Our family is looking forward to enjoying Thanksgiving week together.  My next new post will be on Monday, November 27th.

Ordinary Graces: Word Gifts for Any Season – Lucinda Secrest McDowell

Ordinary Graces: Word Gifts for Any Season


Ordinary Graces is a lovely devotional that is uplifting and inspiring. The book is divided into four sections: grace, strength, gratitude, and life. Each entry includes a Bible verse and a short story or reflection based upon one specific word from the verse. This devotional would be a wonderful gift for a friend.

Way Back Wednesday ~ Saying Grace: A Prayer of Thanksgiving (Traditions of Faith) – Virginia Kroll

Saying Grace: A Prayer of Thanksgiving (Traditions of Faith)


This post originally appeared November 2013.

Saying Grace: A Prayer of Thanksgiving is a sweet book that describes life as an early settler.  The story itself features a little girl named Grace who struggles to remember her spelling word for school – bounty.  The reader is soon introduced to the world of hardship as well as blessings that colonists encountered.  Saying Grace: A Prayer of Thanksgiving features beautiful illustrations and is a wonderful Thanksgiving book.

Hug Me, Please! – Przemyslaw Wechterowicz

Hug Me, Please!


I have to admit that the title of the book coupled with the image on the cover caught my attention when I was at the library.  It just looked like it would be a delight, and it is!  This sweet tale features a Daddy Bear and his son who share the joy and warmth of hugs with a wide variety of forest friends.  The illustrations in this book are particularly well done and really enhance the text.

Adored: 365 Devotions for Young Women – Lindsay A. Franklin

Adored: 365 Devotions for Young Women


Adored is a lovely devotional.  Each daily passage begins with scripture and then includes a few paragraphs which cover applying that verse within your life.  There are also a few lines provided for notes at the end of each section.  If you have a tween or teen girl on your Christmas list, this devotional would make a perfect gift.

Total Christmas Makeover: 31 Devotions to Celebrate with Purpose – Melissa Spoelstra

Total Christmas Makeover: 31 Devotions to Celebrate with Purpose


It is really easy to get caught up in the hustle and bustle of preparing for Christmas and completely lose focus on why we actually celebrate Christmas.  Total Christmas Makeover is a great way to refocus yourself and your family.  This seasonal devotional is terrific.  I particularly liked the questions for reflection at the end of each devotion as well as the practical approach suggestions which provide activity ideas for families.

A Forest, a Flood, and an Unlikely Star – J.A.Myhre

A Forest, a Flood, and an Unlikely Star (Rwendigo Tales)


A Forest, a Flood, and an Unlikely Star is the third book in the Rwendigo Series.  This African adventure story which features a boy, his sister, and an orphaned gorilla is filled with action.  It also includes many current concerns that face Africa including AIDS, malnutrition, and environmental concerns.  This series is written for upper elementary and middle school aged children, but is worthy of being partner read with a parent in order to discuss all the material presented in the text.

Mom Strong: How to Fight with All That’s in You for Your Family and Your Faith – Heidi St. John

Becoming MomStrong: How to Fight with All That’s in You for Your Family and Your Faith


Mom Strong is an encouraging, biblically based guide to navigating motherhood.  It is written by popular Mommy Blogger – Heidi St. John, and it is definitely a winner.  Many books aimed at Moms focus on the early years.  Mom Strong tackles issues that impact Moms of older children which I really appreciated.  Each chapter is packed with wisdom.  Of special note are the scripture based prayer points which are outstanding.
