  • A Short Story - Flying the Godly Sky - United on May 14, 2012

    It's not easy to write something like this in a way that is convincing. However this short story does come across as sincere. I personally would have liked a bit more action. Nevertheless,it does what it says on the tin; it makes people realize they need salvation.
  • Redeeming Reputation on April 10, 2013

    If you like cowboys, action and romance, you will love Redeeming Reputation. This is a fast paced and exciting read. Once you start to read it's hard to put it down. There is an evangelistic message, but it's very much part of the story and I loved the clever way the author, George H.McVey put it all together. It's a good book and I really enjoyed it.

  • The Earth Painter on May 15, 2013
    (no rating)
    The Earth Painter by Melissa Turner Lee, is a supernatural romance, and I loved it. It is certainly different! The characters are so well written and will remain with me; especially, Theo! But so will the heroin, Holly. She's a strong character even though beaten down by her awful domineering mother, who goes out of her way to destroy the girl's confidence at every opportunity. However one day at school while rehearsing a play, Holly meets Theo. Interestingly, no one else can see him. They grow close and Theo gives Holly the confidence she lacks; thanks to her mother. Over time of course their friendship becomes something more. Which brings its own problems as Theo is an earth painter and not human. The ending was fascinating and took me by surprise, so I'm glad it's a series, as I'm keen to know what happens, especially to Theo. This is such a good book and beautifully written. I highly recommend it.
  • From 'Why Johnny Can't Read' To "See Paula Write" on May 19, 2014
    (no rating)
    This was not an easy piece to review, as it is a personal story of courage against all the odds. As I know the author, I found it fascinating to read of her struggles. Reading this…realizing what she went through as a child, and young person, has made me appreciate even more what a wonderful author she is. Being mathematically dyslectic myself, this piece of writing really spoke to me. I found the paragraph about Moses particularly edifying. I hope when a young person or an older person reads this, they will realize no matter what difficulties they may face. It is more than possible to overcome, and find happiness and success in their lives. The author’s life is a testament to that fact. I’m sure this piece will bless and encourage others who are struggling with various issues, as it has me.’
  • How Did We Become Angry? Lamb Ministries 7x7: Biblical Recovery for Women Suffering from Trauma & Abuse, Book 1 on May 23, 2014

    I'll be honest, this was not a book I particularly wanted to read. Probably, because I feared it might stir negative emotions from my emotionally abused childhood. And sure enough, it did. Nevertheless, I'm glad I read it. This short book is so affirming, and perfect for easy digestion if one is a little fragile, due to past trauma. Over the many years I have been a Christian, God has gently dealt with, and healed many of my issue. My inner child is healthy, and not afraid to be free and express itself. But when I think of all the pain and suffering so many women and girls are going through, often by the hands of those who should love them, it makes my blood boil. I thank the Lord, for this book, and Paula Rose Michelson's wonderful ministry. Her quiet, gentle spirit, comes across so strongly in this little book, the first of a series. So much in the book made me think. Like the chapter, 'How to find your Personal Scripture.' I think mine would be, 'Perfect Love casts out Fear.' Also the part in the book that speaks of negative words spoken over our lives. 'Worthless, was one that hit me. But as the author rightly says, God has a positive scripture, for every negative word. I think this series of books, is going to be a great blessing and help to hurting women...a perfect tool for group sharing, and ministry.
