David (90 Days With A Heart Like His) by Beth Moore

This signature series is simply amazing! I began the series studying, "Paul". (Check out my review). I was blown away by that study and had to see what the others held. There are four in all. Paul, David, John, and Jesus. I received the study of, "David", and was once again in awe of the book I held in my hands. 

Not only are these studies beautiful, they behold a wonderment that takes the reader on a personal journey of deep growth. In this case with the study of David, Beth takes our hand and heart and we travel together to growing a heart more like His. 

This study of David was intimate. We begin the study in 1 Samuel. We move to 2 Samuel and touch on many Psalms that correlate to the lesson and David's words. We take our journey through 1 Chronicles and end with Jeremiah. Beth doesn't take us verse by verse through every book I've mentioned, but she does share a valuable amount of scripture. Each study begins with the scripture for the lesson. Beth shares a few questions to ponder. I can tell you that these are deep questions that if enough time is given by the reader, opens the heart and allows the Spirit to speak. The lessons are one to two pages long and Beth ends each lesson with a beautiful prayer that is brought out with scripture. I love how she takes the scripture and teaches us to make it personal. 

This is a study for 90 days. You could easily begin each morning with study. End your day with study or just simply open it up and travel your way through any way you like. In doing a review it's hard to take 90 days, but I made my entire way through this study and feel that I know David as I've never known him before. 

We simply journey through the life of David. We see his moments of splendor where blessings flowed and those in which he was crying out to God. I loved this study. It brought me closer to truly understanding that Jesus loves me. He just loves me. It's nothing I do. I could never earn His love. I could never be perfect. What I can do is simply give Him my all, my heart, my love and with that blessings will surly flow from a God who is in total control of my life. 

I love how Beth teaches. She just makes everything personal. She brought David to life within these pages and encouraged me to dig deeper and to know him even more. As each lesson begins Beth gives us the scripture for the lesson, but what I really love is that she allows us to go as deep as we want. She meets us right where we are and takes us as far as we want to travel. This is a study I greatly suggest to those who love studying the Word. If you have read, A Heart Like His, this study will be familiar to you. But one that you will enjoy immensely. 

This study was a gift from B&H Publishing Group for sharing my review with you.

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…
