20 THINGS YOU PROBABLY DIDN’T KNOW ABOUT US!

Erin and I (Bethany) were tagged by our friend Kayla @ My Book Muse to participate in this fun little questionnaire! So, here we go! 1. HOW TALL ARE YOU? Bethany- I’m pretty short – only 5’2″. I married into a family of giants…lol. My husband is 6’2″ and his brother is 6’7″. I feel like I’m raising 3 boys that are going to be tall as well. My oldest already surpassed me 1 1/2 years ago.

Is that a talent? Erin- I don’t […]

Cover Reveal: The Law of Moses by Amy Harmon

The Law of Moses Goodreads If I tell you right up front, right in the beginning that I lost him, it will be easier for you to bear. You will know it’s coming, and it will hurt. But you’ll be able to prepare. Someone found him in a laundry basket at the Quick Wash, wrapped in a towel, a few hours old and close to death.

I imagined the crack baby, Moses, having a giant crack that ran down his body, like he’d been broken at birth. I knew that wasn’t what the term meant, but the image stuck in my mind. Maybe the fact that he was broken drew […]
