Review of The Very Best, Hands-On, Kinda Dangerous Family Activities by Tim Shoemaker

Oh, if only this book had been available a few years ago! For many years, it was my ministry to offer a short children's sermon each Sunday morning to the young people in our church and I was constantly in search of ideas and subjects to be used as object lessons. The Very Best, Hands-On, Kinda Dangerous Family Devotions is a new book by Tim Shoemaker and even though he has targeted family devotions, there are many suggestions that could be adapted for a group of children. In each of the 52…

Love’s Truest Hope by Hilton, Good and Alford

Three wonderful Amish stories by three great authors.

Mission of Love by Laura V. Hilton: Jace returns to his Amish community with missions to inner city youth on his mind. Twins Cindy and Linda are different as night and day. Linda tends to be quite selfish for an Amish girl and Cindy thinks of herself as less desirable than her twin, kind of like the heavier less attractive one. The developing of Cindy and her relationship with Jace and with God makes this story definitely one to…

The Noble Guardian by Michelle Griep

This was an interesting tale that reminded me of American old west stories. A bride traveling to her intended, held up by bandits, and rescued by a young, attractive lawman. But it was so much more. Set in 1815 England, Abby is betrothed to a titled bachelor by her father and stepmother. The stepmother pretty much kicks her out of the household and sends her on her way with an older driver and lady’s maid. The driver is killed by an ambush and the maid eventually heads back home leaving…

Review of Unexplainable Jesus: Rediscovering the God You Thought You Knew by Erica Wiggenhorn

I am always eager to have the chance to review a devotional or a Bible study guide and I can't begin to describe my appreciation of Unexplainable Jesus, a new 8-week Bible study of the New Testament book Luke. Rediscovering the God You Thought You Knew is the subtitle and author Erica Wiggenhorn shares eight "unexplainable topics" to help us understand the true Jesus. The eight chapters of this book are titled Unexplainable Beginnings, Unexplainable Birth, Unexplainable Introductions,…

Review of Living Lies by Natalie Walters

PTSD, depression, anxiety and suicidal urges are some of the serious issues in Living Lies and the author suggests that our society can harshly judge people who suffer from these illnesses. In this new book Natalie Walters has created several characters with mental health problems who become part of a serious crime. The suspense revolves around the unsolved murder of a teenage girl in Walton, Georgia and the assumption that she was killed by a former soldier who had served in Vietnam. Lane…

Review of The King's Mercy by Lori Benton

The King's Mercy can be labeled an epic historical read for more than one reason--it is 388 pages long and it is a story filled with lots of descriptive detail and numerous historical facts surrounding life in the mid 1700s! From the moment that Scotsman Alex MacKinnon is granted mercy from hanging and handed a seven year sentence to be an indentured servant there is unlimited excitement and drama. Through the author's vivid descriptions I felt like I was traveling with Alex to North…

Charming WWI Christian historical novel

⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️
One thing one can always depend upon when reading a story by Roseanna White is her attention to detail and accuracy. Reading one of her stories is a delightful way to have a history lesson. I must admit I have read a lot of WWII…

Review of The Pink Bonnet by Liz Tolsma

Before reading this book I was vaguely familiar with the story of Georgia Tann and the Tennessee Children's Home Society but I had no concept of the evil that occurred in this agency over the course of 26 years. There were over five thousand children kidnapped during that time for the sole purpose of being sold to the highest bidder. Parents in Memphis had to make sure that their children weren't left alone because of this dangerous woman who wasn't above kidnapping a child as they walked…

The Brides of the Big Valley by Wanda, Jean, and Richelle Brunstetter

I found these three stories to be heartwarming and fun being written by family members. Wanda Brunstetter authored Deanna’s Determination. Deanna, a member of the white top buggy community, lost her husband through an accident and is trying to raise her young son by herself. Her husband’s best friend is determined to help her all he can until an accident befalls him.

Wanda’s daughter in law, Jean Brunstetter, wrote Rose Mary’s Resolve. Rose Mary belongs to the black top buggy community…

There are some misconceptions by Maddy and a total surprise revealed by Nora. Knowing their grandmother wants to clean…

A Reluctant Bride by Jody Hedlund

I love reading the author’s notes on the background of a novel and this fictional story has lots of real facts and happenings included. History is so much more interesting learned this way. My eyes were opened to the poverty and slum areas of London around 1862. My heart broke for Mercy and how she had to live. The love she never received for herself she gave willingly to those around her in need. From helping those sick to begging for stale bread from a baker to share with the orphans on…
