Stay Close Little Girl by Karen Kingsbury

Stay Close Little Girl by Karen Kingsbury

This book is perfect for fathers and daughters. It brings out the things that father’s feel when they see their new little girl for the very first time and watch her grow. The special moments shared between a daughter and her father can be found within the pages of this book. I recommend this book for every father out there who wants to give their little girl something meant for only them to share. It’s something that will show her just how cherished she truly is by the man God gave her to protect her and love her and cherish her. The man she calls Daddy. Another tear jerker, but highly recommended with praises!!! *This book was purchased at a bookstore by me*

Over the Holidays by Sandra Harper Blog Tour Preview and Review

Over the Holidays by Sandra Harper Blog Tour Preview and Review

About the Book:The best holiday traditions are meant to be broken.It’s only December 1, and Vanessa Clayton has been dreading Christmas since she spotted tinseled trees at her local mall in September. Thankfully, she and her husband, JT, can’t afford to drag their twin boys across the country to New England for the annual celebration at her stuffy sister-in-law Patience’s home. Not that Vanessa has prepared a proper Christmas for her family in years, and she has less time than ever since she agreed to consult on the script of a local play. Her older sister, Thea, is no help — she’d rather make art and flirt with surfers than babysit her nine-year-old nephews. Then Patience drops a holiday stress bomb: Her family will come to California instead.In between “baking” cinnamon rolls for the school potluck and overbearing Patience testing her patience, Vanessa can’t stop thinking about the difficult but charming playwright at work. Meanwhile, Patience’s teenage daughter, Libby, obsesses over a college boy she has met by the pool, and Thea searches desperately for the meaning of Christmas — for her latest installation, of course. As their holiday plans go comically awry, these four women discover the true spirit… Read more »

A Climate for Change by Katherine Hayhow/Andrew Farley Giveaway

  About the Book:Global warming: it’s one of the hottest scientific and political issues of today. And yet we’ve all found ourselves asking . . .– It’s freezing outside–where’s global warming now?– Climate is always changing–how do we know this isn’t just a cycle?– Why should Christians care about global warming when we know the world won’t end that way?For all the talk about climate change, there’s still a great deal of debate about what it all means, especially among Christians. A CLIMATE FOR CHANGE offers straightforward answers to these questions, without the spin. This book untangles the complex science and tackles many long-held misconceptions about global warming.

Let Me Hold You Longer by Karen Kingsbury

Let Me Hold You Longer by Karen Kingsbury

This childrens book is one that you will need to use tissues with when reading it. A great childrens book, yes, but it’s also good for those of us who are parents. Karen Kingsbury tells of what it’s like to remember the last things in your child’s life instead of all the firsts we all almost always gush about. She captures the little moments that are most often forgotten, like the last time we held their bottle, or the last time we held their hands when they learned to walk. When I read this book, I cried. I cried because I had to think, really think, about the “lasts” of my children’s childhoods. It was something that was hard for me to do because I was always more concerned with their “firsts”. But Ms. Kingsbury showed me that even the lasts should be held onto because they grow up fast and won’t need mommy to hold them longer. While this is a truly wonderful childrens read to show children the love, it’s perfect for opening the adult’s eyes to cherish EVERY moment their children. Highly recommended!!!! *This book was purchased from a bookstore by me*

Uh Oh!

Uh Oh!

Ok, I have a warped sense of humor so I thought I’d play along. Behold, the puking pumpkin. Kinda gross right? But yet, funny too!Here are the rules:(1) It’s your turn to “ghost” three other bloggers — perhaps, somewhere you haven’t commented, in a while, or a blog you’ve NEVER commented on before and is new to our blogging community.(2) Stop by their blogs and leave a comment on their latest post saying:“You’ve Just Been Ghosted — Come Over and Grab A Puking Pumpkin!”(3) Copy and paste the puking pumpkin somewhere on your blog (either in a post or on your sidebar, perhaps) so that everyone can see that you have been “ghosted” and will NOT “ghost” you again. This will also let you know who you can “ghost.”I’m going to “ghost” these 3 bloggers:Bingo @ Bookin With BingoVicki@ Reading at the BeachLibby @ Libby’s Library News
