On 8/2 Jennifer Lambert wrote: Intelligent but approachable, this book regales well-known Biblical stories and deconstructs them for today's doubting audiences. We don't have to dismiss the hard topics. We can embrace them in all their complexity. God can handle our doubt and questions. I remember my discomfort about some of the ...

On 2/27 Jennifer Lambert wrote: I could barely get through this book. I didn't learn anything. It didn't save my marriage. It didn't teach me how to better communicate. It insulted my intelligence. I didn't like the book format of a fictional married couple in counseling. They were flat unlikeable characters. I couldn't relate to ... It's all been said before.
On 2/27 Jennifer Lambert wrote: This book was quite interesting to me. I agree that many people, even Christians can't handle laments. Most of us are silenced and reduced to "faking fine." No one really wants to know anything about the negative. But everyone seems to be a counselor and offers advice that's unwanted and unneeded. I ... We're not all "just fine."
On 11/3 Jennifer Lambert wrote: The Wedding Shop by Rachel Hauck is a mysterious historical story within a story. I love historical fiction. Sometimes, I do want a sappy love story to just lose myself in. This novel has two – a modern one and a flashback to an earlier time, during the Great Depression. And wouldn’t you know it ... The Wedding Shop Book Review
On 12/11 Jennifer Lambert wrote: I knew my girls would be super excited to try out the fun and feminine hairstyles in this easy-to-read book. My teen practiced braiding on her sister's hair.

On 1/5 Jennifer Lambert wrote: I just love Tracy Higley. I love her books too. I was excited to read and review her re-release of Isle of Shadows (formerly Shadow of Colossus). Get the first three chapters and more! The main character, Tessa, is very likeable and believable. I immediately saw her as a heroine and wanted her to succeed ... Isle of Shadows Review
On 1/4 Jennifer Lambert wrote: I couldn’t put this book down. I struggled to even see the words through my tears. Sarah Mae understands. She knows. I went through my struggles alone when I first had my girls, beaten down by the enemy and awash in grief that I could barely cope with my life. Oh, if I’d had this book then. Or a ...

On 10/5 Jennifer Lambert wrote: I was absolutely fascinated by this book! Obviously, I love historical fiction, and I’ve read books by Joan Wolf before. This novel had me bookmarking all over the place. Wonderful phrases and statements about women’s hearts. One conversation the main characters had about Rachel really got me thinking: ... Rahab was Important
On 5/1 Jennifer Lambert wrote: I just read The Jesus We Missed by Patrick Henry Reardon. It is quite remarkable to think about Jesus as a man and having human weaknesses. Reardon very intelligently describes Jesus as the sinless son of God while growing in knowledge about his own divinity. He backs up all his claims with scripture. ... Humanity of Jesus
On 6/3 Jennifer Lambert wrote: Well, let me begin by saying that I love the story of Esther. Isn’t it just a lovely fairy tale? This novel is no different. It was a quick read and it was delightful. I really felt sympathy for the characters and could not put the book (or mouse, since I downloaded it on my Kindle for PC) down. I ... More Bible!

He encourages us to dedicate our lives to being barbarians with our faith rather than complacent in conventional Christian religion. Appropriately, quotes and scene synopses from the movie Braveheart are ... Not of this world
