Review for The Encounter By Steve Arterburn

I picked up this one not sure how it was gonna be from Booksneeze as my latest book to read and review ! And my oppions of this book are my own !

The Encounter By Steve Arterburn is a pretty good fast paced quick read , I wasnt sure quit what I was expecting when I ordered this one but it was a pretty enjoyable read , Showing how Faith and Gods grace if you just believe and what forgiveness can do for a family

After years of feeling like his mother abandoning him as a child Jonathan Rush is sent in search of healing for his heart and anger problems and finds out that things are what they had appeared to be !! And along the way has appeared to bond with Mercy the persistent reporter who volenters to help him in his search for his mother Its a pretty good read ! I enjoyed it !

Review for Lonestar Angel Colleen Coble

I received this book to read and review and my oppions on it are mine alone

An small inside to the story , Five years ago Eden and Clay Larson's baby was stolen and never found. Eden blamed herself, Clay lost himself in work. Their young and rocky marriage ended. Or so Eden thought.

Now Eden's moved to a new town. She's found faith and is trying to rebuild her life. She's even dating again-a sweet guy who plans to marry her someday. But then Clay arrives out of the blue and delivers shocking news: they're still married. What's more, Clay has been searching for Brianna all this time. And he believes he's found her: their daughter is in Bluebird, Texas, at a youth ranch.


Ive had this book for a little while and was hesitent to start reading it because It is book 3 in a series and I didnt realize that when I ordered the book, I am sorry that I waited so long in starting the book tho because it was a really great page turning suspense novel , From page one of this book I was taken right into the story and really enjoyed reading it and seeing where the search for the Larsons Daughter took both Clay and Eden. I was truly pleased with this book and even tho it was book 3 in a series I am looking forward to reading the others and then this one again with the set , What more can you ask for a Mystery Love Story that ignights your heartstrings and reminds you of the miracles that God blesses us with Daily
I highly recommend this book and look forward to reading more of Colleen Cobles books ,
Thanks for stopping by and Have a Blessed Day !

The Bakers Wife By Erin Healy , Review

I have to say that I really did enjoy this book a great deal, I was drawn into it from the beginning and stayed that way all the way through the book , Who dont love a great Mystery read , Especially one that is Christian based ! Erin Healy has written a book that will draw you into the story line and takes you through several different twist and turns that will keep you wondering and guessing all the way until the end of the book ! I received this book form booksneeze and enjoyed reading and reviewing it ! But the opinions that I have about this book are mine and mine alone ! I will be recommending it to several people I think its a great read and really enjoyed it ! Here is a brief summery about what the book is about ! check it out I think you would enjoy it !

What doesn't kill you only makes you stronger, so why is Audrey weakening day by day?
It's been a tough year for Audrey's family. Her husband Geoff, a pastor, lost his job after a scandal rocked their congregation.
Audrey hasn't lost faith. She's held her family together. Their attempt to resurrect a failing bakery is an effort to heal the family wounds and restore their place in the community.
Late to the bakery one dim, foggy morning, Audrey turns into the intersection in front of the shop and strikes a vehicle that she can't see even after the collision settles. Emerging from her car into the fog, she discovers she's hit a motor scooter. There's no rider in sight. There's blood, though, so much that she slips in it, injuring her wrists.

Have a blessed and wonderful day and thank you for stopping by and checking out my review !

Letting Go by Michelle Sutton !

Its no secret that I love to read , I had entered on a blog for a chance to win Michelle Sutton's book Letting Go, And I won the book , And all I can say about it is WOW , This book covers the topics that so many Christians try to hide and not deal with and it hit home to me in so many ways , I started reading the book last night and I DID NOT want to put it down ,Michelle this is the first one of your books I have ever read and I am looking forward to reading Many Many more of them , I don't want to give to many spoilers about the book because I think its a must read for many And I am defiantly looking forward to reading book 2 in the series !! Gods amazing Love and giving us forgiveness even when we think that we arent worthy of his love or forgiveness !! But we are worthy and he is willing to give it to us all we have to do is trust him and ask him and let him guide us !! If ya get the chance pick it up and read it !! It is so worth it !! Here is a little peak at what the cover has on it

Letting Go - From an early age Diane Simmons was trained by her parents in the art of seduction, but she hates that about herself and wants to be loved for who she is, not what she looks like. Outwardly she appears to have everything a woman could want. She's a successful attorney with a perfect figure, yet she's miserable and alone and often attracted to the wrong men. She longs for a husband and a family of her own, but men lie to her. She's mystified, wondering why she can't find true love when it seems like she's doing everything right. After using fashion magazines and romance novels as guides for finding true love and continually failing, Diane gives up on romance after being lied to by yet another boyfriend. She finally realizes the world's view of love is totally unrealistic and distorted. She wants to find a better way, but she has no clue where to look.

Is a perfect example that in Life we have to let go and Let God !!

Have a Great Day !!

