...to find a serious, smart, kind-hearted but tough-minded Christian author. Strongly recommend the book. Whether you count yourself a believer, a skeptic, undecided, whatever. I particularly appreciate the bold (yet still kind) manner in which he challenges the religious assumptions -- yes, religious -- of secular culture. In our day, secular humanism sort of gets a free pass and is not really challenged. For, to view things from a secular standpoint is to view things from a neutral standpoint, or so we are told. But of course secularism is absolutely not neutral, and secularists need to subject their own world view to the same serious examination as they apply to others. Keller helps sift through various axioms, rhetoric, and unchallenged "default" assumptions. A very helpful book, very well-written, and much needed in our day. This is an honest invitation to serious thought and real dialogue, beyond insane screaming on talk shows and other useless exercises.

I bought this book to give to my Dad on Father's Day. I want him to give this book back to me after one yr. of filling it out. It will be a book I will truly treasure forever.

Good gosh. I needed this book. As a very busy mother of six, I often found myself plugging through the day only to find myself flopping into bed at the end of it just exhausted and not knowing what happened in the "between" hours. The words Becky offers are truly the hope of the Lord unfolding with such ease and grace that I found myself in tears many, many times. Tears of gratitude, hope and joy. I felt like my best friend was with me on the couch as I sipped my coffee and refreshed my spirit with Hope Unfolding. If you are a mother, or know one, especially of little ones, THIS BOOK. It is a perfect reminder of the hope we have in and through Christ, especially during our parenting journey.

This book was excellent and I will be reading it again and again. The storyline was excellent and so real life action. This book had me rejoicing, crying, laughing, sad, angry, and yet not wanting it to end. Vanessa Miller has done it again I love the character Issac because the author truly brought (Redemption) to life in his character. To see s bad boy (THUG) turn to Christ and win souls was awesome. I read this book in less than two days. I enjoyed all the characters (Issac, Nina, Keith, Iona, Cynda, Donovan). I am certainly looking for more from this Author she is one of my favor. I can not say enough about this book. Anyone looking to read an (OUTSTANDING CHRISTIAN FICTION BOOK SHOULD READ THIS). The Series was AWESOME

Daily Reflections on the name of God by Ava Pennington This is a great devotional that I have added to my daily reading plan. It is dedicated to the attributes and characteristics of the names of God. The author devotes three days to each name. On the first day we discover how and why He is called that particular name. The second day she teaches us how it can be applied to us, and the third day is dedicated to finding how the name or attribute affects our relationship with God. To me not only is this a devotional, I found it to be a great teaching tool. I especially enjoy the questions after each devotion. It has been a great help to get me to think harder about what I have just read. I give this book five stars, it is very informative and well put together. I want to thank the author and publisher for bringing Christian devotional books like this one to readers like me. I would also like to thank The Book Club Network Inc. for providing me with this book in exchange for my honest review.

I was lucky enough to receive an advanced copy of this book from the author. I wanted an advanced copy after I read the synopsis..."Julianne used to believe in fairy tales; she's been watching for Prince Charming to come charging in on his white steed ever since the day her mother read her Cinderella for the first time. But she's never come close to finding the perfect man-instead she's always tripping over her childhood best friend, Will." Every girl searches for her "perfect love story!" Since the time we are born, our parents read us countless love stories such as Cinderella, Snow White, and Beauty and the Beast to name a few. We go on date after date, both good and bad, and search for the one perfect guy... and sometimes he is right in front of us. Julianne, our key character, has everything. She has a perfect job, wonderful friends, and great mother. The only thing she is missing in her fairy tale is love. Throughout the book, we join her journey in search of her perfect love story. And boy is she looking... Sandra Bricker is an amazing author. During the course of the book, Julianne was so real in Bricker's writing, that I pictured myself as her. I was able to put myself in Julianne's shoes. I had such empathy and passion for this character that it wasn't hard to feel what she was feeling. I would recommend this book to everyone and give it five stars up!! Sandra Bricker is the perfect christian chick-lit author. I would even recommend this book to my non-christian friends. Everyone read this book!!!

Wonderful book. It spoke to my mama's heart so much. I picked it up a day or two after it arrived and read it cover to cover that same day! I have read Becky's blog, Scissortail Silk, for some time so I was very excited to read her book. Honestly, I was concerned about enjoying it because Becky's kids are much younger than mine and she is seriously "in the trenches." But, you know what I discovered? We are all in the trenches. Our trenches are just different! Her writing is relatable to all moms, no matter what stage you are in. After reading you will feel uplifted, encouraged and most definitely, not alone! God has used Becky in a powerful way.
If your mom (or the mom you're shopping for) loves to read, then she'll love getting a new book for Mother's Day. If you're not sure which book will be the perfect gift for her, try one of these. A literary Mother's Day gift (plus a little peace and quiet to enjoy it) is sure to make her day.
