Ruth

 A  little  disappointing,  I read  to get  a new  twist  on the  story and  came  away realizing  if  it  it  not  in the Bible  we  do not need  to  make  things  up.  I must  say the  writing  was  good. It  was  a book I read in one  morning  jsut to see  what  would  happen.
Thanks  for  the book to review.

Broken

  Broken by  Carole   Dupre
 I was looking forward to reading this book as I think people should indeed discard hypocrisy and false fronts. However, I was greatly confused and disappointed by this book. To clarify, I read many Christian books a year and am able to glean from authors of various denominations and beliefs. This book, however I found wishy-washy and void of depth. The author tried incredibly hard to persuade the reader to drop all masks that he basically encourages them to live in their sinfulness. Seriously- that's what I got from this book. I got the impression that the author promotes the idea that God loves who however you are and you don't even have to try to be a more godly person.... can you understand my confusion now? 
. They need to deal with it and repent rather than just glibly talking about it with other sinners, thus eventually turning sin into normalcy. Secondly, if we are speaking of Christians, should there be darkness? Yes, Christians can sin and Christians should view those 'little' sins as darkness, but there shouldn't be dark sins in a Christian's life. If there are, he or she really, really needs to examine his or her heart to see if he or she is really saved. And by the way, I do not believe in perfectionism. I believe what the Bible says:
Little children, let no one deceive you. Whoever practices righteousness is righteous, as he is righteous. Whoever makes a practice of sinning is of the devil, for the devil has been sinning from the beginning. The reason the Son of God appeared was to destroy the works of the devil. No one born of God makes a practice of sinning, for God's[b] seed abides in him, and he cannot keep on sinning because he has been born of God. (1 John 3)

poetry

Product DetailsThis  author is  also the  artiest of her book. an interesting twist on the  War  as this  one  is  done in beautiful poetry. I like  both  these  aspects  studying the war  and poetry. I found it  a very moving  work of  a  masterpiece . This author pours  out her heart  since she  lived during this time. Add it  to your collection and you will not be disappointed.

Happy Birthday


















I don't know  how much parents  will like this book as  it might  drive  them crazy but I know children will love  pressing the  button over  and over again. I  gave  it to a little  two year old for his  birthday and he walks  around the  house  singing " happy birthday " in his own cute  voice.  As you can tell this book is  all about  the  wondrous things  called  a birthday.  I got it  early to preview  for you all. It  comes  out  at  the  end of  August  I think the  23rd. Two to five  year olds  will love  this  7  by 8 inch sturdy board  book. 16 pages  at a good reasonable price  $12.99.  look for  it on amazon.

Michelle  Adams  knows kids  well having  two her  self. The art  work is fun and done by Sandra  Rodriguz who uses  watercolor.

This book will be a treasured volume  to read  each birthday.

Board book


















I was given an advance  copy of  this  book to read  for  which I am very thankful.  It blessed  some little ones  ages  2  and 4  , yesterday. This book comes out  August  9th. This is  a board  book well suited for little hands. They will love  the picture  and  the  rhyming  message. A very bright book full of  colorful pictures  to keep your little one  preoccupied  for  hours! This book has  a great  message  that  we are  all made in the  image  of  God. The author  could have done better by putting in some handy caped  children.  Jill has  done  a wonderful job  writing this  kids  book but  Amy has  captured the  child's  attention even more. This is  a  book both  parents  and children will applicate.

I thank first  look and  worthy publishing for  the book.

Thinking Differently about Suffering




I really felt comfortable  with  this  book since John and I share the  same  dctrine  background. The  author  write in an engaging  manner as  he  tries   to  trust  God  knowing  He  is  all wise. Every christian's will have  why's  when face  with  great  suffering wither in your own life or others. John shares  hos his  wife's  incurable illness  shook  his life  and  the lessons  God used.  

Are  you equipped to deal with  tragedies just because you are a  Christian? Is  it  wrong  to question God? Follow  the  author  as he  shares is insight. Even if you are  not  in the  middle of  a  suffering this  book can be  useful to help one  know what  not  to say and  to say to another  grieving person.

I felt very blessed  to read  this book on suffering  and triumph in Christ  alone. 


I highly recommend this book for those who are going through suffering, have experienced it in the past and who know others  who are . It  will help you understand why they are  acting in ways they are.

A world war II boook

 This  is a  murder  mystery with  a  touch of  romance  it which is  set  in London in World  War  II.  The author claims her  story is  based  on true facts.  The  events  take place during the  London  Blitz  in 1940. The detective finds a  body which every one  suspects  was killed  by a  bomb but on a  closer look he  finds she was murdered.   Questions arise  why? And How? This  turns  into a  very tangled  mess. I found it a  fine  read  but not  one  i would read  again, yet  there  were  lots of  twists  to this  story.

The author  did  a  good  job  to transport  one  back to London. One  can learn a lot  about how it  was  to live in this  place  during the  war. Yet I did not like that  they had to put a women in it as  he describes  her  an attractive  American war corespondent.  This almost distracts  the  detective  from his  duties.

Apart from this point  I did enjoy!
