Pride and Precipitation

Breezy Jones is the meteorologist on the local television station in Aspen Grove, California. She is very passionate about the weather, it's all she's ever wanted to do. She's even won awards for the accuracy of her forecasts. So when the station is sold she's not at all concerned about her job, she's excited to be able to make some changes. Unfortunately, the new station manager, Noah Drake, has earned the nickname of One Man Firing Squad, which he tends to live up to. There are only a few changes he's planning on making at this station and Breezy is one of them. She ends up demoted to a position that barely uses her degrees in meteorology in favor of a diva who doesn't dress at all modestly, mainly because of her wholesome Pollyanna image. She also gives Noah a nickname of her own, Drake the Snake. But when her mom insists that she be kind to Noah and even invites him to Sunday dinner, Breezy realizes that if the situation were different she could fall in love with Noah, and quickly becomes uncertain of her feelings for him. Can Breezy look beyond his position to see the man underneath?

This is a fun story. I loved the characters, sunny Breezy and Noah. I really enjoyed the mixed-up-edness of the situation. I really, really enjoyed the scene where Noah takes her to the beauty salon. I also love that it's clean, light-hearted and romantic. And of course, the Chick Flick Click girls were all awesome. I can't wait to read more of this series.

I borrowed this book from my sister-in-law who bought the Kindle version, which is only $.99 on Amazon. Check it out!

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…
