Nourished

Nourished

On 2/26 Cheryl Cope wrote: This book was unique in the fact that it was authored by a mother-daughter team. This team effort brought in freshness and a little bit of delightfulness. I found the style of writing to be very personable and a whole lot of story. It felt a little bit like chatting with friends, but more like only ... Nourished by Becky Johnson and Rachel Randolph

The Aerobic House Cleaning Lifestyle

The Aerobic House Cleaning Lifestyle

On 1/7 Cheryl Cope wrote: This book was basically about how to turn house cleaning into aerobic exercise. To that end the author did a fairly good job. There were several good actual fitness tips included throughout and even some detailed explanations of some exercises with photos included. Please note that in the kindle edition ...

It's A God Thing

It's A God Thing

On 4/25 Cheryl Cope wrote: It’s a God Thing is full of stories about miracles, some extraordinary and some seemingly more ordinary, but in reality no less miraculous. One of the goals of the writer(s) of this book was to remind the readers that God’s guidance is all around us every day (from the introduction). I think they ... It's A God Thing by Don Jacobson

The Storm Inside

The Storm Inside

On 4/2 Cheryl Cope wrote: The Storm Inside is all about how to deal with overwhelming emotions so that they do not overtake us. In her many travels and speaking engagements in front of women, Sheila Walsh has found a pattern among the women. We all deal with the same list of strong emotions. They are: heartache, disappointment, ... The Storm Inside by Sheila Walsh

Unquenchable

Unquenchable

On 3/13 Cheryl Cope wrote: This book was not what I expected it to be and I frequently wondered where it was headed. I expected more of a how-to book, based on the subtitle (grow a wildfire faith that will endure anything) and on what was shared on the back cover. There was some how-to, but precious little of it. At least this ... Unquenchable by Carol Kent

The Question That Never Goes Away

The Question That Never Goes Away

On 2/17 Cheryl Cope wrote: Being a sequel to Where Is God When It Hurts?, “The Question” in this book is basically the same one. Or along similar lines, why do bad things happen to good people?, or why does God allow evil to take its awful course?, or how could a good God possibly allow such a calamity? The question never ...

Humility

Humility

On 1/20 Cheryl Cope wrote: Political Science is not my favorite topic and I did not realize that this book is categorized (rightly) under that topic, so please keep that in mind as you read my review. This book is more about national humility, not personal humility, although it explores the personal humility of several leaders ... Humility by David J. Bobb

The Mercy Prayer

The Mercy Prayer

On 11/12 Cheryl Cope wrote: The One Prayer Jesus Always Answers What is the most prayed prayer? “Lord, have mercy.” God is merciful and has great mercy and He seems to delight in answering a request for mercy. This seems to be one point the author is trying to make. This book will challenge your definition of mercy. Here’s ... The Mercy Prayer

Runaway Emotions

Runaway Emotions

On 8/24 Cheryl Cope wrote: Why You Feel the Way You Do and What God Wants You to Do About It One thing that I loved about this book right away is that he considers emotions to be like symptoms, in the same way a doctor would look at symptoms. I have long thought that about feelings myself so this book confirmed that for me. Not ... Runaway Emotions by Jeff Schreve

Persecuted

Persecuted

On 6/19 Cheryl Cope wrote: This book is about the global assault on Christians—up-to-date information on persecution of Christians from around the globe. If you think Christians are not persecuted, not tortured, not imprisoned, not killed for their faith today, in the twenty-first century, you are sadly mistaken. This book ...

Dreams and Visions

Dreams and Visions

On 3/7 Cheryl Cope wrote: Basically this book is about stories of dreams and visions of the person of Jesus as He reveals Himself to Muslims in nine different countries around the world. I had heard about these encounters happening but never saw more than a brief paragraph summary. These stories are in much more detail and I ... Book Review: Dreams and Visions by Tom Doyle

Grace

Grace

On 12/18 Cheryl Cope wrote: Of course this book was written in the author’s usual easy-to-read-and-understand conversational and sometimes humorous writing style. With a topic as important and as serious as grace can be, you might wonder if this worked well together. I can assure you, it worked very well together. This book ...

Fully Alive

Fully Alive

On 10/9 Cheryl Cope wrote: This book gave me mixed emotions in more than one way. Overall, Fully Alive made me both cry and laugh out loud. I appreciate both reactions and felt especially pleased when I reminded myself that, laughter truly is good medicine. Another reason I had mixed emotions was because for quite a while as ...

One Big Thing

One Big Thing

On 9/18 Cheryl Cope wrote: This book is all about discovering what you were born to do and is based on two questions, “What am I supposed to do with my life?”, and, “In a hyper-competitive, cluttered, and distracted world, how do I get noticed?”. I found One Big Thing easy to read, fluid, well-connected and not disjointed ... One Big Thing by Phil Cooke

1,000 Days

1,000 Days

On 7/13 Cheryl Cope wrote: This is a book about the ministry of Christ (which happens to be the subtitle as well)—about those last three years —those last 1000 days of His life here on earth. I loved that there were reflection questions and a Bible study guide included for each chapter—lots of ways to dig deeper if you ... 1000 Days by Jonathan Falwell

Close Enough to Hear God Breathe

Close Enough to Hear God Breathe

On 3/21 Cheryl Cope wrote: Close enough to hear God breathe…and the subtitle is, “The Great Story of Divine Intimacy”… I derive no pleasure from giving a bad review but this book was entirely disappointing. I did not feel it delivered on the title or subtitle. This book is full of stories from the author’s life. They ... Close Enough to Hear God

Your 100 Day Prayer

Your 100 Day Prayer

On 9/23 Cheryl Cope wrote: I loved the premise of this book—that if you will be persistent in your prayer request to God (for 100 days), you will see an answer. To be fair, right from the start, the author allows that God’s answer may be “no”. I did not get the impression that he was teaching us to manipulate God at all. I ... Your 100 Day Prayer by John I.

Thunder Dog

Thunder Dog

On 8/26 Cheryl Cope wrote: This is a true story which is a departure from my usual reading fare. It told the story of how a blind man and his guide dog escaped safely from the twin towers on 9/11. The parts of the story where he told about the escape were especially interesting. I was expecting a little more heroism from the ... Thunder Dog

Doing Virtuous Business

On 7/7 Cheryl Cope wrote: This book is about how to run a business in a virtuous manner.

The Sacred Meal

The Sacred Meal

On 4/29 Cheryl Cope wrote: Annoying. This book was one of the most annoying books to read that I’ve ever read. I had great trouble even finishing it. I thought it was going to be about the practice of taking communion. Instead it was bits and pieces of the author’s life strung together with the occasional story having something ...

The Principle of the Path

The Principle of the Path

On 4/29 Cheryl Cope wrote: I’m not sure why but I had very high expectations for this book. Too high, it turned out. The story at the beginning showcased Andy Stanley’s superb storytelling ability and drew me in. That part was great. Do not skip the introduction. At about one-third to one-half-way through I started getting ... The Principle of the Path by Andy Stanley
