Fun Study and Easy to Apply Having a Martha Home the Mary Way 31 Days To A Clean House and a Satisfied Soul by Sarah Mae

Fun Study and Easy to apply Having a Martha Home the Mary Way 31 Days To A Clean House and a Satisfied Soul by Sarah Mae

What a fun and easy to follow study for anyone whether you struggle with cleaning or not. I didn't know what to expect when I first got this book I was worried it would make me feel incompetent and guilty for not having a perfect house, this is not the case though. This is a way as the author says
 " Each day there is a reading designed to encourage you, inspire you, get you thinking and get you energized. There is no judgment; this isn't boot camp."pg 11 Sarah Mae uses Martha the older sister who takes care of the home, and family no nonsense sister and Mary the younger emotional one who has a heart of faith and is wise in her own way. Each day the author gives us a Martha Challenge and a Mary Challenge to complete and each day. There are scriptures to read and things to get you close to Christ so preparing your heart, which is the Mary Challenge and then there is the Martha Challenge which breaks down the cleaning tasks into things for each day to help get your house in order. This is a fun wonderful book that helps to plan out your day and take time to spend time with the Lord.

I enjoyed going through this book and found it to be useful. I think even someone who thinks they don't need the help in planing an d cleaning will find this book useful just for the Bible time. I really think this is a good book to study and would be great for a small group setting. I would recommend this to all.

I think this would be a wonderful gift for a college student to a newly wed. I think even someone like me who has grown children and been married for over 40 years can get something helpful out of this book. I hope you will give it a try.

A Good Study on Finding Rest in The Gift of Rest by Crickett Keeth

The Gift Of Rest by Crickett Keeth is a wonderful study into rest and finding that we all need rest. Even God rested on the seventh day of creation. This book is an eight week study into Biblical principals of rest and importance of rest. I leads you day by day through scripture and helps you to understand that rest is important and we need to make sure we take time to rest in re-energize. I know we all have the go go go attitude and it seems we never have enough time. We get run down physically and spiritually so it is important to rest physically and to rest and take time with God so that we can have the strength needed for each day physically and spiritually. This is a wonderful study on how God stresses they importance of rest and each day gives you scripture and questions to help you apply the study to your life. It would be an excellent small group study. The author has a very easy to follow and understand way of presenting the information. I think this is one that will be very helpful to all because we all forget sometimes to slow down and rest. I really enjoyed going through this study it will be one I will go back to often. I would recommend it. It is a very useful, insightful, and easy study to follow. It is an important study to apply to our lives.

Edge of your seat suspense in Girl On The Run by Daryl Wood Gerber

Edge of your seat suspense in Girl On The Run by Daryl Wood Gerber

Chessa has everything a job she loves, a loving husband a dream home or so she thinks. Her world turns upside down when she comes to and finds her husband dead by her and no memory of what has happened. Things go from bad to worse when party goers from the Fairytale Ball she planned are found in a meadow massacred. Chessa finds herself the #1 suspect  in the murders and all she can think to do is run. She escapes and goes on the run because she has to try and remember and figure out what has happened and to prove she is innocent? Can Chessa remember what really happened before she becomes another victim? Can she find the truth all the while trying to avoid being captured by the police until she figures this all out and oh by the way is anybody or is anything she thought she knew just all been lies?

All I can say is WOW. This is an action packed riveting thriller. It keeps you guessing right along with Chessa and the police. I like that it is a fast moving plot but one that is not hard to keep pace with. It is an edge of your seat page turner that draws you in and one that you won't want to put down. It has an unique spin on the murders one that has many possibilities for who done it which makes for a good read. Daryl Wood Gerber has a hit with her first suspense,  one you will want to make sure you buy.

Fun, Magic, Just A Good Cozy Mystery

Crime and Poetry a Magical Bookshop Mystery by Amanda Flower is a great new series. I just loved the book and would love to  sit in the Charming Bookshop and enjoy the atmosphere while reading.

Violet hurries back to Cascade Springs, her hometown she swore she would never return to, thinking her Grandma Daisy is ill. When she arrives though she finds Grandma is not sick at all but just wanted Violet to come home and stay to take over the bookshop as its caretaker.Violet is shocked when her Grandma explains about the mystical shop, the tree, and how the books gives the caretaker messages and now Violet is suppose to be the new caretaker and the books will talk to her. Wow she has trouble wrapping her head around all that Grandma tells her. Not just that but she is surprised to  find how devious her Grandmother had been to get her to come back. She vows not to stay but that changes when Grandma Daisy's friend Benedict is found dead by Violet in his carriage in Grandma's driveway the next morning and Grandma seems to be the number 1 suspect. Violet has to overlook her past in Cascade Springs, the past that made her swear never to come back and   help find who really killed Benedict and prove her Grandma innocent before she leaves. What is Violet to think and how can she prove Grandma is innocent before something happens to her or Grandma and soon so she can get back to her life in Chicago?

This is an excellent surprising mystery with strong characters and plot. Violet is a smart, strong willed and independent woman which is always a plus in a mystery,  Grandma Daisy is cunning, smart, loving and someone everyone loves. These are two women you would want to be friends with. I like that the Mystical bookshop is an important part to the plot. I could just curl up in a corner of that shop and live there. Who wouldn't want to have a shop that is mystical and the books give you messages what could be greater than that? You also have the good looking intelligent yet kind police chief, Chief Rainwater as well as many suspects.

I can not say it enough I loved this book.  One of my favorite lines is when Grandma is explaining to Violet about the history and mystery of the bookshop and that she now is its caretaker,
"You are the Caretaker. You are to care for the tree and shop now. The books will speak to you now." pg 64 also "Not everything in this world makes sense, you only need to believe it. You are the next Caretaker." pg 64
If you enjoy a good mystery that keeps you guessing with a surprise or two, strong characters, add in a mystical bookshop then don't miss this one. Amanda Flower has another hit with this one.
