Live The Let-Go Life – Joseph Prince

We’ve all seen the t-shirts, tote bags and coffee mugs that boast, “Too blessed to be stressed.”  Maybe you even have one. (I do, too!) But after we pour the caffeine into our favorite mug, or, look in the mirror wearing a cute shirt, reality begs for an answer to the question, “How do we…

Behold The Man – Bodie and Brock Thoene

The last book in the Jerusalem Chronicles, Behold The Man, was such an eye opener for me.  Set during the time of Christ’s earthly ministry, it’s written from a Roman point of view and had this theme, “What did Rome think of Jesus?”  Honestly, every time I’ve read the gospels, it never occurred to me…

Take This Cup – Bodie and Brock Thoene

Take This Cup is the second book in the Jerusalem Chronicles, a biblical fiction series set at the time of Christ.  If you read my review of the first book (When Jesus Wept) you may remember I began this series for Easter and really enjoyed it.  The writing style and characters drew me into the…

When Jesus Wept – Bodie and Brock Thoene

For Easter, I wanted to read a Biblical Fiction series set in the New Testament.  I wanted something that would connect me to the time period Jesus lived in and maybe even offer new understanding in the way fiction does best.  I chose The Jerusalem Chronicles by Bodie and Brock Thoene and what can I…

Singing At Sea Cruise | Friday

It’s the last day of a cruise, how do you spend your time?  Plan every hour down to the minute and pack in as much as you can?  Find a chair on deck and relax? I’ve found that the answer varies from cruise to cruise, and this year, I took a more relaxed pace on…

Singing At Sea Cruise | Thursday

Thursday morning, my alarm went off at an ungodly hour.  The only thing that kept me from hitting the snooze button was three excursion tickets to Chichen Itza predominantly displayed on the counter in front of the mirror.  Now that was worth getting up for… Unfortunately, the Windjammer wasn’t open at 6:00 am to eat…

Singing At Sea Cruise | Chichen Itza

There’s something about touring an ancient ruin that can cause your heart to skip a beat.  The reality of walking among the same structures that a civilization built with their hands thousands of years ago, wondering what the people who lived there would think if they saw a bus load of tourists walking around their…

Singing At Sea Cruise | Wednesday

Sea days.  Some like to sleep in, some like the fact that you don’t have to be anywhere and can just relax, and then some like to use the extra hours on the water to see as much singing as they can.  This year, the latter was me. My host group had a private concert…
