New Release: Messy Beautiful Love

 This post contains promotional content.

I am so excited that today, the release date, is finally here, and that you will have the chance to read your very own copy of Messy Beautiful Love by Darlene Schacht!


Darlene is the creator of Time Warp Wife, and has written one of the best, encouraging, and honest books on marriage that I have ever read. Messy Beautiful Love takes an in-depth look at the good, bad, and downright messy layers that form a beautiful, love-filled marriage.


Darlene has been married for 24 years, and has experienced the many highs, lows, twists and turns that come with marriage. This book does not come off as preachy, nor is it filled with lofty, impossible tips. She shares insight from her own life, and encourages the reader to believe that their marriage is worth fighting for.  There is grace available for all couples who wish to save, or fortify their relationships.

Each chapter contains real-life illustrations, and Biblical building blocks upon which you can take the steps needed to strengthen yourself, and your marriage. I found myself smiling, laughing, wiping tears, and even talking back to this book. Believe me when I tell you that the words you will find inside Messy Beautiful Love are as real as they come. This book gets down and dirty, and will make you take a long, hard look in the mirror. If you have been trying things your way, and within your own strength, and things are not getting better, then you might want to try a different approach.

All marriages, no matter their current state, could use the information in this book. Messy Beautiful Love will challenge, comfort, excite, and engage you. You will find the strength to fight for your marriage, and the courage to admit your hidden thoughts. This book ministers with hope, invokes heavenly inspiration, uses practical tools for real-life marriages, and would be a great addition to your library.


Life and love can get messy, but with the right tools and support, your marriage can become simply beautiful.


Messy Beautiful Love is available TODAY in stores, and online.

What to Read Wednesday: America the Brave

**This post contains Amazon affiliate links**

Happy Wednesday!
Many moments of American history can be difficult for adults to comprehend, and articulate to young children. This What to Read Wednesday includes books which not only tackle true and difficult issues, but celebrate the strength, and courage that are found in American history. There are many ways for parents to introduce the many triumphs and challenges in America to our children. One fabulous method is to help young readers comprehend historical events through books that are on their reading level.

1. September 11, 2001: Then and Now (True Books: American History) by Peter Benoit. Many adults still lack the words to describe the atrocities which took place on this now famous date. September 11 will forever be etched into the fabric of the country’s memories, and will now appear in history books. Parents may wish to have tools with which to discuss this day, and the aftermath, with their young students. Author Peter Benoit found a way to describe the events, and celebrate the heroic acts of First Responders.

2. Fireboat: the Heroic Adventures of the John J Harvey by Maira Kalman.
This book involves the story of a retired New York City fire boat. The John J Harvey was launched in 1931, retired in 1994, and called back into service to assist in September 11 efforts. This powerful boat is a reminder that age is irrelevant when it comes to making a difference, and supporting heroic efforts.

3. The Story of Ruby Bridges by Robert Coles.
This is the powerful narrative of a brave little girl’s days as the first African American student in a New Orleans elementary school. She was only 6 years old when she had to face angry mobs of adults who were against her admission to the school. Parents and teachers can find many discussion points in this book including social justice, the importance of valuing education, and appropriate ways to view and treat others.

4. Child of the Civil Rights Movement by Paula Young Shelton.
Paula Shelton approaches the Civil Rights Movement with words and images that are easy for young readers to grasp, and celebrates the courage and faith of participants in the fight for equal rights. Parents and teachers will find many teachable moments, and discussion points.


Have you focused on any historical stories lately? I would love to know what books your young readers are loving this week.

Thanks so much for joining us for What to Read Wednesday!
