The Least of These – Book Review

Last month we got together with a group of friends and watched Priceless. After the movie ended, we sat in silence for awhile trying to comprehend it all. 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…

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…

Almost Home – Book Review

Growing up, I was a bookworm. I carried a book with me wherever I went and would often get in trouble at school for reading when I was supposed to be doing school work. My favorite reads were vintage books from the forties through sixties, preferably those with ensemble casts of quirky characters. I read…

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…

Common Man, Extraordinary Call – Book Review

When I was growing up, my mother worked at a special education school, and when I was in college, I substitute taught at the school. I also have a number of friends with special needs children, so I'm somewhat familiar with the unique demands placed on the parents. However, I've only seen things from my…

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…
