In This House We Will Giggle

I was very interested in reading the book In This House We Will Giggle by Courtney DeFeo. I love that each chapter is another virtue to work on with your family. There are virtues such as joy, forgiveness, patience, and responsibility. In each chapter the author gives scripture, activities, and her real life perspective on how to implement this virtue into your family. I loved her funny personality and her love for the Lord. I was encouraged to be a better mom and live a more purposeful life because of the book. It took me longer than average to read the book because I wanted to implement each chapter with my family. I feel this book helped me to have a better perspective on being a mom.

Slaying the Debt Dragon

The book Slaying the Debt Dragon by Cherie Lowe is a great read. I finished it within 24 hours. If you are a fan of Dave Ramsey then this book is for you. The principles in this book follow his advice. The great thing about this book is this families personal journey in paying off 127 K. I really took away from the book looking at how we spend our money. I am encouraged to make a budget, meal plan and use coupons. I realized that my family is wasting a lot of money. I liked how they put the Lord first and worked hard to pay off their debt. I loved reading the other inspirational stories of other people paying off debt. I found this book to be a good refresher course for the Dave Ramsey class. This is a must read for people wanting to pay off debt.
