I’ve read the most wonderful book, Nuggets from the Heart, by Rosie Chavez Williams. If you’re looking for something encouraging to read, this is it! It’s a heart-warming compilation of short stories and testimonies from Rosie’s life. All of which point back to our wonderful Savior and His unfailing love and faithfulness.  A Little Bit About Rosie I first “met” Rosie almost a year ago when I started blogging. She was a member of some of the same blogging groups I joined, and she took notice of me and my writing very early on. She became one of my biggest cheer-leaders and encouragers over the first several months ofRead More →

I have just finished reading the book, Seen: Hope Prevails – A True Story, by Karen Michaelle. It is her own personal testimony about how God took her through difficult life circumstances and ultimately led her to start an amazing ministry in Kenya.  It’s an inspiring story, and one that will likely challenge you to consider what God may be leading you to do for His Kingdom. Karen’s story starts out with overwhelming pain, trials, and mistakes.  This unlikely beginning to what turns out to be such a powerful, God-honoring testimony leaves the reader feeling empowered.  Truly God can use all of us, no matter where we are, no matter what we’ve comeRead More →

  I have been sharing with you recently about the Anxiety and Depression that both my love and I have been dealing with.  I must admit, I have been skeptical in the past when I would hear people talking about either of those issues.  They have become such buzz words.  Over-used, over-diagnosed, and over-medicated.  At  least, that’s what I thought.  It just so happens that my best friend suffers greatly with a real-deal anxiety disorder and after walking through that with her, and seeing her several times in the throws of severe panic attacks, I just didn’t think most people knew what they were talkingRead More →

I have just read, Your Sexually Addicted Spouse: How Partners Can Cope and Heal, by Barbara Steffens, PhD, LPCC, and Marsha Means, MA.  I have to say, I’ve read a lot of helpful books in the last few years, but this one is by far the best one yet!  I really cannot recommend it more highly.  In fact,  I recommend this book not only to the spouses of sex/porn addicts, but also to anyone who is trying to understand or help those partners.  This book will offer so much insight into the trauma that the betrayed spouse deals with everyday.  Both my love and IRead More →
