NASB Note-Taker's Bible Published by Zondervan

Are you a note-taker?  I know that if I'm not taking notes while listening at church, chances are I'm not going to remember as much.  I love to take notes!  When I saw this new Bible published by Zondervan, I made sure to sign up to try it out.

From the Back Cover:
No more cramped writing in tiny margins—the NASB Note-Taker’s Bible makes it easy to stay organized and neat. Readers will be able to personalize the text of God’s Word to their lives like never before and will treasure it as a record of their spiritual journey.

  • Deluxe wide margins for note takers
  • Complete NASB text
  • Double column text for easy reading
  • Words of Christ in red letter
My Review:
 As a note-taker, I'm looking forward to using this at church and for my personal Bible study.  It will be quite an asset to have my notes right on hand while my Bible is open.  Usually, I have piles of notes I've taken and don't know what to do with them all!  The margins are definitely wide enough to add a good amount of writing and the print is still large enough to read comfortably.  Even though it is a hardcover Bible, it stays open easily and lays flat. This Bible also includes several sections in the back: a Concordance, Promises from the Bible, Perspectives from the Bible, Ministry of Jesus, Teachings of Jesus, Miracles of Jesus and Parables of Jesus.  Overall, it is a great Bible that will encourage note-taking which will foster learning.

The Secret of Pembrooke Park by Julie Klassen

Julie Klassen's newest book has released, The Secret of Pembrooke Park.   Are you looking for a fun, mysterious, historical novel?  Then make sure to read below and find out about this great new fun read. 

From the Back Cover:
Abigail Foster is the practical daughter. She fears she will end up a spinster, especially as she has little dowry, and the one man she thought might marry her seems to have fallen for her younger, prettier sister.

Facing financial ruin, Abigail and her father search for more affordable lodgings, until a strange solicitor arrives with an astounding offer: the use of a distant manor house abandoned for eighteen years. The Fosters journey to imposing Pembrooke Park and are startled to find it entombed as it was abruptly left: tea cups encrusted with dry tea, moth-eaten clothes in wardrobes, a doll's house left mid-play...

The handsome local curate welcomes them, but though he and his family seem acquainted with the manor's past, the only information they offer is a stern warning: Beware trespassers drawn by rumors that Pembrooke Park contains a secret room filled with treasure.

This catches Abigail's attention. Hoping to restore her family's finances--and her dowry--Abigail looks for this supposed treasure. But eerie sounds at night and footprints in the dust reveal she isn't the only one secretly searching the house.

Then Abigail begins receiving anonymous letters, containing clues about the hidden room and startling discoveries about the past.

As old friends and new foes come calling at Pembrooke Park, secrets come to light. Will Abigail find the treasure and love she seeks...or very real danger?

My Review:
 Julie Klassen is one of my favorite authors.  Her books have always been a delight to read and this one was no different! I absolutely loved it from cover to cover.  The mysterious plot was filled with unsolved murders, forgotten history, and whispers about a hidden treasure.  Julie's portrayal of the characters really made the story come to life.  Their thoughts and emotions were well communicated. This period in history is also fascinating, and I love to learn more about the history of the Regency era.  If you're looking for a fun new book to pick up to read, make sure to pick up this novel by Klassen.  You won't be disappointed!

Fire Up the Romance this Holiday with @RobinLeeHatcher’s “Love Without End” Kindle Fire Giveaway!

Robin Lee Hatcher has come out with another book set in Kings Meadow called Love Without End.  What is it about Kings Meadow that helps people heal from their past hurts?  Read below to find out about the book, my review and about the author.

 About the book: Love Without End || A King's Meadow Romance (Thomas Nelson, November 2014)

Chet and Kimberly have both failed when it comes to love. Will they risk their hearts to love again?

Chet Leonard's life was forever changed when his 17-year-old son died and then, soon after, his wife walked out on their family. Over two years later, all he wants to do is hold onto his horse ranch and raise his remaining sons to be honorable men.

Kimberly Welch, widowed mother of Tara, a rebellious 15-year-old, has reached the end of her finances and nearly the end of her rope. She and Tara come to King's Meadow to try to piece their lives back together again. Kimberly has no intention of becoming involved with the residents of this remote mountain community and certainly not with any man.
When octogenarian Anna McKenna returns to King's Meadow and to the Leonard ranch, she becomes an agent of change and healing for the two hurting families. With her help, Kimberly and Chet may discover that true love has no end.

