Rule of Law – Randy Singer

Rule of Law


Rule of Law is a new release by Randy Singer.  It takes a behind the scenes look at international events questioning if our country’s leaders are acting outside the rule of law.  I am not traditionally a reader of this genre, but I was hooked within paragraphs of starting to read this suspenseful, adventure thriller.  Singer has created a novel that takes the reader on a thrill ride of twists and turns.  I highly recommend coming along for the ride and reading Rule of Law.

While this complimentary book was provided for review by LitFuse Publicity Group, no other compensation was given.  All remarks are my personal and honest opinions.

Some Kind of Courage – Dan Gemeinhart

Some Kind of Courage


Our daughter found the display for the 2017-2018 Bluebonnet Award nominees at the library and has been faithfully reading through them.  Some Kind of Courage has been one of her favorites.  It is a historical fiction book that will literally have you at the edge of your seat as you read it.  Some Kind of Courage is beautifully written and highlights the importance of strength, determination, and character.

Raising Dragons (Dragons in Our Midst, Book 1) – Bryan Davis

Raising Dragons (Dragons in Our Midst, Book 1)


I came across the Dragons in Our Midst series and knew that these would be a hit with our daughter who loves reading fantasy books.  This series focuses on the struggle of good vs. evil but unlike most fantasy books, it is written from a Christian perspective.  Filled with action and excitement, the Dragons in Our Midst Series is a winner!

Resilience: Hard-Won Wisdom for Living a Better Life – Eric Greitens

Resilience: Hard-Won Wisdom for Living a Better Life


I recently saw Eric Greitens featured on a news program.  I was intrigued by the path he had taken in life.  He is a Rhodes Scholar and humanitarian leader who decided to join the Navy and become a SEAL.  After serving in Afghanistan and Iraq, he came home and founded a non-profit (The Mission Continues) that helps veterans get back on their feet by giving back to their communities.  Most recently, he was elected the Governor of Missouri.  This diverse resume allows Greitens to write a book others could not. Resilence is a philosophically deep read that will have you grabbing for a pencil to make notes in the margin.

The Vanishing American Adult: Our Coming-of-Age Crisis and How to Rebuild a Culture of Self-Reliance – Ben Sasse

The Vanishing American Adult: Our Coming-of-Age Crisis–and How to Rebuild a Culture of Self-Reliance


After hearing positive reports about this book from a number of people whose beliefs span the gamut of political ideologies, my interest was peaked, and I decided to check it out for myself.  Ben Sasse has written a timely book about our country and the challenges we face as a society.  He explores each topic using an issues based approach rather than a policy based approach, and he focuses on forward thinking solutions. The Vanishing American Adult: Our Coming-of-Age Crisis and How to Rebuild a Culture of Self-Reliance is a thought provoking book that every parent should read.

Get Out of That Pit: Straight Talk About God’s Deliverance – Beth Moore

Get Out of That Pit: Straight Talk about God’s Deliverance


Get Out of That Pit, which is based on Psalm 40, has been re-released as a tenth anniversary edition.  Moore has written a highly engaging text that provides a strong scriptural foundation for positive change.  Whether the struggle one is facing is big or small, Get Out of That Pit is an encouraging read that supports taking action.

Favorite First Day of School Book!

The Kissing Hand (The Kissing Hand Series)


This post is a flash from the past.  It was originally published in 2011.

The Kissing Hand is an old favorite to read at the start of the school year.  Little Chester Raccoon is hesitant to leave his mother’s side and go to school.  She assures him that he will love school once he is busy playing with new toys, new books, and new friends.  She also shares a special secret that has been in their family for years – the kissing hand.  The kissing hand allows a little love from home to be with Chester at all times and gives him the confidence he needs to tackle his first day of school.  Quite simply a heartwarming story that provides true comfort to little ones and perhaps a few Mommies and Daddies too
