Love and Sacrifice

0FC3E0D1-3DB3-4C8E-A7F0-A97D0300D3E9

“Amid war and the fading dream of the confederacy, wounded soldier and a destitute widow discover the true meaning of Christmas and sacrificial love.” Christmas at Carnton is set during the civil war in Franklin, Tennessee. The main character, recently widowed Aletta Prescott struggles to hold her life together with her son after finding out her husband was killed during the war.
With a impending foreclosure and no job, Aletta finds an advertisement for the Women’s Relief Society auction and applies for a position.

Beautifully told story of love and loss. Aletta was an attentive and hard worker who starts to fall in love with a wounded confederate solider. There were some points in the book that I was not sure where the author was headed with the story line. However, it is a book I recommend. Reminds us of love filled with selflessness, love, generosity and courage.

Awesome Facial Product

My routine each evening and morning consists of using Young Living’s facial product. Satin Facial Scrub is like a spa in a container and leaves my face feeling awesome. This product is currently out of stock, but in Young Living fashion the alternative I use is Orange Blossom face wash. One bottle can last me at least 4-6 months.

I love that no matter the product with YL there is AlWAYS an option, so if a product is out of stock I know I will have options.

Today is the day to ditch ALL your products that you use to wash your face and SWITCH to products that are much better for your skin!

Why Does A Loving God Allow Suffering?

E6F1B01B-060C-40D9-BE9D-B11997CBAF81

 

 

I had a tough time reading “Answering The Toughest Questions About Suffering and Evil” because when I finished the book it left me wanting more, however I know there is hope regarding evil and suffering. There is an end!!! While Christ conquered evil on the cross, it will end once and for all in the final days.

At some point we all question how could a loving God allow people to suffer? Did God create evil? With all that is happening in the world today, we must remember God is an all loving God. The author’s cover topics such as: Why Do The Innocent Suffer? If God created everything, did He create evil? The author’s incorporate scripture when talking about each topic and include questions for reflection at the end of each chapter.

I highly recommend this book, it will make you stop and rethink about suffering, evil and judgement. “There is no shame in asking-after all, even some of the greatest men and women in the Bible had doubts. Don’t let your questions go unanswered. What you find might just change your life.
I recevied a free copy of this book from Bethany House in exchange for an honest review.

Love For Family, Christ and Community

Mi Casa UpTown brought me on a journey through areas I remember passing through on the subway or on the way into “the city” from Brooklyn or Long Island. I heard car horns, the smell of the air, the bounce of a small red ball against the buildings. Mi Casa reminds us that we as followers and believers of Jesus are not meant to “do” life alone, we are to “do” life in a Christ- centered community, plant roots, build families, love our neighbors and trust Jesus. Each neighborhood has its own story, Washington Heights, way at the top of the subway map has a story, Brighton Beach, Brooklyn, way at the bottom of the subway map has a story.

For the needy will not always be forgotten; the hope of the oppressed will not perish forever. Psalm 9:18. In a society that is so rush, rush, a city that never sleeps, the latest iPhone or material item that takes our eye off the prize is not worth it. “The real work comes in loving, building up and considering others above yourself.” It takes faith to “die for yourself.” If we truly want to live like Christ, we have to allow everyone to see our imperfections, if we present ourselves as perfect than we are not letting real relationships to form and grow. We are by far from perfect. “Simply put, the way to love someone well is to share your life with them, the bad as much as the good. The things worth challenging as much as the things worth celebrating.”

I love that Rich can find so many opportunities in a city that never sleeps and is always on the move, this is still plenty of life and beauty in Washington Heights. Rich wove stories of biblical people like John and Paul into everyday life, made me stop and rethink my perspective on how I need to live out my life. Job well done Pastor Rich, you are a gifted story teller, thank you for capturing it and writing a book. A journey on how to love again. I highly recommend Mi Casa UpTown.

I received a copy from BH Publishing for an honest review.

The Power of Purpose

B61F1D38-5F8B-4A30-85E6-ED4BDB105CA5

The Power of Purpose and the Book of Philippians reminds us that we have to submit to His leading in all things, trusting Him and His plan that he has for us. Pastor Michael walks us through Paul’s letter to the Philippians, He is calling us to maintain focus and vision, calling us to the power of purpose. We need to commit to live out this book with everything God has given us NOW!

Purposeful Prayer, chapter two really stood out to me. We have to all pray with a purpose and live out that purpose. We need to commit to live out this book with everything God has give us NOW!

In this day and age we are too quick to let our flesh nature take over when things don’t go the way we think they should, The Power of Purpose reminds us all that we are living our life for Jesus and we should react accordingly. We tend to give in to a world that encourages us to go with the flow, we are tempted to believe that we have no purpose, when in reality our purpose is with Jesus. This is a must read!
