My Thoughts on Defending the Line

I choose the Defending the Line: The David Luiz Story (ZonderKidz Biography) because I was interested in a good biography for older kids that also shows the faith and character of an individual. I had never heard of David Luiz before, and this book definitely taught me more.

The book is a very easy read, and I think it is a great read for boys ages 10-12. I think boys who enjoy sports and soccer, then they will find this biography interesting. I don’t know if it is because I am not a huge fan of soccer that made me a bit bored throughout reading the story.

Another thing I found disappointing was that the book did not focus that much on Luiz’s faith and character. Overall, I think it is a good read for boys into sports. If I had an older son, I would definitely want him to read this opposed to the other junk available. So while it is not as big of a faith lesson as I thought it would be, it is still a good clean read.

My Thoughts on I’ve Never Been to Vegas

I opted to review this book because it looked like it was going to be a hilarious read. While I’ve Never Been to Vegas but My Luggage Has definitely had some funny parts, it wasn’t really my type of read.

I think many people would definitely enjoy this book, but like I said, it didn’t mesh with my personality and beliefs.

The book seemed to be written by a superficial Christian. I of course do not know where she is in her faith, but she just seemed worldly and threw around a lot of cliche Christian sayings. I also did not like her reliance on dreams for her success.

Like I said, it could just be me. I married young and had kids young. The thought of having celebrities follow me on Twitter or interviewing celebrities isn’t appealing – just very worldly in my mind. I am not trying to be judgmental, just showing why I am not the type of audience for this book.

Please note that I was given this book by the publisher in exchange for an honest review.

Little Pilgrim’s Progress Review

Even though I have never read the original Pilgrim’s Progress, I knew I wanted a family version that I could share with my kids in the future. I think Little Pilgrim’s Progress: From John Bunyan’s Classicis the perfect fit for that.

Even though I may have had a deeper meaning of this book had I read the original, I still loved the retelling of this story. It is a story that can be retold many times throughout your children’s lives, and I am positive they will get something new each time. It is full of Christian allegory that is fun to talk about with older kids, and all kids will love the adventure of the story.

The story is just captivating for young kids and adults alike. I especially love the shorter chapters that make it easy for nighttime reading.

Beyond Bath Time Review

I was a little surprised at how short Beyond Bath Time: Embracing Motherhood as a Sacred Role (True Woman)
was when it arrived, but don’t let the size fool you, it packs a powerful message.

It was encouraging to read. I always need reminders that my staying home is not just about “babysitting”, but that I am actually making a difference for my children’s souls.

The only thing that I didn’t care for in the book was the addressing to people who don have kids. It’s not that I disagreed with it, but I know if I didn’t have a child, I probably wouldn’t pick up the book to begin with.

I definitely recommend this book to all moms, especially new moms. This shift in motherhood has happened and I truly believe the social media and Pinterest are too blame. Some how many of us moms have gotten into our heads that we have to be perfect. I know I struggle with it daily, so I am thankful for this book.

Beyond Bath Time: Embracing Motherhood as a Sacred Role (True Woman)is sure to hit a sensitive nerve with many moms, but don’t let that stop you from hearing the message. Ask the Lord what He wants you to take away from the book. I know for myself, there were several things talked about in the book that I had to address in my own life, although it was hard. Truth can be hard to hear, but how much better are lives are when we align them to God’s will and truth!

101 Color & Sing Bible Stories Review

I was super excited to receive 101 Color & Sing Bible Stories
. My daughter is almost two right now, so this book was a lot of fun for her to look through. I really love this book because it implements coloring pages, the Bible story, and songs. It is perfect for Sunday school classes, Christian schools, and even parents.

My little one is really into coloring right now, so it has been a lot of fun to read her the Bible story while she is coloring. She has also been enjoying the songs that come with it.

I think this would also make a great gift for any little one 5. 101 Color & Sing Bible Stories
is beautifully illustrated and comes with a nice puffy hardcover. There are just so many Christian kid products out there, but most of them are just junk. I am happy to say that 101 Color & Sing Bible Stories is not junk.
