I am so excited to share this book review!!  I've been following GirlDefined for a few years now and have enjoyed every book they have published and have grown and been encouraged so much by their ministry.  I signed up to be apart of their launch team for their new devotional and was so beyond excited to be chosen!  This journey has been so exciting and fun and I'm so glad I got a chance to be a part of it! I love Kristin and Bethany’s heart for the Lord.   They’re desire to put Him above all else in their lives and to share and encourage girls and young women to do the same.   The thing that first stood out to me as I began to read their Shine Bright Devotional was this line in their intro- “just keep in mind that this devotional isn’t intended to replace time in God’s word each day; it’s meant to supplement it.” I think this is so important to realize as we start each new devotional or christian book.   We are meant to read God’s word and be in daily fellowship with Him.   T

Mr. Turept Falls Again

We just finish reading Mr. Turept Falls Again for read-out-loud for school.  This book was the sequel to Because of Mr. Turept (the last book we read for read-out-loud) which we all really loved, because it was a cute and sad story.
This one was a bit disappointing.  It had the same characters, same scenes, but added drama.
First of all this book is about sixth graders though it seems like, with the kids thoughts, deeds and words that they are more like high-school aged kids.  There were things in there that were inappropriate for the ages of the kids who would be reading them and details that children shouldn't be worried or even be thinking about.
The plot was cute and touching, but not comparable to the first one, 'Because of Mr. Turept'.
