Guys! My Friend Wrote a Book! Bonus: Giveaway!!

We’re at a point in human history where you can call someone “friend” without ever meeting them face to face. Technology brings our world closer than ever. Today’s book review is a review of a book a friend of mine wrote - a friend I only know online. I met Xochitl Dixon through a contest wherein I was attempting to win a prize. Instead I won a friend. Cue the “awwww’s”. You may feel she is a friend as well, because she is a frequent writer for Our Daily Bread and I know many of you read that publication. Every time I spot one of her devotionals in ODB I have a secret grin, because, you know, I KNOW her!

Reader, I Need Your Help

This week I received a much anticipated package: a brand new, hot off the presses, copy of the newest edition of the NKJV Study Bible, and, you guys, it is beautiful. I had hoped to have this Bible in my hot little hands before Christmas in order for it to bless someone under their Christmas tree, but I’m kinda liking the idea of starting the new year with a new Bible.

Give Me Kindness and Jesus

Okay, confession time. I didn’t actually read the entire Daily Acts of Kindness today. But I have been reading it every morning to my family around the breakfast table. It is not an overstatement to say that we’re glad we have this book. I appreciate that the focus is on our kindness as an outgrowth of our faith walk and our love for Jesus. To me, kindness and Jesus should always be linked.

But, I really was curious about the book, because I happen to agree with the premise as stated in the back cover blurb, “Research shows that our emotional, spiritual, and physical health are tightly intertwined. Spiritual difficulties can have physical consequences, and physical illnesses can have emotional and even spiritual ramifications.”

Drumroll Please! Tenacious Hope now Available on Amazon!!

Caution: Shameless self-promotion ahead. Except, can it be called self-promotion if I don’t actually receive anything from the promotion? You, dear reader, will be the one who benefits. Nevertheless (which is a great word, by the way), I call it shameless self-promotion because I’m promoting a thing I had a hand in making.

Beneath the Ancient Dust

Can anything good come from Afghanistan? As an American who regularly hears negative news about Afghanistan, I wondered what light Beneath the Ancient Dust would shed on what the true Afghanistan is like. I discovered that, like most things, life in Afghanistan is more complex and nuanced than the local news would have us believe. I also discovered that there is much we can learn from the Afghan people about Biblical truth in everyday life.

Behold the Lamb of God

My good hubby recommended this book to me months ago and I remain a little ashamed to admit that I avoided reading it. This year one of my reading goals is to read one non-fiction book out of every six books I read. Finally heeding my husband’s urging - and in an effort to fulfill my own dumb goal - I picked up Behold the Lamb of God, and I'm so glad I did.
