LitFuse Blog Tour Review: Stepping On Cheerios by Betsy Singleton Synder + GIVEAWAY

LitFuse Blog Tour Review: Stepping On Cheerios by Betsy Singleton Synder + GIVEAWAY

My Thoughts As a mom of two teenaged boys, I find it hard, sometimes, to find time to do anything. It’s a hectic, crazy time being a mom! It’s hard to make sure they are taken care of, go to work, come home, cook dinner, spend time with them and my husband, and still find God time. It really is hard sometimes. But, my mom said something once, and this book kind of reminds of it. She told me “Jesus came to you, why can’t you go to Him?” That’s so true. Why can’t I make the time to seek Him out no matter what whirlwind parenthood throws at me?  Ms. Synder takes the hustle, bustle hectic life of being a working mom, wife, and child of God, and tells us how she found the strength to deal with it all. She creates this book in a way that is never boring, always leaving me with a chuckle. Learning to put God in the center of all and realizing that this crazy thing we parents call life is not that hard if we put Him at the front of all we do. I definitely enjoyed this fast, interesting read. Ms…. Read more »

LitFuse Blog Tour Review: Driver Confessional by David Winters

LitFuse Blog Tour Review: Driver Confessional by David Winters

My Thoughts I must be honest and say that when I chose to review this book, I wasn’t exactly sure if I would like it. I mean, I’m eclectic reader when it comes to Christian books….contemporary, thriller, suspense, historical, chick lit. You name, I’ll try it. However, I just wasn’t sure with this one. But, when I sat down to read it, I was quite surprised at the intensity of the story and the way it pulled me in! An up and down, in and out, twisty thrill ride that I won’t soon forget!   David Winters takes his readers on a whirlwind ride (quite literally, since the main character, Antonio, is a Buber driver!) and delivers us to a spot that will leave us wondering what just happened and how can we get more of it. His characters are complex and well rounded, perfect for their roles in the book. This book really had me thinking about what kinds of things really do get talked about in a taxi cab or paid driver. I can’t imagine it’s easy to feel safe all the time!  I  really liked Antonio and getting to know him. Mr. Winters made Antonio’s character superbly… Read more »

LitFuse Blog Tour Review: The Great Chattanooga Bicycle Race by Mike H. Mizrahi

LitFuse Blog Tour Review: The Great Chattanooga Bicycle Race by Mike H. Mizrahi

My Thoughts I enjoyed this book so much more than I thought I would. The author is new to me and his writing style is refreshing! The characters within the book really spoke to me and came alive as I followed young Anne and Peter throughout this story. I felt as if I was the one in the middle of it all. I love when a book does that to me. This book is filled with life lessons of having faith, hope, perseverance and relying on the Lord above.  Young Anne, bless her. I could see a lot of my own stubborn self in her! She’s a sweet soul and wouldn’t take being told no she couldn’t do something for an answer! She was going to do it and that was that. A woman in the south riding a man’s contraption! Unheard of, but not for Anne! She was going to ride and not be stopped. It was interesting seeing the events of that played out, especially knowing that in today’s society women can do just about anything they want to.  I loved Peter’s character, too. Watching him interact with Anne and the other characters was captivating. He struggled so… Read more »

My Thoughts If you are looking for a closer walk with God, then please, look no further than this book. It is a book that is well written, and well organized.
