Stand By Me- Book Review

Neta Jackson is one of my favorite authors. She wrote the Yada Yada Prayer Group Series and then did a spin-off called the Yada Yada House of Hope Series followed by this book, Stand By Me, the 1st in the SouledOut Sisters Series. I would recommend reading these books in order because so many characters are developed as she goes and carried over into the other series. I thoroughly enjoy her books and this one did not disappoint!

Bringing Up Girls-Book Review

I have had a boy for 7 years now. I read Dr. Dobson's Bringing Up Boys when my son was 6 months old and thoroughly enjoyed it. I now have a baby girl and what a different creature she is!! She is now 9 months old and I figured it was time to read Bringing up Girls now. It starts out by talking about the physiological and psychological differences between boys and girls and I really appreciated all the research and learned a lot about myself as a girl. Dr. Dobson, as usual, hit a home run with this book and I highly recommend it.

For Women Only in the Workplace-Book Review

I love Shaunti Feldhahn's writing. While this specific book didn't speak to me at this point in my life (since I am not in the Workplace), her writing is still great. Her favorite book of mine was a joint venture with her husband called For Women Only/For Men Only. It's a two-in-one book where one side of the book is for women and the other side is for men. It's a great book for understanding the opposite sex. I would definitely recommend For Women Only in the Workplace if you are a woman in the workplace!
