Win a Kindle and Read a Great Book–The Stone Travelor by Kathi Oram Peterson

The last book on my catch-up review list is The Stone Traveler by Kathi Oram Peterson. Like the previous few books, I agreed to review The Stone Traveler before I left for Portugal the first of July, but unlike the other books, I didn’t actually get this one until after I came home. Kathi, knowing […]

Rebound by Heather Justesen

A Special Mother’s Day Letter from Japan

Today I received an envelope from Japan with letters from the Young Women and leaders in the small branch where my son is serving. They told me what hard-working missionary he is, how well he speaks Japanese, how grateful they are he is serving in their area, how they are keeping an eye him, and […]
