Second Chances

Fed up with not only Hollywood's version of The Bachelor, but also the dating scene of the Huntington Beach single's ward, Louisa has decided to make her own Bachelor show, the Mormon Bachelor. It will run on the internet and hopefully make her new advertising business money and also get more business. The only problem is that the bachelor that she handpicked has just gotten himself into a relationship. It's days before filming and Louisa needs to find herself a Mormon man, hopefully handsome, likable and very free for the next few weeks. But where is she going to find him? Luckily her best friend and business partner, Molly has already done what she felt needed to be done. She's e-mailed Louisa's ex-boyfriend Nick, a handsome actor, and asked him to call Louisa. Louisa is furious, but knows she doesn't have any other choice. She must make Nick want to be The Mormon Bachelor and date 21 pretty girls, which she is able to do. But Louisa doesn't count on the jealousy that she starts feeling as she is watching Nick date those beautiful perfect girls. At first she chalks it up to tiredness from having to stay up so late editing the date footage, but soon, Louisa can't deny that she still has pretty strong feelings for Nick. Is there any way he could share those feelings, especially while dating 21 other beautiful girls?

This was such a fun book! The plot was fun, the characters were believable. I love the way that Melanie Jacobson writes a love story! I also love how I felt that I was in California as I was reading this book, something I desperately needed when I was reading it. I also loved seeing what happened to Melanie Jacobson's characters from The List. Melanie Jacobson writes some of my very favorite clean romances, check them out!

I bought this book, because I knew I would love it and I didn't want to wait to get it from the library!

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…
