It’s #ChristianBooktober 27th, and we have a Citizenship Bible Study for you today! Leaders, Nations, and God. This is the 3rd Study by Marta Greenman we’re spotlighting here this month.

How To Overcome Depression With Science and Scripture

ArynFamily, Faith, Health and FitnessLeave a Comment

For #ChristianBooktober 25th, let’s learn some strategies to Overcome Depression. These strategies come from science and scripture. This book is on tour with Celebrate Lit. I’ve not read it, but I know it’s an important subject, and I am happy to spotlight it here. Overcome Depression sounds like a practical guide that points to scripture, and the Savior, and would be extremely helpful! I’m very curious about the author being a Certified Laughter Leader. After my experiences with laughter, I went digging into exactly what does the Bible say about Laughter, and have shared my findings (and my story). About … Read More

Welcome to #ChristianBooktober, Day 13! I hope you are enjoying this as much as I am! Today we’ll be talking about the new Acts420Now Bible study by Marta E Greenman.

I am grateful Celebrate Lit allows me to share spotlights on books I wish I could tour! This one intrigued me enough to buy a copy, though, and I am looking forward to digging in!

Haven of Rest trusting God in the Midst of Trials

#ChristianBooktober 2019, Day 2: Haven of Rest. If you’re looking for a great example of trusting God in the midst of trials, read this book! This bit of Biblical fiction is very believable, funny, sad and makes you think. As part of #ChristianBooktober, Haven of Rest is one book that I chose to purchase myself. I did not receive anything from Celebrate Lit, as I did not officially sign up for the tour. All thoughts are my own, and I truly enjoyed it! (Bet you would never have guessed I picked a new Biblical Fiction Author for the first book … Read More

Hagar Bible Study cover

Welcome to today’s Book Review: The new Hagar Bible study by Shadia Hrichi. If you like going “Behind the SEEN” you’ll love this study. Spend some time with Hagar and those around her. Together with many of those whose lives tell of a relationship with The God who Sees; It’s awesome! Walking through the pages of scripture in this Bible study put me in a happy place. The spiritual discipline of daily time in the Bible is one I love, but sometimes it gets pushed aside in favor of doing life. I’m always grateful for the opportunity to be accountable … Read More

So, Queen Esther of Persia. Who was she? Did she really exist? Was King Xerxes truly so in love with her that he was willing to find a way to save a whole people group? And what’s the deal with Mordechai and Haman?? Today’s Celebrate Lit Book Tour is a fictional account of the story of Hadassah: Queen Esther of Persia. You know how much I like Biblical fiction, so this time I’m doing something a little different. Below the tour, I want to get into more of Esther’s story from a directly Biblical perspective. I hope you will join … Read More
