Using Our Talents
Audra: Life Transformed by Carol J Nelson is a charming contemporary Christian novel that continues the Chandler’s Grove series. I recommend reading book one first as this book begins where the previous book finished.
Life is not always easy but God is faithful. We are urged to pray for our enemies and when we do, we release any bitterness that was building up in us.
Once more Carol Nelson has presented relevant issues that may affect us – from an overbearing presence exerting their authority to children in need of loving homes, and many other situations.
Kind hearted characters open their hearts and homes to those in need as they ‘take care of widows and orphans.’
We Love Because He First Loved Us
Audra Dying For Life by Carol J Nelson is a powerful contemporary novel with God at the centre.
The main character receives some health news that means there are some tough choices to make. There is an element of fear but as she trusts God to reign in her life, the fear is replaced by His peace.
When God is the Lord of our life, we can trust Him to direct our steps. “Did she truly want God’s will for her life, or did she want God to do her will?” We need to be sure to tune in to what God says and not be led by our own inner voice.
God is a God of love. No matter how far we have strayed, He longs to welcome us back. “Is He angry with me?” God is not a God who bears grudges, He desires and He delights to welcome us home.
