Scouting the Reaper {Review}

October 14, 2019
Image result for scouting for the reaper
I truly cannot remember the last time I have read a book with a set of short stories, I like short stories since they keep my attention, but I was unsure about Scouting the Reaper. Not a huge fan of the name of the book and I could not make sense of the cover art. Well, once you read the stories, the art makes sense. The book consists of eight short stories. I enjoyed most of them (really enjoyed the one about the truck driver and his load of penguins), a few left me just were not my cup of tea. What I enjoyed was just wondering where Jacob M. Appel got all these different ideas. Each story stood alone. Overall I enjoyed the book and it was a quick read. 

I received a copy of this book to review. All opinions are 100% mine. 

Jesus in Me {Review}

October 3, 2019
Jesus in Me: Experiencing the Holy Spirit as a Constant Companion
For as many books as Anne Graham Lotz has written, this is the first one that I have read. I loved the topic of the book "Experiencing the Holy Spirit as a Constant Companion" . Anne shared her knowledge of the Holy Spirit and shared very personal stories that showed Him at work in her life and how she experienced and continues to experience Him. 

I found the book inspirational, one of those books that you hold on to to refer back to or let a friend borrow from time to time. I love having thos...

Dreams That Never Were {Review}

October 3, 2019
Return to product information

Let me start by saying that when an author can write a book and you do not know when truth ends and fiction begins, that is one good author! When I started Dreams That Never Were, I did not read the blurb on the book. From the title and picture on the cover, I incorrectly assumed this was a book of non fiction. As I started, and started to get enthralled with the main character, Alex Hurley, I started to wonder how the author, Greg Messel, got such personal information. I then took a moment t...

Love Changes Everything {Review}

September 28, 2019
Image result for love changes everything
Micah Berteau has a gem of a book on his hands! He takes the bible story of Hosea and Gomer, husband and wife, and reminds us that the story is really about Jesus and us. He reminds us of just how much we are loved in a refreshing new way. 

I dog eared pages with quotes like, "Shame, guilt and condemnation are not of God. God does not give you any of those feelings. This is why we have to be so careful not to confuse condemnation and conviction. Once brings guild and share, while the other bri...

Something Needs to Change {Review}

September 20, 2019
Something Needs to Change: A Call to Make Your Life Count in a World of Urgent Need
Have you ever read a book that changes you? That is how I feel about Something Needs to Change by David Platt. The true story allows us to go along with David while he travels the Himalayan mountains. To hear first hand what he came across and how he was moved to action both lead me to tears and to frustration. She shares his own emotional struggles of faith and the questions you had. But in the end, he too was changed. To the point where he took a new job once he was back home.

I would highly...

Farewell My Life {Review}

September 12, 2019
Image result for farewell my life by cynthia sally haggard
I have to admit that when I received Farewell My Life I was a little worried. This is one big book! But as I started I realized that this would be a quick read because the author, Cynthia Sally Haggard, does a great job of bringing the characters to life. The story is based around the main character, Grace. When we first meet her she is 17 and to save she is niave would be an understatement. In fact at times I found myself getting frustrated at how little she knew, like she was a real person!...

Great Gift for Grandparents

August 30, 2019
Image result for dear grandchild this is me

Although I am not yet a grandparent, I have a unique situation in my home right now. My father-in-law moved in with us about a year ago. During this time he has been diagnosed with cancer and recently put on Hospice. I am happy to say he is doing well! During this transition time I saw the opportunity to review Dear Grandchild, This is Me. Although my children are grown, my father-in-law has very young grand kids. 

I was thrilled to get the book and be able to show it to him. There are many pa...

Delivered {Review}

June 7, 2019

Beth Moore is so popular and thinking back, this might be the first of her books I have ever read! Upon receiving Delivered I read that it was taken from another book she wrote, Get Out of that Pit. I am not sure which book is larger. Delivered is a quick read and has a lot of great takeaways. I did not find most of what she shared anything that I currently needed help with, but I know plenty of people that would find this book a great resource!

I received a copy of this book to review. All op...

Ever Faithful {Review}

May 26, 2019
Image result for ever faithful karen barnett
I had the privilege of reading Ever Faithful, a Vintage National Park Novel by Karen Barnett. This is the third in the series and I cannot wait to read the older two! The story, while fiction, allows you to step back into time to Yellowstone National Park in the 1930s. The story has both romance and mystery. Will they fall in love? Who is setting the fires?Karen Barnett is a wonderful author. I love when I pick up a book and do not want to put it down because I am bought in right away.

Finish First :{Revew}

May 16, 2019
Finish First

I grew up in the 1980's and remember Scott Hamilton well. I was excited to read his newest book, Finish First. I did not realize that this was more of a self help/inspirational book rather than an autobiography (which I love)!. Although Scott does weave in his own personal story in the book, his goal with this book is to inspire readers to push themselves more. While I grabbed a few nuggets of wisdom from this book, overall I felt it gave a lot of info and not a lot of practical steps. He eve...
