Marnie Swedberg

I first discovered Marnie Swedberg when I watched one of her teleconferences. From there, I learned about Christian Women Speakers and was excited to sign on as speaker. The longer I know Marnie, the more I'm amazed at all that she does. She's the author of thirteen books. She travels around the globe speaking on…

When Life Doesn’t Match Your Dreams – Book Review

Let me begin by saying that the subtitle for When Life Doesn't Match Your Dreams is "Hope for Today from 12 Women of the Bible". Honestly, for me, the subtitle better expresses the book than the title. I love reading about women of the Bible, and this is a good one. So don't be misled…

Gospel of Matthew – Book Review

Alabaster company

I honestly wasn't sure what to expect when I signed on to review Gospel of Matthew, and when it arrived in the mail, I've got to admit, I sat and stared at it for awhile, trying to figure out exactly what it was. You see, it's nothing like any other book I've seen. The text…

Day-by-Day Chronological Bible – Review

I have many Bibles - traditional and modern translations, study Bibles, devotional Bibles, and women's Bibles. Each one is different. The Day-by-Day Chronological Bible is perhaps the best version I've seen for filmmakers. Obviously, from the name, I knew that the Bible would be arranged in chronological order, which I've always liked. What I wasn't…

30 Days to Understand the Bible – Book Review

I remember many years ago when I was a teen, our church hosted a Walk Thru the Bible event. What fun we all had learning together mnemonic devices and other tricks to help us work our way through the books of the Bible and remember what they were about. 30 Days to Understanding the Bible…

Throughout the book are beautiful scripture verses designed by graphic…

CSB (in)courage Devotional Bible – Review

I love devotional and study Bibles, especially those specifically designed for women. I have a stack of them, each with their own unique slant. The CSB (in)courage Devotional Bible, though, is completely different than any of my others. First, the design of the Bible is pretty. It's feminine and elegant looking with pastel designs around…

The stories are told with speech bubbles that are essentially…

CSB Study Bible For Women – Book Review and Highest Recommendation

I love Bibles, especially study Bibles, so I was excited to get an invitation to review the CSB Study Bible For Women. It is now my new favorite Bible. First, the Bible is beautiful. The cover is a lovely textured fabric in turquoise and cream with gold text. It just feels quality. As soon as…

Book Review – 365 Bible Answers for Curious Kids

365 Bible Answers for Curious Kids book review

These past two months have been busy with requests to review books and movies, but as a former children's church director, I always enjoy checking out children's products. 365 Bible Answers for Curious Kids is written as a devotional journal for children on their own, but would also make a great resource for children's teachers…
