Book of the Week: The Shape of Water

Always read the book first.  Yes, that’s one of my mottoes.  Strangely enough, Oscar’s Best Movie of 2017 was a MOVIE and then a BOOK.  What is up with that?   I dug a little and found out why.  Read the explanation here.   I’ve had the book on pre-order for a while and it […]

Book of the Week: A Wrinkle in Time

One of my mottos is:  “Always read the book first.”   I recently read  A Wrinkle in Time in order to prepare for upcoming Disney movie.  The book was first published in 1962…before I was born.    The upcoming Disney movie starring Oprah and Reese looks AMAZING and comes out on 3/9.  I can’t believe I’ve never […]

Books of the Week: Billy Graham’s Best Sellers

Book of the Week: The Magnolia Story

  I’m not one of those people who is addicted to HGTV.  Really, I’m not.  I’ve seen a handful of Fixer Upper episodes and I’m kinda fascinated by Tiny Houses after binge watching a few episodes with my Mom and my Aunt one day.   However, my Mom on the other hand, is ADDICTED to HGTV.   […]

Book of the Week: Jesus Calling by Sarah Young

Well, it’s the App of the Day so I decided to make it the book of the week too! After many years of writing in her prayer journal, missionary Sarah Young decided to listen to God with pen in hand, writing down whatever she believed He was saying to her. It was awkward at first, […]
