Speak Love


I just finished this book this morning.  It was gifted to me this Christmas from my Amazon wishlist.  It was a super awesome book.  The book is intended for pre-teen and teenage girls, but I found most of it to be relevant to me as well.  Certainly I could remember some of the topics discussed from my times as a teenager, and I'm surprised to say how much relates to my current life too.  The first part of the book was especially moving for me. 

The book caused me to reflect, think and change the way I use my words.  It had me thinking about myself, my kids and my husband and everyone else I interact with.  It got me into my Bible reading and writing in my makeshift journal through each chapter of the book.  I even made a few posts to my Facebook, which I rarely do, because I saw how it could be valuable to share. 

Another thing I started doing because of this book was writing out Bible verses on index cards and posting them in various places in my house.  I have a few sitting on my kitchen windowsill, one on my bedroom mirror, etc. 

Next up I'm going to dig into Annie Downs' other book, Let's All Be Brave.

You Are More Than You Know

I just finished this book. It was a good read, and I think for the right person incredibly helpful and insightful.I personally don't feel like I live my life in fear or controlled by fear too often, occasionally yes, but not regularly.  (Maybe I'm in denial?!)  This books focused on overcoming fear with faith, which is an excellent message."At this juncture of my life I'm not convinced normal is an obtainable or even desirable goal, but embracing our God-given uniqueness is. In fact, it's an adventure that leads us to embracing that we are more than we know because the Lord is greater - far greater - than we can ever imagine." -Patsy Clairmont

Uh oh!

Ruth has started saying Uh Oh now!  She started it at the sitter's yesterday and continued through the evening!  I'm hoping it's the gateway to more words for her!  Currently her vocabulary is lots of sounds, mom and uh oh.

Do you have allergies?

Every time someone has sneezed over the weekend, Elinore asks "do you have allergies?"

Clearly she's learned about allergy season somewhere and is concerned about others and their allergies now.

It's cute.
