New Year, New Books!

I need to revamp this blog. Last entry was in July of 2015…

I started reading YA novels and got sucked into a world of awesomeness! SOOOOO….

I signed up for OwlCrate, which according to their website is:

Every month we’ll send you a magical box tailored to a chosen YA theme (e.g. paranormal, first love, dystopia.) Each box will contain one new Young Adult novel, as well as 3-5 other bookish keepsakes to help set the mood for your literary adventure. Don’t forget to document and share your experience with others in the Owlcrate community!

P.S. Every once in awhile we may include an Adult novel that is being embraced by the YA community. You have our promise that it will always be suitable for ages 16+, and that it will be a fantastic read!

Sounds awesome right!? A new book with extra goodies included every month! Basically what I’m trying to say is that every month I will write a detailed review of my OwlCrate and I would love to have some of you discuss the monthly pick with me.

God Watches Over Me- A review

**DISCLAIMER**

I received a free copy of this book for reviewing purposes. This is my honest opinion and I’m not being compensated for my expressions.

I was looking for a cute motivational book for my two preschoolers (both girls) and I stumbled upon this beautiful Precious Moments book called: God Watches Over Me. The artwork both outside and inside the book reminded me of my childhood and the many “Precious Moments” coloring books I had. I can’t seem to find any Precious Moments things for my kids nowadays. It’s considered vintage now lol! Anyways… according to the website’s description:

Share all the ways that God watches over us with your little one!

Illustrated with the adorable Precious Moments art, this sweet little book features rhyming text about all the ways God watches over His children, helping little ones to feel safe and loved. The book takes a child through all the things that happen in a day, accompanied with a prayer, and closes with a sweet poem that reminds children that God is always watching over us, even when we sleep. Complete with scriptures and prayers, this book will be a wonderful addition to every family’s library.

Since 1978, Precious Moments has grown into an evergreen brand recognized worldwide, with more than 12.5 million books and Bibles sold through Thomas Nelson.

So adorable!

The book is filled with motivational poems for little ones, you can read it during the morning, before nap time and before bedtime. There’s actually little motivational messages that apply to different events in your little one’s life, for example: “God watches over me when I’m brave”. And the best thing… It’s a board book that looks like a regular book. It can fit easily in your diaper bag so you can take it on the go.

Intense…

Intense…

He wrote this in a letter in 1849.

I’ve never considered myself an insane person. Maybe I’m intense, but never insane… except for occasions in which my heart was touched. I’m a person that can easily forget any problems I have with anyone or anything. But one thing, the ONLY thing I can’t forget is heartbreak. That feeling when someone or something breaks your heart into a million pieces that end up scattered across the floor, and no matter how many times you try to pick those pieces up, if you’re not ready they will keep escaping through your fingers and leave nasty cuts. That feeling that you just want to cry everywhere, anywhere, you can’t control it, the grief… it just comes and goes in waves, violent waves. And after the grief you die inside. You block yourself from feeling any emotions at all. Nothing can kill you because you’re already dead. There’s no hope in planning anything because something is missing from your mind, your soul, your heart…

Slowly you start to mend the pieces, the pieces that were once so difficult to pick up are now within your reach, and you tuck them safely inside your heart and build a protective wall around it. And you bow never to succumb to another heartbreak, because you know that another one will kill you, for real. You get a hobby, a pet, whatever, anything to take your mind off those flashbacks that creep in while you’re laying in bed at night. The healing process has started. You can get up in the morning and look at that sunrise and honestly think: “Everything is gonna be alright. I’m gonna be alright.”

I’ve had my heart broken. And because of it I’ve been on the verge of madness. But I’m not insane. I’m intense.
