Review of PARTLY CLOUDY WITH SCATTERED WORRIES

“Praying is a choice. It is a conscious decision to turn our minds from worry onto God’s abilities to deliver us, help us, or guide us. It’s a hard choice because we can easily believe lies like: worry feels good, it works, or it is necessary,” Kathy Collard Miller writes in her book, Partly Cloudy with Scattered Worries.

Daylight Saving (Slaving) Time

I’m sorry folks but I am going to lay it on the line: I HATE Daylight Saving Time. Why in the world would we simple-minded humans think we are smart enough to mess with the sun’s time?

 

When I was a kid I thought having an extra hour in the evenings to play outside was wonderful, but now as an adult that extra hour only adds to the days workload. Not to mention the change messes up my sleep pattern. For those of us who are creatures of habit this is a very stressful time. In…

Review of VISIBLE THREAT

“Bad things happen to everyone. No one by their behavior can store up any immunity from disaster or tragedy. All any of us can control is how we respond when tough times come. This does not diminish God or his sovereignty in my mind,” Brinna’s mother comforts her in Janice Cantore’s novel, Visible Threat.

Book Review - Wishing On Buttercups by Miralee Ferrell

A nice historical with a little mystery, a couple of very different romances, and some realistic family dynamics that are well developed and fascinating.

I have to admit that I didn't particularly like, Beth, the heroine. She came across as self absorbed, she deliberately misinterprets people's actions and words, she is naïve to the point of gullible, and waffles in her actions at times. I also…

“For the first time, I sensed that Matthew’s life was truly in danger. An intense emotion rolled over me like a dump truck. This little boy was only four years old and his entire life lay before him. I pleaded with God, Please see that Matthew has a great purpose and heal his body,” Celeste Goodwin writes in her book, A Boy Back From Heaven.

Review of TIDE AND TEMPEST

“No. Braedon’s death, and that of her baby, were her punishment, and no penance, no matter how severe, would ever be enough. Wasn’t Captain Morgan’s reappearance proof of that? What other reason could there be for his coming except that God wanted to remind her of her guilt?” Tillie asks in Elizabeth Ludwig’s novel, Tide and Tempest.

You can go back again...with plenty of caffeine

Happy Friday readers, a frequent question writers are asked when they’re first published: Is this the first book you ever wrote? Often on television talk shows we hear about so-and-so’s first book hitting one of the coveted bestseller lists. Although there are exceptions to the rule (J.K. Rowling comes to mind….) in most cases, the book in question is the first published work. The writer might have penned any number of novels before creating a story that resonated…
