Blog Tour - Table Talk



I'm glad to have the chance today to talk a little about the book Table Talk by John and Tina Bushman. Our family has worked hard to make sure that we have dinner together almost every night, that being said, we sometimes have a bit of a hard time thinking of things to talk about. Sometimes we end up just hurrying to eat and not really saying anything at all. I like this book for that. It's set up as a bunch of questions and quotes meant to get families talking around the dinner table. There are fun questions, political questions to get the kids thinking about politics, questions about values, and faith. I liked the way that there was a question or several questions on a page and then a quote that went along with it. This book would also be a great resource if you were going to be spending a lot of time in a car and wanted to have some conversations with your family.




About the Authors: JOHN & TINA BUSHMAN find their greatest joy in spending time together as a family. They are the proud parents of five wonderful children. The most rewarding moments in their family life are watching their children learn, discover and grow, whether it’s in a formal setting, around the table, in the car, or on an outing. John and Tina grew up in Arizona and both attended Arizona State University, where they met and started their happily ever after.


John has a Bachelor’s degree in Psychology, a Master’s Degree in Instructional Technology and has been an educator and speaker for over 15 years with youth and young adults. John has also written the book Impractical Grace. Tina studied Physics and Secondary Education but left that season for a better one. She loves her stay at home status and enjoys creating and capturing fun times with her children. The Bushmans now live in beautiful Washington State where there are field trips just around the corner.

I was sent an e-copy of this book in exchange for an honest review.

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…
