What is a Temple?

About the book: Introduce your children to the spirit of the temple! Each page details a different attribute of the temple so young readers can understand its purpose in our lives. By teaching children about Heavenly Father s house now, this book will help them prepare to enter the temple someday and enjoy the spirit of our Father s house.

My review: I enjoyed reading this cute picture book to our 2 year old. I loved the simple way things were explained in this book. Each page talking about the way that the Temple is a House of God in a way that children will be able to understand.

And I really loved the illustrations. They are fun, cute and easy to understand for young children as well.

If you're looking for an easy way to explain the Temple to your children, no need to look any further!

I was sent a copy of this book in exchange for an honest review.

About the authorBRIANA KIRKWOOD WRIGHT started writing poetry and short stories as a creative outlet at the age of eight.  Later, she followed that passion and studied literature in English at the University of California, San Diego, graduating with a bachelor of arts degree.  A convert to The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-Day Saints, Briana feels What Is a Temple? is the result of an impression she received during the October 2013 general conference.  She hopes it will help her share a love of the temple with her sons, Anthony and Conrad.  Briana currently lives with her family in Foster City, California.  Connect with Briana at www.brianakwright.com.


About the illustratorFor EMILY BURNETTE, creating art has always been an essential part of her life. Beginning at an early age, she would sit at a red folding table in her kitchen and paint masterpieces with her two younger sisters while her mom prepared dinner.  As she grew older, she spent long summer days exploring the sage hills of the peaceful Wenatchee Valley and drawing for endless hours.  Not much has changed.  Emily still paints pictures at her own kitchen table and loves to be outdoors amongst her Savior's creations, although now she gets to experience the magic of wooly bear caterpillars and playing in the ocean's waves through the eyes of her two young sons, Michael and Jack. Nature and the innocence of childhood are constant sources of inspiration for Emily's work.  As a self-taught artist, she has developed a unique illustrative style, blending colored pencils and watercolors to create her art.  Emily and her incredibly supportive husband, John, live with their two boys in Seattle, Washington.  Visit her at www.emilyburnette.blogspot.com.

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…
