Teaching Kids Authentic Worship
by Kathleen Chapman

Terrific book with very practical and easy to implement ways to help children truly understand what it means to worship our amazing God. I learned a lot from reading it- there is a difference between ‘worship’ and ‘praise’ for instance! Worship is total focus on who God is; praise thanks God for how our life is impacted because of Him. We want our children to understand that life is NOT about them; it is all about HIM. Worshiping God focuses all attention on God; who He is, what He has done. Thankful to have found this gem of a book and am looking forward to using its helpful advice at home and church.

It Starts With Us
by Colleen Hoover

Being the second book in this series, it had a big act to follow. This was a continuation of the Lily, Atlas, and Ryle saga, with the narrator altering between Atlas and Lily. Lily’s journal entries were shared to act as a catalyst for reminiscing for both parties. As much as they want to be together in the present day, Lily struggles because she’s still connected to Ryle via her daughter. Atlas struggles because he discovers the person who has been vandalizing his restaurants is a younger brother, which he never knew he had. While overcoming obstacles, Lily and Atlas journey down life’s path to find their way to be together again. This book was entertaining, even if it wasn’t as fantastic as the first book. I wouldn’t go out of my way to recommend this book; however, I would recommend the first one, so people might find their way to this one.

It Ends With Us
by Colleen Hoover

It Ends With Us focuses on a woman named Lily Bloom. She had a very difficult upbringing as her father was abusive to her mother. As a teenager, she assists a homeless teen, Atlas, squatting in a nearby house. Eventually Atlas leaves to go to Boston to work for a better life. Lily moves to Boston years later and meets a man named Ryle. They eventually get married. He becomes very abusive like her father was. She runs into Atlas at a restaurant, which he now owns. Obviously, this reconnection upsets Ryle and he takes it out on Lily physically. He harms her and she seeks help from Atlas. She then discovers she is pregnant. It Ends With Us refers to the cycle of abuse. Lily is determined that she and her daughter will no longer live in fear of abuse. This book was a homerun. The character development is spot on, so the reader gets absorbed into the rollercoaster of emotions faced by the victim. This book was recommended to me by a friend, and I intend to spread the word that this book is a must read.

by Colleen Hoover

Slammed is about a young adult named Layken who moves with her mother and brother to a new home after the sudden death of her father. She meets Will, who lives across the road and they begin to date. His parents are deceased and he’s raising his little brother. School starts up and she discovers that her new love interest is one of her high school teachers. The book describes how Lake navigates her new relationship and her mother’s terminal illness. Overall this book was pretty good. It definitely stirs up emotions in the reader. I found myself crying as the mother told her children that she was going to die. That resonates a lot with me, as I am a mother myself. I have already recommended this book to a friend.

Enchanted To Meet You
by Meg Cabot

This is a delightful book about a town that secretly has witches. The main character owns her own clothing store, where she uses her magic to assist people in finding their perfect outfits. One day a male witch shows up and notifies her that she is the chosen one. She must help train a young witch in order to save their town from impending doom. This witchy romantic comedy was a joy to read. I look forward to more books in this series. I would recommend this to ladies for a beach read.

The Dutch House
by Ann Patchett

The Dutch House is about Danny and Maeve, a brother and sister, who live with their father in an estate like a mansion. The father bought the mansion for the mother, but she ended up leaving. He remarries a woman, and once he has passed, she eventually evicts Danny and his sister. They become a little obsessed with the estate and frequently sit in front of the grounds in their car, waiting to see if anyone emerges. Although it isn’t a book I would typically read, I did sort of enjoy the story once it got going. It was also narrated by Tom Hanks, which was a bonus. I would certainly recommend this (audiobook version) to any avid reader.
