A little story about a little book for little ladies

I’m always on the lookout for books for my girls with good storylines. Things that spur them on to be better kids and to see that there are other kids in the world like them. When I find something good, I like to share it with others...and I’ve found the best way to share it is to get the local library to purchase their own copy! So, when Natalie Grant published two books, I asked our public library to order them and they did. Sweet! Now any kid can find these while they browse the juvenile fiction section of our library. The story gets sweeter when I saw Grant had written a third volume, so I downloaded a copy onto my phone. 

Miracle in Music City is about a set of sisters and their mom in Nashville and the funny things they find themselves doing. They love solving mysteries, just as any girl does! This is a fun read, a good one to add to your vacation reading list for your kids. 

As far as e-books, I come back AGAIN to the point that my kids and I do not enjoy them. We had to keep reminding ourselves that this book was stored on my devices. I thought having it with me all the time would mean that we would read it when we were waiting for piano lessons, soccer games or other appointments, but we didn’t. I don’t know if we will ever enjoy the e-book format, so for now, I will be sure to only get physical copies of the books I want us to read. 




Thanks BookLook for a free download in exchange for an honest review.

Standing

I’ve been reading Strong and Weak by Andy Crouch with my Facebook reading group over the last few weeks. He defines “flourishing” differently that I would have initially, but after his explanation, I agree with him. My paraphrase of his definition is doing the thing that requires risk and all of you- and doing it with abandon. It doesn’t really matter if you succeed from the perspective of the onlookers, it doesn’t matter if you’re the best at it, it doesn’t matter if you entirely fulfill your goal. It’s the heart behind what you do, it’s the motivator for why you do what you do. 
I kept comparing his definition of flourishing to parenting initially, as did some of my friends who are also reading the book. Parenting is tough. It is a daily sacrifice and servanthood to little people who may or may not ever know. It’s a stretching past limits I previously thought I couldn’t reach. It’s relying on Jesus in a way I never knew...because I simply want to do it better than I’ve seen it done b…

Book Review- The Look and Tell Bible (A board book for littles)

Have you seen this cute board book of Bible stories? It’s called The Look and Tell Bible by Dawn Machell. It’s actually a well-made (can take a lot of rough and tumble play,....which is a good thing at my house!) collection of 11 Bible stories. Each story gives you a page of illustrations with their key words, so when you read the text, the child can fill in the key words by looking at the image. This is a great book for the pre-reader and beginning reader, as well as for the older siblings to read to the littles. I love how it’s interactive and asks that the child be involved in the story-telling.  We have a huge stash of books at our house and I plan on making room on our shelf for this one. I might hide it away in my Christmas hiding spot for my youngest this winter. 

Thanks BookLookBloggers for sending my this cute book in exchange for my honest opinion.

Book Review: Hidden In My Heart Scripture Memory Bible

I am always on the lookout for a cool Bible to give to my kids or to our college students. The classic, straight forward, nothing-but-the-Bible is a must, but sometimes it is fun and motivating to have additional studies, information or lists throughout the Bible. Tyndale Publishing House recently released a Bible called the Hidden In My Heart Scripture Memory Bible, in the New Living Translation. 
The Hidden in My Heart Bible comes with a download code for 100 free scripture memory songs, because we all know that singing something helps most of us remember it easier, after all. I was a little hesitant about the quality of the songs, but I figured I would give it a try anyway. 
As far as the Bible goes, it is a nice size and weight and I think the scripture memory helps throughout are nice. Tyndale included a list of the first 100 verses to memorize, which go along with the songs included, and a challenge list to memorize after you’ve done the first 100. Additionally, the Core 100 ver…
