The romance has just enough history to spring to life in the midst of the tension of the moment. The mission to save the tigers, and the peek into their world as highly prized ‘commodities’ is completely fascinating. And the giveaway offered this time is Nice!

ArynFaith, Christian Nonfiction8 Comments

Forever Loved, Eve’s Story is one book I won’t soon forget. I am a big fan of Biblical Fiction as you probably already know, and this one having a definite devotional feel to it makes it even better.

Christian Children's Books full of life lessons for the whole family

Hermie and Friends by Max Lucado is a cute children’s series of books and shows that make the truths of the Bible practical and accessible for kids of all ages. The way Hermie and friends characters interact and learn the necessary lessons can bring home the point to kids and parents/grandparents at the same time. It is always amazing to me, how God works to multiply His message. Isaiah 55:11 says: “so My word that comes from My mouth will not return to Me empty, but it will accomplish what I please and will prosper in what I send it to do.” I always get excited when I see or experience that playing out.

Contentment: God With Us

Contentment. Satisfaction. At Peace. You keep hearing about Contentment in the Bible. About Contentment in life. You’re told to be content with what you have. But what exactly does that mean, and how do you get there? I read a book recently that really brought this concept front and center, and not because the characters were content. They weren’t discontented exactly, but they had an interesting take on the whole concept. That caused me to do some thinking, and some research. So let’s look at this together. And if you’re here before mid July, there’s a nice Giveaway at the … Read More
