Reading Roundup | January 2018

Reading Roundup January 2018. Book reviews for The Gospel at 30,000 Feet by Dieter F. Uchtdorf, That We May Be One by Tom Christofferson, Half-Broken Horses by Jeanette Wells, and Isaiah's Daughter by Mesu Andrews.

It’s been a hot minute since I did a Reading Roundup! I didn’t really blog much the last bit of 2017, and I’ve read quite a few books those months. In December, I read a lot of Christmas books, but I don’t want to review them now…it’s not in season. My grandma has this tradition of getting us a new Christmas-based book every year, so I’ve been looking through those recently. But, I did get a book from Blogging For Books in December and it’s high time I reviewed it! I also read three books this month, two for different book clubs I’m in, and one from Deseret Book.

How Evelyn’s Trouble with Bowel Movements Taught Me About the Atonement

You don't really understand how much God loved His children to give His only Begotten Son up, nor do you realize how much Christ loved us to take upon Himself all the sins the pain of the world, until you become a parent. Especially a parent whose newborn daughter can't pass bowel movements by herself.

As you know, I only breastfed Evelyn for four days. I felt completely at peace with that decision, as did Justin. It was best for our family situation to have Evelyn drink from a bottle and to save me from the pain and stress of nursing. However, there have been numerous days these past two and a half months that I have thought I made a terrible mistake. Especially when it came to Evelyn’s bowel movements.

See, the problem is that Evelyn can’t poop by herself.

Ever wonder why Christ would take upon Himself all the sins and pain of the world? Try having a daughter who can't poop by herself and you'll understand! Continue Reading

Reading Roundup | Feb 2017

Book review for At the Pulpit: LDS Women discourses.

Sadly, I was only able to read one book this month for Reading Roundup, but it was a great one! Just like last month, I was again contacted by the LDS Church Historian’s Press to review a book. *I received this book free in exchange for a review. All thoughts and opinions are my own.* Even more than the book I got last month, I was so excited to read the book I got!

#LoveBlog 2017 Day 9 | A Servant’s Heart

Christians are to be Christ-like. One of the best way to do so is by performing service. During His earthly ministry, not only did Christ teach and preach, but He served others: He healed the sick, ate with the poor and sinners, and forgave. He is our King, Lord, and Savior. But, He acted as a servant during His life: during the Last Supper, He washed the feet of His disciples! We should follow His example of having a servant’s heart. Continue Reading

Reading Roundup | Jan 2017

Book reviews for Saints at Devil's Gate and Love Me True.

It’s a new year. I know a lot of bloggers have a list of books they want to read, already. I do too. It’s called, “all the books on my bookshelf that I own and have never read yet.” That was basically the same plan for last year, too. But, I love to include a library book now and then, or a book from Blogging for Books. I’ve even done some book reviews for Cedar Forts Publishing, which is a Mormon-owned (not Church-owned) publishing company. This month, I was actually contacted by the author or publisher of both books I read for Reading Roundup.
