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.

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.

NKJV Faithlife Illustrated Study Bible Review

Posted by Leah 0 Comments of Appreciation
I must say that this Bible is definitely packed with so much great information and illustrations that studying the Word is more fun. You get on chases that take you so deep in the Word you don’t realize how much time has passed and you come away within so much more knowledge than you had at the beginning of your study. I really enjoyed the genealogy timeline for clarification on the relationships and who was part of which family. I liked the timeline of events as well as it kept things in order for me. I also liked the pictures of things in there to tell you about them and inform you when they were used. I enjoy using this Bible with my study times and reading with friends and family. I would definitely get this for a gift for someone. The quality is there with the Bible.

Grace & Peace,

Stronger Than The Struggle Book Review

Posted by Leah 0 Comments of Appreciation
Good Afternoon Everyone! Hope you're having a great day. I have yet another book review for you.  This book was given to me to review the opinions are my own. I chose this book to review because I was reading a series of books that fell into this topic and thought I could pull some gems from it which I was indeed able to. This book left me refreshed. It was just what I needed. The book left me with inspiration, laughter and practical advice that I could apply to my life. I know it changed my perspective on faith. I am stronger in faith. I have fought many battles with my bone disease and thought at times this was the end, but God showed me it wasn't and friends placing certain books in my hands also helped me along this tough journey. I was so blessed to be able to review this book as well. This book also helped me and gave the tools to go to battle. Even though the war has already been won we still have to fight daily. I love books that are hard to put down and this was one of those books. I will read it again. Thanks so much for stopping by.

Book Review : The Strength You Need by Robert J. Morgan

Posted by Leah 0 Comments of Appreciation
I was given this book for review. The opinions are my own. I have read other books by Robert J. Morgan and found them to be very enlightening, thought changing. I read the Red Sea Rules first, then Live More Worry Less and now The Strength You Need. 

I have enjoyed each of the books. They each affected me on so many different levels. I found when I was in a tough spot when I couldn't walk when I was dependent on a wheelchair, a walker, I continued reading the books. When other challenges came, the not knowing if I had bone cancer, if I had a more severe form of my bone disease I was dealing with again the books affected me on so many levels and drew me in closer to God, taught me to press in harder, lean in on Him.  These books seem to have been brought into my life just at the right time, I needed them. When I needed the strength to go on. I am glad that I had the opportunity to review these books, but also to be able to add them to my home library and have them available for others that may need them.

Grace & Peace,
