Book Review: Pursuing Health in an Anxious Age by Cutillo


This book is an excellent read. It was challenging and word centered in every way. I was especially touched because this book came to me in a timely manner. I am a patient who has been disappointed with health care for a very long time. I suffer continually with no cure in sight for my suffering. I baffle the doctors. They cannot figure out what is causing my problems so we are both exasperated over it.

However, this book helped me see that I am looking at medicine and its practice in the wrong way. I have been looking at it to save me while I am in this temporary body but with all the knowledge that we possess today, some things are not knowable or fixable with our complicated bodies. This should not astound us. God is an amazing Creator. He made us wonderfully complex. Some things just cannot be known.

By helping increase my understanding of doctors and their medical training has helped me understand where some of the flaws come in. Learning about the way they are taught to disconnect with the patient on a deeper level helps me to not be as angry. Any sick person just wants the doctor to listen, be kind, be honest, and try. The best thing that could be said to me is, "I know this is very difficult for you and your life and I see your pain is very real, however, we just do not know what the cause it yet." Doctors must learn to connect with both the body and soul of a patient to help the healing process.

Another thing I loved about this book was the discussion of technology. Technology brings wonderful resources and cures of many kinds but they are not a one-size-fits-all kind of thing. They do not work on all people and this is where my thinking goes astray. I think if I go to the medical professional they can understand my body and do something to fix it. As our bodies decay little by little there are, at times, no real fixes.

After reading I can be thankful for medicines and technologies available but I never want them to take the place of God in my life. I have also learned that God is doing something in the sick persons life. It is an opportunity to let God enter into our suffering. It is a place of growth in grace as we sit and ponder His suffering and His love. And ultimately our final resurrection.

The author also wrote about learning our limits in our bodies, embracing the process of growing older, and the need for health care that extends evenly to all people. He wrote about the importance of our bodies and what the Bible says about that. Overall this book was informative and helpful. It is a good read to understand the balance of the medical field and right theology.

Book Review: A Spectacle of Glory by Tada


This devotional book is brilliant. It is a devotional with minimal words on each page yet packs a Christ directed punch. I found myself continually worshiping God as I read words that helped me to look to Christ in my daily life; no matter the situation.

This book is a very easy devotional that take little time to do daily. It gives you a Scripture to look up and then works through practical application. It is a great gift or personal devotional for daily reading. It will encourage any weary heart or add more joy to a happy heart.

Book Review: Martin Luther: Christian Biographies for Young Readers by Carr


These biographies are wonderfully done. I have had the opportunity to review two prior to this one and as usual, they do not disappoint! They are filled with just enough information to promote a good biography sketch for the young reader. It is information that would also hold the reader's interest.

Not only is the information written well enough to hold the reader's interest, the pictures are magnificently done. They are a joy to look at and help the young reader understand the content. Another thing I enjoyed about this book is that it included some fun, random facts in the back for the reader to enjoy.

Here is a video for you to enjoy to learn more about these great books.

Book Review: Parenting by Tripp


If you want a book on parenting that will inspire your heart toward worship; this is it. As parents, we often lose sight of who we are and the importance of the gospel; it is a sort of amnesia. This amnesia hits you in the most mundane of times which includes the ins and outs of parenting.

Tripp helps you in very practical ways by giving 14 gospel principles that will help you be on the right track in parenting. It is convicting, informative and helpful. I find myself being a better gospel centered parent because of reading this. It is a great tool for your parenting tool box. All people would benefit from reading this.

Book Review: Praying through the Bible for your Kids by Guthrie


This is a really neat book. It is set up with your daily Bible readings and for each day there is a little devotional about how to apply a portion of that Scripture to your everyday family life with kids. Then at the bottom of each page is a prayer help that you can pray for your children regarding what you just read.

It is an easy source of encouragement that will keep you in the word but also help you apply it to your life. This is great. It is a good resource that is easy enough to read daily. It would be good for any busy mom or dad. And can you imagine praying the Scriptures for your children for an entire year? What a blessing that would be.

