Those who know your name trust in you, for you, O Lord, do not abandon those who search for you.

This Book was supplied to me by Simon & Schuster Publishers through NetGalley for a review in return.
Five years ago, Molly Allen left her heart in Tennessee when she walked away from the man she can't forget. Ryan Kelly spends much of his time in Franklin's bookstore, remembering the hours he and Molly once spent there. But when tragedy and trouble threaten to close the shop for good, what miracles will unfold?
This book is a stand alone book by a GREAT author, Karen Kingsbury. She is one of the best authors, in my opinion. I have read almost all of her books and I just can’t say enough. This book is not a long book but it is so GREAT that I wished it went on and on. Karen draws you into all her books as soon as you start reading the book. This book is about second chances in life. God does give us second chances, I do believe that.
This is about Molly and Ryan. They are college students and always wind up at The Bridge bookstore and read to each other. There is just something about The Bridge and when Charlie, the owner of the bookstore has a terrible accident and almost dies, all of the people who he has known throughout his career shows up so he can open up the shop again. Then, as the story goes on, Ryan and Molly see each other after 7 years.
I had better not tell you anything more about the book because I don’t want to spoil it for you. I love Karen Kingsbury’s books because she always show how the characters intertwine and how they accept Jesus as their personal savior.
Thank you Simon & Schuster Publishers for giving me a chance to read and review this WONDERFUL book. Thank you, Karen Kingsbury for giving us all a good book to read and thank you Jesus for giving us all such a GREAT author in Karen.

This Book was supplied to me by B&H Publishers through NetGalley for a review in return.
Life on the Mississippi in the 1850s is filled with dreams---and disappointments! In The River Rose, widow Jeanne Bettencourt struggles to provide for her young daughter. Things begin to look up when she unexpectedly inherits a steamboat. But there's another claim on the estate! Can faith help Jeanne navigate the swirling waters of her feelings?
This book is the first book of Gilbert Morris that I have read and I guarantee you, it will not be the last one either. He absolutely wraps you into this book from the first page.
This book was so good. I know that it is suppose to be all about Jeanne Bettencourt but her daughter who is about 5 or 6 years old, grabbed my heart strings. What a precious little girl, I just fell in love with her.
This story tells the story of Jeanne Bettencourt and how she tries to make a living for her and her daughter, Marvel. They live in a rundown housing district and she is a maid who works at the Gayoso Hotel. Then she is confronted by the lawyer and learns that she and Clint Hardin inherit the River Boat, she owns half and he owns the other half. She is a good Christian woman and doesn’t know about living on the boat with a man but she decides that her and Marvel will live in a cabin.
As the story goes on, Jeanne is dating a man who stays at the hotel she use to work at and Clint starts to fall for her. He has to hold his feelings in but eventually things change. This is a GREAT book, one that I would suggest to my family and friends. I loved this book so much and that little Marvel was wonderful, a very special child in my opinion. If I was you, I would most definitely pickup this book.
I had better not tell you anything more about the book because I don’t want to spoil it for you. I think that Gilbert Morris is a GREAT author and one that everyone should read.
Thank you B&H Publishers for giving me a chance to read and review this WONDERFUL book. Thank you, Gilbert Morris for giving us all a good book to read and learn how Jesus moves. And oh my goodness, how he does move because that is what he wants is to have a relationship with him.

I thought this looked really good.
We like the diversity of this one-dish winner. First, because Braised Chicken Thighs Dinner is a change from roast. Second, because it uses chicken thighs. They have so much more flavor than breasts.
Cooking Time:7 hr
- 1 onion, halved lengthwise and sliced
- 4 new potatoes (about 1 pound), cut into 1/4-inch slices
- 2 cups baby carrots
- 1 1/4 teaspoons salt, divided
- 1/2 teaspoon black pepper, divided
- 1/4 cup chicken broth
- 1/4 cup dry white wine (See Note)
- 1 teaspoon minced garlic
- 1/2 teaspoon dried thyme
- 1 teaspoon paprika
- 6 bone-in, skinned chicken thighs (1-1/2 to 1-3/4 pounds)
- Coat a 6-quart round slow cooker with cooking spray. Add onion then top with potatoes and carrots.
- In a medium bowl, combine 3/4 teaspoon salt, 1/4 teaspoon pepper, the broth, wine, garlic, and thyme. Pour broth mixture over vegetables. Combine paprika, remaining salt, and remaining pepper; rub evenly over chicken thighs, and arrange over vegetables.
- Cover and cook on HIGH setting 1 hour; reduce heat to LOW setting, and cook 6 hours, or until chicken and vegetables are cooked through and tender.
- Feel free to substitute an extra 1/4 cup chicken broth in place of the wine, if you prefer.

This Book was supplied to me by Harvest House Publishers for a review in return.
Author Cindi McMenamin's bestseller When Women Walk Alone (more than 100,000 copies sold) confirms her gift for encouraging women who are journeying through difficult seasons. In her newest book, she offers help for women who are dealing with wounds from unresolved issues in their past.
When a Woman Overcomes Life's Hurts explores the kinds of hurt women experience and offers gracious, biblical counsel on how and where to find healing. Cindi shares the faulty thinking that often accompanies life's wounds and replaces it with truths every woman needs to know about how God views her. She takes women from
This book is the first book of Cindi McMenamin that I have read and I guarantee you, it will not be the last one either. Cindi is very good author telling her stories about several different women.
She explains what the women go through and how God is there to help them. There are some that question God’s existence and I know beyond a shadow of a doubt he is there for you in time of trouble. Our God is an AWESOME God. I love you Jesus. Cindi is a great author on this type of subject. I was just thinking after I read her book that some churches could use this book for women who are hurting at church. Just a thought. Hmmmm.
I work with some women who are going through some rough things, such as divorce, contemplating divorce, etc. I do believe I am going to pass this book along to them.
Thank you Harvest House Publishers for giving me a chance to read and review this WONDERFUL book. Thank you, Cindi McMenamin for giving us all a good book to read and learn how Jesus works and how much he loves us. I just have to say this one thing, “Jesus does not move, we do”. Just a thought.
