A Heart Most Certain – Melissa Jagears

I was scrolling through Facebook one day when I saw an author’s post – she was giving away a few copies of her new book to a random number of folks who commented on her post – and as any avid reader would do, I commented.  A little while later, I was tagged in a…

Every Day in His Presence – Dr. Charles Stanley

I have this tradition.  Every year, I use a different devotional for my morning quiet time.  In 2016, I read Every Day in His Presence by Dr. Charles Stanley, senior pastor of First Baptist Church Atlanta and one of my favorite preacher/authors.  After spending a year with this beautiful volume, I’ll give a brief outline…

It’s Good To Be Queen – Liz Curtis Higgs

Scotland.  I had always associated Liz Curtis Higgs with her Historical Fiction Series set in the Highlands and Lowlands of Scotland.  Every time I see this author’s name, my mind imagines purple heather hills, castles and a fictional storyline that often parallels a Biblical story.  Some of the best Biblical Fiction books I’ve ever read,…

Pilgrimage – Lynn Austin

I know Lynn Austin from her book “Candle in the Darkness,” and other titles that keep piling up on my to-read list.  Reviews for her fiction pieces have received 5 stars and praise for building emotion and using accurate historical facts; when I happened upon this narrative that retold the journey she took to the…

She Walks In Power – Mary Lu Tyndall

A disloyal friend.  The King’s Knights.  A warrior of God.  Evil warlock.  Godly Friar.  Power hungry bishop.  What do they all have in common?  They are wrapped up in a fight for the spearhead that stabbed Christ on the cross.  She Walks In Power by Mary Lu Tyndall is the first Medieval Novel in a…

Reapers – Bryan Davis

When I first heard Bryan Davis announce his new book, Reapers, I was unsure if the storyline was one I would enjoy.  A Christian story about taking people’s spirit’s from their dead bodies?  In addition, the book has also been likened to the popular series, The Hunger Games; one I thought was quite gruesome.  Then…

The Fiddler – Beverly Lewis

I’ll say this up front – I’m not a big “Amish Fiction” person.  I’ve read Beverly Lewis’ “Summer Hill Secrets Series” (teen fiction) and had my pleasant fill of the Amish setting.  I enjoyed and would recommend that series, especially to teens, but my natural tendency is to lean towards historical fiction or something with…

Questioning Evangelism by Randy Newman

The title caught my attention.  What was the author saying with such a title?  That we shouldn’t share the Gospel with people?  The teaser from the back cover explained why and the concept behind the book kept me coming back for more. Author Randy Newman poses the question, “Have we been approaching evangelism with the…

Will Our Generation Speak? by Grace Mally

“Will Our Generation Speak” by Grace Mally was given to me as a Christmas present from my best friend and I was very blessed by reading it.  Grace, a young Christian lady in her twenties writes why it is important for this generation to be bold in their witness for Christ.  Through seventeen chapters, she…

Summer of the Midnight Sun by Tracie Peterson

I don’t know about you, but I love a good spin-off series.  Every story has an end, but when an author takes the people around the main character in one book/series and develops their own story in another, we get to enjoy the characters we’ve grown to love a little longer. Recently, I finished reading…
