Romancing the Bride – Book Review

Romancing the Bride book review

Saturday I decided I would take a day of relaxation and read a book. I started reading Romancing the Bride in the morning and spent most of the day curled up in my bed glued to the story. I couldn't stop reading until late at night when I finally finished it. This is so uncharacteristic…

Heaven Bound – Movie Review

Christian comedy is a risky endeavor. So often, the comedy either falls flat, or it leans towards the sacrilegious. Heaven Bound joins the ranks of the select few which are spiritually sound yet wildly hilarious. Heaven Bound is the story of Ted and Josie, a picture perfect couple. Ted is a successful dog food marketer…

What followed was a discussion of sex trafficking and what could be done to stop it. Since then, we've been sharing articles and resources on the subject.…

The Pilgrim’s Progress – Giveaway

Coming to theaters Easter weekend

Years ago when I taught children's church I fell in love with The Land of Far-Beyond,  a children's version of Pilgrim's Progress written by Enid Blyton. I read a chapter or two of the book each week and the children all enjoyed it as much as I did. Later, I decided to read the original…

Wild Hope – Book Review

I met Meghan Weyerbacher last year when we did a Summer of '67 Message, Meal, and a Movie event at her church. I knew she was a blogger who blogged about writing, but at the time, she wasn't an author. She was just a super sweet woman encouraging other writers to succeed. A few months…

Other Bodies – Book Review

I don't read many YA dystopian books, but the concept of Other Bodies piqued my interest, so I took advantage of the opportunity to review it. Other Bodies is set in futuristic Philadelphia, in a world where virtual reality is blurred with reality. Author Joel Ohman invites us on a journey with sixteen-year-old Hattie Martins…
