Come With Me By Suzanne Eller



Proverbs 31 Author Calls Women to a Revolutionary Faith
What if there was a real-life invitation to a lifetime of unexpected destinations and adventure? What if your faith was the key?

In her warm, conversational way, Proverbs 31 author Suzie Eller shows how your faith is just that. How when you take a step away from the uncertainty, the to-do list, the busy life, the worries and excuses, you take a step toward the One who promises to delight and surprise. Who brings you deeper than you ever thought possible.

Two thousand years ago, 12 men answered the call to follow a man they hardly knew--and they were changed in ways they never imagined. Today that same invitation echoes across history, beckoning you to an adventure that will spill into every aspect of your faith and life.
Come with Me. Will you say yes?

A Daughter's Dream By Shelley Shepard Gray




In Shelley Shepard Gray’s second book in her Charmed Amish Life series, a young teacher and farmer discover they have much in common, especially when it comes to healing old wounds from the past…and finding love in one another.
Rebecca Kinsinger has always dreamed of being a teacher. But when she’s given the opportunity she’s been waiting for at Charm Amish School, she’s dismayed to discover that teaching is hard work—work she’s afraid she’s not very good at.

That is, until Lilly Yoder joins the class. A thirteen-year old who’s just lost her parents, Lilly is in need of someone like Rebecca. For the first time since starting her new job, Rebecca feels a sense of purpose. But when she meets Lilly’s uncle, Jacob, his good looks and sweet, easy-going temperament are hard to ignore. How can she even entertain romantic thoughts of Jacob when his niece is her student?
Suddenly becoming Lily’s sole caregiver, Jacob Yoder never thought he’d be a single parent—or a farmer. Having been living in Florida as a carpenter, Jacob feels more at home wielding a hammer than a backhoe. The only bright spot in his life is Rebecca Kinsinger. As Lily and Rebecca develop a bond, Jacob’s fondness for the pretty teacher grows, too.

But when a fateful accident brings them together, Rebecca and Jacob must choose between duty and desire. Will they follow the path before them? Or set out to find true happiness…and true love?

This is the second book in The Charmed Amish Life series. But it can be read as a stand alone.
I really enjoyed the characters and the storyline. This is not a predictable Amish read. Its a different story then most Amish books.
You are going to enjoy this book, and be waiting on the next book in the series.
Gray has a way of making you wish that you were there in Amish Country with the families that she writes about.
I gave this sweet story 4 stars and I recommend this series.

Don't you all just love this cover?
Kinsey wrote a wonderful book with Greater Love. I fell in love with Rainey and Trey and just had to see what happened between them. Kinsey grabbed my attention and didn't let go. I truly hated to see the book come to an end. This is a story that will tell about God's love and redemption no matter our circumstance. I was guessing to where the book would turn next and I love that about this book. Some authors have become so predictable that you can tell where the story will go before it gets there. I really liked Kinsey's book and recommend this one as well.
I gave this book 4 stars.

I was so excited to go back to Hidden Springs Kentucky. After reading book one I had been waiting for this mystery to arrive.  This is the best mystery series and I like it much better then Gabhart's Shaker series. I can't wait for book number three. 
Murder Comes by mail is a great mystery. It was good to visit Hidden Springs and help Michael and the gang figure out the murders that took place. There are a few characters that return in this book plus a few new ones as well. The characters are written in such a way that they come to life right off the pages. Gabhart had me hooked from the very first word to the very last. This is the second book in the Hidden Spring series but it can be a stand alone book. The first book of the series was very good but I think that this one is even better. This book has it all comedy, romance, mystery and suspense. I loved this book. Run to the nearest book store and buy this book. You will not regret it.
I gave this book 5 stars two times. I HIGHLY recommend this book.

Wild and Free By Jess Connolly & Hayley Morgan



For all the fullness of God available to His daughters, we often feel limited by two defining insecurities: “I am too much,” and “I am not enough.”
Co-authors and best friends Jess Connolly and Hayley Morgan have felt the same, until one essential question turned the tables on it all: If God is wild and free and he created women, what does this mean for us today?
Wild and Free is an anthem and an invitation in equal parts to find freedom from the cultural captivity that holds us back, and freedom to step into the wild and holy call of God in our lives. With fresh biblical insight tracing all the way back to Eve and a treasury of practical application, Jess and Hayley reveal how women today can walk in the true liberty we already have in Jesus.
Because you don’t have to be everything to everyone. You don’t have to try so hard to button it up and hold it together. And you certainly don’t have to quiet the voice that God gave you when he created you to sing. Wild and Free will help you shake off the lies of insecurity in your life, and step forward to maximize your God-given influence for his glory and the world’s good.

This is a review that is hard to put into the right words. I want to do this book justice but, you just need to pick up a copy of this book and dive into it. You won't be sorry ladies.
I call this a book of hope. Ladies again this is a MUST read. It is full of stories we can all relate to and toward by two ladies that love us and want to share this journey with us.
I underlined and highlight over half of the book. SO much helpful info in this little book.
Reading it is just like sitting and talking with Connolly and Morgan and spending quality time with close friends.
They define WILD as: walking in who God made us to be and FREE as: resting in what Jesus has done for us.
I never thought of those two words being defined like that.
A life changing book for us ladies who are ready for the change.
I gave this book 5 stars. I HIGHLY recommend this book.
