21 prayers of generosity review

"21 Prayers of Generosity: Living a Generous Life Through the Power of Prayer and God's Word" by CJ Hitz is a collection of 21 days worth of scripture and prayer concerning generosity.  Each day gives a focus of an area to be generous about and includes one to two scriptures.  I really liked this book.  It was probably my favorite of the 21 series.  I would recommend this book to anyone.  I received this book in exchange for an honest review from Body and Soul Publishing.

shaker christmas

"Christmas at Harmony Hill" by Ann H. Gabhart is the story of a young bride, Heather, who is following her husband Gideon's unit during the Civil War as a laundry maid.  When it comes close to her time to give birth, she returns to her home to find her mother has died along with two of her brothers.  These deaths have hardened her father to turn her away.  She goes to Harmony Hill, a Shaker village, where her aunt Sophrene is living.  Sophrene is also experiencing a cross roads of sorts, feeling the need to change her life and experience love in a worldly way. 
I have read little about Shaker's and therefore don't know much to compare this novel to in a way of accuracy.  The Shakers are like anyone else, I guess.  Some are mean, some want to be powerful, some are kind, etc. The author doesn't show them in a kind light usually.   Heather finds shelter among them, though not always support.  She learns forgiveness of her father and never has a Shaker heart.  Sophrene is more the struggle character.  She has lived both ways, finding only peace as a Shaker.  However, she is no longer feeling that peace.  This is a fair book.  Those that like Amish books will probably like this one.  I give it three stars.  I received this book in exchange for an honest review from

family christmases

"Where Treetops Glisten" is three stories of Christmases from 1941 to 1945 involving the Turner family written by Cara Putman, Sarah Sundin, and Tricia Goyer.  These three ladies are experts at historical fiction and this novel is an interwoven showcase of the authors at their best.  The three authors do a brilliant job at maintaining a similar writing style and keeping the family dynamic flowing throughout the stories. 
The Turners have three living children and "Treetops" focuses on each child for three Christmases.  The stories are of love, of course, but also of the war both at the front lines and at home.  The Pete character will make any woman swoon and Merry is such a great character, the reader won't want the book to end.  I give it 5 stars.  I received this book for free in exchange for an honest review from Waterbrook Press.

2nd Christmas

"An Amish Second Christmas" by Beth Wiseman, Kathleen Fuller, Ruth Reid, and Tricia Goyer is a collection of four novellas all centering around Second Christmas.  Three of these stories are romance, the first one is sorta, but not really.  Second Christmas is December 26th; a day when Amish celebrate with friends, neighbors, and extended family.  The 25th is more of a reflective, close family day centered on remembering Christ's birth.  The 26th is more of a party.  Kind of like the "English"'s  Christmas eve and Christmas Day.  I'll give a review of the first novella, "When Christmas comes Again" by Beth Wiseman. 
Wiseman tells of a modern Amish family, whose husband/father has recently died.  The mother (and later the daughter) both stumble across the husband's estranged father.  He seems to be mentally ill and likes to tell tall tales.  He is a hoot and a half! I kind of wish this story had been a full sized novel so that I could  have gotten to know him better.  Wiseman tells the story with both humor and heart break.  The family comes to know their grandfather and begins to heal from their loss.  I really liked these authors.  This book is written like a showcase of their best work.  Definitely worth the money to buy.  I received this book for

evening prayers review

"Evening Prayers: For Every Day of the Year" by Christoph Friedrich Blumhardt  is a daily devotional.  Every day has a short scripture and a prayer.  The devotions are not necessarily for evening; they can be read anytime.  The entries are of a generic sort and not designed specifically  for moms or men or youth or any particular person; they are for anyone of any age group.  They are also not at a beginner level with a hook, more written for an already Christian looking for closure at the end of the day.  A throwback to the childhood prayers before bed.  I liked having a little closure before bed that this book provided. The only draw back would be that when tired the book wouldn't hold my attention.  I had to start reading it earlier in the evening.  I received this book for free in exchange for an honest review from Handlebar Publishing.

