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…

Seeing Green – Book Review

In the midst of our crazy movie tour schedule, I signed up to review a couple of books. What was I thinking? However, once I picked up Seeing Green by Tilly Dillehay, I knew that busy as I was, I needed to find time to read this one. The subtitle of the book is "Don't…
