On 10/2 Amber Goodman wrote:  Broken is something that no one wants. Not for your life, your family, or your children. Unfortunately, its an inevitable part of every one's life. No matter how hard you try and what fool proof formulas you attempt, the perfect life is an illusion. Bringing hope, this well-written book points ...

Notes From The Tilt-A-Whirl

Notes From The Tilt-A-Whirl

On 9/18 Amber Goodman wrote: N. D. Wilson does it again in this thought provoking book about life. While its not an easy book to follow, (there will be much rereading of paragraphs) there are some eye opening truths contained inside. This is not a book for those who believe that life is about being comfortable, finding your place ... Book Review: Notes from the Tilt-a-Whirl by N. D. Wilson

Death By Living

Death By Living

On 9/10 Amber Goodman wrote: In N. D. Wilson, I have found a new favorite author. At once sharing the ordinary details of his life, that have matching ones in our own, while at the same time weaving a story so poignant and beautiful to bring tears to your eyes. He uses stories from his own heritage and beckons the reader to reach ... Book Review: Death by Living by N. D. Wilson

All In

All In

On 7/18 Amber Goodman wrote: The Gospel cost NOTHING, but it demands EVERYTHING. It's all or nothing. If Jesus is not LORD OF ALL, then He is not Lord at all.Mark Batterson is definitely one of my all time favorite authors. His writing challenges me to push for more, to not settle for what I'm already doing. His books always seem ... Book Review: All In by Mark Batterson

Accidental Pharisees

Accidental Pharisees

On 5/23 Amber Goodman wrote: If I were to describe my church leadership by saying they were Pharisees, you probably would never want to make my church your home. However, the group we associate with legalism and works based religion actually started out right. Over time, their zealous faith became the driving force in their pursuit ...

gods at war

gods at war

On 5/5 Amber Goodman wrote: Man was created to bow. That is the central statement and this book pulls no punches. I, like many of you, thought I was safe. I mean, surely I’m not an idolator. That’s the stuff of the Old Testament. Or my unsaved neighbors, or that weird church in another city, or maybe that tribe in the Amazon. ... Gods at War by Kyle Idelman

Unexpected Love

Unexpected Love

On 3/26 Amber Goodman wrote: The Bible can be a difficult book to decipher anyway, but in regards to women there are so many stories that just don't make any sense. The tendency then is to either gloss over those difficult passages or take them out of context. Christian women are left with their questions unanswered.  ...

BATHSHEBA Bathed in Grace

On 2/20 Amber Goodman wrote: Do you ever wonder how God could ever use you when you have so many flaws and have so many imperfections? I know that I do. This book details the stories of eight women who were truly scandalous by ancient and modern definition. The reader witnesses the events unfold for Bathsheba, Sarah, Hagar, Rebekah, ...