My Review:

This story was an interesting read since I had already read A Promise Kept which was also set in Kings Meadow.  You can read my review of that book by clicking here.  This book actually tells not only the story of Kimberly Welch, but also has flashbacks to Anna McKenna's story too.  I'm glad that Robin decided to continue the King Meadow's story and give Chet his own book.  He was definitely let down hard in A Promise Kept by Allison and needed a story of his own.  Robin did a great job drawing the reader into the story and the lives of the characters.  Their stories were written realistically, full of raw emotion and vulnerability. I'm looking forward to reading the next book in this new series--Whenever You Come Around.

Nelson's Illustrated Bible Dictionary

 Are you looking for a Bible dictionary that will aid in your personal Bible study or help with Bible study class preparations?  Thomas Nelson has published a new and enhanced Bible dictionary.  Below you can read a product description and my personal review.


From the Back Cover:

Now with a fresh new look and full-color Fan-Tab Thumb-Index Reference System, Nelson's Illustrated Bible Dictionary, New and Enhanced Edition puts a wealth of up-to-date and reliable information at your fingertips.

Designed, written, and edited with the needs of general readers in mind, this comprehensive Bible dictionary contains over 7,000 individual entries on the people, places, things, and doctrines of the Bible.  Christians who want to make their Bible study more rewarding, Sunday school teacher and Bible class leaders looking for help in making their lessons more effective, and anyone who wants to understand the Word of God and Bible backgrounds more fully will find what they need here.

Packed with information and special features:
     *  More than 500 updated or enhanced full-color photographs to illustrate and clarify important  
         Bible subjects
     *  An extensive cross-reference system for use with the most popular English translations of the
     *  Helpful outlines of the books of the Bible designed to aid effective study and teaching
     *  A map index and full-color maps for understanding major periods of biblical history
     *  Articles that address special topics, such as studying the Bible, comparing Bible translations, 
         and recent discoveries in archaeology
     *  Charts, maps, tables, and The Visual Survey of the Bible for understanding Bible history at a 
     *  Large type and a new full-color page design

My Review:

What a great new dictionary!  I love several things about this new enhanced version.  First, in the opening pages, 5 steps are given to instruct readers how to use this Bible dictionary in your regular Bible reading to enhance your learning of Scripture.  Second, the Visual Survey of the Bible is great!  I love being able to see the history of Scripture put on one comprehensive  timeline.  It gives a great overview of Scripture.  Third, the pictures and maps used throughout the dictionary are wonderful.  They had another great layer of interest!  Now, I must say as with all literature, you must compare men's words with Scripture.  Men aren't always correct in their interpretation of Scripture and so must be thoroughly cross examined with what God's Word says.    There may be other theories represented in these pages that you will not agree with... such as the six days of creation not being a literal 24 hour period (pg. 278).  In spite of some difference like these,  I'm excited to be able to use this new dictionary to enhance my own personal Bible study.  This will be a great new edition to our library.

Where Treetops Glisten by Tricia Goyer, Cara Putman and Sarah Sundin

Don't you just love a good Christmas story?  I love watching all the fun Christmas shows during this time of year.  And there is nothing like having hot cranberry tea, listening to Christmas music and reading a great book!  Three great authors have compiled three stories into one novel for your enjoyment this Christmas season.  Where Treetops Glisten is a group of stories about the Turner family set during WWII.  You can read below and find out about the book, and my thoughts about these three stories.

From the Back Cover:
The crunch of newly fallen snow, the weight of wartime.  Siblings forging new paths and finding love in three stories, filled with the wonder of Christmas.  Turn back the clock to a different time, listen to Bing Crosby sing of sleigh bells in the snow, as the realities of America's involvement in the Second World War change the lives of the Turner family in Lafayette, Indiana.

     In Cara Putman's White Christmas, Abigail Turner is holding down the Home Front as a college student and part-time employee at a one-of-a-kind candy shop.  Loss of a beau to the war has Abigail skittish about romantic entanglements--until a hard-working young man with a serious problem needs her help.
     Abigail's brother Pete is a fighter pilot hero returned from the European Theatre in Sarah Sundin's I'll Be Home for Christmas, trying to recapture the hope and peace his time at war has eroded.  But when he encounters a precocious little girl in need of Pete's friendship, can he convince her widowed mother that he's no longer the bully she once knew?
     In Tricia Goyer's Have Yourself a Merry Little Christmas, Meredith Turner, "Merry" to those who know her best, is using her skills as a combat nurse on the frontline in the Netherlands.  Halfway around the world from home, Merry never expects to face her deepest betrayal head on, but that's precisely what God has in mind to redeem her broken heart.
     The Turner family believes in God's providence during such a tumultuous time.  Can they absorb the miracle of Christ's birth and His plan for the future?

