Book Review & Giveaway ~ Where the Heart Cries

I just finished my first book by Cindy Woodsmall this week. When the Heart Cries is a heartbreaking story of an Amish girl Hannah. She is in her rumschpringe (teenage running around) years. Not yet baptized into the Amish church Hannah has more leeway about rules than the Amish church members. However, when a tragic event happens to Hannah, rumors are soon to follow. How much of the truth is in the stories going around and how much is exageration. Will the full truth set her free or not?

I absolutely loved this book. Cindy Woodsmall is an awesome writer. The plot of the book was well written and kept my attention. There is so much I could say but not without giving away the details.

I'm very simple and very practical. I've learned to ask my selfself, Do you really need that?

I've been working on learning to live a simplier life - my husband and I are paying off our debt (Dave Ramsey FPU) and buying things outright vs. putting them on credit - :)

Hmmmm. This is something I am working on. I tend to be a pack rat and lately have been going through boxes and boxes of things. I am getting rid of a lot of it and it is so freeing! Now I ask myself if an item is something I love, need, and use before I keep it!

I have no choice but to live simply at the moment. My husband is just about to finish up college and we have a 10 month old. We are just scraping by but still loving life!

Maybe I've always had a simpler life because we don't have lots of expensive "toys" and things of this world to spend time on upkeep. My family has always enjoyed reading, playing games, gardening, crafting...things that gave us family time.

I like the sound of that book. I've had my nose buried in a great one too, What Southern Women Know About Faith by Ronda Rich. I love it! Don't want it to end. haha.

Living simple? Hmm, easy to do when you're on a budget. You can't afford to live wildly!

Being intentional about things....family time, meals together, resting....those are all ways we live simple.

Simple life? Well, my hubby and I stick with one car - I take him to work every day on my way to work & then pick him up. It's cheaper and gives us more chatting time without the diversion of TV!

Thanks for the contest, the book sounds interesting.

I have always tried to keep things simple.. I am organized and like to keep clutter at bay. I don't need a lot of things to make me happy. Simple walks and sitting around reading a good book are my favorites.

Hmmm.... Lately I have been really trying hard to bake from scratch. All these processed foods can be tasty but they aren't as healthy and they are more expensive. It is amazing how many things you can make with flour and yeast!

I like the menu section. It is an area I tend to struggle with and appreciate the suggestions.

I live a simple life by not having a lot of materialistic things.
