Chasing the Prophecy (Beyonders #3)

Jason and Rachel both know that more fighting is soon to come for them in Lyrian, but they're both enjoying the peaceful winter spent in learning more Edomic for Rachel and watching white gibbons fight for Jason. Both know just where they will be going to fulfill their own parts of the prophecy by the Oracle. Rachel will be going with Galloran back to Trensicourt to rally the country for the final fight with Maldor. Jason on the other hand is headed to Windbreak Island to the Celestine Library. His group needs to find out the final location of Darian the Pyromancer, hopefully he holds the key for the final defeat of Maldor. Both groups know that their actual chances of defeating Maldor are slim, but they both know that they must try in order for Lyrians everywhere to be able to live free lives. These journeys will take both groups through danger, fighting, and traitors, but will they also take the groups to a victory over Maldor?

Make sure you read these books in order or you will be really confused!

I'm really sad to have this be the last book in the Beyonders series. I've really enjoyed reading about Jason, Rachel and the rest of their friends from Lyrian. I love the action and adventure in this series. I love the characters. Brandon Mull is a master at making these made up worlds of his seem real enough to jump from the pages of his books. I love that you are able to really get to know the characters through the series, these books have some really fun characters. These books are perfect for anyone loving a great adventure story!

I was able to borrow this book from my local library, but I did have to fight my tweenage daughter for a chance to read it!

Blog Tour - Stu Stories: The Adventures of Dirt Clod and His Sidekick Bird Bones

About the book: Stu Sanderson is no ordinary eighth-grader. Not only is he seven feet tall, but he also vanishes into thin air, duels knights and ninjas, lifts the downtrodden, and woos the best-calved girl in school. Become a middle-grade legend with Stu and his sidekick, Bird Bones, on the journey of a lifetime in “Stu Stories.”

My review: This is a fun book written for middle grade boys. It doesn't seem as though there are all that many written for this group, so I always enjoy seeing new ones. 

I liked the way this one is written. Stu is who the book is about, but the way it's written is through the eyes of his friend, Bird Bones. That makes the things that happen to Stu even more funny because you don't know how the things happened. 

This book reminded me a little bit of "Sideways Stories from Wayside School," because it's a collection of several stories that kind of fit together to make a whole story, but they also stand on their own. I thought the stories…

Favorite Friday - Relative Race

Our family doesn't watch very much TV at all. Most of what we watch airs on BYUTV. We are big Studio C fans at our house. And this show, Relative Race is one of our very favorites. We recently re-watched the whole first season because the second season starts on Sunday and we couldn't wait! 

This show is a reality type show. There are 4 couples who start on one side of the country and race to the other side, meeting new relatives along the way. Last season they took their cell phones away very first thing and they had to use paper maps to get where they needed to go, which was sometimes a problem for all of the contestants. Anyway, each team is given a specific city to go to. They have to make it to the city, then take and send a selfie with a city sign. Once that happens they get a challenge to complete and then they are given their relative's address. Then...they have to spend the night with their relatives, which seems to me like it could be very awkward! But last season…

Changed Through His Grace

About the book: "Have you been changed by grace?" In this insightful book, Brad Wilcox explores this life-altering question in depth. Christians throughout the centuries have used grace to describe God's favor, goodwill, and love. However, grace is more than a description of God's attributes. It is the help, power, and strength He offers as we choose to engage with Him in striving to attain those attributes. It is the help, power, and strength He offers as we choose to engage with Him in striving to attain those attributes. Grace is different from the Atonement. It is not Christ's suffering, death, and Resurrection. Rather, grace is the power that flows from those sacred moments. Grace is not a priesthood ordinance, but essential ordinances invite greater and greater endowments of grace into our lives. Grace is a divine gift, but like any gift, it must be received.

In this book, Brother Wilcox uses real-life stories and personal experiences to demonstrate how we c…
