Alisa Childers wrote a thought-provoking review in Girl, Wash Your Face? What Rachel Hollis Gets Right and Wrong.
I really like shrimp and grits, so I tried Rachael Ray’s Creamed Corn with Sausage and Shrimp for supper on Thursday night. Y’all. It was SO good!!
I read two non-fiction and two fiction books this month.
The Tech-Wise Family by Andy Crouch was a great book dealing with setting boundaries around technology in our homes. He shared many practical tips that have worked for his family. I think this book is helpful for all families, and especially those who are just introducing technology to their children. Having a strategy beforehand is key to not allowing devices to take over your family.
One Thousand Gifts by Ann Voskamp is a book I’ve read several times before. It’s a wonderful re-read when I feel I’ve lost the sense of gratefulness that I want to characterize my life.
The first fiction book I read was A Time to Stand by Robert Whitlow. I’ve enjoyed some of his other books, but this one was seemed a little slow. He didn’t develop the legal side of the story as much, which is what I typically like about his books
The Illusionist’s Apprentice by Kristy Cambron is about a young woman who was an apprentice of Harry Houdini. This was not my favorite book by this author (that honor goes to The Lost Castle), but it was still an enjoyable read. I’ve now read all of her books, and am awaiting the release of Castle on the Rise (second in the Lost Castle series) in February.
Hope you have a wonderful weekend!!
