Devotions for Christmas A Celebration To Bring You Joy and Peace By: Zondervan I love the hard cover with the dark blue color they used for the cover and different sizes and colors of snowflakes stand out, it brings peace. The beautiful snowflakes falling makes me miss the North and the fun the kids and I use to have in the snow at Christmas time. What a neat little devotional for Christmas from Dec 1st. to Dec 25. This cute little devotional has a lot of meaning for thinking about Christmas differently then I use to. Like the gifts always seemed so important but it shouldn’t be the meaning of Christmas should make you first think of The Lord, that tiny little bundle that would one day set us free. He would give us the most precious gift of all “His Life” because He loved us that much. The devotion I read first was December 3rd “Heavenly Peace” this story told me something I never knew, it was an amazing story! Maybe it will surprise you too. This special devotional book will make you realize all the that Jesus went through even on that cold wintery night with no room at the warm inn for Mary, Joseph and baby Jesus to keep them from the very cold they endured, He was born in a stable Jesus even showed being humble at His birth. He could have been born in a fancy, wealthy home with warmth all around Him instead He chose to be born in a stable how humbling is that?? Now doesn’t that make you rethink Christmas meaning it did me!!!!!!! This beautiful book has a unique way of bringing the meaning of Christmas straight to your heart. The pictures are exquisite. Stop before you go on to read and just focus on the photographs just linger and drink in the beauty. Christmas for me was special when I had the kids around they sang as they helped decorate the tree we would stop to listen to the Carolers that were going around from house to house singing beautiful Christmas songs. I so miss the Carolers singing and wished Carolers would still go around singing those beautiful songs. People now an days are missing so much at Christmas that us old timers love and miss. Put Jesus front and center from now on. A must have. I received this beautiful devotional free from Booklookbloggers for an honest review. I was not required to write a positive review just an honest one. The opinions I have expressed are entirely my own and no one else’s. 5 Stars ISBN 978-0-310-35608-0

When Jesus Was a Green-Eyed Brunette Loving People Like God Does By: Max Davis Max sounded like me I wasn’t really spiritual with God. I went to church on Sundays and Wed night with my friends. Only the way the Pastor talked about God being made at me for me doing something wrong I was scared of God, not thinking I wanted to be that close now that I look back at what they said. But as I traveled along with Max I see he found the right way to come close to God. When Jesus was a green-eyed brunette is a lovely story of a Godly girl that meant an ungodly man. Max like most kids, they’d rather have fun because they found church didn’t set them on fire. Max didn’t want to sit around listening about a man that made miracles happen, changed lives, and loved people to the point of dying to save them. Then one day a green-eye brunette came into his life she was different she had something no one else had that Max knew. Max wanted to know what it was she had turned Max’s life upside down. So Max found his journey taking a detour that would forever changed his life. The kids he once ran with didn’t want anything to do with him, that’s ok God had different plans for Max along with the little green-eye brunette. Was Max a Jesus freak as they called them in our day? Well one thing for sure Max found out we need to allow grace to soften us, change us and mold us in not just a person that receives God’s grace but is changed by God’s grace as well. You’ll laugh, cry and come face to face with Jesus and know Him intimately, just the way God wants you to be with Him. God wants you to talk with Him, walk with Him laugh with Him as you get to know your heavenly father. He wants that kind of relationship with you. To get intimate with Him you need to be in the word (that is the Bible). I recommend this book highly. A must read. I received this beautiful book free from Worthy Publishing for an honest review.

Pray A to Z A Practical Guide to Pray for your Community By: Amelia Rhodes I love the cover with cute little houses, trees, and lamp post all over the snow white cover. I love to pray for others, my family and my pets but I truly want to be a better prayer warrior, so when I saw this book I knew I wanted it to read and learn more on prayers. There are all kinds of prayers from A to Z for example A- Adoption and Almighty then Z- Zeal and Zodiac. In this A to Z there’s a lot more prayers and they are beautiful. In this beautiful book really is a great book for people that love to pray to their heavenly Father and get close to God. I usually skip the introduction pages and get started into the book, for some reason I read the introduction and the words set my heart racing at the speed of light. This prayer book truly is for the Prayer Warrior that wants to pray for their community. Amelia tells why she wrote the book. Forgiveness caught my eye on page 33 Luke 11:4 Forgive us our sins, for we forgive everyone who sins against us. And lead us not into temptation. Forgiveness is one thing that was a hard lesson for me to learn, why because of my pride got in the way. How about you?? Then I remembered that God for gave me of ALL my sins, shy I can’t I forgive someone for what they did to me, also remember IF you can’t forgive then God won’t forgive you!! Now that is scary isn’t it? Prince of Peace (p. 95) read Isaiah 9:6, Praise God and His son, Jesus, as the Prince of Peace. Have you ever been afraid and called out to God for help? I have and I am sure at some time you your life you have too, but then in all that fear all of a sudden you felt peace wash over you and you wondered why you felt peace in the time if your fear? Well that was God, He answered your pray in your time of need. Our God is a wonderful and faithful Father. Wow how blessed we are. I recommend this book highly. I received this beautiful book free from Worthy Publishing for an honest review. The opinions I have expressed are entirely my own and no one else’s. 5 Stars ISBN 9781617957451

http://www.booksamillion.com/p/NKJV-Study-Bible-Imitation-Leather/Earl-D-Radmacher/9780718009267?id=6774921979665 NKJV Bible Very well made Bible the imitation blue leather color is very peaceful. I love the cover to this Bible In the book of Joshua there’s a comparison of Mose and Joshua. The book of Jeremiah tells meaning of Names, greatest, achievements, early life, and a lot more. It tells of Jeremiah as the Prophet to the Nation 25:1-51. I love the outline of Jeremiah. It also says although the reference to Jesus is not as numerous as Isaiah’s, they are equally as strong very interesting. Psalms is my favorite probably because I studied Psalms 23 as a child. In the book of Psalms it starts out with as one, Authors, structures and categories of Psalms. I enjoyed the way the books brought the bible to life. Connection between David and The Psalms is well documented. David is not the only composer of Psalms. I do like the front of the books that tells of authors, dates. What a very nice addition to this bible. The one thing that I really miss is that God’s words are not in red in bibles anymore as if they are saying that God isn’t important enough to have His precious words to us in red how sad is this? So for this reason I gave this bible 4 Stars instead of the 5 Stars I would have given it. Sorry I picked on this bible to make that statement, but I am hoping if I do this they will start putting God’s word’s in the next Bible. I received this well made bible free from booklookbloggers for an honest review. I was not required to write a positive review just an honest review. The opinions I have expressed are entirely my own and no one else’s. Enjoy reading God’s precious words to you!!! 4 Stars ISBN 9780718009267
