This book has really opened my eyes to some excellent tips on saving money at the grocery store. The author really lays out her plan for you and explains every detail of how she makes her savings stack up. Her website Faithful Provisions (awesome resource) is referenced many times throughout the book. It seems that for every topic, this lady also has a spreadsheet. She explains how she uses them and then you are able to access them for FREE on her website. I have read many books of saving money at the grocery store but this one is unique. Buy everything on sale and top the sale prices with a coupon for amazing deals. To really understand the process, I recommend reading this book all the way through. After reading, I used several of the tips, did my homework and hit the store. I only had about 10 or so things to get at this one store. The total was $26 and I left the store having only paid $7!!! I’m sold!!!
I have been selected to attend the upcoming WoF in Denver, September 2011. You have no idea how excited I am to be able to attend and blog about this event. Lisa Whelchel and Andy Andrews (two of my favorites) are going to be there along with many others! WoF is a 2-day event of women getting together, becoming inspired and leaving refreshed. God has blessed me with this unique opportunity and I can’t wait to share it with all of you. Look for my future postings, as I will be blogging during and after the event!
This book is not exactly one that I would have picked up just for the heck of it. However, I went ahead with reading it and was not disappointed. This is more of a leadership book from the perspective of how Mother Teresa ran her global corporation. She was a simple person yet she knew exactly what she was doing. This book is splint up into chapters which cover each of the main principles of how Mother Teresa did what she did. Each chapter also gives examples of other situations in which the given principles where applied. This book did not really help me as I am not in a leadership position but it did open my eyes to more of how she lived her life and handled situations.
Terri Blackstock is my favorite christian author. If you have not read any of her books yet, you are in for a treat. This is the second book in this series and the one is just as awesome as the first one was. The story starts off at an intense pace and I could not put it down. I usually read a book over the course of a few days but this one was read all in one day. Just when you think you know whats going to happen next, you are swept off into another adventure. Loved the ending but sure hope she writes another one for this series.
Now this is my perfect cookbook. I am far from great in the kitchen but this book has lots of recipes that I cannot wait to try. The bonus is that through reading this book I have no fear of the recipes as this book helps you to not feel so intimidated. I love the writing style throughout the book and there is something to be said for a cookbook that has recipes in it that I am actually willing to make. This is a must have for my kitchen and I highly recommend it.
The economy is crap and many people find themselves struggling to keep up. This book takes you into the world of the Amish. One that I am completely fascinated by. The author heads out and visits with the people of a local Amish community and tries to get inside tips on how they manage to prosper so well. There are countless ideas throughout this book of how to reuse, recycle, and even rethink how your spend your money. I loved this book as I am trying to cut corners to save and enjoy finding new ideas on how to creatively live with abundance.
Definitely a perfect book for a day at the beach. Meridith is supportive wife of a workaholic husband who turns out to be nothing more than a crook. After he is arrested, his wife and son also become a speculation to the FBI. Meridith takes off to Nantucket to stay with her lifelong best friend, Connie. The is a pain history that these two have to sort through and their summer at the beach starts out awkward. The book gets kinda slow in some parts but then manages to pick back up with a great ending.
