The Woman's Study Bible by Thomas Nelson

Thomas Nelson has this amazing Signature Series. Through this series I have been blessed to review many outstanding Bibles. The latest to arrive is The Woman's Study Bible. There are many great study Bibles out there. If your searching for a study directed at women this is your Bible!

The opening for each Book of the Bible is detailed with the title, author, date, background, themes and outline. The maps are bright and helpful. The concordance is one of the best I have seen. That is always a helpful tool to have in Bible study. It also includes an added index for all the special features.

There are quotes from women:
"The fact that I am a woman does not make me a different kind of Christian. The fact that I am a Christian makes me a different kind of woman." Elizabeth Elliot 

"Women should do less. Less of what we want, more of what God wants." Cindy Lewis Dake

"Living by faith is not easy, but it is essential. It is the only weapon for adversity that cannot fail." Dorothy Kelley Patterson

Charts that give insight to everything you could imagine. These charts of are one of my favorite tools in this Bible. Another feature is the Portraits of the women of the Bible. This is a feature that I have spent much time in. We have topical notes that give us great insight into living daily with godly principles.  We too have the Annotations tool that helps us identify people and places. There are Articles written by women for women that lead us to a Spirit filled life.

You could literally sit down and get lost in this Bible. All the added tools do not take away from the study of the Word, but help to increase your study. It aids to understanding and uncovering treasures that help us to be the women God has created us to be. I will surely use this Bible on a daily basis. The inside of this Bible is so pretty and elegant.

You can get this Bible in KJV, NKJV and NIV. How great is that? The NIV is newly published and available now.  I received the hardback version for review, but this study Bible comes in many leather choices and paperback. You will not go wrong with this Bible. There is so much this Bible offers to women. You can go to the Thomas Nelson website or click on any link I have provided and check it out further, even watching a video preview of this Bible.

This Woman's Study Bible was a gift from Thomas Nelson for sharing my review.

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 Illusionist's Apprentice by Kristy Cambron

I want to begin this review sharing two reviews I was blessed to do. The Butterfly and The Violinand A Sparrow in Terezin. For me these two novels were masterpieces. Works of such exquisite beauty. They showed that Kristy Cambron is gifted with the pen, a master storyteller. They remain two of my all-time top favorites. 
It was for this reason I was thrilled to be receiving a copy of The Illusionist's Apprentice. Once again Cambron shows us a masterpiece of bringing a story to readers that speaks of faith and our Lord. Although throughout the novel these aspects are not boldly proclaimed, but are masterfully weaved throughout the story. 
Magic and illusion are not the same. I love how she brings this truth. Love that the main character was an apprentice to the master of illusion. She takes the use of being an apprentice and walks that road with integrity and hope. When we choose to walk with Christ we are His apprentices. We are to walk as the main character, Wren Lockhart walked…

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…

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…

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…
