Hope Springs is another gem written by author Kim Cash Tate. Hope Springs tells the story of Janelle Evans, Becca Anderson and Stephanie London and how their lives are forever changed when after they are brought together through tragedy.

Hope Springs is book three in a series which includes the books Faithful and Cherished. You should definitely check them out as well.

Lazarus Awakening by Joanna Weaver Book Review




Most people that come to Christ know that God loves them. They even believe what His Word says about Him loving the whole world. But sometimes it’s hard to get that head knowledge to find it’s way into our hearts, and believe in the deepest part of themselves, deep down in their hearts, that God loves them with all of His.

Lazarus Awakening by Joanna Weaver tackles this very subject. In Lazarus Awakening Joanna shows women how to have a truly intimate relationship with the Lord Jesus Christ, and how to stop trying to work for His love.

Using the story of Mary, Martha and their brother Lazarus in a Continue reading

Called To Controversy by Ruth Rosen Book Review




“Called To Controversy” by Ruth Rosen tells the story of Ruth’s Father Moishe Rosen and the founding on the ministry Jews For Jesus. This Autobiography/Biography tells the story of how Moishe, a Jew, came to know the Lord and how God led Him to spread the Good News to the Jewish people and ultimately created the ministry Jews For Jesus.

I was very much looking forward to reading this book. I’ve known about Jews For Jesus for many years. I’ve even read some of the free ebooks on the site that tell the stories of Jews that came to know Jesus and finally accept that He is indeed the Messiah that they have been looking and waiting for.

Many people don’t believe that Jews need to come to Christ. It’s a common belief that because they Continue reading

Cherished by Kim Cash Tate Book Review


Kim Cash Tate has done it again with another great book called “Cherished : A Novel of Unconditional Love.” “Cherished” tells the story of Kelli London, a young woman that dreamed of one day becoming a songwriter. It was her dream to touch the hearts and lives of others through music and honor God with her gift. She also dreamed about being with a man named Brian, her first and only love and high school sweetheart. She was so sure that they would one day marry and have a family. But bad decisions eventually led to tragic and devastating consequences that destroyed her long held dreams of music and love, until God opens her heart to hope and dream again through a series of love letters.

What Do You Treasure? God or Sin?


 

For where your treasure is, there will be your heart also — Matthew 6:21 KJV


Do you treasure the things of this world or the things of God? Answer wisely. Where you will spend eternity rests on it. Why? Because your answer may tell whether you are a way side believer, stony ground believer, thorny ground believer or a good ground believer. Mark  4:1-20 KJV

See people today think that because they made a “decision” for Christ that makes them saved. They believe that they can live however they want no matter how wild and reckless and sinful and it’s okay because they made a “decision” for Christ. That’s a popular teaching today. It’s also very wrong.

There are also those that think they’re saved because they sit in church every Sunday morning, even though they were wildin’ out in the club the night before. Or they think they are saved because they watch a little “Christian” TV from time to time, or have cute little religious figurines, photographs and what not all over the house, car or job or say a few empty prayers, amongst other things. That’s also false. Sorry to break it to you. I know it’s tough.

I don’t watch a lot of “Christian” TV, but one Sunday I decided to check out a popular preacher with the celebrities and such in L.A. And I’ll never forget when he said “ I don’t want to preach to you about sin. I just want to love on you.” I almost fell on the floor. My mouth dropped open and everything. What kind of “Pastor” doesn’t preach about sin? Because if he really loved you he would tell you to come to Christ. To come out of sin and live holy for Jesus. To give your entire life to Christ and accept His gift of eternal life. That’s real love. Unfortunately, the false “gospel” that this “Pastor” preaches is the norm today. And it’s spiritually deadly.

It’s not enough to say that you believe in Jesus. James 2:19 in the King James Bible says “ Thou believest that there is one God; thou doest well: the devils also believe and tremble.” Well we know that devils aren’t saved, so are you sure that you are? What does Continue reading

I Won NaNoWriMo!



Hey everyone. I know that’s it’s been a while since I’ve written. But I’ve got some great news to shout about. I won NaNoWriMo!

What’s NaNoWriMo? NaNoWriMo stands for National Novel Writing Month. It’s the time of year that comes every November when writers everywhere start losing their minds as they try to write a novel by the end of the month.

It’s all very frenetic as everyone tries to hit their 50,000 word count by November 30th. Over sixteen hundred words a day. One Thousand Six Hundred and Sixty-Seven words to be exact. That’s about 4 single spaced pages and 8 double spaced pages.

Well, what do you win? You win Continue reading

Friendship for Grownups by Lisa Whelchel Book Review

Friendships for Grown-Ups: What I Missed and Learned Along the Way by Lisa Whelchel was an excellent read. This was the first time I had ever read anything by Lisa. I had heard that she was a writer. But I did not know much about her ability as a writer or her writing style. The most I knew of Lisa was of her role as Blair on The Facts of Life and that she is a Christian. That’s not saying a lot!

I felt that Friendships for Grown-Ups was refreshing and eye opening. When we look at Celebrities we assume that they have it all together. Lisa reminds us that celebrities are people just like the rest of us. They struggle with fears and insecurities the way that we all do. From these things, like death, no one is exempt.

For Lisa one of the things that she struggled with the most in life Continue reading
