All Things Bright and Beautiful: Review and Giveaway!

By: Melissa Baker

All Things Bright and Beautiful is a wonderful children's book that captures the beauty of nature and all things created By God. The colorful pictures and vivid detail really describe the awesomeness of God's creation, every single one of them! My kids loved this book and I would recommend it to anyone who has kids, especially those that are learning about God's beautiful creations!

About the book:
First published by Cecil Frances Alexander in 1848, this favorite hymn has become a mainstay of
churches and Sunday school classes everywhere. Here artist Katy Hudson brings new joy to the
words with her fresh and bright watercolor style. Readers can join in the fun as they follow two
little girls and their brother on a day filled with the discovery of “all things bright and beautiful.”

About the artist:
Katy Hudson was raised in Middlesbrough, England, and started her career as a small child
drawing on freshly painted walls. Her parents quickly encouraged drawing with pencil and
paper instead. The idea stuck, and after earning a degree in illustration, Katy is now a freelance
illustrator. Katy works at a desk in a studio within Old London Library and likes to tap dance in
her spare time.

Specs:
Jacketed hardcover
Page count: 32

Unashamed: Healing our Brokenness and Finding Freedom From Shame (GIVEAWAY!!)


Shame. It's everywhere! We all experience it in one way or another. We experience shame for many different reasons... sin, body image, failures, relationships, etc. In this book, the author explains different types of shame and how to overcome and heal in the brokenness and shame we face. Every chapter begins with a scripture, quote or phrase that pertains to the type of shame that the chapter is about. And at the end of every chapter, there are questions for reflection and discussion to help you better understand and work through what was just read. I found this book to be extremely helpful and it had great insights for someone who may be dealing with these issues. This is a great resource for healing and hope. I would encourage anyone who is experiencing shame or brokenness, for any reason, to read this book. 

About the book:
Unashamed: Healing Our Brokenness and Finding Freedom from Shame offers hope to those struggling under the burden of shame. This book shines the life-giving light of the gospel on the things that leave us feeling worthless and rejected, directing our attention to the God who promises to forgive and restore us—no matter what.

Would a Worm Go On a Walk: Book Review and Givaway!!


I have had the privilege to read this book to my sons, and they loved it! They repeatedly asked me to read it again and again. It was a very cute book and I loved it as well. It is a great story with silly characters and bright colored pictures. In this book, we are reminded that God created each and every one of us to be unique and that we each have our own purpose, even the animals! We are God's masterpiece! It even has a scripture reference at the end which I love! I would highly recommend this book to anyone who has kids, especially kids from ages 2-7. 

About the book:
“Would a worm go on a walk, if you could lead him down the street? / Would he wear his tiny tennies, if he had two worm-sized feet?”
So begins this humorous and imaginative picture book that introduces children to the idea that animals are uniquely created by a loving and wise God. Would a Worm Go on a Walk?, with its colorful, comical illustrations, is a fresh, fun way to teach young children that God created all things very good. He gave all the animals, and children, too, wonderful qualities and unique strengths. Children will giggle over the ridiculous scenarios presented, and they will come away with the knowledge that we all are loved and special.

About the author:
Hannah C. Hall is the author of best-selling children’s books, including God Bless You and Good Night and God Bless Our Christmas, as well as an award-winning blog, HannahCHall.com. Hannah lives in Prairie Grove, AK with her husband, Josh, a worship pastor, and their four children.

By: Melissa Baker

I Have recently had the privilege of listening to Phil Wickham's new CD, Children of God. I must say, I enjoyed it very much! My Three sons were listening to it as well and they were excited to hear it! My youngest son was even dancing around the room. Our family has always enjoyed Phil Wickham's music and with this album, it was no different. I really enjoyed this CD and any christian family would enjoy it as well.

Mother and Son: The Respect Effect- Review and Giveaway!!

Lately I have been struggling with the "respect" issue with my 
oldest son. He is growing more and more stubborn the older he gets. I love him with all my heart but there has been a huge lack of respect, on both sides. This book has really been beneficial and has opened my eyes when it comes to how I parent and show respect to my son. Just like grown men need to be respected and honored, our little men need that as well. I had no idea it was such an important thing to my growing boys. This book was very informative and helpful. I love how in every chapter, it tells you specifically how to show respect or talk to your boy... It has different instructions/
suggestions on how to deal with both the older boy and younger boy. And it has all of the biblical resources in each chapter as well, which is so important! This book has really been an eye opener and has made me think twice about how I respect and talk to my sons. I highly encourage any mom, no matter the ages of their sons, to read this book! It will definitely improve your relationship with your son!

About the Book:
A new book from W Publishing Group/HarperCollins asks you to consider the all–important mother/son relationship in a new way: respect, as in the mother should respect the son

About the Author:
Dr. Emerson Eggerichsauthor of Love and Respect – a landmark book that transformed millions of marital relationships – is launching his latest book, Mother & Son: The Respect Effect.
In Mother & Son, Dr. Eggerichs proposes that while showing love is important to a son, showing him respect is key to his heart, and what will transform the mother/son relationship. Of course, to a lot of people, that will sound backwards – shouldn’t it start with the son respecting the mother??

Since the importance of the mother/son relationship crosses all age/race/religion barriers, this is a topic applicable to all – regardless if they agree or disagree with Dr. Eggerichs’ method.

Wise Guys: Book Review and Giveaway!!

Let's face it... We need great men in our lives. Men who are Godly leaders, men who are full of integrity and honor, men who are full of wisdom and men who are of good character. The problem is, there aren't too many good examples of this type of man left in the world. They are very hard to find sometimes. Men need to surround themselves with these types of guys and learn from their experiences. They need that extra guidance sometimes. But there is a lack of resources that help men with this in their lives. That is where this book comes in handy. In this book, men can be encouraged, informed, and mature in Godly wisdom. If they don't have a mentor or Godly men in their circle to learn from, this book will help. The author walks us through experiences and lessons of his own that men would find very helpful and valuable. This book is a very good resource for men and I would highly recommend it to every man in my life!
About the Book:
For guys, more than ever, it’s a confusing world. Your GPS doesn’t offer any maps showing how to get to the point of wisdom — and who likes asking for directions anyway?
But there are ways to get that guidance you need. The answers may be all around you, in the form of guys you already know. Wise guys. More experienced guys. Better-traveled guys. Could there be ways to tap into their invaluable knowledge without enduring dull lectures or taking pages of notes?
Kent Evans has surrounded himself with these wise guys. They have shown him all the back roads on the way to wisdom. With a great deal of humor and an endless supply of stories, he wants to show you how to gather life-enriching truth from the guys in your own circle.

About the Author:
KENT EVANS is the board chairman and co-founder of Manhood Journey, a ministry that helps fathers and mentors build the next generation of godly men.  Kent has personally experienced how the guidance of godly men can change the course of a life.  Today he is blessed with a solid 20-year marriage, four wonderful sons and a fulfilling life – largely because of what he’s learned from other men.  He lives in Louisville, Kentucky, and can be found on Twitter @manhoodjourney.
