Once-A-Day Country Faith

Once-A-Day Country Faith

On 2/6 Denise Mattox wrote: It’s no secret that long before I was a “musician’s widow” to a musician playing country music, I was a huge country music fan. I mean we’re talking rabid fan. We’re talking the girl people came to in high school to ask the scoop on the latest country music gossip because they knew I’d ... [BookLook] — Once-A-Day Country Faith

On 11/16 Denise Mattox wrote: Some days it feels like there is nothing but bad news, everywhere you turn. Health insurance frustrations, devastation in the Philippines, murders, robberies, couples you thought were strong are getting divorced, friends are hurt in a bad car accident, there’s another child diagnosed with cancer… ...

Men of Sunday

Men of Sunday

On 9/5 Denise Mattox wrote: I requested to read and review Men of Sunday: How Faith Guides the Players, Coaches, and Wives of the NFL by Curtis Eichelberger near the end of the last football season. It’s taken me awhile to finish it, but the start of the 2013-14 football season seemed like a prefect time to bring this book back ... [Booksneeze] — Men of Sunday by Curtis Eichelberger

Simple Secrets to a Happy Life

Simple Secrets to a Happy Life

On 10/5 Denise Mattox wrote: I am an optimistic person (on most days… though some mornings are debatable) and I am always looking for ways to keep the optimism alive. Let’s face it, we don’t live in the most optimistic world, given our economy, crime, etc. So, when I saw “simple secrets to a happy life” was an option to ...

Fresh-Brewed Life

Fresh-Brewed Life

On 2/19 Denise Mattox wrote: “A stirring invitation to wake up your soul” is the sub-title for fresh-brewed life by Nicole Johnson. I’m not sure I’ve seen a more fitting sub-title on a book. I received fresh-brewed life over six month ago to review for Thomas Nelson’s Booksneeze program, and for whatever reason I let ...

The Waiting Place by Eileen Button is series of essays written about being in “The Waiting Place” and finding God within it. Button carries the ... [Booksneeze] — The Waiting Place by Eileen Button

On 5/25 Denise Mattox wrote: Lucy Wiltshire is a strong, independent woman who runs a non-profit organization helping young women who have graduated out of “the system” and who are basically left on the streets.

Faithful

Faithful

On 1/11 Denise Mattox wrote: When I opened Faithful by Kim Cash Tate for the first time, I never expected it to suck me in as hard as it did. I read half the book in two days, and I became so wrapped up in it that I had to literally force myself to put it down and live my ... [Booksneeze] — Faithful by Kim Cash Tate

The Right to Lead

The Right to Lead

On 8/14 Denise Mattox wrote: When I finish a book and it has little post it notes sticking out of it, its a visual affirmation of the impact it has made on me. When I finished The Right to Lead by John C. Maxwell, it had inherited multiple post-it notes, and I can guaranteed it won’t be gathering dust on ... [Booksneeze] — The Right to Lead by John C.

Kaleidoscope

Kaleidoscope

On 6/4 Denise Mattox wrote: I’ve been working on this book for several months, and at the end of it I find myself with a serious love/hate relationship with it. Patsy Clairmont presents the book of Proverbs in a quirky and fun way. Each Proverb is given its own chapter (2 – 3 pages long), in which it is analyzed in ...

I Wish You Enough

I Wish You Enough

On 2/20 Denise Mattox wrote: We all have bad days. We all have good days. We all say hello. We all say good bye. We all have sunshine. We all have rainy days. The hope is that we each have enough of all of these to live a full and joyful life. That concept is the basis of the gift ... [BookSneeze] — I Wish You Enough by Bob Perks
