NKJV, Apply the Word Study Bible, Hardcover, Red Letter Edition

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 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

A Caregiver? Me?

A Caregiver? Me?

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

The Berenstain Bears Bear Country Fun Sticker and Activity Book

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

The Little Red Book of Wisdom

The Little Red Book of Wisdom

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 ...

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

Couples Who Pray

Couples Who Pray

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

Sabbath

Sabbath

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

A Year with God

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.
