Book Review: Raising God-First Kids In A Me-First World

Book Review: Raising God-First Kids In A Me-First World

  This book appealed to me instantly. From the very introduction the author present the reasoning behind her book, and the humility that almost prevented her from writing it in the first place. Barbara Curtis’ style is open, warm and engaging and never takes on a holier-than-thou tone. In fact, as she shares her own […]

Book Review: We'll Never Tell Them

Book Review: We’ll Never Tell Them

     This haunting and yet uplifting novel is much more than it seems. It spans a period of close to a hundred years, in places including colonial Malta and Edwardian England, and quietly constructs a character driven plot that steadily builds in intensity. The characters, especially Liljana, are tangibly real. Each of them is […]

Book Review - Rooted In Love

Book Review – Rooted In Love

Donna-Marie Cooper O’Boyle is a familiar name in Catholic circles. She is a bestselling author, a popular EWTN television and radio host and called Mother Teresa a friend. Her own life story is incredibly inspiring and every time she brings out a new book I have to admit that I get more than a little […]

BOOK  REVIEW ~ “Men, Women and the Mystery of Love: Practical Insights from John Paul II’s Love and Responsibility”

BOOK REVIEW ~ “Men, Women and the Mystery of Love: Practical Insights from John Paul II’s Love and Responsibility”

  I was excited about reading this book, seeing it praised one day on my Facebook news feed. Anytime I have read or heard anything by Pope John Paul II I have had my mind blown! What an insightful, intelligent, Christ like man he was. I have so much admiration for him. This book works […]

Book Review: "Holiness For Housewives: And Other Working Women"  ~ Hubert Van Zeller

Book Review: “Holiness For Housewives: And Other Working Women” ~ Hubert Van Zeller

——————————– I knew I was going to like this book as soon as I read the title “Holiness For Housewives: And Other Working Women”. Zeller chose to say other, which gave me confidence that he understood that although being a housewife and stay at home mum may not be a paid job, it is WORK. […]

Book Review: Momnipotent

Book Review: Momnipotent

From the first few pages to the end, this book was an engaging read. Danielle Bean, in a manner that reads like a chat with a close girlfriend, sets out to encourage and lift up mums who, though they love their kids and husbands, can often end up feeling exhausted, burned out, disillusioned and doubtful […]

Book Review: Choosing Joy ~ Dan Lord

Book Review: Choosing Joy ~ Dan Lord

  Choosing Joy really surprised me. I didn’t know what to expect reading a book about joy.  It was conversational and easy to read. It kept me interested the whole way through with entertaining stories and comments that literally had me “laughing out loud”. Lord had a down to earth approach, he didn’t claim to be […]

Book Review: The Privilege Of Being A Woman

Book Review: The Privilege Of Being A Woman

This is one of those books I believe every woman has to read! What I love about this book, is that it questions the very foundations of “feminism” and really shines a light on how secular feminists are doing the very opposite of what feminism claims to do, being pro-women. Alice turns their arguments completely […]

Book Review: "My Sisters The Saints" ~ Colleen Carroll Campbell

Book Review: “My Sisters The Saints” ~ Colleen Carroll Campbell

My Sister’s the Saints as an enjoyable read. Campbell doesn’t hold anything back. Recounting her faith journey from her college years into her career, marriage and family life she accurately records her experiences. I felt as though I was reading her diary, she managed to capture the passion and emotions she felt in those moments, its […]

This book, which is written by the same couple who gave us The Temperament God gave you and the Temperament God gave your spouse, is a well-written and easily accessible read. The information on the temperaments is easy to follow and set out in a logical progression which helps parents to recognise their children’s temperaments […]
