Book Review: Midnight Mercies by Chappell


I was so blessed to be on the launch team for this book. It came to me at the perfect time. I was in a pit of depression, probably the deepest one I have ever been in as of yet. I was stuck in a way. I consumed this book and it helped bring relief. This is no exaggeration. Depression can be long-suffering, so I have reread and listened to the audiobook now that it is also available. It has been and continues to be such a balm to a hurting heart. Especially a mother's heart that is hurting or crushed. In this rough season, this is one of the things that God has used to sustain me.

Why this book? It is because it is written in a way that helps the reader to not feel alone. It is vulnerable and honest. It instills hope, the lasting hope in Christ. It is filled with scriptural and practical applications. It gives action steps and things to ponder.

In any stage of motherhood, this book is helpful. We all go through difficult seasons. This is a book to have on hand for yourself or others you see struggling. 

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

Book Review: Proverbs: Stories of Wisdom and Folly by Murray


This is an easy-to-read, realistic daily devotional. I think the age range can be for anyone but I did think it seemed to fit the high school or college age range best. Simply because of the kinds of stories it shared and the writing in general. 

Each devotional directs you to a specific reading in the Proverbs, then it has information and stories about it, then it is followed up with "Changing our story with God's story," a summary, a question to ponder, and a prayer. It is pretty straightforward and interesting to keep your attention.

Proverbs is such a good book for practical living. I believe this book is important for that reason. It will help anyone who reads it live according to the Word of God in wisdom instead of folly. It addresses many relevant real-life categories that are important for our young people today to realize and understand.

This would be a great graduation gift or birthday gift for young people desiring to grow in their relationship and in the word of God. 

I received a copy of this book free of charge from Crossway for the purpose of an honest review.
