What’s New At Create With Joy?


Life In Season: Celebrate The Moments That Fill Your Heart & Home

It’s hard to believe that another year has come and gone and a new year is upon us – but the older we get, the faster time seems to fly. That’s why books like Life In Season by Vanessa Hunt and Heather Patterson – the sisters behind the popular blog, At The Picket Fence resonate with so many women: it’s filled with honest observations and inspirational insights about faith, family and life, along with seasonal DIY recipes and projects to engage your senses and creativity.

Life In Season is beautifully written and photographed and will not only please current blog readers but will capture the hearts of new readers as well. I loved reading their stories of God’s grace throughout the seasons of their lives and their ideas for sharing their creative gifts and hospitality with their friends – you will too!

Life In Season is available on Amazon.

I rate this book 5 out of 5 stars.

    I’m continuing to host the Travel the World in Books Reading Challenge so I will be doing that
    , the Classics Club and the Rory Gilmore Reading Challenge. Those are my big ones and I will probably sign up for a couple others. I really want to listen to more audio this year so I can meet my 2017 goal. I did really poorly with reading this year! Happy New Year!

  3. What a great gathering of book lovers!

  4. Happy happy 2017!! Looking forward to a year full of books, uplifting words, and beauty. 🙂

  5. Annie Kate says:

    After taking most of last year off from book links, it is so good to be back. Happy new year to you, and thanks for the link to the new years challenge.

  6. Thanks for including the New Year’s Resolution Reading Challenge. I always look forward to your book choices!

  7. Barrie says:

    I have heard about Life in Season before and was intrigued, so I am happy to read your recommendation! So excited too by all of these motivating book-challenges. The only 2 I knew about were the Goodreads challenge and the Book Riot Challenge.

  8. I think the New Year’s Resolution linkup is the one for me. I definitely plan to do a lot of personal development reading during the first quarter of the year. Thank you for all the ideas.

  9. Lisa Ehrman says:

    Nice link-up! Thanks for sharing at Together on Tuesdays 🙂

  10. Brandi Raae says:

    Thank you for linking up with Literacy Musing Mondays! I just love the cover of that book – so pretty. Plus that aqua/turquoise color is my favorite right now!

  11. I’m so pleased to re-discover The Book Nook! I really like the sound of Life in Season and am off to check it out now. I’m trying to read more this year and have set myself a goal of 24 (non work related) books! I’m sharing a review of Alea Milham’s wonderful cookbook, Prep Ahead Meals from Scratch. Thank you for hosting!

  12. Priya says:
