"Plain Paradise" Guest Blogger

Plain Paradise, by Beth Wiseman does not disappoint. This is the 4th Daughter's of the Promise Novel, yet you do not have to read the previous books to understand the story line.

Imagine being 17 and forced to give up your child. Then imagine finding out that you are going to die in under a year. Meet Josie, who is working through pain and suffering and moves to be closer to the daughter she never met. Linda wakes one day to a stranger on her front porch, learning soon that this is her birth mother...when she never knew she was adopted. Linda feels betrayed, yet becomes friends with Josie and comes to terms with the betrayal from her family. As the book progresses so does Josie and Linda's relationship, an unexpected twist happens which only makes the story more delightful. Will Linda be able to love two mom's and what about her beau who worries about Linda leaving the Amish, hope and love can conquer many things, will hope and love conquer in this story?

This was a great book, I love learning about the Amish and it always amazes me how similar their lives are to the rest of ours outside the Amish community. This is a light read, but a good read and quite entertaining!

Planning a "Fancy Nancy" Tea Party

Little girls go wild over "Fancy Nancy" and would be thrilled to have a "Fancy Nancy" tea party. Can you imagine? Bright colors, frills, cupcakes, and little girl smiles? Oh, and we can't forget the tea! Perfect!

When looking for the perfect tea cups, be sure to check thrift stores. You can find some adorable ones that are funky! You could even find white ones and have the girls decorate them with special paint.

There are a lot of different ways you can incorporate Fancy Nancy into your party. Look for feather boas at thrift stores and garage sales. You could also host a mini fashion show and provide them clothes to dress up with! Another fun project would be to purchase straw hats at a craft store (Joans or Michaels) and have the girls decorate those.
