I Confess . . . Sometimes I Judge

I don’t mean to. Really, I don’t . . . but I know I do. Twice in the last few days I felt the disgust that comes with judgement rise up in my soul. It was because of posts on Facebook. Sometimes I wonder if I should delete my...

What to do with the Pain

Polymyalgia Rheumatica . . . As of today I hit the one year mark. Not that I knew what it was a year ago, but that’s when the pain started. During January, I thought I had it managed. I even imagined perhaps it had gone into a sort of...

Book Review – The Alamo Bride

Kathleen Y’Barbo has done it again! This is the seventh book in this series (not all of them by Miss Y’Barbo), and they just keep getting better. I really don’t enjoy romances, but these historical fiction reads with just a splattering of romance keep my attention from beginning to...

Life . . . It’s What Happens

I’m not sure why we expect our day to day to be perfect. Why do we get disappointed, surprised and even angry when life happens? I’ve not found any promises for a perfect and/or easy life. Here’s what I have found: I’ve found that Adam and Eve couldn’t follow...

Why Bible Study and Sunday School?

About 1/2 the folks in our church come to Sunday School and/or Bible Study. I get it that mid-week is difficult for working moms and folks who work way more overtime than they’d like. But I’m not sure why everyone doesn’t come an hour early on Sunday Morning. I’ve...

Book Review – Shelter of the Most High

When I got this book to review, I discovered it was book #2 in the series. So I immediately got Book #1 from the library. After reading it, I was even more excited to read and review “Shelter of the Most High.” And I wasn’t disappointed. As with book...

Book Review – The Liberty Bride

# 6 in the Mayflower Brides series – I received this as a free download at #NetGalley in exchange for a fair review. I truly enjoyed this book. I enjoyed the history of the War of 1812. I’m probably less familiar with this period of history than any other....

My Church

Is that a phrase you use? “My Church” If it is, I have to wonder, what do you do to demonstrate ownership of said church? Don’t get me wrong, if you use that phrase, I praise God you are in a church, and hope it’s one where you’re developing a...

Stoic or Christian

Did you know there’s a difference? I recently read a book by Jerry Jenkins and Tim LaHaye about the Doctor and Historian Luke. It was a work of fiction and assumed that Luke was a Stoic before Christ found him.  Most people don’t even know what a Stoic is;...

Book Review – Many Sparrows

by Lori Benton Imagine my surprise when the setting of this book opened in my back yard! I live about 10 minutes from Yellow Creek (which dumps into the Ohio River just North of Steubenville), so I was immediately intrigued, and the story line kept my attention! Lori Benton...
