Ready or not by Drew Moser and Jess Fankhauser

First off I wish this book was around when I was a little younger, filled with practical insight and sage wisdom this book is an essential for helping navigate ones 20's which are full of so many decisions that deeply affect the rest of your life. This book addresses so many of those decisions and helps give one a good foundation for the rest of your life.
I loved how this book carefully wove scriptures, real life stories and great insight into all of its pages. This book would make an exceptional gift for college graduation or just because as I really think many young people would benefit from it.

The Life Giving Parent by Clay and Sally Clarkson

I think most Christian parents have heard of Sally Clarkson and her books as they come highly recommend and are filled with wonderful, Christ centered Biblical insight.  So when I got the chance to grab their newest book I was eager and it did not disappoint!
Filled with sage advice this book really helps breathe life into ones mission as a parent reminding one how sacred and important being a parent truly is. I love how this book was not just geared towards Mother's like so many books out there but is for both parent's. I also appreciate how this book is not a one size fits all for children but readily acknowledges that each child is different as well the authors understand!
This book is a great resource that you will find yourself coming back to time and again especially as you go through different seasons of parenting.

Vegan Comfort classics by Lauren Toyota

If anything can convince me that vegan food is delicious it is this book. I like meat a lot and feel like a lot of vegan recipes are poor substitutes but  this book sets out to prove that vegan recipes can be as good and sometimes I dare say can be better than their non-vegan counterparts,
Filled with amazing photography and delicious and healthy recipes this book is amazing.

Real-Life Romance by Rhonda Stoppe

Real-Life Romance
Real-Life Romance: Inspiring Stories to Help You Believe in True Love (Harvest House, February 2018)
Do you believe in true love?
In a world of broken relationships and hurting people, it can seem like all we ever see is heartache—that marriages are doomed from the start and romance isn’t worth the risk.
But heart-fluttering, long-lasting love is all around us…we just have to look for it!
This collection of beautiful, real-life accounts will bring laughter and tears as you enjoy each story of ordinary people who found extraordinary love. Page after page, you will find inspiration to
—rekindle the romance in your love story
—trust in God’s providence and timing
—faithfully hope for your own happily-ever-after
—celebrate true romance
—believe in life-long love
Don’t let the world define romance for you! See how God is at work in the hearts of His people—knitting together hearts in a love that forever endures.
My opinion: What a fabulous collection of real life romances! This book was so much fun to read as you read about real couples who have gone through so much and have prevailed and kept their romance alive and survived in a world riddled with divorce. I loved how this book had stories of couples from all different stages of life and circumstances, the stories really resonated with me and inspired me to think about my own marriage and how I can strive to always put God first. Engaging and encouraging this book is an excellent read.I received a copy of this book in exchange for my honest opinion.
