"How come puppies get to bark, but kittens can't? Why do elephants have such long trunks when other animals don't risk tripping over their noses? What's the point of all these differences? Through playful illustrations of animals and warmhearted words in rhyme, young children will see God as their loving creator. God Made Us Just Right helps them realize that God has a reason for creating us just the way we are. Kids who are always asking, "Why, Mom?" and "How come, Dad?" will easily relate to the back-and-forth question-and-answer format. It's a book the whole family will enjoy"

My Thoughts: 
God Made Us Just Right is the most adorable book on how God created His children. Reading this book, made me tear up as an adult. This little hardcover book is so sweet and touching. The illustrations are beautiful with rich colors and adorable animals. Your child will love this touching story and it will become a favorite. I love this little book. It is the perfect conversation between a child and their parent about how we are uniquely created by God for a purpose. This would be such a sweet book to purchase for your child to read before they go to bed. I love this book, it is so cute! Grab a copy today.

Living Unbroken: Reclaiming Your Life and Your Heart after Divorce by Tracie Miles

Living Unbroken: Reclaiming Your Life and Your Heart after Divorce

by Tracie Miles 

Unlike other books on divorce, Living Unbroken takes a deep dive into understanding and overcoming the emotional toll divorce, separation, and the loss of a serious long-term relationship has on a woman’s well-being. As someone who has walked this path, Tracie Miles leads women on a powerful, life-changing journey that provides much-needed hope, encouragement, and practical guidance for living their best life even if it’s not the life they once imagined. Her biblically sound approach teaches readers how to trust in God’s promises and restore their self-confidence and hope for the future.

My Thoughts:
Living Unbroken is the story of a woman who tells a story of hope after divorce. As someone who has walked through divorce, Tracie offers the reader compassion, empathy, understanding and connection through the devastation of divorce. This book offers the reader, the truth of God's word as they walk through a difficult season. 
If you have walked through divorce, this book will help you as you heal, trust God and reclaim the dream that God has for your life. If you know someone who is going through a divorce and has been through one, this is a real encouragement.

Burying Daisy Doe By Ramona Richards

Burying Daisy Doe


No cold case is more important than the one that destroyed her own family

Every small town has one unsolved case that haunts its memory, festering for generations below the surface with the truth of humanity's darkness. Star Cavanaugh is obsessed with the one that tore her family apart.

Over sixty years ago, Daisy Doe was murdered and discarded outside Pineville, Alabama, buried without a name or anyone to mourn her loss. When Star's father tried to solve the case, he was also killed. Now a cold-case detective with resources of her own, Star is determined to get to the bottom of both crimes. But she'll have to face an entire town locked in corruption, silence, and fear--and the same danger that took two other lives. The only people in town she can trust are her grandmother and the charming Mike Luinetti, and both of them trust a God Star isn't sure she believes in. Can Christians so focused on the good really help her track down this evil?

With an irresistible combination of sharp suspense, faith, humor, and authentic regional flavor, Burying Daisy Doe will draw fans of Terri Blackstock, Margaret Maron, Jaime Jo Wright, and J. T. Ellison.

My Thoughts:
Burying Daisy is the first time I've read a book by Ramona Richards. The dual time line with a southern charm made this book suspenseful, fun and kept me on my toes as I turned each page. The small town feel of this novel, will capture the reader until you finish the book. I enjoy this book and recommend picking up a copy today.

When Anxiety Strikes: Help and Hope for Managing Your Storm By: Jason Hobbs

When Anxiety Strikes: Help and Hope for Managing Your Storm

By: Jason Hobbs
When Anxiety Strikes: Help and Hope for Managing Your Storm  -     By: Jason Hobbs

Manage or prevent anxiety using faith-based methods

"Fear not." "Do not be afraid." "Peace be with you." Phrases like these appear in the Bible more often than almost any other proclamation. We long to follow these commands. Yet for many, something inside us is wary, ready for anything and everything to go wrong. In fact, a quarter of Americans struggle with anxiety disorders--and Christians are not immune.

Jason and Dena Hobbs are familiar with this struggle, professionally and personally--Jason as a clinician, Dena as someone with anxiety, and both as pastors of congregations full of anxious people. They also know the shame and confusion that so often accompany these disorders, especially for people who think their faith should be strong enough to overcome these struggles. With their deep understanding, they've written When Anxiety Strikes, an eight-week guide to managing anxiety, grounded in both Scripture and research.

Structured for daily reading, with integrated practices for everyday life, the book addresses seven themes: breath, body, movement, mind, change, spirit, and community. Concise stories, readings, questions, and activities guide readers to tackle the realities of living with anxiety. When Anxiety Strikes offers real solutions to find a solid landing place when the storm of fear looms.

My Thoughts:
When Anxiety Strikes is the perfect book for the time we are all living in. Nothing like a worldwide pandemic to strike anxiety. Whether you anxious about basic living needs or whether you'll have a job next month, this book will help every reader to learn new ways to tackle anxiety. This book is a great tool that I recommend everyone read and keep on their shelf, while referring from time to time. The techniques are great and are founded on biblical principles, which I appreciate in terms of helping the reader. I highly recommend this book. It is a very simple read, but important read. I especially think this book is important if you have children. It is such a great resource!
