The Respect Dare by Nina Roesner

The Respect Dare by Nina Roesner was an interesting in challenging book. It is broken up into 40 “dares” and it is intended that the reader will do one dare per day until finished. Each dare has a verse, often a little story as an example and then a set of questions that lead to the dare for the day. While I did not use this book as intended, the book still had an impact on me and my relationship with God and my husband. I know there are things that I can do better and things that I can change to deepen my relationship with both God and my husband. It also did edify a few things that I am doing right, so that was nice as well.

My biggest critique of the book is the stories that many of the chapters have in them. While the author says they are true stories from women she has worked with, I found them a little too perfect and simplistic. Maybe that is the result of keeping them short for the book, but I found it difficult to place myself in many of the little stories that were shared.  But, then again, maybe if I did use the book as it was intended, the results would be a bit different as well. Overall, I do recommend the book as its flaws are easily outweighed by the benefits of the challenges found in this book.

I was a given a copy of this book by BookSneeze in exchange for my review. I was not required to write a positive review.

L.M Montgomery's Beginning and End

My birthday present to myself this year was to join the Modern Mrs. Darcy Book Club. It is an online book club and I am so excited to be a part of it. I haven't been in book club in a long time, mostly because all of the invitations I get usually end with, "and at our meetings, we usually don't talk about the book very much, so it doesn't matter if you read it or not." What is the point of a book club if you are not actually going to talk about the book? So, anyway, I am excited to be a part of a community of people who read as much as I do and like to talk about what they read.
I was even more excited when I learned that the pick for November was going to be Emily of New Moon. And since I have lived on PEI for almost 7 years and had yet to visit L. M. Montgomery's Birthplace, I figured it was high time. So the kids and I hopped in the van this afternoon and drove through some lovely countryside to New London, PEI.

Coming Home from Michigan

Following the Truck Parade, we spent a bit of time at a park near Nick and Dawn's house. And then off to airport. 
We were nicely on time. Check-in went fine, but a little longer because of Gideon not being connected to our family. Security was a breeze and we were soon on our way and in Detroit. We easily found our gate in Detroit, had a 10 minute delay for boarding, but soon enough we were on the plane.
And that it when the bottom fell out. 
While on the plane, the pilots revived notice that Toronto was shut down due to weather. We waited about 20-30 minutes on the plane. They gave us snacks. Then they had us get off the plane and wait in the terminal. Every 30 minutes or so we would be updated that we were still delayed. And we were watching dark clouds and lightening roll into the area surround Detroit, too. Soon, the Detroit airport was shut down too. They brought out snacks and drinks a few different times, but finally around 10 pm (so over 5 hours of being delayed in the a…

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.
