Review and Giveaway for Faithwords Book Club – Take the Day Off

RobertMorris_TaketheDayOff_SocialMedia_DannyGokey

Recently I had the opportunity to review the Faithwords Book Club and its selection for the month, Take the Day Off by Robert Morris.  Considering I love to read and also love sharing about what I am reading, this seemed like a perfect opportunity for me.

ABOUT THE BOOK

Rest your mind, body, and spirit and focus on God’s principles for rest with this helpful guide from bestselling author Robert Morris.

A constant stream of busyness can slowly wear away at us over time: physically, mentally, emotionally, and spiritually. Yet believers often forget that taking a day of rest is one of the Ten Commandments! When we don’t give our minds and emotions a break, our will to make good choices can often become compromised. Resting is also important to those around you. If you have a weary soul, you can’t pour yourself into others at home, work, or wherever you are. It’s vital-you must take the day off.

In Take the Day Off, Pastor Morris explains why rest is central to your wellbeing, how to do it, and how helpful it can be. You will be inspired to experience true rest and make it a priority in the rhythm of your weekly schedule. Don’t wait and delay God’s blessings in your life. Start implementing the principle of rest in your life and you will see eternal benefits.

What others are saying about it:

“I strongly encourage every believer to read and reread this book. I pray it becomes a staple in every Christian home, where we function at our highest level, and can in turn raise a generation to do the same.”

– Bill Johnson, Bethel Church, Author of The Way of Life and Raising Giant-Killers

“I discovered a deep revelation of the importance of Sabbath from Pastor Robert’s teaching years ago. Applying these principles of rest to my life has greatly impacted me and my family and has allowed us to run the marathon of life well. I encourage you to read and apply the wisdom of this book to your life!”

– Kari Jobe Carnes, Worship Leader, Songwriter

“A must-read if you’re feeling overwhelmed and struggling for a light at the end of the tunnel.”

– Danny Gokey, Grammy-nominated recording artist

“As I work with CEOs and other high performers, overload is one of their biggest issues. The boundaries of time and space have disappeared…You are never safe until you remember that God has commanded us to protect some time to rest. Neuroscience and other fields have proven it to be true, and Robert gives us some practical ways to do it.”

– Dr. Henry Cloud, psychologist and co-author of Boundaries

The book club takes place on Facebook, and I have to say unfortunately I do not particularly care for Facebook as the main platform for a book club.  It is too easy to miss posts or for posts to get lost in a sea of other posts and groups.  I really wanted to love this experience, after all, sharing with other individuals all reading the same book should be wonderful. But I felt it lost something in the platform.

Flor some individuals I am sure it would be a perfect fit, especially for those who have a limited number of family, friends, and groups that they follow.  The teaching videos and other relevant information are all shared on the Facebook platform.  The questions, Facebook graphics, and sharing flowed well with the study.  But I had to make it a point to remember to check the group.

Here is an interview with Robert Morris and his wife Debbie.

Here is an excerpt of one of the videos for this book.

 

I have to say I really enjoyed the book.  Robert Morris does an excellent job of examining the effect busyness is having on our society.  This book reminds us of how rest is a necessary and sacred experience.  The book consists of ten chapters that examine everything from the forgotten commandment to The Getaway to Rest and Humility and more.  I found the book easy to read and definitely worth taking the time to read because it encourages the reader to accept God’s gift of rest.

After all, if God took the time to rest on the seventh day of Creation, we should do the same.  But in the hurry-up mentality of today’s society in the world, we need a reminder to rest.

Review and Giveaway for Holly Lane – Christian Jewelry

Holly Lane Logo

Recently I had the opportunity to review a necklace from Holly Lane, a Christian jewelry company that specializes in jewelry designed to share Jesus Christ with others. The company has a line of sterling silver jewelry that allows you to share Christ with others as well as reflect your personal faith.  The jewelry is designed in central Virginia by jewelry artist Tiffany Scott.  She has based her designs on passages of Scripture from the Bible in order to bring comfort to the wearer while representing God’s promise.  The unique designs are meant to encourage conversations about Jesus Christ.

Every piece of jewelry comes with a Story Card that displays the Scripture reference on the front along with an explanation of the design’s significance on the back.  Tiffany’s love of semiprecious gemstones shines through in her use of a variety of gemstones throughout the line.  The Holly Lane line enables customers to put together their own personal combination of pendants, chains, and bead drops that reflect the promises they are holding onto as well as God is speaking to them in their own lives.

