Book Review: Sold

Sold by Patricia McCormick

* Afflilate links Few fictional books have stayed with me, invading my thoughts throughout the day like Sold by Patricia McCormick. Maybe it’s because this fictional story is based on fact. Sold is a book I will not soon forget, nor do I want to. Due to the subject matter of this, s*x trafficking and slavery, I decided to read Sold before my teen daughter. Written for young adults, the book chronicles the journey of Lakshmi,  a naive 13-year-old Himaylan girl who {Read More}

The past, both the good and bad, reveal a beautiful city, filled with courageous everyday citizens who have boldly faced down racism and prejudice. The Swan House by Elizabeth Musser is a look into Atlanta through the eyes of a sixteen-year-old debutant, beginning in 1962 right as the civil rights movement was taking hold. {Read More}

Known by Our Fruit

Green figs on the tree.

A good tree doesn’t produce bad fruit; on the other hand, a bad tree doesn’t produce good fruit.  For each tree is known by its own fruit. Figs aren’t gathered from thornbushes, or grapes picked from a bramble bush. A good man produces good out of the good storeroom of his heart. An evil man produces evil out of the evil storeroom, for his mouth speaks from the overflow of his heart. Why do  you call Me ‘Lord, Lord,’ and {Read More}

Will We Rise Together?

Can you picture it… For the Lord himself will come down from heaven, with a loud command, with the voice of the archangel and with the trumpet call of God, and the dead in Christ will rise first. After that, we who are still alive and are left will be caught up together with them in the clouds to meet the Lord in the air.  And so we will be with the Lord forever.  Encourage each other with these words. {Read More}

Quiche Even My Kids Like

This is a quiche even my kids like because it contains two of their favorite ingredients–cheese and bacon. It’s quick to put together and pop in the oven before the kids are even up. It’s not an everyday breakfast,just a nice treat and change up to our regular menu. 1 frozen pie crust, do not thaw 4 oz shredded cheese of your choice, more if you like 4 slices of cooked and crumbled turkey bacon 3 large eggs 1 1/2 {Read More}

Marriage @ Full Strength in Christ

“If every couple who seriously aim at marriage would go to the foot of the Cross for divine direction it would be given, thus obviating the confusions, the chaos, and the broken promises which seem to characterize so many of today’s short-term marriages. A man who has chosen to marry would do well to contemplate the fact that he marries a sinner. A woman, of course, does the same. There is nobody else to marry!” Elisabeth Elliot, Marriage: A Revolution {Read More}

Book Review: Redeeming Love

* This post contains affiliate links. Stopping off at a bookstore on the way home from a women’s ministry retreat, I found Redeeming Love on the clearance table for just a few dollars. That was seven years ago. Since then, dozens of friends have said, “Oh, you’ve got to read it, it’s wonderful” more times than I can count. It wasn’t until this month that I dusted off Redeeming Love and decided to see if all the accolades over the {Read More}
