You Carried Me by Melissa Ohden

Posted by greatbuys4less on February 18, 2017 at 12:55 AM Comments comments (0)

This very personal story of an abortion survivor really touched my heart and gave me a new perspective on faith and forgiveness. Melissa was fourteen when she learns that she survived a botched abortion. This memoir gives the details of her search for all the answers to her questions about her biological parents and gives insite into what it is like to feel the anger, hurt and pain of not being wanted, as she thought. Then she gets to meet her birth mother. Very well written and highly recommended.

The One Year Book of Healing

Posted by greatbuys4less on February 17, 2017 at 1:30 PM Comments comments (0)

Dr Reggie Anderson as compiled a really nice devotional book that focuses on Bible verses and commentary that pertain to physical, spiritual and emotional healing. Each day has a Bible verse, followed by a story or thought from Dr Reggie that is thought provoking. Then he has a RX for each day, a action you can take to make you feel better. Then there is a short prayer. Also at the beginning of each month there is a page long checkup, which is an overview for the month ahead. Very unique devotional, worth the read.

NIV Holy Bible for Girls Journal Edition

Posted by greatbuys4less on January 20, 2017 at 1:20 AM Comments comments (0)

This is a really nice hardcover NIV version of the Bible, perfect for gift giving with presentation page. I love the colors and design. There is lots of room for journaling with lines and space on every page, from top to bottom. It has a nice ribbon marker and a matching band for closure. The size is really nice for carrying, wider than regular Bible, but not as tall. The only thing I didn't like about this Bible is that the print is quite small but the type is darker and pages not too thin so ok.

I think older girls would enjoy this Bible too!

A Spectacle of Glory by Joni Eareckson Tada

 This daily devotional is so very lovely! First of all the size of this book is perfect for placing in your purse to carry with you so you can read it while waiting during errands, etc. Love the padded cover. Each day has a Bible verse for you to look up and read, then a wonderful insight that sparks you into thinking very differently about life. Then a prayer that is fits into every day life and that anyone can pray. Such an encouraging little book!

In All Things by Marta Curti

Posted by greatbuys4less on September 22, 2016 at 2:10 PM Comments comments (2)

In All Things New  is beautifully written in a form that kept me wanting to read on and on. It is the story of Penny Rose who has grown up, virtually alone, going from one fostor home to another with no direction or love to keep her stable or allow for a feeling of family. Finally she comes up with a plan to make a change, which I won't go further in describing because I think it would take away from the reading. But once she has the plan in place and as time goes on, her life goes from sad to something very unexpected. With many bird references which make this novel so unique, flight and fancy seem to follow Penny through her life. 

I love how this book flows with beautiful form and such grace. At first with the narrative jumping between three perspectives, I was a little confused but once I began to get the feel for the story and characters then I had no problem following the story. Also a warning, I didn't realize this before reading but she does write about a rape and abuse and it is very graphic but done in a tasteful way. This would be the only negative things I could say about the book.

Man in the Blue Moon by Michael Morris

Posted by greatbuys4less on April 13, 2016 at 2:15 PM Comments comments (0)

Man in the Blue Moon is set in an area of Florida that I am very familiar with, not far from my home town. The author does a great job of describing the area, styles, characters,etc just as I would invision them during this time period, during World War 1. From the beginning you feel the frustration and hope for Ella. The characters were presented in a way that makes you feel they are a part of your family. I would give it a 5 star except that I feel there were too many minor characters that were presented through out and the storyline became tangled with several stories that really didn't matter to the reader. But overall I enjoyed the book very much.

The Surprising Imagination of C. S. Lewis

Posted by greatbuys4less on April 4, 2016 at 12:30 AM Comments comments (0)

This book is more than a scholarly look at Lewis' works and the imagination within, it is a fascination look at the man himself and those of like minds during his lifetime. 
If you are a true Lewis fan or just getting to know him and his writing, this book is a must read. The authors do an excellent job of sharing many of Lewis' best moments and memories to demonstrate how imagination works through each of his writings. 
There is so much substance within this book that I will be reading it again and referencing it many times for my study group and for personal study.

My God and My All-The Life of Saint Francis of Assisi

Posted by greatbuys4less on November 5, 2015 at 1:15 AM Comments comments (0)

What a beautifully written biography of this most wonderful Saint! As we travel from his birth, through his life as a missionary and to his death we share his hopes, struggles and his close walk and love of God. We also get to meet many of the people who followed him and learn so much of the history of the time of his life and the know world. Being that I am not of Catholic faith and don't know much about their traditions, I had to step away from the book at times to do additional research. (only reason for the 4 star rating) But that is what a book is suppose to do is to spark an interest for learning something new and this book does that for me. I learned so much from this book about Saint Francis that I didn't know about and also gained a new perspective into his life. There are so wonderful thoughts and phrases in this book that touched my heart.

"Despite a perfect storm of hostile forces that threaten to deny children a healthy, ahppy childhood, courageous parents and teachers can turn the tide. Yes we can reclaims childhood" from Their Name Is Today. I love this because even though I am not a parent I have neices and nephews, friends and just all the beautiful children I come in contact with each day that I am touched by. This book is not only for parents but for any one who has a heart for children. I love the stories he tells to illustrate the ideas of each chapter, discussing everything from difficult children to dealing with today's technology, good and bad. I would recommend for anyone who loves children.

Book Review-wisdom of the sadhu; Teachings of Sundar Singh

Posted by greatbuys4less on January 22, 2015 at 6:40 PM Comments comments (0)

I had heard of Sundar Singh many years ago but never knew much about his teachings or writings. So thankful that I was presented with a copy of this wonderful collection of "Scenes" and "Conversations" taken from accounts by Singh himself, writers who knew him, his books, interviews and articles. The first part of this collection is the "Scenes" which contains impressions from key events in his life and the second part "Conversations" consists of dialogues that come from his books and his teachings. 

I have referred back to this book many times since finishing to read one of the parables or stories as encouragement or as a devotion for my day. You can see Jesus' teachings reflected throughout and a new perspective on our relationship with God and others. 

Kim Comer has done a wonderful job of compiling and editing the information as it is presented in a really good flow and each section smartly leads to the other. I really enjoyed this read.
