New Tasty Treat!

Ok, I have to admit...I LOVE Girl Scout cookies! I don't need them, just eat them! I'm guessing I'm not the only one. I have heard rumors of these new treats and finally found them today at Walmart!

These are cookies but like a crunch candy bar. I wondered if there was any way they would taste similar. I have to say, they taste exactly like them! We got the Thin Mint and Peanut Butter Creme (like the Tagalongs). My son liked the Peanut Butter ones the best, I can't make up my mind for sure, I guess it will take a lot more tasting to decide:)

Just thought I'd share this with you all! Great especially when we still have months to go before the originals come out!

A Wedding to Remember in Charleston S.C. by Annalisa Daughety

Sometimes in life, our biggest struggles are in direct conflict with what we are expected to be an expert at. This is where we find Summer. She is the owner of a wedding planning business. She and her co-worker, Ashley, do a great job on the weddings, have great success and love what they do. In her personal life though, Summer and her husband, Luke are dealing with some major struggles. In the past year, they have had to deal with many heartbreaks. When they find themselves unable to communicate the depth of their grief, they find themselves pulling away from each other when they should be drawing closer.

The return of Summer's former boyfriend complicates things even more. He somehow finds himself in places where he not only can grab some of Summer's attention, but also manages to pull Luke farther away from Summer. He finds that this can work to his advantage and maybe even work in his favor.

Ashley also has trouble of her own in the relationship department. A new man in her life causes her to deal with her past divorce and work on moving past it, which she isn't sure she can.

Through the struggles of marriage, Luke moves out to handle things by himself. Luke and Summer both see this as a temporary solution, because they are still very much in love. This time apart allows for some much needed soul searching. Will this separation keep them apart or can it be the one thing that allows them to find themselves more committed than ever?

As we follow them through their struggles, we catch a glimpse of their future. When they both allow God to be the center of their lives, they find themselves able to communicate on a more heart level. They learn that God is there for them in the hard times as well as the good times.


This is book 1 in a book with 2 full length books titled "Waterfront Weddings". In this first story, was an amazing story of marriage. I'm sure we have all had relationships that have gone through struggles, and in some way can relate to these characters. I felt a pull into the story which really made me feel a part of the story. I found myself cheering for some characters, while wanting to yell at others. I feel that is a good sign when you really connect with the book.
The characters have great depth to them. The overall story not only keeps your attention, but has good messages throughout.
I look forward to reading the other story and can't wait to share with you about them also!

Song Share time : It Is Well - Todd Fields & Horatio Spafford

Something different today! We sang this song a couple weeks ago at church and it is the song that comes to mind whenever I am going through a struggles. I just thought I'd share it with you all.
The words to this song were written by Horatio Spafford. He was a man who had suffered numerous losses in his life. He knew what it was to suffer. After already losing a son to scarlet fever, he wrote this song immediately after learning his daughters were all lost in a boat accident in 1873. Knowing they were saved for a reason, Horatio and his wife, Anna, went on to do ministering all over the world.
This video is courtesy of youtube. There is another one which shows more detail about his life, but I wanted to share this one with lyrics. The basis is that no matter what we are going through, God is with us always. It's easy to think that during the "good" times, but the true test comes when we are in the midst of a storm.

Hope you enjoy!

Your Daily Bible Verse by Rachelle Ayala

Another great book by Rachelle Ayala. For my previous post by her, search in my March archives under the title " Hidden Under her Heart ". For me, I wake up and plan on spending time in the word, and have the desire to do just that...then life gets in the way. What I really liked in this book, were the daily reminders. There is a verse for every day of the year. Each verse corresponds to the month and day that you are on.

For example, on February 8th, the verse is Ephesians 2:8 : For by Grace are ye saved through faith and that not of yourselves, it is the gift of God.

Every day you have a different verse you can memorize.  Do you want a special verse on a certain day? Maybe for a Birthday, or a day to remember? This book is perfect.. It's easy to find the day and the verse to go with it.

The verses might not always be what you would choose for a certain date, but they are always a starting point and can help lead you to search the Bible for more verses.  All verses are in the King James Version. For me, I prefer a different version without the "ye" and "thou" but that's just me:)

I highly encourage you to get this book. While it's not a devotion with stories or anything, It is definitely worthwhile to have. It would make a great gift for someone, or a way for not only you, but maybe a family memorization time.

A Hopeful Heart by Amy Clipston

A Hopeful Heart is the first book in a new series called  
"Hearts of the Lancaster Grand Hotel". 

