About Me

My photo
Mysteries, polka dots, California Rolls, TJ Maxx, cozy blankets, rainy days and getting the first spoonful of peanut butter out of the jar make me smile. Spiders, rude people, cold fingers and toes, baby leashes, people that don't wrap their packages before going to the Post Office, poison ivy and Math (pretty much all of it) make me want to scream. My perfect day would be spent with my wonderful husband and sweet girls- watching movies in our jammies! Of course, having the movie theater to ourselves would be great, too. Please pass the popcorn and M&M's.:) I am saved by the grace of God. He is my constant companion and hears my every prayer. What a blessing! I'd love to hear from you!

The Biggest Story review and Giveaway!

The WINNER is Rebecca!!! Congratulations, Rebecca!!!



My Thoughts:

Kevin DeYoung and Don Clark have created an impressively written and visually remarkable journey through the Bible! The Biggest Story begins in the Garden of Even and goes alllllll the way to the Resurrection of Jesus. There are 111 pages and 10 short chapters- perfect for the wiggliest of little ones yet filled with easy to understand truth. There will be giggles and plenty of oohs and ahhs as you read this as a family, to your Sunday school class or alone with a cup of coffee as I did- the first time. I couldn't wait to share it with the little sweet peas at church!



The Biggest Story would be make a delightful gift, especially with Christmas just around the corner. It's engaging to listen to, easy to read and absolutely thrilling to look through!
