The True Account of Adam and Eve

written by Ken Ham

Ken Ham, author and founder of Answers in Genesis . has written another great book dealing with the true account of Adam and Eve. 

In it you will explore questions of Adam and Eve as real people in the Garden of Eden.

This book is  easy to read and understand. 

Your child will understand where mankind's history began, how it has impacted our world, and how it will end.

I like the fact that Ken Ham has written this book in an  easy to understand manner.  If you are like me, I have told the story about Adam and Eve to my girls for years and years... its one of the first I told them growing up... but with this book, you will get a clearer and thought provoking study about the first man and woman.  I also love that He ties in the salvation message and explains why we must carry this message to the world around us.

Inside the pages of The True account of Adam and Eve, you will find many color filled  illustrations. 

Here are a few examples of pages inside:

See full page illustrations!
YOU can find The True account of Adam and Eve at any book store.  This is one that you will want for an additional read for history.

If you are using Mystery of History or Diana Warings History Revealed, this book would make a great supplement reader.

The True Account of Adam and Eve is published by Master Books, a division of New Leaf Publishing Group.

A Love Surrendered.. review

Orphaned in Iowa, Annie Kennedy moves to Boston to stay with her spinster aunt. She longs for romance to fill the void left by her parents' death. But when she falls hard for Steven O'Connor, the man who broke an engagement to her sister, Annie is worried. Will he break her heart too when he discovers who she really is?

With heart-pounding romance, intense family drama, and emotional twists and turns, A Love Surrendered is everything Julie Lessman's many fans have been waiting for.

Annie is a sweet gentle girl who is hungry for friends. Steven O'Connor  tries to keep her from getting in with the wrong crowd, but is having a hard time not falling for her. Annie is already head over heels for him.

This is a really fun book. It takes place during the prohibition era.  So you will see some things that pertain to the era while reading.
Steven has trouble knowing when to stop being to "friendly" with girls in the past so he tries to keep his distance with Annie.

Annie and her younger sister are living with their Aunt, who seems to not like both girls.

While I found the book fun to read, I did not care for some of the more personal conversations the characters had with each other.

They tended to deal to much with "relations with the opposite sex" more than I would have liked.

A Cookbook for the frugal minded mom

A few weeks ago, I received a cookbook to review by 
Revell  publishers.

It is called 
A farmer's Daughter: Recipes from a Mennonite Kitchen.

I love new recipes! But what I love even better is 
recipes that are frugal!

These are!

All these recipes provide you with a wholesome meal that cost you little  to make. 

You will find over 200 mouthwatering recipes
all made from fresh ingredients.

The last chapter is a gold mine for the frugal minded mom.
In it you will find recipes to "simply do it yourself".
Here are a few of the recipe titles in this chapter:

Cooked vanilla pudding mix

Laundry soap 

window cleaner

Taco seasoning mix

and my favorite:  Homemade Chocolate Syrup!

If your children are like mine, they love chocolate milk.. and go through the store bought stuff really fast... 
now you can make your own syrup for a fraction of the cost...
and best of all... it tastes great!

I have a few I am still dying to try like the:

Spinach, Meatball, and Tortellini Soup
The Fresh corn and Chicken Chowder

I can't wait... 

When the Heart Stops, book review

I must tell you, my readers, sorry.
I have been neglecting my blog lately... not that I don't have a list of topics and things to write about...
Things have just been a little busy around here lately.

I have finished another action packed book.
When the Heart Stops
by Lynette Eason

This is the second book in the Deadly Reunions series.

A killer's deadly game needs new players . . . but someone's about to change the rules

As a medical examiner, Serena Hopkins is used to dealing with death. But that doesn't make it any easier when she's called to the eerie scene of a murder--especially when Serena realizes that she knows the victim. Nearly as unnerving is the presence of FBI agent Dominic Allen, her childhood crush.
As evidence mounts and points to a serial killer with disturbingly familiar methods, Serena and Dominic must work to find a pattern and stop the killings before the murderer strikes again. And when Serena's own life seems at stake, she must decide if the secret she has been keeping has put her next on the killer's hit list. Can she trust Dominic with the truth before it's too late?

Lynette has written another great book! Its packed with suspense  lots to twists and turns.. that leaves you on the edge of sit.

The third book will be out soon.. and I can't wait!

Brand new Amish novel for Little Girls

The Adventures of Lily Lapp

Life with Lily

book one

Life with Lily is a brand new chapter novel for kids  ages 8-12, written by 
Mary Ann Kinsinger and Suzanne Woods Fisher.

This novel is great for little girls or as a family time novel.
I began reading it with my youngest.  We are really enjoying it.
I have to say that we have not finished it "together", but 
Mom has!
Its An adorable story about the life of a child growing up Amish.
There are a few pictures spread throughout the book 
that is nice for the pre teens.

This first book leaves the reader wondering what adventure will 
Lily encounter next... ( I don't want to give it away... so 
you will have to read the book)

For a child, every day is a thing of wonder. And for six-year-old Lily Lapp, every day is a new opportunity for blessings, laughter, family, and a touch of mischief. As she explores her world, goes to school, spends time with her family, and gets into a bit of trouble with her friends, Lily learns what it means to be Amish and what it means to grow up. From getting a new teacher to welcoming a new sibling, Lily's life is always full of adventure.

A great book, and I am almost positive that my youngest will be begging me for the next one!

LIfe of Lily can be found in your local Christian bookstore.
