Reluctant Belle – Book Review

I wanted to like Reluctant Belle. I really did. But I'm afraid it just didn't work for me. Storyline Joelle Daughtry, the impoverished Southern belle, has been helping her sisters in their quest to turn the run-down family plantation into a resort hotel after the close of the Civil War. But by night and under…

He Reads Truth – Bible Review

Guest post by Rev. Clay Herd. This Father’s Day I have the joy to review the He Reads Truth Bible. I will admit, because of the quick turnaround time of receiving the Bible and having to write the review, I did not get to drive with this thing very long. Keeping that in mind, let’s…

Emanuel – Documentary Movie Review

Charleston churches

It wasn't until we started making the film festival rounds that I ever watched documentaries. And even though I've seen some great ones, and was looking forward to watching this one, as the movie began, I found myself thinking of the theatrical release and wondering how many people would go see this documentary about the…

The Women Who Met Jesus – Book Review

The Women Who Met Jesus book review

As you  may have noticed, I have a slight obsession with women in the Bible. I love to not only read their original stories in the Bible, but also to read Bible studies and other books that feature different biblical women. The Women Who Met Jesus: New Testament Stories of Lives Transformed by the Author…

Ever Faithful – Book Review

Ever Faithful cover photo

I love historical fiction that takes place in real locations, especially if I've been to that location. While I've never been to Yellowstone National Park where Ever Faithful takes place, author Karen Barnett brought it to life in such a way that it definitely made me want to visit. Ever Faithful is # 3 in…

Jesus Christ – His Life and Mine – Book Review

Jesus Christ: His Life and Mine

The tagline of this debut book by author R. Christian Bohlen is "The Story of Jesus and How It Applies to Us in the Twitter Era". Unusual concept. What does Jesus and Twitter have in common? Bohlen is a ministry leader as well as a program manager to Fortune 500 companies. His objective with this…

Book Brush is an image and video creator geared specifically for bloggers and authors. It's very limited in what it does, but what it does…

The Heart of a King – Book Review

The Heart of a King by Jill Eileen Smith

Biblical fiction is a fairly new genre for me. For years, I avoided it because it just seemed weird to fictionalize the people from the Bible. Then I discovered Lois T. Henderson, and a whole new world opened up to me. I was still picky, though. I wanted to make sure that the author did…

Joyful Surrender – Book Review

Joyful Surrender

I'm familiar with Elisabeth Elliot, but I'm not sure that I've ever actually read one of her books before. I expected Joyful Surrender: 7 Disciplines for the Believer's Life to be old fashioned and spiritual. It was. In a good way. I'm afraid that I started reading this book somewhat halfheartedly. I was skimming through…

Chonda Pierce – Unashamed – Movie Review and Giveaway

Chonda Pierce Unashamed

I'm not a fan of stand up comedy. I'm not sure why, but whenever anyone tries to make me laugh, I rarely do. If Chonda Pierce - Unashamed was merely a stand up routine, I wouldn't care that much for it. However, this is more than a comedy routine. Intermixed with Chonda's stage show is…
