The Holman HCSB Study Bible for Women, Teal/Sage LeatherTouch by B&H Publishing Group

Okay ladies, if you are searching for a new study Bible this is my pick for my favorite Bible for women. Holman study Bibles are the best of the best. There is nothing that compares. I have study Bibles in HCSB and NKJV translation, but this Bible is special. It's created for women. 

It isn't exactly like a Holman HCSB Study Bible. This Study Bible gives us a guide to the women of the Bible. This is the first Bible I turn to when I'm studying and for my daily reading. 

First let me say the inside of this Bible is gorgeous!! Take a peek at the B&H Publishing Group for a look at the inside pages. It is a creamy/teal color all throughout the Bible. One of my favorite aspects is the word study. This is huge in studying the Word of God. The word studies give information on the Hebrew/Greek/Aramaic translations so that it's easy for us to comprehend. 

Another favorite of mine are the character profiles. This too is another amazing tool in studying the Word. When we know the backgrounds and personalities of those we are reading about it gives us a greater insight in understanding and we are able to relate to them even more so. 

There are amazing outlines and the introductions to the Books of the Bible are outstanding. 

I LOVE the Doctrine studies. You can find these all throughout the Bible. They are helpful in allowing us to have a greater understanding of the foundational beliefs of Christianity. 

There are hard questions throughout the Bible along with answers. These are questions that often stump us in our walk. We need to know and understand why we believe what we believe and these hard questions guides us to scripture and a greater understanding of how to answer others when the world asks us questions that we ourselves often ponder. "Can we be certain that there is an afterlife? What about reincarnation or nirvana, for example? Are we responsible for confessing another's sin? How could a just God command His people to destroy a nation? Why are we not to consult fortune-tellers? How can I trust a God who has allowed such terrible things to happen to people? And many many more questions. 

There too are essays on Biblical Womanhood. These include topics on Spiritual Motherhood, The Ministry of Hospitality, Marriage, The Judgement on the Woman, and many more. This Bible is jam-packed with great tools!

The concordance is outstanding and there are Bullet Notes for understanding the definition for words that we often pass over. 

There are a ton of features to this Bible. The charts, maps, and reconstructions are outstanding!! 

If you are searching for a Women's Study Bible this is the best! There are many colors to choose from. I have the chocolate genuine leather indexed and that is my favorite Bible. It is truly spectacular. So now all you have to do is pick out the color perfect for you. Really, this is one of those Bibles that you just love spending time in and one you would love to share. 

This women's study Bible was a gift from B&H Publishing Group for sharing my review with you.

The One True Love of Alice-Ann by Eva Marie Everson

Oh, just where do I begin? This is the stuff in which great novels are made. I made my way through this richly beautiful novel turning page after page with such deep emotion and thought. I couldn't turn the pages quick enough, but I didn't want it to end to soon. It's one of those novels you could continue reading as long as there were pages. No page just made of fluff, words with no meaning on the page. Every single line in this novel created a story that will last in my heart forever. 
Ms. Everson, I am so happy stories of the war were shared with you. Oh, to have your Sunday school teacher share with you, "You can't choose who you fall in love with, but you can choose who you marry", is a blessing that has now enchanted your readers. What a story you have weaved together. History penned with such depth, detail, and a story that captures the heart. 
This lovely story begins in 1941. The war has started. Picture a family gathered around the Zenith to hear t…

Unexpected Blessings

The last words my dad spoke to me from his hospital bed were, "Rob, take care of your mom." Those are words I have never forgotten. I have not only honored them for my dad, but for my mom. I too am commanded by my Father to honor my mother and father.
"Honor your father and mother so that you may have a long life in the land that the Lord your God is giving you." Exodus 20:12
My mom gave her life in caring for me. On my first birthday, my very first Christmas, was spent in the ICU as I was very sick with pneumonia. A little later I would burn myself with spilled coffee. A few years later I would tumble down many stairs and once again spent time in the hospital. 
I remember all the times I was sick and could feel my mom's hand brush against my forehead as she checked for fever. All the times she must have stayed up all night as I was sick. 
When I was little she would pour me a bowl of Raisin Bran. I loved it. Only I didn't like the raisins. She would take t…

The Glassblower by Petra Durst-Benning

I came across this selection on Amazon. I had seen so many reviews that it intrigued me. I had never read anything from this German author. The cover caught my attention as did the description of this novel. 
It's a part of a trilogy. I am getting ready to open up book 2, The American Lady. I cannot wait to begin. I tell you this book marveled me. I wasn't quite sure what to expect. What a journey into another time and place. 
We travel to Germany where this novel is set. The year is 1890 and we find ourselves in Lauscha, Germany. The author did a fantastic job at the perfect description of not only the area, but circumstance, and heart of the characters. Her writing style flows so easily that the pages almost turn themselves. 
The characters are easy to love. Three sisters who are now wondering, after their father had passed from this earth,  how they will now provide for themselves. It isn't going to be easy, but these sisters show us how to prevail over challenges that…

Healing Of The Heart (book 3 in the series Secrets on Sterling Street) by Loree Lough

I admire Loree so very much. Love when an author gives a dedication for the novel they poured their heart into. Loree's dedication to her granddaughter touched my heart in a powerful way. Such a love-bond between grandmother and granddaughter. Words for us all to ponder and live in example. 
Currency of the Heart began this series. It was followed by Guardians of the Heart. You can peek at my reviews on both of these gems. I loved the first. After reading the second I was sure it would be my favorite. Then here came the last of the series. Wow! It is difficult to pick a favorite when the pen is in the hand of Loree, but book 3 is my absolute fave of this series! 
Now, why would I pick this novel for my fave? There isn't a character in this novel that doesn't leave a heart-message for one to ponder. That's powerful stuff right there. 
Okay, so you can know the gist of the story by reading the description. I won't do that for you and I won't give away any secrets…

Of Stillness and Storm by Michele Phoenix

This is my first novel read by Michele Phoenix. I love the premise of this novel and all that she opened my eyes to. We always hear of the 'calling' by missionaries. We want to go where God calls us. We want to make a difference. 
To be called by God isn't the same for every soul. We all fit differently into His plan. Our walk with Him isn't ALL we do for His name, but our relationship with Him, our intimate journey with our Savior. 
This novel is raw and transparent. For me, it was the journey of Lauren. We see that her husband feels called to work in Nepal and with the people, but we really don't read about much of his personal journey. 
Their son, Ryan, is struggling. We can see through the conversations he has with his parents that he is truly unhappy. We see the fall, but we don't really get a close glimpse into his heart. 
It is with Lauren that we journey. She feels alone and lost. Through her words we can 'feel' the pain in her heart. She is br…
