ABOUT AUTHOR: 

Dr. Charles Stanley is the senior pastor of the First Baptist Church of Atlanta, where he has served for more than 40 years. He is a New York Times bestselling author who has written more than 60 books, including the bestselling devotional Every Day in His Presence. Dr. Stanley is the founder of In Touch Ministries. The In Touch with Dr. Charles Stanley program is transmitted throughout the world on more than 1,200 radio outlets and 130 television stations/networks, and in language projects in more than 50 languages. The award-winning In Touch devotional magazine is printed in four languages with more than 12 million copies each year. Dr. Stanley’s goal is best represented by Acts 20:24: “Life is worth nothing unless I use it for doing the work assigned me by the Lord Jesus—the work of telling others the Good News about God's mighty kindness and love.” This is because, as he says, “It is the Word of God and the work of God that changes people’s lives.”


MY REVIEW:
This book is such an amazing little gem filled with beautiful pictures and devotionals to go with them all. Dr. Charles Stanley made this awesome exposition of heaven thru the account taken from the Bible. While reading this book, it captivated me and the feeling was like I was there in the photo's and the devotions. I would recommend this  little gem to anyone who is in need of a lift me up.

REVIEW : He Calls You Beautiful Hearing the Voice of Jesus in the Song of Songs by Dee Brestin

He Calls You Beautiful

Hearing the Voice of Jesus in the Song of Songs

by Dee Brestin


I am my beloved’s and my beloved is mine.…
—from the Song of Songs

Did you know that God loves you with a passion—and He wrote a love song to help you experience that love in a personal way? Tucked away in the pages of Scripture is one of the most fascinating and most misunderstood books of the Bible: the Song of Songs. Although the Song of Songs details a passionate, earthly love story, it is intended to illuminate the best love story, the intense love God has for us, His beloved. In He Calls You Beautiful, Bible teacher Dee Brestin explores this love song from God to reveal transformative truths for each of us, whether married, single, or widowed. With rich contemporary illustrations and insight from biblical scholars, Dee shows how God uses poetry and exquisite images to illuminate the intimacy that Jesus longs to have with you.God calls you to know His love not only in your head but also in your heart. He sings over you a song of love, a song of salvation, a song of hope. A Song of songs.
 Includes an in-depth Bible study for use individually or in a group setting.

My Review:
This book  is such a beautiful book. Brestin does an excellent job of breaking down the meaning of the referenced songs and analyzing songs which are found throughout the Bible. Brestin includes a Bible study at the end of each chapter so that you or a small group of friends may discuss what you have read and shared and honestly this has been the best book I have read on the song of songs.
It was quite overwhelming  However, I enjoyed reading and doing the study as I went along. I want to check out a few more of Dee Brestin's books like:

 "The Friendships of Women","A Woman's Journey Through Psalms",

"A Woman of Love"," We are Sisters"," The Joy of Woman's Friendship",and " A Woman of Healthy Relationships,Sisters, Mothers, Daughters, and Friends" are just some of her books I want to get my hands on. I truly love How well written "Song of Songs" was. This book has 242 pages and was a pretty easy read honestly . I hope you all look into getting this book, you will not be disappointed.

Review:

The Red Letter words of Jesus was a fantastic read with 217 pages of delight. Each area is a total of two pages, one that is graphics as you can see, the other page is the scripture but written in a way that you can truly understand. My daughters enjoyed me reading this to them every night , they also had question about some of the scriptures and honestly we learned together about god's words. This is one book I am happy that I had the chance to review because it is written in a way that my two daughters and I could understand.

Fast drying ink!
  • Dries up to 3x faster* for less smearing* 
  • Super smooth writing retractable gel pen
  • Comfortable full grip barrel
  • 0.7 mm medium point
As you can see I LOVE these pens! I only got the three to try out, but three was enough for me to make my up I love these pens. My daughters and I love to color , so we have all sorts of pens, pencils and so on to color with but the pens I have smear, or bleed real bad. Bic Pens are so nice, they are not sticky like some gel pens nor are they bleeders . As you can see the picture that came with my review kit from Smiley I colored using the three pens I received did not bleed, smear, and I can tell you the ink dried in a very reasonable time, and the ink felt like a normal pen was used instead of that tacky sticky feel some gel pens have.
