Same Life, New Story

Same Life, New Story

On 4/20 Alicia wrote: "Move from what is to what can be by changing how you think and talk to yourself" is a description of the book found on the book jacket.

Plain Promise

On 1/6 Alicia wrote: This is a great Christian fiction book, set in Amish country. I give it my recommendation! It is light enough to enjoy as a "lazy day" reading, but the characters have depth which makes the reader want to know about them and care what happens to them. Each main character, and several "supporting" ... Book Review: Plain Promise by Beth Wiseman

This Is Your Brain On Joy

This Is Your Brain On Joy

On 4/21 Alicia wrote: Very rarely can I find a book that approaches a topic with medical expertise, sensitivity to a person's hurts, and acknowledgment that what our deepest need is God (and to know him intimately).

On 12/23 Alicia wrote: Boomtown: Chang's Famous Fireworks, set around 1950, is a story about...well, several things actually. I have to admit, the biggest problem I had with the book is it's just trying to do too much. Kids will enjoy the antics of the townspeople and the various ways things go "boom"! But they won't understand ... Book Review...Boomtown: Chang's Famous Fireworks
