And What Will You Do On The Day Of Judgement

This book is fascinating.  It kept my attention from the first page until the last.  I cannot stress enough how strongly I feel that this book and the author’s last book, The Harbinger, are on your immediate reading list.  Read it, then pass it along to friends, family, co-workers.

Bethlehem Road: A Guide to RuthBethlehem Road: A Guide to Ruth by Michael Whitworth

My rating: 4 of 5 stars

“Out of the immense moral darkness of the Judges period comes a story of romance, redemption, and hope. The tale of Ruth has inspired countless generations. But Ruth isn’t the star in this romantic drama; center stage belongs to God and his providence. Naomi and Ruth traveled the Bethlehem Road—one of famine, abandonment, grief, and loss—unaware that the Lord had gone before them to redeem their heartache.”

The Impressionist

I don’t often read fiction, but the title of this little book intrigued me.  Is it fiction?  It says so…  but it’s really so much more.

Demystifying the Book of Revleation

This is an amazing book that I had the privledge to read. I would strongly urge you to consider reading and studying this book.  I will let the review speak for itself…


The Book of Revelation Made Clear: A Down-To-Earth Guide to Understanding the Most Mysterious Book of the BibleThe Book of Revelation Made Clear: A Down-To-Earth Guide to Understanding the Most Mysterious Book of the Bible by Tim LaHaye

My rating: 5 of 5 stars

“The Bible’s final book, Revelation, can seem intimidating or downright impossible to comprehend, even for serious students of the Scriptures. Filled with complex imagery, vivid depictions of violence, and challenging spiritual references,, Revelation is often set aside by readers in favor of more straightforward, easier-to-digest biblical material. Yet the capstone of the canon need not remain a mystery.

The Singing Quilt

Every once in a while a book comes along that touches your heart.  The Singing Quilt by Kathi Macias is one such book.  It is not often that I read fiction, but I have to say that I did not want this book to end.  I wanted to know more about the lead charecter… I wanted to follow along with her new life in Christ.  Sadly though… the book came to an end.

Below is my public review of this book

The Princess Within

The Princess Within for Teens: Discovering Your Royal InheritanceThe Princess Within for Teens: Discovering Your Royal Inheritance by Serita Ann Jakes

My rating: 4 of 5 stars

“It’s time to get ready for the ball. Girls of all age want to feel like Cinderella at the ball. But, maybe o feel more like Cinderella before the ball – overlooked, inadequate, hurting, maybe even used and abused. Sometimes it’s heard to fell beautiful, in God’s eyes or your own, when something or someone has robbed you of your inner beauty.”

From time to time, I will pick up a book that isn’t totally relevant to my life or me at the time. Such was my thoughts on this book – The Princess Within for Teens – Discovering Your Royal Inheritance… for full disclosure – note that I am a 50+-year-old woman.

However, I did enjoy reading this book. Yes some things are different than when I was a teen – social media, etc. That being said, the message of this book is relevant. I do remember feelings of rejection, being hypercritical of myself, knowing that I was made for more, but not knowing how to get there.

So, in truth, perhaps a few peripheral things have changed, but the thought process of the Princess within each of us really hasn’t.

The Top 8 Things to Think About

Breathe

The news is negative. The enemy is pulling out all the stops because his time is short. Christians need to take a deep breath and focus on the things of the Spirit. (CreationSwap/Paul Burger)

Look at your life. Life is hard. Look at the news. In our fallen, sinful world, evil swirls about like a violent dust devil, clouding the air of absolute truth and muddying the waters of pure grace that flow to eternal life through Christ Jesus. Continue reading

Deliver Us From Evil

I just finished a book called: “Deliver Us From Evil: A Pastor’s Reluctant Encounters with the Powers of Darkness” by Don Basham.

This was a very interesting book.  I had not heard of Pastor Basham prior to this.  I used to think,  like the Pastor originally thought, that evil cannot invade and reside within a Christian… as Light and dark… Good and evil cannot coexist in the same place.  I don’t know why I thought that, I guess it’s just what I’ve been taught along the way.  I do/did however believe that Christian can be influenced by evil.  That satan and his minions can, and do, influence our thoughts and behaviors.  Continue reading

Lost and Found

Lost & Found – Finding HOPE in the Detours of Life by Sarah Jakes

What a remarkable story!!!  I was captivated by this book from the first page… and by the end, I was in awe of the wisdom of this young woman.

While I have not experienced any of the circumstances that Ms. Jakes has, I somehow found myself in this story.  Perhaps because I too thought that God had so given up on me…  that He was just soooo tired of giving me just one more chance to “get it right”.  In this book, I found the words to my own song: Continue reading
