In Due Time Devotional | Book Review

We are all waiting on something! 

Have you ever had a time in your life where you needed to trust in God and His timing, but it just seemed too hard?  Have you ever tried to make something work on your timing, not His, and it just didn’t work?  Have you ever been so defeated that you were ready to give up?  I have!  When you are going through trials and struggles it can be hard to remember to put your trust in God, but that is all we can do.  Trust in Him and His timing, His will and His way.

The Magnolia Story | Book Review

The Magnolia Story is a fabulous read, especially if you are an HGTV Fixer Upper fan! CAUTION: If you’re not a fan… you will be once you finish reading this book!  How often do you pick up a biography and not want to put it down?!… Not often for me, but this book was the exception! The Magnolia Story is written in a very sweet manor by Joanna Gaines with cute inserts from her hilariously corky husband, Chip Gaines.  It is so much fun hearing all about their love story, the growth of their family and how they came to be the well known Fixer Uppers.  I loved the transparency as they mixed in their real-life faith and struggles along their journey.  As you relive their life choices and adventures along with them, you can’t help but fall in love with them, and I routinely caught myself smiling as I was reading!  Their hugely generous hearts wrap you up and you find yourself rooting for them more and more with every page turn.

I love giving gifts!!!
