Wish You Were Eyre

Megan is looking forward to her spring break, Paris with her Grandmother Gigi for Fashion Week sounds just about perfect! But Megan is going to have to get through one of the snowiest winters in recent memory first. Becca is not looking forward to her spring break, she'll be going to Mankato, Minnesota with her grandmother to see the places where the Betsy-Tacy books take place, there will be some surprises along the way for her. Cassidy is way excited to play hockey for the Lady Shawmuts, especially when she finds out her team will be playing at the National Championships. Jess is nervous to be trying out for a solo in her singing group Madrigals, but she'll have to make it through the Calculus substitute first. And Emma, Emma and Stewart are helping Mrs. Wong in her run for Mayor of the town of Concord, but things get a little sticky along the way because of Sophie. Sophie is an exchange student from Paris, she gets stuck without a family until Gigi insists that she stay with the Wongs. Unfortunately for Sophie, she happens to be Stinkerbelle's cousin and the girls of the Mother-Daughter Book Club judge her for that, I think they would have over-looked that if it hadn't seemed as though Sophie was after every boy in Concord, especially Emma's boyfriend Stewart. But when a prank goes too far, the girls must band together, tell the truth, and see if they can get Sophie to forgive them all, before it's too late.

I really have loved this series. Unfortunately this book is the last book in this series. I thought that everything was tied together in the end, but I'm going to be sad to not have Emma, Jess, Cassidy, Becca, and Megan in any more adventures. I've loved all the books they've read. This book featured Jane Eyre, and I really love the way it was featured, I can't wait to get my copy that I haven't read in ages off the shelf and read it again with new eyes. I love that this series have introduced young readers to older books like Jane Eyre. Thanks to Heather Vogel Frederick for all the great adventures of the Mother-Daughter Book Club!

This is a book our 12 year-old got for Christmas and she loved it too!

Favorite Friday - Book Launch for Piper Pepper The Garden Sprite

I like to go to book launch parties! It's really fun to be able to meet the author of a book you've enjoyed reading and be able to talk to them just a little bit. I've had a ton of fun doing that. And I've met some really AMAZING people too! 

And I also like children's books, so I'm really excited to tell you about, not only a launch party coming up in Lehi next week, but about the book that will be launching.


About the book: Meet Piper and her three toad brothers in this first book of the series as they hop and fly around Piper's Garden. Piper loves her garden, with its petunias, violets and bell peppers. What Piper has a hard time with is her three toad brothers. They set traps, eat her food and race past her and through her garden. Will Piper be able to put that all aside when her brothers need her help? Piper Pepper the Garden Sprite is set in beautiful Alberta, Canada. With the Rockies and vast prairies as the backdrop, Piper helps us to see the sometime…

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 …

Worth the Wrestle

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 the process of asking good questions—whether those questions be doctrinal, procedural, historical, or intensely personal—and learning how to get answers. She demonstrates how to live by faith while seeking greater light and knowledge. And she testifies of principles that are worth wrestling for and of understanding that can be gained in no other way.

My review: Wow…
