If You Only Read One Non-Fiction Book This Year. . . Choose This One

If you only read a single non-fiction book this year (aside from the Bible), I suggest that it be Jennie Allen’s new release from Thomas Nelson Publishers. Yes, it was THAT good. “Made For This: 40 Days to Living Your Purpose” is the first book I’ve read by this incredible author, but now I want to get my hands on everything she’s written! “Made For This” is not just a regular book, rather it is “a 40-day interactive journey, a step-by-step process to guide you in answering life’s ultimate question.” In a workbook-style format with daily reading followed by exercises, journaling questions, Scripture reading, and more, this book is unique and powerful. If you let it, it can also be life-changing. Continue reading

I Preferred Her Previous Series…

After enjoying Liz Johnson’s “Prince Edward Island Dreams” series published by Revell, I couldn’t wait to read the first story (entitled “A Sparkle of Silver”) in her brand new series of “Georgia Coast Romance” novels. With a unique treasure hunt and a secondary story in the form of diary pages, “A Sparkle of Silver” promised to be a great story. . . Continue reading

A Satisfying Conclusion to a Fascinating Series

I always feel like sighing after finishing the last installment of a series, as it brings both a sense of completion and a feeling of regret that the journey has concluded. Suzanne Woods Fisher’s “Nantucket Legacy” trilogy, published by Revell, has now come to a close with “The Light Before Day”. The fascinating Quaker history combined with an intriguing plot, memorable characters, and a second parallel tale told through a decades-old journal, all combine to make this series one that I am glad to have read. Continue reading

A Second Visit to Nantucket

“Minding the Light” is Suzanne Woods Fisher’s newest release in the “Nantucket Legacy” series, a unique story filled with fascinating history, a secondary plot from an earlier generation (in the form of a journal), and the unique setting of Nantucket Island in the 19th century. Published by Revell in the summer of 2018, this story of the Quakers who made a living from the dangerous whale trade is a must-read for all of Ms. Fisher’s Amish fiction fans. Continue reading

“She always wanted a different heart. But she never expected the adventure that would come with it.” After reading this tagline, who could resist learning more about the story it describes? “The Heart Between Us” was written by new-to-me author Lindsay Harrel and published by Thomas Nelson just in time for Spring, 2018. As readers step into the pages of this sweet novel, they will be swept along on an adventure of growth, challenge, discovery, and love. Continue reading

An Inspiring Nantucket Adventure

Although I haven’t read very many of Suzanne Woods Fisher’s numerous novels, the ones I have read are always enjoyable and unique. Her newest Historical Romance release from Revell Publishing, “Phoebe’s Light”, was no exception, and is the first of an exciting new series called the “Nantucket Legacy”. As the back cover promises, readers will be swept away on an adventure set against the “treacherous shores of Quaker life on the storied Nantucket Island”. Continue reading

A Powerful and Timely Message

Have you ever had an experience where it feels like God sends you a gift at just the right moment in your life, when He knows you need it most? I’ve had this happen to me several times recently… “This I Know: Trusting Your Unknown Future to a Known God” is a 6-Week Bible study written by Laura Dingman, and is part of the Bible Studies for Women series from Moody Publishers. I haven’t quite finished the study yet, but so far nearly every lesson has felt like a special message from God to me. Continue reading