Christmas Rose

"A Christmas Gift for Rose" by Tricia Goyer is a short and sweet novel that takes place shortly after WWII in an Amish community in Ohio.  Rose Yoder is the adopted daughter of an Amish couple who is searching for her place in the world.  Jonathan, an Amish WWII vet, has returned from Europe with hopes of returning to Rose and their relationship.  Rose, however, believes there is only one right way and she gets to decide what that right way is.  The novel watches Rose mature as she searches for her true family and explores PTSD in soldiers returning from war. Goyer brings quiet a lot on impact in such a tiny little book.  Goyer is one of the few Amish writers that I really like, however, this book goes beyond the usual Amish scenario.  It goes much deeper into what a true family is and how all of us have wounds we just need to know how to live with them and heal.  I give this one 4.5 stars.  I received this book for free in exchange for an honest review from

Mathia's Quilt

"The Doctor's Christmas Quilt" by Kathy Mathias is the story of Laura, a staunch Pro-lifer and physician who's views are tested when her daughter, Megan, a med student, becomes pregnant. Can she practice what she preaches? The author keeps the night of conception a little vague.  Alex, the self-centered and egocentric boyfriend, may have date-raped Megan or there may have been a lot of begging and pleading with a little coercion.  The lines can get blurry, and this one is blurry. Leaving Laura even further tested in her beliefs. 
This is a very well written story entangling, abortion, forgiveness, rape, and spiritual growth.  The author discusses the abortion issue without beating the reader over the head with it.  She shows that even the most dedicated stance can waver when life rears its ugly head.  The characters are all fairly well developed.  Mathias even brings clarity to the Alex character showing both the immaturity and the kindness.  I loved this book and hated to see it end.  I received this book for free from in exchange for an honest review.

sooner or later

"God'll Cut You Down" by John Safran is a real life crime story about a white supremacist, a black hustler, a murder, and a whole lotta sides.  "God'll" is the telling of the story in the time of the writing of the book adventure. Safran, an Australian Jew, travels to Mississippi to research the story of Richard Barrett, a white supremacist, who has some sort of relationship with Vincent McGee, a black 20 something repeat offender.  Vincent murders Richard, whether it was a lover's spat or a employee abuse gone wrong, or a race inspired murder, no one knows.  That is what Safran is trying to find out.  All are possibilities.
This is a captivating book.  The murder never really makes much sense, but I imagine most don't.  Strangely, this book is actually pretty funny.  I like how the author spins the story making even the racial tension in the south be amusing.  The further into the book the author goes the less amusing it gets and the more tense it gets.  The murder mystery has more layers than a ogre. I highly recommend this book.  This book was given to me in exchange for an honest review from First to Read.

Breaking up is hard to do

"Breaking the Rules" by Melinda Curtis is a break-up/getting back together novella about Jack, an NBA team owner, and Viv, his angry, capable soon to be ex-wife.  Viv has finally gotten Jack to sign the divorce papers, claiming that he doesn't love her.  However, Jack has cooked up some plans of his own.  He has locked the two of them in a safe room for a 12 hour "cooling period".  This novella is a quick and sexy read.  There is some steaminess.  Not too much so that it gets uncomfortable to read, but you wouldn't want your preteen to get a hold of the book either.  The writing is good, the sex is good, the romance is good.  The only bad part is that Jack falls while in the safe room and re-injures his spine leaving him temporarily paralyzed.  The weird part is that the whole time Viv can't get sex off of her mind.  I'd be freaking out myself.  I might have left that part out or explained it a little better.  However, as far as romances go, I'd give it a whirl if I were you.  I received this book for free in exchange for an honest interview from The Sweet Team.

keepers covenant review

Lynn Austin's "Keepers of the Covenant" is book 2 of the Restoration Chronicles.  The two books do not need to be read in order, though they are written in a chronological order.  In this novel Austin follows the Queen Esther story, only without the Esther part playing too much of an aspect in the story.  The book follows what were the rest of the Jews doing?  In case you are unfamiliar with the story:  The king's right hand man had convinced him to kill all of the Jews in the kingdom. 
I liked this book better than the first.  No real reason that I can explain, but it just interested me more.  Austin seemed a little more comfortable in her writing on this subject.  She writes on several different characters.  There are the three brothers and their families; then she also includes the sword maker and his family.  To complete the story she also includes the Jews' enemies point of view and their families.  Ironically, I had just finished a novel about Jews in Nazi Austria in Concentration camps.  The similarities were startling.  Since both were fictional tellings, I am not sure how much was true and how much was tradition.  But it just goes to show how easy greed is to use as leverage.  Good story.  I received this book for free in exchange for an honest review from Bethany House Publishers.