My Review:
I just loved this book!  It was so fun to just sit, relax and enjoy a good story... well, actually three good stories.  Each of the characters has a lot to reconcile in his or her own life.  Of course, all of trials that they are enduring are also shrouded by the war raging around the world.  It's hard to imagine how much families had to give up in order to help in the cause for war.  My generation has not had to face that hardship, but reading stories like these gives a great glimpse into our history that we should not forget.  If you're looking for a great heartwarming set of stories for this holiday season, make sure to pick up Where Treetops Glisten.  This would also make a fabulous gift for the book reader on your Christmas list!

Look Inside the Time of Jesus by Lois Rock; Illustrated by Lorenzo Orlandi

The Time of Jesus is a lift-the-flap discovery board book for children ages 5-7 year olds (Grade level: Kindergarten--2nd grade). 

From the Back Cover:
Jesus took his message to all kinds of people in all kinds of places--from the shores of Lake Galilee to the bustling streets of Jerusalem.  This book takes you right into the world that he knew, with appealing illustrations and flaps that you open to reveal all kinds of fascinating details.

My Review:
I love the fact that this book is a lift-the-flap book.  My kids just love to open the flaps and see what is hiding inside!  The pictures are fun to look at with all the details spread throughout the pages.  The book begins in Bethlehem with Jesus' birth, walks throughout His life and ends with the garden tomb.  It's fun for kids to see pictures of how things were back in Biblical times.  If you're looking
for a fun Christmas present this year, consider picking up this great
book to put under the tree.

Eight Twenty Eight: When Love Didn't Give Up by Ian and Larissa Murphy

Do you remember a video that went viral back in May 2012 about a couple sharing their story about a heartbreaking car accident that changed their lives forever?  Watch the video below to refresh your memory.  This story is now being published by B&H publishing group.

From the Back Cover:

What if that thing you really feared happened?  Would the joy you hold pop? Or would you experience love and joy deeper than you can imagine?
They met in college and fell in love.  They talked about getting married, and he started looking for a ring.  They dreamed about life together, a life of beauty and joy, raising babies and laughing with friends and growing old.
They did not imagine a car accident.  They did not imagine his brain injury.  They did not dream about the need for constant care and a wheelchair and fear that food might choke him.
And they could not have imagined how persistent love would be.  Theirs and God's.
Ian and Larissa Murphy tell their story of love in Eight Twenty Eight.  Except, it's not just their love story.  Really, it's yours as well.  Read and gain a picture of love that will challenge all you think you know about what is true and what persists.

Ian and Larissa Murphy are husband and wife.  They love one another.  They laugh together.  They seek to serve God together all while dealing with the implications of life in a world marked by suffering, yet compelled by love.  They live in Pennsylvania where they watch as God works all things together for good.

My Review:
I remember watching the video about this young couple and their commitment to each other.  The sacrificial love that Larissa has for Ian is beautiful.  In this book,  Larissa tells their story with truthful reality.  This book is an easy read as far as the print and ease of reading the story, but the story itself is not easy to read.  It will confront those hard places that no one really wants to think about, but it will also point to One who is far greater than our worst circumstance.  Pick up this book and see Christ's light shinning through this couple.

To Everything a Season by Lauraine Snelling

Lauraine Snelling has returned to the Red River Valley for a new series called Song of Blessing.  Her first novel of the series just released and is called To Everything a Season. 

From the Back Cover:
Trygve Knutson is devoted to his family and his community.  With his job on the construction crew, he is helping to build a future for the North Dakota town of Blessing.  Though he loves his home, he sometimes dreams of other horizons--especially since meeting Miriam Hastings.
Miriam is in Blessing to get practical training to become an accredited nurse.  She's been promised a position in the Chicago women's hospital that will enable her to support her siblings and her ailing mother.  Although eager to return to her family, Miriam is surprised to find how much she enjoys the small town of Blessing.  And her growing attachment to Trygve soon has her questioning a future she always considered set in stone.
When a family emergency calls Miriam home sooner than planned, will she find a way to return?  If not, will it mean loosing Trygve--and her chance at love--for good?

My Review:
When I signed up to grab this book, I thought this would be good based on other Lauraine Snelling books I had read before.  After I began reading the book, I quickly realized that it felt like I should already be familiar with these characters from something written previously.  So, I began looking at her other novels and realized that while this is the first book in this series, Song of Blessing, the characters are from a previous series.  I would definitely recommend picking up the Home to Blessing series and also An Untamed Heart since that is where the story begins.  I think you'd probably have more of a connection with the characters in this new series.  Even with this disadvantage, I thought that the story was well written, and not too hard to pick up not having read the previous series.  It did seem to give more background information than have a thrilling story line.  And just to warn you, Trygve and Miriam don't even meet until chapter 23 in the book, and there are only 33 chapters in the whole book.  I think the women nurses and doctors in the story add a fun historical fact in this story.  The men would of definitely had a hard time with that.
If you're already familiar with the characters of the Red River Valley, make sure to pick up this next series and continue the story.

