Glad to have you visit my little corner of the blog world! I'm a minister's wife and stay-at-home mommy.
Here you will find LOTS of book reviews, because I LOVE to read. You'll also get a little peak into our family life as we seek to raise the three gifts from the Lord with which we have been richly blessed and a little of the things I'm learning as I daily surrender to the Lord in complete trust. This life isn't always easy, but it is an adventure like no other. At the end of each day, I rest in the faithfulness of Almighty God.
Praying you are blessed by your visit with me!

On the road marked with suffering... How will you respond? Come rain or shine, hardship or ease, confusion or clarity, worship is always a choice. But what does it look like when worship meets suffering? How can God be good when it seems the world is collapsing around you? In this inspiring book, Matt and Beth Redman draw on their experiences to explore how to offer praise even in the face of hardship and pain. Focusing on the psalms, they reveal how difficult or tragic circumstances, and the choices you make can propel you toward God or away from him. Learn how to weather the storms of life with a cry of "blessed be you name" on your lips. My Thoughts: Finding God in the Hard Times is the perfect blend of personal story and Biblical exhortation from the Redmans. The book is a solid challenge and encouragement to always have praise to the One True God on our lips. Matt and Beth do not offer the typical Christian cliches, but offer readers Scriptural context and practical life examples for finding joy in the most difficult circumstances. With just five short chapters and a discussion guide included in the book, Finding God in the Hard Times is the perfect resource for use with small groups in your church or personal study.
