Mailbox Monday - June 16

Mailbox Monday is a meme started by Marcia of To Be Continued. Mailbox Monday is the gathering place for readers to share the books that came in their mailbox during the last week. It now has a permanent home at the Mailbox Monday blog.

Warning: Mailbox Monday can lead to envy, toppling TBR piles, and humongous wish lists.

Lots going on here. Year end events last week, and this week includes soccer tryouts, the Lil' Princess' final orchestra concert, and dance recital. My training went well last week and continues for at least the next two weeks, so blogging might be spotty.

Only one book arrived by mail this past week--thank goodness. I'm trying not to overwhelm my summer. This is for a review I'll be doing in July at The Book Connection.

What does it mean to be One Nation Under God? Our Founding Fathers believed it was more than a political slogan. Have we strayed from their vision? A Nation Under Judgment focuses on issues currently facing our nation including hunger, poverty, the environment and marriage. These and other issues are reviewed from both a Scriptural point of view and a social policy point of view. Readers are empowered to consider whether our nation is moving away from being One Nation Under God.

This is one I downloaded for my Kindle so that I could review it today at The Children's and Teens' Connection.

Book of Dreams sees Baby Raccoon’s parents use clouds to share their dreams of a better future. In the story, Mama and Papa use clouds to share their dreams about a healthy planet and vibrant future for Baby Ringtail. In the book, Baby Ringtail asks Mama and Papa, “Why is every cloud a different shape?” “Clouds are pictures in the sky that help us dream,” Mama Ringtail replies.

What arrived in your mailbox last week?


  1. My kids are grown but I remember how crazy the end of the school year can get. Hope it's fun! Enjoy the books.

  2. Thanks for visiting, Mary. We are having fun, but I'll be glad to head out on vacation soon.