spoken for review

"Spoken For: Embracing Who You Are and Whose You Are" by Robin Jones Gunn and Alyssa Joy Bethke is a non fiction work giving a different perspective about a woman's relationship with God.  the usual relationship that is mentioned in most churches is that of Him being our Father.  This book looks at things a bit differently.  The two women take turns sharing points in their lives that they have had relationship woes and successes with men and how it enhances their relationship with God.  They see it and explain it as God being a husband.  At the end of each chapter are "thinking questions" that the reader can use for discussion or reflection.  There is a lot of scripture quoted as well.
I totally embrace this view of God as our "husband" rather than a father figure.  My father had a temper that wouldn't quit, so seeing God as a father really wasn't a relationship I wanted to get to deep in to.  I can view Him much clearer as a husband.  The writing is great and the women really relate to the reader (provided she is a woman).  I can't see how a man would be able to relate to this book, but the writing will relate to women.  I highly recommend this book to women groups and women looking for a good daily read.  It is a quick read and easy to follow.  I received this book for free in exchange for an honest review from

butterfly and violin review

"The Butterfly and the Violin" by Kristy Cambron is a fictional telling of Adele, a young woman whose father is a general in the Third Reich in Austria during WWII, and Sera, an art gallery owner in present day New York.  Sera has fallen in love with a painting of a young woman playing a violin with a prisoner tattoo.  She begins a quest to find the original painting and all that she can about Adele.  This leads her to William, the grandson of the man who sent Sera the copy.  The two begin a romance as they deepen their search.  Adele is the woman in the painting that Sera is searching for.  Adele is in the throws of a forbidden romance with a merchant's son and is helping to hide Jews from the Nazis.  Her father ultimately finds out and has her put into the prison system for "reeducation." 
This novel is both mystery and romance.  It is a really well written novel that leaves the reader thinking about it all of the time. Neither couple takes over the book and both are equally appealing.  I enjoyed watching Adele mature though hated to read how it was done.  I received this book for free in exchange for an honest review from

christmas in the sticks (Giveaway)

"A Robertson Family Christmas" by Kay Robertson is the first fictional work done in the Robertson clan books.  This novel features Hunter, a Chicago teen, who wins a contest to spend Christmas in Louisiana with the Robertson family of Duck Dynasty fame.  Hunter comes from a divorced family and has been estranged from his father and brother.  His mother works most of the time leaving Hunter alone a lot.  He goes to West Monroe and learns that family is not just silence and ignoring, but of love, laughter, and faith. 
As usual, with books based on famous people, I will review this book on its own merit and not that of the show, the family, or whatever "scandal" is going on at the time.  Miss Kay has some help with writing from Travis Thrasher.  I am unsure on what level and how much help she received, but the writing is good.  The story starts off a little like a commercial for the family, but if I were writing on my own family, I would probably gloss over a few parts too.  After she gets into the novel, the family becomes a lot more real.  The only thing I didn't like was that she went back and forth between telling the story through Korie's (the woman of the house that Hunter stayed at) point of view and Hunter's.  I would have rather she stuck with one or the other, preferably Hunter since the story was primarily about him.  I would recommend this book, whether a fan of the show or not, as a good Christmas read.  To get in the spirit of Christmas I will have a giveaway!  I have two hard cover books to giveaway from Tyndale Publishers to two people who either comment or message me ( about their wackiest, most Robertson Christmas they have ever had.  The final day will be November 15.  I will announce the winners on November 17th.

