TheHighCalling.org Newsletter Review

Image
TheHighCalling.org, is an online magazine and community founded on the belief that God cares about our daily work. This website is FULL of articles, interviews, devotionals, and inspirational stories—all specifically created to help you find God in your work, family, and culture.

Courageous Teens Book Review

Image
I had the wonderful pleasure to review this book Living For God As Courageous Teens by Michael Catt and Amy Parker.  I absolutely loved the movie Courageous, so when I was asked to review this book, I thought what a great opportunity to read a book helping teens to be courageous!  Yes...I know I am no longer a teen, but I have a teen in my house and a tween...and two more coming up after them...so I felt that it would be a great book to read, get insight from, and then pass on to my teens, one by one.
The book actually has 4 sections.  Courageous Faith, Courageous Leadership, Courageous Priorities and Courageous Influence.  Each section begins with a "script" referring to the topic, and then the author explores the examples of people in the Bible who displayed great courage when playing it safe would have been easier.  To quote the Intro section of the book, "Each section begins with a segment of Joshua's story of courage and throughout we explore other leading exa…

Voice in the Wind Book Review by Francine Rivers

Image
This classic series has already inspired nearly 2 million readers, but both loyal fans and new readers will want this 20th anniversary edition of a Christian classic, which includes a foreword from the publisher, a letter from and Q & A with Francine Rivers, color map, an illustrated glossary, and discussion questions suitable for personal and group use.
The first book in the bestselling Mark of the Lion series, A Voice in the Wind brings readers back to the first century and introduces them to a character they will never forget—Hadassah. Torn by her love for a handsome aristocrat, this young slave girl clings to her faith in the living God for deliverance from the forces of decadent Rome.
MY TAKE:
After having read Francine Rivers' book Redeeming Love and claiming it to be my favorite book ever read, I knew I was in for a treat with this book!  I was SO excited to start reading it!  It didn't disappoint....what a great story teller Francine Rivers truly is.

Second Grade Writing Prompts for Seasons review

Image
My daughter LOVES to write.  She has such an active imagination!  But...sometimes she gets stuck.  With Second Grade Writing Prompts for Seasons, it helped her to think outside the box.  One of her favorite questions was,  "After a chilly day of leaf raking, what would be your ideal fall
meal to warm you up? Would it be a soup or a stew? A baked lasagna or meatloaf? Explain your meal in great detail using all five senses to relay your experience."  She really went all out on her description.  To have power over what she would eat.....it gave her ALL sorts of ideas!!!  I enjoy these books as it really helps my kids to dig deeper into their writing.  It helps them to access the part of their brains that maybe they closed off once they left the school building!  I enjoy it because it helps them in writing, it helps them imaginatively and it keeps the house quiet for an extended period of time!  :-)

Bryan Cohen has MANY other writing prompts books.  Quite a few to choose from! …
