When God Made You

I'm many years past my childhood, but children's books still remain my favorite read.  "When God Made You" is colorful, both in wording and art.  The pages catch your attention, and the gentle rhyme of the story takes you on a wonderful journey.  Perfect for any child (or grown up who will never grow up). We're never too old to hear that God made us special.  Order here:

Just Mercy by Bryan Stevenson

I don't have enough words for this book. It reads like a fantastic legal thriller, until you realize that this is not fiction.  I found myself angry one moment, and cheering the next. The pages take you on a wild ride through the lives of many who were unjustly convicted, even walking with the innocent on the way to the electric chair.  I hope that this work motivates many to "feed the hungry, clothe the naked, and visit the prisoner".  More information on how to buy the book, donate for the cause, or join the movement can be found at Bryan Stevenson's website

I received Punderdome, and was very excited to give it a try. It looks like a fun game for the family. Unfortunately, my family didn't see my enthusiasm and none were interested in playing. I even pulled it out on another night when they had friends over, but still nobody opened the game. So, I can't give you an honest review, because the plastic is still on the package.  I guess it was a "no go" with my older teen/young adult children.

Wonderland Adult Coloring Book by Amily Shen

I have absolutely zero artistic ability, so with the onset of the adult coloring book revolution, I was thrilled!  I've tried a couple cheaper adult coloring books, but all of the designs were basically the same, and I was quickly bored with them.  Wonderland is not like that. Page after page of creativity abounds!  The designs are intricate, and eye catching, and cute (who doesn't want "cute"?).  Based on Alice in Wonderland, the book includes a few short snippets to go along with the coloring pages, as well as an "I spy" page or two, to keep people like myself from getting bored.  I would recommend this book for adults, or older kids with good fine motor control and a pack of sharp, colored pencils.

Hiding In The Light

This is a 5 star book, and it got rave reviews elsewhere, I just couldn't get into it.  It is the story of a Muslim woman who came to faith in Christ, and how it affected her relationship with her family.

Effortless Healing by Mercola

It took me longer than normal to post the review for this book, because I felt like reviewing a diet book isn't enough. You should have to actually try it first.  OK, at least I intended to try it first.  Mostly the "trying" part lasted a few days, and the book has been collecting dust waiting for me to write the review ever since.  So, on to the review:  it is not like other "health" books I've read.  The chapters are easy to read and presented in such a way that they do seem possible to achieve. It stresses healthy lifestyle changes, some of which I would find easy, and others that looked like they were not a good fit for me. Like eating all of my meals in a 6 hour period.  Not gonna happen.  Mercola is well known, and I associate with many people who put into practice his ideas, and have had good success with their health.  Even though I absolutely failed at my attempt to utilize the principles within, there are many who have much more self-control who swear by these methods. Definitely worth the read.

Furry Logic

They do say good things come in small packages.  I have to say "Furry Logic" lives up to that in a BIG way!  What a darling little book! The artwork of the animals is absolutely amazing, and the quotes are relevant to everyday life.  I had intended to give this as a gift to inspire a friend, but I admit I fell in love with it and couldn't let it go. I suppose I will have to buy a second copy for her.  Highly recommended if you need a fun pick-me-up for a down day!  To read more about Furry Logic's 10th Anniversary Edition, or to buy a copy for yourself, go to:
