Christian Book Reviews For Fun and Faith-Building
Reading is what I do. The Bible, and just about any other (clean, preferably fiction) book I can get my hands on. With well over 2,000 books, I consider myself a Library-an. I’m here to share my favorites with you.
I approach almost everything that I read listening for God’s voice, learning about myself and others in the process. By reading fiction this way, I am able to make learning so much more fun.
And if learning isn’t fun, then there is something wrong, in my opinion! So I started this Christian Book Blog to share my Christian book reviews with anyone who is interested.
Who I Am
I’m Aryn, Stay-at-Home wife and mom to 2 boys.
If you are looking for encouragement, entertainment and spiritual growth, you have come to the right place!
Meeting the Needs of Bookish Christian Women, One Page at a Time is more than a tagline to me. It’s why I blog.
Bedtime is an EVENT around here. Snack, Teeth, Books, One more drink of water… I’m always on the lookout for another great bedtime Bible stories book to read with the boys. So when Celebrate Lit offered a couple on tour, I signed up! (I can’t wait to share the other one with you, but I agreed to wait until next month, so be on the lookout!)

Wondering if an old fashioned relationship would still work in the modern world? Do you want to see one lived out in all its old fashioned values? Well, Grace and Nolan have a few things to tell you. No. Not tell you. Show you. Because a good story shows the actions, relationships and feelings, instead of just telling you what happened. And Oh, Gracious is definitely a good story, with more than one wonderful old ... Read More
Today, let’s talk devotionals for homeschool moms. We get overwhelmed, and we don’t need to be! There is a certain pressure in life, that we’ve gotta do it all. Keep a well-run house, play with the kids, educate them both academically, spiritually, and with morals and life skills, take care of our husbands and extended families, and have a rich spiritual life at the same time. We feel responsible for maintaining balance, being ‘all-in’ where ... Read More
The Real Easter Story is so special. I don’t think we truly grasp just how privileged we are, to have such free access to forgiveness and love. And if we as adults struggle with wrapping our minds around it, then we need to think about our kids. The meaning of Easter for kids can be overwhelming. But, between the ages of 4-14, they are far more likely to understand and accept the truth, and run ... Read More
Life can be scary and full of stressful things, whether natural like hurricanes and tornadoes and viruses, or manmade like terrorist activities and wars. But the God who created the world HAS NOT ABANDONED US! I’ve always been fascinated by the many times in Scripture where something awful is happening and then, my 2 favorite words: But God (But The Lord) But Jesus Then the whole story changes. There is rescue. There is hope. A ... Read More
Middle school is a tough age. (And probably every age group after that, too…) There are physical changes happening, and expectations rise. Add in a cross-country move or something, and man, look out! When you’re going through all of that, you really need a friend. But what makes a true friend? How would you describe a true friend in 10 words or less? And then, the hardest question. Do you show any of the qualities ... Read More
End-times fiction is known for its fast-paced drama and is normally packed with geo-political intrigue. It can’t be easy to write, and it’s one of the most challenging to read, in my opinion. There are many who’ve tried, and succeeded, in making the end times come alive in the same way solid Biblical fiction authors can bring the past to life. It’s a precarious undertaking, to do justice to such a complex portion of the ... Read More
My kids are on a Bob the Builder kick right now, so ‘Muck to the Rescue’ is kind of stuck in my head. But the mantra that sticks best is “God to the Rescue!” He’s been at it a lot lately. Between the Hagar Bible study a couple of months ago, or the Bathsheba Battle, and coming to understand the power of God’s grace and favor to name a few ways I’ve seen God’s rescue ... Read More
Have you ever considered much about Noah after the Flood? That Noah might have still been alive during the events of the Tower of Babel timeline? I can’t say that I’ve ever put those two things together, myself. I found this week’s book intriguing for that reason. In my mind, Noah ends at Genesis chapter 9, and I never calculated how many years later the Tower of Babel timeline fit in. The two genealogies in ... Read More
Do you get so caught up in your own concerns, just living life, that you don’t take any time or thought for observing people? Would you love to be able to slow down and help your kids be interested in those around you? Well, Bartholomew knows how to be a good observer and he’s more than happy to share what he’s learned! He shares his experience riding the subway, and observing people on a regular ... Read More
As a voracious reader, I come across amazing book and non-book resources from time to time. I enjoy collecting them to share with you. If I really like them, I might become an affiliate, but no matter what, I won’t recommend anything I don’t have personal experience with or think is wonderful. You can read my full disclosure here.
The women over at Faithful Finish Lines are incredibly encouraging. There are several free Challenges, an amazingly supportive Facebook group and then… Then there’s the other resources! Connect the will and the spiritual aspects of your health and see great things happening!
