Freedom's Light, Book Review

Freedom's Light by Colleen Coble

A young lighthouse keeper must navigate the dangerous waters of revolution and one man’s obsession with her to find safe harbor with the sea captain she loves. 
Hannah Thomas believes she’s escaped Galen Wright’s evil intentions by marrying an older lighthouse keeper. Seemingly safe in faraway Massachusetts, her world is upended when John is killed in one of the first battles of the Revolutionary War. Hannah is allowed to continue the difficult task of tending the twin lighthouses in John’s place, though she faces daily disapproval from John’s family. She thinks her loneliness will subside when her younger sister arrives, but she finds Lydia’s obsession with Galen only escalates the dangerous tides swirling around her.
A stormy night brings a shipwrecked sea captain to Hannah’s door, and though he is a Tory, her heart is as traitorous as the dark-eyed captain. Even though she discovers Birch Meredith isn’t the enemy he seemed at first, Hannah isn’t sure their love will ever see the light of freedom.

My Thoughts: I did receive this book to review, but this doesn't effect my opinions of the book in any way. Freedom's Light is a love story based in the American Revolutionary War. The story focuses on a strong female character who's been forced to go it alone after the death of her husband. Then there is the love story. Colleen Coble does an amazing job of putting together two imperfect people and weaving a relationship together. There is the theme of faith throughout the book and it is a good weekend read. 

IN: TOTALWELLNESS Review




Life is stressful, I'm sure I'm not the only one that feels that way. Lately this has been especially true so I was happy when In TotalWellness sent me a few of their herbal teas to try out. What immediately made me interested in the brand was Simone's story: 

"I suffered a life changing event in 2002 - 11% of my body was second and third degree burned after a pressure cooker exploded in my NYC apartment. After 3 weeks in the ICU burn center, I was prescribed vast amounts of opioids and anti-depressant drugs for pain and anxiety. After experiencing severe side effects and dependency from these drugs and with no over-the-counter solution, I knew that I needed to find a healthier way to heal.  With the help of the healers in my four-year Masters program in Acupuncture and Herbology, I discovered my alternative path to getting well.  
My experiences have driven me to to help others who may struggle with pain and anxiety.  Over a decade of successful, professional practice on thousands of NYC and Connecticut patients have led me to marry Traditional Chinese Medicine (TCM) formulas that have been used for thousands of years and have proven highly effective for my patients, with effervescent technology and great taste for a magical combination.
It took 2 years to find the right U.S. manufacturer and in 2018, IN:Total Wellness products were born. "

To try out I was sent three different variations: 

IN: Dream - Made to promote restful deeper sleep. It's a fast acting effervescence that's pomegranate flavored. Helps me fall asleep faster and have a deeper sleep. The ingredients are plant based, and it's modernized traditional Chinese medicine formulas. Take 15 minutes before bedtime. I've been loving this for those nights when I've got an early morning meeting the next day. 

IN: Motion - This uses modernized traditional Chinese medicine formulas to reduce inflammation and muscle pain. While I'm lucky not to have chronic pain or be particularly injury prone I had had a few times to use In: Motion. I find it especially helpful after a workout I've gone a little too far on. Effects last 6-8 hours after taking it. 

IN: Peace - As you might have gotten from the first bit of the blog post this was the supplement I was most looking forward to taking. I tend to use this during the week (hello work) instead of caffeine on a day I have a feeling will be particularly rough. Just like IN:Motion it's made to last 6-8 hours which pretty much gets me through my day.

Keep Christianity Weird, Book Review

Keep Christianity Weird by Michael Frost 

Many Christians have become comfortable letting the world mold them instead of being set apart by God. And many churches have traded in their biblical roots for complacent conventionality. But Jesus and the church are anything but conventional. The hallmark of our faith is that it sees the world differently than the world sees itself.

We are called to be eccentric—off center, unique, different; not conformed to the patterns of the world but transformed by the renewing of our minds. By the grace of God we are not only dissatisfied by sin but increasingly uncompelled by conventionality.

So resist the allure of acceptability. Get back to the unsafe roots of our faith. Be equipped to surprise the world with the Good News it didn’t even know it was waiting for. Challenge the way things are by living a life that has been truly set free by Christ.  


My Thoughts: I have to start by saying that while I was sent this book to review that doesn't effect my review in any way. There are a lot of religious books around but Keep Christianity weird caught my eye right away, and I'm glad I got the chance to look at it. It's refreshing to see people embracing what's different instead of just going what's mainstream and a great look at that. Well worth reading, especially if you're looking for a different perspective on Christianity. 

Once Upon a Farm, Book Review

Once Upon a Farm by Rory Feek

Now raising their four-year-old daughter, Indiana, alone, after Joey’s passing, Rory Feek digs deeper into the soil of his life and the unusual choices he and his wife, Joey, made together and the ones he’s making now to lead his family into the future. 
When Rory Feek and his older daughters moved into a run-down farmhouse almost twenty years ago, he had no idea of the almost fairy-tale love story that was going to unfold on that small piece of Tennessee land . . . and the lessons he and his family would learn along the way.
Now two years after Joey’s passing, as Rory takes their four-year-old daughter Indiana’s hand and walks forward into an unknown future, he takes readers on his incredible journey from heartbreak to hope and, ultimately, the kind of healing that comes only through faith.
A raw and vulnerable look deeper into Rory’s heart, Once Upon a Farm is filled with powerful stories of love, life, and hope and the insights that one extraordinary, ordinary man in bib overalls has gleamed along the way.
As opposed to homesteading, this is instead a book on lifesteading as Rory learns to cultivate faith, love, and fatherhood on a small farm while doing everything, at times, but farming. With frequent stories of his and Joey’s years together, and how those guide his life today, Rory unpacks just what it means to be open to new experiences.
“This isn’t a how-to book; it’s more of a how we, or more accurately, how He, God, planted us on a few acres of land and grew something bigger than Joey or I could have ever imagined.”

My Thoughts: Awhile back I'd heard about this family's story and when I was offered the book for review I was immediately interested. Rory is an amazing writer and the story is one that is worth hearing. It has heartache, love, hope, and is completely inspiring to read Once Upon a Farm.
