Book Review: Pocket Full Of Seeds

October 20, 2017 No Comments

I received this book in exchange for my honest review
 
Before I had my kids, I loved to read. It was an escape for me, and I spent many hours lost in books. But now it seems that there just aren’t enough hours in the day. And when I do get a quiet moment to myself, I find that I spend time doing whatever I can to cross off the many projects on my never ending lists, rather than picking up a book.
So what I have found works best for me are short books or books that can I can read a couple of sentences here or there and come back to it when I have time. One of my favorite things to read now are devotional books. They are full of little nuggets of peace and inspiration, just when you need it.
Pocket Full of Seeds by Debbie Johnson, does no disappoint. This book is a daily devotional, of sorts, there is a little quote, poem, story or idea for each day of the year. None of them take more than 4 or 5 minutes to read through, yet they get you thinking. I try to pick it up and read through each days though every morning, but sometimes it bedtime before I am able to get to it, and it is a great way to start or end the day.

Yes, this book is meant to last the entire year, but I read through each day, for this review. I want to share a few of my favorite “seeds” with you today. I do plan to continue reading each day, there is no way I am going to remember them all from one read through. Plus, I think books like this are the type you can come back to over and over again, and the same thoughts can be applicable in every situation. You may even find a story or thought to apply to or comfort you more in different times of your life.
In January, the seeds are all about taking action. On day is titled “Act Like the First Lady” and features this quote from Michelle Obama.  ” Don’t ever underestimate the importance you can have because history has shown the courage is contagious and hope can take on a life of its own”— What a great way to start the year off!
On day in the July seeds, talks about sacrifice and how that can mean something different to everyone. Debbie shares poses the question “What does the word “Sacrifice” stir up for you”. I love prompts like this that get me thinking, and help me improve on myself.
In October, the seeds are about sharing and showing your ideas and abilites. As a blogger and advocate, every day in this month really hit home for me. One that really stuck out to me was a day titled “Shun Excuses”. Debbie shared a story and this quote “To rush into explanations is always a sign of weakness”-Agatha Christie. Wow, what an impact! How often do we often feel the need to justify or excuse away our thoughts, rather than just own them. Such good food for thought!
I don’t want to give away all the good stuff, and trust me, there is SO much in this one. I would recommend it to any of you, and with the holidays fast approaching, it would make a great gift!

  • When I picked "Be Brave" as my word for this year, I didn't realize I was asking the universe for an actual challenge. (And based on what I've gathered from many friends, I wasn't alone)  But, as the year comes to a close, I feel like I met my goal. And while there were some wonderful moments of this year, like starting a new job, growing my breastfeeding support group, and becoming an aunty twice more. But my anxiety was worse than it's ever been (admitting that isn't fun) and watching my mother in law battle brain cancer and Grandpa fight through a massive heart attack, has been hard. Needless to say, I'm ready for a new start with these little humans and their daddy.  See ya later 2018 👋

2019, please be kind to us 🙏

  • My top 9 of 2018 was an honest look at Motherhood. This was the year I found my voice, took opportunities outside of my comfort zone, and truly met my goal of being brave. I'm so glad and grateful you are all following along. Excited to see what 2019 has in store. Happy New Year!

  • I have been pretty open about my struggles with anxiety and depression. It's not fun or easy, and I often wish it wasn't part of my story, but it is. And through sharing, I can only hope that even one of you feels less alone. If you need a little extra support, I share daily affirmations in my stories every morning, I hope you'll follow along. 
Here's to today being a good day, even in it's imperfections ❤️ #musingsonmotherhood #thisismotherhood #this_is_postpartum #dailyaffirmations
  • Date night with my favorite guy in my favorite booties. These seriously go with any outfit and they are so comfy! 
What's your favorite date night activity?

  • Back to reality today and totally experiencing a holiday "hangover" We will be cleaning out and choosing toys and clothes to donate, since the kids got new stuff for Christmas. It's important to me that my kids be involved in this process, as it is their stuff and I want them to learn the value of service. Not taking our decorations down yet, I'm not ready to let the twinkle lights go ✨✨ #musingsonmotherhood #lighttheworld
  • Wishing you a very Merry Christmas. May your heart and home be full of love ❤️🎄