Here is a video about how the jewelry is made.

Below is what I found when I first opened my box from Holly Lane.

img_0577

I could tell that every Holly shipment must be packed with a tremendous amount of care that allows the customer to see just how truly special they are.  I know as I opened my box, I could tell the care that was given to shipping my necklace.

MY THOUGHTS (1)

From the moment I placed my order for this review, I could tell this experience would be unforgetable.  From the email I received upon placing my order:

Holly Lane ORDER #23894

Hi Patti, thank you for your order!

We are lovingly crafting your jewelry and getting it ready to send! You will receive a shipping notice via email with tracking info once your order is on the way. First Class Mail will ship in 1-3 business days. Priority Mail will ship same or next business day.

We hope your Holly Lane jewelry will be a constant reminder of His Word and give you many opportunities to share it with others!

View your order status
or Visit our store

 

To the email I received to let me know my package was delivered demonstrates how much Holly Lane cares about the customer.  So many companies seem to be forgetting about their customers, Holly Lane goes to the other end of the spectrum and illustrates how important their customers are to them.

When I opened up the box and found the necklace was wrapped in tissue paper with a ribbon and a gold seal, I felt like I was a very special customer.  Upon opening the tissue paper, I found a box inside.

img_0577

img_0581

img_0578

img_0579

The necklace came with a beautiful card containing the Scripture passage for Proverbs 31:10, 28-29 – which was the necklace I selected.  I truly appreciate the attention to every detail with this necklace.

img_0584

The ruby and other charms on this pendant make it a beautiful and meaningful piece to wear.  Here is the description of the necklace from the Holly Lane website, “A crowned heart because you are a daughter of the King, a blessed charm to represent the great joy of family, and a precious ruby drop to remind you of your great worth. Inspired by Proverbs 31, “She is clothed with strength and dignity, and she laughs without fear of the future. When she speaks, her words are wise, and she gives instructions with kindness…Her children stand and bless her…”  As a wife and mother, I find this necklace so precious to wear.

The necklace is 18 inches long, however, the company does offer extenders if you want a longer chain.  I think at some point in the future I will probably purchase the extender since I like my necklaces to be a little bit longer.

img_0585

I truly love this necklace and am sure I will be purchasing more pieces from this company in the future.

You can use the code “20FORYOU”  to receive 20% off their purchase at hollylane.com

Review and Giveaway for Reclaimed

About the Book

Book: Reclaimed

Author: Stephanie Broersma

Genre: RELIGION / Christian Ministry / Counseling & Recovery

Release Date: August 21, 2019

reclaimedcover

Stephanie Broersma lived a charmed life . . . until the day she discovered a deleted online conversation between her husband and another woman. When confronted, he confessed to a ten-year addiction to pornography and multiple affairs. Yet even as her world crumbled, Stephanie refused to allow Satan to turn her marriage into another dismal statistic.  

Reclaimed: Finding Your Identity after Marital Betrayal is Stephanie’s story—from revelation to reconciliation and all the pain and confusion in between. But it’s also a guide for those whose lives have turned upside down—a raw and honest look at the emotions, decisions, and difficulties women face in marital betrayal. It’s a collection of stories shared by real women, a journal with leading questions to help put words to feelings, and an encouraging compilation of Scripture verses to give strength to the weary. 

Stephanie’s goal in sharing her story is that you will realize that you are not alone. That you are not without hope despite the chaos and pain around you. That you will find healing from the shame, anger, and brokenness that overwhelms you. That you will gain confidence as you rebuild trust and self-worth. And that you will walk out of this fire with your head held high, giving God the glory for the amazing, reclaimed story of your life. 

Click here to get your copy.

What a powerful and moving book this one is.  It delves deep into the gritty and painful realities of what pornography and extramarital affairs cause to the other party.  Stephanie Broersma holds nothing back when talking about the pain and anguish she felt when she discovered her husband was addicted to pornography and had engaged in multiple affairs.  Yet rather than letting Satan destroy her marriage, she and her husband were able to reclaim their marriage and come out on the other side stronger.

