Book Review--To Heaven and Back

Hi, everyone I am blogger #2 and I thought I would write a book review.
  One of my favorite hobbies is reading.  I love to read all types of books.  As all of my eight children would tell you, if you need a gift for mom just get her a book and she will be delighted.

 Yesterday I finished a book that I thought was very inspiring.   The book I chose was   " To Heaven and Back" .  This book is a True Story wrote by Mary C. Meal, MD.

 
 I will put down a little from the back of the book.  "To Heaven and Back is Mary's remarkable story of her life's spiritual journey and what happened as she moved from life to death to eternal life, and back again.  Detailing her feelings and surroundings in heaven, her communication with angels, and her deep sense of  sadness when she realized it wasn't her times,  Mary shares the captivating experience of her modern-day miracle.  Mary's life has been forever changed by her new found understanding of her purpose on earth, her awareness of God, her closer relationship with Jesus, and her personal spiritual journey was suddenly enhanced by a first-hand experience in heaven." 

 My thoughts of this book was very clear, that it was a very spiritual and inspiring book.  I enjoyed how easy it was to read, and it is written very well.  While I was reading the book I was impressed with her ideas and conclusions.  What impressed me the most  is her conclusion are basically the same as what I have learned and thought all my life.  Life after death has always been clear to me.  I really have never questioned it.  The reason why, came from my father's near death experience as well, where he has told of the feeling he had as he was entering heaven.  I also was impressed as she explains that she knows she is a Child of God and how she felt his love for her. 
 
This book is a fast read.  I enjoyed it.  There is valuable quotes worth underlining and rereading again and again.  I would recommend this book to everyone.

Hope you enjoy!

hairstyle #9 braid buns

Whooa (Big sigh of relief), I am so glad that November is here.  Don't get me wrong I love October  especially Halloween, but now that I am a grown up person Halloween isn't quite as fun as when I was a kid. Or maybe it is still as fun, but now I have to do all the work to prepare for  it. I love this time of year (really who doesn't?) I love the Beautiful autumn colors, and the slight nippy feeling outside. I love sitting by a cozy fire,  and taking really warm baths while the air around me has a slight chill.  Most of all I love Thanksgiving, and being around people I love. Well enough of my sentiments, and on to this really cute and simple hairstyle.This style is cute on everyone, and it is very quick. Which is always a plus when your rushing to get a little one ready for school. First you create two pigtails.