THE PROMISE Kindle HDX Giveaway from @BethWiseman!

Did you hear about Beth Wiseman's latest book, The Promise?   This book is actually based on a story about a close friend of the author.  Read below and find out about this new thrilling story. 

About the book: 

Mallory's search for happiness leads her to a faraway place. There she finds heartache, betrayal---and danger.
Mallory Hammond is determined that no one will stand in the way of her goal---to save a life. She had that chance years ago, and she failed to take it, leaving her adrift and in search of the real meaning of her life. Finally, she meets a man online from a volatile corner of the world who offers her the chance to find that purpose. But she will have to leave everyone she loves behind in order to take it.
Tate Webber has loved Mallory for many years. He understands that Mallory will never be happy with him until her deepest heart's desire is satisfied. When Mallory decides to travel across the world to fulfill her dreams, Tate begs her not to go but tries to give her the space she needs. Mallory embarks on her dangerous journey only to discover how swiftly and easily promises can be broken. And Mallory can only pray that she will make it out alive.
Inspired by actual events, The Promise is a riveting love story that asks the question: how far will we go for love?

My Review:
This story was filled with suspense wondering if Mallory would get out of Pakistan alive.  The story is definitely a learning experience for the character and the reader who is not familiar with the middle eastern lifestyle and customs.  Of course, it is quite shocking the way these men treat the women of their society.  After reading this book, you'll be reminded of how great we have it here in the U.S..  Women are so blessed here in our country.  We are respected, listened to, and can move about without fear.  If you're looking for an interesting story that will remind you of how great it is to call this country home, pick up The Promise!  This is a riveting story that will have you reading into the wee hours of the morning.

Kindle HDX Giveaway and Facebook Author Party with Judith Miller!

Judith Miller has started another new series called Refined by Love ,and The Brickmaker's Bride is the first book! Read below and find out more about this great new series.  Also, don't forget to enter the giveaway and join the Facebook Party on November 4th!

About the book: 

Bestselling Author Judith Miller Debuts Historical Series Set in West Virginia
Yearning for a fresh start, Ewan McKay travels with his aunt and uncle from northern Scotland to West Virginia, promising to trade his skills in the clay business for financial assistance from his uncle Hugh. Hugh purchases a brickmaking operation from a Civil War widow and her daughter, but it's Ewan who gets the business up and running again. Ewan seeks help from Laura, the former owner's daughter, and he feels a connection with her, but she's being courted by another man---a lawyer with far more social clout and money than Ewan. Besides, Ewan has resolved he'll focus on making the brickmaking operation enough of a success that he can become a partner in the business and be able to afford to bring his sisters over from Scotland.
But when Hugh signs a bad business deal, all Ewan's hard work may come to naught. As his plans begin to crumble, Laura reveals something surprising. She and her mother may have a way to save the brickworks, and in turn Ewan may have another shot at winning Laura's heart.

My Review:
Judith Miller has done a great job weaving together a story set after the Civil War in 1868.  Many homes experienced some sort of loss, and the years after that war would have been quite trying.  I love Laura's spirit and how she is involved with the brickyard.  The role of women was seen so differently back then, and Laura's character brought a lot of life to the story.  It was eye-opening to read about all the hardships they faced in the aftermath of the Civil War.  Many times we just read about an event, but don't pause to think about all the changes and hardships people would of gone through during such times.  Stories like this one, make us think.  This is a great new series to pick up and add to your library!

Guess Who Noah's Boat by Matt Mitter; illustrated by Ela Jarzabek

Guess Who Noah's Boat is a board book written for children ages 2 to 4 years.  Each page has flaps to lift up and the book is a nice sturdy.  The illustrations are cute and done in bright, vibrant colors.

I was excited to read this book with my 2 year old son.  He loved the pictures and was thoroughly excited about lifting each of the flaps throughout the book.  We even played peek-a-boo with the front cover since the lion's hands fold down to reveal 2 little bunnies.  My son had also learned about the story of Noah's Ark in his class at church recently, so this was a fun little story for us to read together.

I would definitely recommend this little book!  It would make a great gift or just another fun book to add to your growing library.

Surprise at Yorktown (Adventures in Odyssey's Imagination Station book 15) by Marianne Hering and Nancy I. Sanders

The Imagination Station series headed out on an adventure that traveled back to the American Revolution that lasted for not only one book, but 3 different books.  The first book, The Red Coats are Coming (book 13) started this fun adventure of exploring the American Revolution by taking the cousins, Beth and Patrick, back in time to Yorktown.  You can read my review of that book by clicking here.  The second book, Captured on the High Seas (book 14), takes the cousins for an adventure on a American ship that is captured by the British.  And the newest and last book in this adventure, Surprise at Yorktown (book 15), ends with the surrender of the British at Yorktown.

