Book Review: I Can Only Imagine

Since "I Can Only Imagine" is one of my favorite songs, I had to get the I Can Only Imagine: A Friendship with Jesus Now and Forever by Bart Millard of MercyMe. This book is a nice hard covered book. The pages are good quality. The size is perfect for a preschooler. The story is basically talking about all the favorite things the little boy enjoys and asking if God would love them too. It encourages a relationship with Jesus now as well as looking forward to what wonderful things heaven will entail. I love that this book talks about pets in heaven. I would recommend this book for preschoolers and for parents who really like the song!

Book Review: Jesus Calling

This Jesus Calling adult coloring book is a absolutely beautiful. I got it as a gift for my sister, who's really into drawing and coloring. One thing I really liked about this specific book the quality of the pages! The pages are nice and thick. You can use various coloring mediums on the pages. The pictures, inspirational sayings and patterns are great for some coloring therapy! I recommend this coloring book for all adults who enjoy crafting, and doodling!

Book Review: Jesus Loves the World

I can't help it... I just love the Beginner's Bible series, and so do my little ones. The Jesus Loves the World is the story of Jesus, his ministry, his death, and his resurrection. I didn't realize when I first requested this book that it would be the Easter story... but it's perfect for Easter. Unlike many of the other Beginner Bible series, this one isn't the padded board book. It's the thinner type. The cut of the book is fun and as all the other series, the Jesus Loves the World has the classic illustration style. I am glad my preschoolers have this to add to their collection. I would definitely recommend adding this to your child's Easter basket.

Book Review: In the Middle of the Mess

I recently started reading In the Middle of the Mess by Sheila Walsh. This book is not for the faint of heart. The opening chapter of the book is a letter from Sheila to her dad, it's full of emotions and darkness. For those who don't know, Sheila Walsh has battled with depression and thoughts of suicide for her entire life. She is very open about her struggles but also gives hope in knowing the goodness of God. I started this post by saying "I recently started reading...". This book at this time in my life is a little bit too intense on the emotional side. I was hoping for something just encouraging, but this book is much more than that. It was too sad for me and I struggled to read it. It may help other people who are struggling with some difficult situations in their life, but it wasn't the right book for me.

Book Review: With Love from Me to You

With Love from Me to You came just in time for Valentine's day. The polar bear delivers valentines to all her little friends by sharing how we can love and kindness to those around us. The boardbook has adorable illustrations and is a great size for preschools.  It's a quick read for bedtime.

Book Review: Indescribable 100 Devotions about God and Science

If you've ever heard Louie Giglio speak, you know that he is a man of God and a man of science. I was super excited to receive Indescribable 100 Devotions about God and Science knowing that I knew he would relate everything back to God and science! Each devotional has a verse, a relevant story, and a Be Amazed section which contains some really interesting and fun science facts. My preschooler loves this book. Each devotional is quick and you can get both your quiet time and your science lesson in one devotion. I would recommend this book for any science fans out there. As a parent, I appreciate the incorporation of science into this book. We could use more books that focus on science.

Book Review: I'm Not A Scaredy Cat

I'm Not A Scaredy Cat by Max Lucado is a adorable story of a cat who gets frightened by everything. However, he has a cute little prayer he says in every scary situation. My little one wanted to read it as soon as this book arrived and thought the book was very funny. We loved the little prayer and will be practicing the prayer so we have something to remember when we get scared. I would recommend this book for any little one who gets scared easily or may get scared at night time. Teaching them this prayer could help them be brave, like this adorable kitty. We loved the illustrations and the good quality hard cover.
