Jacob is creative! ….and practical!!

Last week, I walked into the family room to see him pumping the aquarium to clean it for the week.

Knowing the used fish water is good for plants, he had run a hose from the pump, out the window and into the square foot beds (where he had help waiting), to fertilize the gardens with the water.

Book Review- Bold Love

January 24, 2012

If you can’t tell, I’m REALLY enjoying Good Reads!

Thank you, Courtney, for the suggestion! It’s helping me stay on top of my book goals for this year.

So, here goes:

Bold LoveBold Love by Dan B. Allender

My rating: 4 of 5 stars

When I first started Bold Love, I had a very difficult time following the writer…I think I got lost in his writing.

I’m so glad I didn’t stop. This book caused me to examine true love in light of God’s love for us, and specifically, forgiveness. I personally, most enjoyed the sections on how to love different types of people, especially those who hurt you.

I will most definitely read this book again in the future.

View all my reviews

*On a personal note, I have often struggled with what it means to genuinely love someone…. what does that look like?
Is it love to continue to encourage someone who is living in sin?
What about those who have hurt you?
How do you forgive what feels to be the most unforgivable of hurts?

As usual, I don’t necessarily agree with everything the writer shares, but this book is full of great information and insight for Christians.

Thank you, Shepherd Family, for loaning it to me! I would say this is a book I’ll be thinking through for some time and plan to read again in the future.

I bought Jonathan an egg last week. The directions said to place it in water and a pet would hatch….can you tell he’s excited?

This was a gift from Joshua’s new employer. He brought it when he came to visit and have dinner last week.

It was one of the best cheesecakes I’ve EVER had!
