Story of a young girl who struggles with EA or TEF. My son had a TEF at birth and I wish this book had been around when he was young. Drawings in the story show the difference between what goes on in her throat and her sisters and how to deal with it.
Enjoyed this story, but the REALLY good stuff begins on page 165 when Dana begins sharing some of her "life lessons learned" information. Such as Find you strong voice, Ban the exclamation point, No Ugg boots at the office and other lessons to help you get further in your career and life. I wish I could have a "mentoring minute" with her! (oops, an exclamation point)
Interesting read with a lot of generalities of the culture. Makes you realize how repressed the women are in this culture and to me that makes it lop sided and missing out on an awful lot of things they could add to community. It is ironic that the picture on the front is of two women at the book stall......when many of the women were denied an education so they can't read.
Enjoyable book about not being afraid to make drastic changes in your life because they just might turn out OK! I enjoyed the book about after about 1/3 of the way into it, and then it really got going. Ending was OK, but felt a bit rushed First book I have read by this author and wouldn't mind picking up another. If you love books, it is fun to watch Nina try to match the perfect book to each person...something us book lovers can relate to!
Another well written Judith Miller book. Great lessons on family, devotion, trust God even when His path seems unclear, and supporting fellow Christians in time of need whether it be emotionally, spiritually, or helping them become financially responsible. Highly recommend.
Loved this book as much as book #1.....Dr Larimore brings you along with him into a deeper relationship with his patients, community, faith, and family. He works on the forefront with disease such as AIDS before they even had a name or were known. Highly recommend!
Book #3 in the Bryson City series is even BETTER than the first two and I thought they were great! Thoroughly have enjoyed this series and wish there was a book 4 to continue their family journey. I don't want to give anything away, loved the chapter with the young patient towards the end of the book.
What a delightful book, in the tradition of the Mitford Tales, of a young dr's first year in practice in a small town in the Smoky Mountains. His search to fit into his community, learn, and be the best he can be in all areas of life make this an easy, fun to read story. The story of his first "delivery" begins the book with a bang and keeps on rolling.
Suspense keeps your reading to the end for the surprise ending! Enjoyed the characters, but especially Lily, who keeps always looking for the good in everyone and changes those around her for the better.
Enjoyable book. It was very interesting to "see" the process involved and the many layered steps to creating the beautiful carousel horses. I never thought to look to see if there is any difference between at outside horse and an inner one.....next time I see one I will! Suspenseful, yet as always, leading you to trust God with outcomes even when it seems tough and you can't see the finish.
Morrow Little, the name just captures your attention to get you to pick up this excellent book by Laura Frantz. I enjoyed following Morrow and her growth as a woman and her spiritual journey. The disappointments, fears, and joys while different that our world today, offer a common theme of forgiveness, trusting, and spiritual growth that we all encounter as we journey through life. Very enjoyable and loved the ending!!
Terri Blackstock has a great story here! Covenant child has similarities to the Prodigal Son, but takes you much more in depth about how situations change change with OUR patience with God's answer of "wait" or "not now".
one of my children's favorite books, great story for any child facing surgery or a hospitalization....of course George does what he does best, always getting into trouble......won't that Man in the Yellow Hat ever learn!!
Although a bit slow to get into, hang in there because by the end this book has you thinking without being judgmental. Why do we live in the suburbs and then have our lives so busy we're never home to enjoy the home and community we live in? Quote from towards the end of the book: "The suburbs require, I think, a kind of fierceness to stay fully awake to God and the work of God in the world." (page 202).
Book #2 in the "Southern Sewing Circle" series. What another fun mystery with Tori Sinclair following the threads of a mystery when Colby Calhoun mysteriously disappears. This is a series worth following.
