Weekend update on a little of everything

So excited tonight we go see the band Elliott play as well as listen to motivational speaker Nick Vujicic from "Life without Limbs" Should be a wonderful night. Today has been extremely difficult for me emotionally. I dont know why for sure thinking it is a hormonal swing... uuggg we women have to deal with things that guys have no idea about dont we LOL... anyway Have a blessed weekend everyone. I will be working at posting our homeschool schedule next week. Things have been tough lately my health has not been good but I am praying that things look up soon. We ended up not doing much official book school the last 2 weeks as I was really ill. But luckily for Christmas my son got a bunch of learning games for the computer that have all subjects included. So he has worked on those and the mathletics website and little princess has worked on as well as her kindergarten games. Looking very much forward to getting back on routine around here with a healthy mommy. Please keep my health in prayer if you would as I could really use it. I am now on blood pressure medication along with my fibro meds and I dont like being on so many. I am working at getting healthy weight wise and hope/pray that my weight reduction will help the blood pressure so I can get off that med. Take care all.

Essentials For Life by Marcia Ford (a book review for booksneeze)

Follow the link below to get your own copy of this great little book!
Essentials for Life: Your Back-to-Basics Guide to What Matters Most

I love books it just seems I have not had as much reading time in the summer months.

I recieved a free copy of the book reviewed here in compensation for my review that is all that has been provided from the publisher.

Essentials for Life by Marcia Ford

I really enjoyed this book. It is not a novel type which is nice for short bouts of reading time. Its like a little instruction guide when your getting off kilter with your bible study or in your daily walk. When you are in need of Inspiration on digging into scriptures deeper or getting Closer to God it is a great resource. I found the brief 2 page inspirations and instructions to be a great way to dig deeper into my daily bible study. This book would be especially helpful for new believers and those returning to Christ to boost thier walk with the Lord and get them jumpstarted with some great short reminders and instruction. Overall I really like the book and will keep it on my bible study shelf to reference back to when I need to.

To my regular readers I will return soon with more regular postings... we have had some illnesses here and a sick piggy is taking extra time right now. School begins offically ( I know I already said that however the last 2 weeks we have done light schoolwork) Heavy scheduling has been completed and we are ready to hit it hard this coming week. Will post some more soon on all that. Have a blessed Lords Day everyone
