    I am always on the look out for books for the kids.

    God Loves Mommy & Me | Story Time Via Skype

    I got this book, God Loves Mommy & Me came in the mail today, so I Skype the kids while they were on Spring Break. When we packed everything up and put it all into storage, I had a bunch of books for the kids. Since the kids live in Virginia with their dad, I’ve been collecting books for them for the last two years. I would read them the books via Skype chats, it’s the little things like that – for that brief moment, everything feels normal. So I thought I would try to reach the kids, I was able to get a hold of Jacob & Jr –…

    5 Self Help Books To Take Back Your Life | #FiveFavoriteFriday

    I’ve been on this whole, “taking my life back” phase for the last 3 years. I’ve never really been much of a book person, until I realized books can take your mind off of how crazy your life is or you can take a break from it. Here are 5 self help books that can help you take back your life. I just checked out the 3rd book on Amazon, it’s more of a journal type book, than an actual reading book. Those are my favorite kind. I reckon I can make a new post about it, when I get done with it. I added a few other self help…

    When Jesus Was a Green-Eyed Brunette: Loving People Like God Does

    I love when you’re able to judge a book by it’s cover, when I first picked up When Jesus Was A Green-Eyed Brunette by Max Davis. The Christian life is not a matter of behaving like Christ, but of allowing Christ Himself to live in and through us.

Those hurting and weary…
