On 8/9 QuietMom wrote: I only heard of Rory and Joey about 6 months before their decision to stop any more treatment. I was touched by their story and have occasionally watched as Rory has continued on in live with his sweet little one and without Joey. This book is very raw and honest at some points. And while I can’t ... Book Review – Once Upon a Farm
On 7/30 QuietMom wrote: Totally girly and sparkly and with the full New King James Version bible text - this bible is a win/win for the most part. I’m usually not a huge fan of child focused bibles, but like this idea a lot. If you’re looking for simple text for beginning readers, this isn’t ... Sweet bible for young ones with full NKJV text!
On 7/2 QuietMom wrote: ...I’m also a fan of getting bibles into the hands of kids as soon as they can hold it respectfully and not just rip the pages out. So the idea of a sparkly cover and a special bible just for little girls intrigued me. Indeed I can imagine many a young girl eagerly receiving this bible from a parent ...

On 6/26 QuietMom wrote: This is a lovely bible. While I’m not a minister, I can see how having the various helps in the center of the bible would be a nice benefit and the tabs make it easy to access. It has scripts for weddings, funerals and more.The leather touch is really nice and, of course, I love that it’s the King ... This would make a great gift!

On 7/25 QuietMom wrote: I appreciate the study notes but think the bible itself is mis-titled. Yes there are little “application” challenges throughout but it’s really not a bible that focuses on applying what you read to your life as implied. That said, the feature articles are for the most part, not bad. I guess for ... NKJV Apply the Word Study Bible Review
On 5/3 QuietMom wrote: I really enjoyed this book and had a hard time putting it down. It's a quick read but really well written with wonderful family memories, reality and a nice balance of serious/humor. Can't wait to share it with my friend with WV roots! You find if you leave it on your nightstand, you’ll be getting ... Very enjoyable read!
On 4/26 QuietMom wrote: If you’re a pug fan looking for a great story about pugs and the life of a cute and naughty little pug, I fear you’ll be disappointed. Yes, the pug does make an appearance (several do) but the one that the book is about – indeed, the one that the subtitle references as ” a ridiculous little dog, ... The Pug List
On 4/18 QuietMom wrote: This is a very easy to read book and would make a nice reference for someone who is dealing with a spouse or close family member who is terminally ill. Lynda Bush shares her heart and her experience in straightforward style and I appreciate that. There are some really good suggestions given throughout ... Reads like a letter or diary

