Beyond Amazing Tour DVD Taping

Millions of people were probably already in Times Square on New Years Eve when my car wound its way into the parking lot of Beulah Baptist Church. Ringing in the New Year with a Gospel concert has always been a tradition for me, when possible, and I couldn’t of been happier when the winding roads…

Prague – A Walk Along The River

So often, when we walked through the streets of Prague and talked about where we would go next, we’d almost always end up at Charles Bridge at some point in the day. Besides Old Town Square, Charles Bridge is the most tourist populated area of Prague, and with good reason. Following underneath Charles Bridge is…

Prague – The Prague Castle

Across the river from Old Town, The Prague Castle dominates the skyline on top of the hill. If you think the structure is imposing from that distance, just wait until you stand on the steps of St. Vitus Cathedral and look straight up. It’s stunning. If your walking there, give yourself plenty of time. We…

The pedestrian city is a walking wonder of history, stunning architecture and unparalleled views. Throw in the festive Christmas season, snowy days and the bustle of shoppers at the Christmas markets and…

Egypt’s Sister – Angela Hunt

I have always enjoyed Angela Hunt as an author from the few books I’ve read from her.  Whether it be Pilgrims forging their way in the New World in “Roanoke,” or adventurers sailing across the ocean in “The Golden Cross,” I always thought her books were lively and interesting.  “Egypt’s Sister” was the first Biblical…

If you read my review about the first book in the “Fall of Man Series” on Goodreads, you’ll know that I didn’t have a high opinion of the approach the author took with Cain’s story. However, Flood was the complete opposite…seriously, I couldn’t put this book down! The characters were believable and the plot was…

The Liberty Bride – Mary Lu Tyndall

There are two time periods I can’t get enough of when it comes to Mary Lu Tyndall’s novels – her pirates and her romances set during the War of 1812. Luckily for me, the sixth title in the “Daughters Of The Mayflower” Series, “The Liberty Bride,” was set in those turbulent times between America and…
