Not Just “Goodreads,” GREAT Reads

So…I wasn’t going to post again before Christmas, but I wanted to share links to a few books that I’m excited about.

Some I have read (and love) and others are waiting (patiently) for me on my Kindle.

When you have a moment, check out these great reads! They would make wonderful last-minute gifts (or they would be an awesome way to use those Amazon cards after the holidays). Just click on the book covers for more info!

Merry Christmas 🙂



What if we valued and cared for ourselves the way one does a
masterpiece sculpted by a master artist? Each of us is a unique
creation crafted by the ultimate Artist. When we realize that, how can we
help but love and care for the body, mind, and heart God has given us?
Weekly encouragements along with practical tips and suggestions will
help you love and care for yourself as your Creator intended. (Amazon)

Just received my signed copy of Love & Care For the One and Only You this week (I have a short contribution in the recipe section) 🙂 Yay, fun!!



Deadly Doll is an entertaining cozy mystery for all ages – but especially great for tweens/teens. Mystery, imagination, and fast-paced adventure will keep you riveted and guessing until the very end. All of the characters were strong and dynamic, but most endearing proved Brooksie who was quirky, creative, and downright funny. This coming-of-age murder mystery held interesting clues, surprising twists, and suspenseful moments. The sometimes painful events and memories were laced with a solid moral code. It’s all there! Easy and pleasurable read with a good balance and a feel good ending. (Amazon customer review)

I am almost finished reading Deadly Doll and I agree with this reviewer! You will fall in love with Brooksie!



What if God took you up on a dare?
Helen Bancroft’s led a good life and feels no need for her daughter’s Savior. When God accepts Helen’s dare to edit her autobiography and prove her righteousness, she’s in for a lesson in her own history. One woman’s journey from unbelief to acceptance turns into the Christmas Eve adventure of a lifetime beneath the red pen of Christ’s mercy and grace. (Amazon)

I can’t wait to dig into this! Lori Stanley Roeleveld will keep you engaged and asking for more!




Nail biting suspense...Romance, Suspense, and God’s Perfect Goodness…An Awesome Novel… (Amazon reviewers) Just a few things readers are saying about For Our Good by Paula Mowery.

Charlie Jarvis is haunted by loss that fuels her desire to rid the world of drug traffickers. When her next assignment takes her back to her hometown, she has to confront her painful past. She has no interest in a relationship since God seems to kill everyone she loves… (Amazon)

On my Kindle, ready and waiting 🙂




When your life is built around a father’s wrath, how can you trust in the love of Father God? 

Mercy’s Rain by Cindy K. Sproles is one of the best books I have read in a while. I started it at night which was a mistake, because I literally did not sleep at all! I could not put the book down! It grabbed at my heart strings from the get go and even after I was finished I couldn’t stop thinking about it. There is only a handful of books that have moved me to tears and this one made the list. (Amazon reviewer)

The Kindle is loaded and ready to go! (I’ve read New Sheets–30 Days to Refine You Into the Woman You Can Be by Cindy Sproles and it is wonderful.)


In Fearless in Euroclydon, a book on bold Christian living, Jacqueline shares how God has been with her and models how to stand boldly in all circumstances.

The word Euroclydon makes one appearance in the Bible, and speaks of the violent storm Paul faced in Acts 27. Several online dictionaries reference Euroclydon as “a stormy wind from the north or northeast which caused the ship in which Paul was traveling to be wrecked.”

Jacqueline’s personal definition? The worst storm imaginable. She shares how she moved from control to surrender, and from anxiety to standing fearless in the storms of life. (Amazon)

You will stand in awe at how God has worked (and continues to work) in the life of Jacqueline.

When I have a few quiet moments, I know what I’ll be doing this Christmas…

Ready, Set, READ!
