They Call Me Mom: 52 Encouraging Devotions for Every Moment

by 
When women take on the role of mom, they take on a hundred other titles as well: healer, comforter, chef, teacher, cheerleader--and less flattering jobs such as disciplinarian, ruiner of fun times, and chief worrier. In the middle of juggling all those roles, finding room to spend time alone seeking God can seem insurmountable.

Michelle Medlock Adams is an award-winning journalist and best-selling author, with close to 4 million books sold. Since graduating with a journalism degree from Indiana University, Michelle has written more than 1,500 articles for newspapers, magazines, and websites; helped pen a New York Times Bestseller; written more than 90 books; acted as a TV host for TBN’s “Joy In Our Town”; and served as a blogger for Guideposts. Today, she is co-owner and President of Platinum Literary Services—a premier full-service literary firm—and a speaker at many women’s events and writers conferences across the United States. Michelle is married to her high school sweetheart, Jeff, and they have two daughters, two sons-in-law, two granddaughters and one grandson. When not writing or teaching, she enjoys bass fishing, cheering on the Chicago Cubbies, and rooting for Indiana University Sports teams

Misleading Miss Verity

(Regency Brides: Daughters of Aynsley #3)

Verity Hatherleigh has a mind of her own—but her actions do not impress her viscount papa. When she gets into one scrape too many, he sends her off to the wilds of Scotland to rethink her headstrong ways.
Anthony Jardine relished his role as curate, but his new duties as laird of Dungally aren’t always to his liking. Though he thought his new inheritance would be a blessing, somehow he’s finding nothing but trouble on these estates. And the intelligent, compassionate, feisty lass who was sent to rusticate in his territory is one of the biggest problems. He’s falling in love with her, but she doesn’t share the faith that’s his foundation—not to mention he’s been lying to her about who he really is. For the truth-loving Verity, that may be unforgivable.
have woven may spell disaster for their happiness—and for the tenants of Dungally.

My Thoughts:
Over the Thanksgiving holiday, I spent time reading a lot of books and Misleading Miss Verity was one that I adored! This is my favorite book out of the Regency Brides by Carolyn Miller. Verity is a hoot! She is her own person and very determined. She is not afraid to face the music of her actions and she is just a delight of a character. I love her! And, Anthony, he is a character. The plot will keep your interest and is one that is moving. 
This is a fantastic series and I am sad that this one is finished. I know that you will enjoy it. I cannot wait to read more books from Carolyn. This series can be read as a standalone, but is much more enjoyable when you read as a series. I recommend this entire series.

The Promises of God Storybook Bible: The Story of God's Unstoppable Love

44092372. sx318 The Promises of God Storybook Bible: The Story of God's Unstoppable Love

About:
Noah’s ark. Joseph’s dreams. Jesus’s miracles. The Bible is rich with stories for our children to hear and enjoy, but when those stories uncover the thread of God’s promises, our children learn much more than individual Bible stories. They discover how God has demonstrated His love for us, from the first promise in the garden to the promise of the new heavens and earth.

A conversational, whimsical, biblically faithful retelling of more than fifty key Bible stories, The Promises of God Storybook Bible lets your child hear favorite stories with new ears, repeatedly assuring them that each word is proof of God’s unstoppable love and unbreakable promises to His people.

My Thoughts:

The Promises of God Storybook Bible: The Story of God's Unstoppable Love is one of the most beautifully illustrated children's Bible I have ever seen. This book has over 50 Bible stories and is a beautiful book of text with illustration to keep your little one interested in the Bible story. The illustrations are colorful and eye catching. As an adult, I am very impressed with this Bible. 

The Promises of God Storybook Bible is a perfect for young readers as a devotional because the length of each story is perfect for those little ones who have shorter attention spans. It's also great to put your children to bed with. 

I love that this book is hardcover too. It will stand the test of time. The questions at the end of each story are perfect for discussion with your children. I highly recommend this Story Bible for your child!
