Reviews by Heather Conrad
On 9/17 Heather Conrad wrote: This story is about a boy and a river. Simple concept, beautifully crafted. Gabriel Clarke is his name, and he’s mysteriously drawn to The River, but something holds him back. Chains of both fear and resentment imprison him, keeping him from discovering the treasure to be found there. He remains ... Adventurously good!
On 1/27 Heather Conrad wrote: (Reviewed by my Husband, Aaron) About a year ago I was in Nashville for the Country Music Half Marathon. We arrived a day early so we stopped by Thomas Nelson Publishing to see some dear friends that work there. Through the course of our conversation, my friend Dave said “Have you ever heard of I Am Second“. I raised my ... I Am Second – Review
On 4/19 Heather Conrad wrote: If there’s one thing I’ve observed about being a Mom of two little girls, somewhere in their hearts is a desire to be a princess. They dress the part, they play the part, they live the part. In How To Be God’s Little Princess, Sheila Walsh compiles practical suggestions and discussions on princess-worthy ... Book Review
On 2/22 Heather Conrad wrote: Prayer. Always a great topic to delve into. Many books look at prayer in the how-to, or more-is-better department, this one is slightly different. The author SQuire Rushnell, and his wife, entertainer and talk-show host Louise DuArt, write from a place of experience. They take time to really dive into the experiences of others and ... Book Review
On 2/1 Heather Conrad wrote: A promise. Perhaps this word initiates a response of scoffing. Why? We, as humans, break promises frequently. It’s human nature to want a sure thing and for someone to back up the certainties, guarantees, no questions asked, unfortunately, we can’t always count on it from one another. ... Book Review
On 1/5 Heather Conrad wrote: Billy Graham. Need I say more? In his forward, Mr. Graham mentions that he has compiled some thoughts from more than 50 years as a minister of the Gospel of Jesus Christ. 50 YEARS!! That’s tenacity, that’s endurance, can you imagine the wisdom? As one who has lived in the mountains of North Carolina for ... Book Review
On 12/16 Heather Conrad wrote: I am typing this as a “guest post” for my lovely bride. She was kind enough to let me use her Booksneeze available book order to get a copy of The Lucado Life Lessons Study Bible. If you didn’t already know, I’m a pretty huge fan of Max. He’s one of my literary heroes and ... Book Review
On 11/6 Heather Conrad wrote: Grace. An extremely difficult topic to put to words. Andy Stanley delves into it beautifully, masterfully, biblically. He states, Grace. It’s what we crave most when our guilt is exposed. It’s the very thing we are hesitant to extend when we are confronted with the guilt of others – especially ... Superb!

The marriage is strained due to the father's focus on work. While his son goes missing, and the community starts to gets involved in helping to search over 32 acres, he comes face ... Not my favorite
On 9/9 Heather Conrad wrote: Once again, the amazing people at Thomas Nelson have provided an opportunity for readers to catch a glimpse of the true meaning of kindness and giving, through the story of a little boy. Every so often, I believe it's so important to read a children's book. This author, Andy Andrews, an extremely talented ... The ripple effect
On 8/1 Heather Conrad wrote: Prophecy can be an odd thing. I'm not sure what it is about it that captivates me, but based on the number of books and popularity of the topic, I am guessing I am not alone. It's a terrible analogy, but it's almost like the whole LeBron James decision. We want to know what we don't know. We seek answers ... What's Going On?
On 7/3 Heather Conrad wrote: Thanks to Booksneeze, another amazing book has graced our home through the wonderful, yet sometimes overlooked, mail delivery service. Max Lucado, enough said. This smaller-sized, beautiful hardback book would make a great gift for anyone, yet especially for a graduate. It contains short (2-3 page) ... Fantastic!
On 5/18 Heather Conrad wrote: Here we are again, anther great book to share about! As the mailman graced the door just before our trip this past weekend, God's timing could not have been more perfect. You see, my little girl just turned seven on Saturday - 7!!! I always heard about time flying in reference to children, but now ... Book Review
On 5/7 Heather Conrad wrote: Ahhhh, the neediness factor. In my humble experience, we run the gamut with this one. Just as my pendulum clock swings back and forth several times a minute, perhaps we find ourselves somewhere between fierce independence and protection, and a sheer thrown down in exhaustion of our desire to be filled ... Is it okay to be needy?
On 3/24 Heather Conrad wrote: There is that saying - don't judge a book by it's cover - however, this cover couldn't display a better visual concept for this delightful book, or beautifully depict the "flavor" of this author any better. Known for her involvement as a Women of Faith speaker, Pasty Clairmont gives us a whimsical look ... Book Report
On 2/9 Heather Conrad wrote: Thanks to the kind and gracious hard-working-hearts at Thomas Nelson Publishers, I was able to curl up with my daughter - a warm welcome after playing hard in the snow for over 2 hours - and delight together reading this precious new storybook (lovingly delivered by our faithful mail carrier Pam today.)Country ...

On 2/3 Heather Conrad wrote: It's that time again...Book report, I mean book "review".Let me just tell you how humbling it is to put worth a few words, an opinion, in regards to not only the inspiration of God through an author, but to pitifully offer my view on the living word of God himself. So instead of thinking on the later, ... Mom's Bible
