On 2/18 JC Morrows wrote: Pretty sure I am not the right person to read and review this book… I mean, it reads well. The devotions are well written. And everything sounds good to me, but given my past… my life… my complete and utter lack of anything that could be remotely deemed success in the are of relationships or marriage, ...

Defiant Joy

Defiant Joy

On 1/25 JC Morrows wrote: "We are called to live. And, miraculously, to live with joy." Those are words written with the intention of changing lives! "Why defiant joy? Why not… simply joy? … In this world where we find ourselves living, having joy often feels both crazy and out of reach.” Those words say it all. This ...

The Year of Happy Living

The Year of Happy Living

On 11/30 JC Morrows wrote: A Year of Thankfulness is something we can all use. There is no way to ever truly thank our dear Lord enough for all that He has done for us, but it never hurts to try… and try… and try. And thankfulness in every day life is an excellent place to start. I highly recommend this book. It’s filled ... What I’m Reading: The Year of Happy Living

The Case for Christ Daily Moment of Truth

The Case for Christ Daily Moment of Truth

On 11/30 JC Morrows wrote: This book was nothing like I expected… in the best possible way. Watching the movie that is based on Lee Strobel’s miraculous discovery of faith gives you a very in-depth look at his journey, which was not entirely a good one. Fortunately, this book was written after Lee found God’s love, so ... What I’m Reading: The Case for Christ Daily Moment of Truth

365 Devotions for a Thankful Heart

On 10/4 JC Morrows wrote: Daily devotionals are a wonderful tool for Christians who are surrounded by the crazy, mixed-up, confusing world we live in. Thankfulness is also a wonderful tool. Too many of us forget to be thankful for all that God has blessed us with (I am no exception) and that can make for a somewhat difficult ... What I’m Reading: 365 Devotions for a Thankful Heart

100 Days of Thanks

On 8/16 JC Morrows wrote: I've never been a fan of adult coloring books and I've been hesitant to embrace the Bible journaling trend, but looking through this book, I must admit there is merit to having a creative way to take notes while studying God's word.

On 8/16 JC Morrows wrote: For someone who much prefers paper or hardbound books, I feel it shows just how wonderful this book is, that I was able to enjoy it as an eBook.

God's Blessings Day By Day

On 8/10 JC Morrows wrote: This book is an absolute GEM! The devotionals are written in such a way that very young children could easily understand the message within, but not so childishly that an older child would not enjoy it. For example, my 12 years old daughter loves it. Even though we just received it, she has already ... What I’m Reading: God’s Blessing Day by Day: a Daily Devotional for Kids

Am I Enough?

On 8/5 JC Morrows wrote: The first thing that comes to mind when I think about this book, is that it could have been so much more. The author had an opportunity to present positive ideas and affirmation and yet, the majority of the book reads as judgement. Don’t get me wrong… The writing is humorous. The stories are well ...
