LitFuse Blog Tour Review: Stepping On Cheerios by Betsy Singleton Synder + GIVEAWAY

LitFuse Blog Tour Review: Stepping On Cheerios by Betsy Singleton Synder + GIVEAWAY

My Thoughts As a mom of two teenaged boys, I find it hard, sometimes, to find time to do anything. It’s a hectic, crazy time being a mom! It’s hard to make sure they are taken care of, go to work, come home, cook dinner, spend time with them and my husband, and still find God time. It really is hard sometimes. But, my mom said something once, and this book kind of reminds of it. She told me “Jesus came to you, why can’t you go to Him?” That’s so true. Why can’t I make the time to seek Him out no matter what whirlwind parenthood throws at me?  Ms. Synder takes the hustle, bustle hectic life of being a working mom, wife, and child of God, and tells us how she found the strength to deal with it all. She creates this book in a way that is never boring, always leaving me with a chuckle. Learning to put God in the center of all and realizing that this crazy thing we parents call life is not that hard if we put Him at the front of all we do. I definitely enjoyed this fast, interesting read. Ms…. Read more »

Review: Friends, Partners, and Lovers (What It Takes to Make Your Marriage Work) by Kevin A. Thompson

Review: Friends, Partners, and Lovers (What It Takes to Make Your Marriage Work) by Kevin A. Thompson

My Thoughts:  I’m married to my best friend. That’s what I tell people who don’t know me and want to know who my husband is. He’s my best friend. When we met, I was leery of another relationship. My first marriage was not the greatest. Too many bad things happening. I didn’t trust any guy. But, my husband patiently persisted and one day I took a leap of Faith after praying hard, and 4 years later we are still married. Do we fight? Oh Lord, do we ever! But, one thing  I can say is we stay friends through it all. We work our problems out. We seek advice if we need it. We never give up.  Kevin A. Thompson is an author I’d not heard of before, so I wasn’t quite sure what to expect with this book, especially with it being a non fiction book. I have to say I was pleasantly surprised! He takes three key aspects to making a marriage work and tells us why they work. It’s definitely something I have taken to heart and really want to work on with my husband! The way Mr. Thompson describes these aspects really make me reflect on… Read more »

BookLookBlogger Review: This Life I Live by Rory Feek

BookLookBlogger Review: This Life I Live by Rory Feek

My Thoughts I didn’t just love this book. I loved this book. It’s moving. This book isn’t just a biography of Rory Feek’s life. It’s the story of a true love, that will last beyond death. A love that is strong and unbreakable no matter the circumstance. It is a book that left me smiling, and left me with tears. This is a book that will be with me forever and I will turn to it many times over.  As a woman who is married to her best friend, I couldn’t imagine going through what Rory did with Joey. I wouldn’t be able to stay strong and move on. It would be too heart shattering, in my opinion. But, through reading Rory’s story, I know I can do it. I know I can remember the good things, the fun times, the inspiring moments that my best friend left me with. Rory’s story is filled with hope and faith. The way he talks about Joey is incredibly moving and I loved feeling a part of his life, if just for a little bit.  Reading this book, however, opened new feelings for me! I followed this story closely, especially since my husband… Read more »

The aspects of this book are wonderful and really leave the reader thinking things through.
