KJV, Journal The Word Bible, Large Print, Hardcover, Black, Red Letter Edition

On 12/16 Karen duBarry wrote: Unless you’ve been living under a rock (and maybe even if you are…) if you read any Christian living blogs at all, Bible Journaling is not a new concept for you. I suspect this grew out of the scrapbooking craze (that craft trend has faded a bit in recent years). Some people get really creative with ... KJV Journal the Word Bible

Uninvited

Uninvited

On 9/10 Karen duBarry wrote: Maybe it’s my personality or maybe it’s just the season of life that I’m in now (probably a combination of both) but titles like Lysa TerKeurst’s Uninvited really jump out at me these days. I thought this book might be a good companion to Better Together by Jill Savage and Anne McClane. That ... Uninvited by Lysa TerKeurst

Give Your Child the World

Give Your Child the World

On 7/18 Karen duBarry wrote: What you’ll find in Give Your Child the World: The first section is part memoir, part practical advice for “raising globally minded kids”. The Martin family is diverse and their experiences are varied. This book isn’t about a surface only “Multiculturalism”. It’s about truly appreciating ... Give Your Child the World by Jamie Martin

The Entitlement Cure

The Entitlement Cure

On 11/20 Karen duBarry wrote: I’m guessing anyone who is intrigued by the title “The Entitlement Cure” has someone in mind who meets their definition of entitled. In our current culture it’s impossible to go a full week without running into someone who fits the description or, at the very least, it’s impossible to avoid ... The Entitlement Cure

The Colson Way: Loving Your Neighbor and Living with Faith in a Hostile World

The Colson Way: Loving Your Neighbor and Living with Faith in a Hostile World

On 9/4 Karen duBarry wrote: The Colson Way by Owen Strachan isn’t exactly a biography of Chuck Colson (there are other, more comprehensive titles that would fit this description). It isn’t exactly a “how-to” for today’s Christians. It isn’t exactly a theology book. Somehow Strachan has taken three distinct types of ... The Colson Way by Owen Strachan

Savor

Savor

On 5/14 Karen duBarry wrote: This may sound unusual, but I haven't actually read any of Shauna Niequist's other books. I've seen bloggers and book reviewers I know and respect recommend her work, but I just hadn't gotten around to reading any of it yet. So, when the chance came along to review her new devotional, I decided to go ... Book Review: Savor by Shauna Niequist

Make it Happen

Make it Happen

On 2/4 Karen duBarry wrote: The year to make what, exactly, happen? Well, I don't know. The "what" is whatever dream God has inspired you to dream. Lara Casey has written a truly inspiring book to help those who are ready to stop believing in "someday" and start pursuing. Whether you've put things off based on perfectionism ("I ... 2015 is the Year to Make it Happen (with Lara Casey's help)

Small Talk

Small Talk

On 12/2 Karen duBarry wrote: Small Talk is one of those books about life that any Christian mom will immediately recognize. Amy Julia Becker is a real mom, raising three real children, and learning real lessons. Small Talk is like a friendly discussion between friends, or a long letter from a far away mom living a similar life. ... Book Review: Small Talk

Fierce Convictions

Fierce Convictions

On 11/17 Karen duBarry wrote: Biography book reviews can be difficult because it is hard to separate what you feel about the subject from how you feel about the biography itself. In Fierce Convictions, Karen Swallow Prior has done a great service: reintroducing the nearly forgotten English abolitionist Hannah More to a contemporary ... Book Review: Fierce Convictions

52 Little Lessons from Les Miserables

52 Little Lessons from Les Miserables

On 10/1 Karen duBarry wrote: Les Miserables is a classic for a reason. Bob Welch has designed a lovely little book to supplement this iconic story, whether you love the unabridged book, the movies, or the musical. Unlike the source material, the sections are not long. You could read the entire book in just a few days, or you could ... 52 Little Lessons from Les Miserables by Bob Welch

Move On

Move On

On 9/11 Karen duBarry wrote: Vicki Courtney's book is not about being "true to yourself". It's about being true to God and His purpose in creating you. (p. 14) When I read that line, I knew I wanted to keep reading this book. There are enough books out there spouting false wisdom about following your own heart. I particularly appreciated ...