Find out more about this newest book by reading the summary about the book and my review.
From the Back Cover:
"We need a miracle," Patrick said, "or this war will never end!"

Travel through history with Patrick and Beth and witness the battle of Yorktown, 1781.  Trouble starts in an underground den where the cousins discover British General Cornwallis's secret plan to win the war.  They must escape to warn George Washington--the future of the United States is at stake.  Along the way they meet a mysterious courier, James Armistead.  But is he traitor or friend?  In this final American Revolution adventure, Patrick and Beth struggle to escape from the enemy camp, survive a terrifying storm, and doge exploding cannonballs.  Will they be able to save their country--and their lives?

My Review:
I thought that this was a great wrap up to the 3 book series on the American Revolution.  I love how the story brings history to life and helps kids to connect the events of history together in their minds.  It also stirs up the want to actually see these sites in real life!  How fun would it be to read this 3 book series and then have a family trip to where it all really happened?!   These books are so great for kids ages 7 and up as they are exciting little adventures that also teach history and Christian moral principles.  So pick up these three books and learn a little about the American Revolution while reading an exciting story!

Make sure to check out the list of the books in this series here.

The Daugher of Highland Hall by Carrie Turansky

 About the book: 

What if the title, the estate, the life of security and splendor . . . what if it isn't enough?
Strong-willed and beautiful, debutante Katherine Ramsey feels ready to take the London social season by storm, and she must. Her family estate, Highland Hall, has been passed to older male cousin Sir William Ramsey, and her only means of securing her future is to make a strong debut and find a proper husband. With her all-knowing and meddling aunt as a guide, Katherine is certain to attract suitors at the lavish gatherings, sparkling with Great Britain's elite.
When a shocking family scandal sidelines Katherine, forcing her out of the social spotlight, she keeps a low profile, volunteering with the poor in London's East End. Here Katherine feels free from her predictable future, and even more so as a friendship with medical student Jonathan Foster deepens and her faith in God grows. But when Katherine is courted anew by a man of wealth and position, dreams of the life she always thought she wanted surface again. Torn between tradition and the stirrings in her heart for a different path, she must decide whom she can trust and love---and if she will choose a life serving others over one where she is served.

My Review:

I thought this book was a fun, easy read and a great continuation of the Ramsey family's story.  The Daughter of Highland Hall picks up the story with the eldest daughter of the late Randolph Ramsey, Katherine Ramsey.  Katherine is only concerned about one thing--finding a husband who will inherit a large estate and money.  But as the social season gets underway, Katherine begins to question whether riches are the only reason one gets married.  I liked seeing the transformation of Katherine as she encountered situations that were beyond her control.  Many times in our lives we are met with circumstances that force us to see what is really valuable in life and worth living for.   Another great theme in this story is the one of forgiveness.  William and his brother David have been at odds for a long time, and with David's current mess, society would expect William to turn his back.  But William extends forgiveness and love even when it isn't popular.  Carrie Turnasky has put out another great novel to put on your shelf.  So make sure to pick this one up!  And don't forget to enter Carrie Turansky's giveaway by clicking here!

KEEPERS OF THE COVENANT Kindle Giveaway and Live Author Chat with Lynn Austin!

  Lynn Austin's newest book in The Restoration Chronicle series is out!  Keepers of the Covenant is the second book in the series.  Read below to find out about this exciting new book, a giveaway and a live author chat!  You can also read my review of the first book in this series, Return to Me, here

About the book: 

The Old Testament Comes to Thrilling Life in the Latest from Lynn Austin
In one life-changing moment, the lives of the Jewish exiles in Babylon are thrown into confusion and despair when a decree arrives from the king's palace in Susa. It calls for the annihilation of every Jewish man, woman, and child throughout the empire on the thirteenth day of Adar, in less than one year. Ezra, a quiet Jewish scholar and teacher, is suddenly called upon to lead the community as they seek God for a reason for this catastrophe. When a second decree arrives, authorizing them to fight back, Ezra is thrust into the role of military leader as they defend themselves against their enemies.
When the battles come to an end, Ezra's brother Jude is dead and Ezra is required by the Law he so diligently studies to marry Jude's widow, Devorah, and provide an heir. Fatherhood changes Ezra, and he asks God to make a way for him and the other exiles to leave Babylon for good and return to Jerusalem. His prayers are answered and the exiles move to Judea to revitalize worship at the temple---but the fight to keep God's Law is never easy. As more and more of his community are tempted, a new battle emerges . . . this one for the survival of God's covenant and the souls of His chosen faithful.

