Just Give Me a Little Piece of Quiet

I found this book Just Give Me a Little Piece of Quiet by Lorilee Craker at a garage sale I think. I have been reading one of the "mini-retreats" each day as part of my quiet time.

This is a book for Moms. It has short two or three page chapters, each one about a different mothering topic. The stories tell a humorous story and then have a spiritual application. I enjoyed the short stories for the most part and verses to go along with them.

The Perfect Life

This week I quickly finished this book The Perfect Life by Robin Lee Hatcher. This is the story of Katherine Clarkson. She sees her life as perfect with her wonderful, good looking husband and two married, pregnant daughters. She must do a reality check though when her life is suddenly thrown into the public eye after allegations against her husband's faithfulness and financial misconduct with his organization In Step, which provides homes for those who otherwise couldn't afford it. Katherine has to do some serious soul searching and seek God to determine if she trusts her husband. She learns some valuable lessons about herself, her husband, her daughters, and God.
