The Second Yes by Terry | Verde | Bridgeman | Havig | Tru book review and giveaway

ABOUT THE BOOK The Second Yes: Five of today’s Best-selling Christian Authors weave six brand-new, unique, interconnected stories of what happens after the bride says yes to him and yes to the dress. Something Borrowed, Someone Blue: A borrowed dress, half-completed marriage counseling, and a last-minute theft. Let’s face it. Weddings equal stress for the families involved. Preachers, however, have it easy. Or so they say. Ty Jamison’s first parishioner is getting married. Though he’s performed many services at the little chapel in New Cheltenham–grand affairs, all designed to give the illusion of simplicity–all of them were strangers to him. So when Lara Priest asks him to perform the ceremony at her wedding and to use the chapel, of course, Ty is thrilled. That joy fades as one by one, things go wrong. From a groom who refuses to attend pre-marital counseling to Lara discovering that her dream wedding dress is a no-can-do, what can go wrong seems to. And like so man

Get Pay for your Miles

A couple of days ago,  I ran into an app called SMILES. This app supposedly pays you 3 cent per mile you drive. You can only make $3.30 a day.  I have been using it for two days and have already made $6.00. It is a free app and no advertisement. Information on their app site: Earn more while you drive, up to $100 extra per month for doing what you’re already doing. We’re collecting data on driving behavior / styles to help make roads safer. We pay to watch you drive. It’s a fitbit for your car. Everything is anonymous, we just track speeding, accelerator, turns, g force All you do is install the app on your phone. Sign In and hit "Start Trip". Then when you have arrived at your destintation hit "Stop Trip". It will then tell you how much you made. If I am writing with my parents or a friend I turn the app on and still make money. I didn't find it taking alot of data or battery life of the phone. It is also a nice app to track how much miles you drive

Elton John's Rocketman Movie Review

Rocketman  takes us into the life of Elton John from when he was a little boy to when he started cleaning himself up from drugs and alcohol.  It opens with Elton John, played by Taron Egerton, storming into a AA meeting in full regalia, an orange-red sequence devil outfit with huge feather wings.  He narrates the story during his AA meeting.  Elton John's songs are used to tell throughout the film to help show the significant moments in his life. The film contains many montages: everything from John's hits rising up the charts; the concerts, headlines, fans; shopping sprees; trying on various clothing pieces such as his hats and glasses.   The real Elton John served as an executive producer and mentor to Taron Egerton on the film. He didn't really want to be on set every day because he didn't know if this would cause him to be triggered so his boyfriend made sure the film does Elton justice.   Taron Egerton blew me away. Egerton is known for his role in the act

All Things Matter by Susie Finkbeiner Book Review

ABOUT THE BOOK When Annie Jacobson's brother Mike enlists as a medic in the Army in 1967, he hands her a piece of paper with the address of their long-estranged father. If anything should happen to him in Vietnam, Mike says, Annie must let their father know.  In Mike's absence, their father returns to face tragedy at home, adding an extra measure of complication to an already tense time. As they work toward healing and pray fervently for Mike's safety overseas, letter by letter the Jacobsons must find a way to pull together as a family, regardless of past hurts. In the tumult of this time, Annie and her family grapple with the tension of holding both hope and grief in the same hand, even as they learn to turn to the One who binds the wounds of the brokenhearted. Author Susie Finkbeiner invites you into the Jacobson family's home and hearts during a time in which the chaos of the outside world touched their small community in ways they never imagined.
