I am reviewing a copy of Simply Blessed through Broadstreet Publishing Group and Netgalley:

In this book we are reminded that we can find God, even in the mundane moments of life. We are reminded too that as Christians we should be clothed in his righteousness.

Kim Chaffin reminds us too that our choices do not have to define us, the mistakes we make can be forgiven.

The author points out too that God is the Gardener of our heart.

We are encouraged too check our burdens at the cross. We are reminded too that we can’t control everything. We are reminded too that fear is not from God.

I give Simply Blessed five out of five stars!

Happy Reading!

Book Review: Of Mess And Moxie

Of Mess and Moxie

Wrangling Delight Out of This Wild and Glorious Life

by Jen Hatmaker

Thomas Nelson

Christian , Humor

Pub Date 08 Aug 2017

I am reviewing a copy of Mess and Moxie through Thomas Nelson and Netgalley:

This book reminds us it’s okay not to be perfect, and that it is okay for a woman to have a backbone. This book reminds us that women have been demonstrating residency and resolve since the beginning of time.

Women get the idea that because there is pain or failure they must be doing things wrong, that somehow they must have done something wrong. That when things don’t go as plan women are somehow to be blamed but Jen Hatmaker reminds us with humor and heart that is not the case.

I give Of Mess and Moxie five out of five stars!

I am reviewing a copy of This I Know through Moody Publishers and Netgalley:

If you worry about what the future holds, and honestly who doesn’t from time to time this book will help you to live like God is in control, (because he is).

We are reminded that we are often trying to fill in the unknown. We are also reminded not to make a God of Idols!

This book reminds us too that we need to think about what we believe.

We are reminded too that Prayer does change things.

This six week study takes us through Acts 17, James 1, Habukuk 3, Psalms 46, 2nd Chronicles 20 and Joshua 3. Dealing with subjects such as abundance in Jesus, along with the goodness of God in trial. As well as the value of remembering God’s past faithfulness.

This study would be beneficial for both individual and group Bible Studies.
