Beneath a Prairie Moon by Kim Vogel Sawyer

Beneath a Prairie Moon by Kim Vogel Sawyer releases from Waterbook on March 20, 2018.

If you like the historical/Christian/fiction genre, this one is for you!

When I read the first chapter, I thought that this was going to be a predictable book. While some of my predictions definitely came true, it was a great read with several unexpected twists and turns. Definitely discovered a new author worth reading!

No One Ever Asked by Katie Ganshert

No One Ever Asked by Katie Ganshert and published by Waterbook release April 3, 2018.

Wow. Really just wow.  What an excellent book that was inspired by real events. It is story about two school districts, one impoverished and one affluent, who are required to merge when accreditation is lost at the impoverished district.

This book tells the story of three families who are affected by this merging.

This book challenges our prejudice and encourages us to accept others for who they are.

I highly recommend this book. So grateful to have a chance to read it.

It's Friday...

Love the end of a workweek, how about you? There's something satisfying about accomplishing a week's worth of tasks, and then getting to forget about them over the weekend. :)

I don't know about you mama's out there, but this time of year is so busy, and calendar management is so important.  But sometimes, we are so busy, we just need to put our foot down and say "no" to a lot of good things so that we have time to be together and invest in our family (the "great" thing).  What are your thoughts?  How do you decide what to say "yes" to and what to say "no" to?

Hope you have a happy Friday and don't forget to enter the giveaway over at The Evolution of Mom.

Dusting Off the Ol' Blog

Well, it has been absolutely forever since I last blogged.  Two and a half years.  A lot has happened in that time!  J is now as tall as I am and has braces.  Tim's been to the west coast and back for an amazing mission trip...and me, well, not much has changed in my world...

However, I've had a couple requests from folks (you know who you are!) to start posting, but the final encouragement is a giveaway I've entered with The Evolution of Mom blog (seriously, check it out!). They are doing a black Friday giveaway for an iPad, and BOY, could I use one.

I had some $ saved up from a side job to buy one, and then poof, my hubby's car needs a new engine. Bye, bye $.  So, I am going to cross my fingers and hope I win.  So I am dusting off the ol' blog so I can get another entry.  :)

So Blessed!

I am truly a blessed woman!  I have so much to be grateful for...I could go on and on and on...

This past week, my son came down with the flu, and lucky me...I got it as well.  Thankfully, I have an employer who gives us sick days (as well as the ability to work from home).  What a blessing!

Then, I have wonderful friends who sent e-mails offering help and prayers.  Friends who stopped by and left warm bowls of soup at my door.

And then there is my hubby who has been relegated to the couch this week.  Poor guy!  He's stopped and picked up prescriptions, ginger ale, etc...  What a champ!

J went to school today and I slept the day away until I had to pick him up. I finally feel like I have returned to the land of the living.

But in the midst of it all, I again realize...

I am blessed.  So very blessed!
