Book Review: When You Need to Move a Mountain

When You Need to Move a Mountain book review

As I prepared to lead our women's prayer retreat, I read dozens of prayer books including When You Don't Know What to Pray by Linda Evans Shepherd, so I was excited when I got the invitation to review her newest book. I like both books, but this one really resonates with me. When You Need…

Heart Wisdom – Book Review

In March I joined Advanced Writers and Speakers Association (AWSA). I wasn't initially sure how much I would get out of the group but have been so pleasantly surprised by all the connections I've made already. I'm loving learning about the other members' books and projects. One of those is Heart Wisdom, the latest in…

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…

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…

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…

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…