My Review:
Lynn Austin is definitely one of my favorite author.  I was so excited to get the second book of this series since the first one was phenomenal!  This second book did not disappoint.  I love how her novels push me to want to read the actual biblical account of the story after finishing her books.  This continuation of the story of Israel in Babylon brought out many situations I hadn't thought through before.  When reading through the story of Esther, I always thought about Esther and her plight, but never really considered all that the Israelites would of felt facing the edict of their impending death from the King.  It's brought about a different perspective for me to consider while reading about God's chosen people.  The author has done a wonderful job breathing life into the characters of the story.  Her writing draws you into the story and takes you on a journey that will make a lasting impact on how you'll view the Scriptures dealing with the Jew's exile.  I highly suggest you pick up this series.  It's one that you'll definitely want to add to your library!  If you would like to read other reviews about this book, click here to head over to the blog tour.

Choosing Gratitude: Your Journey to Joy by Nancy Leigh Demoss

Nancy Leigh Demoss has written a compelling book about how to have Joy in our lives.  Gratitude is something we have to choose daily.  Often it is not going to be our first thought when going through a trial or when something comes into our lives that gets us upset, worried, anxious, or depressed.  The first part of this book has 9 chapters that develop the author's thoughts about how to purposely choose gratitude in your life.  The second half of this book includes a 30-Day Devotional Guide that will help you to implement the ideas you've learned in the first half of the book. 
I thought the author presented her thoughts well and helped to move the reader to consider the reader's own attitude toward others, circumstances and her relationship with God.  The book was an easy read and definitely applicable to the reader's life.  It's easy to take everything we've been given for granted.  This book is a great reminder that God has blessed us with so much in life from possessions, to relationships, to life itself.

The Legend of the Candy Cane by Lori Walburg, Illustrated by Richard Cowdrey

Have you ever heard the story behind the famous Christmas candy--the candy cane?  The Legend of the Candy Cane is an inspirational story written by Lorie Walburg that walks through the meaning of our traditional red and white candies we hang on our Christmas trees each year.  This board book story is written for children ages 4-8.

I was excited that this book was a board book since I have a two year old who loves books, but ultimately destroys them as he tries to "read" them.  This book is filled with wonderful illustrations that are colorful and detailed.  The illustrations bring the story to life.  The author did a great job keeping the story on the 4-8 year old level, but I'm thinking that even my two year old will love this book.  I'm planning on wrapping up this book as one of our Christmas books we open as we count down to Christmas day.  So check out this cute little book.  This would be such a great book to give as a gift for Christmas especially with some candy canes!

A Light in the Wilderness by Jane Kirkpatrick

A Light in the Wilderness is another fabulous novel based on a true story by author Jane Kirkpatrick.  I love how Jane takes an unknown story and brings to light the historical value of a story that should not be forgotten.  I really enjoyed her previous novel, A Daughter's Walk, and A Light in the Wilderness was equally as interesting.

From the Back Cover:

Three very different women.  One dangerous journey.  And a future that seems just out of reach.

Letitia holds nothing more dear than the papers that prove she is no longer a slave. They may not cause white folks to treat her like a human being, but at least they show she is free. She trusts in those words she cannot read--as she is beginning to trust in Davey Carson, an Irish immigrant cattleman who wants her to come west with him.

Nancy Hawkins is loathe to leave her settled life for the treacherous journey by wagon train, but she is so deeply in love with her husband that she knows she will follow him anywhere--even when the trek exacts a terrible cost.

Betsy is a Kalapuya Indian, the last remnant of a once proud tribe in the Willamette Valley in Oregon territory. She spends her time trying to impart the wisdom and ways of her people to her grandson. And she will soon have another person to care for.

As season turns to season, suspicion turns to friendship, and fear turns to courage, three spirited women will discover what it means to be truly free in a land that makes promises it cannot fulfill. This multilayered story from bestselling author Jane Kirkpatrick will grip readers' hearts and minds as they travel with Letitia on the dusty and dangerous Oregon trail into the boundless American West.  Based on a true story.

