Being a mom is the hardest thing I've ever done, but it has brought me so much joy! I want to encourage other moms on their journey, I'll share motherhood tricks, spotlight tips I've learned from friends, and I hope you will share your ideas. I will focus on secrets that help families stay balanced, healthy, frugal, creative, and closely knit. I will also share favorite fiction and nonfiction books that I have enjoyed.

Book Review: Six Hours One Friday by Max Lucado

I thoroughly enjoyed reading Max Lucado's new book, Six Hours One Friday.

Lucado has divided the chapters into three "Anchor Points"m which parallel the most common struggles with our life purpose:
"My Life Is Not Futile",
"My Failures Our Not Fatal", and
"My Death Is Not Final".

He uses modern stories, modern re-tellings of Bible stories, and scripture to explore each of the anchor points.  I was particularly captivated by the modern re-tellings of scripture, including Adam & Eve, Jarius, and the prodigal son.

It ends with a Study Guide for each chapter, which is filled with thought-provoking questions, scriptures, and application points.

This book would be great for personal reading, reading as a couple, or reading in a small group.

I received a free copy of this book from Thomas Nelson Publisher's Booksneeze review program in exchange for an honest review.
