Dinosaur Devotions {Review}


This 75 devotional guide combines a love for dinosaurs with spiritual truths.  Each two-page spread includes dinosaur stats and name, a short devotional, questions for digging deeper, and even a journaling prompt.  Plus a scripture verse for the basis of the devotional and a fun trivia fact.  Some dinosaur species were repeated, but I actually liked that because it reinforced the factual information.  The devotionals are age applicable, thought provoking without being too deep, and of interest to ages 8-12.  This is a great devotional for transitioning from the younger years to the teens.  Geared at that middle age when dinosaurs and science are of high interest, Dinosaur Devotions is a fun way to engage your children in spiritual discussions and keep them growing.

The Christmas Remedy {Review}

The Christmas Remedy: An Amish Christmas Romance  -     By: Cindy Woodsmall, Erin Woodsmall


Holly Zook lives an unusual life... that is, if your Amish.  Holly is unmarried, pursuing higher education, and works at a locally owned pharmacy.  After her father died, Holly dedicated herself to helping the Plains community through health management and disease prevention.  Her greatest joy is teaching her people how to live healthy lives and avoid her father's fate.  

When pharmacist, Lyle Greene, suffers a stroke, his son Brandon returns home to help in the family business.  Studying to be a pharmacist himself, Brandon wants nothing to do with Green's Pharmacy. After watching his parents struggle and feeling displaced by his father's affections for Holly, Brandon is determined that his time at home will be brief.  Till one day a horrible accusation leaves Holly and Brandon fighting for the future of Green's Pharmacy.  What really happened the day of Lyle's stroke? And who is behind these painful accusations?

I've been a big fan of Cindy Woodsmall for a long time and this is the second book that I've read where she's teamed up with her daughter in law, Erin Woodsmall.  Both women have a way of story telling that really draws in the reader.  While I had my suspicions about who was behind all the pharmacies troubles, the resolution wasn't too obvious and in fact, left me guessing for quite awhile.  There were also two romantic storylines woven through out the book, but it might not be who you'd expect at first.  And although the book toggles between different viewpoints, the authors do a good job of developing each "voice" so as not to confuse the reader.

This was a sweet book to delight readers and fan during the holiday season.  Perfect for curling up with a hot cup of tea, and remembering the bond of family and the magic of Christmas.
