The Shack, Merry And A Cat Named Cha-moan

Terri Marie

This was a book geared towards the younger reader, however, I found it to be delightful. A frolic through normal life as kids, “The Gang” soon discovers the magical and mysterious shack, which is their “meeting place”. This book, although corny at times, teaches the young reader to do the right thing and always hold onto their “treasures”.

T Scoggins

They believed that The Shack was abandoned, but it wasn’t. They were told to never go inside of it, but they did. They believed they could run really fast, but they had no idea…
Narrated by a thirteen year old boy, find out what happens to a group of best friends, on a magical adventure and the race of their lives. They must save their friends, their town, and all that they believe in, before everything…is gone.

Not Your Mother's Make-Ahead and Freeze Cookbook (NYM Series)

Not Your Mother’s Make-Ahead and Freeze Cookbook (NYM Series)

Jessica Fisher

This is so much more than just a cookbook (there’s so much fabulous information, the recipes don’t even start until page 65). The only downside is now I have no excuse NOT to start freezer cooking!

Joy M

Our mothers—and grandmothers—put up food in the freezer to economize on time and money. In a recessionary environment and in a world of dual-job families, there’s even more reason to do so today. But we don’t have the same tastes as our moms. We eat a wider range of foods, drawing on a variety of ethnic and global cuisines, we include more produce and grains in our diets, and we use fewer processed and fatty foods. Jessica Fisher’s Not Your Mother’s Make-Ahead and Freeze Cookbook is the perfect guide for economical home cooks with any or all of these new tastes in foods that take well to freezing.

Competing books on freezing sell strongly and steadily. Typically, they are based on a very specific plan—cooking for a family of four for a month ahead in an afternoon of work in the kitchen, for example. They offer orderly plans with decent, if largely unimaginative, food. Not Your Mother’s Make-Ahead and Freeze Cookbook offers two advantages over these books. First, Fisher lays out lots of easy-to-follow guidelines for diverse families with varying needs and desires, taking into account how long you want to spend in the kitchen—there are 2-hour, 4-hour, and daylong plans—as well as how far out ahead you want to cook for, the size of your household, the size of your freezer, your budget, and even your taste for one-dish meals versus multi-course meals. The emphasis is on facilitating flexibility without sacrificing clarity and ease-of-use.

Second, Fisher’s 200 recipes deliver flavorful and healthy food in abundance. She takes readers beyond mom’s beef-pork-chicken triumvirate, with lots of ideas for lamb, fish, shellfish, and vegetarian main courses. There are homey and family-friendly dishes, like Cheddar Cheese Soup with Zucchini, Broccoli, and Carrots, or Crumb-Topped Cod Fillets, fancy dishes for company, like Seasoned Steak with Gorgonzola Herb Butter, and lots of globally inspired creations like Salsa Verde Beef, Red Lentil Dahl, and Hoisin-Glazed Salmon. While the emphasis is on dinner, there are breakfast and brunch recipes, too, and plenty of ideas for breads, quick breads, and desserts that freeze well. Ample sidebars address such matters as finding good freezer bags and containers, labeling frozen food, whether to invest in a new freezer, and how to thaw safely.

The author’s story—cooking for a family of eight, including six home-schooled children under ten, and serving as the creator and writer of the popular blogs Life as Mom and Good Cheap Eats—fits the topic and the book perfectly. Fisher is a woman who knows all about budgeting time and money efficiently, at the same time serving up delicious food with warmth, love, and an appreciation for the pleasures of the table.

Looking Up When Life Gets You Down

Looking Up When Life Gets You Down

Warren W. Wiersbe

Most encouraging when life has you in a tail spin to realize that God has plans for you. Highly recommend for a quick shot for the soul and heart.

Lloyd Jones

When life falls apart, where is God? Does he care? Can he fix things? Does he really love us? In an uncertain world, people need to know that God is still in control, that he still cares for us and even suffers with us, and that he has a plan that cannot be defeated.

