Grit and Grace: Devotions for Warrior Moms – Suzanne Hadley Gosselin and Gretta Kennedy

Grit and Grace is a ninety day devotional that provides encouragement for mothers.  The book is filled with short highly relatable devotions that are coupled with a scripture and a prayer.  This book would make a lovely gift for a new mom.

While this complimentary book was provided for review by Harvest House Publishers, no other compensation was given. All remarks are my personal and honest opinions.

The Library Book – Susan Orlean

The Library Book is a fascinating book.  It details the terrible fire that consumed the Central Branch of Los Angeles Public Library in 1986, but it also serves as a love letter to libraries.  It introduces the reader to a variety of different librarians from the past to the present and provides insight regarding how libraries work behind the scenes.  I love this one!
