Celebrate the Release of Erica Vetsch's The Indebted Earl by Entering to Win a Kindle Fire HD8

Scroll down to end of this post to enter! My team of bloggers and I are celebrating the release of Erica Vetsch's The Indebted Earl . We have all been waiting for this last release in the Serendipity & Secrets series. Read more about the book here, then enter to win a Kindle Fire HD 8 tablet at the end of this post. About the book: Can Captain Wyvern keep his new marriage of convenience all business--or will it turn into something more? Captain Charles Wyvern owes a great debt to the man who saved his life--especially since Major Richardson lost his own life in the process. The best way to honor that hero's dying wish is for Wyvern to escort the man's grieving fiance and mother safely to a new cottage home by the sea. But along the way, he learns of another obligation that has fallen on his shoulders: his uncle has died and the captain is now the Earl of Rothwell. When he and the ladies arrive at his new manor house in Devon, they discover an estate in need of a l

Click here or scroll down to request a digital review copy.            Breaking free from an eating disorder is difficult and complex. Those who are suffering often feel misunderstood. They struggle with feeling alone and afraid, ashamed to tell those closest to them. Their loved ones also feel helpless and ill-equipped to care for them. Within this dynamic, hurt, disappointment, and neglect often thrive. From the unique perspective of a  husband and wife team,  Table for Two  shares Krista Dunham’s journey to freedom from her eating disorder while David shares insights as the loved one coming beside her.    Krista suffered from an eating disorder for over ten years and, by God’s grace and through biblical counseling, overcame it. She openly and honestly shares her experience, desc

The Bachelor: Matt: Week 10: The Most Excruciating Episode Ever

I don't know why it didn't dawn on me that it was a three hour blogging night. Probably a good thing I didn't think about it earlier in the day.  In the intro to the night and the After the Final Rose, the pick seems to be spoiled in a clip from Ancho Usual Host (you know I have a thing for making up names, but honestly, I could not think of Emmanuel Acho at the moment). Does that mean I could just end the night here? Get ready for #TheBachelor Season Finale Event, followed by #AfterTheFinalRose , tonight starting at 8|7c on ABC! 🌹 pic.twitter.com/wKc0PEGgXh — The Bachelor (@BachelorABC) March 15, 2021 It's snowy at the resort as Matt heads off to see his mom and brother. He says there's a lot that has gone on, and in the past, he's been guarded.

The Bachelor: Matt: Week 9: The Fantasy Suite Dates

  Tonight at 8|7c on ABC, #TheBachelor is all-new with the final three ladies 🌹 pic.twitter.com/LbxbUNB5n3 — The Bachelor (@BachelorABC) March 8, 2021 I know I have threatened this before, but I'm very serious this time... This very well may be my last season to blog on The Bachelor or The Bachelorette . I just have too many other things I need to be doing right now besides blogging on this dumpster fire of a show, even if it does at least keep me somewhat actively blogging. Speaking of which, I need to catch up on the rest of last week's posts because it was an extremely busy week. After I get through, I have load upon load of laundry to do and I haven't tended to the dishes in my kitchen sink other than to pile more in there since Friday night when I started a load in the already full dishwasher. I also need to be working on press kits. Sigh. So, without further ado, here we go.  It's overnight date week AKA fantasy suites. We have three smitten kitten's left:

The Bachelor: Matt: Women Tell All

Another Monday, another day of big intentions of being in on the couch at 7:00, another failure. Hoping to whiz through this episode because, are we really going to gain anything insightful? I doubt it. Chris Harrison says there was more controversy and drama than in any season before. Only if you count his own controversy and drama. A lot of cat fights and mean girls. More mean girls than any other season.  After a roll of clips of drama between the women, Chris addresses Jessenia and MJ. MJ says she owned it and apologized for what she said to Matt. She still says she wasn't there to tear anyone down, only to build people up. Jessenia was just Jessenia. Chris is ready to move on quickly. Chris changes the subject to when the five new women arrived. Ryan spoke, mentioned Victoria, and quickly changed the subject to Queen Victoria's reign. Victoria likes to make up words like upsetness. She claims she does blow off comments about her bra straps though. (I for one am guilty of t

Daniel in the Lions' Den

When I was a kid, we only sang the Daniel and Jonah parts of this song, but I found more verses on a website. Kids these days don't know any of the verses! I've tried it with groups after this that didn't know it.    Who Did Swallow Jonah? Who did? Who did? Who did? Who did? Who did swallow Jo-Jo-Jonah? Who did? Who did? Who did? Who did?
