Courage to Soar {Book Review}

unnamed-49

We all watched as Simone Biles dazzled us in Rio this summer. With her adorable spunky personality how could you not love her! Actually because of her and my daughter {age six} fell in love with gymnastics and started in September after the Rio Olympics. Seeing Simone’s determination helped my daughter work hard and always try new things, and in less than two months she was advanced to pre-competitive team!! I know that my daughter is not the only one 🙂

Back to this summer, as you watched Simone did you ever wonder how she got there? Did you ever wonder when you would hear the little news blurbs talk about how she was adopted or how it’s been a hard road? I know I did so when I was given the opportunity to get my hands on her book Courage to Soar I absolutely jumped at the opportunity (my daughter was just as excited as I was.)
In the book the Courage to Soar Simone shares about her very early life, early memories and the trials that this little tiny girl and her siblings went through…have a few tissues on hand. It’s not just about her early life but her life from then up until, well now! My daughter LOVED the section of the book that was full of pictures of Simone from little girl to now!

Courage to Soar is all about encouragement and that is exactly what it does! I love that it shows how Simone went from a very difficult beginning to being the star that we all saw at the 2016 Rio Olympic games.

It’s such a wonderful book. I highly recommend this book to everyone, especially those of you like us who adore Simone. If you have gymnast this is a book that she will absolutely love.

If you do have a gymnast who loves Simone I recommend check out her signature leotards at GK Elite!

Journaling Bible {review}

unnamed-47

Not long ago I received the NIV journal edition Bible from Zondervan! What makes this Bible stand apart from other bibles? Well for me it’s right there in the title “journal edition” it’s oversized margins on every single page makes it so easy for me to jot down different thoughts or draw a pretty picture to remind me of the way that I felt when I read a specific passage. I really love this Bible and have enjoyed doodling and writing in it since I got it!

This Bible is hardback and does comes in other cover colors. I absolutely love the turquoise Floral with pink elastic band {to help it stay closed} This quickly became my go to Bible, I love taking with me, I love reading it, I love drawing and I love writing in it. One thing that I do have to point out is that the text is smaller than the average Bible text. This particular bible is targeted towards girls/women, although I do believe that a lot of young men/ men would probably enjoy this as well, with that being said the cover option are not guy-ish, I  would really like to see some guy styles a maybe a Buffalo plaid cover {my hubby would love that!} or even just a solid black leather cover. I know my husband would love to have a journaling Bible.

I give this Journal Bible absolutely two thumbs up highly recommend it this would be a perfect gift, and is wonderful for anyone that loves journaling.
