I reviewed this book for my husband, who has been reading alot of Christian literature books for study, so he can understand more about the faith. Most of the books he's read so far were great, he couldn't put them down, this one, however, he couldn't keep in his hands. I don't recall what his comment was, but he read a couple chapters, like he does with all the books he reads before he knows whether he'll get into it, but this one he didn't care much for. I personally didn't read it yet, but I know that if he didn't like it, I won't. I don't like putting up a review like this, but sometimes you have to.

I started this book & at first wasn't sure about it since I'm not usually one for reading "modern" type romance fiction, however, this one is well worth reading. The challenges that the main character has is what a lot of families run into, with spouses leaving to pursue a career instead of raising a family. The authors did a great job at putting real life instances in their book of fiction. Its a very good read, not too emotional or dramatic, but a great book to pick up in the evening before bed.

I tried reading The Chasm by Randy Alcorn, & it is a difficult read. If your into romance, Amish, or war history type novels, this is not your type of read. The author is well wrote, but unless you have time to understand were the Randy is coming from, its not exactly a great book for novel readers....

So far, every book I've bought from The Ancient Practices series is very explanatory, and easy to understand. This one, by Nora Gallagher, explains communion in thick answers like the rest of the books, which is very nice for those who don't understand the meaning behind the subjects. That's why I've been collecting the book series so I can understand more behind the Christian faith. I grew up Christian, but never paid enough attention as a child to fully understand, so far, this series is helping alot. Its great to see these authors also putting in their own life stories about what they write about to help you understand different reactions about communion, and the Sabbath, ect.

I just read The Bridge of Peace, by Cindy Woodsmall the other night. Even though this was once again book 2 in a series of books, it was a very good book. It has drama, romance, happiness, sadness, everything you get in real life, but as fiction. Its wonderful to see the author use the Old Ways in her writing so that so many people can get the feel that they're actually part of the book while they're reading it. I'm looking forward to seeing book 3 this fall. I'm going to try and find The Hope of Refuge at the library so I can make sure I know all the characters, but book 2 does explain who's who in the back, thankfully. Well wrote!!

Well, my sage seedlings didn't make it. It either got too hot or cold, not real sure. I haven't replanted them yet, however, I forgot to label my seedling containers very well so not real sure what I have started, however, I know its probably some Swiss Chards & I definitely know I have some Coriander started, those are looking nice & healthy. My yard is still a muddy mess, so I'm waiting until April to buy the wood stuff for my beds, I may end up helping my sister make some raised beds so she can have one too, but it'll be up to her. So, I may be working on 2 gardens :) I just can't wait for warmer weather because this fall I plan on canning & pickling things!! I'll be posting recipes, too. I have catnip, (again, had to replant), habanero's, 2 types of lettuce planted again so far. I'll write a better list later on, & they really do great at having the best information on the back of the packets for germination dates. They are for sure right on with timing. Ta-ta for now!
