The Divine Heart by Danielle Mani + Amazon gift card #giveaway 4 winners

Disclosure: I received a free book pack from the author. Post contains affiliate links; opinions shared are mine.

Being a teacher means you’re fully invested in the lives of your students.  When something goes on in their lives, you’re praying for their success and happiness.  Even years later, when I see one of my former students, I love hearing about their current lives.  It’s kind of like having an extension of my own family.  When I read Divine Heart by Danielle Mani, it was the first time I realized that nurses must experience the same thing.  They’re involved in a small window of their patients’ lives; trying so hard to provide care and comfort makes them part of the healing process.  They must be invested in that patient’s future, too.  Sweet Elle was only 17 years old, yet her young life revolved around someone else’s death. What an emotional load to carry!  [Read more…]

All Things Now Living by Rondi Bauer Olson Blog Tour #Giveaway

Disclosure: I received this book free for the blog tour. Opinions shared are mine.

Dystopian young adult fiction is probably my favorite genre.  It’s typically full of action, there are multi-faceted characters that immediately draw the reader in, and they tend to be series books rather than one-off wonders.  All Things Now Living has much potential as the first Seventh Daughter title.  I’m excited to see where this series is headed.  [Read more…]

She Reads Truth Bible #giveaway – 7 winners 12/10 US #SheReadsTruth #ReadYourBible

Disclosure: I was given this Bible to review for B&H Publishing by FrontGate Media. While I was given the Bible for free all thoughts and opinions are my own.

I’m LOVING the new trends in today’s Bible editions.  Publishers are catching on to the fun of fonts, textures on covers, and generally making a Bible look pretty.  We used to hide our Bibles in quilted covers and carry them around like a purse. No more!  These Bibles are meant to be attractive all on their own.  I was given a copy of the She Reads Truth Bible in poppy linen hardcover.  Isn’t it gorgeous?  [Read more…]

Last year, my daughter attended the Tennessee Christian Teen Convention in Gatlinburg, TN.  She absolutely loved the experience, saying it was a life-changing weekend.  One of the things she loved most about the convention was the amazing music! The worship songs stay with her even now.  I understand this, since I still catch myself singing favorite church camp worship songs.  In the Alpha / Omega CD, Kutless performs many wonderful, familiar sing-along worship songs that will surely be favorites for your family!   We’re excited to listen to this CD in the car during our daily commute.

Indescribable by Louie Giglio #giveaway

Disclosure: I received this book to review. Post contains affiliate links; opinions shared are mine.

Lately my son is completely interested in shows like Bill Nye the Science Guy, Magic School Bus, and basically anything that has a science theme.  He told me that he’s like to be a scientist when he grows up, “but scientists don’t believe in God.”  Wait, WHAT?!  

That’s when I knew that Indescribable: 100 Devotions for Kids About God and Science was going to come in handy. [Read more…]

Deadly Proof by Rachel Dylan #giveaway 5 winners

Disclosure: Litfuse sent me this book as part of the blog tour. Opinions shared are mine.

As a fan of Lisa Scottoline’s legal thrillers, I really enjoyed Rachel Dylan’s Deadly Proof.  Set in Atlanta, this story gives the reader a peek into the inner workings of a corrupt pharmaceutical company.  It’s all Erin Brockovich kind of stuff, with hunky Landon James as a good side character.
