Bend Your Brain {A review}

Bend Your Brain {A review}

I am not fond of jigsaw puzzles. I have a take it or leave it mindset with them. I rarely get sucked into doing a puzzle. My girls love them, my friends love them.

But if you’re talking brain puzzles. Oh I’m your girl. I love them.

And I hate them.

I love when I get the right answer. I hate when I have to look at the answers in the back first.

Three Rivers Press has published a book, Bend Your…

Making Sense of the Senseless

Making Sense of the Senseless

If you’re aren’t fond of honesty, you might want to pass right over this post.  Honestly. I won’t be offended in the least. Mainly because I’m sure I’ll never know if you read it or not, but more to the point because sometimes the words inside my head just need to get out, so I can examine them more closely. I have no real idea where this blog post is going today. All I know is what is in my head…

Before Amen by Max Lucado {A Review}

The Power of a Simple Prayer.  Max Lucado admits he is a prayer wimp. Or as he actually states in the opening pages of his book, Before Amen, he is a recovering prayer wimp.

A Series of Unfortunate Events

A Series of Unfortunate Events

That is what I named my calendar today. Not that I think it truly is a series of Unfortunate events, not all. But it’s just a funny name for a calendar.

I’m not a very organized person. I’m usually pretty happy if my socks match. And are folded. In the drawer. My oldest wonders how on earth I’ve lived this long without being “properly” organized. She takes Type-A to a whole new level. And that is…

Urban Watercolor Sketching

My youngest child has quite the artistic flair.  I’ve posted some pictures of her artwork and she continues to work at it and improve.

Most of what she does is  pencil sketching. I wanted her to branch out a bit and try new mediums, so I requested Urban WaterColor Sketching to review through Blogging For Books.  When the book arrived, she immediately took it from me and I’ve only been able to…

Sadie’s Stitching

Sadie’s Stitching

I’m having a love affair.

It’s true, and I’m freely admitting it here for all the world to see.

I am in love with….

slippers.

Yes, slippers. Okay really all-things pajama, but especially slippers.

Slippers are the one “shoe” I can wear that covers my feet in the summer without my toes complaining, longing to breathe free.  It’s like they know it’s summer and summer means slip-slops…or flip-flops…

a beautiful defeat by Kevin Malarkey {A Review}

I’m not going to lie, sometimes books scare me.  I am finding I have little or no patience with books I don’t agree with; those books that are written more to make one feel good than to make one see the need for a Savior and change. Those books that say, “God is a God of love and He loves you just the way you are. You have no need to change anything about you. You’re perfect just as you are. God…