here come the pumpkins

"The Halloween Curse" by M. R. James is a mid-level grade school age (4-6 grade) Halloween mystery keeping with the tradition of RL Stine.  The text is an easy read, with not remotely possible scary scenarios.  In the town of Boo, two siblings, Amanda and Bill, are trying to figure out how the pumpkins are attacking kids and what is happening to the kids afterwards when they disappear.  Their prime suspect is Mr. Night, a new-to-town antique book store owner that they are following around. 
This book would be considered ridiculous to a middle schooler, with the antics being so impossible.  They wouldn't find it scary.  However, if the child were too young, you might wind up with a kid that is terrified of pumpkins.  The 4-6 grade level would not believe the story possible, yet still find it scary enough for a good read.  The text is easy enough for that age as well.  I received this book in the Member Giveaways on

the river review

"The River" by Beverly Lewis follows two formerly Amish sisters living in the world as Englishcers.  Tilly has a tense and difficult relationship with her father, leading to her leaving the Amish community shortly after her youngest sister, Anna, was killed in a accidental drowning.  Ruthie is Tilly's younger sister, and has left the Amish community 5 years later after a difficult breakup with Will, an Amish boy without good intentions.  The two sisters go back home to their parents anniversary party after years of no contact and have a reunion of sorts.  Not all goes happily, but the healing begins.
If you have tired of Beverly Lewis I encourage you to go back and give this book a try.  She really gets into the nitty gritty of the father-daughter relationship.  She dives into the humanity of the relationship, rather than the usual "amishness" of things.  Then she drops a bomb about 3/4 of the way through book. The ending will give you a tear or two.  Good book.  I received this book for free in exchange for an honest review from Bethany House.

early christmas

"Sweet Christmas Kisses" is a collection of 14 different romance novellas.  All of the romances are at a PG  level.  The novellas are all written by a different best selling author.  I will give a review on two of the stories:  Mistletoe in Maine by Gina Baird and The Christmas Promise by Melinda Curtis.  Mistletoe is a fair romance.  It's fairly predictable and quick.  A divorced woman and her two children decide to go to an Inn in Maine for Christmas.  While there she meets the Innkeeper, who is a widower and father of a teenage son.  The group along with the innkeepers mother, her much younger lover, and an ex-girlfriend all share a magical Christmas in winter wonderland Maine.  Christmas Promise is a much better book.  It is quite humorous and the reader becomes much more invested in the characters.  In Promise, the "bon-bon heiress" goes to Ecuador to try to resuscitate her family's cocoa beans.  While there she meets an American former Army soldier who is walking for his fallen friend.  To make things harder, he only has one leg.  I liked this couple and the writing.  As for the collection as a whole, the stories are all....well, sweet.  Which is the point.  I would recommend this as a good read for someone who wants to take a little mind-getaway.  You can also feel welcome to leave it laying out, because it is acceptable for teens and preteens to read as well.  I received this e-collection for free in exchange for an honest review from Sweet Kisses.

NEGU review

"Never Ever Give Up: The Inspiring Story of Jessie and her JoyJars" by Erik Rees is a heart breaking, gut wrenching, amazing book.  The book follows Jessie Rees, a young girl with brain cancer on her 13 month battle.  It is told by her father, Erik.  He holds nothing back.  He is completely honest in the journey.  The book not only has a life changing topic, it is also written very well.  This is not just a book by a dad, but a book by a writer as well. 
This is an incredibly hard book to read.  It is so emotionally difficult.  When I agreed to be on the review team, my thoughts were that I could see how my husbands childhood with leukemia was like.  But there were too many years and science has advance so far, that there was little similarities.  However, I am the mother of a 9 year old with a life threatening heart condition.  So there were many things that I could relate to.  If you were to read and think he was exaggerating in parts, I can tell you he was not.  There were so many things he described that I had done myself.  Losing a child, or preparing to lose a child is the worst experience anyone can ever have. 
I received this book in exchange for an honest review and promotion from Handlebar Publishing.  I easily give it 5 stars.  This is a book you must read.

this is how review

"This is How I'd Love You" by Hazel Woods is a novel centering on two pen pals during WWI.  Hensley lives with her father, a newspaper writer who plays chess via post mail with Charles, a privileged man serving as an emergency driver on the fronts in Europe.  As the two carry on the long-distance chess game, Hensley hijacks one of the letters and writes in the margins to Charles. The two being their own correspondence and quickly form a close relationship.  Shortly thereafter, she discovers that she is pregnant. The father is an actor that lied and used her to get his way.  As the two live separate lives, the novel follows them. 
This is a very interesting novel.  The ending is a bit predicable, but the storyline is well written.  The characters are a bit dramatic, especially Hensley, but keep in mind she is only seventeen.  Charles is every woman's dream man.  The research on gas use is especially intriguing.  I give it a B+.  I received this book for free in exchange for an honest review from First to Read through Penguin.

