Candle Bible HandbookCandle Bible Handbook by Terry Jean Day

My rating: 4 of 5 stars



I was very impressed with this book. I do wish that it had been in KJV though. That was the one reason I couldn't give it a five start. Otherwise it was great!

I can see this book being used for homeschool purposes and just as a history reference in general.

This book will help give you an idea about the clothing that people wore and the lifestyles that people lived during the times of your favorite Bible stories.

From the back cover:

Travel through Bible history with this comprehensible exploration of the Bible, following the key narratives from Genesis to Revelation. Perfect as a child's first Bible reference, he will travel through Bible lands and times and discover how the people lived: the foods they ate, the homes they occupied, the clothes they wore, and the work they performed. There are sections of study questions throughout to further learning, as well as glossaries and FAQs to help understanding

My Week in Review 4/26-5/3

Saturday, May 3, 2014

My goodness! I’m finally coming up with the time to write my week in review. I really should call it “weeks in review” because I didn’t have a chance to write about last week.

Life has been a whirlwind as of late! Music rehearsals for the girl’s recital this month, trying to get our house listed, orthotic fittings, therapy, trips to Charlotte and a little bit of everything else has kept me on my toes.

In fact, I’ve fallen to one book behind schedule on my reading as well because I’ve just not had the time to sit down for two seconds to read!

So, let me update right fast and share that Ms. Kahlan got her orthotics! She’s doing absolutely fantastic with them. She’s up to about 3-4 hours a day in them. By the end of the month she should be in them pretty much all the time. It’s just taking time to get her used to them.

Prue had her checkup in Charlotte this week over her residual pneumonia. For the first time in 14 weeks she has a clear chest xray! We’re so excited about that. Nothing beats a healthy kiddo!

What else… lots of work in the house. I’ve been steaming the floors. I really hate carpet; let me tell ya…eventually I will have a house that has zero carpet through it. A throw rug is fine but carpet is something that I really hate.

I have gotten in some photography practice since my last update. I also started setting up a website for when I am ready to start offering packages. Here are a few favorites since my last update.

Anyway, here it is 10:30 pm and I’m just now writing this review because I spent my Saturday evening in the E.R. with Priya. Turned our back for one second and the kids got the bright idea to try to close the gate on the trailer that my father in law was unloading. Needless to say, it slipped from tiny hands and landed on a tiny foot. Thank God it isn’t broken!

Signing off for the night—heading to bed just completely exhausted and hopeful that next week isn’t quite as, umm…chaotic.
