Promo Blast for Tatiana

BACKCOVER

Tatiana Bergman views life through a different lens than most. She says and does what she likes without regard for hurt feelings on the way. Living in the 1840s in rural Pennsylvania, her passionate, impulsive behavior confounds her sisters and appalls her peers.

Life only gets more complicated when Tatiana befriends Jonny Creek, a mischievous young man whose Native American blood puts him on the fringes of society. Jonny is trouble; Tatiana is intrigued. Together they spell out disaster. From being chased by wolves, to bashing around fancy gatherings, the unlikely pair get into one scrape after another.
When tragedy strikes the Bergman family, Tatiana is compelled to leave the security of her childhood home to live in the bustling city of Philadelphia. There, she is forced into adulthood as she deals with a mysterious young coworker and an unsavory employer.
Tatiana struggles to subdue her wild spirit and keep her heart pure while making the right choices and wrestling with her own woman she finds herself in a battle of her will between two young men and the God she serves.

img_0888

At the beginning of this book, Tatiana is a spoiled child with little thought of anyone but herself.  However, as the book progresses, Tatiana becomes a Christian and attempts to do what is right.  Her friendship with Johnny Creek from the beginning of the book led me to believe there was something special between them.  As the two grow up together, it is apparent that Tatiana thinks of him as more than a friend but ca not allow her heart to follow.  She is determined to marry someone who is a Christian.

I loved how Tatiana interacted with the Reverend and his two children in Philadelphia.  I believe being away from her sisters and father helped her grow up.  I definitely want to read the other books in this series.  Truly it is a book worth reading.

Review and Giveaway for The Ministry of Healing

The Ministry of Heaing FB Banner

About the Book

Book:  The Ministry of Healing

Author: AJ Gordon

Genre:  Christian non-fiction, spiritual growth

Release Date: January 17, 2020

Ministry of Healing CoverClassic Christian author A. J. Gordon expresses curiosity about whether the healing miracles from the Middle Ages up to his day can be verified as a continuation of Christ’s Spirit in the church. Through deep study and inquiry of the established history, Gordon concludes that the power to heal followers remains with the church—there was no special era of miracle working. God and His powers remain the same in the modern era as they have right through human history. For Gordon, God’s intervention in the suffering and sickness of His followers is frequent; the will of the Lord however is variable—but He will not prolong the pain of someone whose illness is too great. Throughout this text, A. J. Gordon makes his argument from a biblical perspective, citing passages in both the Old and New Testament that support the continuation of spiritual gifts. Quoting testimonies of believers across the ages, he offers a convincing argument that the church ministry is, to this day, one of healing.

The Ministry of Healing is a detailed and in-depth look into the Biblical basis for healing after the times of the apostles.  This book is meant to be studied and not rushed through.  Some people may find the book dry and at times hard to follow.

My husband was a Primitive Baptist deacon when we first met.  Then shortly after we were married he was ordained as a preacher.  Many times through the years, I have watched my husband and his father and grandfather go out to various homes to pray for them. While praying, they frequently anointed the people with oil as a way of connecting more meaningfully with God.  So I loved reading that section.

I recommend you check out this book for yourself.

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

 

About the Author

Adoniram_Judson_GordonAdoniram Judson (A. J.) Gordon (1836–1895) came to prominence in the United States as the evangelical pastor of Clarendon Street Baptist Church in Boston for more than twenty-five years. During his tenure there, he saw the church completely transformed into one of the most spiritual and aggressive churches in America, with an unsurpassed effort in missions. A missionary training school and publishing house were associated with the church, and Gordon preached at many of D. L. Moody’s Northfield Conferences, along with other notable preachers such as A. B. Simpson, A. T. Pierson, and R. A. Torrey. His training school eventually became Gordon-Conwell Theological Seminary, in South Hamilton, Massachusetts. He also founded Gordon College, in Wenham, Massachusetts. He wrote his most famous book, The Ministry of Healing, in 1882, but he also wrote at least fifteen hymns, including “My Jesus, I Love Thee,” as well as other books of Christian instruction.

