Modesty versus Popular for Girls' Swimsuits

I found this great article on a fellow Mom Blogger's site.  I have personally been struggling with what is appropriate for my girls to wear for swimming versus what their "friends" and peers are wearing.  Here is a great article that talks about God's plan and how to explain modesty to my preteen and younger girl...


Girls for HIS Glory: The 411 on Modest Swimsuits: Hey Girls! Summertime is practically upon us! Yay! For most, summer means no school, days out on the lake, pool parties with friends, Camp...


Here are a couple pictures of our Mother/Daughter compromise - we are both very happy with the styles!

Overall although the choices were hard to make, my daughters and I had fun shopping, trying on clothes and having a "fashion show" in the dressing rooms and talking about modesty and how to handle peer pressure from other kids.

Amazon Fantastic Find ~ Check out this awesome DEAL! #ebook #christian #fiction #deal

As a member of BookBub, I find quite a few new ebooks to read mostly free.  Sometimes I find some that sound so good I pay the Great Deal of only $0.99 or $1.99 for a new book.  Here is one I found that I can't wait to read!  And yes, it is only $1.99!!  Or Free on KU!

An engrossing biography of the longest-reigning female pharaoh in Ancient Egypt and the story of her audacious rise to power.

Hatshepsut—the daughter of a general who usurped Egypt's throne—was expected to bear the sons who would legitimize the reign of her father’s family. Her failure to produce a male heir, however, paved the way for her improbable rule as a cross-dressing king. At just over twenty, Hatshepsut out-maneuvered the mother of Thutmose III, the infant king, for a seat on the throne, and ascended to the rank of pharaoh.
Shrewdly operating the levers of power to emerge as Egypt's second female pharaoh, Hatshepsut was a master strategist, cloaking her political power plays in the veil of piety and sexual reinvention. She successfully negotiated a path from the royal nursery to the very pinnacle of authority, and her reign saw one of Ancient Egypt’s most prolific building periods.
Constructing a rich narrative history using the artifacts that remain, noted Egyptologist Kara Cooney offers a remarkable interpretation of how Hatshepsut rapidly but methodically consolidated power—and why she fell from public favor just as quickly. The Woman Who Would Be King traces the unconventional life of an almost-forgotten pharaoh and explores our complicated reactions to women in power.

Review coming SOON! Check out Hamelin Stoop by Robert B. Sloan

Hamelin Stoop: The Lost Princess and the Jewel of Periluna (Hamelin Stoop, #2)
by Robert B. Sloan (Goodreads Author)


This is the second book in the new Hamelin Stoop series, a young adult fantasy. Hamelin's story began when he was found as a newborn in a tomato crate on the stoop of an orphanage in west Texas. Hamelin's first adventures with the Great Eagle led him through the mysterious cave and finally, across the footbridge. He has learned that his quest to find his parents and learn his true identity will not be quickly done or easy to fulfill. The Great Eagle leads him through the dangerous Waters of Death and Life and into the Land of Gloaming, where Hamelin is thrown into the midst of a war already being waged between the evil Chimera and the mysterious Ancient One. He must help two new friends find a kidnapped princess and recover a stolen jewel, tasks for which they have special gifts that must not be misused; a scarf of sight, shoes of speed, and a sword of death. But these quests are only part of the larger story, a story including Chimera's plan to use Hamelin -- a child of two realms -- to seize the kingdoms on both sides of the Atrium of the Worlds.


Check it out and Book 1 on Amazon and Goodreads!

Review Bloggers STILL NEEDED! Update


Since I have still not found any additional reviewers for Mom Loves 2 Read I will be posting as I can when I have time.

I am currently back in school to get my BSN, raising 3 very busy kiddos, have a very busy hubby who travels with work, back working part time as an RN in a wonderful Dementia Memory support Unit at a local nursing home, also working PRN for a sweet 3-year-old girl with special needs, trying to keep my home in some sort of non-chaotic order and attempting to review and blog in my "free time."


So please bear with me until I can get some new reviewers on board!  Have an interest in sharing your opinion?  Love getting FREE stuff?  Have some experience posting on blogs?
Feel free to contact me if interested in becoming a ML2R Review Blogger!!!
