Book Review - Behold the Dawn

I recently finished reading a book called BEHOLD THE DAWN by K.M. Weiland. Here is my review:

This is one of those rare books that makes you want to go back and reread parts, not because you missed something the first time, but because you just want to re-savour the moment. The description is so vivid yet it never weighs the story down. Even the complex and sometimes bloody battle scenes (which I sometimes just skim over in some books – even well written ones) warranted complete and thorough attention and her dialogue felt so genuine for the period (even though no one is around to verify how they actually spoke during the middle ages.) This book has high action, beautiful imagery, deep characterization, twists that were actually surprising, and enough romance to satisfy without being sappy. It is hauntingly beautiful. It is the second book I’ve read by author K.M. Weiland and I think I can officially state that I am now a fan.

Blue Jays - (Not the baseball kind)

Blue Jays baseball has been especially fun to watch the last couple of years since our team is actually GOOD. (They almost made it to the World Series last year.) But this post isn't about them...

It's about a real Blue Jay that has been hanging around my yard. Here he is, sitting on the fence. If you haven't seen a Blue Jay in real life, they are actually quite large. They are also a very aggressive bird and usually chase other birds away.

I'm not really a bird lover, per se, but these guys are beautiful.

And another...

And on the heels of the last post, here is another proof copy. This one has me especially excited (not sure why, exactly, but it's true!)

This is a little prayer journal that I was unexpectedly inspired to create this summer called 'Thirty Days of Targeted Prayer: A Journaling Tool To Boost Your Prayer Commitment'. Here's a little blurb from the intro:

"I want to pray more. Really, I do. But my good intensions don't always result in action. time can slip away, my mind can wander, or I just don't remember all the things I want to bring before the Lord at any given prayer session. I created this little journal first and foremost for myself because i was tired of re-creating it every couple of months in one of those generic journals."