When Hannah finds herself a young widow, she tries to help support her family by working housekeeping at a local hotel. Although her Mother in law is against her having a job outside the home (it's not typical for Amish women) ,She really enjoys her job and co-workers. 

When she begins to befriend a male guest, Trey, who has suffered similar losses, she learns the difficulties and reasons why the Amish prefer to keep to themselves and not become involved in the English world.  Hannah and her Brother in law,Joshua,have been working together to keep the farm going, but when  Hannah starts including Trey in her life outside the hotel, Hannah is seen as trouble and the trouble starts to affect her children.

To complicate the situation, Joshua is in love with Hannah. When she finally realizes that, she is also falling for Trey. Through many trials, Hannah finds herself in the midst of a difficult situation which could affect her whole family. Her choices could cause her to be shunned and to lose family members if she follows her heart to leave with Trey. She loves Joshua, but feels more of a friend to him and a way to keep her husbands memory alive. How will she make the right choice? What IS the right choice for her and her family?


This book is a great read! I again found myself reading late into the night because I couldn't put it down. My sleep pattern is losing out to great books!  I felt this book to be a very realistic view of life, love and choices. Whether you are Amish or not, there are decisions we make every day that affect not only us, but those around us. In this book, we find a balance of both sides of the choices Hannah must make. I enjoyed the characters throughout. I found myself liking some of them and disliking others. Although the Mother in law seemed to be more on the manipulative side, I'm sure that by seeing it from her side we would find her heart and reasoning. Amish life seems to be rooted in very strict rules that they are supposed to follow without question, which would be the side of the Mother in law. Hannah is choosing to follow her heart and see what God has for her, whether it's to stay or go she will follow God. I love how there are discussion questions in the back. This would make a great book for a book club. I would give this book a 5 out of 5 stars. I highly recommend it , and already looking forward to book two of this series.

Kiss Me Awake by Julie Momyer


When Jaida was a baby, she was left by her biological mom in the bushes. When a young boy, Spencer, finds her, she is brought into his family. Spencer vows to protect her and care for her forever.

Fast forward to now. Jaida is delving into discovering who her mom really is. She doesn't know her name, but is desperate to find out what she can. While working as a detective, Jaida is searching not only for her mom, but also desperately trying to learn about and take down a man named Gale. She thinks he is a murderer and has a tie to her past.

Jaida and her co-worker Auggie are on Gale's trail. Gale is accusing their company of stealing 8 million dollars and thinks Jaida has it.  In the midst of all that's going on, Jaida finds herself in the middle of a conspiracy that is full of drama, suspense, mystery and intrigue. When Spencer returns to her life, Jaida finds herself dealing with her own past alongside finding out things which change who she is and what she thinks.

When she finds herself and others in danger, Jaida finds herself searching for truth. Praying for God's will is the hardest thing she has had to do, but the most important thing.


This is a wonderful story of not only suspense and intrigue, but also of redemption and forgiveness which is creatively intertwined throughout the entire book. I loved the path of twists and turns the book took. So many things you are not expecting.  I found myself getting excited when learning new things and realizing how it all made sense.
Not only is the book written well, it is very descriptive. You are given a great picture of what is going on and where you are.
This book kept me engaged the entire time. I had a hard time putting it down!  I highly recommend checking it out.

Things I learned this week

What happens when a mom of an only child agrees to help a family friend and watch her 4 children?  Crazy and fun things occur!

Here are some things I have learned.

1. Little girls will eat anything. They will lick salt off the table and call it their "pills"
2. No matter how many times you tell them to stop picking apart a plant, they will continue to pick at it
   until the plant overturns and lands under the table with the dirt everywhere.
3. When you multiply the number of kids by the noise they's LOUD!
4. When you have a storm that knocks out the power in the middle of the night..little girls scream! But
    then all the kids (including mine) do everything they can to make them feel safe. Love that!
5. You should always have flashlights for said storm in a place that little kids can't hide them, that way
    you don't have to search in the dark for an hour to find them:)
6. When teens hang out, they can always find uses for things. Birthday candles become s'mores makers.

7. Teens love action movies. Over 2 days we covered 5 Marvel movies. This being after little girls        
8. I learned more about video games from the teen boys than I ever wanted to know!
9. I am still not a morning person.  Early mornings just reinforced that!
10. Teens still like to win at card games.
11.  Kids of all ages have endless energy! 

I love the great memories made with friends. Minor mishaps just make things more entertaining!

Birthday Times Newspaper

What a great way to honor someone on their birthday with a special and unique gift! In The Birthday Times, they are able to provide some fun memories of the day of a loved one's birth.  

