Reviews by Growing Kids Ministry
On 2/27 Growing Kids Ministry wrote: This wasn't my favorite book. There were some really good principles, but much of the book felt like something I had already read in other leadership books. It took me a really long time to get through this book. You can check out my full video review on my blog. This wasn't my favorite book. There ... Kind of Hit and Miss
On 7/4 Growing Kids Ministry wrote: When my wife and I started to consider kids, we were generally told that boys were great and girls were…well the only advice we got was “LOOK OUT”. After recently having a daughter myself, I was eager to find a book that could provide some practical insights into being an effective dad. From ... Good for Dads!
On 4/7 Growing Kids Ministry wrote: When you hold A Conversation with God for Women by Marcia Ford in your hand, it feels like a high quality book. The cover is beautiful, and the glossy pages cause you to linger over the words on each page. The questions found in this book are relevant and meaningful, and applicable to believers in ... Good for reference or quiet time
On 2/14 Growing Kids Ministry wrote: Engaging. Believable. Personal and Uplifting. These are some of the words I would use to describe Neta Jackson's book, Who is My Shelter? An offshoot from her wildly popular The Yada Yada Prayer Group series, the House of Hope series stands strong on its own accord. With the characters you know and love ... Always a hit!
On 1/31 Growing Kids Ministry wrote: I just finished reading skimming through Couples Who Pray by Squire Rushnell and Louis Duart. I cannot begin to tell you how disappointed I was with this book. The introduction was consumed with author self-accolades and ravings about the celebrity couples whose quasi-perfect marriages were improved ... Warning: This Book Will Not Change Your Life
On 1/10 Growing Kids Ministry wrote: When I picked up this book about a month ago, I read through the first thirty pages or so before putting it down and pronouncing it the most boring book ever. Of course, this was a great disappointment for me, since I was really looking for a book that would help to deepen my prayer life. I've been reading ... Slow start, but wonderful book
On 10/19 Growing Kids Ministry wrote: What a great read! This book, written by Andy's Stanley, has truly captured my attention. Andy took the story of God's grace and shared it in this book in a seamless and beautiful way. I loved the attention to background details and the way he framed all the stories within their context. I wish I would ... Refreshing
On 10/1 Growing Kids Ministry wrote: When I first received this book, I was anxious to dive in. For some reason, it was tough to get into. I'm not a huge fan of the switching back and forth between authors every chapter. It's kind of jarring to get used to different styles of writing every 12 pages or so. Once the stories converged a bit, my reading pace picked up... Hard to get started
On 7/14 Growing Kids Ministry wrote: I had just returned from a great youth camp (I was helping out) and was looking for a good devotional that could really connect me with Christ. I searched all my bookshelves, but came up short. Then, this book arrived in the mail (I forgot I ordered it!) -- perfect timing. It is really good. I wanted ... Just What I Needed
On 6/11 Growing Kids Ministry wrote: What does God expect of us? Apparently, more than we're doing. That's the tagline of the front cover of this book, written by World Vision president Richard Stearns. In this book, Stearns explores poverty around the world and the injustice we commit as Christians when we are aware of such situations ... Hole in the Gospel
On 4/24 Growing Kids Ministry wrote: Raymon Hundley's book "Will the World End in 2010?" is a great starter book for the soon-ending-world discussion. In Hundley's first ten chapters, he neatly explains the most popular theories about the world's soon coming destruction, including the Mayan factor, Nostradamus, and the Large Hadron Collider. ... Great First Read on the Subject
On 4/5 Growing Kids Ministry wrote: Lucille O’Neal exhibits quite a lovable personality as you journey through her book, Walk Like You Have Somewhere to Go. However, the book is not without its flaws. As I read through the first third of the book, I felt weighed down with a strange sense of despondency and gloom as “Big Lou” detailed ... Easy read, but not much substance
