For years I never imagined God as my hero, but now I feel differently. God is my hero, He died on the cross and took the punishment for my sins.
This book is about about two young amazing loving women, who write about the good and bad in their journey , but also showed much courage with their faith.
Throughout this book it also showed through the darkest of our times in our lives that we can handle any situation
I was given this complimentary book in exchange for an honest review for B&H Publishing.
This week I have been thinking about Christmas Memories and what it meant to me growing up. I can only remember a few gifts I got growing up but what I remember more are the Christmas traditions we had.
Christmas Eve growing up we used to go around to the Uncles and Aunts houses and gather as a family and I always looked forward to going to each house and eating food. We would always end up at my grandparent’s house last after everyone had gone to church, but growing up Catholic we usually didn’t stay long because as we got older we went to Midnight mass! I loved to just being with my family especially at that time of year.
Christmas Day we would get up early and open gifts and then go to my grandparent’s house for dinner followed by sometimes visiting the Uncles and Aunts which was always so nice to do.
Then I always looked forward to after Christmas because we would go to my Aunt Susie’s house where we celebrated Christmas with my mom’s side of the family. We would play games, eat lots of food and open gifts.
What Christmas Memories do you have?
The author Sarah Mae gives a great viewpoint in her book on 31 days to a clean house and a satisfied soul. The author talks about finding that balance while keeping a home and also being a good homemaker.
Each topic in the book was related to cleaning and gave great insight from her own struggles At the end of each chapter she gives a challenge question and also a Bible verse to focus on.
Giddy up Eunice by Sophie Hudson shows us as that as women we need to separate what focuses on us whether it would be the way we parent our children, career goals fashion goals, and even opening our eyes to what God has given us with friendships and who is around us.
She gives a biblical approach and compares relationships in the Bible.
Annie Downs writes and honest book about life experiences and shared her deep struggles with food and everyday life. She shows us how God puts beautiful things in our lives and directs our paths.
It is hard when you are struggling with the “broken crazy” but Annie gives some great examples to go through each day through the broken crazy and gives a new perspective on life.
The Battle Plan of Prayer is one that I needed to read because of my prayer life. Watching the movie War Room and knowing you should do your battling or fighting in prayer really convicted me as a believer.
The one chapter in the book talks about scheduling of prayer. Mark 6:46 says “After bidding them farewell he left for the mountain to pray” KJV I never thought of scheduling to pray or making prayer part of my daily life until recently. Prayer is powerful and I believe in 1 Thessalonians where it says” Pray without Ceasing” KJV
We are encouraged as believers to pray without ceasing and we pray knowing God cares about us but also looking as prayer as a priority and passion as it says in the book.
Committing to prayer as part of our daily routine keeps us focused.
I received this book as a gift to give an honest review.
I have always loved Duck Dynasty and their Christian morals!. This is a great read for anyone. For me I love how this book talked about Character traits, and how to instill them in our children. Korie Robertson is straight forward on her beliefs and parenting her children.
By training up our children we are showing them to be strong and Kind when they grow up.
Raising children can be such a joyous time but as I look back so far I can admit I am not a perfect mom. I have yelled, cried, thrown my hands up in the air because I just didn’t know where to turn. But I do know that trusting in God to get me through those tough times and also the strength of my husband got me through.
This book kicked me in the shins a few times, as I have to admit I didn’t know what gratitude even looked like in my home with two special needs boys. Plus I have another son from a previous marriage.
The author is very open with her own journey of raising kids and making mistakes just like us.
I was so honored to be a part of the launch team for this book!
