I received a copy of Mom Seeks God Practicing Grace in the Chaos in exchange for my review. All opinions listed are 100% my own.

Have you ever had one of those moments when you just want to throw your hands up as a mom and say I quit? I have been there quite a few times when my kids were little. Both of mine were so rambunctious, and being that we homeschooled them, we were together 24/7. Sometimes I felt like a total failure as a mom, but then there were those times that during it all, I found grace — grace to love them, grace to forgive myself when I lost it, and grace from the only One who gives it.

I received an electronic copy of Maybelle in Stitches in exchange for my review. All opinions listed are 100% my own.

One of my favorite movies of all time on television is A League of Their Own? Have you ever seen it? It’s about the women’s baseball team that was formed when all the men were off fighting the war. That movie makes me laugh and I also cry.

That is exactly what I felt when I read Maybelle in Stitches.

I received an electronic copy of Dancing With Fireflies from Litfuse Publicity. All opinions listed are 100% my own.

When I started reading this book, I was drawn in. I immediately liked Jade. She is a tough Christian girl and to deal with all that she has had to deal with in her life — well — let’s just say, she is a much stronger person that I think I ever could be.

I received a copy of A Sky Without Stars in exchange for this review. All opinions listed are 100% my own.

I have really enjoyed reading each book in the”Quilt Of Love” series. I love how each book in the series is written by a different author, giving us the ability to get a feel for their writing style, and how they weave a story of love and forgiveness around a quilt.
The fact that I love to quilt, sew, and crochet — is one reason why I love this series so much.

I received a copy of The Devil Walks in Mattingly in exchange for this review. All opinions listed are 100% my own.

I am a sucker for a great suspense novel, and this one fits the bill perfectly. As a thriller, The Devil Walks in Mattingly, hooks you in immediately — right from the get go.

You know something strange is going on, and that a seriously terrible secret is being hidden, however Coffey keeps you guessing. He feeds you just enough information to leave you hungry and wanting more. He creatively lays out the story to keep you on the edge. I seriously LOVE this story!

I received an electronic copy of It Had to Be You by Susan May Warren in exchange for this review. All opinions listed are 100% my own.

It Had to Be You is the second book in the Christiansen Family series and one that I truly enjoyed. I really loved this book. I am a huge hockey fan (GO PREDS!) so as soon as I started reading and found out hockey was involved, I couldn’t put it down.

Okay ladies — I am totally preaching to the choir on this one — because I need this post as MUCH as you do. As you know, I work from home as a blogger and writer. Last year, I did that on top of working for someone else online and it really caused me a TON of stress that almost cost me my health. I took some steps to help me balance things out, so I thought I would share with you how to balance your work at home life too.

in exchange for my review. All opinions listed are 100% my own.

I have been reading Terri Blackstock novels since I got saved back years ago. She has always been one of my favorite authors! In her newest novel, I just could not put this book down. I read it all in less than 24 hours — it is THAT good.

I received a copy of Say Goodbye to Survival Mode in exchange for my review of them. All opinions listed are 100% my own.

I woke up one morning and could barely open my eyes. My body was screaming at me to just stay in bed, but I knew I had SO much I had to do. I had to get my work done online for the company I was working for, I had about 4 blog posts of my own that were due, 3 loads of laundry that had to be washed, dried, and folded, and I had to drive my daughter an hour away to a friends house.

My life was seriously hectic and I was running on fumes — and then I heard about Crystal Paine’s book –Say Goodbye to Survival Modeand I desperately wanted to feel that — experience that.
