New Biblical Fiction Holds Nothing Back

Jill Eileen Smith is a must-read author for me.  Her Biblical Fiction is without question some of the best in the genre, and her newest release from Revell Publishers is one of her most impressive works so far.  The Prince and the Prodigal” is a sweeping masterpiece that spans decades of time, and dives deep into the lives of two brothers who most likely you are familiar with… Joseph and Judah, two of the twelve sons of Jacob – patriarch of biblical times.   Continue reading

You’ll Never Guess Who Stars in the Final ”Hearts on the Heath” Story!

If you enjoy Regency Romance in the Christian genre, you most likely have read a book or two (or more!) by Kristi Ann Hunter.  Her newest release from Bethany House Publishers, “Enchanting the Heiress” is the third (and I’m guessing final) story in her “Hearts on the Heath” series.  This one I have long been awaiting, because it takes such an unlikely pairing of people, woven into a unique drama, and leaves you with a story you won’t soon forget!

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

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

Continue reading

The ”American Royalty” Adventures Continue


I have been excited for Grace Hitchcock’s new release from Bethany House, “Her Darling Mr. Day”, ever since last year when the oh-so-memorable first story in the “American Royalty” series became available.  This new tale continues with two of my favourite secondary characters, and takes place in the fascinating southern city of New Orleans in the year 1883.   Continue reading

Books From GirlDefined Ministries Never Disappoint

Over the years, Kristen Clark and Bethany Beal of GirlDefined Ministries have taught me so much about living as a godly woman and daughter of our Lord.  With each new book they release, I am challenged to grow in new ways.  According to Kristen and Bethany this new book is their most personal one yet, and I definitely agree – yet it is not just a ‘memoir-type’ book that gives their stories and leaves the readers wondering how it affects them.  In fact, the opposite is true.   Continue reading

A Perfect New Book For The New Year

I truly cannot think of a better way to start off the new year than by reading “Spiritual Intelligence: The Art of Thinking Like God”, a challenging and life-changing new book written by pastor and best-selling author Kris Vallotton.  In this book, Kris utilizes solid Biblical teachings to unpack a simple question: “What does it mean to think like God, to have the mind of Christ?  Have you ever considered the answer to this question for yourself?  Written in a warm and engaging style, this book overflows with profound teachings as well as practical applications to begin using SQ, or spiritual intelligence, in our daily lives.  The results, as you will see, are nothing short of extraordinary.
