Blog Tour - Texting Through Time: John Taylor and the Mystery Puzzle



Micah and Alicia are tired of the heat one summer's day. They decide the best way to get out of the heat is to use their dad's special phone and travel back in time to the England of John Taylor's day. Micah and Alicia have used their dad's special phone previously to learn about Brigham Young's time, but this time they are not going alone, this time their dad is going to go with them. Or is he? When they arrive in England their dad is not there. Unsure of just what happened, they are able to meet John Taylor and get to know him through key events in his life. They also gain a greater testimony of living prophets. Their dad made several changes to the phone since the last time they were able to use it, and one of those changes was to add a puzzle. Micah and Alicia must complete the puzzle on the phone to get back home. But the phone battery runs out when they are still in France,Website Micah and Alicia must find all the faith they possess to figure out a solution to charge the phone in a time when there was no electricity so they can get home and not be stuck in the past.

This was a really fun book! I love the way that Christy Monson teaches kids about faith, testimony and Prophets of the latter days. This series is engaging, entertaining and educational for kids of all ages! I learned so much myself about the Prophet John Taylor, I especially loved the scene where Micah and Alicia meet John Taylor's kids and they tell true stories about his teachings to them. I also enjoyed the Primary scene, it's pretty cool because the Sister Rogers mentioned is one of my 5th great aunts. Love this series! Can't wait for the next one.

I was sent an e-book in exchange for an honest review. The opinions in the review are all my own.

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 …

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.