I really was excited to be able to review this. My son turned 16 last week, and I chose his name for my complimentary copy. I wanted him to have something different for this significant birthday and this was the perfect thing. He had fun looking over the page and seeing what was going on around the world on the day of his birth.  

Here are some of his comments: "It was a lot of fun to read the facts and to see what I knew", "The article about the president visiting was hilarious!" The only thing he wasn't sure about was the picture of beer. He's only 16 and we don't drink either, so he thought maybe for kids birthdays there should be an alternative picture in place of beer.  

Overall I really enjoyed the newspaper. On the front page, there are 8 articles about a variety of topics. There are some black and white pictures to go along with some of them, making it resemble a newspaper in a realistic way. I think it would add even more if people had options of some things that were in the newspaper, or if they could add a picture of the actual person. 

Don't miss out on this fun way to celebrate someones birthday and be the "talked about" gift!

Grace Given by Beth Shriver

      In this book, we find Elsie and her family trying to find their way into a new community. They have moved from Virginia to Texas only the previous year. While learning to follow the changes of the community, and dealing with vandals hitting the Amish farms, they also are dealing with a family issue.  
Elsie's sister Katie left the community with Jake, and Elsie finds this especially hard because she thought their was something growing in her relationship with Jake. 

      Thankfully Elsie has a good friend in Gideon. He has been interested in Elsie for a long time and enjoys being there for her, and also hoping that Elsie will grow to love him. 

      Through circumstances with the English vandals, Elsie and Gideon find themselves growing closer as they search for the truth.

      When Katie returns, emotions run wild. In an already stressful time, we find yet another situation that requires faith, grace and forgiveness. Choices must be made and struggles met to do what is right.
Amazing story of love and forgiveness.

My Review:

I would give this book 5 out of 5 stars. I find myself intrigued by the Amish culture and enjoy reading books which give insight into their lives and why they choose to do things the way they do. This is Book 2 in the series "Touch of Grace" by Beth Shriver.  I read this one realizing that I had not yet read Book 1. Although I plan on going back and reading Book 1, I don't feel that not reading it first caused any difficulty in understanding what was going on in this book. I would recommend reading in order though, but that's just how I usually like to do things:)
This book is well-written, and kept my attention well past times that I should have been sleeping! Beth Shriver always puts together wonderful stories and I am thrilled to have the privilege  of sharing this one with you.

Genesis Devotion by Nicole Halbrooks Vaughn

      Over the years I have read many different devotion books, from the standard short paragraph ones with a question and verse at the end, to the in depth ones where you are searching the Bible in detail.

      What I found with this devotion is a fresh new perspective. This devotion is different from other ones I have read. There are no questions to answer, but a lot of verses throughout and wonderfully worded prayers at the end of sections. They are great reminders to always be in prayer.

      Each section is filled with worded illustrations of the stories in a way that makes it easy to relate to.
They show how the stories in Genesis are still relevant today. I loved the personal touch the author added which gives the material a relatable aspect.

      We learn the great stories of the beginning, with the reminder that God will never leave us. The rainbow after the flood shows his love for us. Another important thing I came away with was the fact that our salvation is personal. We can't save anyone else. It takes a personal obedience to Christ for it to be real. We can put our faith and trust in God for everything.

      With the authors honest writing and ability to weave all the great truths into a book that is easy to read and understand, I look forward to reading more devotions on other books!

Ma Mi Skin Care Sunny Days Mineral Sunscreen Giveaway!

Perfect thing for those hot summer days! Check it out!
Ma Mi Skin Care Mineral Sunscreen SPF 30 Giveaway!
Read the full review by Rebecca at Love2EncourageYou.     943102_566471283375310_687192095_n       The Ma Mi Skin Care Sunny Days Mineral Sunscreen with SPF 30 got the ultimate test in my opinion. It did a great job protecting our skin while we took the family out in the Florida sunshine and 85 degree weather at SeaWorld in Orlando, FL. We were walking all over the park, riding rides and sitting in the stands in the sun most of the time watching the various shows with the dolphins and whales. It was nice not having to worry about getting sunburned knowing this product does such a great job with coverage.   Medieval Times May 2013 113   I tried the product on my arms, face and neck, and my mother tried it on as well in the same areas. We both forgot about reapplying half way through the day as we were having too much fun with the kids, but by the time I remembered it had been several hours and we still ended up staying protected. I did not get sunburned and neither did she. We like the way the sunscreen has a soft, refreshing scent to it. The color is pleasing in a light tint of pink. The product application seems to go on thick like a paste or thicker formula sunscreen, but I think that is why it kept our skin protected. It still rubs into the skin just fine and apparently does a great job with blocking the suns rays.

