Review: Room on the Porch Swing

#NetGalleypartner

        `Room on the Porch Swing` is an Amish romance novel by author Amy Clipston. Allen Lambert's wife has passed away, after being violently sick, and he is left with their new baby, Mollie, to raise by himself.

        Laura Riehl is a friend of the Lambert's so she tries to help take care of Mollie. Laura's beau is jealous of Allen because  Laura spends most of her time at Allen's house taking care of Mollie. Would jealous feelings break a good friendship?

        This is a novel that pulled me in with its twists and turns. It is a novel of family and friendship. There were several Amish words, but if you read it in context they are easy to understand and don't take away from the novel.

I recommend this novel to fans of the Amish.

Welcome to Wednesday Hodgepodge.
Joyce asks the questions, we answer.

1. The last place you visited/patronized where you felt like you were given 'the royal treatment'?

I was given the royal treatment Mother's Day week. My son fixed supper and washed dishes each day for a week. We had leftovers on the weekend, so I didn't begin cooking until the Monday after Mother's day. 

2. The last task you completed that was a 'royal pain'?

Washing dishes..I have degenerative disk disease so standing at the sink to wash dishes is usually painful. I usually have to sit down half way through to take the tension off my back.

3. How have your strengths helped you succeed? How have your faults hindered you?

Not sure how to answer this so I'll leave it alone.

4. If you found a remote that could rewind, fast forward, stop and start time, what would you do with it?

I would rewind my life, and knowing what I know now, I would do things differently. 

5. Any special plans for the Memori…

Review: My Father's Business

#Hachettepartner

        `My Father's Business` is a first-hand account of author Cal Turner, Jr., Cal Turner, Sr. and Luther Turner by former CEO of Dollar General, Cal Turner, Jr. It's about Cal's journey of self-discovery and by sharing what he has learned he can teach readers how to flourish and work together for the good of organizations, communities, and our world.

        Cal's grandfather, Luther Turner, became a dedicated student of life with only a third-grade education. He valued other people's information, insight, and perspective. He opened their first store, Turner's Bargain Store with a third-grade education and a monthly income of just $225. Cal, Sr. went to Vanderbilt University with only an eighth-grade education. This shows the dedication of the family.

        When Cal, Sr. sold his wares for only $1 he was told it would never work. So he started with the store that had already failed as a Junior Department store in Springfield, Kentucky. T…

Review: CSB The Study Bible for Women

#BHpartner


        `The Study Bible for Women` has articles that help a woman understand Biblical womanhood. There are lots of tools for the woman of the Word. There are over 500 word studies, footnotes, 25 color-full maps, answers to the hard questions (ex. Is it ever right to take revenge?), timelines, and more. I like that there are two attached ribbons to easily flip from one piece of scripture to another without losing your place.

        This durable Bible would make a great gift for a young bride because there is a place to write the family tree for the wife and the husband, The Ketubah marriage contract with a place for the bride to record her own Ketubah contract, a place to write family milestones with date/location and description, plus a place to write names of her spiritual mothers, along with their spiritual gifts, and scripture passage.

        I think one of the best features is the character profiles, listed in alphabetical order. Ex. Abigail: An Intelligent Beauty, …
