Dressing Your Truth- One Year Later

Hi Friends!  I can't believe it's been one year since I discovered Dressing Your Truth!  I really love this program and all that I have learned and continue to learn about myself and also how dressing in a way that enhances my true beauty on the inside. 

Why I would choose Dressing Your Truth:

*Less stress in shopping
*Enjoying life
*Feeling good on the inside and outside
*Great online store for every type
*Monthly classes and online club nights

As you can see Dressing Your Truth offers a lot of good benefits.  A friend of mine (who is a different type) has also chosen Dressing Your Truth and she looks fabulous!!  It's so fun to see how this course can bring so many different people together and there is a lot of sharing and caring too.

Right now, the Dressing Your Truth is $99!  There is also a 20% off sale at the Dressing Your Truth store as well.  So, read my story and see if Dressing Your Truth could be a choice for you.  I'm glad I chose and there is NO going back!

More Than Happy (The Wisdom of Amish Parenting) by Serena B. Miller with Paul Stutzman

More than Happy: The Wisdom of Amish Parenting by Serena B Miller with Paul Stutzman is unique look into the lives of Amish families interviewed by an Englisch (English) friend, Serena.  The author has taken great care in sharing the truths and uncertainties that Amish parents face when raising their children.  The Amish are group of Americans who choose to live without electricity, drive horse and buggy, live mostly on farms, and form strong family relationships.  They are Christian and like all communities have certain rules they follow (some more strict than others).  But above all, they love God and rear their children in a way that draws them close to God too.  As stated by the author, "It is a culture that is intentionally designed to spend time together, help each other and build a sense of purpose together.  That has a profound impact on the way they raise their children."  This book gives a glimpse into how the Amish view family, community, discipline, work, technology and faith.  And after each section, the author gives a few Amish parenting tips for the Non-Amish.

I was very fascinated in reading this book.  I lived in Pennsylvania for a few years when I was younger and I was exposed to the Amish.  I just noticed that they dressed different and drove horse and buggy.  I knew they didn't use electricity and that they lived on big farms.  In reading this book it brought me back to my memories and I also in the depths of my heart wish to live a simple life like the Amish.  Reading this book was like having a conversation with the author.  She spent a lot of time with her Amish friends and asked a lot of relevant questions that parents of today have such as why are Amish children so content?  The stories from the Amish families are interesting, endearing and a breath of fresh air.  I was encouraged and inspired to practice more the of Amish way of living.  I recommend this book for parents to gain a new perspective on how to raise children in a very ungodly world to serve and honor Jesus.

*I was given a complimentary copy of this book from Howard Books for review.  All opinions are my own.*

Team Us: Marriage Together by Ashleigh Slater Book Review + Giveaway!

Team Us: Marriage Together by Ashleigh Slater is a series of short chapters designed for couples to read together or separate that address some practical areas of life where working together as a team is imperative.  The author's easygoing writing style and true stories as a good combination for enjoyable reading.  The author includes many stories not only of her own, but others who had similar situations.  And her husband contributes several ideas from a male perspective.  Each chapter ended with some questions to discuss with your partner.

This is a quick and easy read.  I really like that Ashleigh is so real.  She doesn't paint a perfect marriage, but an attainable way to achieve teamwork within marriage through ups and downs.  She showed how working together is the right choice.  Teamwork takes effort, but is worth it.
