A Fabulous, Interactive Devotional to Inspire Creativity – Guest Review by Hayley

Have you ever felt as though you are not creative?  Maybe you feel like creativity is only something for those “artsy types” who are able to understand abstract art, or seem to always get the perfect angles in their photographs.  Well, in her new book, “Courageous Creative”, Jenny Randle is here to tell you that the creative journey is for absolutely everyone because we have all been created by a creative God.  Whatever your life looks like, this interactive devotional will be a valuable step to either boost your creative mind, or rediscover the creativity that is perhaps buried beneath the not-so-great parts of life.

A Timely Message

A new release from Revell Publishers written by Kay Wills Wyma holds a very timely message for practically everyone living in the fast-paced world of our modern day and age. “Not the Boss of Us: Putting Overwhelmed In It’s Place In A Do-All, Be-All World” is the response to the questions so many of us feel deep down, sometimes even subconsciously: “Too much to manage and not enough time or energy to do it? What if instead of being overwhelmed with life you could be overwhelmed by Truth with all its grace, hope, peace, and love?” Continue reading

Disappointing Novel About C.S. Lewis and Joy Davidman’s Relationship

I had high hopes for a new book written by Patti Callahan and published by Thomas Nelson. “Becoming Mrs. Lewis” promised to be a “masterful exploration of one of the greatest love stories of modern times” – the one between C.S. Lewis and Joy Davidman. What I actually discovered, however, was a story so ridden with inappropriate and downright yucky content that I was unable to finish the book.

To be clear, “Becoming Mrs. Lewis” is a well-written and thought-provoking novel that seems to be based, at least to a certain extent, on the real relationship between C.S. Lewis and Joy Davidman. The problems arise in the details of the behind-the-scenes relationship story… Continue reading

The Electrifying Conclusion of “The Tox Files”

At long last, the epic chronicle of “The Tox Files” comes to an electrifying climax and shocking conclusion! “Thirst of Steel” is the third book in the riveting series written by Ronie Kendig and published by Bethany House, and is undoubtedly the best and most compelling installment of them all. If you have enjoyed the previous hair-raising operations of Tox Russell and the rest of the Wraith team, you will not want to miss this final conflict, which “Will hinge on one of history’s most dangerous blades”… The sword of Goliath.

An Exciting New Film Releases This Weekend: “Little Women: A Modern Movie”!

2018 marks the 150th anniversary of the publication of a very special story. This story has worked its way into the hearts and imaginations of girls for generations, and influenced young women to love, dream, grow, and become the women God created them to be. “Little Women” by Louisa May Alcott is one of my favorite classic novels, and on September 28th, 2018, this timeless story will be released in theatres as a modern movie to inspire a new generation of girls. Pinnacle Peak Entertainment and Pure Flix presents: “Little Women: A Modern Movie”. Continue reading

High-Time for a Story

Hello my dear friends, how is everyone doing after a busy summer? Today (and always), I’m excited about books. My two girls and I LOVE books. We are very big readers, and are always having a conversation about a book (or books) we’re reading. Lately I’ve been reading/studying mostly non-fiction…animal communication, energy healing, medical intuition, meditation, and the list goes on. My girls have finally won their campaign to get me to read a fiction book. I’m loving it. It’s a historical fiction, one of my favorite genres. I forgot what it was like to get lost in a book! Oh it’s so much fun! I leave the worries of my day and enter a wonderful story. As it’s getting cooler outside, and the daylight hours are shorter, we also tend to watch a few more movies too. This past weekend we pulled out The Sound of Music—it’s such a…
