Hiker Girl On A Journey
When Mountains Sing by Stacy Monson is a most delightful
contemporary Christian novel and part of the Mosaic Collection.
The novel is a journey of discovery to find out
not just who we are but whose we are. We all want to know our roots but they
are not nearly as important as knowing to whom we belong. We are a child of God
whether we realise it or not. “You were never an oops in His eyes… Your true
DNA is found in Him.” No matter what the truth about our conception, each one
of us was planned by God. We are “exactly who God meant you [us] to be.”
Within the novel there is the theme of family. “Blood
isn’t the only thing that makes a family.” Family is the people who love us and
look after us. We are also adopted into God’s family. No matter what our past
looks like, we can all have a glorious ending with God.
What’s Wrong With My Hat?
Jessie And James by Jennifer Beckstrand is the most
charming Christian historical romance that warms the heart and soothes the soul.
Jennifer Beckstrand always writes such
delightful novels that I sink into from the start. Jessie And James is wonderfully amusing. The lead character is a
strong minded young woman who carries a large gun everywhere and isn’t afraid
to use it! She meets her match in James who is a wonderful partner for verbal
The whole novel has a warm family atmosphere
with characters bonding over the Word, food and song. Huge hearts realise that
men are hungry not just for food but for God.
Characters need Jesus and the best way to show
Jesus to them is by kindness. No one responds well to a verbal lashing. Jesus
needs to be shown in our actions.
A Bend In The Road
Love On The Beach by Kerry Evelyn is a delightful, feel-good
contemporary Christian romance. It is a novel about trust and second chances
and recovering from loss.
Loss consumes. Sometimes we are eaten up with
guilt. “So many what-ifs.” We cannot live our lives with one foot in the past,
our guilt and regrets will never change what happened. We need to put the past
in the past and step into the present. “Sometimes we have to remember to move
God gives us dreams. Sometimes our dreams
change over time. We need to be obedient to God and move when He says move. We
must be prepared for God to interrupt and even change our plans. We can trust
Him with our lives even when others have left us vulnerable and with trust
issues. God will never let us down.
The Battle Is Not Yours
Infernal Gates by Michael J Webb is a thrilling Christian end times
adventure suspense that will have the reader on the edge of their seat.
Life is so much more than we can
see, hear and touch. It is a spiritual battle. “The spiritual realm was more real to her than
the one her five senses revealed.” The battle has been raging since the dawn of
time. We need to fight it on our knees, calling out to God. The battle is not
ours but His.
There is power in the Name of Jesus. At His
Name the demons will flee. We need
to know that we can call on Jesus at any time.
God has a plan for our lives. Some of us were
chosen for such a time as this. No matter how dark life looks, God walks beside
us. Life can be horrendous. “Where was God in the camps?” It may seem like God
is absent but we cannot rely on our feelings, no matter what they say, God will
never leave us. We must be sure to “never
give up hope. Even in the darkest places.” Without hope the people perish.
