A Charming Tale of Heaven on Earth…

A Charming Story About Giving....png

It is truly a pleasure to have received this book and to be able to share it with you today.  The Suitcase: A story about giving peaked my curiosity from the moment it arrived.

This is the story of a boy named Thomas.  He is a boy who loves to play, to spin, and to talk to his pet goat.

Perhaps the spinning drew me into the story.  Our little girls have a “spinning club” every night before bed where they twirl their little hearts out and literally wind down for the night.  (Or wind up… I’m never quite sure which…)

It was a privilege to receive this book and to be able to share it with you today.

Undoubtedly in our world today, many people have decided they do not believe in a higher power.  Others reject religion’s claims about this higher power, citing the impossibility of a loving God, the presence of evil in the world, and even our inability to know anything with certainty at all.

For many, reason, logic, and science have stamped out the existence of God.

But in his new book Going Deeper, Leo Severino presents the idea that logic should lead us to reality.

When you're ready to forgive but don't know where to start... turn to Mary..png

*This book, like many on this site, was given to me in exchange for my honest review. I’m grateful for the opportunity to share it with you today.

Forgiveness hurts.  Period.

When we forgive, we have to swallow our pride in a big way.  So, when we’ve gone through something traumatic and need to find healing and peace, that healing process that leads to forgiveness can be painful, too.

Quiet your Heart this Season....png

During this wonder-filled time of anticipation, as we await the coming of Christmas, our souls long for pause and solace from the hustle and bustle.  The cold air and stillness of night make me want to curl up with hot tea, a hand-stitched quilt, and a good book.  Speaking of good books, here’s a good one that I just put down..

Praying the Rosary Like Never Before

An Ex.jpg

I have found much comfort and peace in praying the rosary in times of joy, in times of anxiety, and in times of sorrow.  Along with my Catholic faith, the rosary is perhaps the best gift my family has passed on to me.
