Book of the Week: The Pact, A Love Story

You may have noticed that it has been some time since I’ve read a book.  I’ve been in a book withdrawal crisis for a while.  Life has just thrown a lot of time consuming things my way recently and I haven’t made time to read.  I had to remedy this problem ASAP because I feel […]

Book of the Week: The Shape of Water

Always read the book first.  Yes, that’s one of my mottoes.  Strangely enough, Oscar’s Best Movie of 2017 was a MOVIE and then a BOOK.  What is up with that?   I dug a little and found out why.  Read the explanation here.   I’ve had the book on pre-order for a while and it […]

Book of the Week: A Wrinkle in Time

Book of the Week: Jesus Calling by Sarah Young

Well, it’s the App of the Day so I decided to make it the book of the week too! After many years of writing in her prayer journal, missionary Sarah Young decided to listen to God with pen in hand, writing down whatever she believed He was saying to her. It was awkward at first, […]
