A Trusting Heart

Megan Garrett has come a long way from her high school days as a blond head cheerleader. She's learned to stop taking hair, make up and clothing advice from her mother and simply follow her heart. She's a real estate agent now, not a terribly successful one, but one who really loves homes and finding people who can also love the homes. It's time for her 10 year high school reunion and she doesn't really want to go. She knows that she will have to face her ex-fiance Dylan and his wife, her ex-best friend Taffie, and she really doesn't want to, especially not in her outfit that screams Wal-Mart special. But somehow she ends up at the hotel where the event is to be held. And the first people that she sees are, of course, Dylan and Taffie. And Dylan especially is not nice. But there is someone there to stand up for her this time, Trevor Riley, former seminary president. He surprises her by kissing her in front of everyone, and she surprises him right back by slapping his face, but deep down Megan knows that there could be something there. Trevor is rich though, something that she's never wanted to deal with again because of her family. Will Megan be able to see through his money and his controlling ways to the man underneath?

I know that I read this book back when it first came out, but I love Shannon Guymon's books and I've read them several times apiece. This book is one of my favorite love stories. It has all the elements of a great story, beautiful but hurt girl, handsome rich guy, and a great big problem to be overcome. The ending will not surprise you, but it's in how Megan and Trevor get to that ending that will be the surprise.  You really cannot go wrong with reading any of Shannon Guymon's books!

I was able to borrow this book from my local 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…
