Book Review: Deeper by Dane Ortlund

This book is about sanctification. This is a topic that is important to the Christian walk and life. I do not believe enough people understand the difference between sanctification and justification well. This book helps with that. And is useful for the Christian walk of faith in becoming who they are meant to be in Christ.

It is like a follow-up to Gentle and Lowly (which I highly recommend) on the character of Jesus. You can read one without the other but your study is more enriched by reading both. Both are helpful to read as aids in our Christian walk and growth in Christ.

I received a copy of this book at no charge from the publisher for the purpose of an honest review.

Book Review: Raising Emotionally Healthy Kids by Huie


I had the opportunity to review this book prior to release. I love it so much that I ordered my own hard copy to keep and reference in the future. In the practice of faith-based counseling, parents need this resource and reminder. It is a must-read for parents or anyone who works with children because we simply have not addressed enough how important it is to help kids learn how to process emotions in order to be healthy adults. This is a biblical need for a healthy generation. And if this is disagreeable to some, just take a long look at the Psalms, It is an entire book dedicated to processing and recognizing emotions before the Lord. I am not sure exactly how we lost this skill-set but after counseling so many people who were raised to ignore and not process emotions, I see it as a real problem. This book, if practiced, helps make the process simple enough for any parent to follow. 

This book is also a short read so it is easy enough for any schedule to tackle. It is included in a series of other books called, raising kids in (different situations). All of the books would probably be helpful in parenting but I haven't had the chance to read any of the others in the series yet.

If you are a person who interacts with children in any way, this is a must-read. Pre-order it now and you will not regret it.
