Book Review: One of the Few by Jason Ladd

    When Mr Ladd contacted me and asked me to read his book, I immediately said yes because I wanted to learn more about what my friends and family members who are Marines go through.  I figured it would help me understand them more.  While I did gain some knowledge about what it takes […]

Book Review: Mirror Images by Laurie Norlander

I love a good suspense novel.  The inner detective in me tries to figure things out before the ending and this is one of those books that had so many twists and turns that I was totally wrong in my guesses!  It was a bit confusing at first trying to figure out who was who […]

Book Review: Downside Up by Tracey Mitchell

A few months ago I received Downside Up by Tracey Mitchell to review for Booksneeze.  I was excited about reading it because I thought it would help me learn how to deal with rejections I have experienced in my business but I quickly discovered that this book focused on personal rejections that we experience in life […]

Birthday Bash 2013 Intro

Woo-hoo! It’s time for my annual Birthday Bash where I celebrate my birth month by giving YOU great gifts! Like I said on my Facebook Page, this was not my first choice out of the MANY takes we did trying to shoot it but it was the only one I could get to actually upload so […]

Book Review: Love No Matter What

I chose to review Love No Matter What: When Your Kids Make Decisions You Don’t Agree With because I am a mom of teens. Simple as that. Ok, not so simple… one of my teens is 18 and I spent the 6 months before she reached the age of adulthood wondering if I had done […]

Book Review: Faith Leaps

     I “met” Alyssa online a couple of years ago and have followed her ever since for a few reasons. One is because her website has a lot of purple (which I read in the book is her favorite color! Woo-Hoo!) but mostly because everything she does is what I want to do…I want […]

Book Review: Stumbling on Open Ground

    I chose to review Ken Mansfield’s Stumbling on Open Ground: Love, God, Cancer, and Rock ‘n’ Roll because of the topic…Cancer.  I thought it would help me to as co-chair for the Relay for Life of Tipton County better understand some of the things the survivors I work with go through. Ken was the American producer for the […]

Book Review: Hope Springs

I received a copy of Hope Springs by Kim Cash Tate to review in June and I don’t know why but I didn’t get a chance to read it until this week.  I have to tell you, the timing was perfect not only because the story starts off on December 23rd, the same day I started reading […]

Book Review: Need You Now by Beth Wiseman

From the first sentence, I was drawn in by the way the author, Beth Wiseman, writes.  She keeps your attention and makes you long for more. I wanted to know what was going to happen to the characters next so I could not put this book down! The main story is about a family who recently transplanted […]

Book Review: Stained Glass Hearts by Patsy Clairmont

 Patsy Clairmont shares her broken pieces of life with the readers and uses them to show that Christ can take all of those shattered dreams and make a beautiful work of art, like stained glass. At the end of each chapter, she has an “Art Gallery” where she points the reader to visual, musical, and […]
