Book Review

I must say when I saw this it drew me in and with the description, I was definitely hooked. I heard a lot of Charlie Daniel's music growing up in my house. When I saw his book I knew it was something I had to give to our family. I did just that in giving the book to my Dad for Christmas. I also found a bit from his book about our attitude. I will share that excerpt from the book. "I know, of course, things will happen that are beyond our control, but so much of our lives are within our own ability to affect. What we do with our God-given talent, how we face the problems we are confronted with, and how we choose to view each new day is up to us. Is it just another twenty-four-hour period? Or is it another opportunity, another chance to move forward--a reason to rejoice?" I really liked this because we can sulk in what's going on or we can choose to change the attitude and move forward and enjoy the day and our lives. I think of the God-given talents that I have, some like what I do and others have discouragement that they always give me about what I do. They see what's wrong with what I do, they see the waste of time according to them. I will say this is a great treasure to have and a great book to give as a gift.

Overcomer by Dr David Jeremiah book review

Posted by Leah 0 Comments of Appreciation
I must say that this has been a great book to review. The opinions I will give are my own. A point that was brought out was about getting quiet before the Lord. How many times have you sat down to spend time with the Lord and have the music playing maybe the TV is on or just noise around you? I have and the time isn’t as quality time as it can be. When I get quiet and I begin then it’s as though the Lord adds His own way of keeping us focused that we think of or maybe hear music and continue to be focused. There were so many other things that jumped at me. When he spoke about David and Goliath. You really saw the sides of each of them. Goliath was more of size, shout, and sight. David was more of conviction, confidence and courage. You can see immediately between the two which you’d want to be. I would rather the heart of David, heart of conviction to keep me focused on the Lord, heart of confidence that I can do as the Lord has called me to do. The courage to not doubt, but to remain in Him and focused on what He has called me to do. 

Thanks for stopping by,

Let the fun roll...Book Review : Simple Joys by Candace Payne

Posted by Leah 0 Comments of Appreciation

Hi Everyone!! I just want to take a quick moment of your time with this book review. I received Simple Joys by Candace Payne. I was not familiar with her, then when I looked up "Chewbacca Mom" and the video that I saw with it oh my goodness my sides split. I was laughing out loud over the video. I dug into the book after watching the video and was very blessed with what I read and also appreciated the thought-provoking questions that Candace put there with journalling space so that we could respond to them was great. I also want to ask have you ever struggled with discontent? Have you been overwhelmed and struggled with being happy? I know at times I have been overwhelmed and struggled with putting that smile on so that no one around me knew I was overwhelmed or struggling. When I change the perspective and find the simple joys, the time of overcoming something that seemed maybe impossible or that I wouldn't. I think of how I felt when I did. Being able to smile, face the next day with a smile, face the days with laughter just really changes your perspective. After reading Candace's book it reminded me again to keep looking for the joy, the simple joy in things around me. I would recommend this book as a gift or one to add to your own personal library.

Unshakable Hope Promise Book by Max Lucado

Posted by Leah 0 Comments of Appreciation


Hi Everyone!!! I just wanted to take the time to share this review with all of you. I have been looking for a book for my teen son-something to help him to grow. I prayed about it and this came available. We jumped in and we were blessed. I enjoyed the questions posed at the end of the short readings. My son said he didn’t always enjoy them because they really made him think and some were hard for him. I am thankful for that as a parent. Not that they were hard for him, but that they challenged him. I will be sharing the book with our youth pastor and let him decide if he wants to bring it to the youth. I would encourage you to get this for your teen. I’m glad we have this resource available. Thanks for stopping by.

Once Upon A Farm by Rory Feek

Posted by Leah 0 Comments of Appreciation


Book Description:

Now raising their four-year-old daughter, Indiana, alone, after Joey’s passing, Rory Feek digs deeper into the soil of his life and the unusual choices he and his wife, Joey, made together and the ones he’s making now to lead his family into the future.

When Rory Feek and his older daughters moved into a run-down farmhouse almost twenty years ago, he had no idea of the almost fairy-tale love story that was going to unfold on that small piece of Tennessee land . . . and the lessons he and his family would learn along the way.

Now two years after Joey’s passing, as Rory takes their four-year-old daughter Indiana’s hand and walks forward into an unknown future, he takes readers on his incredible journey from heartbreak to hope and, ultimately, the kind of healing that comes only through faith.

A raw and vulnerable look deeper into Rory’s heart, Once Upon a Farm is filled with powerful stories of love, life, and hope and the insights that one extraordinary, ordinary man in bib overalls has gleamed along the way.

As opposed to homesteading, this is instead a book on lifesteading as Rory learns to cultivate faith, love, and fatherhood on a small farm while doing everything, at times, but farming. With frequent stories of his and Joey’s years together, and how those guide his life today, Rory unpacks just what it means to be open to new experiences.

“This isn’t a how-to book; it’s more of a how we, or more accurately, how He, God, planted us on a few acres of land and grew something bigger than Joey or I could have ever imagined.”

My Thoughts:

This book is a heartfelt story written about Rory and Joey and their relationship. The heartache that Rory felt after Joey's passing. Now he is raising their four-year-old daughter Indiana. I will tell you this with the stories you will read in this book will make you laugh, you will be excited, cheer, you'll cry so make sure you have that tissue, well, the box of tissues nearby. You will need them. I was lead to this one because I do know Rory and Joey's story so when I saw this I had to read it. This will remain in my library of books and will be passed around to others to read as well. I appreciated Rory's unflinching honesty and willingness to share his life in these pages. This is a book I will pick up again and read. Thanks for stopping by. I hope you will pick up a copy for yourself.
