Love at Last Sight

Love at Last Sight is a book written to help enhance your relationships, with main topics being: the art of being all there, the art of acting intentionally, the art of risking awkwardness, and the art of letting go. This book is intended to be read in 30 days, 1 chapter per day. Each day contains 2 quotes from famous individuals, a 5-6 page description of the theme, and a personal challenge.
Although this is a Christian book, I didn't find Christianity its primary focus. Personally, I saw this book as every other self help book for relationships on the market.

God Gave Us Two!

God Gave Us Two is a book written by Lis Bergren for children who will soon have a new sibling. It is one of many books from her polar bear series, and her other books include: God Gave Us You, God Gave Us Love, and God Gave Us Heaven. This book tells the anxious story of young polar bear as she prepares for the arrival of her brother/sister. Throughout the story, mamma and pappa bear answer little bears questions about what a new sibling will be life, but they always end by saying, "God gave us you, and now he's given us two!" They promise that they will always love little bear just the same. My favorite part is the end though...where there is a pleasant surprise.

I would highly recommend this book to all expectant parents who already have a kid.

Daddy Dates

Daddy Dates, by Greg Wright is a book written to dads, to help build strong and confident daughters. Greg writes solely based on his experience raising his 4 girls, and the success he has had with them through his “Daddy Date” strategy. He encourages Dad’s to really get to know their daughters by taking them on dates – just like that same dad use to date their mom in order to get to know her better. Greg shares his experience in how he has gotten his 4 teenage daughters to open up and share their fears, dreams and opinions with him.

This is a great book for any guy to read. It’s very eye opening in how men can better relate to any female, whether it’s a daughter, wife, girlfriend or sister. You don't have to be a dad to read, and get good advice from, this book. Greg seems to have figured girls our better than the average Joe, and his advice is great. Plus, it’s just a fun book to read. He writes with a great sense of humor, and it’s a relatively short, easy book.

Time with God for Fathers

Time with God for Fathers by Jack Countryman is a very well written, well put together book. Each page consists of passage of scripture, followed by a short devotion which relates the scripture to some aspect of being a father. It’s great for any coffee table or toilet, when you want to take a minute or two to relax and refocus on the more important things in life. His writing is both simple and challenging. Whether you are a biblical scholar or very unfamiliar with God’s word, this book will be insightful and helpful to every father. It would also make an excellent gift book for any father or father-to-be.

Time With God for Mothers

Time With God For Mothers

I received "Time with God for Mothers" just in time for Mother's Day. This 90 page gift book has a topic, scripture, and small meditation on each page, which is just perfect to read one a day. This book is very colorful and girly, which make the pages fun and inviting to look at! I am a new mom of a 7 week old and love this devotional, and I think that this book would be great for mothers of all ages! I highly recommend this book as a great gift for the mom that you love!

God Gave Us You!

God gave us you is an AWESOME children's book telling the joyful story of a mommy cub having her baby cub. I currently have a 7 week old little girl, and this book reminded me so much of my pregnancy and delivery. I can't wait to share this story with my daughter when my husband and I eventually have a second child. This book will remind your child that they are loved by you no matter what, because "God gave them to you!" I love, love, love this book and would highly recommend it to all parents!
