Everyday is Mothers Day Gift Ideas: TV Drama & Book Reviews

The Royal tour continues and now we are going from tea sets to books. On blog, I’ve talked about so many books and television shows, but out of all the entertainments posts that I’ve written, Victoria consistently makes me smile. If you’ve been following my blog, you would have heard me talk about the new season of Victoria and the novel, but sadly I didn’t have the book at the time. I did promise to read it and feature it on my blog and that day is here! Special thanks to St. Martins Press for sending me the book.

I got the book and let me tell you how descriptive and the elegance in the vocabulary within every dialogue was unbelievable. Daisy Goodwin accurately matched the characters in the mini-series based on the novel and I must admit just like the show, the book left me wanting more. Below is a video of me talking about the novel and other books that Daisy Goodwin wrote. Keep your fingers that I get a chance to read “The American Heiress & The Fortune Hunter also by Daisy Goodwin.

Book Club Favorites: Novel Storytelling Week

In life, we all have a story that inspires us to be better people. The story of Hadassah who took on the name as Esther to protect her people. This story is one of my most favorites, because of the fearlessness that Easter had to stand for the truth of her origin. This is true in today’s society, you will have to stand for who you really are without being ashamed. This is a mark of a true disciple of God, for this is what a witness proclaims to be, a servant of the most high God. I say of this to say, no matter which situation you’re in, never be ashamed or afraid to state what you truly are. You are identified by your faith and verbal state of who you are. Each and every day we have the opportunity to brave! This what the story of Esther teaches, beyond the love story or added elements.
I hope you will treasure this book as I do.

For some of you who know the Book of Ruth and for some of you who are unfamiliar with it, The Book of Life is based off a young woman who gave up everything just to follow her mother-in-law even when the death of her husband brought her great sadness she chose to stay where she felt peace and Solace and God’s connection. Even when we sometimes in life you that this the past so we take are hard extremely hard and gives a very hard life we sometimes forget that those who diligently desire to serve God are not going to have an easy life or a path but God’s blessings will give us the courage to finish our journey. This devotional also has video sessions where you can go on the LifeWay site too Log onto video Bible studies as well as documenting your own personal Bible study that you may have with your family. The book also touches on a very important key point is that we often in situations that we face in our life about how quitting main give us a moment of rest but the feeling of giving up give this torment so my diligently taking one day at a time and working bit by bit and finishing the task you feel complete and now that you’ve done your job so that’s what I love that this book also reminded me that even if I’m writing an article on shooting a video that diligently doing it bit by bit and putting my all into it will not only help my viewers and my visitors that sees them but also the companies and that willingly allow me to view their product so they also learned that and I will apply that to my life going forward. This book also touches on how as women that we need to be Fearless we need to be determined we need to eat because wisdom and we need to be willing to go the extra mile and to help others even though we may not always feel happy at times but bring joy to someone else’s life returns and restores joy to us so this book definitely reminds me that each and every day that I decide to do something for another person that also is going to see you and passing on that torch so that same person can do something kind for another one so that’s what I want each and every one of you to get from this book is that this book remind us that whatever we do good or bad has consequences and results it’s like ripples in a river you make one step and then the steps and grow and grow so whatever Good Deeds that you do it grows and grows and passes on and brings joy to others lives.

The Crimson Cord, By Jill Eileen Smith.

This book tells the story of a woman named Rahab and her adversity even in the midst of her life being taken away each moment she’s with strange men just to pay off a debt. The story conveys such sadness and happiness in the midst of everything, including reminding us that no matter what our circumstance is when the opportunities reveal itself to do what is right and what is honorable we must do it. Rahab who then was a prostitute who helped Joshua spies the servant of the God, to escape the city of Jericho unharmed and returned they promised to spare her life for her generosity. Little did Rahab know that was the beginning of a clean slate for her life of all the turmoil she endured was coming to an end and a new life would unravel itself, even though in the midst of all God never forgot her and He renewed Rahab. Stories are intertwined even though our experiences are extremely different God finds a very funny way of connecting us in some special way and we can learn from these stories of the Bible and how they can help us, by Inspiring us to be better people. I hope that this book I described can also help you in your life.

The Prophetess, by Jill Eileen Smith.

This book is about a woman named Deborah. She was a very influential woman in the times of the judges in the Bible. Deborah was a prophet of the God of the Israelites, the fourth Judge of pre-monarchic Israel, counselor, warrior, and the wife of Lapidoth according to the Book of Judges. This book is powerful because it reminds me of how God holds no place in his heart for a certain gender or person. This book just empowered me and reminded me that no matter what age you are or language God will choose you no matter what you’ve done in your life.

God will use your life as your greatest testimony good or bad and as we’ve seen in the Bible even based on the story of Moses and Joseph God use their stories to help others and to bring his 12 tribes together.
As young people, we need to be strong, obedient and we need to walk in God’s light, his spirit no matter who we are or where we come from. I hope that this book can help you in your life and to bring you peace in the situation you may be going through and I want to thank you once again for joining me on this book experience.
