Getting Up From Being Down – Book Review

Guest Post By Rev. Clay Herd Getting Up From Being Down is a book by Dr. S. Todd Townsend. With him being a pastor, educator, and rap hip hop artist, I didn’t really know what to expect when I picked it up. I will admit my hesitation in this book. From the cover it looks…

Women of Joy Conference

As you've probably noticed, my focus has shifted from films to women's ministry. Summer of '67 was our final movie.

In January of this…

A Distance Too Grand – Book Review

I've been so busy recently, I've not allowed myself the luxury of reading fiction. I tend to lose myself in a good story, and that can be counter productive when I've got a lot going on. With that said, I was thankful to receive the invitation to review a new historic romance, my favorite genre,…

I know you're not supposed to judge a book by its cover, but I love creative titles and beautiful books.