Book Review: befriend by Sauls


I have struggled much of my life with my understanding of friendship. I think my problem came from the influence of pop culture 90's television shows. I would base my picture of friendship on that. I could never wrap my mind around a biblical view of friendship. This is until now. This book has finally helped me gain a glimpse into what biblical friendship actually is.

This book not only gave me a definition of biblical friendship but it also gave me various pictures and examples based on the life of Christ and others. It was supremely helpful. My life has been changed and moved by this book. I have been affirmed and challenged. I am thankful for both.

The best way to read this book is with a group of people. There are a few things to discuss at the end of each chapter and community would benefit from discussing these together. It would be life changing for the group.

I think every Christian should take the time to read this book. I also think non-Christians should read this book to get an insight into what Christian friendship is to look like. I think it would be a fire hydrant of surprising grace. I think it would draw them in. This book needs to be discussed.

Book Review: Eight Women of Faith by Haykin


I adored this book because it took a close look at women who shaped our faith history. I agree with the author, that we do need more books like this. Women's voices and actions have shaped much of history but the information on them is usually lost. The author did a magnificent job collecting  information on these women to give us a credible biographical account.

This book was interesting and an easy read. I was encouraged by it. I think it is a read that all Christians would benefit from. Learning the past and from "a great cloud of witnesses" whether male or female is always a good thing. It encourages growth in faith in Christ.

Book Review: Home by Fitzpatrick


This book was timely. I started reading it when I was going through a really rough health battle and found it super encouraging. It was a balm to my weary worn out soul. It takes a look at the New Heaven and New Earth and what that means for us in the here and now.

It is packed with Scripture and insight that continually points you toward what is to come for us that are in Christ. It is a book that helps you see that the here and now is worth it because what we do now matters and will carry on there.

I remember reading Randy Alcorn's Heaven and being greatly encouraged as well. This book is a little like the other but focuses on different things, particularly hurts we endure here. Alcorn's book appeals more to the imagination. Both are excellent and worth the read.

Book Review: Good and Angry by Powlison


This has been the best book I have ever read on anger. It is worth your time to pick up because we all deal with some form of anger from time to time. It is a universal emotion that we all have experienced so it would be good for us all to learn how to deal with it biblically.

This book first takes you through a bare bones look at what anger actually is. This was most instructive because it helps you see what you are actually dealing with.

The book then gives you some very practical ways to work through your anger. It gives great heart assessing tools that you can use to work through it. Anger can be good or bad. It depends on how it manifests. Anger is a desire for something that is perceived as a wrong to be made right. It is how we deal with that wrong that usually what gets us in trouble. When we learn to deal with our anger biblically and as God deals with it, it will help us significantly. God after all is making all things wrong right.

The last section of the book addresses some harder issues in overcoming anger which was also helpful because anger is something that may take a while to work through in certain cases. It will always vary from person to person. Since we all get angry and know people who get angry, it would benefit us all to get this book.

How Murder Shaped Me


1994, my high school graduation year, hope abides. Life has no limits. I feel as if I can rule the world. I endured suffering and fear at the tension and anxiety the class bully threw on everyone but this year I was in college. My life was finally free from the tension. Or was it?

That year, two girls were heinously murdered by three kids, all around my age. One of those perpetrators was this class bully we all feared. By all aspects of what information I have seen on the matter the crime was intentional. Some kids, 17 year olds, decided they didn't like some other kids so what did they do? They murdered them in cold blood. Kids, I went to school with, in my small town. The story gets even worse, to cover up what they did, they tried to burn the bodies. The mother of one of the perpetrators helped and then made them a pizza. What?! Is this the world I live in?

I didn't realize it then but this instilled a deep rooted fear in my life. Because I didn't know what to do with this horrible information, and didn't know how to grieve or filter it through a biblical worldview, for the next 21 years I would suffer with an unknown depression. A darkness that overwhelms me every anniversary month of these murders. The mind amazes me at how it tries to cope with hard things.

