My rating: 5 of 5 stars







I received this book yesterday in the mail and I just could not put it down and I finished it last night!

If you love the "Funny Stupid" movies on the Syfy channel then this book is for you.



I am a BIG FAN OF THE SHARKNADO MOVIES!



In this book you can read HOW TO SURVIVE:



A Sharknado



An Arachnoquake



A Stoneado



Bigfoot



A Dinoshark



A Gatoroid



Redneck Gator



A Robocroc



A Sharktopus



and many other stories.



I found this book to he hilarious, I was reading and giggling at the same time.



Have you ever wondered if some of these disasters could happen? Or if there is a Bigfoot?
I suggest you read this book and you might just find yourself prepared when monsters and mother nature attack.

The 5 Things You Need to Know If You're Homeschooling



The 5 Things You Need to Know If You're Homeschooling






Hoping to Write a Real Homeschool Story?

1.  Don’t be discouraged by a day. It’s only one day. And such days do not determine the entire tale. Just turn that page and keep going. As Anne of Green Gables says, “Isn’t it nice to think that tomorrow is a new day with no mistakes in it yet?” Lovely thought. Tomorrow is a fresh piece of paper on which to write something totally new.


2.  It’s a story about a relationship – not a method. Truly. It doesn’t matter what curriculum you use or what subjects you cover. While it might not be how it’s presented out there, that’s the inside scoop. What matters is their hearts. That terrific (or lousy) math curriculum will never have the significant impact on their lives that a loving, learning, teaching parent will. You are what they really need.


3.  Don’t read over someone else’s shoulder. Their story is not your story. That family over there might look accomplished and successful. And that’s great for them. But you are on your own unique adventure. Look to the Lord what for what He intends for your family. He’s got something in mind specially suited to you.


4.  Review your main theme. Remind yourself why you’re doing what you’re doing. “Where there is no vision, the people perish” (Prov. 29:18). So if you feel like you’re “perishing”? Go back to the beginning. Why you started this story in the first place. It might be just what you need to tackle that next chapter.


5.  The Lord wants to reveal Himself through your story. Above all. We sometimes forget that this isn’t actually all about us. Or even our children. It’s about the Author and what He’s doing in us and through us.


You only have to let Him shine.
Yep. Let Him shine through your weaknesses, your set-backs, and even your mistakes.
And isn’t it reassuring to realize that this whole thing doesn’t depend on us, but on Him who is more than able?


So I guess we know how this story is going to end after all.


Because we know Him.


And He’s the Real Story.

A Bully's Dream: How I Overcame and How You Can Too! by Nick Vujicic

A Bully's Dream: How I Overcame and How You Can Too!A Bully's Dream: How I Overcame and How You Can Too! by Nick Vujicic
My rating: 5 of 5 stars



I just LOVE Nick Vujicic, he is an awesome inspiration.



I loved reading this book about standing strong and ways to overcome bullying.

We know today there is a bullying epidemic going on and we need to help kids to understand this is not cool or acceptable period!
Schools and etc. need to make stricter rules and punishments for bullies.
In this book Nick talks about how he had dealt with bullying his whole life and how he deals with the issue and in his book he gives advice on how to:



Turn being bullied into a great opportunity
Create a safety zone within yourself
Establish strong values that no bully can shake
Deal with cyber bullies
Develop a spiritual foundation to stay strong against bullying
Monitor your emotions and control your response to them
Help others who are being bullied



I have 4 kids and they know better than to bully anyone and what the outcome would be if they did.


I suggest all parents purchase this book for all your children to read. I will be making sure my children do.



** Remember no bully can define who you are **
** The Lord made you in his own image and He never makes mistakes and He loves you **

My rating: 5 of 5 stars





LOVED, LOVED, LOVED THIS BOOK!!!
I was just amazed with this book! The Whole Hearted Wife is an exceptional read.
I wish I would of had this book 25 years ago when I first got married!
I had a very hard time understanding my husband, how to manage conflict, and my biggest was forgiveness.

In this wonderful biblically based book the Smalley's have covered these topics and much more.
Erin, Greg, & Gary talk about topics in this book from:
How to influence your husband
Transform any marriage situation for the better
Experience the marriage you always wanted
Infuse your marriage with vitality
Rekindle your passion
Pursue dreams for you and your husband

I would recommend this book for newly weds to seasoned couples.
