I love reading, Christian, Biographies, Autobiographies, Cookbooks, Fiction, Historical Fiction, History, Memoir, Mystery, Romance, Suspense, Thriller, Parenting, Marriage, Christian Counseling, Health, Natural and Herbal, Childcare and Teaching, Inspirational as well as Alaskan.

I prefer a printed copy that I can hold in my hands and become old friends with, but will also accept E-books in Kindle, PDF or Nook formats.

I am a Christian and seek to glorify my Lord. As such I will not read any erotic, paranormal, vampire, or such books. I also will stop reading any book that has bad language (Cursing and taking my Lord’s name in vain.), and books with gratuitous sex. This is one reason I have chosen to be associated with the Publishing Companies and the Authors that are on my site because I feel safe recommending them to others.

Miracle at Coffeeville by Darrell Case

When Darrell asked if I would read and review this, his newest book. I told him I would even though "Christmas Books" are usually not my cup of tea. "After all, as a Christian, when you have heard/read THE CHRISTMAS STORY... What's really left?

Yikes! My mouth! Of course, after he graciously mailed me his book anyway! And I sat down and...DEVOURED IT!

I immediately emailed him with a much humbled and humiliated attitude, a blessed heart, a rejoicing spirit, and a new excitement and anticipation I haven't had for Christmas in quite a while!

Thank you Bro. Darrell Case for obeying and following God's leading on when to write what next!

My Favorite Bridge

It doesn't even have a name, just a #. It's barely the length of two or two & 1/2 cars, it's one of many identical short concrete bridges on the main road headed out of Dyersburg, TN to the outskirts, Roellen.
I was 14, TERRIFIED of water, bridges, drowning...As an assistant Pastor's oldest girl I KNEW I WAS LOST AND ON MY WAY TO HELL!
I had made professions before, but my heart never changed. "I KNEW WITH MY HEAD BUT COULDN'T TRUST IN MY HEART."
It finally reached a point I couldn't sleep from fear, everyone who tried to deal with me, I could take THEM through the Roman's Rd.
I don't have the exact date but it was a HOT, night in June,1983, & it was FOGGY (it added to my panic).

But Got moved the head knowledge to my heart that drive. As always, I was right behind Dad, hugging his headrest trying to see out.

Six Bridges to cross on the way home from Revival. 
(I'm very near sighted even w/ glasses.)
“Thump, Bump“ On Bridge One, and my heart is pounding in my ears! "Thump, Bump" BREATHE!

Me: "How can you see where you are going Dad? Aren't you scared!?"
Dad: "Several things, the headlights on the white and yellow lines help guide me. The Road Signs tell me what the next bit of the road is like. I have driven this road many, many times so I already KNOW what to expect so I can drive safer."
"Thump,da,Bump" BRIDGE TWO! My stomach flip flops.. Waaait for it...Thumpa, da Bump"! SAFE!!

But my brain is spinning. 
Thoughts:
I'm scared of Bridges and Fog. TRUE
I can't see well, Period. TRUE
 I CAN'T get myself home. TRUE
 I'm trusting {FAITH} my Dad....
"Thump, thump" ( Bridge three)
...to get me home safe! TRUE

He's HUMAN and I trust him with my life.
He was MADE by GOD, I was made by GOD; SO HE HAS TO LOVE ME 100%!  

And my Heart Opened Like a Flower In The Son!
"Thump, Bump"

I went ON THAT BRIDGE A LOST SINNER HEADED FOR HELL. A few seconds, later CAME OFF THAT BRIDGE, SAVED BY GOD's. 
GLORIOUS  GRACE!

A Date With Death

A Date With Death (In The President's Service)A Date With Death by Ace Collins
My rating: 5 of 5 stars

This first book in the series (In the President's Service) is a great read! I am so thankful that I was asked by The Book Club Magazine to read and review the first book in the series!!
This is the perfect genre for me! I love the time period it is set in! I love the theme of the book, the style of writing! It is a 100% WIN for me!
It has all the key components for THE GREAT NOVEL. Time Period, Classy Characters, FBI, Mystery & Intrigue, Spies & Foreign Agents, Christians & Lost searching for Answers....
I am so glad this is a series and I will be able to read more from these characters because I came to love them, just in the first book! It sucked me in and I read till 3:am to finish it!
Thank you for this opportunity!
Waiting for #2!

Calling it as I see it!

7: 107: 10 by Dominique Wilkins
My rating: 1 of 5 stars

PORNOGRAPHY!!!