How does this shape us? Any trial or pressure we experience in life exposes the things we worship or don't worship. In my experience with these murders, I erected an idol of self-protection with some companions of control. These idols control our behaviors and responses to life.

What it exposed, despite the catechism and all the sin stained world I had seen, I wanted to believe that all people were inherently good. Much of the world wants to believe that too. Our fictional media often molds our thoughts to fit this box. Yet, we are born sinners. Nothing can deny that. I was glad to replace these thoughts with truth.

Yet, when I replaced these thoughts with truth of the real world, the idol of self-protection and control took over. If I can only control my environment then I will be safe. If only I can protect my self then I will be okay. I will do this at whatever cost possible. Then knowing this is not possible, depression hits and hopelessness takes over. Every anniversary month.

When God revealed this thought pattern, freedom came. We cannot trust ourselves to be sovereign. That job belongs to God alone. If we trust in God and His perfect plan, despite the confusion, we will be at peace in His capable hands. Nothing can come our way without His permission. Nothing. We have no need to fear or try to fix things or build walls of self protection. God is in control and God is good. That is all. I do not understand His thoughts. I do not understand why murder takes place besides the fact of the wicked condition of man. We are all capable of murder. We are all slaves to the sinful flesh apart from Christ. As the Bible says, "There is no one good. Not even one."

But in Christ, all things will be made right and all things will be restored. In Christ there is justice. In Christ there is hope.  So this October, I will be able to rightly tell this depression to leave because there is hope. "God is my refuge and strength, a very help in times of trouble." I pray this for each person involved or effected by this horrible incident so many years ago. I pray that we learn to put our hope and trust in Christ alone. May His peace comfort and strengthen each one.

Book Review: Teach Us to Want by Michel


Have you ever thought about having a biblical theology of want or a biblical theology of desire? It is important. You have a belief system in this area already because we all interpret the world based on our beliefs about our desires. It determines our behaviors and responses to life. It is something we need to learn to discern biblically. This book helps us think through it.

Our hearts are made to worship. If we are not rightly worshiping God, our desires can be tricky and replace God's rightful place. This book is filled with stories from the authors life and honestly that helps us think about our struggles with desire. It is the only book I know like it on the market that is truly gospel-centered in its approach (though I could be wrong). I really think it would benefit any believer to read.

It is written in an easy to read format. It is not incredibly long. If you have little time for reading you can easily read a chapter and then think about the questions at the end.

Book Review: Impossible People by Os Guinness


Os Guinness is an author that I really enjoy reading. His look at society and trends in a historical context are helpful and worth reading. This book gives us hope and encouragement in challenging us to confront the age of the times in a Christ-like manner. The goal of the book is to help make us as Christians, these "Impossible People."

In the secular west we need to be able to address the times with the love and truth of Christ. This book helps with how to do that. I found it extremely informative and believe it would benefit any believer. I am personally encouraged to press on in Christ while sharing His truth and love to the watching world. It is not the easiest read but important. It is a book to read a little at a time, pray and respond to.

Book Review: Gratitude Prayer and Praise Coloring Journal by Tyndale


This is a really cute journal. Its cover is made from a hard cardboard-like paper. It makes it cute and sturdy. I like the uniqueness of that. It also allows it to open well enough for drawing and journaling. Each page is creative and leaves room for coloring or drawing. The designs are beautiful. There are prayers on many of the pages and Scripture to meditate on.

If you are a fan of the adult coloring book fad this journal is for you! My daughter is over the moon about this journal so I am giving it to her. She is one who likes to draw and color. It will help her maintain focus which is good for an active mind. It will also help her meditate on God's truths as she does that.

