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!!!   

💖 Susan 💜

American Heritage Girls ~ Another year another great adventure!

American Heritage Girls

logo from policy manualI LOVE American Heritage Girls. If you are interested in learning more about American Heritage Girls, visit their website at www.American Heritage Girls.org
My two girls and I started with our local AHG troop in August of 2015. Since then we have enjoyed many fun adventures!  My youngest started out as a 2nd year Tenderheart, and my older daughter started as a 2nd year Explorer.
I began as not only an AHG Mom but also an Assistant Unit Leader.  I have also taken on the Assistant Treasurer position as well as help coordinate different outings and events and occasionally teach as the need arises.
My family believes in the core values of the AHG program – growing women of integrity through service to God, family, community, and country.
While merit badges are not the focus of AHG, my daughters enjoy this aspect and the sense of accomplishment that brings.  With each year in AHG, my girls earn approx 5-8 badges during our troop meetings and at home.  Then with Summer Camp they each earned additional badges.
