Breaking Cover {Review}

March 16, 2018
Image result for breaking cover

When I heard about Breaking Cover, I was very intrigued to read it. I have never read a true story about someone who worked for the CIA. The fact that it was a woman, who is a Christian, made me even more curious. I loved the beginning of the book, learning more about Michelle Assad and she ended up working for the CIA. 

The story them moves into the years that she and her husband Joseph worked in the Middle East, right in the middle of war. I have to admit that those chapters left me feeling uncomfortable. This was their reality and she shared it in a very real way, but I wanted to learn more about what God was doing in their lives.

As the story goes on, we see them both quit the CIA and learn how God orchestrated them helping 149 Christians find refuge in Slovak. By far, for me, that was the best part of the book.

If you love stories about how God moves his people, and do not mind hearing about war, this would be a book I would recommend.

I received a copy of this book to review. All opinions are 100% mine. 

Be the Hands and Feet {Review}

February 7, 2018
Be the Hands and Feet

I have read a few of Nick Vuijicic's books prior to Be the Hands and Feet and have really enjoyed then. I love the idea of helping others and was excited to see a book focused on that topic. I do have to admit that the book started out a little slow for me, but I quickly found the chapters very relevant and moving. He allows others to share in their own words throughout the book, and the impact that has on the stories of these individuals, is amazing.

Throughout the book he shares different wa...

Same Kind of Different As Me {Review}

January 25, 2018

Where has this book been in my life? Until I heard of the movie, I was not aware of this book and I am so sad that I did not know about it sooner. The book was so moving and inspiring. It is written by two people and I loved the back and forth. Some chapters by one, some by the others and how you get to read the same event seen by two different people. They did such a good job of remember their amazing wife and friend and letting us know that there is hope for the homeless, if they really wan...

Praying the Scriptures For Your Adult Children {Review}

January 13, 2018
Praying the Scriptures for Your Adult Children: Trusting God with the Ones You Love
Being the mom to a 25 and 21 year old, I could not wait to get my hands on this book. I definitely see this book as being one that sits on your shelf and you pull it out when you need it, more of a resource guide. It is not a book to just sit and leisurely read and then get rid of. There were chapters that I skipped, because they did not pertain to my children at the moment, but knowing I have this great resource when I need it, is amazing. I actually put it on my bookshelf at work, since I w...

The Chalk Man {Review}

January 1, 2018
Image result for the chalk man
It has been awhile since I have read a really well written suspense novel. The Chalk Man was just that! Set in England in the 1980's, as well as current day, the author, C.J. Tudor does a wonderful job of taking us back to the summer of 1986 and the drama that unfolded, while allowing us to see what is happening present day, without missing a beat!

Each day when I had to put the book down, I could not wait to have time to be able to pick it up again and continue along the journey to find out w...

Faithful Finance {Review}

I have to admit, when I first picked up this book I thought it was going to be a Dave Ramsey want to be book. Although I have never read a complete Dave Ramsey book, I have visited his website and know what his philosophy is and his steps towards saving money.  So yes, I was skeptical.

But Emily Stroud, got my attention right away! I loved that she lets you know she cares more about you spiritually, but she has been blessed with the ability to assist others with their financial lives and wants...

Perennials {Review}

December 22, 2017
Perennials (ebook)

Before you assume this is a book about gardening, let me assure you it is a wonderful novel by Julie Cantrell. I had heard her name before, but this was the first book I have read by her. Is it ok to admit that I picked it because I like flowers and the cover was pretty? Well, I did!

So, when I first started it I was a little worried. I am a pretty basic type of gal, and the book was very descriptive, giving you lots of details, but at the beginning I was side tracked by all the extra words. L...

Fire on the Track {Review}

December 8, 2017
Image result for fire on the track

I get so geeked out with true stories so when I came across Fire on the Track, I could not wait to learn about the first women Olympians, in particular those that entered track and field events. The author, Roseanne Montillo, did such a good job of letting us into the lives of these ladies, giving such details of events and surroundings that you felt like it happened yesterday, not in the 1920's. The book covers 3 Summer Olympics and the ladies that participated. If you like to learn about hi...

How to Fix a Broken Record {Review}

November 27, 2017
How to Fix a Broken Record

To tell the truth, I decided to read this book because the title caught my attention. I loved the idea of having an inspiration book that could also be fun! I had not heard of Amena Brown before, but this is not her first book. How to Fix a Broken Record was such an amazing read! Amena is so honest in sharing her life with us and then connecting the dots and allowing these things to be life lessons, not just for her, but for us too!

If you love music and could use a little inspiration, I would...

Truth Doesn't Have a Side

November 3, 2017
Truth Doesn't Have a Side

This is not the type of book I normally read, and I still cannot say why I chose it, but I am so glad I did! Truth Doesn't Have a Side is the story of Dr. Bennet Omalu. He is the doctor who first discovered CTE in NFL players. What I love about the book is that it does not start off with stats and science, but instead we get to know Dr. Omalu. How we grew up in Nigeria, how he got to be a doctor in the U.S. We get to learn more about his personality and then he introduces us to the faithful d...
