Disclaimer: I received this book from Bethany House in exchange for an honest review. All opinions, however, are 100% my own.
Growing up in my own fishbowl, I really felt like eyes were always on me. What I didn’t think about is that I wasn’t alone. Other PK’s (Preacher’s Kids) were most likely feeling the same things I was. Reading Lost and Found, I got to hear the story of Sarah Jakes, daughter of Bishop T.D. Jakes. (If you don’t know, he is a high profile minister and author…one my dad often mentions.)

In the almost diary-style text of Pilgrimage, Lynn Austin (Christian Fiction author) chronicles her journey through Israel. This journey came at a time in her life and faith that she felt dry and mindless. As she journeyed, she hoped to renew the abundance she expected Christians to feel in their daily lives.

In Sandie Freed’s “Letting Go of your Limitations”, readers will find ways to experience God’s transforming power in their lives. She takes a look at 11 limitations we put on ourselves and helps readers find ways to let go of those.
Disclaimer: I received a copy of Beverly Lewis’ The Secret Keeper from Bethany House in exchange for an honest review. All opinions, however, are 100% my own.
Beverly Lewis is one of those authors who never fails to disappoint me. Put one of her books in my hands and you won’t hear a peep from me until I am done (later that day/night). In her newest book in the “Home to Hickory Hollow” series, The Secret Keeper, Lewis definitely delivers.
Disclaimer: Chosen Books sent me a copy of What Your Dreams Are Telling You in exchange for an honest review. All opinions, as always, are 100% my own.
One of the things I’ve sort of hated to do since I was a kid was dream. I know. That sounds awful. Why wouldn’t one want to dream? Well, typically, when I dream, it usually has a way of coming true. I rarely dream, so when I do, I take heed. You see, I believe I’ve been blessed with a spiritual gift, visions (most of you know it as deja vu). Sometimes it can be painfully scary to dream, but it’s something I’ve been working through my entire life.
Disclaimer: I received a copy of “The Miner’s Lady” in exchange for an honest review. All opinions are 100% my own.
Oh, how I wish I had days to sit and read books like I did today. Isn’t this just a glorious moment?
Sure, it helps that my vacation days allow for this, and the fact that I get to review books like this are quite the added bonus.
Disclaimer: I received a complimentary copy of Tempted, Tested, True in exchange for an honest review. All opinions are 100% my own.
Life sure does throw us some interesting challenges, doesn’t it? Many of these challenges are temptations. For me, the temptation has always been two major things – spending money (although I am seriously frugal) and worrying too much about what everyone else thinks (I see that as a temptation to conform to society). These temptations can rob our souls of the things that God has in store for us, as is discussed in Arnie Cole and Michael Ross’ book Tempted, Tested, True.
Disclaimer: I received a complimentary copy of “A Woman’s Guide to Hearing God’s Voice” in exchange for an honest review. All opinions are 100% my own.
As a child (a child of a pastor), I always wondered how I’d hear God’s voice. I fully expected a big, booming noise to rain down from Heaven, telling me that everything was going to be okay. My parents couldn’t really explain it to me, but throughout the years I’ve learned to listen and hear it.
Disclaimer: I received a copy of “Undeniably Yours” in exchange for an honest review. All opinions, as always, are 100% my own.
I’ve never been one to be jealous of those with wealth beyond measure — you’ve heard of “More Money, More Problems” I am sure — but I’ll admit I was a tad bit jealous of Becky Wade’s Undeniably Yours leading lady Meg Cole. Daughter of a a wealthy oil tycoon, Meg is left with 51% of her father’s company when he passes away. She is left with the task of cutting out the fat of the company and keeping things running smoothly. The problem? She wasn’t really interested in this
Disclaimer: In exchange for the review below, I was sent a copy of a book. All opinions, as always, are 100% my own.
I can’t help it, I am a sucker for a good love story. Even if they are mildly predictable, Christian-themed romance novels (especially those based in the South) are my go-to books. Firefly Island by Lisa Wingate was no different.