Video Trailer:

My Review:
I really enjoyed reading this story that is based on the true story of Letitia Carson.  It really brings to light all the injustices the African American race has gone through with slavery and the hardship they experienced just trying to live life.   Even though Letitia is free by paper, she really doesn't have true freedom because of the hatred and attitudes of the whites around her.  I also liked the added stories of Nancy Hawkins, a white woman, and Betsy, a Kalapuya Indian.  Each had their own struggles to contend with.  Nancy and Letitia's stories showed the great struggle of moving out west to a better land.  I cannot even imagine traveling for months in a covered wagon on dusty trails to reach the West Coast.  These pioneers had a lot more fortitude then I will ever have.  I'm so used to my comforts, and I can't imagine giving them up to move to a new land.  The closest I have gotten to this would be heading to Russia with my parents for a short time to help them with their work as missionaries.  But it still really doesn't compare to all that these folks had to endure.  The other story is of "Betsy" and the Kalapuya Indians.  The Indians had to give up their ways and move to the reservations when the White man began invading their territory.  So much change that ended up costing the Indians their way of life.
If you're looking for a great book that will teach you a little about those who settled the west, pick up Jane Kirkpatrick's new book, A Light in the Wilderness, and enjoy a great story about 3 women who were not afraid of fighting for their futures.

Check out Jane Kirkpatrick's website to learn more about Letitia's trip out west.

Praying the Attributes of God by Ann Spangler

Ann Spangler has written a book called Praying the Attributes of God: A daily guide to experiencing His greatness.  She is also the author of Praying the Names of God

From the Back of the Book:

God Is Greater than You Think
Many people feel both drawn to God and afraid of him. How can they feel close to a perfect God whom their flawed self is incapable of pleasing?

Fortunately, God has revealed truths about himself in Scripture that can untangle our confusion. In this daily guide to studying and praying according to the attributes of God, Ann Spangler resurrects old-fashioned words like holiness, omnipotence, omniscience, and omnipresence. Far from boring us, these words, when excavated for their biblical meaning, paint a thrilling vision of God that can help us experience spiritual growth in a deeper way. They can also prevent us from making the colossal mistake of concluding God is too weak, distant, or uncaring to help us when we need him.

In the tradition of her bestselling books Praying the Names of God and Women of the Bible, this new daily devotional focuses on one particular attribute each week.

Praying the Attributes of God will help you see that God is far bigger and far better than you could ever hope or suspect.

My Review:
 Ann Spangler covers 17 attributes of God.  Each chapter is devoted to one attribute, and each chapter is divided into 5 days of the week (Monday-Friday).  On Mondays a key scripture is written that reveals the specific attribute to be discussed, and at the end of the section she has a few questions to get you thinking.  Tuesdays-Thursdays are devotionals related to the given attribute, and on Fridays she focuses on promises associated with the given attribute.  This book is more devotional in nature in the fact that it is less deep and more about stories that relate to the attribute that is being discussed.  I did like how on Tuesday-Thursday she gives a keep passage to focus on for the day.  I also like how she included a Scripture list on Fridays for more study.  If you're looking for a light devotional just to get you started in making Bible study a daily commitment, this might be the book for you.

Adventures in Odyssey: The Imagination Station--Battle for Cannibal Island (book 8) by Marianne Hering and Wayne Thomas Batson

Book 8 in the Imagination Station series is just as exciting as the first seven!  Find out what this book is all about by reading the book summary and my review below.

From the Back Cover:
"I claim this boy as my prisoner," the cannibal king said. 
Join Patrick and Beth in the Imagination Station as they travel to Fiji in the 1850s.  Patrick hopes it's for a tropical vacation--instead he finds out that cannibals are alive and well on the islands.  In truth, the cannibals are burning down every Christian village they can find.  When Patrick and a sailor named Nettleton get knocked overboard, the cousins are separated.
Patrick must fend off escaped convicts and a terrible storm--even worse, he finds the cannibal king without even trying!  Meanwhile, Beth follows missionary James Calvert as he searches for Patrick.  But Calvert's greater mission is to find the king of the cannibals and tell him about the Bible.  Is Calvert leading Beth away from danger or straight toward it?

My Review:
This book includes some great history concerning the Fiji Islands and a missionary named James Calvert who was brave enough to go tell the cannibals about Jesus.  This topic would be great to discuss with your kids.  The story shows the importance of not judging others and sharing Christ with them as their only hope of change.  Patrick also learns a valuable lesson about what is really important in life--thinking about others more than yourself!  This book is filled with more great adventure that will help promote great discussion with your children. 
Next up:  Escape to the Hiding Place (book 9)

Adventures in Odyssey: The Imagination Station--Secret of the Prince's Tomb (book 7)

The Secret of the Prince's Tomb was another fun-filled adventure for Patrick and Beth. 

Back of the Book:
“The Egyptians believe that whoever opens a tomb will be cursed!”
The hot sun and sand of ancient Egypt await Patrick and Beth in their next Imagination Station adventure. The cousins are caught between a terrible ruler and a nation bound for slavery. To help their new friend Tabitha, the cousins must seek out a great secret—one that will give hope to her family and future generations. Their search takes them to an ancient burial vault and . . . a mummy! But the vault is a confusing maze, filled with traps and mysterious symbols. Will the cousins ever get out again to share a life-changing hope?