AND YET ANOTHER BOOK THAT ADDS THE TAG "CHRISTIAN" TO A BOOK OF FILTH BECAUSE THEY WANT A WAY TO GET TO THE WEAK AND BABY CHRISTIANS WHO DON'T KNOW MUCH YET.
OR A WAY FOR A CHRISTIAN TO INDULGE IN THE VERY GARBAGE {THAT IF HER HUSBAND, FATHER, SON, PASTOR,ETC...WERE TO ADMIT TO "LOOKING" AT THE EXACT SCENE SHE HAD JUST "READ" IN DETAIL ABOUT} SHE WOULD LOOSE HER MIND!!
Ladies, Satan knows what he's doing. Men are VISUAL...Pictures, Movies, etc., We are VERBAL..."He won't talk to me!!" For us, reading the words are the same as the men looking.

DON'T HAVE A DOUBLE STANDARD!!! I have my own personal conviction on what line (no pun intended) I won't go past in my reading.

Broken Build

Broken Build (Chance for Love, #1)Broken Build by Rachelle Ayala
My rating: 1 of 5 stars

A first (and Last) for me! I've been reading as far back as I can remember. And I like a wide variety of genre's. Everything from Christian & Missionary, War, Spy & Espienage, Biography and Autobiographies. Poetry & Songs, Cookbooks & Crafts, Nature, Survivalist, Hiking, Alaska, Health, Exercise, Family, Childcare, Family Fun, Marriage, Counseling, Kids Books....You name it, I pretty much love it with a few STRONG exceptions.
I shudder at vampire,horror,& witchcraft type books, Anything with spells, the same with undead, demonology or zombies. I just can't get through them. I know it is real and I choose not to open myself up to it by reading novels about it.
I also RARELY read Si-fy just because they don't appeal to me.
I also choose to stay away from "Women's Porn" or Erotic Novels. To me that is no different than men looking at the pictures & magazines. These of course, are my own guidelines for myself.

Which brings me to THIS book which I feel was wrongly listed. It was a free book listed as a Christian Romance!
I would list it AT BEST as a "PRETENDER"!!


Cussing WHILE praying!?!? Pornographic descriptions of thoughts and actions...my advice,**DON'T READ**

My first 28 Books...

1. A Nazi On Trial in God's Court  2*
Idea is good but premiss is WAY off! The Bible does not teach "Anything Goes" kind of love, nor is there reincarnation! This book had a chance to hit a nail on the head but in my humble opinion... It was a complete miss.

2. Blood & Justice 3* Author- Rayven...

3. Billie: a story of... 4*
"Faith, waiting, trials, miracles from God!!"

4. Skin Peeling Guide.... 3*

5. Distant Relatives  1* 
The first part was very good writing, then the author seemed to jump off the sanity board into the deep end of the WAY-OUT pool!

6. Blueblood - 4* 
NOTICE: cussing and violence (finding a cop killer).

7. Running #2
3* 
Not as good as #1 but still worth the read.

8. Scavenger ('s) Hunt *4  
A well written, good plot, with some great twists. 

9. Woman of Stones 5* 
A parable of parables to make us stop and think... What if... 

10. AMAZING SCIENTIFIC RESEARCH 4*

Like a Christian version of a good Victoria Holt mystery!!

16. Vanished! (Wilton/Straight? Mystery) 3*

17.  Aromatherapy blends and recipes 4*

18. The Atria Holiday Cooking Collection 3* 
We are trying two of these recipes this year!

19. Love in Disguise 3* 
A lovely book, must admit, end note on author wearing many hats with all her "jobs" and not loosing HERSELF. Was the part I needed most!

20. Promise to Return *4
Amish couple struggle with the draft and his call to war vs. their religion vs. faith, family, & love.

21. WINGS OF GLASS 5*
Amazing how REAL AND EXACT some of the thoughts and emotions are, even if the story isn't exactly the same! The Author NAILED it! If you want to "understand" "WHAT IS/ WAS SHE THINKING?!?!".. read this book. My copy is full of yellow highlights and I'm going to have my own "Manny" who is almost 19 read it to further explain some things to him better than I ever have.
THANK YOU!!

22. The Blood Cried Out *5 
God's miracle of Salvation and healing after a Gang related stabbing victim is given up on as "Hopeless" by Drs.

Cozy Christian Mystery
During a murder investigation in which she is the suspect, the main character finally deals with a four year old attack that stole her Faith, peace, and Trust in God.

25. Priced to Move 4* 
Gemstones galore, home shopping TV, stollen RUBIES, Murder, Faith in God... What's not to like?

26. Claire's Not so Gothic Romance 3*
Learn the difference between Gothic and Goth, Going to Church to find a Mate and Serving God, Romance vs. Ridiculous! Add in nosy, quirky neighbors and a pushy, hippy, Mom and how is a girl to find the RIGHT MAN!?!?

27. Texas Whirlwind 4* 
A simple but sweet love story. Adoption, old love rekindled, court case, and revenge.

28. Running #3
3* 
Not as good as #1 but still worth the read.
