Prayer Warrior Journal

Image
I love this journal! I never really thought about recording my prayers in a journal, but what a wonderfully inspiring and encouraging idea. This journal serves two-fold. As a journal to keep track of your prayers, and as a devotional that is created by prayer prompts. For example, each page has a prompt, such as incorporating thanksgiving into your prayer, or friends, your workplace, etc. The prompts stimulate your thinking and enhance your prayers. I like that this book is designed to stretch out over 52 weeks. Such a memorable and edifying resolution--to spend an entire year focused on prayer and recording those prayers in your prayer journal. Each week has a section where you can fill in the date, the prayer subject, record relevant Scripture verses, and your personal prayer. Makes a meaningful and unique gift and keepsake. ☆☆☆☆☆ I received a complimentary copy of this book.

About the Book Book:   Yours, Mine, & Forever Author:  Joanne Markey Genre:   Contemporary Romance Release Date:  September 7, 2019 Whoever said the course of true love never runs smooth knew their business. Especially motherly love. Still, with adoption success just waiting for ink and paper to appear, Norah can focus on more exciting things, like Christmas, and figuring out how this marriage thing is going to work out! However, never underestimate the craftiness of an antagonist old woman determined to get her own way—or rather, stop Norah from getting hers. If it means resorting to underhanded means to ensure she comes out on top, then so be it. All it takes is a word in the right ear, a nudge here, a wink there, and the natural course of gossip and slander will do the rest. When the dust clears, Norah’s heart is in tatters and her fledgling relationship is in ruins… Or is it? Will her hero’s patience wear thin, and is Norah’s faith strong enough to see her

An April wind’s flurry sent swirls of dust into the air and across the yard.  [Opening lines of  The Crow’s Call ] The Crow’s Call showcases people dealing with loss and uncertainty after three men die in a tragic accident. Amy, Sylvia, Henry, and Belinda each deal with their loss in varying ways and the family greenhouse may be the only thing keeping them together. Everyone is trying to keep their head above water, but the loads they’re carrying become heavier and threaten to pull them under.

About the Book Book:   Jesus Promised Victory Author:  Ken Gould Genre:   Non-Fiction, Christian living Release Date: October 15, 2018 Are you frustrated with trying to live the Christian life? Do your struggles with sin discourage you? Have you been taught you can’t ever win the battle . . . that as long as you are living, you will fall short? Jesus told people to sin no more. Rather than tell them the struggle with sin and Satan would be difficult, He said, “My yoke is easy and my burden is light.” Jesus doesn’t ask us to do the impossible. Ken Gould rejected distorted teachings about God and was an atheist for twenty years, until God revealed His existence to him. Afterward, he recognized Christianity wasn’t something to be taken lightly. His highest priority became to know God and understand His counsel. Gould says, “It is possible to live a godly life in victory. What we believe about God affects our ability to live a victorious life.” In this guidebook
