The Hum of Angels

I requested the book The Hum of Angels as my choice for review on Blogging for Books.  I enjoy reviewing books for them in exchange for a complimentary copy.  After reading and reviewing I share the book with my co-workers and then we place it in our little free library we have outside our office.

The author Scot McKnight leads us through an eye opening vision of the bible and the angels around us.  His understanding of the bible encourages us to view not only visually but by using all our senses.  

I know that my co-workers will enjoy this book and will open discussions.

Life After - A beautiful book for all ages!

I was hesitant to read and blog about this book from Blogging for Books after reading it was a Christian Romance.  I had an appointment at the car dealer for a recall.  I grabbed the book and brought it with me.  In a very busy and quite distracting waiting room I started this book.  Lost in the pages, I found myself immersed in the authors wonderful story of survival and guilt.  Autumn is such a torn woman who is desperately searching for closure only to find herself deep in a touching tribute to the lost.  I look forward to reading more books by Katie Ganshert.

Unexpected Harvest

First let me start by saying the photography in this book is top notch.  The directions for the unexpected uses of your "harvest" are quick and easy to understand.  From facial scrubs to tea to other creative ideas, this book is filled with inspirational ideas.  I know just the person who will LOVE this book and put it to good use!  If you have a garden, you need this book!

This book is called "Harvest" by Stefani Bittner & Alethea Harampolis

Tough As They Come - Travis Mills

When I first started reading Tough As They Come, I don't think I was prepared for the raw and straight forward story unfolding.  Travis's determination and strength are the cornerstones of his survival and recovery.  This book starts out catching your attention with his incredible story of his injuries.  Through the book you learn of his life prior and the strength he draws from.  I will be sharing this book with friends and encouraging them to read it.

Your self help guide to change

When you open Shaunti Feldhahn's book The Kindness Challenge your first thought might be "I am already kind".  Shaunti gets you to re-examine your relationships.  This book will help you begin a 30 day transformation that can only help you to become more thoughtful in your interactions with everyone in your life.  While most of the book focuses on marriage, these exercises can be used in all situations and relationships.

Where was this book when I needed it?!?

This weeks book review is Conscious Uncoupling.  I was a bit skeptical when I ordered this book from the choices but it turned out to be much more valuable than I expected.  There is even a section on a mantra.  The little quotes scattered throughout the book are inspiring and worth noting for future reference!

Junie B Jones Hits the Stage !!

I had no idea that there was a musical version of Junie B Jones.  This just took one of my daughter's favorite characters to a whole new level. The songs are fun and make you want to move.  This will be fun to see when local schools catch on and do this as their musical production!