 

More from Whitaker House

This classic Christian work has previously only been self published. Gordon is renowned as founder of Gordon-Conwell Seminary and Gordon College. His writings became foundational work for what later became the spirit-filled movement.

Review and Giveaway for Enduring Love

Enduring Love FB Banner

About the Book

Book:  Enduring Love

Author: Danyelle Scroggins

Genre:  Christian fiction

Release Date: March 16, 2018

Enduring Love(FrontCover)completeNo one ever truly realizes the power of their love, until love is tested and they have to endure things unimaginable and sometimes hurtful. And if the truth is declared, no one wants to but…

Sometimes we find ourselves standing in the test of love and this is exactly where Priscilla Marshall finds herself. Married to Steven since she graduated college, together they were the perfect couple. Both making successful business moves, both loved their choices, but one had a secret that could change their lives.

Priscilla, now forced to make a plan to secure her future, finds out that a plan without God involved is not a plan at all because “Many are the plans in a person’s heart, but it is the Lord’s purpose that prevails” (Proverbs 19:21).

What will God use to make this woman’s plan come full circle with His own, and after the test, will they find that they truly do have an Enduring Love?

img_0888

Have you ever read a book that made you laugh, cry, and more throughout the pages?  This book is one of those books.  Priscilla is an incredibly strong and successful woman who has hard decisions to make.  But we do not realize what all those decisions are until later in the book.

Steven and Priscilla seem to have everything the world views as important:  money, a powerful and successful spouse, and a beautiful home.  Yet appearances can be deceiving.  An unexpected pregnancy seems to set off a tidal wave of destructive forces on their marriage.  Yet they are blessed to have faith in God along with faithful friends to walk beside them.

Regina, Priscilla’s assistant, plays a role in this story, but I can not wait to read her own story.  Nathan, a waiter, has a story of his own that is waiting to be told with Regina’s.  I look forward to reading it.

This book illustrates the power of faith, God, and friendship.  It shows how the prayers of the righteous can be answered.  The Biblical passages quoted, the prayers offered, the Women’s retreat and more come together to make this a powerful book of how God has power.

So I definitely suggest you check this book out for yourself.  It is the first book in a series, and I can not wait to read the next story.

More from Danyelle

I am so elated that you are a part of this awesome Enduring Love blog tour. I’ve always been a love child per se…loving all things romance. When my second grade teacher introduced me to Amelia Bedelia books by Herman Parish, I knew I would write. Then my mom introduced me to romance by Danielle Steels and the bad girl of books—Jackie Collins. Finally, I decided I’d be the Danyelle with the “y” who will write books about love.

Life has been so rewarding as I finally realize that everything I’ve ever faced was simply for my good. The good, bad, and the ugly now find itself woven in the corridors of my books and I’m grateful to be able to share stories with the world of God’s goodness, grace, mercy, and love.

And you know what’s even greater? We don’t have to be perfect to be a part of His family, to receive His love, or to be a recipient of His grace.

He has shown me that I can write about love, problems, situations, and circumstances that we face as humans but also show how we overcome the situations and circumstances we face, by the blood of the lamb and the words of our testimony.

As you read this book or any of my books, understand that they are in fact a testimony to God’s goodness, grace, mercy, and love towards His people.

Be Blessed, Danyelle Scroggins

img_0888

Full of romance, ex-loves, building restoration, and more, this book has a lot to offer.  It shows how forgiveness can be important, and second chances are sometimes worth fighting for in the long run.

William and Jenna were both characters I enjoyed getting to know. Time can change a person, but it takes the opportunity to show that change to prove the point.  It also illustrates what an important role God can play in our lives.

The storyline is one that moves along at a good speed with a Biblical point.  Jenna’s past with William provides an interesting perspective for the story.  So check out this story for yourself.  I definitely recommend reading it.

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

More from Stacey

Afflicted but not Crushed

I created the character, Jenna, from The Builder’s Reluctant Bride, during a time of life filled with chaos. Changed ripped stability out from underneath me. I couldn’t tell if my challenges were from God deigned to build my faith or if they were a temptation from the enemy to doubt God. Life struck with a severity that stole the breath from my lungs, so I retreated into a fictional world to process. I needed to be reminded, like Jenna, that my current struggles didn’t negate the ways God was using me. I needed to remember that God would use everything in my life to shape me into His image and draw me closer to Him.