Hear me roar!

"Roar: The New conservative Woman Speaks Out" by Scottie Nell Hughes, Director of the Tea Party News Network, is the author's view of the modern Conservative woman.  Hughes writes of the compare and contrast of the Democrat Woman and the Republican woman.  First, let me state that I am a Libertarian, which means Liberals think I am Conservative and Conservatives think I am Liberal.  So this is a fairly unbiased opinion of this book.  Secondly, this will be a review of the book and her writing rather than her views and opinions.  They are hers and she is entitled to them; I will be judging how she writes them. 
The book is well written; well researched; and well thought out.  She know what she wants to say and tries to connect with other women in how she says them, especially mothers.  Many of her points are valid.  She makes her points and then backs them up with research.  However, this book would have been much more enjoyable if it were not so "us vs. them".  She goes out of her way to compare the two parties' women when I would rather she had stuck to making the points of her own viewpoint.  She tends to lump women of each party together rather than have them stand as individuals.  I give it a B.  I received this book in exchange for an honest review from Worthy Publishing.

miracle in dry season review

"Miracle in a Dry Season" by Sarah Loudin Thomas is a Christian novel told through the eyes of Casewell, a 35 year old bachelor living in West Virginia in 1954.  A new woman with a 5 year old in tow comes to Wise, WV and catches the eye of the town's leading bachelor.  Soon after Perla arrives in Wise, a drought strikes the area and leads the local preacher to blame Perla for the drought.  Seems to think it is punishment for having a child out of wedlock.  Then the witch hunt is on. 
This book was a hard book to get into.  I never really came to care much about the characters.  The witch hunt seems a little ridiculous for 1954; more for a 1354 era really.  The book is well written.  Characters seem well developed.  The writer just could not bring me into the story. The cancer storyline was deeper and more realistic.  I give it three stars.
  I received this book in exchange for a review from Bethany House Publishers.

"Seeing America" by Nancy Crocker is an excellent book.  It is the telling of three 1910 high school graduates from a small town in Missouri that decide to travel from Missouri to Yellow Stone.  Not that that might not be adventure enough, but one of the them is blind and is also the owner of the Model T that they plan to travel in.  The three boys aren't exactly friends, but in a small town everybody knows everybody and there aren't a lot of options when it comes to buddies.  So the three set of in search of themselves. 
The travel methods of 1910 are much different than today.  Lack of roads, hotels, money other than cash made even a few days of travel an adventure.  This book is not only full of action, but it is funny!  Like peeking into the brain of a teenage boy.  Which is weird since the author is a woman and must be older since she sang with Loretta Lynn.  This is a really good book and I highly recommend it.  I received this book in a drawing from

Contact: Vicky Lynch  |  E:  |  P: 630.362.8829  |  W:



Erik Rees 


  1. Never Ever Give Up is immensely personal. Why is it important to share your daughter’s story?

 I had three goals for sharing Jessie’s story; increase awareness of childhood cancer, give people facing personal hurdles in life hope and to create a wave of compassion through personal acts of kindness.


  1. Where did Jessie come up with the idea of creating JoyJars? Why did she do this, instead of focusing on herself? 

Jessie came up with the idea after she started treatment and learned there were lots of children that couldn’t leave the hospital.  She just had a burden for them and wanted to help them.  The name actually came from taking her middle name “joy” and adding it to “jars”.  She choose to spread joy because she knew life was about giving not getting. 


  1. How did making the JoyJars, not only help others, but also begin helping your family?  JoyJars gave Jessie a sense of purpose during her fight with cancer.  She loved filling each one and sending them out to kids.  She really loved seeing pictures of kids holding her JoyJars on Facebook.  Our entire family helped Jessie with JoyJars and today we still stuff “joy” as a family in her honor.


  1. Tell us about the Facebook page Jessie created. How did social media help Jessie throughout battling cancer? 

We needed a way to keep people updated on Jessie’s condition so we were going to create a CaringBridge page but she didn’t want one so we suggested Facebook.  She was okay with Facebook and started sharing her daily journey with people she had never met.  Her Facebook fans become like family to her as they sent daily notes of encouragement and prayers.  Jessie felt very alone and physically limited during her fight so her fans made her feel loved.


