Blog Tour - Choosing Charity



I'm excited to be today's stop for the Choosing Charity blog tour!

Kit Matthews Bridger is loving her life. She just recently got married to the love of her life, Adam Bridger, she's graduated and is working for a CPA. She's not sure that she's seeing her husband enough and she's still getting used to her parents being divorced. Things are pretty great all the way around and then one day she gets a letter in the mail from an attorney. She knows that nothing good ever comes from attorneys offices in the mail but reluctantly opens it to find a request from a woman claiming to be her biological mother to get DNA tested to see if they really are related. This is kind of exciting/scary for Kit, mainly because as a newborn she was thrown away by her biological mother. Kit has always wondered why and hardly dares to hope she might now find out the reason. She's tested and it's determined that she is the daughter of Alicia, who now wants to meet Kit. She knows that her "real" parents are the Matthews, but also knows that part of her is missing, so she determines to go. Unfortunately things don't work out as we would want them to and Alicia is aloof and rude to Kit, so Kit decides she wants nothing more to do with her and walks out, but the request Alicia made haunts her and Kit knows she needs to pray about it. Will Kit be able to act on the answer to her prayer even if it means having Alicia in her life permanently?

I loved this book, it was my favorite books of the three. Kit seemed like a real person that I "know" and she had challenges that any person could have. I loved how the whole tone of the book was forgiveness, for yourself and for others. I loved the ending, it made me cry. 

Author Bio: Terri Ferran grew up in a small Colorado town that offered little in the way of entertainment. She escaped through reading (and later on a Continental Trailways bus), and although the town didn't have a library, she eagerly anticipated the coming of the Bookmobile and would check out stacks of books at a time.

She moved to Utah as a high school senior where she joined the LDS Church and met her husband, Tod. She dreamed of being a writer but took the safe route of becoming a CPA. She finally got brave enough to quit working in the world of numbers to pursue her dream of writing and also to spend more time with her children. Her first book, Finding Faith was published in 2007 and she is excited to be living her dream of writing in real life.

Terri still loves to read, but she can usually be found writing, doing laundry, dishes, running errands, napping, eating chocolate, or exercising (not necessarily in that order).

  1. Thanks for your review! I'm really enjoying following this blog tour. I've found several new great blogs to follow -- the only problem with that is it will undoubtedly mean my TBR list will continue to grow out of control. :)

Deseret Bookshelf Plus Review

I'm super excited to be able to tell you about Deseret Bookshelf's newest feature, Plus. I actually first heard about plus coming six months ago at Deseret Book's ladies night. I thought it sounded pretty great and now that I've tried it, I think it's even better than it sounded. It's basically a subscription that you add on top of the Deseret Bookshelf App. If you have Deseret Book's Platinum membership, you pay only $6.99 a month or $69 a year. If you don't it's $9.99 a month or $99 a year. Either way that's a really good deal for what you are going to be getting.

Here's the deal. With plus, you get to listen to all of their audiobooks...for FREE! Something I noticed on this is that you get to listen to even the newest books that are just barely in the store for FREE. I love this! Who has the time to run to the store to grab the book the very day it comes out? Not me, I'm too busy chasing kids around to do that!

Not to mention - have you…

SeaQuest Aquarium Giveaway

For this week's Friday Favorite (I know...it's only Wednesday!) I want to tell you about something new that I got to try out just last week. It's the SeaQuest Aquarium located in the Layton Hills Mall in Layton. 




This is a pretty new thing, it actually just opened in November. It's new, it's beautiful and there really is nothing like it located in Davis County. And actually, the way that it's been set up there isn't a whole lot like it out there. You see, it's not just an aquarium, it's really an interactive experience. There are only a few exhibits in the whole aquarium that have animals in them that you can't/shouldn't interact with. Those exhibits have high walls on them so you really can't interact with them anyway. Everything else has low walls. You can touch, feed, examine pretty much anything you see here. That makes it so much more than an aquarium.

I love the way it's set up in areas. Each of the rooms has a different and fun …

Blog Tour - Sweet is the Work

About the book: Young Women serving as missionaries today are carrying on a noble legacy of faith and dedication that extends back to the early days of the Church. But who were the brave women who paved the way for modern-day sister missionaries? In Sweet Is the Work, author Breanna Olaveson delves into a previously unexplored history that demonstrates the unique ability of women to carry out the errand of angels. Discover the powerful experiences of twelve of the earliest sister missionaries, from the first single proselytizing women in 1898 to some of the well-known sisters in Church history who were themselves pioneering missionaries. The women highlighted in this volume demonstrate the valiant and noble history of sister missionaries in an account that is sure to inspire readers to boldly go forth to share the truths of the gospel.

My review: Here's another great non-fiction book for women to read! I was fascinated by the accounts of some of the first female missionaries includ…