The background information provided at the start of the book provides the foundation for the thirty days of readings, exercises, prayers, and thoughts that follow.  I feel this book would be excellent for anyone walking through the pain of infidelity, trying to take proactive action to avoid infidelity or wanting to support someone who is walking through the pain and devastation.

While I have not experienced this in my own marriage, my mother experienced this, and the repercussions were devastating.  My parents’ marriage did not survive.  It broke my heart to see their marriage break up after 23 years of marriage.  So check out this book for yourself.

I received a copy of this book for my fair and honest review.

 

About the Author

stephanie b author shot

Stephanie Broersma is a living example of how God brings beauty from ashes in the lives of His children. Married since 2002, she and her husband, Tim, have walked through the valley of marital betrayal and come out the other side stronger, more in love, and fully devoted to Christ. She now heads Reclaimed Ministry, an organization that seeks to help other broken brides recover from the pain and devastation of marital infidelity. For more information or to find help, visit reclaimedministry.com. 

More from Stephanie

FUN FACTS about the book and Stephanie:

– In keeping identities private, Stephanie had to come up with a system to replace names when sharing stories from other women. She replaced the names with cast members from her favorite TV series, The Office.

– Stephanie has walked in two Susan G. Women 3 Day breast cancer walks and has ran in races with distances from 5k-50k.

– Her goal is to run a race in every state by the age of 50. She’s welcome to invitations and races with causes.

“Reclaimed is here to walk you through your season of brokenness. To support you with authentic tools and scripture based guidance that supports you and meets you exactly where you are. My name is Stephanie and I also have come from a place of dark despair. I created these materials to guide you on the path to wholeness and living a redeemed identity.

If your husband has had an affair… if pornography or sexual addiction has hurt your marriage… if you have discovered an emotional affair… then this message is for you.

Here’s why…

The problem is most women don’t know where to go for help when they discover an affair. Many will get counseling. Some will talk to close friends and family. Many will hide and pretend everything is fine. But none of that brings about the healing we need.

  • We need to connect with a community that understands what we are going through.
  • We need to discover the healing available through Jesus Christ.
  • We need a life that doesn’t feel out of control.

What happens if you don’t find healing? If you just keep doing what you have been doing? You remain stuck in brokenness and shame and may even continue enabling the same patterns of abuse.

My heart is for you to

  • Find your true identity
  • Develop confidence
  • Learn to love again”

Review of Thinkwell Press’ High School Math

Thinkwell Press Review

think_well_homeschool_logo

When it comes to teaching High School Math, I prefer to use video-based instruction such as Algebra 1 from Thinkwell.  Our high school-aged daughter prefers to do any other subject more than math, so I am always on the hunt for math programs that will help her understand mathematics. I am so glad we had the opportunity to review this program.  Because we already had another math program she was using, we utilized this program as a supplement to what she was already doing.  So I wanted her to aim to use this program three times a week.  This online program can be accessed anywhere at any time.

Thinkwell Press png

Thinkwell Press offers online homeschool programs for grades six through Calculus.  In addition to the mather courses, they also offer a selection of science and economics honors courses.  The courses are video-based and are taught by award-winning professors.  The Algebra I course is taught by Professor Edward Burger.  As a parent, I appreciate how clearly he speaks and how everything he does is explained and illustrated.  Placement tests are available so you can make sure your child begins at the right level for them.

Thinkwell Press Graphic 3

I love the convenience of our daughter being able to watch the videos and do the exercises.  Then if she should encounter any difficulties, she can come to her father or me.  The videos are clear, concise, and do an excellent job of explaining what the students will be doing.  As a former math teacher, and someone who loves math, I appreciate the fact the problems being demonstrated correspond to what our daughter has to do on her own.

img_0858

The course is broken down into sections that cover:

  • Foundations for Algebra
  • Equations, Proportions, and Percents
  • Inequalities
  • Functions
  • Linear Functions
  • Systems of Equations and Equalities
  • Exponents and Polynomials
  • Factoring Polynomials
  • Quadratic Functions and Equations
  • Data Analysis and Probability

I love how our family had the ability to jump around in the course to the sections our daughter needed to work on.  I also appreciated the fact that the online exercises for the sections we worked on could be printed and worked out on paper prior to completing the answers on the computer.  Another handy feature is the fact that real-time feedback is given.  So when our daughter put in her answer for a problem, she immediately knew if she got it right or wrong.  But in addition to just saying if the answer is right or wrong, the solution is also displayed which helps ensure your child can see what they needed to do if they got the problem wrong.  In addition to worksheets and exercises, there are also review exercises and their answer keys provided.

