About Me

My photo

Life is beautiful whether you're soaking in sunshine or caught in a thunderstorm. I take the beauty of life for granted too often. I have a supportive husband who I don't want to live life without, a beautiful son who is always reminding me of the simple things that really matter, and an independent daughter who is teaching me to throw schedules out the window and live in the moment. My day is made when free samples fill my mailbox. I love discovering a new product and sharing it with others. I'm addicted to coupons and every penny counts. I hope you will enjoy reading my posts and will share your success stories with me as well.

Love at Last Sight by Kerry & Chris Shook Book Review

I recently finished the book Love at Last Sight by Kerry & Chris Shook.  I first thought this book would be about relationships between husband and wife but soon realized it's about all your relationships with your spouse, parents, children, and friends in your life.  The book is sectioned to be read in 30 days, read one chapter a day.  At the beginning of each chapter, there are two quotes that are written by famous people.  I really enjoyed reading these quotes, some I'd heard before and others were new.  At the end of each chapter there is a challenge for the week which really helps you focus on what you need to do to make your relationships more meaningful.  The book has four themes which are:

Week One - The Art of Being All There focuses on why physical presence is important in relationships.

Week Two - The Art of Acting Intentionally focuses on why intentionality is more important than chemistry.

Week Three - The Art of Risking Awkwardness focuses on when there's a problem in a relationship, love at first sight says it's time to bail.  Love at last sight says that's the time to dig in and do the hard work of risking awkwardness or uncomfortable conversations.

Week Four - The Art of Letting Go focuses on our control issues and why it's so important to let go of trying to be in control and having things done our way.

Life is too short and at the end of the day, all that really matters is relationships.  Our relationship with God and the people we love.  I highly recommend reading this book if you want more meaningful relationships with the people in your life.
