GRIT & grace | Suzanne Hadley Gosselin, Gretta Kennedy

 

 

Today I am reviewing GRIT & grace: Devotions for Warrior Moms by Suzanne Hadley Gosselin and Gretta Kennedy.

Here is a brief synopsis:

Hang in There, Mama!

For those moments when you think you’ll never live up to the Supermoms around you—when you’re elbow deep in the grind of diapers and laundry and peanut butter sandwiches—you need a good dose of Grit and Grace.

This refreshing collection of 90 daily devotions comes from two moms who’ve found themselves face-to-the-floor in need of encouragement and now offer it to you. Through humor and vulnerability, these short messages of truth remove the filters of perfection clouding your vision and bring clarity to your purpose as a mom.

As you read the Scripture and prayer that accompany each day’s message, you’ll discover more fully who you are in Christ and how to raise your children to reflect His love to the world.

In giving yourself grace, you will find you have even more grace to give from the One who is present in your life right now and in every moment.

 

 

MY THOUGHTS:

Grit and Grace is such an encouraging book of devotions!

By the time I finished the book, I felt as if I knew Suzanne and Gretta personally — and their families. I laughed — and cried along with them as they told their stories of love, tears, frustrations, temptations, fellowship, and grace.

. . . and I really LOVED the prayers!

Please check out GRIT & grace: Devotions for Warrior Moms… and read the words of encouragement that have helped Suzanne and Gretta through many of the difficult times we all experience.

Happy Reading!

 

Suzanne Hadley Gosselin and Gretta Kennedy first met as roommates at Multnomah University. They are quick to admit they did not like each other when they first met due to opposite personalities. However, they worked out their differences and became best friends who roomed together for all four years of college. Two decades later, during a phone conversation, they realized God was laying on their hearts the desire to write a devotional for moms of young children to encourage and strengthen them in their role as mothers. It was then the idea for Grit & Grace: Devotions for Warrior Moms was born.

The Human Complication | JC Morrows, Macy Morrows

 

 


Today I am promoting The Human Complication, the 3rd chapter book in the Tales of a Teenage Alien Human Hybrid series, by JC Morrows and Macy Morrows.

In book one, Zoe discovered her somewhat unorthodox heritage.

As if being a teenager isn’t hard enough. . .

Can you imagine how it feels to wake up one day and find out that you are not who you thought you were?

If you’re anything like me, you know it’s hard enough trying to fit in—in high school—without having to deal with the knowledge that your dad is an alien part of the time. I don’t even get how you can be an alien part of the time. . .

Not to mention all of the crazy new alien gifts you really wish you could return.

Oh well, at least I have an explanation for the blue hair.

So, not only do I get to deal with school bullies this fall, who I’m apparently not allowed to use my new abilities on, I have to keep anyone from finding out my secret. . . and keep my grades up.

Could life get any crazier!

 

In book two, Zoe was left to deal with her new abilities… all by herself.

As if I don’t have enough to deal with. . .

It’s crazy enough to find out, the hard way, that you are not who you thought you were.

But to have that kind of bombshell dropped on you, and then — to have your Dad ditch you — leaving you to figure stuff out all by yourself, with a Mom you can’t tell anything about what’s going on. . . and school enemies lurking around unexpected corners.

I mean. . . come on. It’s summer!

Between trying to keep a tight grip on my sanity, not to mention my new crazy alien powers, dealing with Ashley and her band of terrible teens, not knowing if I still have a best friend or not is just the straw I do not need to be saddled with this summer.

Is it any wonder I feel like I just might lose it any second! And if I do. . . well, keeping the secret from Mom will be the least of my problems!

 

DON’T MISS BOOK THREE!

 

 

 

God Bless You!

The Hybrid Challenge | JC Morrows, Macy Morrows

 

 


Today I am reviewing The Hybrid Challenge, the 2nd chapter book in the Tales of a Teenage Alien Human Hybrid series, by JC Morrows and Macy Morrows.

Here is a brief synopsis:

As if I don’t have enough to deal with. . .

It’s crazy enough to find out, the hard way, that you are not who you thought you were.

But to have that kind of bombshell dropped on you, and then — to have your Dad ditch you — leaving you to figure stuff out all by yourself, with a Mom you can’t tell anything about what’s going on. . . and school enemies lurking around unexpected corners.

I mean. . . come on. It’s summer!

Between trying to keep a tight grip on my sanity, not to mention my new crazy alien powers, dealing with Ashley and her band of terrible teens, not knowing if I still have a best friend or not is just the straw I do not need to be saddled with this summer.

Is it any wonder I feel like I just might lose it any second! And if I do. . . well, keeping the secret from Mom will be the least of my problems!

Book two of the Tales of a Teenage Alien Human Hybrid series.

 

 

MY THOUGHTS:

Zoe is a really cool teenager… the only thing is, she has blue hair… and just after her dad takes her on a vacation and reveals a big secret, he disappears and she’s left to figure things out on her own!

          And she can’t tell her mom!

So what happens when Zoe returns home to deal with her new life-altering secret? Especially when her best friend shows up, wanting to know what happened before Zoe left — you know, when the bedroom door kept opening and closing on its’ own.

This is such an adorable story… about a teenage-girl who gets the most surprising news — something extraordinary, and more than a bit alarming!

In this second book, Zoe’s dad has ended their vacation early and taken off for parts unknown, leaving Zoe to deal with family and friends, and new neighbors. I loved how the authors tap into what it would be like to learn that you’re half alien, plus dealing with new powers that could cause all sorts of problems. Can Zoe handle things on her own? Will her alien dad ever return?

If you are as curious as I am — pre-order your copy today so you can read the story as soon as it releases. Once you do, you’ll want to know even more (like I do) and you’ll be anticipating the return of Zoe (and her two dads) in The Human Complication, the next sequel in this fun, exciting series.

Happy Reading!

 

God Bless You!

The Alien’s Daughter | JC Morrows, Macy Morrows

 

  


Today I am reviewing The Alien’s Daughter, the 1st chapter book in the Tales of a Teenage Alien Human Hybrid series, by JC Morrows and Macy Morrows.

Here is a brief synopsis:

As if being a teenager isn’t hard enough. . .

Can you imagine how it feels to wake up one day and find out that you are not who you thought you were?

If you’re anything like me, you know it’s hard enough trying to fit in—in high school—without having to deal with the knowledge that your dad is an alien part of the time. I don’t even get how you can be an alien part of the time. . .

Could life get any crazier!

Book one of the Tales of a Teenage Alien Human Hybrid series.

 

 

MY THOUGHTS:

Zoe is a really cool character… with blue hair — and a few new strange powers that have just shown up!

And she has two dads!

Well… not really. But her dad has two very different personalities, so much so that she calls one of them Nice Dad and the other one Not-so-nice Dad.  Personally, I wish Not-so-nice Dad would take a hike!  Unfortunately, if he does, Nice Dad won’t stay around, either. Even if she wants him to…

How does Zoe learn to control her powers? What happens with her dad? Read the story and find out, like I did… and once you do, you’ll want to know more (like I do) and you’ll be anticipating the return of Zoe (and her dads) in The Hybrid Challenge.

Happy Reading!

 

God Bless You!
