Nourished: A Search for Health, Happiness and a Full Night’s Sleep is a must-read self-help book from mother and daughter team Becky Johnson and Rachel Randolph. They address the top ten stressors of women and offer sound practical advice in how to makes changes in these areas. Through their heart felt stories and experiences both good and bad, this team treats readers like some of their closest friends. The ultimate aim is to help us become and see who God created us to be which most certainly is not a defeated, worn thin, and constantly overwhelmed woman.
Team Us: Marriage Together is a book full of practical insights from a down to earth Christ-centered couple. There are so many books like this one out there but I feel that this couple deliverers truths and practical advice in an easy to understand yet challenging way. This book does not leave one exhausted or overwhelmed with an information overload. Couples will be encouraged, convicted, and loved while reading through as if hearing from a close friend.
The Berenstain Bears God Made You Special is a book that addresses differences in others. These differences in others covered could be those that are mental or physical. Children will learn that God makes us all different in a number of ways and they shouldn’t be scared or confused about it and that it’s never a problem to ask questions pertaining to it.
The Bible verse the book begins with is Matthew 19:14 “Jesus said, “Let the little children come to me, and do not hinder them, for the kingdom of heaven belongs to such as these”. The cubs meet a new friend named Tommy. He is different than them and they were told he was developmentally delayed. They never say in what way. But I feel that was a good choice as it covers and endless spectrum of differences whether it be a child with autism, growth delay, down-syndrome, etc.
The Portlandia Cookbook is a must have for any fan of the popular hit TV show. It’s a wonderful array of everything most celebrated about the city of Portland with amusing twists and humorous turns throughout. I feel that this book truly captures the saying most native Oregonians know about keeping Portland weird. It’s clearly not to be taken seriously so if that’s what one is expecting from this work, they’ll be quite disheartened. It brings the very best of the show from the characters to the unique locations together to deliver some pretty amazing recipes that any skilled level cook can pull off!
The Berenstain Bears And The Biggest Brag is great book written to teach kids the importance of not gloating and being boastful! It’s an excellent choice book for life lessons and personal character study. It gives children the opportunity to look to the Word of God for answers and instruction.
I so very much want my kids to learn not to be a poor sport in interacting with those around them. No one likes someone that floating their own boats. I really want them to take into the consideration of others and what they may feeling. Traits such as this don’t come naturally so I’m glad the Berenstain Bears offers a book on the subject.