  1. You did not fully share the extent of Jessie’s illness to your other two children. Do you think this was the right move? Why? 

Every parent has to make decisions that they feel are best for their children.  Stacey and I felt it was best to hold on to the fact God could heal Jessie at anytime.  In addition, we wanted everyone living with “hope”, which is a very powerful thing in life no matter what age.  Was it the right move? After talking with Shaya and JT afterwards they were both thankful they didn’t live with this dark cloud over their lives each day.  They did an amazing job loving their sister and being there for her.  Looking back, we wouldn’t have changed a thing.



  1. How did your kids handle their grief? What advice do you have for parents who are dealing with a tragedy? 

Grief is a powerful emotion that everyone processes differently. Some get quiet and some get loud.  Our job as parents were to simply walk with them through their grief and let them know we were there for them no matter what.  My only tip for parents is don’t hide your pain from your kids.  Let them know you are hurting too and together with God’s help you will all heal.


  1. Jessie had a strong faith in God. How did she draw strength from her relationship with God during her treatment?
     Jessie did have an amazing faith in God which inspires me daily.  She would pray for herself, listen to worship music during treatments and do her nightly devotions with her mommy.  She drew her strength from Phil. 4:13 and asked God daily for support.


  1. Many of your friends and family members walked along side of you during this difficult process. How did this help? 

Jessie was blessed to be part of a great school, church and swim team which provided her and our family wonderful emotional, spiritual and practical support.  After Jessie moved to Heaven, we didn’t have to cook a meal for four months. 


  1. Unfortunately, cancer strikes 1 in 300 children before the age of 20. What advice do you have for others who want to help a family with a child fighting cancer? 

 In the book I list all sorts of simple ways to help families with children fighting cancer.  Families need help but don’t want to have to add “managing” the help to their already chaotic lives.  The best thing to do if you really know the person is show up and do something.  Don’t ask, “how can I help you?”  Just help.


  1. Over 80,000 JoyJars have been distributed internationally. How have you accomplished so much in such a small time frame?
    We are actually nearing 100,000 JoyJars in all 50 states and 28 countries.  We just received a request from Lima, Peru.  Social media has been the best channel of communication for us.  Jessie simply just started at Children’s Hospital of Orange County and it grew week by week. We now partner with over 275 children’s hospitals and 175 Ronald McDonald Houses.


  1. How did your experiences with Jessie’s illness strengthen or challenge your faith?  During Jessie’s fight it strengthened my faith as I depended on God to give me the wisdom, strength and peace to walk with Jessie and the family.  I truly thought He would heal her physically.  Unfortunately, God choose Heaven as a means of healing which challenged my trust in Him for months.  Now, Heaven has never been more real to me and I can’t wait to spend time in eternity with Jessie and my Heavenly Father.


  1. Do you have advice for other Christians who may be questioning God’s plan? 
    I don’t know if I would call it “advice” but I would let them know they are not alone in their feelings. I questioned God many times and still do.  I don’t question His love for me or Jessie.  I questioned His choice in using Heaven as a healing agent.   But now that time has past, I see His plan.  Jessie was an Angel sent to Earth with a message (Never Ever Give Up) and a mission (childhood cancer).  How else can you explain how one twelve year old girl, fighting cancer, choose to give to other kids and started a global movement of compassion that has raised millions of dollars to “care” for children/families fighting cancer around the world.  My only answer is, God had a plan!
    In addition, I would encourage them to realize God’s plans don’t always match up to our own plans but He is still a loving and caring God.  Faith in God is all about “believing” in our hearts and heads that God loves us no matter what and when we fully depend on Him, He will show us the way.


  1. Tell us more about the Jessie Rees Foundation. September is National Childhood Cancer Awareness month. How can we help? 

The Jessie Rees Foundation is a global childhood cancer charity dedicated to ensuring every child fighting cancer has the support and resources to Never Ever Give Up.  We fulfill our mission by 1) encouraging courageous kids to NEGU, 2) assisting courageous families to NEGU, 3) rallying communities to NEGU for courageous kids, 4) mobilize athletes to NEGU for courageous kids and 5) inspire the world to NEGU for courageous kids.


Each year in the US, the month of September is dedicated to “childhood cancer awareness”.   If you have a social media platform, please join our Going Gold campaign and help raise awareness of this devastating disease.
