The goal behind this hop is to promote family-friendly literature and activites. We welcome all book related posts such as book reviews or discussion of great activities to do with your family in relation to the books that you have read. Any genre is welcome. Just remember to feature family-friendly books. We reserve the right to remove posts to books with excessive vulgar language or sexual content.

To celebrate the kickoff of this hop, we partnered with two great book bloggers to give away five awesome books!  Our book giveaway partners and the books they are giving away are:


Welcome! Melissa from My Recent Favorite Books.  Her giveaway book is a wonderful family-friendly romance!

Melissa’s social media sites are : Facebook, Twitter,  Pinterest, Google+ and Bloglovin.


This heart-warming story is being made into Hallmark Movie!

Plot Summary:  Harry Mills is a guardian angel on a mission: help twenty-four-year-old Addie Folsom get her life back on track—and, if the right moment strikes, help her find love. Read more about this book at Debbie Macomber’s site.





CaroleProfileAlso joining us is Carole from the Power of Words. You can follow Carole on Pinterest, Twitter,  and Facebook. She will be giving away the book which she reviewed on her blog here :


An empty nest has Ingrid Christiansen dreading the upcoming holidays, but her husband, John, couldn’t be more excited about this new season of life. He even has a surprise trip abroad  planned. He’s sure she’ll love it. What’s more romantic than Christmas in Paris?

Before he can stop her, however, Ingrid agrees to spearhead a major church project. Then their faithful dog, Butterscotch, needs emergency surgery, draining their savings. And then—because  disasters strike in threes—an unexpected guest arrives, dredging up old hurts.

As a beautiful blanket of snow transforms the north woods into a winter wonderland, a deep chill settles over John and Ingrid’s marriage. With the holidays fast approaching, their only hope of keeping their love evergreen depends on turning the page on the past and embracing a new chapter of their future.

Your hosts, Mary and Ashley are giving away these books:



This small  book, 365 Pocket Prayers for Mother by Christian authors and mothers, Amie Carlson, Karen Hodge, and Erin Kelley Marshall, is packed with quick prayers tied into the Word of God that you can meditate on and let sink into your soul.  Tyndale House Publishers provided me with a copy of this book which I will mail to the winner. 🙂

You see more in my review of this book here.
