Love Like No Other by Tabitha Bouldin on tour with Celebrate Lit July 28-August 10, 2023

I really like how often Tabitha Bouldin writes characters who are in the process of working through big, painful issues. There’s depth and emotion and reactions that they’re not always proud of. But they don’t stay stuck forever, and they keep trying. Today’s book is another relatable struggle, and well worth reading. And as always with Celebrate Lit tours, there’s a giveaway, so be sure to comment (for extra entries) and then go to the giveaway link to register!

Shelter of the Most High: Psalm 91 Brought to Life

Bird sheltering nestlings overlooking the ocean. Caption: To dwell in the shelter of His wings

It’s a privilege for us to dwell in the shelter of the Most High. A gift, he has given us. As Beth Moore is so fond of saying, there ain’t no ‘high’ like the Most High! He is the Maker, Creator, Master, and Friend. Almighty Father Protector and Guide. For us to be allowed take refuge with Him, well, wow! I’ve spent a good bit of time on Psalm 90-91 lately (a prayer of Moses), with this post in mind. Psalm 90 talks about the Most High God, and His power and eternal nature. A plea to see God’s work, … Read More

Fear God Not Man: Encouragement, with a Challenge

ArynChristian Fiction, Faith, Young Adult (Age 12+)27 Comments

Fear God not Man, Bible verses about fear

When you fear God not man, you have so much more freedom! The pressure is so much lighter! To fear no one but God is an interesting dynamic, I think. Sometimes I manage to do this, and other times the fear of man (opinions, appearances, insults or even a general “hard time”) holds me back from doing what I know God wants of me. Sometimes, I would rather disappoint God, whom I can’t see, than those around me whose reactions are immediately apparent. But this passage really puts things in perspective! (Matthew 10:26-33 NASB) 26 “Therefore do not fear them, for there is nothing concealed … Read More

4 Ruth and Naomi Relationship Principles

Retelling of Bible stories in another time period can be a powerful tool. Translating the Ruth and Naomi relationship dynamics into other settings managed to bring home the lessons all over again.   Join me today as we talk about 4 tried and true principles from the relationship of Ruth and Naomi. One of the greatest things about books set in other times and places, but based on Bible stories is that you aren’t tampering with the original, so anyone who’s nervous about Biblical fiction can safely enjoy it. You’ll see what I mean in the book below, based on the … Read More

17 Best Christian Fantasy Books to Enjoy Right Now

Best Christian Fantasy Books

Fantasy, by definition, is imagining something impossible, or improbable. Christians, by definition, are followers, disciples, of Jesus Christ. A very real, possible and amazing Savior. At first glance, these two don’t really have much in common, do they? But we’re here discussing the intersection of these two topics anyway. So what are Christian Fantasy Books, and why should you read them? Why Read Christian Fantasy Books? And why on earth would a disciple of Jesus spend time reading them? Very good questions. The ability of good Christian fantasy authors to draw imaginary impossibilities that beautifully reflect Biblical truths is fantastic. … Read More

Estuary: Oceans of Time, Book 1

ArynChristian Fiction6 Comments

Estuary… It’s been years since I read the River of Time series that precedes this one. But I felt like I was coming home after vacation, or maybe on a trip with friends I haven’t seen in a decade. The atmosphere was familiar and comfortable, though I doubt Luci would call it comfortable. Being sucked into the past, in a foreign country can’t be considered either familiar or comfortable, but for her, it was just ‘right’ and I enjoyed taking the journey with her. From the comfort of my world of climate-controlled spaces and modern conveniences. About the Book Book: Estuary … Read More

A Heart for News by Susan K Beatty is on tour with Celebrate Lit June 19-July 2 2023

A Tropical setting, a little suspense, some extenuating circumstances, and just the right amount of romance! I couldn’t put A Heart for News down. It was quite a ride! I know I say that a lot, but I also choose very carefully, books I think will be like that, and I wait for days when I know I’ll be able to read a lot, days where don’t have chores and trips to town scheduled. (And, Yes, I schedule those things so I have days that can mostly be spent in a good book.) About the Book Book: A Heart for News … Read More
