Full of Information

I received a copy of the Ebook Work From Home for Low Income Families by Lia Burres This is a great book for anyone wanting or needing to get started working online from home.

It is full of information on ways that you can work from home. You’ll learn how to  sell online, advertise, and create your own website all FREE!

It has LOTS of links to get you on your way and she has only added things that HAVE actually worked for her which I think is a big PLUS as she has weeded out the bad to only give you what will really pay off.

As she has said herself the book isn't very well organized but I can see where that would be hard to do with all the information and links that she has in there. I have personally learned a lot from this book.

I received a free copy of this book in exchange for my honest review, rather it be good or bad.

A Simple Faith - A Simply Beautiful Story

I love reading Amish books but had never read one by Rosalind Lauer, after reading A Simple Faith I will have to say this won't be the last time I read her books.

Have the kleenex ready, as there are both sad and happy times in a Simple Faith. And how we use the strength of God to get through these times.

A tragic car accident brings the Amish and English together in the start of this story.

I love the way Rosalind Lauer shows that faith, hope, forgiveness, and love bring people closer together.

She does a great job of telling the love story of both an Amish (Elsie/Ruben) and an English couple (Haley/Dylan). I enjoyed all of these characters, not sure if I have a favorite of the characters, they are all great.

I learned about Ellis-Van Creveld Syndrome (EVC) which Elsie has, and Ruben shows a very tender side and big heart when it comes to Elsie.

Jaw Dropping & Surprising

I just finished Manson: The Life and Times of Charles Manson by Jeff Guinn. WOW! I really learned a lot from this book, I was only a small child at the time the Tate/LaBianca murders, so can't really remember when this all took place. But have read and heard lots about it since.
The author gives a lot of background history of the 60's and 70's and what was going on in the world at that time as well as the early years of Charles Manson.

How his mother and and uncle spend time in prison, leaving Charlie to be raised by his grandmother and another aunt and uncle. His mother did try for a while after being released but Charlie was a manipulator from the early years. His early years in reform schools & the penitentiary he learned more ways to get people to do what he wanted.

The book contains interviews from adopted sister Nancy, and cousin Jo Ann. And pictures of Charlie as a young boy who you would not know by looking at the pictures that he would grow up to be the "The Most Dangerous Man Alive".

It is scary that one man could have such influence over people that they would do whatever he told them to.

This is a must have book for anyone interested in the Manson family and the Tate/LaBianca murders.
