7/7/15 book review…

written 1/26/14 – Partial book review. I have been reading “Mayflower” by Nathaniel Philbrick. I like history and it was on the withdrawn table at the library so it was about a dollar. I won’t need to remember to return it. Sometimes it takes me a long time to read a book. It is good book about the people that came over on the Mayflower. It starts back in Europe with the families that decided to leave for America and it gives a lot of the trials that the families went through before even leaving on their voyage. This book really puts faces and heartfelt decisions into the names of history, and gives the good and the bad of the characters. The pilgrims came over to have religious freedom and to convert the Indians and ended up taking over America from the Indians. All of the wars became too much for me. I am halfway trough the book and the wars are going on all over New England. Since I am not looking forward to reading the book, not wanting to hear about the wars any more so I am changing books. I have just started “A Confident Heart” by Renee Swope…she is with Proverbs 31 Ministry. After reading four pages it looks like a better book for me. The cover says that it is about “How to stop doubting yourself and live in the security of God’s promises”. I may go back to the Mayflower book, or read both at the same time.  What book are you reading? Would you recommend it to others?12556 12558

3/8/15 my three ”only” children…

written 12/4/13 – Years ago I read a book called “Cheaper by the Dozen” I really enjoyed the book for many reasons, but one of my favorite parts was the dedication. It said something close to “To my mom who only raised twelve kids, and to my dad who raised twelve only kids”  I thought that that was so cool. Having three kids, especially when they were young, was an adventure. They were my group. We did everything together…played, ate at the table, did homework (when William had homework the girls were allowed at the table if they wanted to do a quiet project like color). The kids and I were a unit. In many ways that was good, but as they got older they needed to be looked at as individuals. That book dedication gave me the sight to look at them differently. I started to try to spend time with each one separately, even if it was for five minutes after school to ask how their day was. We started talking about their likes and dislikes, what made them tick. It was fun to get to know them as separate people.

blog income
I have been looking for a way to bring extra cash into my family without getting a second job. I just want enough extra income to be able to pay the bills but still be able to have time to enjoy my kids. I tried a lot of web sites that offered envelope stuffing, they were all dead ends. Then I tried blogging. I figured that if enough people visited my blog then I could add advertisements and get paid. If I monetized my blog I could take the profit to help my family. I have found Blogsvertise. With them I can have advertisements on my blog, or have guest posts or have banner ads. I am still new to this.