“I thought after his mom died, I had lost the both of them. Then, you came around.” The corners of his eyes crinkled.

“Me?” she squeaked.

“Yes. You changed everything for him. I know you left for college right after graduation, so you likely didn’t see the change. But God took that seed you planted in my son and grew this man.” He gestured to William, who stood with his fire jacket off and held a dog while it licked his soot-covered face. “This man of God.” Carmen looked squarely into her eyes. “I am indebted to you, Jenna.”

She squirmed at his unquestionable sincerity. She didn’t deserve his praise for directing his son to faith, the same faith that later let her down in every conceivable way.

When life’s chaos hit Jenna, it caused her to question her faith and question God’s goodness. It took her time to sift through the mess and find the truth. God is good.

Still.

Always.

Never changing.

Good.

It might not feel good. You might want to give up. You might think there is no way for God to redeem your story, but Jenna would tell you that you would be wrong.

Birds eye viewIf everything looks so perfect, how does she know it’s all wrong?

Madeline just wanted to learn to develop her own pictures. It seemed an innocent enough pastime until she sees something in the developer’s tray that piques her meddlesome curiosity.

Now she’s on the hunt for clues to spare a man’s life, and she might just land her father in hot political waters while she’s at it.

The fifth book in the Meddlin’ Madeline Series, Byrd’s Eye View sees Madeline back at home in Rockland and determined to stay out of trouble, although that’s not likely to happen, is it?

Chautona Havig is one of my favorite authors, and I have loved reading the books in her series about Madeline.  Madeline demonstrates an incredible ability to find herself caught up in unusual circumstances.  So even though I am only able to review a portion of this book, I was glad to be part of this review.

This book opens with Madeline and her best friend Amy preparing for Amy’s wedding.   I love how the conversations seem real rather than stilted.  I also love the relationship Madeline has with her father.  That connection comes to life through the pages of this series.

I appreciate how Madeline is not afraid to stand up for her beliefs and convictions.  Another thing I find amazing about this series is how Madeline finds herself caught up in dangerous and mysterious circumstances.  She illustrates a remarkable willingness to do what needs to be done.  I can not wait to see how this book turns out.

So I recommend you check out this book and this author for yourself.

I received a copy of the first few chapters of this book for my fair and honest review.

About the Author

Find her on the web and say howdy—if you can remember how to spell her name.

It’s Like This Book Didn’t Want to Be!

It’s an hour and a half from my mother’s old house in Missouri to the Springfield airport—a perfect distance for plotting out a book. So, when I had to drive back to swap out rental cars, I decided to work on the early 2020 books.  Up first… Madeline #5.

Often when I’m plotting out a new book, the first few minutes are kind of jumbled messes as I consider this plot point or that and get into a work flow, and that day was no exception.  However, by the time I hit the interstate again, I’d done it. Madeline would learn how to develop pictures in this one. The plot would revolve around that new skill.

By the time I hit Noel, I’d really come up with a cool book idea. I was so excited.  You have no idea. Then, as I passed Noel on my way to the hospital in Gravette, Arkansas, I stopped on the side of the road so I cold turn off the voice recorder and start working on another book.

The recorder was off.  All my “brilliant ideas” were gone.

Sometimes, I wish I was a crier. It would have been appropriate right there.  Just sayin’.

Determined to record the ideas all over again before I forgot them, I started the first few things, watching the recorder bars rise and fall with the inflection of my voice. It worked great.

The only problem was I couldn’t remember anything I’d come up with.  Photography. That was it.

That’s when I called my friend and wailed.

Look, it had been a hard couple of weeks, a rough day, and now this. But, complaining about it offered enough catharsis that by the time I went back to Springfield the next week, I was able to record most of it again.  Some of it was actually better.

Little hint:  it usually is the second or third round of ideas.

By the time I’d finished, I knew what happened and what havoc it would cause, but not to whom or why. Enter Clark.

You know, the guy who made me split the first book into two separate books (you can read about that HERE), and the guy who tried to make things get really gruesome in book four (you can read about that HERE—halfway down the pageish—and be assured that I didn’t do it).

