My Intentional Mondays

This week was a bit off kilter for me. Holidays and snow days threw my schedule off a little. But it was also a good week for making memories, playing in the snow, taking beautiful pictures, and enjoying my kids. As well as, getting a little extra housekeeping done such as organizing my sewing nook which tends to get out of hand quickly when I am working there. I even had time to work on some of the Bible covers I am making.

My reading schedule consisted of:
Finishing Garden of Madness Audiobook
I can't wait to review it. Once you get into this story, it is hard to turn it off. And I love how it makes the Bible and Babylon come to life.  I am always fascinated by God's hand even in the most seemingly insignificant things. We have been studying a little about the old Babylon in school lately, and once again, a book has come at the perfect time, and I didn't plan it like that. The kids and I battled, kindly, whether to listen to mom's book or watch TV. I haven't yet figured out how to put it on my iPod, but I did come up with some creative ways to keep them busy while listening to my book. In the end, even my oldest daughter got caught up in the story and now she is going too have to start from the beginning and listen to the whole thing.

And continuing The Peaceful Wife
This is one you want to meditate on as you read. I am a little over half way. Maybe by next week I will be ready to review it.

This week I will be reviewing:
a children's book about being buddies

The Best Yes (audiobook)

With This Ring

I also started a couple new books:
Ashes to Ashes - medieval time period.
Ashes to Ashes
 A body is found in the town's Mid-summer's Eve bon-fire after the embers died down. Who's body? How did he die?

I Give You Authority

A book on spiritual warfare. I am reading it slow and with prayer and meditation.

How was your week? Did you get snow?
Where we live, any little amount of snow means school cancellations. Mostly because even if the snow has melted off in the valley, the mountain snow usually lasts quite a bit longer, which makes it dangerous for the buses to run.


  1. Those are beautiful pictures! It's finally snowing here and I hope it amounts to a lot. :)

    I recently finished "With this ring?" as well - should be reviewing it soon. It had some cute stories!

    1. Raechel,
      Thank you for stopping by.
      I am just finishing up With This Ring, and have really enjoyed it.

  2. Our family is so glad that the snow has stopped falling here in VA. The sun is shining and hopefully, melting will start soon. :-)

    1. Melissa, I know what you mean. I don't mind a little snow for the kids sake. They really love to go out and play in it, but personally, I love sunshine and warmer temps. Today we are getting rain.


I love hearing from my readers. Thank you for leaving a comment.
