It’s the only nonfiction book I’ve read in a REALLY long time and it was excellent. I was actually a bit obsessive about reading it. I finished the 500 page book in a day.
And that, friends, is why I rarely read nonfiction books.
Get all the details at the end of the post and find out who won last week’s prize.
Don’t Read My Blog This Week
Well, at least until you read these two blogs:
This week my friend Amanda is taking a trip with World Vision to see their programs that benefit the people of the Dominican Republic. Amanda is a fellow inspired mom just like you. I love this awesome post she wrote about discovering the joy of a morning routine.
Please read her personal blog this week. I’ve followed many bloggers who have gone on similar trips and it’s always deeply moving. Jimmy and I sponsor children through Compassion International and it’s been a wonderful way to help our family have a broader world view.
I’ll also be guest posting at Amanda’s wonderful blog – Impress Your Kids. Her blog is all about creative ways to impress God’s Word on our children’s hearts. I think my post goes up on Wednesday, so hop on over and check it out. Her blog is packed with really fun things to do with our children, which fits in nicely with the theme for this week: Summer Fun.
If you have time, after reading about Amanda’s trip to the DR, I’d love it if you’d join us this week as we discuss all the creative and fun things we can do with our families this summer.
We’ll talk about everything from “How to Make Big Memories on a Small Budget” to “Surviving Summer Road Trips.”
See you tomorrow!
