Heroes and Villains of the Bible

Heroes and Villains of the Bible

On 1/29 Maureen Milham wrote: As soon as the kids I work with noticed a new book available to read, they grabbed it right away. Each week we read a story from the Bible, and this book compliments it very well. What I appreciate most about each story is that they are short and easy to read. Because I work with children who English ... Book Review: Heroes and Villains of the Bible

A Place Called Blessing

A Place Called Blessing

On 8/14 Maureen Milham wrote: Another month, another book review. It’s been nice, being able to enjoy reading for pleasure again, now that I have time without studies on my hands.

It Couldn't Just Happen

It Couldn't Just Happen

On 7/27 Maureen Milham wrote: I think it was the teacher in me that first was attracted to this book, but it was a “future parent” in me that appreciated it the most. Because it tackles various topics (dinosaurs, planets, creation, evolution etc.) this book is a great supplement for parents of all higher-elementary/middle school ...

The Velveteen Bible

On 7/5 Maureen Milham wrote: After a loooong journey, across the sea and sitting in customs for a while, my copy of the Velveteen Bible finally arrived.

Left at the Altar

Left at the Altar

On 2/6 Maureen Milham wrote: If you’re looking at the title of the book, and thinking to yourself, “I’ve never been left at the altar… there’s no need to read this book”, let me start by saying, “You’re wrong”. Though the premise of the book is about being left at the altar, the underlining theme of the book is ... Book Review: Left at the Altar

Voices of the Faithful

Voices of the Faithful

On 12/27 Maureen Milham wrote: I have never felt so connected to a devotional book than with this one. Not only is this a yearly devotional, but it’s a yearly devotional written by missionaries serving all over the world. Each day is a new verse and a short story written by a missionary from their “neck of the woods”. The ... Book Review: Voices of the Faithful

A Million Miles in a Thousand Years

On 12/11 Maureen Milham wrote: This was the first Donald Miller book that I read, even after all my friends had been telling me about him for a while now, and I'm glad I finally read one of his books. What I love about this book is how Donald writes. He writes so honestly and open that you can't help but feel a part of his story ... Book Review: A Million Miles in a Thousand Years

Fearless

Fearless

On 1/14 Maureen Milham wrote: Once again, Max does not disappoint with his new book, Fearless.  He is able to take many current-day situations that cause many of us fear, and break them down in a way that only Max could.  There were so many “I can relate to that” moments“, which is what I absolutely adore about his writing. I ... Fearless: by Max Lucado

Reflections of God's Holy Land

On 10/9 Maureen Milham wrote: Some time ago I became a Thomas Nelson Book Review Blogger (it was actually over a year ago).  The problem was this: I moved to Israel right after I joined.  The book that I was supposed to review came to my stateside address, but I was on the other side of the ocean. A year later ... Blogger Book Review: Reflections of God’s Holy Land
