1/2 c butter
4 eggs

Praying Through Your Child’s Early Years: An Inspirational Year-by-Year Guide for Raising a Spiritually Healthy Child

Jennifer Polimino (Author), Carolyn Warren (Author)

I loved their first book “Praying Through Your Pregnancy” and this is an excellent follow up. I love how she guides us through each stage and brings up things I might not normally think of praying for. My husband and I have been blessed immensely by these books! Buy it as a shower gift or to welcome a new blessing!

Dana

When Jennifer Polimino’s son was born with severe breathing problems, the medical staff whisked him out of the delivery room to the Neonatal Intensive Care Unit. She called after her husband, “Don’t let him out of your sight!” and then was left behind. All she could do was cry out to God, a situation that set her on a path of prayer, committed to take her precious son before God’s throne in every circumstance. Each year, as her son grows older, she has found new opportunities to pray for him and herself. In Praying Through Your Child’s Early Years, Jennifer and her coauthor, Carolyn, share with moms how to meet the challenges and joys of motherhood by turning to God in all things.

When I first heard about this series of novellas a couple of months ago, I was so excited! Not only would I get a new story every month for a year, but some of my favorite authors would be writing them! Win, win!

i blog 4 books

A year’s worth of novellas from twelve inspirational romance authors. Happily ever after guaranteed.

What started as a whim turned into an accidental—and very public—engagement. Can Layla and Seth keep up the façade in Chapel Springs this holiday season—for the sake of her career . . . and his heart?

Under normal circumstances, Seth Murphy—the best friend of Layla O’Reilly’s ex-fiancé—would be the last person she’d marry. But the news of their upcoming (and phony) nuptials convinces a big client that Layla may be high-society enough to work for his agency—a coup that would put her fledgling home-staging business on the map.

Seth has secretly loved Layla for years, even when she was dating his best friend. Maybe she’ll never forgive him for the way he hurt her back then, but he has to try. And Layla is willing to keep up their engagement farce until she’s landed her client.

For Layla, it’s the chance to save her career. But for Seth, it’s his last chance to win her heart.

“Denise Hunter knows how to warm up an inspirational romance with sizzling chemistry. You’ll fall in love with this December wedding story!” —Kristin Billerbeck, bestselling author of What a Girl Wants

.I am very happy I read the book and I think anyone who likes Amish fiction and Beverly Lewis’ other books will very much enjoy it also. I did give it 5 stars as it was a book I didn’t want to see end…and that, to me, means it was a very satisfying read!

Paper Angels: A Novel

Jimmy Wayne

As a fan of both authors of this book, I had looked forward to reading PAPER ANGELS for well over a year before it was released, AND I had very high expectations. I can honestly say my expectations were met and exceeded!

julieNwyoming

From Billboard Top Ten charted country music artist Jimmy Wayne comes an inspirational holiday story about a child in the Salvation Army’s Angel Tree program who encounters the disillusioned businessman who picked his name—soon to be a made-for-TV movie starring Josie Bissett!

Kevin Morrell is a forty-three-year-old husband and father who runs a successful design and marketing firm now suffering in the current economy. Attempting to navigate the hectic Christmas mall traffic, Kevin stumbles across the Salvation Army’s Angel Tree Project. His wife insists that he take a paper ornament.

The name on the ornament is Thomas Brandt, a fifteen-year-old still reeling from the implosion of his family—from years of verbal abuse from an alcoholic father to a struggling single mother who now finds herself and her children penniless. The only thing that has allowed Lynn to survive is her faith. Thomas shares that faith, but he also wonders why God has seemingly abandoned them.

Destined to become a holiday classic, Paper Angels shares “two intertwined stories about family life and hard times…the hope of the Christmas holiday and…the goodness and compassion of loving hearts” (RT Book Reviews).

Happy Wives Club: One Woman's Worldwide Search for the Secrets of a Great Marriage

Happy Wives Club: One Woman’s Worldwide Search for the Secrets of a Great Marriage

Fawn Weaver

I think this book is great for newlyweds and couples who are overall happy in their marriage. However, I think it might not be the best book for women to read who are struggling in their marriage. This is only because it is not always helpful to read about how great marriage is when your marriage is less than happy. Furthermore, there are some biblical reasons that support divorce under certain circumstances. Aside from those couple negatives, I think this is a great book that is a wonderful resource for couples.

I think this is an overall nice addition to your weeknight cooking shelf. As always, I am touched by Jordan’s commitment to families.

This book will make a nice gift for newlyweds, new cooks, and Southern plate fans with its mix of easily prepared recipes.

Believe In Me: A London Christmas, sweet Christian romance (Love In Store Book 2)

Autumn Macarthur

A wonderful lighthearted Christian romance. The cast of characters are fantastic. I loved the London setting. If you enjoy a good clean Chritian romance and love escaping to faraway places, I would recommend this book. I read the prequel, The Wedding List which is a good read also. It is not necessary to read that first. I received a copy of this book for my honest review. Many thanks to the author.

But if accepting Nick’s dare – dates showing her the magic of a London Christmas – can raise enough publicity to keep the store open, she’ll do it. Even if she risks falling in love with him in the process.

Can this surprising Santa allow love to deepen his untested faith and learn to commit, while helping Ms Scrooge believe in Christmas, and in God, once more?
