One Day Way Review

I got this book to review from blogging for books. Its a great website. Anyway, I loved this book! It is written in a way that I felt as if the author was sitting at my kitchen table, having a cup of coffee with me and discussing weight loss challenges! In the book Chantel discusses how to take the weight-loss journey one day at a time. She discusses the ups and downs of weight loss, and about giving your self grace while also having accountability. She includes a contract in the back of the book, committing oneself to taking life one day at a time, building yourself and others up rather than tearing down, and being your best person.
This may sound like a lot of fluff, but it is actually a very helpful book. She does include a small food plan, and while it doesn't seem like the most realistic one for me, it is good to see the perspective that comes from that plan.
I would recommend this book to others, I look forward to sharing it with friends.

Reflecting Him

"Reflecting Him: Living for Jesus and Loving It is a ten-week Bible study that encourages women to see God's life lesson throughout their day. A detailed look at a potter and his wheel gives new insights to the creation of man. Open your eyes to see how God uses daily, mundane experiences to teach spiritual truths. As Jesus becomes part of eveything you do, you will be reflecting Him in ways you never dreamed possible."
"Carla McDougal, the founder of
Reflective Life Ministries, has a passion
for encouraging women to live every day
for Jesus Christ"
This book is an in depth study of the bible, Jesus, His creation, and all things surrounding it. It encourages the reader to look at aspects of God's word that might otherwise have been passed over, and contains great insight and inspiration.

This book was a little dry to me at times, sort of textbook like in its questions, however I appreciated the encourage to deepen my knowledge of and relationship with God. I still havent finished reading this book, however I am reading it daily, and looking forward to what is to come!

Heres the mail...

One of my favorite kids songs is the one from Nick Jr.'s Blue's Clues. It is about Blue getting the mail and starts "Here's the mail, it never fails, it makes me want to wag my tail.." This week was a great "mail week."

  I got two packages from Procter and Gamble, one from my scrapbooking group, a book from a friend that I need for class, a package for my kids, and a set of luggage that I got for less than $3!  The two from procter and gamble I thought were the most fun. They always come unexpected, and are always so useful!

Mail like this does make me "wag my tail"!  I could do without the bills though!