How I See Hope as an Invisible Chronic Illness Sufferer


As I type this now, my left hand is buzzing with the pins and needles of numbness. It looks normal, but it is not. Pain pinches and knocks on my joints, running down my bones, but you cannot see it. My heart is fighting sadness because I want to be with the body of believers at church this morning but I cannot. Everything I do is a sacrifice of love. But you cannot know that. Easy things can be hard for someone with chronic illness. Hard choices are always being made. This week I chose to do too much so today my body is needing to recover.

Choosing what to do each day doesn't seem hard but it really is hard for someone with chronic illness. There is only so much that each person can give of themselves until their body shuts down. This is true for all of us but I look at the Olympians and how their bodies sustain long and grueling marathons and triathlons and I am amazed. These people may collapse after a marathon but I doubt they have to determine if they should use their strength for the day in going to the grocery store OR cleaning the house? Playing with their child OR helping them with their homework? Making breakfast OR taking a shower? These are the hard choices and sacrifices that those with little strength must weigh and determine. Otherwise the simplest thing will cause their body to crash. This is probably why I am such a control freak. I want to avoid a crash by any means possible.

I struggle with pride and contentment in this state I am in. It is the lot I have been given but sometimes, I just want to feel "normal" like I have no limits. And God does allow me great glimpses of limitlessness at times. Great glimpses where I can soar. I feel as if I can do anything! I love those moments. Yet, honestly they are just a moment, a taste, a shadow of what it will be like in Heaven to live with an unlimited body. Oh how I long for that day!

Guilt and shame are often companions of the chronically ill. Guilt because they don't feel as they can contribute so what is the point of them being there at all? Shame because no one can see the disability so they feel condemned by others who can bodily do the work. Grief is another common companion. If you are like me, those glimpses of strength often deceive you so when great weakness returns, you often grieve it all over again. Loneliness likes to companion you, depression likes to extend a hand of friendship, and despair likes to draw you and rope you in.

People mean well but often they don't know how to enter into someones pain and suffering. Those special people of grace do enter in and believe me it is not easy. I am hard to love. I don't want help. These are the people who know how to show Christ-like love. They give me hope. And hope is enough to resist the pull from despair. Then the hand of depression isn't as easily accepted and loneliness leaves because someone truly cares who can show Christ-like love.

That hope given is light exposing the darkness for what it is. The Light of Christ and He alone is what fills us with hope. Hope comes in one form through God's people loving well. Hope gives light which makes the darkness flee. Hope gives one courage to face another day with strength in the grace of Christ, which gives us the hope of the resurrection. Sin still runs rampant. We are in a fallen world. Sometimes our bodies fall apart and nothing can be done about it but the good news is, this is not our home. This is not the final destination. In Christ, there are pleasures forevermore. In Christ, all sad things will be made right. So we wait. I wait. With hope in the coming resurrection at the return of Christ. Will you wait with me?

The Fear of Man Crippling our Gifts


I stopped disciplining myself to write on this platform a while ago. I enjoy writing. I enjoy pointing others to Christ in the everyday things of life. Yet, I often felt judged. A writer often feels exposed because they often share personal stories of real life happenings. These real life stories are laid open for the entire world to see (if they find a humble blog like this) and that is risk.

However, to model love and real humanity, risk needs to be taken and there is a point where trust in Jesus has to be enough. We are told to not "hide our talents" in the gospels. We are told it is wicked if we do this. I don't want fear to drive me toward wickedness. I want to bring glory to God in all I do, in word or deed, and for that purpose I must make myself write.

I have learned through this process that even if there is just one reader who is pointed to Christ or loves Jesus more or finds their voice for Him or feels braver after reading my stories then it is worth it.

So I will jump back in. I don't know what it will look like yet but I will do it. It will probably be rough and I know it will be hard but I am jumping back in to share my voice in the already noisy web but hopefully my voice will reflect and point to the One whose voice is the one that really matters. Grace!

