It's Not About Me

It's Not About Me

On 6/25 Apple Jones wrote: Pop culture and psychobabble tell us to make ourselves the center of the universe in order to be happy. Churches have communicated the false idea that God exists to give us all that we selfishly want. In this book, Max Lucado reminds us that it’s not about us, it’s all about God. It is through ...

The Waiting Place

The Waiting Place

On 6/24 Apple Jones wrote: We all spend precious time just waiting. We wait in traffic, grocery store lines, and carpool circles. We wait to grow up, for true love, and for our children to be born. We even wait to die. But amazing things can happen if we open our eyes in The Waiting Place and peer into its dusty corners. Sometimes ... Review – The Waiting Place by Eileen Button

The Skin Map (Trade Paper)

The Skin Map (Trade Paper)

On 5/13 Apple Jones wrote: The Skin Map was the first book I’ve ever read by Mr. Lawhead. After my last experience with science fiction/fantasy (that also included a form of time travel), I didn’t have a very high expectation as I started to read. This book surprised me! Not only did it hold my attention, but I loved ... Review – The Skin Map by Stephen R. Lawhead

Tithing

Tithing

On 5/6 Apple Jones wrote: It wasn’t until I’d completed reading this book that I really understood my deep dislike for it. Now, I completely agree with tithing. It’s biblical and those who would argue against it ought to give their heads a shake and realize that everything we work for in life can be taken away ... Review – Tithing by Douglas Leblanc

Curiosities of the Civil War

Curiosities of the Civil War

On 5/1 Apple Jones wrote: Instead of offering another look at the most significant military and political events, Curiosities of the Civil War focuses on relatively unknown and obscure aspects of the war. It is estimated that 623,000 soldiers died during the Civil War. If the June 1865 surrender of Kirby-Smiths forces is taken ... Review – Curiosities of the Civil War by Webb Garrison

Girl Talk With God

Girl Talk With God

On 2/2 Apple Jones wrote: Conversations between God and a teenage girl inspire, teach, and motivate young women to pray and live a dynamic life for God. Most Christian teens don’t know how to pray. And when they do pray, they don’t know how to discern God’s voice. In Girl Talk With God, author Susie Shellenberger ... Review – Girl Talk With God by Susie Shellenberger
