At my house, the sign of a really good book is whether or not I feel compelled to update Grant regularly on what's going on in the story. And whether or not I choose to read it during the precious hour of the day called nap time. And whether or not I go around repeatedly saying, "Oh my. This book."

All I can say about Unbroken is: This book. Wow. It's on the verge of unbelievable because of the grandness of the story. I love amazing, true stories that also teach you about American history! Big thanks to my great sister-in-law, Ann, for recommending this book to me. I can barely tear myself away from the thickly-worded, suspense-filled pages. Honestly, I can't believe it has not been made into a movie already. If you guys haven't read it yet, treat yourself.

In other news, today is the last day of the $15 custom blog banner sale! Get 'em while they're hot! And thanks to everyone who has been ordering. You've made the past couple weeks of my lonnnng winter not so long.

Thanks for recommendation, Summer! I've been looking for a good story to read and am going to see if my library has this today!

I read that book about 6 months ago. It was almost too much. As in, I could hardly handle reading what these men went through. Such a good book. This had so much in it I couldn't do justice in giving my husband updates..he just heard from me "you HAVE to read this!" about 500 times!

I'm reading it now (on my phone while nursing!) and it's the first time in a while that I will stay up hours into the night just reading. What an incredible story. Where's Louis now? I want to meet him!!



about this blog

Hello, I'm Summer. A people-loving introvert whose hope and life is in Jesus. His promises are my passion and my ministry is homelife. This blog is a place for me to write about everyday things. Especially food. My favorite thing to do is sit around a table, lingering over a long meal with good conversation. I live with my husband and our 2 littles. We like blizzards, thrifting, grammar, guacamole, cheerful hearts, nice manners, good movies, and making simple, real, nutrient-dense food.