In his compassionate and caring style, Warren W. Wiersbe offers beaten-down readers a positive treatment of suffering that reveals the Bible’s authoritative and comforting answers to their big questions. His faith-bolstering insight will show readers that, with God as their source of comfort, strength, and hope, they can weather the storms of life–and come out on top.

Little Billy

Little Billy

John Anderson

he adventures of the boys are charming and to my mind are reminiscent of Tom Sawyer and Huckleberry Finn. It is nostalgic of an age of innocence and playfulness as well as dealing with the harsh realities of life .

NG

Follow adventuresome Little Billy, on his homemade raft, as he explores a slough, snares gophers, charges his buddies to view an old hermit at his friend’s funeral home, and see first hand if he really had a wooden leg, and what lurks behind his black eye patch. A great read for all ages.

John Macleod, from Scotland, did this review after reading Little Billy (Kindle Edition)
This is a delightful story related in a particularly vivid manner. The narrative comes to life as one can picture the scenes while reading. This would make an enchanting film. The adventures of the boys are charming and to my mind are reminiscent of Tom Sawyer and Huckleberry Finn. It is nostalgic of an age of innocence and playfulness as well as dealing with the harsh realities of life. Writing from Scotland and as a Macleod myself with connections to the Isle of Lewis, I particularly relished the Roddy character in his full highland regalia and the sweet letter from Roddy’s sister. All and all,an evocative and touching story. I can’t wait to read the next one.

None So Blind (Sight Unseen)

None So Blind (Sight Unseen)

Chautona Havig

I enjoyed the depth of the characters (move over Mr. Darcy, David Weeks is pretty amazing!), getting to better know & spend time with ‘friends’ from Ms. Havigs’ other Rockland/Fairbury/etc. books, and of course, the story itself. I have yet to read a book by Chautona Havig that hasn’t uplifted & encouraged me personally & spiritually.

Sarah Sarber

Dani and Ella Weeks–two women who share one thing in common–the same life, the same family, and the same body.

When Dani wakes with no knowledge of who or where she is–no memories of her life at all–David and Dani Weeks discover that “til death do us part” takes on an entirely unexpected meaning. Practically speaking, Dani died. But she didn’t.

In a desperate attempt to separate the old life from the new, Dani insists on a new name–Ella.

Ella’s doctors can’t explain what happened. Her children can’t understand why she doesn’t know them, and her husband finds himself torn between admiration for the “new” version of his wife and missing the woman he’s known for over fifteen years.

Will Ella ever regain her memory? Why does their pastor suspect it’s one great hoax?

Childless: A Novel (Fatherless)

Childless: A Novel (Fatherless)

James Dobson, Kurt Bruner

Great read! The authors have made the story and characters in such a way that your mind automatically applies to ongoing events on its own.

Jack Delk

The second installment in the riveting new trilogy from Dr. James Dobson and Kurt Bruner transports readers to a not-too-distant future when the young and healthy strain under the burden of a rapidly aging population.

Everyone is nervous about how Judge Victor Santiago will rule. The case involved the tragic demise of a loving mother and her disabled son. A common medical procedure has somehow created havoc across the legal and economic landscape. The president’s popular Youth Initiative is losing momentum. Political and economic fortunes are at stake. That’s why someone, somewhere, would rather put the judge in his grave than risk a wrong decision.

Tyler Cain, a once respected police detective turned sleazy private investigator, has been pulled into the middle of events way above his pay grade. He hopes the case will restore some measure of dignity. But does he have what it takes to find the potential assassin before time runs out?

He seeks help from Julia Davidson, a newly married journalist, who finds herself torn between the influence she craves and the husband she loves. She wants significance. But he wants a child. In Fatherless, Dr. James Dobson and Kurt Bruner depicted a time in which present-day trends come to sinister fruition. This eagerly awaited follow-up vividly imagines what happens when the abiding joys of parenthood are exchanged for the gradual deterioration of a CHILDLESS world.
