Favorite Friday - Love, Kennedy

For this week's Favorite Friday post, I want to tell you about something special I got to do just the other day. I got to go to a movie premier of a movie you are going to want to go see when it comes out next week. The movie is called Love, Kennedy and it's such a special movie.



Here's a little bit about the movie: LOVE, KENNEDY tells the inspirational true story of Kennedy Hansen, a funny, loving young woman whose health suddenly begins to fail. It takes years to find the cause – Juvenile Batten Disease – an extremely rare, horrible and inevitably terminal diagnosis. After living only 16 short years, Kennedy leaves behind an incredible legacy of love and friendship. But her story doesn’t end with her passing, it’s only then the true miracles really begin. LOVE, KENNEDY stars Jasen Wade (17 MIRACLES, THE COKEVILLE MIRACLE) as Jason Hansen, Heather Beers (CHARLY) as Heather Hansen, and Tatum Chiniquy as Kennedy.





What I thought: I loved everything about this movie. I loved th…

Carve Me a Melody

About the book: World War II has ended but the scars of the war have carved deep grooves in Sophie Wright’s heart. Now a widow with two young children, she returns home to Aspen Falls and meets Leland Halverson, a handsome carpenter who appears interested in her, but afraid of a relationship. 

Leland wishes he was worthy of the beautiful Sophie, and he adores her two children, but his past still haunts him. Sophie knows that Leland fell apart after his little girl died and his wife left him, but she doesn’t know the real reason why.

Meanwhile, David Alexander, a decorated bomber pilot has returned to Aspen Falls, and Sophie catches his eye. Confused by the two vastly different choices of men, Sophie searches for answers from a heart that has betrayed her before.

When Sophie discovers a message inside a music box that Leland once owned, the pieces start to fit together. The enchanting melody urges her to share the secrets of her heart so that she can understand his. Leland knows the tune …

Blog Tour - J Golden Kimball

About the book: He is J. Golden Kimball, and when he is gone, there will never be another. He was the original product, and when Providence had finished him, the pattern was lost and never found again.

LDS Church history is comprised of the accounts of multitudes of men and women who set the groundwork for the Church. And while there are plenty of ordinary individuals woven into that patchwork of history, there are also a handful of unique individuals who enliven the past and provide inspiration for the future. Known as the “swearing Apostle,” J. Golden Kimball is just such a character, one whose legacy of colorful language is surpassed only by his fierce loyalty to the gospel.

In J. Golden Kimball: The Remarkable Man Behind the Colorful Stories, readers are invited to come to better know this legendary man made famous by his unique humor and powerful testimony. From a chronicle of Kimball’s youthful adventures to the legacy he forged in his more than forty years as a General Authority,…

Love in Return

About the book: Thanksgiving was always Kayla’s favorite holiday—until her husband decided to leave her on the very day they should have been celebrating being together as a family. Two years later, the pain still isn’t gone, and while her family does their best to set her up, she’s perfectly happy raising her three children on her own. 

When Andrew admits he’s never really been in to Thanksgiving, his good friend Josh invites him to come to his family dinner. Andrew wasn’t expecting to be welcomed with such open arms, and he especially didn’t expect to meet Josh’s beautiful sister Kayla. 

While Kayla and Andrew hit it off immediately, Kayla still can’t bring herself to admit that she might be falling for someone new. Can Andrew prove that he’ll treat her right, or will she push away the man willing to heal her broken heart?

My review: This was a cute novella, I loved the cute plot and the characters.

Kayla is a single mom, trying to make everything work out for the best. She's even g…

I know I've already posted this review, but I was so excited to let you know that this book has now been added to Deseret Bookshelf Plus as an audio book. That means that if you have Bookshelf Plus, you can listen to Sheri Dew read this book herself, for FREE! And you can still try Deseret Bookshelf Plus for FREE for 30 days! What a great deal and so much fun!


About the book: Why can’t I seem to conquer weaknesses that plague me?” “How do I know if I’m receiving revelation?” “Will the Lord forgive me after what I’ve done?” “Why can’t we seem to get ahead financially even though we faithfully pay our tithing?” “What if the Church’s position on gay marriage bothers me?”

Those are just a handful of the countless questions Sheri Dew has heard people ask over the years. “May I answer these questions,” she writes, “and any questions you may have, by posing a different question: Are you willing to engage in the wrestle? In an ongoing spiritual wrestle?”

In Worth the Wrestle, Sheri examines …

We don't quite know where we're going yet, but you can bet we'll get it figured out and booked right away. And if you have any tips for traveling with preschoolers, you're more than welcome to drop me a comment at the end. I think it would be fun to put together a post about traveling with kids and I'm sure you all have great ideas!

Today I want to tell you about a great company that I personally have worked with before. Get Away Today. 



Get Away Today is really well known for their Disneyland vacations, but my family hasn't attempted that one yet.
