NIV Faithgirlz Bible

NIV Faithgirlz Bible

On 8/2 Nancy Alstrom wrote: This Bible is absolutely awesome! I was so excited when I saw this and showed it to my 12 year old daughter. The magnetic closure and hardback covers are perfect for any tween. I would suggest this Bible for ages 10-12 and they don't even have to be super girly! This Bible really is both girly and not ... Totally worth purchasing!

Both of Me

On 2/6 Nancy Alstrom wrote: I actually thought this book was just okay. My niece is 12 and was looking to read this book and I think that after reading it, she may enjoy it. You never know what information will be in there even when it's from a Christian based publisher. As an adult who read this, I'm not sure I would have chose ... Both of Me--A book Review

The Nesting Place

The Nesting Place

On 1/7 Nancy Alstrom wrote: I really enjoyed reading this book. I think the one thing that I loved about The Nesting Place, is how she taught you how to decorate with what you already have. She is just a normal woman that doesn’t know how to decorate, but knows how to make it work. I looked forward to all the pictures in each ... Easy read, worth the time!

God's Beloved Daughters

On 10/1 Nancy Alstrom wrote: I really enjoyed reading this book. It was really neat how the author gave her testimony and other stories throughout the book. The day that really struck home was Aug. 2nd A New Creature. So many times we look back on where we’ve been and don’t focus on how far we’ve come because of Christ. They ...

The Butterfly and the Violin

On 7/21 Nancy Alstrom wrote: I was so impressed how Kristy kept me wanting to read the next chapters. At first I was a little hesitant about the confusion of intertwining two separate stories, but the way they were written I began pushing myself to read more just so I could get back to the continuation of their story. You have the ... Must Read, get lost in the story!

Arms Open Wide

On 7/11 Nancy Alstrom wrote: The book itself is really nice. It is a hardback smooth with padding. It is a really nicely presented book that would make a really nice gift for someone who would enjoy the 34 different short Bible stories that were presented.
