Winnie update!

Hey guys! I couldn’t resist giving you guys a puppy update and showing you a few recent photos! 

Update: My little Winnie is growing so fast! She’s now 14 weeks old!!! The day we got her 4/17/19 she weighed 21.2 pounds she now weighs 23.6 and is a pain to carry around (but we do it anyway)! She has already chewed a hole in her bed and chewed the tail off her fox toy…last night I found that she had eaten a wooden star off our fridge and chewed the nose off her monkey toy. Okay, so she isn’t perfect but her adorableness makes up for the bad stuff! She knows to sit and come and she DEFINITELY has it down that when she comes inside if she sits and sometimes lays down she’ll get a treat! She doesn’t bark except when she is playing with her toys though she does whimper and howl in the night. We’ve been experimenting with different ways to get her to sleep and last night I used ear-plugs…and they were AWESOME!

Interview with Rosy

Hello and welcome back guys! I’m back with another interview…this time with Rosy! I’m having so much fun putting together these interviews…so try not to get to annoyed with so many interviews! Let’s get started my questions are in bold.

9O5A1556

 

1. Can you tell us a little about yourself?

My name is Rosy Marr, and I live with my family of 11 in Cuauhtemoc Chihuahua, Mexico. (See if you can pronounce that!!) I am 15 years old, and some of the things I like are photography, reading, writing, cooking, blogging, singing, playing the piano and sewing. And more! 

 

2. How you first got involved in with blogging?

Um… Well, I was 11, almost 12 when I started my blog, Rosy‘s Writings. I started blogging mainly to keep my friends in the US updated on our lives after we moved to Mexico.

My other blog, The Delightful Dueters, belongs to me and my sister Gracie. 

 

3. You and your siblings sing right? Tell us a bit about that and what’s your favorite song you’ve posted…and hope to in the near future?

Yes, we do! 😀 Well, my sister Gracie and I have enjoyed singing together since, like, forever. Or, maybe more like since… we were 6 or 7.  And one of the things we loved to do ever since we were little is take videos of our songs. (Hence, we have a bunch of videos of Gracie and me as small children singing short choruses and pretty much just being really cute little kids….XD) Anyway, we recently (well, sort of recently!) created a blog, The Delightful Dueters, where we could post all of our more recent videos (And sometimes a blast from the past!). The goal of the blog is to honor God with music. 🙂 
4. What would you say your favorite thing to do outside is?

Hmmm… Maybe take pictures? I love photography! I also love to play outdoor games like capture the flag. 🙂

 

5. What’s your favorite verse?

Hard question!!! It’s so hard to pick, but one I really love is Isaiah 41:10. 

So Do Not Fear, For I Am With You; Do Not Be Dismayed, For I Am Your God. I Will Strengthen You And Help You; I Will Uphold You With My Righteous Right Hand


Pink Flowers6. A favorite photo you’ve taken? (if you can…send the photo and I’ll post it along with the answer).
Super hard!!! XD I’m not sure I have one favorite… Okay, I know I don’t, but here’s one. 

7. Okay…if you were stranded on an Island and you only had grass, sand, and a coconut how would you build yourself a shelter?

Hmmm… I’m not even sure I could manage to pull that off… Yikes! Maybe I could cut the coconut shell in have and use that for a hat… But that’s still not much of a shelter. I guess I’d just probably die of heat stroke. If it were a hot island that is.   

 

8. If you could do three unique things in your life…what would they be?

Let’s see… Go skydiving… Go to London… And… maybe go to the great wall of China? I don’t know, I haven’t thought about this much, so I just said the first three random things that popped into my mind, lol! 

 

9. What would you say is the hardest part of blogging?

Maybe trying to post on a schedule. I tried doing that for a while, but gave up since we always managed to be busy I the day I was going to post! So, I gave up, and now my readers get to be surprised when I post. 🙂 

 

10. What is one thing you’d like to tell the people reading this?

I’ve eaten Alligator meat before! 

Okay, that’s not really what I wanted to say… I guess I’ll just say what’s been on my mind lately. Guys, Jesus has a plan for your life, so we need to live it for Him all the time! Life is short. We don’t know how long we’ll be here, so let’s live our lives for God!

 

Thanks for joining me guys! Again if you’d like to do an interview let me know in the comments! See you guys soon!

Blog Shoutout!

even in the grey
Awesome cover, right??!!

 

Last year, Laura wrote a book called “Even in the Grey”. It’s AMAZING! It has so much action but still so many sweet parts packed into it, it makes you disappointed it’s a short story!

About the book: Daniel Rogers, a young American soldier, harbors bitterness against the man who ruined his life. Memories torment him, and he can’t seem to forget the past. How can a horrible train accident, a pretty French artist, an unplanned reunion, and a pocketful of crayons help him see through his dark world and into the light of forgiveness?