An Amish Family Christmas by Murray Pura

I think I have a theme going with Amish stories! Realized that when I saw the last 2 books set for reviews were Amish:) I have to admit, although I could never live the completely simple life they promote, sometimes a simpler life sounds peaceful. I'm not sure I could live without certain electronic things but I love the idea of community, family and support they encourage.

In this story, we are brought in after a horrible tragedy. Naomi is dealing with the loss of her parents, and also her brother, Luke, who wasn't killed, but was injured, and is catatonic. Rebecca, Naomi's sister in law, lives with Naomi and is helping her cope. They are figuring out how to care for Luke when their lives come to a complete stop. Naomi's husband had taken off for the Army life, which is forbidden for the Amish, a year ago.  He now returns knowing he is most likely under the bann, meaning he can't eat or speak to anyone, including his wife.

Naomi and Micah have to learn to live as husband and wife without the ease of words. Although difficult, they are able to learn to share their love through looks and things they do for each other around the home.

When letters start arriving showing how Micah blessed others by saving lives as a medic in the Army, Naomi is sure the Bishop and Minister will change their mind and release Micah from the bann.

Through a shocking experience, the Minister comes to find out himself how Micah's calling as a medic helps.  Through lots of prayer, comes an amazing end to the story. You never know what might happen  when we let God work through us.

This was a great book. It is well written, and has a great storyline. It keeps moving, making it hard to put the book down:) I recommend this book especially for anyone who loves family, and making them important. I don't always agree with some of the behavior and actions in the Amish community, but the book is clearly staying in line with true beliefs. It makes for a great true to life situation.

Once Upon a Pencil By Ayelet Nathaniel

      I was honored to be chosen to review yet another of Ayelet "Ally" Nathaniel's books. In this one, we follow a young girl named Sarah on an adventure. Sarah is out admiring the sky and watching to see what  the clouds remind her of. She sees many different objects along the way and helps get her imagination going. 
      When she finds a pencil she notices it is growing in the ground. She is curious, so she picks up the pencil out of the ground. Sarah's imagination is strong, and since she is without paper, she begins to draw on her jeans. What she draws suddenly becomes real. She draws things she would love to see and have. She draws a few things, and then starts to wish things for her friends. She notices that when she is  thinking of other people, that the number of pencils available grows also.  She discovers that it's so much more fun to draw things that others would like instead of just for herself.

I think there are some great lessons to be learned from this book. It is a great reminder that giving is better than receiving. She is a thoughtful child and is blessed by helping others. When she receives more due to her thoughtfulness, she doesn't do for herself, but continues to give to her friends.

This is a cute book. It's short, but packs in a good story! I have been impressed with all of her books. I recommend checking them out! You can check out 3 other reviews by Ayelet Nathaniel on my blog.

Reconnected by Bethany Daniel


      Liam and Katy are high school sweethearts. They have grown up together and have finally fallen in love and gotten married. When Liam gets discovered by Hollywood, they realize their lives are changing. From the girls giggling and following him, to the parties and drinking, Katy realized she can not be apart of this life. During a huge party one night Katy takes off. What she doesn't do is divorce Liam.

      Fast forward 4 years and we find Katy (now Kate) enjoying the life she has created. When Hollywood brings a crew to film a movie in her town, she learns that Liam is the star of the movie. She is determined to stay away and not see him. When they meet by chance, she is reluctant to give him time. When she learns he is still in love with her, she wonders if they can actually start fresh while dealing with the complications of the past and the current. Including relationships with other people.

      As Katy and Liam grow close again, Katy's roommate Krista and Liam's co-star Scott find their own love.  When a crazed actress begins to cause trouble, they all find themselves in the middle of a dangerous situation. What happens when tragedy threatens their newly rekindled love?  Will they stand by each other, or will the world they've created fall apart?  

      Overall this is a great book. This is a first for author Bethany Daniel, and I feel it is a great start. The characters are personable and relatable, although I would have liked a little more detail about the characters.  I feel the story could have used more depth also. It seemed to move a little quickly, and I would have liked to know more about their lives. This is actually also a compliment because I feel the characters were good. I enjoyed what I read, just needed more.  

      This is a pretty quick read, and fun for a relaxing time. I look forward to reading more of her books and I recommend everyone checking this out. I think the more she writes it will only get better! You can find the book here at
