2017 Reading Challenge ~ March

This month's reading challenge theme is Encouragement...choose a book to read that is inspirational, a self-help, or a religious book.  I chose "More than the Tattooed Mormon" by Al Carraway.


This is actually my second time reading this book.  The first time I read this book, I read it very quickly because my kids wanted to read it and I wanted to be able to have a conversation with them should they have any questions.
This second reading was slower and I enjoyed Al's story even more.  Al's story is about her conversion to the Church of Jesus Christ of Latter Day Saints and more.  It's a story of faith, courage, strength and prayer.  I agree with Brad Wilcox, PhD..."Al shares her story with frankness and passion.  She fills each chapter with memorable insights and true wisdom.  But this book isn't really about Al.  It is about God and you! It is about the transformation that is possible for all of us through the Atonement of Jesus Christ."

I highly recommend this book to my friends and family.

(Disclaimer:  I purchased this book in 2016 for my personal reading.  The author did not ask me to review this book and I did not get any compensation for my review.)

5 Things Friday - Random Favorites





This is a little late as I have been sick these past few days and I realized that today is now Saturday.  So in no particular order...here are my five favorite random things:

1)  Chocolate!  Need I say more :)

2)  Autumn...the colored leaves are spectacular in New England and the high humidity is gone.

3)  Gettysburg National Park...standing on hallowed grounds and realizing that men died where I stood was one of the most overwhelming experiences I have ever had.

4)  Cows...my favorite farm animal. 

5)  Puzzles...I could spend all day putting together a puzzle. 

What are your random favorites?

Come join the fun and link your post to 5 Things Friday over at Quiet Pandemonium...come join the fun!

Pi(e) Night

Tonight was Pi(e) Night for our ward.  It's a fun night of pizza, pies and fun science experiments.  Watching the excitement in the eyes of the younger kids makes the night enjoyable.  Our kids helped out with some of the activities and also had fun visiting with their friends.

Don't forget...Pi day is 3/14  :)
