Breath of Life Bible Journaling

Sunday, August 19, 2018


Here at Breath of Life I am now starting to share my love of  Bible Journaling.  The Breath of Life Bible Journaling will be posts where I share with you at least one or two of my pages from My Creative Bible that my daughter gave me for Christmas two years ago. I will also be sharing the Scriptures that coincides with them as well as possible chatting a little on my personal views concerning the passage.

Can you say this about yourself? Nothing makes me happier than sitting down with a good book. (Submitted by Elizabeth @ Silver's Reviews)

I absolutely LOVE reading a good book. Especially on my front porch sitting in my swing. But I will have to say that I do have just a couple of other things ahead of that. One: spending quality time alone with hubby. Two: Spending quality time with our kids and grandkids.

So, What about you? Can you say this about yourself.  If so, Please Share.
And as always, have a great Friday.

Have you ever had a bookish, nocturnal dream?  If so, please share the story. If not, have you ever had a daydream related to books?  If so, please tell us about it. (submitted by Maria @ A Night's Dream of Books)

I will have to say yes to the first part. A while back I was reading a Science Fiction/Dystopian that I just could not stop reading. I mean I finished it in two days and almost one whole night. When I read the last sentence late the second day, I yelled,"No Way!"  Well I went to bed that night and sometime after falling asleep I dream't that I was in this world that I had been reading about. With only a few hundred or so humans that were left, I was one of them. But the thing is I found myself being put in charge of the list of the ones that were left and I had to decide who was next to be experimented on. If it went well they lived, if not, one less human. Let's just say I woke up yelling "NO WAY!!!"

So, What about you? Have you ever had a bookish dream? If so, Please Share.
And as always, have a great Friday.

Review:The Underside of Joy by Sere Prince Halverson

Thursday, August 2, 2018

Title: The Underside of Joy
Author: Sere Prince Halverson
Category: Contemporary Fiction  
Pub. Date: 1/12/2012 
Publisher: Dutton Adult  
Format: Hard Cover 
Pages: 307 
ISBN#: 0525952594

Synopsis: 

Set against the backdrop of redwood forests and shimmering vineyards, Seré Prince Halverson's compelling debut tells the story of two women, bound by an unspeakable loss, who each claims to be the mother of the same two children.
To Ella Beene, happiness means living in the northern California river town of Elbow with her husband, Joe, and his two young children. Yet one summer day Joe breaks his own rule--never turn your back on the ocean--and a sleeper wave strikes him down, drowning not only the man but his many secrets.
For three years, Ella has been the only mother the kids have known and has believed that their biological mother, Paige, abandoned them. But when Paige shows up at the funeral, intent on reclaiming the children, Ella soon realizes there may be more to Paige and Joe's story. "Ella's the best thing that's happened to this family," say her Italian-American in-laws, for generations the proprietors of a local market. But their devotion quickly falters when the custody fight between mother and stepmother urgently and powerfully collides with Ella's quest for truth.
The Underside of Joy is not a fairy-tale version of stepmotherhood pitting good Ella against evil Paige, but an exploration of the complex relationship of two mothers. Their conflict uncovers a map of scars--both physical and emotional--to the families' deeply buried tragedies, including Italian internment camps during World War II and postpartum psychosis.
Weaving a rich fictional tapestry abundantly alive with the natural beauty of the novel's setting, Halverson is a captivating guide through the flora and fauna of human emotions
