Four Cups Review

I struggled getting through this book as there were things used in the author's guiding that just made me feel a bit uneasy and were hard for me to grasp. Using the four cups of wine used in Passover, he uses them as a metaphor of sorts for God's promises of a plan for our lives. I just think it's kind of kitschy and not sound but I'm not exactly a doctor of theology either. Some of the passages were encouraging but this might be a better suited read for those with more in depth theological knowledge and didn't feel like it was attainable understanding for even a Sunday School teacher possibly.

But I'm Not a Wicked Stepmother Review

But I'm Not a Wicked Stepmother!: Secrets of Successful Blended FamiliesBut I'm Not a Wicked Stepmother!: Secrets of Successful Blended Families by Kathi Lipp
My rating: 5 of 5 stars

I got this book, perhaps, a touch too late unfortunately. At the time I got my hands on it, I was a prospective step-mother for a very strong willed but bright and beautiful little one and the issues of trying to blend a family had already began to sink it's teeth into ripping our plans apart.

I still read through the book and it gave me the encouragement and tools I needed to keep trying my very best in the situation even though it was falling apart.

The good news is that I've been able to pass it along to a friend who is a new step-mother and she reports it has been of the utmost help to her.
