at the lake. The devotions aren't super deep, but they are thought-provoking and end with a prayer of application. The beautiful pictures make you praise our Creator and the Scripture will draw you closer to Him.

I love a suspenseful novel, filled with twists and turns. Although this author was new to me, her storytelling kept me reading late into the night. Lone Witness was an excellent book with well developed characters and a fast moving pace. There were several unexpected turns in the story. Even though I had not read book one from this series, I did not feel lost. I will look for more of Rachel Dylan's books in the future.

Nancy Mehl's Blind Betrayal, the third book in the Defenders of Justice was another entertaining read. Action began almost immediately. And there were no slow moments throughout the entire novel. Even though I had not read book one or two in this series, I felt engaged and the characters were introduced well.

Although I am not a frequent fan of fantasy fiction, The Crescent Stone was compared to Narnia tales...and so I gave it a try. It was entertaining. It was well written. And it will probably appeal most to the young adult genre. Lessons were learned and adventure was experienced.

I received this book before it's official release from Tyndale in exchange for an honest review.

What a testimony. What a life well lived. What a beautiful tribute of a father. As I read Through My Father's Eyes, I couldn't help but praise the Lord for the way he used Billy Graham. What an encouraging, thoughtful read.

Candy Apple Blessings is an adorable board book, full of rhyming lines and bright colors. The fall theme of the different pages makes this a perfect addition to our reading time as summer ends. The kids loved the repeating action words and the colorful illustrations. It's a great size and kept their attention well. We hope to implement these fall activities into our play time, acting out the scenes from the book.

The Daily Question for You and Your Child is a cute hardback book with 365 dated pages. Each page has a question to talk through with your child. There are blanks to record their answers for three years. The cover has an inset pocket to include a picture in the cover. What a treasured collection of conversations this could become. It would be an adorable gift for a child or mother.

I AM - the Names of God for Little Ones. I love a board book that is full of learning points. My children are 3 and 5, and this isn't a baby book. We are loving looking at the different Bible stories where God revealed more about Himself through His names. What a perfect way for our family to learn more about our God.

Beautiful illustrations and Bible references are included with each name of God.
