Called to Inspire - book review

Image
I love the encouragement and inspiration that I receive from reading devotions, especially when they are interactive. This devotional includes prompts, questions, and declarations along with encouraging devotions that motivate me. Called to Inspire  is refreshing, with the one-page devotions offering a conversational quality and revealing wonderful things to set my thoughts on. After each devotion there are two pages of creative space, which includes a short prayer, a verse of Scripture, a declaration, and an area for journaling. And the topics of the devotions are meaningful, relevant, and so inspiring!  The pages are thick and don’t show bleed through (I use a gel pen) and the attached ribbon bookmark is a nice perk. And with fifty-two devotions in all, this sturdy hardback provides weekly encouragement for an entire year. A presentation page is included in the front of the book if you chose to give it as a gift. Quotes from the book:  The Bible is fascinating

Welcome to the first book in my new series, Back to Bluestone River. . . Andi's Book Reviews - Review "Sigh. Virginia McCullough knocks it out of the park again with this clean romance that is the first in her new series. Ruby and Mike had been high school sweethearts, until horrific tragedies separated them from each other and from the small town they had so dearly loved while growing up. Modern day difficult times, about 20 years later, have brought them both back home, neither one realizing that the other is there. It's a great foundation for a second chance romance. . . . I truly gre

On Tour with Prism Book Tours Book Tour Grand Finale for DawnSinger By Janalyn Voigt We hope you enjoyed the tour! If you missed any of the stops you'll find snippets, as well as the link to each full post, below: Launch - Note from the Author Dear Friends, Welcome to this book tour of DawnSinger , an epic medieval fantasy adventure. Fantasy will always be my first love, although I’ve become a multi-genre author. That’s a fancy term for a storyteller. If I could turn the clock back to the Middle Ages, I’d be a bard. Author Linda Windsor, an endorser of DawnSinger , named the story bardic fiction. I consider that high praise indeed. . . Colorimetry - Excerpt Now for a stormy moment in flight... A crosswind caught Kai’s wingabeast as lightning flared too near. Shrilling, the winged horse tilted in flight, and Kai’s stomach lurched. A gust snatched the hood from his head and roared in his ears. He blinked to clear the stinging rain that drove into his

Dear Grandchild, This Is Me - book review

Image
I love keepsake books like this! And what a unique and special way to celebrate and strengthen the bond with your grandchild, by presenting an intimate and personal glimpse into your life. This sturdy, hardback book provides many opportunities to show your grandchild your personal history, heritage, and heart. I would’ve loved to receive a book like this from my grandparents. I would’ve treasured it forever! The visual theme of the book is colorful trees, which I find appropriate. The pages provide spaces to write personal letters, insights, family tree info, traditions, photographs, and much more. Some pages even contain envelopes to store special notes, photos, or other small mementos. Dear Grandchild, This Is Me  is a precious gift and keepsake for your present or future grandchild. I love it. My thoughts on the cover: I love that this is a sturdy decorated hardback book without a slipcover that can become worn or damaged. The tree is a nice design-representing

The Illustrated NIrV Holy Bible for Kids

One of the most important ways of guiding a child is by sharing stories from the Bible. And what better way to do so than to give them a Bible they can read on their own? This illustrated reader’s version is adorable and easy to digest. It contains an abundance of colorful illustrations, and smart topic labels that make navigation easy. (e.g.  Adam and Eve, Jacob Takes Esau’s Blessing,  Daniel is Thrown Into a Den of Lions, Lazarus Dies,  etc.)     ·        The maps and illustrations make me reminiscent of my Sunday School days as a child, when my teachers would use felt board characters and scenes as teaching tools.  ·        The font is easy on the eyes, and the drawings make Bible time fun and memorable.  ·        The hardback cover is super sturdy, colorful, and interesting. ·        Attached to the back cover is a full-color, removable, double-sided poster. This isn’t a Bible storybook. This is a full-text Bible. It doesn’t contain unnecessary information pages

On Tour with Prism Book Tours Book Tour Grand Finale for Falling for Her Bodyguard By Amy Vastine We hope you enjoyed the tour! If you missed any of the stops you'll find snippets, as well as the link to each full post, below: Launch - Note from the Author . . . Falling for Her Bodyguard is a story about opening your heart even when your head has been telling you to keep the walls up. Enjoy the excerpts and reviews - I hope you fall in love with the newest members of the Grace Note family as much as I did! xoxo, Amy Vastine Remembrancy - Review "But what tipped the scales for me in this book were the characters. . . . Then add in Donovan’s troubled nephew and adorable, energetic niece, and Falling for Her Bodyguard becomes that much sweeter. I didn’t even mind that I had figured out who the stalker was fairly early on. Getting to spend time with Kelly, Donovan, Graham, Avery, and several of the radio crew more than made up for it." Locks
