Let’s All Be Brave: A Book Review

Just this past fall, I had the opportunity to participate in my first Bloom book study.  Lucky for me, because we read Let’s All Be Brave by Annie F. Downs. Let me just say… LOVE LOVE LOVE! I cannot say enough things about this book.  And none of them are negative. So if you were hoping for a negative review…sorry.  You’re not getting one. Many of you know that I am currently on a journey that came out of 12 years of ignoring God’s calling.  Part of the push that led me to step about and follow with blind faith…

Children’s Book Review: Sleep, Big Bear, Sleep by Maureen Wright

This week, Rapunzel brought home a new book from the school library called Sleep, Big Bear Sleep by Maureen Wright.  I have to say this is probably the best book she's brought home from school.

This book was not only well written, but it was a fun, imaginative story with fantastic illustrations by Will Hillenbrand.…

Book Review: The New Strong-Willed Child by Dr. James Dobson

I must say that I enjoyed this book, The New Strong-Willed Child by Dr. James Dobson, much more than I enjoyed the last book I read. While many seem to side against corporal punishment these days, Dobson does not.  He does this by providing research to support his position.  While unfortunately some individuals take corporal punishment to the extreme by punishing in anger and sometimes progressing to abuse, Dobson stresses that corporal punishment is not to be taken lightly.  The proper way to do so is by applying one smack on the rear end using a neutral object (not in anger…

Book Review: “The Myth of the Perfect Mother” by Carla Barnhill

So, about 3 1/2 years or so ago...I started reading this book called The Myth of the Perfect Mother: Rethinking the Spirituality of Women by Carla Barnhill.  I finished it today, and I had such an opinion about it that I just had to share.  And maybe I'll continue to share other opinions in the future. So this book.  I got a few chapters into it and decided I hated it.  Actually, I read the first couple of pages and disagreed with her opinions but figured it might get better later.  And then a few chapters later...decided it wouldn't rectify itself.  But…
