I am reviewing a copy of The Confident Woman Devotional through FaithWords and Netgalley:

In this Devotional Joyce Meyer’s reminds us that God has created us to be confident and Bold, that as Christians we shouldn’t have the need to compare ourselves to others.

We are encouraged not to give up and are reminded that worrying does not solve anything, that it is a waste.

The Confident Woman Devotional would make a great gift for the woman in your life needing a Devotional.

I am reviewing a copy of In Too the Deep through Revell and Netgalley:

Adam Campbell is a white collar crimes investigator, the dive team is called to recover a body from a car that was underwater. What they aren’t expecting to find is an encrypted laptop that has an unsettling connection between investigator Adam Campbell and the victim, a dead accountant.

In order to recover the files from the laptop Adam turns to his friend Dr Sabrina Fleming a professor at the local university who has unparalleled computer and forensic skills. As they dig deeper the investigation only gets more deadly. Soon the evidence uncovers a human trafficking ring and implicates members of Adam’s own family, he and Sabrina will have to risk everything to solve the case.

Revealing the truth can sets hundreds free but someone is willing to silence them at all costs.

Book Review: A Sojourners Truth

A Sojourner’s Truth

Choosing Freedom and Courage in a Divided World

by Natasha Sistrunk Robinson

InterVarsity Press

Christian , Religion & Spirituality

Pub Date 09 Oct 2018

I am reviewing a copy of A Sojourners Truth through Intervarsity Press and Netgalley:

In this book the author reminded us that beginnings have meanings. They reveal purpose and value of our lives by helping to shape the people we become.

This book points out sadly too that sometimes truth in who we are can get us into trouble. We are reminded too that pain is often the tool God uses to help us realize our passion and purpose.

This book points out too that women are often the unsung heroes in this world. It is pointed out too that strong is knowing your own power and using it humbly.

We are reminded too that there is no place like home.

It is pointed out too that winners don’t quit on themselves. We are reminded too that for every question, obstacle and doubt God has an answer.

A Sojourner’s Truth serves as a wake up call for many of us.

I give A Sojourner’s Truth five out of five stars!
