"Left To Tell"

It's Christmas time (I know I don't need to remind you yet again!) which means stress (of course), food, candy, family, giving, and for some reason there is always lots of crafts too. I was all ready to post an easy craft for you today but at the last minute changed my mind. There are enough blogs out there with tutorials for crafts, not to mention the few we've done already here on The Best Me. But just in case you are really into that I suggest THIS. I made three of the yarn trees in one night and they are a really cute addition to my Christmas decorations.

I changed my mind about what I was going to post after I finished reading this amazing book over the weekend. As many of you know, or will soon learn, I love to read. It's a passion of mine that stems from (I assume) having my mom read to my brothers and sisters and me so much when we were little.

The book is called "Left To Tell". It's a true story written by a women who survived the Rwanda Genocide. It's the story of her survival (and the death of a million people!) and how she turned herself over to God completely to keep her alive. It was an exciting story while also spiritually uplifting. It was a great read for this special time of year when our thoughts turn more closely to Jesus Christ.

If you are not into reading I would say read it anyway! But if you really aren't into reading then I highly recommend it as a gift for anyone who does like to read.

And after you've checked out the book be sure to check out Sew Mama Sew today. She is hosting a huge giveaway day!
