The Sunday Post is a weekly meme hosted by Kimba @ The Caffeinated Book Reviewer ~this meme was inspired in part by ~ In My Mailbox~ It's a chance to share News. A post to recap the past week, showcase books and things we have received and share news about what is coming up for the week on our blog.
Wow this was a busy week for me. I'm mostly over being sick--thankfully! Thursday I was able to work my first day remote. I should be able to keep that up once a week, and I think I'm going to love it. Being in my own home was nice. Thursday night I started prepping food for a surprise birthday party we threw for my mom this weekend. Spent Friday night grocery shopping and cooking. The party was Saturday and was a huge success. She was totally surprised--well...until the day of when little things started clueing her in, like my dad taking his time to get ready and stopping by the store on their way. But I'm so thankful for everyone who came to it and helped with it. That was my mom's 1st birthday party ever and I'm glad that it went so well. She turns 60 this Friday--entirely too old to have never had a birthday party before, but we've rectified that now. Also, be sure to check out my brother's book below! I'm super proud of him for publishing it!

Goodreads description--Nova Reed can't forget him-Quinton Carter, the boy with the honey-brown eyes who made her realize she deserved more than an empty life. His pain was so similar to her own. But Nova has been coming to terms with her past and healing, while Quinton is out there somewhere, sinking deeper. She's determined to find him and help him . . . before it's too late.
Nova has haunted his dreams for nearly a year-but Quinton never thought a sweet, kind person like her would care enough about a person like him. To Quinton, a dark, dangerous life is exactly what he deserves. And Nova has no place in it. But Nova has followed him to Las Vegas, and now he must do whatever it takes to keep her away, to maintain his self-imposed punishment for the unforgivable things he's done. But there's one flaw in his plan: Nova isn't going anywhere . . .
Daily Family Devotional: Truths from GOD's Word for Families of All Ages
By: Tim Harris (my brother)
Published: January 15th 2014 by Amazon Digital Services, Inc.
Genre: Religious, Self-Help, Non-fiction, Christian
Source: Personal Kindle Library (I could have gotten it for free, but wanted to support him)
Amazon Description--As a young father, I knew I needed to be talking about GOD’s word with my children on a daily basis from the time they were little. I wanted daily devotionals that, in most cases, could be read and discussed in ten to fifteen minutes. I also wanted these devotionals to uncover much more than the well-known events discussed in most of the children’s books I had seen. I wanted my children to get a taste of the depth that is found in the Bible, and I wanted them to know the entire story contained in it.
I looked for resources that had already been published. I thought, "Surely someone has already created what I’m looking for." Dissatisfied with my search, I decided to create my own family devotionals, and I used them with my family. I posted these devotionals on my website, chasingalion.com, and after several requests, decided to compile them in e-book format.
That's it for my shelves and recaps of my past and upcoming week. What did you add to your shelves this week? Any bookish news you want to talk about? Let me know!
