Murder, Motherhood and Miraculous Grace by Debra Moerke

This was a compelling true story of one woman’s faith and openness to God’s calling. She and her husband, over a period of many years, had fostered 140 children. When asked to take in a drug addicted newborn they readily agreed. When asked later to take in that baby’s additional four siblings, they hesitantly agreed. Deb and her family came to love these children and shared with them God’s love for each one. But when a court order required them to send the children back to their birth mother…

A Match for Emma by Pepper Basham

I throughly enjoyed this story so much! It was great to visit the Mitchell family once again in the Blue Ridge Mountains. I’ve read several of the author’s books but these are my favorites. Being from the Deep South myself, I get a chuckle from some of the wonderful sayings and phrases used by the author to portray the mountain people in such a fun and loving way.

Emma, the youngest Mitchell, is saving as much money as she can to afford a trip to Europe to culinary…

Finding My Son by Eric Odell-Hein

This is a true story of one man’s journey to fatherhood. His wife from the moment they married wanted to be a mother. Eric was happy being a dual income family with the freedom to travel and pursue education with no encumbrances. After several years of marriage and no pregnancy they were both tested and found they both had issues. To please his wife they checked into possible adoption, although he wasn’t totally gung-ho on the idea.

I loved how his feelings began to…

100 Extraordinary Stories of Prayer for Courageous Girls by Jean Fischer

This would be such a great encouragement for any young girl, it was for even me, and I’m a grandmother!

On one hundred pages there are stories from currently famous women, women who made history, and women featured in the Bible. Two made such an impact and we don’t even know their names, the woman at the well, and the woman with an issue of blood. Each person has their own page telling how faith and prayer changed them with a relating Bible verse at the…

For it is good to be children sometimes, and never better than at Christmas, when its mighty Founder was a child himself.”

12 Days at Bleakly Manor

This Christmas story, sure to one day be a classic, kept me intrigued right up until the end. What a great Christmas movie this would make with its blend of quirky characters! Names that almost seemed to…

The 40-Day Sugar Fast by Wendy Speake

This is an encouraging book to let go of sugar and turn to Jesus instead.

What this is not, a diet book or recipe book. It is a chance to get closer to Jesus by concentrating on him instead of food or more specifically sugar. There is a page a day for the fourty days to read and “chew” on so to speak. I’ve participated in a couple of the fasts and they have opened my eyes to God’s sweetness during the process and drawn me closer to him. I would encourage anyone to…

One More River to Cross

I’ve read other novels by Jane Kirkpatrick and I enjoy the fact that she uses real historical events, although partly fictionalized. In her author’s notes in the back of One More River to Cross, she acknowledges that most of the characters in the book are used with their real names. She even gives a history of what happens to them “on down the road.”

This was a brave group of…

Choices by Jacquelyn Lynn

Choices, perfect title for this book, and there were many choices to be made. Some good ones, but many bad. Imagine being a college student coming home at 5am from a friend’s house. She texts you as you’re halfway home. You look down for a brief couple of seconds, just enough time to veer off into the bicycle lane. Thump, you stop suddenly as a body hurls across your windshield. In a panic you leave the scene in a break neck hurry, not even checking on the person you…

Engaged: Surrendering the Future is a sweet romance, set in the beautiful Adirondack country of New York State. This is the third in Julie Arduini’s Surrendering Time Series. Although this novel can be read as a stand-alone, the other two books introduce readers to key characters who play a major role in this story.

Trish Maxwell returns to Speculator Falls, but she left some bitter feelings and hurting hearts in the small town when she departed for what she…

Practically Married by Karin Beery

I’m still sitting here in the afterglow as I turn the last page of Practically Married. This was the first book I’ve read by Karin Beery and I throughly enjoyed it. The characters were so fun to read about. I really felt for Ashley, being alone except for an elderly aunt and uncle. Taking a chance on a guy she meets online but not in person. And what happens when she gets to his hometown only to be waiting for him but he never shows up? Wow! This will take you on a journey of grief,…