 

So PLEASE go check out this blog and follow it cause it’s awesome! Also if you follow tonight or tomorrow morning you’ll get to read this amazing story! Though you might want to back up and start from the beginning! (oh and let’s see if we can get her to 35 followers)! Thanks, ya’ll!

 

Prayer Request

 

Hi guys! I was recently asked by Hannah to pray for her cousin’s family as they recently lost someone in a car crash. She left behind a young son and a grieving family…please pray for them to seek God’s love through this really tough time! 

Message from Hannah below:

My cousin was killed last week in a car accident and she left behind a young son. I’d like to ask you to pray for her family and especially her little boy. They’re never going to be the same. Thank you, and God bless! 

Thanks, guys! 

 

‘praying for you and your family Hannah, hang in there’❤️

A Question of Loyalty – Book Review

IMG_0142About the book:

A Man. A Brother. A Traitor.

The war has taken everything Micah Wilson has ever held dear, and with all his being he wishes he could do something to stop the heartache. But he often wonders if he’ll

ever be able to move on after the war or forget the brother who left six years before. How can God still have a plan when it seems that the world around him is falling to pieces, to say nothing of his own heart?
Ann Sullivan has seen two brothers changed by the war. And she’s resolved to do something to stop the pain she sees in their eyes from becoming a reality for so many others. The world is on the brink of Normandy when her nursing unit is shipped to England and, while there, an unexpected encounter promises to change her own life . . . forever. But it’s only the beginning. As the war in Europe rages on, Ann is caught in the crossfires. And when the unthinkable happens, she comes face to face with the evil of the Third Reich. Is it possible that the reality of it all is more deadly than even her worst nightmares?
Erich Essler never questioned his duty to his country. All his life he’s struggled to live up to his father’s expectations and bring honor to the Essler name. But when the man he thought of as his only friend turns out to be the enemy, he can no longer rid himself of the questions that continue to torment him. Is what he’s doing really honorable? And does he owe his loyalty to his country . . . or a higher power?
Freedom for Europe dawns on the distant horizon. But in the midst of the fight, four lives will be forever changed, and their loyalty to God and Country brought into question.

About the Author:
Jesseca is a daughter, sister, and a child of God. Her days are spent reading, cooking, spending time with siblings, or playing piano. And writing, of course! At an early age, words fascinated her, and her love for the printed page has only grown. She lives with her parents and seven siblings in the sunny state of Kansas, and she’s convinced there’s no place like home.

 

Where you can find the book:

Goodreads                 Author’s Blog                   Amazon

My Review: 

First off I want to just say this book was…amazing! I was so close to tears at many points (and that’s impressive for me). After reading the first two of Jessica’s books and hearing that there was a book tour I just HAD to be part of it! The morning after I received the book I started reading it and couldn’t stop until I had reached the end.

Favorite character? Now, this might seem like an odd answer once you’ve started reading the book but I really enjoyed the character Arnold and Erich…mostly because of how they act in the ending…why you ask? Well, you’ll have to read the book and find out!!

I’d give this book 5 stars as it was well written, well portrayed, and the characters had such meaning! My favorite thing about the book as it didn’t leave me with that uncomfortable feeling that many books in stores leave you with.

The book had a great message in it! The characters talked with such meaning about their faith to others but didn’t force their beliefs until the other person was ready.

I’d recommend it for 12 and up (though depending on the families decision). This book was super clean and awesome and also displayed the war scenes very well. I’m looking forward to hopefully reading more of Jessica’s work in the near future!

Easter weekend!

Happy Easter everyone! I hope you all are having a great weekend! I thought I would share some encouraging verses that go with Easter for you all!

 

Luke 24:6-7

He is not here; he has risen! Remember how he told you, while he was still with you in Galilee: ‘The Son of Man must be delivered over to the hands of sinners, be crucified and on the third day be raised again.’

 

1 Peter 1:3

Praise be to the God and Father of our Lord Jesus Christ! In his great mercy, he has given us new birth into a living hope through the resurrection of Jesus Christ from the dead.

 

John 11:25-26

Jesus said to her, “I am the resurrection and the life. The one who believes in me will live, even though they die; and whoever lives by believing in me will never die. Do you believe this?”

 

Romans 6:8-11 8 Now if we died with Christ, we believe that we will also live with him. For we know that since Christ was raised from the dead, he cannot die again; death no longer has mastery over him. The death he died, he died to sin once for all; but the life he lives, he lives to God. In the same way, count yourselves dead to sin but alive to God in Christ Jesus.

 

Romans 10:9 9 If you declare with your mouth, “Jesus is Lord,” and believe in your heart that God raised him from the dead, you will be saved.

 

The weather has been WONDERFUL! So I went outside and snapped a few photos of Winnie! She is such an amazing puppy! She doesn’t bark much and she follows me around outside without a leash.