My Review:
When Patrick experiences bullying at school because of his beliefs, John Whittaker uses the Imagination Station to help teach Patrick and Beth a valuable lesson about the hardships they go through.  I think the book provides some good talking points with your children especially if they encounter problems related to their personal faith in Christ being challenged by other kids.  The great thing about this story is that your kids get to learn a lesson while reading a fun and adventurous story.  Who wouldn't want to read about going into a tomb to see a real mummy?  Adventures in Odyssey has provided another fun adventure book for kids to read.  Such a great series to add to your personal library!  I'm looking forward to beginning the next book: Battle for the Mysterious Island.

Jonah and the Great Big Fish by Rhonda Gowler Greene

"God told Jonah to obey.
said, 'Go to Nineveh this day.
Preach to all the people there.
Though they sin, tell them I care.
Tell them they need to repent.'
Yes, Jonah was the one that God sent.
But, stubborn Jonah fled instead.
Didn't do what God had said."
 (taken from the first few pages of the book)

I'm always excited to get children's books in the mail to review.  Jonah and the Great Big Fish is written by Rhonda Gowler Greene and Illustrated by Margaret Spengler.  This book is for children ages 4-8 and published by Zonderkidz.  This story is told in rhyme and has been illustrated with bright, beautiful pictures designed to keep a child's attention.  Even my 2 year old has enjoyed this book, and when he sees the cover starts saying, "JONAH!"  I like that each page has just a few words on it to tell the story.  This is great for small children who have a hard time sitting still long enough for a story.  Another fun aspects is that some of the words actually do what they say.  Such as when the word "sink" is used, the font on the page is actually stepping down, or "wide" has a font that is W-I-D-E.  These aspects are just added fun for the reader.

If you're looking for a book that will appeal to the younger kids and maybe you're older ones could read to them, pick up Jonah and the Great Big Fish!

A Broken Kind of Beautiful by Katie Ganshert

Katie Ganshert has written another beautiful story.  I was excited to read another one of her books since I reviewed her other two a while ago--Wildflowers in Winter and Wishing on Willows.  This novel did not disappoint!  Below you can read a summary from the back cover of the book and my review.  The first chapter of the book is also included along with information on the author.

From the Back Cover:

Sometimes everything you ever learned about yourself is wrong

Fashion is a fickle industry, a frightening fact for twenty-four year old model Ivy Clark. Ten years in and she’s learned a sacred truth—appearance is everything. Nobody cares about her broken past as long as she looks beautiful for the camera. This is the only life Ivy knows—so when it starts to unravel, she’ll do anything to hold on. Even if that means moving to the quaint island town of Greenbrier, South Carolina, to be the new face of her stepmother’s bridal wear line—an irony too rich for words, since Ivy is far from the pure bride in white.

If only her tenuous future didn’t rest in the hands of Davis Knight, her mysterious new photographer. Not only did he walk away from the kind of success Ivy longs for to work maintenance at a local church, he treats her differently than any man ever has. Somehow, Davis sees through the fa├žade she works so hard to maintain. He, along with a cast of other characters, challenges everything Ivy has come to believe about beauty and worth. Is it possible that God sees her—a woman stained and broken by the world—yet wants her still?

My Review:
Let me begin by saying that I really enjoyed reading this novel.  The story had many unpredictable twists and turns in it.  Even though the characters each have their sad story, a bright ray of hope is always just around the corner making you wonder if they'll be able to except what they have lost in their life and embrace their new future.  I loved this section in the book when Marilyn was thinking to herself and remembering some things that were said in the past about her infertility and Sara's accident. 

     "After Sarah's accident, so many well-intentioned people had offered her words of hope--that God would heal her, that she would see again--as if that was a given.  It was the same hope people had offered Marilyn all those years ago.  Story upon story of women who had struggled through infertility and ended up with a child on the other side.
     'God is good. It'll happen,' they had told her.
     As if God's goodness depended upon whether or not He answered prayers the way people wanted Him to answer.  The hard truth was that sometimes He didn't.  He hadn't rescued Marilyn from her infertility, and He hadn't rescued Sarah from her blindness.  But that didn't negate His goodness.  It just meant He had different plans." (pg. 208)

I thought these were some great thoughts.  How many times have you heard people say well meaning things that aren't really well thought out and actually hurt the intended party instead of helping?  When facing tragedy others want to console, but sometimes don't really think before they speak.   I appreciate the honesty the author portrayed of the characters in their struggles.   Katie has written a beautiful story of the glorious hope that is offered in Christ.