Book Review For With by Skye Jethani

The spine of this book has on it re imagining the way you relate yo God !
And that is a understatement to the way that Mr Jethani breaks down the differences in the many types of relationships that people tend to have with God , I have had a sort of hard time with this book in the sense that he is kind of confusing in some of his wording with in it , But once past those points , I do clearly see why we as a society have broken down our Own relationships with God , with in the church , life , community and in our own homes ,But even more important i see why he has said the things that he has because they do make sense we tend to put God on a shelf and pull him down when we need him , Or we find our selves when we are in trouble , hurting , in pain , when the country is in turmoil and our life doesn't seem to be going right that's when we also tend to pull God out and put him on display , When in all actuality we should Have God first in our hearts Daily , When we get up in the morning during the day and before we go to bed at night !! It should be a God thing all the time not just when we need him in our minds , Cause in our Hearts and Lives we always need him !! A quote from with in the book that really stood out to me was this --- Its by Os Guinness , First and foremost we are called to some one (GOD) not to be something (such as motherhood politics or teaching ) IN other words its not our circumstances or behaviors or radical decisions that give our lives meaning or hope, but our unity with God himself !!

Id recommend this book for those that want to read and deepen there understand and relationship with God Ive enjoyed reading it and look forward to sharing it with others

The oppions that I have posted about this book are my own ! Dont take my word for it read the book yourself and search within your soul to see where it takes you !

Strong Enough !

Sometimes you just have to step back and realize that you dont have to always be strong that its okay to admit that sometimes we arent Strong Enough to handle every situation in life all on our own !! Because in reality we really never have to handle or face any situation Alone at all ! There is a song by Matthew West that is Called Strong Enough , Here are the lyrics to is

Matthew West ....Strong Enough

You must, You must think I’m strong
To give me what I’m going through
Well forgive me, forgive me if I’m wrong
But this looks like more than I can do
On my own

I know I’m not strong enough to be
Everything that I’m supposed to be
I give up, I’m not strong enough
Hands of mercy won’t You cover me?
Lord, right now I’m asking You to be
Strong enough, strong enough
For the both of us

Well maybe, maybe that’s the point
To reach the point of giving up
‘Cause when I’m finally, finally at rock bottom
Well that’s when I start looking up
And reaching out

‘Cause I’m broken
Down to nothing
But I’m still holding on to the one thing
You are God
And You are strong when I am weak
I can do all things through Christ who gives me strength
And I don’t have to be strong enough
I can do all things through Christ who gives me strength
And I don’t have to be
Strong enough, strong enough

I hope that after reading these Lyrics that they touched you , and reminded you that you dont have to be strong enough to face any problem or situation and think that you are alone , God is there , Hes always there to guide us when we are down to help us up when we have fallen and even in the Good times when things are all okay hes still there as well ! Guiding , Protecting and Above all !! God Loves Us ! just as we are !!
I hope you have a blessed and wonderful weekend ! Thank you for stopping By and checking out my blog today ! Have a blessed and wonderful day !!

Review for Rumors Of God by Darren Whitehead and Jon Tyson

We have all had a time in our faith, where we question about why things are the way that they are , And Lots of times the questions seem to go unanswered , I have got to say that this book has made me do alot of my own soul searching and questioning and driving me to look for answers ,
A great read that I highly recommend to others and plan on sharing with several people that I know as well , This would be a great book for a Church group to do as a group study and it does have a Study Guide to go along with it in the back
Both Darren and Jon touch alot of topics with in the book and take you back and forth between biblical times and current day with situations that are close to the heart of so many , that leave many people , Hurt and searching for acceptance within there everyday life , Touching the bases of Church Hurt, Drugs , Disease Forgiveness ,just to name a few , God is not just a rumor in our lives hes there we just have to open our hearts and minds and let him in !

Rumors of God: Experience the Kind of Faith You've Only Heard About is a fantastic read. It's challenging, insightful and convicting, Pick it up and ;et it open up your heart :)

Disclosure of Material Connection: I received this book free from the publisher through the Booksneeze book review bloggers program. I was not required to write a positive review. The opinions I have expressed are my own.

Book Review For A Place Called Blessing

I started this book yesterday and finished it up just a few moments ago and had to share this review of this book , AMAZING is all I can say , Very touching and heartfelt with alot of emotions and feelings that so often as adults seem to be not thought about a child and the struggles and issues that they deal with in and out of the world and how they view them , This book is a must read ,That is heartfelt with many different emotions and feelings I am truly glad that I ordered this one to read and plan on passing it around for several others to read , This isnt one that as you start reading it that you think you will have it figured out right away , And I must say it didnt end like I thought that it would so I highly recommend this book to read It left me with tears in my eyes and brought alot of memories back to me as well of things in my own life ! Check it out its well worth it

Happy Summer Reading !!

Book Review for The Final Summit by Andy Andrews

I joined booksneeze so that I could read and review books , This is just my oppion on this book and I must say while i was hesitant to begin with reading it Once I did I couldn't put the book down ,
Mr Andrew draws you into time travel and pondering questions and answer that will make you stop and think seriously about what you are reading , The book is very well written and I found my self laughing a few times while reading it because of some of the things the character's which i have got to add are well known and a wonderful assortment of them drawn together so easily from Ab Lincoln to Washington Anne Frank , Gabriel and so many others that made the travel through this book extremely enjoyable and I highly recommend this book to others to read , I look forward to finding other books of Mr Andrews and sharing this one I personally think also that it could reach several different ages that would find it a great summer time read !! Check it out the book is really good !! Id love to know what others that read it think about it as well !! Have a Blessed and Wonderful Day
