I know, I know, my last update was December 27, and I’m sorry.  We had a week of family in town that was slam-packed with shopping and eating and hanging out.  I had a week getting back into the work (and homework for my eight year old) routine.  Then we had a week of snow!

I have read two books in the past three weeks, though, so watch out – this weekend you will get two book reviews!  Happy Reading, everyone!


Merry Christmas to all!  I am pumped at beginning to review books again!  I just wanted to let you know what I have on the docket for the coming week:

I am having dinner at my Grandmama’s house tomorrow night with my Grandmama, husband, mother, father, recently-returned-from-three-months-in-Spain sister, and her fiancee.  Lots of veggies and meats are on the menu, and as I am an advocate for healthy living and healthy eating, my plate will be filled with 3/4 vegetables and 1/4 meat with no gravy.  I am so excited to see everyone!

Until then, I am going to finish reading a wonderful novel written by Kathi Macias entitled No Greater Love.  This is the first installment in her Extreme Devotion series, and it is an awesome book.  Look for a review before the end of the Christmas weekend.  Kathi was kind enough to send me the first three books in this series, and I am looking forward to reviewing them for you.

Saturday, CHRISTMAS DAY!  I will be having breakfast with my husband’s family, and then going to see Voyage of the Dawn Treader with my family, and dinner afterward.  Since Dawn Treader is an installment in C.S. Lewis’ Chronicles of Narnia, I will be featuring a review of the film, and how it compares to the book.  Look for this review during the first of the week.

I wish all of you a very Merry Christmas!  Enjoy your families this Holiday, and remember that because Jesus Christ was born, we are able to celebrate giving of ourselves to our friends and loved ones.

Hello, dear readers!

As I sit on my bed on this rainy Sunday, I begin my journey completely into the wonderful world of blogging!  I have freelance blogged in the past, and as I planned my wedding I maintained a website for our wedding.  I have never had my own personal blog until now, however.

A good friend at my church has recently introduced me to the world of book blogging, and I am thoroughly excited about the prospect of sharing my love of reading with others.  In this blog I will post reviews for the books I read in hopes that you, too, will choose to pick up a book and enjoy the powerful gift that is the written word.  I have also chosen to take this blog a step further in the ways I have outlined below.

You see, I am newly married and newly away from home.  I do not see my family as much as I used to, and I think this will be an incredible tool to keep even more than just my family updated on what goes on with myself, my husband, and his son (my seven-year-old stepson).  So, to all my family and friends, a big hello from the three of us!

I am also eager to share the things that God reveals to me, and how God uses me.  I believe a Christian’s existence is not meant to be private, but public.  I hope that some of the words I share will help to encourage others, or, more hopefully, be used to reach others with the Gospel of Jesus Christ.  He alone is worthy of ALL praise, and is the God of my life and of my home.  I think a blog is a useful tool to share God’s love, and that is another goal I have for my own blog.

Thank you for stepping into my corner of WebSpace, and I hope you enjoy the posts to come!

The books on this blog have been sent to me directly by either the publisher or the author. I paid nothing for these books. I received them free of charge in exchange for my honest review. I received the books only - no monetary compensation was given or received by either me nor the author or publisher. The copies I review are considered review copies or Advance Reader Copies. I will note in each post if I received a copy of the book for free from either the publisher or the author. If no such notation is made, then I purchased the book myself, was given a copy of the book by someone I know, or I checked out a copy from my local library.
