Cut your Grocery bill in Half by Steve and Annette Economides

I have to tell you that I was very skeptical getting this book. I figured that it was just another author trying to get rich quick with a witty title. I consider myself the coupon/money saving queen and didn't think I could learn any more!

I was wrong! I was actually blown away by this couple. The hard work and dedication to their family is impressive and incredible. I was telling my husband how they only spend $350 a month on groceries and we just cracked up. There is no way. However as I read the book I can see how they do it! It is done with a lot of hard work though.

They give a lot of impressive tips, ideas and many other money savings techniques. I am excited to put some of them into play. There are also some scrumptious looking recipes that I can't wait to try.

I received this book from Booksneeze in exchange for a review. I was not required in any way to give it a good review.

Out Live your Life by Max Lucado

What can I say?

This may be one of the most inspiring books I have ever read. I have never been a huge Max Lucado fan but this book might have me on the Lucado side!

The book is based on the New Testament and the early church. How the early church was started by twelve "hillbillies" so to speak. The first twelve made mistakes, worked hard, had menial jobs, were not rich, did not live in splendor or were born to kings. Yet these twelve changed to world. If those twelve could change the world could'nt we?

I read the Pot Roast chapter to my ad council and they loved it. We will probably buy copies to pass out to church members to try to inspire our congregation. Our church is very mission minded and I think they will all be inspired by it.

I truly urge you take this book and read it, study it and ready it again. You will be changed!