28478c35-fcbd-4c20-ae31-1dc46efa9025-571-000000b56d202f14_file

Another feature I really appreciate is the fact that the transcripts of each lesson are provided.  So families can print them out for the student to refer back to if they have encountered any difficulties.

You can find Thinkwell Press on social media on Facebook and YouTube.

So if your family is looking for an online math program, check out the High School Math, programs including Algebra 1 from Thinkwell.  Other members of the Home School Review Crew are reviewing Algebra I along with other grade levels and courses from Thinkwell Press, so check out their reviews by clicking here or on the graphic below.

Review for Lake Season

Lake Season FB Banner

About the Book

Book: Lake Season

Author: Denise Hunter

Genre:  Contemporary Romance

Release Date: November 12, 2019

Lake SeasonA lost letter, a new love, and old secrets beckon this summer at the Bluebell Inn.

When their parents die in a tragic accident, Molly Bennett and her siblings pull together to fulfill their parents’ dream: turning their historic Bluebell, North Carolina home back into an inn. The situation would just be temporary—three years at the most—then they would sell the inn and Molly could get back to chasing her own dreams.

Adam Bradford (aka bestselling author Nathanial Grey) is a reclusive novelist with a bad case of writer’s block. Desperate for inspiration as his deadline approaches, he travels to the setting of his next book, a North Carolina lake town. There he immediately meets his muse, a young innkeeper who fancies herself in love with his alter ego.

Molly and Adam strike up an instant friendship. When Molly finds a long-lost letter in the walls of her inn she embarks on a mission with Adam to find the star-crossed lovers and bring them the closure they deserve. But Adam has secrets of his own. Past and present collide as truths are revealed, and Molly and Adam will have to decide if love is worth trusting.

0001-2253413483

Let’s face it, love is not always easy.  Sometimes you can find the right person when you are not even looking.  With the setting in North Carolina, which is our family’s home of record, I knew I wanted to read this book.  The devastation Molly and her siblings must have felt with the deaths of their parents, I can not imagine the pain they felt.  However, deciding to put her own dreams on hold, Molly convinces her older brother and her younger sister that the three should embark on fulfilling their parents’ wishes to turn their home into the inn their parents desired.

When Adam Bradford, a best-selling author, enters the scene, I could feel the chemistry between the two as I read the words written.  Truly these two seemed made for each other.  If they can just get through the secrets and other things that hinder their romance. So if you want to read a wonderful book with captivating characters that are worthy of a Hallmark movie, check out this book for yourself.

I received a copy of this book for my fair and honest review.

Review and Giveaway for Dreaming of the Majors

About the Book

Dreaming of the Majors Front Cover

Book: Dreaming of the Majors

Author: Dick “Lefty” O’Neal

Genre: SPORTS & RECREATION / Baseball / History

Release Date: April 4, 2014

By all counts, Dick “Lefty” O’Neal didn’t have a chance of playing professional baseball. However, today he holds the distinction of being the only white baseball player to pitch for two teams in the Negro Leagues that flourished throughout the twentieth century. “Dreaming of the Majors” is his account of the dream he nurtured from the age of five to play Major League baseball, the people God brought into his life who shaped the dream, and the amazing and unexpected twists and turns Dick experienced along the journey toward fulfilling the dream.

Let me start off by saying I am not an athlete.  I have never desired to be an athlete.  However, growing up I remember my grandfather watching baseball games. So when I had the opportunity to read and review this book, I felt the need to do so because of the relationship I had with my grandfather.

This book for me served as a combination of memoir, Biblical truths, and the importance of recognizing who God has called us to be.  I think one of my favorite parts of the book was when he talked about the boy who wanted his autograph at an Old-timers game.  The way he treated that boy was a true example of someone who intimately knows and follows Jesus Christ.

I also loved reading about Lefty’s relationship with his father and desire to have him be a part of his life.  So whether you are a sports lover, an athlete or neither, this book has something to offer.  It is definitely worth reading.  So check it out for yourself.

I received a copy of this book for my fair and honest review.

