Review of the book Keeper of the Stars by Robin Lee Hatcher

I really enjoyed this book. It is about a woman named Penny who lives with her dad after she lost her mom and brother in two separate accidents. She ends up falling in love with this guy named Trevor and they live happily ever after. Penny is unsure of who to trust at first because she believes Trevor killed her brother. But she ends up learning the truth. And this is a really sweet story. I loved the book so much I read it all in about 3 hours and all in one day! I wanted to read this book the minute I read the description on the book site where I requested it. Sometimes you can't help who you fall in love with and that GOD works in mysterious ways and can change your life in an instant. And sometimes you think GOD is not hearing your prayers but he is and he answers it in ways you don't quite understand but it all works out in the end. I like this book because the family puts everything in the hands of GOD and uses prayers alot and trust that it all will work out in the end. She learns that its ok to grieve and move past a death and that you can't always be afraid to move on because you feel like you are supposed to not be happy after someone passes, that the quicker you move on the less you loved the person. That is further-est from the truth.

Review of the book Strong and Kind by Korie Robertson

I have to admit, this book is pretty boring and hard to get into it. It took me over a month to read it. But here is my review. I liked the quote on page on page 5 of chapter one that says " 2/3rds of those surveyed said the media is an important factor in our culture, and 68 percent said that the media's effect on the country's moral values is a negative one."I also like the quote on page 7 that says" suicide was the second leading cause of death among fifteen-to twenty-nine year-olds globally in 2012."I like the quote on page 81 that says" Joyful is not simply being happy because circumstances are pleasant of fun; it's about being deeply grateful for those circumstances and for what transpired to cause the event." This book is basically about what traits you want in your marriage and what traits you want for your children to become and how to make that happen. It was basically a parenting book using examples of what worked for Korie and Willie and how the bible helped them out and they proved that by using scriptures and then applying them. I originally got this book because I enjoy the show Duck Dynasty and enjoy watching this family on tv, it makes me laugh and helps me feel better about myself. But the book was boring because nothing really fascinated happened in the story to get your attention. I need a more faced paced book.
