In June I posted a review of Tim Challies’ book, Do More Better, where he recommends three apps to use to organize your life. Well, here’s an update on how this analog girl is making the switch to digital list-making. Thanks for watching!
Bonjour! My son just completed French 1 through Bob Jones Academy’s Distance Learning Online program and I can’t wait to tell you about it! Merci beaucoup! Thank you for watching!
I tried to keep this video brief, but as usual, I talk too much! *cringe* Anyway, I hope this will give you an idea of the helpful information in Do More Better: A Practical Guide to Productivity, by Christian blogger and author, Tim Challies. Here are my thoughts as a wife and mom: Thank… Continue reading New Video: Do More Better Book Review
The Element: How Finding Your Passion Changes Everything by Ken Robinson first found its way in my life via a TED talk which I shared earlier this year. Have you, like I have done, assumed that artistic and creative people grow up surrounded by the art or music they love, thereby naturally developing their rare… Continue reading My Book Bag: The Element
This week’s book review is actually a books review – plural. I would like to tell you about The Building on the Rock Series of devotionals by Joel Beeke and Diana Kleyn. They are, in order: How God Used a Thunderstorm How God Stopped the Pirates How God Used a Snowdrift How God Used a Drought and… Continue reading My Book Bag: The Building on the Rock Series

It has several things going for it which make it a good choice to read aloud, or for children to read themselves. It is a Newbury Medal winner. This… Continue reading My Book Bag: Call It Courage

In this case, The Residence quoted a book called Upstairs… Continue reading My Book Bag: Upstairs at the White House

I looked it up on our library’s website, and behold! They had a copy! The Residence is a behind-the-scenes look… Continue reading My Book Bag: The Residence

That’s why I owned Killing the Rising Sun by Bill O’Reilly and Martin Dugard for several months before I read it. And that’s why I’m just now writing about it… Continue reading My Book Bag: Killing the Rising Sun
The Wolves of Willoughby Chase by Joan Aiken has been my favorite novel of the year (so far). I was able to borrow the audio version through my library and stream it through our van’s Bluetooth feature on our vacation several weeks ago. The book is read by Lizza Aiken, Joan Aiken’s daughter. In the… Continue reading My Book Bag: The Wolves of Willoughby Chase
