Forever Mom

On 1/20 Adventist Homemaker wrote: I loved this book so much I read it in less than two days. I just couldn't put it down. I laughed, I cried, and I marked sections to go back and reread later. This is more than just a "how to adopt" book. It covers the transition of a new child into the home and how to connect with your child over the ...

The Jesus Bible, NIV

On 4/9 Adventist Homemaker wrote: I was really excited when I found The Jesus Bible available for review. I ordered it for my soon-to-be daughter. This Bible is recommended for ages 9-12.

Next Door Savior

Next Door Savior

On 1/14 Adventist Homemaker wrote: I’ve been reading Max Lucado’s books for a long time. During my freshman year of college, I had a dog-eared copy of one of his books on the life of Christ. I don’t remember the title of the book, but I remember how powerful it was. The book would make me cry. Lucado has a way of portraying God ... Next Door Savior - A Book Review

December 1941

December 1941

On 8/16 Adventist Homemaker wrote: I have nothing to say that hasn't already been said. Terrible editing that yanks you out of the narrative. A supposedly inaccurate portrayal of history.

On This Day in Christian History

On 12/6 Adventist Homemaker wrote: I had a hard time choosing between this book and another "this date in history" book titled The American Patriot's Almanac.

Sarah's Garden

Sarah's Garden

On 7/2 Adventist Homemaker wrote: When I saw that Sarah’s Garden (Kelly Long) was available for review, I was intrigued. A combination of gardening, quilting, and a true to life portrayal of Christianity cannot go wrong. I thought the writing was vivid as I could easily imagine the scenes taking place. The ending was to be expected, ... Sarah's Garden - a review
