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

A Fascinating, Biblical Approach to Interpreting Dreams – Guest Review by Hayley

I have never before read a book on the topic of dream interpretation.  That’s why I was very excited to pick up “The Complete Guide to Dream Interpretation” by Marsha Trimble Dunstan.  This book is a unique addition to the Christian non-fiction market, and as the title tells us, it is on the rather controversial topic of understanding the reason, message, and significance of these scenes that play through our minds as we sleep.   Continue reading

Fascinating History Combines With A Delightful Story

I am always excited to read a new standalone historical novel by Judith Miller, primarily because she takes fascinating but obscure snippets of history and weaves a captivating story around them. From a girl who paints carousel horses to a father and daughter who travel the country preaching the gospel from a chapel train car, Judith’s stories always promise to teach readers little-known history while simultaneously entertaining them with a wonderful story. It’s a win-win all around! Judith Miller’s newest story from Bethany House Publishers is “The Lady of Tarpon Springs”, which is set in 1905 Florida and centers around the sponge trade… yep, you read that correctly! This is a story of how trained divers (from Greece) arrived in Florida to harvest sponges from deep beneath the surface of the ocean. Although the characters are all fictitious, the details of the sponge business are well-researched and true to history. Continue reading
