FinishYear Update

I haven't been very good at blogging lately. Sometimes its hard to express what I have to say. Sometimes I just don't really have anything to say. Here's a quick update on how I am doing with my 2012 goals:

1. Read through the Bible: I've really dropped the ball on this one. I need someone to get in my face about this one and really hold me accountable. Hopefully I can do better on this one and get caught up. I just did catch me up and I am on day 29. So I'm technically only 2 days behind, but I started 4 days ahead. This isn't good. I'm gonna make a mini-goal to be caught up by this time next week.

2. Start a Creative Venture to Help Others: This is still in the works. I am working with a friend to organize this and I have also started telling my friends about it. When I have more firm details I will definitely be letting you know!

3. Keep the house clean: I have been doing pretty good on this one this year. There is always more that can be done. I slacked some last week, because I deep cleaned last weekend for a girls night. I need to get back on track and start cleaning nightly this week.

4. Read two Books a month and Blog about them: So if you've been reading this blog this month, you know I haven't done this. I did finish one book and I will work on a blog for it. I hope I can have it ready for Thursday.

5. Blog at least 5 times a week. January had 4.5 weeks which means that I should have blogged roughly 22 times. I blogged 14 when you count this one. I didn't quite reach this goal (see item #1). I think I mentioned that if I blog 5 times a week for 52 weeks it is 260 blog posts. So I can still catch up on this one.

  1. Are you using a Bible plan, or a specific Bible? I did the NLT Bible in a Year a few years ago and really enjoyed it. I think the NLT is a good translation for daily-plan reading because it's more down-to-earth.

    1. I am using a You Version plan on my phone. I am using the TNIV version but I do love the NLT version of the Bible. I get so much more out of it because I can understand it better.

Rugosa: A Survival Story from Omaha to London by Creek Stewart

Creek Stewart of "Fat Guys in the Woods" fame released his first novel, Rugosa: A Survival Story from Omaha to London, on February 14. I just finished it and I was very impressed. 

Omaha is a boy scout and since the loss of his father the entire world has been turned upside down. Now he finds that one of the people nearest to him in life, London, is in trouble and he has to risk everything to save her.

Will be able to make it to her in time? Will she even be alive when he gets there? What kind of danger will he face on the way there? 

Find out the answers by reading the book. (What'd you think I was going to say?)

I really did enjoy this book. It was a gripping story and only took me three sittings to get it finished. A lot of the plot hits closer to home than I would like. An added bonus was some of the survival skills that I picked up along the way. 

I could really relate to Omaha as a character. He is a quiet person that prefers the outdoors to being around people. While b…

Cruel Harvest by Frances Elizabeth Grubb

My latest BookSneeze selection is the book Cruel Harvest by Frances Elizabeth Grubb. The story is Mrs. Grubb’s memoir of her life growing up with an abusive father. This was a hard book to read. I’ve always had a very tender spot in my heart for children that have to endure abuse. I never had to and am so thankful to my Heavenly Father for his grace in my life. Mrs. Grubb’s story was shocking, appalling and full of hope.

Her journey led her all over the country and down many dark paths. There were times of light in her life though that made all the difference to her story. Most interesting to me was how she overcame what could have made her a hard person and was still a seemingly kind and loving woman.

My heart broke over and over again as I read her story. There were times that it seemed she had escaped only to be trapped again. It was amazing to read about her tenacity and endurance for something that would have likely killed if not the body, the soul of most people. My life e…

Life and Other Near Death Experiences by Camille Pagan

Libby's entire life was turned on its head in a matter of hours one cold Chicago day. How she reacts will redefine how she lives and will change the rest of her life.

I sincerely loved this book. I was hooked from the first paragraph. Despite what could be considered an outrageous plot, I found it believable and relatable. I definitely recommend it though, there are some things that could be considered triggers for some readers so avoid it if you are sensitive about cancer, losing a parent or divorce. 

Pagán's writing was refreshing and real. I think what I loved most was the epilogue that actually wrapped up the story, without putting it in a box with a bow on it.

Since I didn't receive a free copy of this book I am linking to it here for you to purchase on Amazon. This is an affiliate link, which means that I will get a small part of the profits: Life and Other Near Death Experiences by Camille Pagan.