Book Review: Taste and See by Piper


This is a great book. It is filled with 152 brief devotions that are small but pack a big punch. Each day points you to the glory and supremacy of God in the seemingly mundane. We all need to be reminded of this. We often forget God in our lives when it comes to our day to day tasks. This book will help remind you. It spurned my soul toward worship of God.

I was encouraged by this book. Piper consistently does a great job in pointing us back to the greatness of God. I really enjoy reading anything that he writes because of this. It is not easy to keep God's goodness and supremacy at the fore front of your mind continually and it is tools like these that are needed to help us. I am thankful for this book and recommend it.

Book Review: Being There: How to Love Those Who Are Hurting by Furman


I loved this book and was greatly encouraged by it. As an invisible illness sufferer myself, I have desired to see a book like this that could help my friends better understand the sufferer. This book fits that need and is important because it fills a gap that is missing in addressing this area of suffering.

Who should read this? All Christians would benefit from reading this because Christ calls us to care for the sufferer. We live in a fallen world where every one of us will suffer in some way at some point so this book is for everyone.

My favorite thing about this book and the way it is written is that it continually points the reader back to Christ and what He has done for us, and continues to do, while we wait for His final return. The author also writes in an easy to read, relate-able style which makes this book effortless for your already busy schedule, especially if you are a full-time caregiver.

The goal of this life and our time in history is Christ. This book is filled with Scripture that helps keep us focused on what is really important. You won't find 10 steps to do in order to best help those suffering but you will find wisdom that will help you be a good helper and friend. You will also receive insight into the mind and heart of one who continually suffers. It is a needed glimpse into the life of suffering. It is honest, real, and encouraging.

I am currently undergoing a season of suffering through physical pain. I found this book to be helpful for me to express these things to my friends who want to help but are often unsure of how to help. It is a book I desire to give or recommend to my friends so they better understand how to help. I am really excited about this book. You will not be disappointed if you chose to read it. It will grow you in Christ and hopefully in helping others in the process.

Book Review: A Camaraderie of Confidence by Piper


This book is another in the biographical series of The Swans are not Silent. This book covers the lives of Spurgeon, Muller, and Taylor. It is very interesting because it shows the reader how the lives of these men intersect. It includes their writings and thoughts from the author. The focus of content is the faith of these men.

I like these series in general, but this one in particular I found encouraging because it showed how God used these men to encourage one another and spurn one another on in their love and faith for God. I love hearing these stories because they can encourage us to do the same in our time here and now.

This is worth the read. This series is worth the read. just get them all. You will not be disappointed. Books that encourage you in the Lord are worth your time.

Book Review: Delilah by Hunt


First, I have to admit I am biased in my review. I have grown to love everything, thus far, that I have read by Angela Hunt. Honestly, it is really hard to win me over as well when it comes to taking only a few chapters of what the Bible speaks about and making a story from so much we don't know, however, this author is careful with her research and makes a compelling story. She admits it is fiction and that from what we know we cannot say for certain that the story is portrayed exactly the way things happened. Yet, she brings characters to life in the historical setting and makes it very interesting to read. I honestly did not want to put it down.

I say all I say in the first paragraph because we have very little information on Delilah. The fictional story the author wrote is not an angle I have ever considered before and I found it fair and captivating. I really think this is a good read. It pulls the reader into the story and keeps you wanting more. It also helps a reader find interest in God by showing how others portray Him through the eyes of a pagan. Overall I recommend this book.

Caution to those with younger readers, there is some violent and sexual content included in this book but it was not of the graphic nature. The topic is just more weighty.

Book Review: I Don't Wait Anymore by Thornton


First, I have to make an appeal for judging a book by its cover. If you held this in your hands, this book is the perfect size and the cover is nice. If you picked it up you would feel how sturdy it is and it has a ribbon book mark. I love this about a book and wish they were all made like this.

Second, I really liked this book. It is written in a blog style form, making it easy to read. It is a series of stories from the author's life that leads you to the heart of God through her personal experiences. It is relatable and likeable. The book makes you want to just sit with her and have coffee while discussing the things of God. We can all learn something by letting go of our expectations and grasping instead onto what God gives us as good gifts.

