Making Money from Home_ A Book Review

List Price:
Trim Size:
5 1/2 x 8 1/4 
April 2010 

In tough economic times, conventional jobs can be hard to find. A home-based business could be the answer for many people. Making Money from Home compares the cost of working outside the home with the benefits of working from home. It provides readers with the tools they need to run a successful home business, such as time management advice, details on the foundations of a solid business, tips on marketing goods and services, legal issues to consider, and information on how to use the Internet effectively and how to create a business plan.
This book was an easy fast pace read, easy to understand thoughtful questions at end of each chapter. I learned a bit more about making your website work and bring your clients to you. Some of the chapters I browsed thru since I knew that information already from doing research for my Husband's Ministry website  and his facebook page  . If your just starting a Website and working from home (and many people are in this economy) than take the time to read this book, you will pick up a couple of great tips to help you!

Tyndale House Publishers has provided me with a complimentary copy of this book or ARC.

The Story of Easter- A Book Review

From the Read and Share Bible brand, this retelling of the Easter story is explained in a way that helps young children understand the life, death, burial, and resurrection of Jesus.
Based on the International Children's Bible, this story walks through the last week of Christ's life and is told in a way that teaches children about the amazing gift Jesus gave us. Events include His triumphant entry into Jerusalem on Palm Sunday through His appearance to the disciples and His ascension. The "Can You Retell the Story" activity at the end of the book is a fun way to hide the Word in their heart.
The animated DVD includes a 15-minutes of stories plus coloring pages and other bonus features.

Disclosure of Material Connection: I received this book free from Thomas Nelson Publishers as part of their <> book review bloggers program. I was not required to write a positive review. The opinions I have expressed are my own. I am disclosing this in accordance with the Federal Trade Commission’s 16 CFR, Part 255 <> : “Guides Concerning the Use of Endorsements and Testimonials in Advertising.”

I'm happy to be able to tuck this away for a surprise on Easter morning. I read it today while the kids are at school and I'm pleased with the bright colored pictures and easy to read format. It tells the story of how Easter came about very simply for children., my 11 yr old will be able to read it to her  brother and sister with ease. The DVD which was included was put together nicely and the stories were informative and easy to follow. This is one book which will be displayed every Easter from now on!

Now here is a fast question....What if any books or video's do you share on Easter?

New Bedroom Make-Over Pics and a Coupon Keeper ?

I'm slowly moving items around our bedroom and taking my time finding the perfect piece for my English Country theme. I rarely post pics of our bathroom/bedroom but I'm so excited to share what I've been up to. It's an on-going process, still need to find side table lamps and now something to go over the bed
since I moved 2 of the pics that were there.

My MIL framed this saying for us about raising kids, it's so nice, hope you can read it. I received the "Be Kind" sign form The Carter Clan blog when she was selling them some time ago.
My mom gave me these baskets which fits into these cubby holes perfectly, for about 2 years these cubby holes were just sitting empty.
These 2 hunt scene pics were over our bed for 2 years but I've moved them here by our closet door, I've added the antique side table my Great Aunt Hazel gave me many years ago and some dried flowers.

My mom gave us this fireplace when she moved into her condo, I'm trying to find the perfect decorations for the top. I love the horse which my MIL gave us one Christmas.
Now here is a question for you Ladies, my coupon binder is falling apart, my mom gave it to me after she bought a new one many many years ago. Please tell me how you keep your coupons tidy!


Enjoy Your Wednesday!!
