So Delightful 🌺 🌸 ☀️

I ADORE Hope Lyda’s books!  Her newest release from Harvest House Publishers is an extra-special one, because it is an interactive, one-of-a-kind, fresh little devotional entitled “What Do You Need Today? Simple Encouragement for Real-Life Moments”.  In this book, Hope writes as though she is best friends with us, her readers, as she takes the lead and guides us on a fun and fruitful journey of infusing discovery and adventure into our daily lives.

Invitations to Abundance: Such A Meaningful Experience

Have you ever picked up a book and, as you read it, realized it was such a timely message for your life right at this moment?  Invitations to Abundance: How the Feasts of the Bible Nourish Us Today” by Alicia J. Akins was just such a book for me, because the concept of biblical feasting has been a recurring theme in my life for the last several months.  None of the other resources I’ve read on the topic have been as deep and all-inclusive as this title though, and I am so thankful I was able to dive into this new release from Harvest House Publishers.   Continue reading

Excellent Resource For Those Studying Biblical Prophecy

In the past few years, my family has been led to do a great deal of research, reading, and learning about Bible prophecy and the future, specifically the End Times.  As to be expected, as we learn and study from various sources about this topic, many questions arise.  That is why a book such as Charles H. Dyer’s new release from Moody Publishers is so helpful and relevant…  Continue reading

A New Look At The Fruits Of The Spirit

“How God Loves Us: 40 Days to Discovering His Character in the Fruit of the Spirit” is a new book from Moody Publishers written by Jessica Thompson.  This special little volume initially drew my attention because it takes such a unique approach to the Fruits of the Spirit as defined in the book of Galatians.  Why?  Because with Jessica as our guide, we step into the truth that it is because God loves us in these ways – joyfully, peacefully, patiently, kindly, with goodness, faithfully, gently, and with self-control – that we can love others in this way too.   Continue reading

A Fantastic Wilderness Suspense and Romance!

Sunrise” is the first book I’ve read by Susan May Warren, but you can bet your boots it won’t be the last!  As the first book in the “Sky King Ranch” trilogy from Revell, this novel swept me away to the Alaskan wilderness until I was so completely immersed that I couldn’t put it down if I tried.  And then, I found myself at a shocking, no-way-to-end-a-novel cliffhanger, so now I am counting the days until the second book, “Sunburst”, is released! Continue reading

Sarah Sundin’s Best Story Yet – Guest Review by Hayley

A book set during the WWII time period is something I am regularly drawn toward.  The stories are often very compelling, and none more so than “Until Leaves Fall in Paris”.   Continue reading

Anxiously Awaiting My Next Island Visit -Guest Review by Hayley

The second book in “The Secrets of the Isles” series, “To Treasure an Heiress” starts out within mere days of the first book’s ending.  We are transported back to the exact time, place, and circumstances from where we left off, only with secondary characters becoming the leads.  These books should definitely be read in order, as the second book very much builds on the first.    Continue reading

The Treasures of Nome Series Will Always Hold A Treasured Place On My Bookshelf

The ending of a series is always a bittersweet moment, isn’t it?  The final story of “The Treasures of Nome” by Tracie Peterson and Kimberley Woodhouse was definitely sigh-worthy for me, as I’ve loved each moment of this saga from the start.  In “Ever Constant” it is Whitney’s turn for a story, and in my opinion she faces the most difficult struggles of all three sisters.   Continue reading

So Much More Than A Pretty Cover

I had never before read a novel by Christina Suzann Nelson, so when I picked up her new released entitled “Shaped By The Waves” I really wasn’t sure what to expect.  I knew it was contemporary fiction about a girl going back to her hometown, and the cover was lovely with the ocean and seagulls gracing the eye-catching paperback… But that was about it!  Boy, was I in for a surprise. Continue reading

Just A Bit Too Familiar…

I love a good princess story as much as the next girl – and when the said princess story is also a Christian Romance published by Bethany House, then you can bet that I won’t pass that one by!  In Search of a Prince” was written by Toni Shiloh, a new-to-me author with plenty of talent and potential.