Third, I know this author's sister so it was fun to read something that went along with her life as well. It was a really neat glimpse into their lives.

Book Review: Jesus Through Middle Eastern Eyes by Bailey


I loved this book! It really opened my eyes to the Scriptures in a new way which in turned God used to grow my faith stronger. Reading Scriptures through westernized eyes makes it hard to understand some of the original context. You lose some of the awe of the word when you miss the original cultural context. I often find myself wondering what the original hearers thought about it and what specifically this may have meant to them. This book helps bridge that gap.

The author grew up in the middle east so he knows the culture and history well. In this book he helps the reader understand key texts from the gospels in this context. It is brilliant. I believe this book should be read by any student who desires to carefully study the Bible. When we rightly understand the proper original context we can then better practically apply it to our contemporary situations. 

I, personally, was challenged, stretched, and inspired by reading the word of God in cultural context. This is a book that I will keep on my bookshelf to reference again and again. It is worth your time and money. 

The author has other titles available as well which I believe would also prove helpful to our understanding of Scripture. You can get this particular title here on Amazon.

Book Review: Praying Together by Hill


Prayer is one of my favorite topics so when anything comes out on prayer, I want to consume it! This title was particularly timely in this obsession I have though because I have been wrestling with how a more formalized prayer purpose or intention should look in our church setting. Thus, the title, Praying Together sparked my interest in my search for helpful, practical answers.

This book was Biblically sound on prayer, which is important because I find many that are not. The author even gave a span of when people started calling out in prayer from Genesis to Revelation. She then addressed occasions of contemporary movements of prayer which I found very interesting as well.

There were also basics on prayer and personal stories. Then the information that I was most interested in was praying together practically in the here and now. I loved the practical ideas that were included in this which will help me apply these in my own setting. There is power and unity that comes in praying together as groups. I was thankful for this timely book at a moment when I was processing this same issue. I know I can implement some of these things personally. I think if you take the time to read this book it will greatly encourage your prayer life.

Book Review: Broth and Stock by McGrunther


I received this book not really understanding how much went into broth and stock and the great varieties there are to them. I make bone broth now because of its great gut healing properties but I was really limited in my knowledge. I only really knew about bone broth. This book is gold standard on the topic! I learned so much about other kinds of broth you can make. For example, did you know that you can make broth from fish? Or vegetables? Probably basic for most but I just didn't think about it.

Not only did I learn about new kinds of broth, I also learned some of the back ground of various healing foods. There are do's and don'ts in here that will help you not ruin a broth. There are great instructions on basics if you have never made or thought about broth. It is really good for any person to read who is interested in food because broth is not just for soups, it is for way more! This book will educate you on that.

Another added bonus is there are recipes for many kinds of broths. And don't get me started on the pictures! They are brilliant. The pages in this book are of great quality and sturdy; good for keeping in the kitchen. I think if you have any interest in making food, you will enjoy this book.

Movie Review from Fish Flix


I had the opportunity to work with Fish Flix to review a movie. Overall it was a good experience. I really like their website and what they stand for. Check them out at 

Specifically what I like most is that when you buy from FishFlix, you support Christian ministries in the Middle East which is near and dear to my heart.

They carry a great variety of Christian movies which I personally think is a wonderful selection, check it out. If you would like to get a $5 coupon, join their email list here.

And you can get Bible Stories: Samson and Deliah,here.  I did not chose this movie but was randomly sent a movie for an honest review. I received it at no cost from the company for this review.

My review of this movie is not great. I did not really like it. It was a three hour depiction of a three chapter story from the Bible. I think the producer took too much creative license with it which is why I did not like. However, I do think you should check them out to see all the other wonderful movies including God's Not Dead 2, children's movies, and series like When Calls the Heart. I hope to order movies from them in the future. I had a great experience with the company.
