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…

We Hope for Better Things – Book Review

From the moment I picked up We Hope for Better Things and started reading it, I knew it was something special. I was hooked from the very first page, and the more I read, the harder it was to put it down. We Hope for Better Things is the story of three women from different…

Ellie Claire Journals – Book Review

After taking a month off from blogging, I'm excited to jump back in with a review of three of the most beautiful journals I've ever seen.     Faith & Lettering is perfect for anyone wanting to explore their creativity through journaling, hand-lettering, and note-taking.

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…

A Silken Thread – Book Review

I love historical fiction, especially stories that are told from multiple viewpoints and that take place in the South during the turn of the century. A Silken Thread hits all those points. A Silken Thread focuses on Laurel Millard, a young woman who's eager to fall in love and start a family, but her older…

Indivisible – Movie Review

In case you haven't noticed, this is the season for military-themed faith-based films. As pastor Gary Olson of Rolling Hills Community Church observed, Unbroken: Path to Redemption, Summer of '67, Interview With God, God Bless the Broken Road, and now Indivisible all deal with war. From the moment I saw the trailer, I knew I…

Young Whitt – Book Review

Since my son-in-law, Clay Herd, grew up with Adventures in Odyssey, I knew he'd enjoy the chance to read and review Young Whit, an Adventures in Odyssey chapter book. I was right. He did enjoy it. Guest Post by Rev. Clay Herd. As a fan of Adventures in Odyssey, I was excited to review this…

Thirsty for More – Book Review

As soon as I saw the title of the book, and then underneath it, "Discovering God's unexpected blessings in a desert season", I knew I wanted to read Thirsty for More. Even though I'm not going through the desert right now, I know I will again in the future, and I want to be prepared. Not…

Little Women – Movie Review

It's been a while since I've read Little Women, but it's my favorite book from that time period, so I was eager to see what a modern retelling in movie form would look like. The movie does a good job of capturing the essence of the story and transferring it to a contemporary setting. Many…