On 4/4 QuietMom wrote: In typical Berenstain fashion, the illustrations are simple and cute - and quite colorful. There are a lot of different activities including mazes, matching, counting, crossword, coloring and more. For a thin paperback it's pretty extensive. The age range is 4-8 - I think a 4 year old would need some ... The Bear Country Fun Sticker and Activity Book
On 3/10 QuietMom wrote: I wasn’t sure what to expect with this book as I had not heard of the author or her previous books, but since I have two young adult daughters, I thought it might help me as I understand what they might be thinking in this stage of life. I’ll admit, I’ve not read the book cover to cover yet, but ... Beautiful Uncertainty – book review
On 8/1 QuietMom wrote: Is there any really “new” in this book? Probably not. The author takes his wisdom principles, for the most part, from scripture and experience and as we all know, “there is nothing new under the sun.” But I like that, in many cases, DeMoss is countercultural. Counter “business as usual”. ... Definitely a book to keep
On 6/24 QuietMom wrote: Although this book took me quite some time to get through, I think it’s a great book for every history buff (or not) out there. Vickery gives a ton of detail about Washington’s career prior to, during and after the war including his time as our first president which makes it a little tough for the ... Great for families to read together
On 5/3 QuietMom wrote: I really enjoyed this book. Although I will joyfully listen to anything Mozart, weep at the 2nd movement of Beethoven’s Pathetique, and rejoice while listening to and singing along with Handel’s Messiah, my favorite classical composer, by far, is Johann Sebastian Bach. He’s my favorite not only ... Really enjoyed the book but...
On 4/5 QuietMom wrote: There are a lot of people who won't like this book. There are a lot of people who will start to read this book and not finish it because the words "radical Islam" are in the first sentence of the introduction. It's too bad. This is a good book and an eye opening one. And while I may disagree on a lot ... A lot of people won't read it - but should
On 2/7 QuietMom wrote: The official book promo states “takes readers step by step through the 40 day prayer challenge”. Um, no, actually, it doesn’t. The book takes the reader through 150 plus pages of celebrity stories ... and that’s about it. While some of the stories were inspiring, it just got, well, old. No ... Disappointed
On 2/1 QuietMom wrote: I was really looking forward to reading this book. After almost twenty five years of marriage I am still always looking for ways to understand my husband more fully and love my husband more deeply. Unfortunately, I wasn’t too impressed with what I found in this book. Although some of the stories ... What's He Really Thinking
On 1/18 QuietMom wrote: I’ve never met a Chesterton quote I didn’t like. That said, I haven’t read that many Chesterton quotes. Until now. This book is full of golden nuggets of wit and wisdom. Since I’m always looking for quotes to send off in emails or written letters, this book is a treasure to keep close by. ... Keep this one handy!
On 1/5 QuietMom wrote: Although I enjoyed reading this book, and even enjoyed some of the practical ways the author celebrates the Sabbath, I was very disappointed in the lack of scriptural support for most, if not all of his points. The book starts strong, stating that the Sabbath is still valid as one of the ten commandments ... Enjoyable but disappointing
On 12/9 QuietMom wrote: Although I don’t agree with MacArthur on some issues (eschatology) we are alike in that he teaches from the Reformed view. I’m guessing that some people who pick up this book will take issue with the parts of the book that discuss this -- specifically predestination, but I urge those who do not hold ... A must read
On 11/4 QuietMom wrote: Although it's clear in the beginning of the book that this is a devotional focusing on the Old Testament, and I actually like that because often in Christendom the Old Testament is minimized, the lack of focus on Christ in the devotional writings is more than obvious. Take, for instance, Day 11 on page ... A Year With God by R.P. Nettelhorst
On 10/15 QuietMom wrote: This is such an adorable book! Although I’m one to advise parents to read the real bible (yes, the long one … and even the KJV version if you want!) to your children no matter how old they are, it’s always nice to have a selection of adorable supplemental bible focused books for your kids. ...

On 10/6 QuietMom wrote: I wasn't quite sure what to expect when I received this book in the mail last week.

On 9/21 QuietMom wrote: I was very excited to get this book. The couples of our church watched the DVD series by the same title and it was excellent so having the book in my hands is an extra treat.

On 9/10 QuietMom wrote: Full of great examples and sound bites, this is a fast read even for an average reader. Unfortunately my brain does not like this sound bite style of writing where most sentences are less than 5 words long and many are incomplete. After a while I got tired of reading and found myself skimming. Still ... Outlive Your Life - a Quick Read
On 9/7 QuietMom wrote: I’m giving the book 3 stars. One star for the interesting story of Chamberlain, one star for the easy read and one star for the premise and overall good feeling of the book.

On 8/10 QuietMom wrote: I was eager to get this book and immediately started to read it through to find out how in the world the author, Roger Troy Wilson, lost the weight and how he has managed to keep it off by "eating all the calories and carbs you want to lose weight". It seems to me to be sort of a modified Atkins/South ... Let's Do Lunch by Roger Troy Wilson
On 8/2 QuietMom wrote: Although I wasn't overly bowled over by this book - as I'm not a full time sales person with quotas, etc., I appreciate the author's desire to turn all of life, including the day to day struggles, etc., over to the Lordship of Christ. He uses a lot of scripture, cleverly uses the old army field manual ... Jungle Warfare - A book for SalesPeople
On 7/15 QuietMom wrote: It's a beautiful book and a surprisingly easy read. It may take a while to get used to the way Denver "talks" as you read but probably not. I love the back and forth between the two stories in the beginning before they meet - getting the full history. Here's the official book description: A true, ...

On 6/3 QuietMom wrote: The translation is the NCV or New Century version which is not a version I've had in a bible before. Being a King James fan (I love the language of the King James) this translation is a bit "casual" for me, but it does read very nicely. The commentaries are geared specifically toward fathers and are ... The Dad's Bible
