Bible Promises to Live By for Women

This book is by Katherine J. Butler. It has a flexible linen-textured cover and is a small compact size. There are several topics listed in the table of contents:

Topics are easy to navigate because they are in alphabetical order in the book. The topic sections include a short encouraging paragraph and several scriptures in the New Living Translation. Occasionally, you come across a scripture in an enlarged and elegant font. There are 500 Biblical promises in this book!

I really like this! It is a quick reference for encouraging scriptures. Read it from start to finish or look up applicable topics as you need them! It would fit in purses for something to keep with you while you are on the go. It would be a great gift for someone who is new to scriptures or for someone who needs some encouragement. I would highly recommend this book.

Threads Of Suspicion

This book by: Dee Henderson is the second book in the Evie Blackwell Cold Case series. Evie is on the Missing Person’s Task Force along with several other capable team members. She is paired with David Marshal to work on two unrelated cases in Chicago. Evie is investigating the disappearance of a popular college student and David is investigating a missing private investigator. As they pursue the leads in each of their cases, it becomes clear that there is more to the cases than they had originally anticipated…including some personal ties. The search for truth is their top priority. Evie also has to deal with some personal issues that cannot take a back burner any longer. With the help of her new friend of David, she starts to come to terms with where her personal life is headed.

Dee Henderson books have always been among my favorites. They include mystery, suspense, romance, and spiritual truths. This one did not disappoint. Although the second in the series, I was able to read without having previously read the first book in the series. As always, Henderson incorporates several characters known from other books she has written. I love how Henderson does this because it is fun to learn what former characters are doing in the present time-frame of her stories. Although some suspense, I thought that this book focused more on the personal side of the characters than it did of the solving crime aspect. I admit, I was a little disappointed in how some of the character relationships played out. I am hoping that future books in the series might expand on those relationships so that their story resolves in a way that makes more sense. Anyone who likes suspense, romance, and spiritual conversation and reflection would like this book (as well as any book that Dee Henderson has written).

Princess Prayers

This book is written by: Crystal Bowman and inspired by: Jeanna Young & Jacqueline Johnson with pictures by: Omar Aranda. It is a board book marketed towards young girls. Each two page spread includes a prayer, scripture verse, and beautiful illustration based on The Princess Parables series. There are a total of fifteen prayers in the book.

I have always loved The Princess Parables series. My girls have enjoyed reading them over the years. Generally speaking, the series is geared towards preschool & early elementary aged girls. This book is no different but my eight year old daughter still reads the books in the series every once in awhile. This book is perfect for teaching young girls simple prayers. It could be read all at once, as a daily devotional, or as a certain topic is needed. It could could be an adorable gift for the little girls in your life!

Tranquility: A Prayer and Reflection Coloring Journal

This book is published by Tyndale and is in their Living Expressions Collection. It is hardback and has over 100 pages. Each two page spread has different themes. Throughout the book there are prayers, scripture, writing prompts, journaling lines, and designs for coloring. There are pops of color on almost every page. Scripture quotes are from the New Living Translation (NLT).

I already have the Gratitude Coloring Journal from the same series so I was excited to have the opportunity to review this book as well. I also have a couple of adult coloring books that sit in a basket by my bed for when I have some free time (not very often). I usually find the coloring pages relaxing but difficult to finish in a timely manor due to size or detailed design. Like the Gratitude Coloring Journal, this book is a smaller journal size and the pages could easily be colored in a short amount of time. Some coloring pages are simplistic and others are more detailed. There are several already colored pages as well. This book will be a good addition to a daily devotional time. Each of the two page spreads coordinate with the tranquility, prayer, and reflection themes. It would also be perfect for gifts (I have bought over 10 of the Gratitude Coloring Journals for gifts and plan to buy several of these as well)!!!

Here are some photos of a few of my favorite two page spreads in the journal:

Once Upon A Time Storybook Bible

This book is illustrated by Omar Aranda and published by ZonderKids. The book is approximately 8 x 10 inches which is similar to other hardback illustrated children’s books. Comprised of 33 popular Bible stories, there are 18 stories from the Old Testament and 15 stories from the New Testament. Each story has a title, scripture verse (taken from the New International Version (NIV), vibrant illustrations, “Once Upon A Time…” paraphrased story, and a “Happily Ever After” word of wisdom and story scripture reference.

On the front cover, it states, “The Bible is not a fairy tale. Every great story happened once upon a time.” An example of a “Happily Ever After” section in the Queen Esther story states, “Esther was brave to face Haman and the king. God gave her the courage she needed to save her people. He makes all of us brave when we need to be.” In the Darkest Day story about Jesus dying on the cross it states, “Jesus gave his life to save the world. He died so that one day, you could join him in heaven. Tell him thank you for his sacrifice.” I love the colorful illustrations of this book. The stories are written simplistically for a preschool and early elementary audience. This book will definitely appeal to young children and would make a great gift!

The Shack

In light of the new movie adaptation of The Shack, I thought I would reblog my review of the book. I have no plans to watch the movie because of how strongly I feel about the bad and misleading theology the book presents. I would consider watching it if someone asked me to give my opinion of it but I highly doubt the movie would make significant enough changes from the book to change my opinion of it. If you choose to watch the movie and/or read the book, I encourage you to do so with caution and with careful consideration and comparison to scripture. Do not let the emotional story cloud your discernment.

Heart Treasures

Here is my “review” of the book, “The Shack.” I wrote this and e-mailed it to all of my friends in August 2008 after reading “The Shack” for my church’s book club. Since the book is still making its rounds in the Christian community and since it came up in conversation in the comments section of another blog; I thought that sharing this would be relevant.

*****

I recently read a popular book called “The Shack” by William P. (Paul) Young. I am giving you my opinion of this book now because I can find a ton more positive reviews about this book than negative. Especially within the Christian community; most of the reviews/comments I have read give mostly praise and “how this book changed my life” perspectives. Personally, for a book that many people consider as Christian Fiction; I find this book to be mostly unbiblical and very…
