Review of “Always We Begin Again” by Leeana Tankersley

Are you looking for a devotional that is interactive in nature? Then “Always We Begin Again: Stepping into the Next, New Moment” by Leeana Tankersley is the book for you. This devotional has 100 devotions that range in topic. After each of the 100 devotions, the author has questions for you to think about and answer. The best part is that she has included some space right below the question where you can write down your answer. Also, I like that she has a contents section in the front of the book that lists the title of each of the devotionals so you can mark your favorites there and then easily know what page they are on when you want to go back and read them again.

Review of “Confident Moms, Confident Daughters” by Maria Furlough

When I saw “Confident Moms, Confident Daughters” by Maria Furlough advertised on Facebook and in my email from Revell about books coming out soon that I had the option to review, I was extremely excited. It didn’t take me a long once I started reading to find something that I can really relate to. I have always struggled with confidence in myself. The author mentions in the first chapter how insecure she was growing up and I have to say it was refreshing to read because I totally related to what she said. I also never gave it much thought during certain times but looking back can totally agree when she says that in order to try to help out confidence we will do things that aren’t always good for us. These are two of the reasons I really wanted to read this book. The other is because I have an infant daughter who I would like to help be confident in herself when she gets older but before I can help her to become confident in who God made her to be I need to do so myself. I am so glad Maria wrote this book.

Review of “Finding Lady Enderly” by Joanna Davidson Politano

If you like suspenseful romance novels without all the explicit sex and bad language then Joanna Davidson Politano’s “Finding Lady Enderly” is just the book you’re looking to read. This books was hard to put down with the edge of your seat situations that occur throughout the book. My favorite thing in this book are the notes that the main character and her love interest exchange using books. They using the initials of the author, a colon, the initials of the book, and then the page number to tell the other where to look for an underlined passage. The underlined passage is the message for the other person. I really like on page 92 where the author says “My dear lady, carrying yourself with poise doesn’t mean you believe yourself to be perfect. It simply means you aren’t bothered by the parts that aren’t.” I also really like on page 163 where the main character’s love interest tells her “The weakest version of the real you is stronger than the best imitation of someone else.” One thing I think that people will be surprised about in regards to this book are the life lessons that you can take from it. I highly recommend this book and I intend on going back to read other authors other books.

Review of “A Redesigned Life” by Tracy Steel

Have you ever stopped to think what God has “designed” for your life? Do you truly believe God has a “design” for YOUR life? Scripture tells us in Jeremiah 29:11 that God has a plan for our lives. In Tracy Steel’s book “A Redesigned Life,” she uses a unique approach to reassure the reader that God does indeed have a “design” for your life and mine. She provides relevant personal examples, as well as experiences shared with her by others. Most importantly, she references Scripture to make her approach to life’s design more credible. Her book is very thought provoking and reassuring. God does have a “design” for all of us if we will yield to His will. I found Tracy Steel’s book very encouraging and helpful in my Christian walk.

Review of “Deadly Intentions” by Lisa Harris

Deadly Intentions by Lisa Harris is a must read for anyone who enjoys a good mystery packed full of suspense. Harris does an excellent job in developing a most complex plot designed so as to hold the reader’s attention. From the very beginning, the reader is drawn into the lives of the characters, experiencing a roller coaster of emotions. You find yourself trying to connect the pieces and trying to make sense of what appears to be unconnected events. Just when you think you have things figured out, you are thrown a curve. This is definitely an excellent read!