About the Author

Richard O'Neal_Dreaming of the Majors

Lefty is currently an Adjunct Professor in Speech, Motivational Speaker, and MLB Scout. He is also a consultant for a possible movie, “Dreaming of the Majors,” which would be based on Dreaming of the Majors – Living in the Bush. He has two grown children, Amy and Adam. He and his wife Harriett have been married forty-plus years and live in Universal City, Texas.”

 

More from Lefty

“I wrote my story in order to pass on to my son and daughter what their father experienced in his walk through life as a Christian. I wanted them to understand that  if you have the right purpose, surrounded by the right people, you can make a difference if you listen to His guidance. Using a sports platform was perfect for me to share that whatever your dream is as you are growing as a ballplayer and a Christian helps you stand as an example for all who dreamed of playing a sport.

I had no idea the book would relate so well to anyone who dreams their dreams,  but more importantly, if it doesn’t turn out the way you thought it would they realize it was God’s plan to put them where they are. People have found that blooming  where they you are planted is right where God wants you to make a difference.

My story is one of hope, persistence, never give up attitude, and it encourages all of us to pursue our dreams regardless of the obstacles that stand in our path. But to remember that our Heavenly Father’s spirit has always been with us throughout the journey, wherever it takes us”.

Review and Giveaway for Soul Mend

Soul Mend FB Banner

About the Book

Book: Soul Mend

Author: Luann Dunnuck

Genre: Christian Non-fiction, Christian Personal Growth, Counseling

Release Date: April 12, 2019

Soul Mend Cover FrontRestore your emotional health!

Have you felt trapped in an endless cycle of fear, anger, guilt, and other negative emotions? Has depression, anxiety, fear of rejection, or the inability to let go of past hurts robbed you of peace?

No matter how hopeless or discouraged you feel, freedom is possible. It’s time to get to the root of your pain so you can heal. In Soul Mend: Discovering Spiritual and Emotional Health, author Luann Dunnuck shows you how to uncover the source of your emotional struggles and experience wholeness with the help of God’s Holy Spirit.

See the connection between your mental and physical health. Find scriptural truths to help you work through emotional struggles. God has answers for you and declares in Jeremiah, “Is there anything too hard for Me?” Let Him do the impossible in you as you apply the concepts in this book, rely more heavily on God, and regain the joy of living!

img_0663

Soul Mend examines the connection between mental and physical health.  When one or the other of these suffers, the other one will suffer as well.  This book is broken into sections.  The first looks at when nothing is working.  The second examines the cause and repair of damaged emotions.  The third, and final part, looks at continuing to overcome.

The book includes personal stories, such as Luann Dunnuck experienced throughout her life. We need to recognize that only God knows the future, and we need to trust Him for everything. With Scriptural references to support her thoughts, Luann Dunnuck does a masterful job of weaving the words of this book together.

I found myself wanting to keep reading. I found myself agreeing with the fact that Satan wants us to believe in his lies rather than in God’s truths.  She illustrates many of her points with facts about Jesus and the words He spoke.  Truly this is a book worth reading.

I received a copy of this book for my fair and honest review.

About the Author

Luanne DunnickLuann Dunnuck is a conference speaker, author, and counselor. She has a heart for those who are seeking emotional wholeness and spiritual health. Luann earned her master’s degree in Christian counseling and a doctorate in theology, and is a licensed minister with the Assemblies of God.

Her message of hope and restoration has been heard on radio and television—including Words to Live By, produced by RBC Ministries, and Crossroads Magazine. She and her husband, Robert, have three grown children.

 

More from Luann

SOUL MEND was written to break people out of their emotional chains! I know first hand what such things as anxiety, strife, guilt, and unforgiveness feel like. I know first hand how devasting these emotions can be on the physical body. After walking through some of these issues and recovering from a debilitating diagnosis I decided it was time to go back to school, get my counseling degree, and help other people!  In SOUL MEND I cover the three sources of negative thinking and how they impact our emotional and physical health. There are chapters on; a broken heart, stress, guilt, self-reproach, anxiety, and anger/bitterness.  Each chapter contains study questions to help the reader identity and heal from toxic emotions. The book ends on a uplifting and encouraging note on how God created you to walk in His destiny and His goodness. There is always a purpose in your pain and the Bible is clear that what the enemy meant for evil God promises to turn around for God when we seek Him (Genesis 50:20, Romans 8:28). I am excited to go on this journey with you and help you discover the healing and destiny that awaits you
