My Thoughts: Like Bibles, I can never get enough of Daily Devotionals. When this one came up to review, I was super happy. I couldn’t wait to get my hands on it. The cover is super eye catching and the devotionals within are just what I need to read. Each day, there is a theme, a bible verse to accompany the theme, a devotional to read and then concludes with a prayer to say. I love that. I feel like my walk with God will improve with this devotional. The devotionals are wonderful and seem to be just what I need to hear/see. This is definitely worth high recommendations. Ms. Moore created a wonderful, 4 star daily devotional collection that I will use on a daily basis. I’ll be sharing this with lots of my friends and family and I hope that you will too!
My Thoughts: I love getting a good Bible, or a really good study Bible. One can never have too many of them! So, I was quite excited for the chance to see what this new Woman’s Study Bible was all about. Boy, let me tell you! I was not disappointed! I love this study Bible. It has a little bit of everything to help you understand the books of the Bible. Complete with areas to mark down your family tree, your marriage, and the women in your life that are important to you, this Bible is not only great for studying, it’s beautiful on the outside and the inside. It’s colorful and has beautiful flowers on the hardcover binding. The pages within are beautifully done and are broken down to help you study the Bible more thoroughly. The New King James version is easy to read and understand. If you are looking for something simple to carry with you, this is not the Bible for you. If you are looking for something 5 star worthy, that will not only be easy on the eyes with it’s large print wording and the lovely flowers on the outside but also easy to… Read more »
Title: THE SPIRIT OF LOVE Author: the spirit of love, known as glen Publisher: Aurora House Pages: 196 Genre: Spirituality/Poetry The Spirit of Love is a collection of short writings, poems and phrases written by a man who took himself into some of the darkest and most destructive depths that one can go with drug and alcohol addictions back in his early twenties.

With the love, support and guidance of his dear friend Edwina, in helping to bring these writings from the handwritten scribbles on paper to how they are presented today, The Spirit of Love is a reminder that no matter how dark, desperate, alone, helpless or trapped one believes they may be, the sheer beauty of the perfection of life in its totality is silently and patiently living within us all, and its love is so powerful that it can heal anything that has come to pass.

My Thoughts: This is my first Kristy Cambron book and it most certainly will not be my last. I wasn’t quite sure what to think of it when I got it, and read the synopsis but the cover was very captivating, so I gave it a try. I was not disappointed! In fact, I read this book in less than 48 hours. It was that good. From start to finish, Ms. Cambron creates a captivating plot line that will grip the reader til the end. Following Wren Lockhart literally left me on the edge of my seat, gripping the book, waiting to see what happened next in this beautifully woven tale. It was such a thrilling blend of mystery and intrigue! Ms. Cambron really did a wonderful job on the scenes of history and the characters that came to life. I felt a part of Wren and Agent Matthews’world of Houdini and romance. If you are looking for a laugh out loud book, don’t look here. If you are looking for a book that is full of detail and mystery, will sweep you off your feet, twist you up, and make you land in a place that you just want to… Read more »

My Thoughts: Let me get myself together for a moment. *Deep breaths*. Ok. There,that’s better. Where was I? Oh yes. I was going to tell you my thoughts on this book. This is my first Jennifer Slattery book. It most certainly will not be my last. It’s like this book is speaking to me. It’s a book on second chances, on honesty, on restoring faith and hope. That’s what this book did to me now, after recent troubles in my life. Through the characters, both good ones and bad, I fell in love with this book. Their stories showed me that if I believe, if I have faith, my heart will be restored. Leaning on God and understanding that it’s all in His time, His will, love can be restored no matter what. Letting go, forgiveness, and acceptance make up wonderful pages of this book. The characters blended perfectly with the plot line and captivated me, heart and soul. Ms. Slattery’s book is deserving of no less than 5 stars. If I could give it 5,000 stars I would. I highly recommend that you grab this book, devour it and feel the feels that I felt in this book.