So, just as I was getting into Byrd’s Eye View, Clark and I met up at Denny’s to figure out how to make all the elements I had work.

My one issue became another one. Why became totally different from anything I’d considered. Who became a great reason for it to make things tough on Madeline’s father, and a previous thing I’d thought was a bit excessive became more so… and more believable at the same time.  How cool is that?

There was still one problem, though.

I wasn’t done with the book I needed to finish before I could immerse myself in this one.

And this book needed to be done yesterday.

Look, I had actually considered not doing this book until later in the year. For a few minutes, I wished that I had. But Madeline always comes out in February/March and I’d kind of like to keep it that way.  So…

Despite losing my notes, having plotter’s block, having Clark upset everything I’d planned and making it better… again.  It’s here.  And I think it’s my favorite one yet.  Who am I kidding?  Of course it is!

Release Date: Feb 15, 2020

Turning TideAs the Great War rages on, Sunset Cove continues to feel its impact. Running the small town newspaper, Anna McDowell can’t escape the grim reports from the other side of the world, but home-front challenges abound as well.

Even as the war winds down the costs are high—and Sunset Cove is not spared.

img_0888

Continuing the story of the people in Sunset Cove, this fourth installment is definitely worth reading.  I have enjoyed getting to know Anna, Dr. Daniel, Anna’s daughter, and the other residents.  They seem to come alive through the pages of these stories.  I found it timely to read about the Spanish Flu coming to the United States.  I also found the reminders of what people endured both on the homefront and on the frontlines comes through the pages of this book.

I have enjoyed reading each of these stories, and I feel this does the series justice.  I have to say I would love to see another book in this series, however, if it stopped here, I could understand.  So if you enjoy reading books about the World Wars, check out this book for yourself. I definitely recommend this book.

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

More from Melody

Writing about the WW1 era has definitely been a good history lesson for me. Prohibition laws in Oregon (and rum-runners breaking them) combined with a massive war that changed the world and a global epidemic is worth paying attention to. Especially since history sometimes repeats itself. The early 20th century had a lot going on—much that seems nearly forgotten. I’m glad to see the movie 1917 is doing well—and we plan to see it this week. Although I’m not a fan of gruesome war movies, this era continues to intrigue me. Even as I wrapped up my Sunset Cove series with Turning Tide I was left wondering . . . what’s next? But isn’t that the beauty of story?

Review of One Little Lie

One Little Lie FB Banner

About the Book

Book:  One Little Lie

Author: Colleen Coble

Genre:  Romantic Suspense

Release Date: March 3, 2020

one little lie

It started with one little lie. But Jane Hardy will do everything in her power to uncover the truth in this gripping new romantic suspense.

Jane Hardy is appointed interim sheriff in Pelican Harbor, Alabama, after her father retires, but there’s no time for an adjustment period. When her father is arrested for theft and then implicated in a recent murder, Jane quickly realizes she’s facing someone out to destroy the only family she has.

After escaping with her father from a cult fifteen years ago, Jane has searched relentlessly for her mother—who refused to leave—ever since. Could someone from that horrible past have found them?

Reid Bechtol is well-known for his documentaries, and his latest project involves covering Jane’s career. Jane has little interest in the attention, but the committee who appointed her loves the idea of the publicity.

Jane finds herself depending on Reid’s calm manner as he follows her around filming, and they begin working together to clear her father. But Reid has his own secrets from the past, and the gulf between them may be impossible to cross—especially once her father’s lie catches up with him.

If you want a book that will pull you in with cults, kidnappings, murder, and more, you should definitely check out this book for yourself.  From the time I began reading the prologue, I could not put this book down.

Having a son she believed died right after birth, Jane’s story broke my heart.  This book took many twists and turns that made it interesting to keep up with the storyline.  With a past that she believes she knows Jane attempts to make a future for herself.

I have to say some twists in the book, I was prepared for, but others I could not believe.  Reid was a character who also pulled me in, and I was glad to finally read the lines that made his actions make sense.

So if you enjoy reading suspense novels, check out this book for yourself.

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