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…

Eat Live Thrive Diet

When I got the invitation to be a part of the launch team for Eat Live Thrive Diet: A Lifestyle Plan to Rev Up Your Midlife Metabolism, I got excited. Yes, please! The bold print on the back cover enticed me, "Turn Back the Scale and The Clock With This Inspiring Lifestyle Plan." What more…

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…
