Serpent of Moses by Don Hoesel


While wandering the dessert, the Israelites were struck plague of poisonous snakes. Moses created a serpent on a pole and any Israelite that was bitten could look at the snake and be healed. This snake was thought to be destroyed centuries ago, but it was actually hidden. And now many people are fighting to have it and the extraordinary powers it holds.

Jack Hawthorne is an archeologists on a mission to find this object. But, little does he know, there are several other people after the snake and his life own life as well. When Jack doesn’t return from his trip, his girl friend and her brother set out to find him. They quickly find themselves in the middle of a situation much bigger than themselves and one that could cost them their very lives.

This was a high paced, action packed book. I enjoyed it for the entertainment value, but the story is pretty far out there. It is interesting to think about if some of these ancient Biblical artifacts do still exist somewhere. Would that change how people feel about the Bible and their faith? If you are looking for a page turning story, this one is for you.

I was given a copy by Bethany House Publishing. I was not required to write a positive review. All opinions are my own.

He's Rolling!

Gideon has master rolling this week and sometimes, he is not too happy about it... He can go from his back to his belly all on his own. And if you lay him on his belly propped up on his elbows, he will roll over to his back.
He started rolling in his crib at nap time, so that means no more swaddling. Which also means we have to relearn sleeping through the night. He has done two nights swaddle free, which have gone okay. He stirs a few more times during the night, but I only got up once to actually feed him so he will settle back to sleep. So, not too bad and hopefully we get back on track quickly.

A Farm Boy Already

I don't fully understand how this happens, but Gideon already loves the tractor. If he is in the kitchen or the living room and he hears the sound of the tractor, he crawls to the closest window and has a look outside. When he sees it, he often starts drumming on the window sill, so excited. He repeats a little "T" sound, like he is trying to say tractor. He hasn't actually gone for a ride in the tractor, yet. But I think he will be pretty excited to that some day soon.

Storybook Character Day 2016

Today was Storybook Character Day at Joash's school. I tried to make it easy on myself and encouraged Joash to use one of the costumes we have on hand. So, he picked the chef costume and took the book Sam the Chef.  Notice anything about his face? I didn't have time to take a picture before school and we got a call right around lunch time that Joash had a pretty bad fall on the asphalt at school during recess. He was pretty shook up about, so I went to pick him up early today. He seems pretty much his normal self now, so we are not too worried. And of course, school pictures are on the 31st, so we will have to see how well he has healed by then.
