The Holman HCSB Study Bible for Women, Teal/Sage LeatherTouch by B&H Publishing Group

Okay ladies, if you are searching for a new study Bible this is my pick for my favorite Bible for women. Holman study Bibles are the best of the best. There is nothing that compares. I have study Bibles in HCSB and NKJV translation, but this Bible is special. It's created for women. 

It isn't exactly like a Holman HCSB Study Bible. This Study Bible gives us a guide to the women of the Bible. This is the first Bible I turn to when I'm studying and for my daily reading. 

First let me say the inside of this Bible is gorgeous!! Take a peek at the B&H Publishing Group for a look at the inside pages. It is a creamy/teal color all throughout the Bible. One of my favorite aspects is the word study. This is huge in studying the Word of God. The word studies give information on the Hebrew/Greek/Aramaic translations so that it's easy for us to comprehend. 

Another favorite of mine are the character profiles. This too is another amazing tool in studying the Word. When we know the backgrounds and personalities of those we are reading about it gives us a greater insight in understanding and we are able to relate to them even more so. 

There are amazing outlines and the introductions to the Books of the Bible are outstanding. 

I LOVE the Doctrine studies. You can find these all throughout the Bible. They are helpful in allowing us to have a greater understanding of the foundational beliefs of Christianity. 

There are hard questions throughout the Bible along with answers. These are questions that often stump us in our walk. We need to know and understand why we believe what we believe and these hard questions guides us to scripture and a greater understanding of how to answer others when the world asks us questions that we ourselves often ponder. "Can we be certain that there is an afterlife? What about reincarnation or nirvana, for example? Are we responsible for confessing another's sin? How could a just God command His people to destroy a nation? Why are we not to consult fortune-tellers? How can I trust a God who has allowed such terrible things to happen to people? And many many more questions. 

There too are essays on Biblical Womanhood. These include topics on Spiritual Motherhood, The Ministry of Hospitality, Marriage, The Judgement on the Woman, and many more. This Bible is jam-packed with great tools!

The concordance is outstanding and there are Bullet Notes for understanding the definition for words that we often pass over. 

There are a ton of features to this Bible. The charts, maps, and reconstructions are outstanding!! 

If you are searching for a Women's Study Bible this is the best! There are many colors to choose from. I have the chocolate genuine leather indexed and that is my favorite Bible. It is truly spectacular. So now all you have to do is pick out the color perfect for you. Really, this is one of those Bibles that you just love spending time in and one you would love to share. 

This women's study Bible 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…

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…

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…

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…
