Anne Graham Lotz The Daniel Key Book Review

Posted by Leah 0 Comments of Appreciation

 Good Morning Everyone! I wanted to bring you the review of this book by Anne Graham Lotz, The Daniel Key. When I read this I felt that it would be very similar to a book I read by Robert J Morgan. I found that to be correct in ways. Daniel was honored by God, protected and trusted. His faith did not waiver from those who were against him, serving new kings in power, or even confronting hungry lions. How can you have the kind of faith Daniel had? Daniel made 20 key choices in his life. Those choices took him down a path to a closer relationship with the Lord. Also godly living to all around him. Daniel's choices can be our choices. There was a story that struck me in a powerful way. The story was about crossing Niagara Falls. Oh, this is a mighty trek for sure. However, this had a different plot twist to it. The tight rope walker made it across the falls. He then was going to attempt to push a wheelbarrow across. He asked do you think I can do that? The crowd cheered him on with great confidence that he could do it. Then the tight rope walker asked if anyone would volunteer to ride in the wheelbarrow across the falls. There were none. The tight rope walker explained that faith is more than just words. Faith is action. How quick are you going to show and act on your faith-or are you just going to be one of words? I will be one with faith in action. 

Grace & Peace,

The Better Mom Book Review

Posted by Leah 0 Comments of Appreciation
I was given this book for review, my opinions are my own.  They are not at all influenced by the company that provided the book. I am a Mom of a special needs child and love every moment with him. This book speaks on grace, it's not just about what we are doing; it is about what God is doing in us. It is who God is inviting us to become in the process. Mothering is messy. Our joy and hope in raising children does not change the reality that being a Mom can be frustrating, stressful, and tiring.  Just as God is using us to shape our children, God is using our children and motherhood to change us. I found this very encouraging. The work of motherhood is a high calling. It is full of goodness, adventure, fun, hard work, and sacrifice. At times even overwhelming. 
I found in reading this there were many nuggets to pull from here and apply to my life with our son and in our family. I found that in doing that our son has opened more and also we are closer as a family for applying more things like this. I would recommend this book for a small group for moms. 

Grace & Peace,

Have Dog Will Travel by Stephen Kuusisto

Posted by Leah 0 Comments of Appreciation
 Good Morning Everyone!! Hope you’re having a great start to your day. I have been reading this book off and on as I have been dealing with some medical issues that prevented me from reading when I wanted to. Seemed as though when the book would hook me and I couldn’t get to the next page fast enough that’s when I couldn’t read it. I can tell you this is a great book. I highly recommend the book. This book has made me cry at points, laugh out loud and even say “ouch!” at times in the book as well. This really tells of Stephen’s journey through life with him being born blind and learning to navigate in a seeing world. When he meets his beloved seeing eye dog Corky - you just fall in love with Corky. You learn of how demanding of training that Corky had to go through to be with Stephen and how they had to learn to work together as a team. I saw Stephen on our local channel promoting his book and saw his new companion Caitlin. She’s beautiful! I must say I have had the pleasure in meeting Stephen’s wife and enjoy her friendship. I hope to soon meet Stephen and Caitlin in person. This book is a great read, while it will tug at your emotions throughout the book - I recommend purchasing a copy of your own. I will be getting another copy to give as a gift. Thanks for stopping by. 

Grace & Peace,
