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. Many blessings to you on your mothering journey!

Book Review: What's Your Mark? by Jeremy Cowart

I thoroughly enjoyed reading Cowart's new book, "What's Your Mark?  Every Moment Counts".  The book has stories and photographs of everyday people who are making their mark on the world.  Each story also asks a thought-provoking question, such as:

How are you using social media to make your mark on the world?
How can you use what you know to inspire others to make a mark?
What is a simple way that you can make a mark today?

Between the stories, you'll find the book of Mark (from the Bible), and notes on how Mark and Jesus made their marks on the world.

Finally, you'll be drawn to turn back to the cover of the book, which is a framed mirror reflecting your image.  It will beckon you to answer the question, "How does God want to use you to make a mark on the world this week and for the rest of your life?"

This would be great for a teacher's gift, a graduation gift, or an 'I admire you' gift.  I would recommend it for men and women ages 12 and older.  It would also be a great staff devotional to read before starting a workday.

It will inspire you to live out your faith in a bold and loving way.

I received this book as a gift from the publisher in exchange for my honest review.
