Top Ten Tuesday: New Year’s Resolutions

Top Ten Tuesday: New Year’s Resolutions

Top Ten Tuesday 51

This week, we’re talking about resolutions and thankfully the topic was left open-ended. If it had just been book-exclusive, my post would have looked something like “Read. Read. Read. As usual.” So… this way will hopefully be more meaningful 🙂

Review: Pieces on Earth by Cathy Bryant

Review: Pieces on Earth by Cathy Bryant

Cathy Bryant, Christian, Christmas, contemporary 1

The plot of Pieces on Earth revolved around Liv’s anxiety and stress over her husband’s unexpected deployment to Afghanistan as well as other life “yuck” that just all piles on at once. Through the process, Liv and her daughter and even a friend or two learn a truth timely for today’s world – Life is broken. We are broken. Everything is a mess. But God sent Jesus to be our “Fixer”, to rescue us from our mess and repair what is broken.

Top Ten Tuesday: Dear Santa

Christmas, J.K. Rowling, Melanie Dickerson, Susan May Warren, Top Ten Tuesday 91

Welcome to this Christmas week edition of Top Ten Tuesday, a weekly blog linkup hosted by The Broke and the Bookish. Today’s topic is all about the books we wouldn’t mind seeing under our tree.

Since “all the books” would make for a pretty boring post, I’ve narrowed it down somewhat 😉 Anyone still looking for Christmasy gift ideas for yours truly, feel free to take notes.
