  • Eternal Springs on March 12, 2012

    Eternal Springs is a very good devotional for those who like a quick read. Each day is reflections of Sheila Hollingshead's life and writing, with God as the focal point. It's March 12, 2012 today, and I'm sure that by the end of the year I will know about her personality and much of what she has gone through, if not the details then the emotions and faith which carries her through the good and bad times. It's obvious she not only knows the precepts and concepts of a life centered on God, but also makes it her goal to live by them. She gives you food for thought in her successes and failures. This isn't deep Bible study but a journey into the Eternal Springs of a life in Christ.
  • Redeeming Reputation on June 20, 2013
    star star star star star
    If you like Westerns this one will be right up your alley. It's the beginning novel of the author's Redemption Tales series. Since Deanna Gottreau explained the story in her review I won't do it here. Although PG, as we call him, says he doesn't do romance Redeeming Reputation sucked him in. The action doesn't totally center around the relationship between Nathan and Grace though. With shoot outs and outlaws this novel and the rest of the series will appeal to both men and women. There are saved souls as well as dead bodies of outlaws. The story is fast paced and exciting. The ending finishes this tale yet has you looking forward to the second book in the series: Redeeming Trail. I received a free copy for an honest review of this novel.
