Jesus the One and Only by Beth Moore

When I was asked if I wanted to join the blog tour for Beth Moore's new study I jumped at the chance to peek through the pages penned from her heart. That's exactly what they are too. Beth is one of my favorites. She is a woman of God and she is on a mission to be used greatly of God. With combination she is unstoppable.

I have enjoyed reading many of Beth's studies, but I must be honest and tell you, this is my by far my favorite yet. I knew to expect great writing, but what I didn't expect was to be so moved by the Lord in such a powerful way. "Jesus the One and Only" takes us through the Book of Luke. We begin with Zechariah and Elizabeth and move all the way through the life of Christ.

Friends, this was a journey that started with intrigue and only got more exciting along the way. I couldn't turn the pages fast enough. I grabbed a highlighter and created a bright pink outline of the high points for me. I soon realized the entire book was going to be pink.

I was blessed to review, "Jesus the One and Only", in book format. It too is available in study book form. This book is published by B&H Publishing Group and is available now for purchase.

I loved going along with Beth on this journey through the book of Luke. She gives the scripture verses for you to read first, then as you come back to the book you have a greater understanding of what she is sharing. I can honestly share with you that this is one of those life changing, life altering books. Jesus wants to have an intimate relationship with us. For us to do so we must know Him more and knowing more of His life gives us a greater understanding of Him. This book flows and is so easy to understand. My eyes were opened to things I hadn't put much thought in before. Beth helps us understand how everything fits together to create a completed puzzle.

I think what I love the most is that we see the love Beth truly has for her Savior. She is passionate and real. That makes her relatable. I have read the Book of Luke many times, but this book opened my eyes to uncovering more detail. As a visual learner this was a great book for me. Beth takes the brush and paints a beautiful portrait of the life of Christ. She has a gift that brings the reader to ponder more deeply, which encouraged me to remain in the Word longer. Beth doesn't add more to the Bible, she brings our attention to detail and inspires us to truly know our Savior.

If your wanting a wonderful read to encourage you on your walk with Jesus is is an exceptional gem that you will want to return to again and again. Once we know Jesus personally our faith will only grow!

This book was a gift from Shelton Interactive for the review of Jesus The One And Only.

Beth Moore is a writer and teacher of best-selling books and Bibles studies whose public speaking engagements carry her all over the United States. A dedicated wife and mother of two adult daughters, Beth lives in Houston, Texas, where she is president and founder of Living Proof Ministries.

The One True Love of Alice-Ann by Eva Marie Everson

Oh, just where do I begin? This is the stuff in which great novels are made. I made my way through this richly beautiful novel turning page after page with such deep emotion and thought. I couldn't turn the pages quick enough, but I didn't want it to end to soon. It's one of those novels you could continue reading as long as there were pages. No page just made of fluff, words with no meaning on the page. Every single line in this novel created a story that will last in my heart forever. 
Ms. Everson, I am so happy stories of the war were shared with you. Oh, to have your Sunday school teacher share with you, "You can't choose who you fall in love with, but you can choose who you marry", is a blessing that has now enchanted your readers. What a story you have weaved together. History penned with such depth, detail, and a story that captures the heart. 
This lovely story begins in 1941. The war has started. Picture a family gathered around the Zenith to hear t…

The" I Am" Makes Us Think About What "i am"

In Genesis 1:26-27 it shares something valuable to each of us about who we are in God. We are created in His image. What I love about this verse below is that is says, "make man in OUR image". What's OUR? The trinity, God, the Holy Spirit, and Christ Jesus. Ponder that. I mean really go deep. We are make in THEIR image. 
"Then God said, "Let US make man in OUR image, according to OUR likeness; let them have dominion over the fish of the sea, over the birds of the air, and over the cattle, over all the earth and over every creeping thing that creeps on the earth. So God created man in His own image; in the image of God He created him, male and female He created them."
We are His workmanship. He knew us before we were ever born. He weaved us together within the womb, but even before then He planned our life perfectly for us. That's so much to ponder isn't it? 
"For we are His workmanship, created in Christ Jesus for good works, which God prepared…

Unexpected Blessings

The last words my dad spoke to me from his hospital bed were, "Rob, take care of your mom." Those are words I have never forgotten. I have not only honored them for my dad, but for my mom. I too am commanded by my Father to honor my mother and father.
"Honor your father and mother so that you may have a long life in the land that the Lord your God is giving you." Exodus 20:12
My mom gave her life in caring for me. On my first birthday, my very first Christmas, was spent in the ICU as I was very sick with pneumonia. A little later I would burn myself with spilled coffee. A few years later I would tumble down many stairs and once again spent time in the hospital. 
I remember all the times I was sick and could feel my mom's hand brush against my forehead as she checked for fever. All the times she must have stayed up all night as I was sick. 
When I was little she would pour me a bowl of Raisin Bran. I loved it. Only I didn't like the raisins. She would take t…

The Glassblower by Petra Durst-Benning

I came across this selection on Amazon. I had seen so many reviews that it intrigued me. I had never read anything from this German author. The cover caught my attention as did the description of this novel. 
It's a part of a trilogy. I am getting ready to open up book 2, The American Lady. I cannot wait to begin. I tell you this book marveled me. I wasn't quite sure what to expect. What a journey into another time and place. 
We travel to Germany where this novel is set. The year is 1890 and we find ourselves in Lauscha, Germany. The author did a fantastic job at the perfect description of not only the area, but circumstance, and heart of the characters. Her writing style flows so easily that the pages almost turn themselves. 
The characters are easy to love. Three sisters who are now wondering, after their father had passed from this earth,  how they will now provide for themselves. It isn't going to be easy, but these sisters show us how to prevail over challenges that…

Of Stillness and Storm by Michele Phoenix

This is my first novel read by Michele Phoenix. I love the premise of this novel and all that she opened my eyes to. We always hear of the 'calling' by missionaries. We want to go where God calls us. We want to make a difference. 
To be called by God isn't the same for every soul. We all fit differently into His plan. Our walk with Him isn't ALL we do for His name, but our relationship with Him, our intimate journey with our Savior. 
This novel is raw and transparent. For me, it was the journey of Lauren. We see that her husband feels called to work in Nepal and with the people, but we really don't read about much of his personal journey. 
Their son, Ryan, is struggling. We can see through the conversations he has with his parents that he is truly unhappy. We see the fall, but we don't really get a close glimpse into his heart. 
It is with Lauren that we journey. She feels alone and lost. Through her words we can 'feel' the pain in her heart. She is br…
