Book Review: My Mother's Quilts
Welcome to another book review here at Createyou86. This product will always hold a special place in my heart, not because I myself am a quilter, but my mother is, and throughout my life she has made several quilts for myself, my friends, and other family members. These quilts all hold a special place in her heart because of the hard work, and love that goes into making each one, and how special you feel when receiving one. Upon seeing the cover to this book, my mother immediately wanted to read it/check it out simply because it had a quilt on it.
This particular book shares the story of Ramona Richards, and conversations based around quilting with her mother, and other family members throughout history. Each chapter begins with a small scripture, and ends with a moral. The chapters are short, and easy to read making this book a quick read. At the end of each chapter is a prayer starter which could also be used as a daily devotional. The photos in this book are beautiful, and vibrant. Some of the quilts mentioned in this book are more than 100 years old. Each reading provides a lesson, and encouragement from the faithful women who crafted them.

Book Review: Bible Belle's Esther
Welcome to another book review at Createyou86. This book is an awesome children's book for anyone's child boy or girl who might be struggling with patience.
Bible Belles’ The Adventure of Rooney Cruz is an original children’s series that presents real life heroes like never before. The series highlights five superhero women of the Bible: Hannah, Esther, Abigail, Ruth and Deborah.
This book is setting out to present women in the Bible in a way that has never been done before. The goal is to have children connect with them and find out what being truly beautiful is all about. The point of this series is to encourage children to remember their names, their stories, and how special they are. The pictures in this book are as vibrant as the cover, and the message is even greater.
From someone who specifically struggles with patience, i definitely would have learned a thing or two from this book as a child. Even reading it as a 30 year old woman i picked up a few ideas. This 29 page book will keep your child entertained, and enthralled.

Welcome to another book review here at Createyou86. This book was interesting for me to read because it is all about boys becoming men, and how mother's may have more trouble raising boys than girls because well....we are girls, and we understand them better.
Not yet being a mother myself i got some great insight from Dr. Emerson Eggerichs. I agree, and disagree with Dr. Eggerichs method. He believes that while showing love is important to a son, showing him respect is the key to his heart, and is what will transform the mother, and son relatioship.
I agree that mother's should show their children respect regardless of gender, but the children should also be first, and foremost respectful of the parent who not only gave them life, but is raising them in their household, with their money, under their roof, and providing for them anything that they might need (in most cases).
The first chapter of this book is full of mother's stories about how they have connected with their father's, and how the mother doesn't feel the connection because she connects better with her daughter. This book explains how listening, and having an interest in your son's life through mutual respect can help build the mother, and son bond.
I woud recommend this book to anyone mother or father who might be struggling to understand their young boy, or who wants to build a greater parental bond.
