Stumbling on Open Ground

Stumbling on Open Ground

On 3/3 JY wrote: "Stumbling on Open Ground" by Ken Mansfield does not feel like a book at all. It feels like he is talking to you directly and sharing openly with you about his life and struggles.

Your 100 Day Prayer

Your 100 Day Prayer

On 2/7 JY wrote: I really loved this little book, even though it was an ebook. I think as Christians it's easy to forget that prayer is one of the most critical part of our relationship with God.

Ascent from Darkness

On 11/14 JY wrote: All I can say is wow! Every page kept me on my toes, and sucked into the world of Michael Leehan.
