Aviation Novel!

Product Details

Across the Blue: A Novel is the new novel by Carrie Turansky. I loved reading it! The relationships were ever-changing and intriguing. Learning a little bit about the early development of airplanes was fascinating! Because I'm a writer, I enjoyed reading about a family involved in journalism. And a peek into the political and cultural times of the Wright Brothers was eye-opening. Turansky is a very good writer, and I look forward to reading more from her. A lot of adventure, a little bit of faith, an interesting plot, and well-developed characters make for a winning novel.

Encouraging girls to Read Scripture

Adored: 365 Devotions for Young Women

Inline image 1

Great devotional for girls! The cover and layout are beautiful and inviting. Each of the 365 readings has a scripture along with applicable stories, relatable examples, questions, and inspirations. It covers topics so important to girls - beauty, confidence, shifting perspectives, fear, peer pressure, social media, friendships, dating...  And everything is written from a Biblical, but never intimidating perspective. I'm very impressed with the book!

This is a beautiful gift book for your daughter, granddaughter, Bible study girls, or friends. It's a great tool for encouraging girls to dive deeper into God's word! Shh, don't tell, but guess what my daughter is getting for her next birthday!?

I received this book as a gift from the publisher in exchange for my honest review.

Beautiful Collection of Scriptures for Women

The world seems especially dark these days, so I find myself yearning for God's hope and comfort more than usual. So it was perfect timing when I was invited to review Bible Promises to Live By For Women.   

The pocket-sized book contains 500 promises neatly organized by topics which are in alphabetical order. The topics include Comfort, Endurance, Joy, Justice, Peace, Worship, Spiritual Growth, Conflict, and so many more. Some of the topics are especially fitting for women, including Pefectionism, Planning, Stress, Worry...  I've been a follower of Christ since early elementary school, and I still found scriptures that were new to me.

It has some special touches, including a linen-textured cover, a ribbon marker, beautiful font, pull-out scriptures, and elegant design.

I would recommend this to women of all ages, from 14 and up. It's appropriate for people interested in Christianity, as well as veterans of the faith. It's something you would enjoy buying for yourself, but also perfect to give as a gift.
