Review

This was a good devotional. The author covers a lot of important topics that face women. Each day the author shares a scripture passage, along with thoughts and personal stories relating back to the passage. 

What I really liked about the devotional is she gives the readers action items through questions or actions for the reader. Finally, each day ends with prayer prompts for morning, afternoon, and evening prayer times. Including examples of what one can pray.

The devotions are geared toward adult women that are married.

Review: Catching Christmas by Terri Blackstock

Catching ChristmasCatching Christmas by Terri Blackstock
My rating: 4 of 5 stars

This was a bittersweet story. I think most everyone will guess the basics of how it will end, but it is such a sweet story with a wonderfully endearing character in Callie.

I’m not sure how many times I cried during this story, but I truly loved it. The author created characters that as a reader I fell in love with. It is a story that reminds us about the importance of life and the people we share it with.

Definitely recommend it to those who love Hallmark movies!
