What I'm reading:

So, I've been wanting to share some of the books I've been reading lately. But first, here is a website that I am really digging, because it has recipes to make cookies from infant cereal! What a great way to save money on teething biscuits! This website also has other helpful information on it.
Now, I've been reading The Vaccine Book by Dr. Sears. This book was loaned to me by a dear, sweet, new friend of mine, Scarlet, and it is very informational. You wouldn't believe me if I told you what vaccines contain. Or maybe you would, but you would be appalled. However, the book doesn't lean one direction or the other, it is just very informative. I find information to be very useful in these situations of raising a child. I do wish I'd read it, say before Brielle was born; however, I'm not sure how ready for a fight I would've been, considering our Pediatrician (who seems to be the most open-minded one I've met at his office) takes a pretty firm stance on vaccines and their schedules. It is STILL important that I do now know what vaccines, why, what they are made of and how often they are administered, and how they work.
While I was working my way through that book, I picked up a fiction book at the library a few weeks ago. I could NOT put it down. Maybe it was because I'd been on a fiction hiatus, or perhaps it was just that good! Lady of Milkweed Manor by Julie Klassen was a historical fiction treat!

Next, I am involved in a twice-a-month Bible Study covering the book entitled For Women Only by Shaunti Feldham. This is a part of the MOPS organization that Brielle and I are attending this school year. It is really very challenging. But as is marriage! I am learning and growing through it, tough as it may be, and I'm anticipating good things to come of it.

When we first began the book and study it warned that this was "intentionally one-sided." I was like "hmmm....what does that mean?"

I am quickly finding out.
