Review: 31 Proverbs To Light Your Path

31 Proverbs to Light Your Path Kindle Edition

Take Heart, Beloved.
His Light Is Shining, 
And Your Path Is Clear.

Wherever you are on your journey, here is the wisdom you need for the road ahead. Maybe you’re stuck and want to move forward. Or you feel anxious and long to know what’s next. Or you’re ready for an uplifting reminder that God holds your future in His loving hands.
 
Chosen by hundreds of women as their favorite verses in Proverbs, these thirty-one nuggets of truth reveal how faithfully God honors His promise, “I will instruct you in the way of wisdom and lead you along straight paths” (Proverbs 4:11).
 
Best-selling author Liz Curtis Higgs examines each word with care and adds a sprinkling of humor through her honest stories and personal examples. For each verse you’ll find a unique “One Minute, One Step” challenge—a do-it-now task that requires one minute or less. You’ll soon discover how practical and meaningful the book of Proverbs is as you apply its ancient wisdom to your thoroughly modern life.
 
With a study guide included, 31 Proverbs to Light Your Path is a daily devotional and a small-group Bible study, wrapped in a beautiful gift book brimming with encouragement!

My Review:
Where to begin ,This beautiful book has 203 pages but only 176 pages are that of 31 Proverbs . But after those Study Guide goes to page 194. Heart felt thanks , Notes, Additional Bible Versions, and to finish it off About the Author. Proverbs 31 is full of Wisdom and will empower you to live in the light of the wisdom of God. This book has inspired me to read the book 31 Proverbs from start to finish and soak it in like it was my first time reading it.  Each chapter  is filled with  rich scripture, personal stories from Liz, Devotions and my favorite part is the ONE MINUTE ,ONE STEP. What is a one minute one step I bet your asking, I will post a picture of one , but what it is for example one is "Become a secret keeper" and here it will tell you some amazing advice.Poems are amazing in my opinion so the poems in this book melt my heart. " Bless you, Lord, for sparing my life. Please forgive my foolish pride, my stubborn attitude, and my unwillingness to admit I need help. I am grateful for your kindness and even more thankful for your boundless patience. " Another favorite of mine is another One Minute One Step .... " Put aside your pride and ask for what you need". To many times pride takes  our everyday lives  and makes it a mess, so I will end here with you all need to read this amazing book. I am ever so thankful to have gotten this book to review.

My Review:
Color Code Bible I have to admit this is my all time favorite bible to have ever reviewed alone owned! Both my daughters 9 and 12 want a Color Coded Bible now after I showed them this bible. What makes this bible different you are probably asking, well let me SHOW you instead of telling you. Before I show you all sorts of pictures let me help you understand  how to best use the color code system when your at church. At the bottom of the pages  there are words like GOD ANIMAL and so on in different colors , you will also notice verses highlighted in those colors. Red for Jesus , brown for Animal, and so on. IF you want to know more about the highlighted word you can find them explained in great detail in the front part of this bible. Want to do a read the bible in a year kind of thing, look no further ... the front of the bible gives you scriptures to read 365 days, 90 days, and so on. Hold the phone!!! there is more... Want to read it in order, chronological order you can just look at the beginning area of this bible. Want to learn about Moses or about the prophets you can read in the beginning area of the bible. This is not your typical bible , this is the ONE bible you NEED in your life. Please check out the pictures below and also if you like this bible and want it in your life here are my top two places to look :    http://www.thomasnelson.com/bibles

REVIEW: Church of the Small Things

Church of the Small Things

The Million Little Pieces That Make Up a Life

By Melanie Shankle
Published by Zondervan

Melanie Shankle, New York Times bestselling author and writer at The Big Mama Blog tackles these questions head on in her fourth book, Church of the Small Things. Easygoing and relatable, she speaks directly to the heart of women of all ages who are longing to find significance and meaning in the normal, sometimes mundane world of driving carpool to soccer practice, attending class on their college campus, cooking meals for their family, or taking care of a sick loved one.
The million little pieces that make a life aren’t necessarily glamorous or far-reaching. But God uses some of the smallest, most ordinary acts of faithfulness—and sometimes they look a whole lot like packing lunch.
Through humorous stories told in her signature style, full of Frito pie, best friends, the love of her Me-Ma and Pa-Pa, the unexpected grace that comes when we quit trying to measure up, and a little of the best TV has to offer, Melanie helps women embrace what it means to live a simple, yet incredibly meaningful life and how to find all the beauty and laughter that lies right beneath the surface of every moment.
My Review:
I will admit this was my first reading a Melanie Shankle book, and I really have to say I love her humor, how she does not sugar coat things, and how genuine  she is and honest makes this book amazing! Melanie's stories are what i needed right now, I have been struggling to find my place these days and this gem has helped me narrow down some things for me. I have been doing little things my whole adult life and felt like my life did not matter much. But I now find myself starting to ask myself  "What is God's will for my life".? I have recently made some changes in my life that I feel was good choice because I felt my life sliding down a rabbit hole. I honestly needed this book to help me figure out my place and to keel up the work of small things, God has a purpose for me. This gem has 222 pages and I can honestly say it will take you no time at all to read this book, it is so good you will not want to put it down. 
Thank you for allowing me to review this material free, in exchange I offer my honest Opinions of the material.

Review: 30 Days to Peace: A One-Month Creative Journal

30 Days to Peace: A One-Month Creative Journal


A Creative Journey to Peace

In our loud and busy lives, it’s easy to miss the life-giving breeze of peace. That’s what this interactive journal is for. It’s about slowing down and taking time to pursue and embrace peace. It’s about welcoming the call to be a peacemaker. It’s about finding a peace rooted in faith rather than circumstances and living out that miracle every day. This is an invitation to create, write, doodle, and draw your way into the deep, lasting peace of God.

My Review:
This 112 page Journal was such a delight to review, I love to journal when I remember to or not to busy so when I saw this up for grabs I had to give it a go! I think I like the fact that I can color and decorate the pages if I feel like it, and there are 2 pages for you to write the answer out to the day's question/ challenge. Here are a few examples of what each day looks like so you can see what I mean by plenty of room to let my creative juices flow. 

Thank you for allowing me to review this material.
