The Kissing Bridge

The Kissing Bridge

On 4/6 CristiM wrote: This is the third installment in the Seven Brides for Seven Bachelors series written by Tricia Goyer. All of the books stand alone well, but it is fun to see random characters from the first book show up from the previous books, so I hope that continues on in the series. I really like Amish fiction, ... The Kissing Bridge by Tricia Goyer (Book Review)

Happy Wives Club

Happy Wives Club

On 2/17 CristiM wrote: When I read the description of this book, I was intrigued. It does seem that we are surrounded by a negative conception of being married. My husband and I are 8+ years in and there have definitely been ups and downs, definitely times where things were strained, but overall we have always had a strong ...

The Promise Box

The Promise Box

On 11/11 CristiM wrote: I have been waiting for this book to come out since I finished up The Memory Jar, which was the first book in the Seven Brides for Seven Bachelor's series. The Memory Jar is one of my favorite Amish fiction novels of all time and I haven't met a Tricia Goyer novel that I haven't liked yet. I was excited ...

She's Twelve Going on Twenty

She's Twelve Going on Twenty

On 8/24 CristiM wrote: I'll admit, at 5 years old my daughter is nowhere near in the age range this book is aimed at, but as a often befuddled parent, I think that it is never too early to research, learn or seek out advice about parenting. My parents were from the old school state of mind that we just don't bring up private ... She's Twelve Going on Twenty by Kim Camp (Book Review)

We Laugh, We Cry, We Cook

We Laugh, We Cry, We Cook

On 8/6 CristiM wrote: I was initially drawn to this book because I heard that it was a mix of a wide range of foods, including (but not limited to) vegan and vegetarian fare. As someone who tends to lean veg in a family full of carnivores, I can always use a good mix of recipes to try. As I started to read the story, I could ...

Nearing Home (Paperback)

Nearing Home (Paperback)

On 7/10 CristiM wrote: This book is aimed at elderly people, but I think younger people (like me) can get a lot out of it too. Mr. Graham has inspired and even brought many people to faith throughout the years. I have been blessed enough to see him speak before he retired and there is just something about him that captivates ... Nearing Home By Billy Graham- Book Review

Broken Wings

Broken Wings

On 5/2 CristiM wrote: Broken Wings picks up where Angel Eyes had left off. Main characters Brielle and Jake have graduated from high school and survived some pretty intense stuff (I don't want to be too detailed and spoil the first book for anyone who has yet to read it) In the second novel, Brielle's dad has begun seeing ...

Come to the Table

Come to the Table

On 4/8 CristiM wrote: What initially drew me to this novel was that the main character, Kat Davies, wanted to begin a food pantry. I thought that sounded like something that would interest me and it is also a plot different from any other I have come across. I realized after I began the book that this is the second book ...

Twelve Unlikely Heroes

Twelve Unlikely Heroes

On 12/2 CristiM wrote: Our society has a tendency to proclaim famous actors or athletes as heroes, but the Bible is full of every day REAL heroes. 12 Unlikely Heroes highlights many of them. One might go into this book thinking it is a rehashing of the exact story of these heroes from the Bible, but there was new information ... Another Insightful Novel From MacArthur

Sneak

Sneak

On 9/18 CristiM wrote: Even without having read Sneak, I really enjoyed Swipe. I thought it was a wonderful portrayal of how the future might be in apocalyptic times. I like that it is a middle grade story, it doesn't sugar coat things, but it is a good starting point to get kids interested in Revelations, it is also a great ... Great YA fiction with an apocalyptic twist
