Love Letters from God is a delightful book written by Glenys Nellist for children ages 4-8.  With the turn of each beautifully illustrated page your child will learn a familiar bible story and God’s special word.  Love Letters from God takes you from the very beginning with Adam and Eve to the Resurrection.   Be reminded of God’s promises.  My children enjoyed guessing the Bible story by finding clues in the images drawn by Sophie Allsopp.  This book also includes a flap feature with a letter written from God at the end of each Bible story.   Love Letters from God is a beautiful book to read any time and teaches your child of God’s love and how they are never alone.  Call out to the Lord and he will hear you no matter where you are.

Jonah and the Great Big Fish a children’s book

Jonah and the Great Whale is one of many stories we remember reading as a child in Sunday School.  It is one of my favorite stories in the Bible.  Rhonda Gowler Greene captures the story of Jonah in this beautiful picture book for children ages 4-8.  Greene uses a rhythmic tone of rhyming words and retells the story of Jonah in a way your child will understand.  Both my 5 and 10 year old children enjoyed listening to the story at bed time and at the end they both chanted “again!”  This has become a family favorite.

How Should Christians Vote a book review

Who is ready for a change in the white-house? Honestly, it is time for Christians to take a stand and fight back against the socialist that has infected our country. We need to put God back in the white house and restore the damage that Obama has caused with his carelessness and disrespect of what America is really about. He has left our country in shambles and vulnerable to more terrorist attacks and alien invasions along our borders. We were once a strong country, stood out among the rest and we can be that proud country once again. It is very simple…Christians need to stop hiding and get out and do something about it. Obama has no respect for God, Our Soldiers, Our Constitution, or America.
Follow this link to read an unedited interview that was conducted by Cathleen Falsani, the religion reporter for the respected Chicago Sun-Times newspaper and you just might be surprised with what Obama has to say about his stand on religion…or maybe not.

While preparing for the next election we as Christians need to remember that we are not to vote as Republicans or Democrats. We need to vote as Godly men and women and cast our vote based on God’s values. It’s not just WWJD…it is HWJV? (How Would Jesus Vote) So on my venture to learn how God want’s me to vote in the next election I picked up a copy of “How Should Christians Vote,” By Tony Evans, courtesy of Moody Publishing. For those of you that do not know who Tony Evans is…he is a pastor at Cliff Bible Fellowship in Dallas. He is the author of many books, speaks at churches and other events all over the country, and is heard on 500 radio stations each day.

vote

In “How Should Christians Vote,” Tony Evans teaches on how Christians can apply biblical principles when considering who to vote for. Evans emphasizes that God is neither Republican or Democrat and that neither party is good or bad. Each party holds policies that value God’s word and each party has some policies that do not. We need to listen to what the candidates have to say, where they stand, and most importantly who they represent. We can not vote on color or political party. And do not vote to make history! Cast your vote to bring glory to God. Tony Evans pulls much scripture that we can use to guide us with our political choice. We learn how the government was formed and what our founding fathers had in mind for all Americans. Most importantly we are reminded that government was created by God, not man. When our leaders display Godly values they are good and our country is good. When our leaders display values that are not honoring to God they are evil and our country suffers.
Obama is a prime example of a president that is dishonoring to God and the outcome is…well just take a look around ya….

Take a stand for your Christian Values and remember to vote God’s way…It is the only way to save this great nation we call home.
On voting day ask yourself, HWJV?

Bible Stories for His Beautiful Princess

I just finished this book with my lil princess and my sweet prince.  Bible Stories for his Beautiful Princess by bestselling author Sheri Rose Shepherd is so sweet and perfect for lil girls.  The illustrations are adorable and charismatic and appeal to every lil girl.  The book is covered in pink and purple and cute lil hearts and crowns.  The stories inside are the timeless bible stories that we learned in Sunday School.  The stories haven’t changed, but the wording has been tweaked so that children can understand.  The stories are followed with a small prayer and a special message called Princess Jewel.  We had so much fun reading through this book.  My son and daughter recognized many of the stories and bible verses that are shared.  My daughter thought it was neat that the stories chosen for this book included many great women of the Bible.  The message that is conveyed by reading this special storybook is the Lord loves His children and that lil girls are precious in his sight.

What a beautiful storybook to share with your lil princess that will be treasured for a lifetime.

Praying for Boys

Are you a single mom, working mom, stay at home mom, a married mom, a soon to be mom, or in the early stages of planning a future family? Do you have sweet lil boy’s that will grow up to be manly men one day? If so, I have a book for you! Brooke McGlothlin has just released a new book, “Praying for Boys.” The book is a wonderful resource for moms everywhere that strive to raise their lil boys to be Godly men. Remember we can not do it alone. Any mother knows it takes lots of prayer and guidance from the Great I Am. In this book, McGlothlin walks momma’s through the steps on how to pray for their son. I like how she describes praying in the very beginning of her book. There really are so many different ways that one can talk with God. My favorite is conversational prayer. That’s right you can share in conversation with the Lord. I do it everyday! The author describes what prayer is and explains why momma’s need to pray for their lil men. She then shares words straight from scripture and shares prayers that you can pray that will enrich his life and his walk with Jesus. This book was a real inspiration for me. There is so much more to pray for at night. It doesn’t just stop at praying for sweet dreams or to keep safe and warm through the night. We need to pray for things they need most like: obedience, overcoming fears, wisdom and purity.

Bethany House sent me a copy of this enriching book in exchange for my honest opinion. In my reflection I have found this book to not be just another great read, but one that has given me wisdom on how to pray for my son and the life that he will led as a man. It is now that his foundation is placed and it is now that I give my children completely to the Lord. For they are his and he is mine. God Bless ya’ll!
