Happy Easter & A Book Review!

Happy Easter everyone!  So I know I’ve been all about reviewing books lately, and there’s a reason for that… I’ll share more about that at some point here with you!  Our family is now caring for 8 baby chicks as we continue our homestead plans and await the birth of our 4th child!  So there’s lots of exciting activity going on here at the Mason home.

A Charming Tale of Heaven on Earth…

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…)

A Precious Set of Saint Books for your Saints-in-Training

What a blessing it is for our children to be able to learn about the saints.  With all the once-upon-a-time charm and long-ago beauty of the classic fairytales, this set of books is sure to delight your children.  As I read these books at bedtime, I found myself saying, “And did you know this princess is real?  This is a true story!”  My girls lit up as they discovered that these stories really happened, and I saw the little wheels of memorization turning in their head the way they do when they encounter a great new story and learn it by heart.  Read the rest of this entry »

*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.
