Book Review: Heaven is for Real – Special Movie Edition

After watching a pre-screening of the movie that was based on the book Heaven is for Real by Todd Burpo, it made me want to read the book again. I must have borrowed the book from somebody when I first read it several years ago, so when I saw the opportunity to review the new “Special Movie Edition” release, I signed up right away. If you’re not familiar with the story, it’s the true telling of a small-town pastor whose almost {Read More}

Book Review: The Pleasure of His Company by Dutch Sheets

I’ve read some other books by Dutch Sheets before, so I was looking forward to the opportunity to read his latest book The Pleasure of His Company. With 30 short chapters all about how we can enter into and actually enjoy God’s presence, it’s a book that you don’t necessarily want to read all at once, but is great to use as a daily devotional or even weekly reading, as these short chapters still pack plenty of food for thought {Read More}

My husband and I got the opportunity to attend a pre-screening of the movie Heaven is for Real, based on the bestselling book by the same name.

I had a {Read More}

Book Review: You’re Made for a God-Sized Dream by Holley Gerth

You may recall the review I wrote of Holley Gerth’s book “You’re Already Amazing“, which is a great book for discovering who God created you to be and the strengths and gifts He’s given you. Her next book, “You’re Made for a God-Sized Dream” is a fantastic follow-up that takes things a step further (though it can definitely be read independently) and I am so glad I got the opportunity to review this one for you as well! Here’s what {Read More}
