Some things last a lifetime.

And some things don’t and we are meant to say goodbye.

He was always there. It was not so much that he made his presence known unless he had to, it was more the sense of his there-ness. No matter what happened, he was always there, in the background, his quiet strength sustaining me. When we lost our daughter, when our son took his first steps, when that same son graduated and when our first grandchild was born. He was always there. Read More »

Book Review: Deliver by Tricia Mingerink & Giveaway!!!

Deliver-Blog-Tour-Header

My Review:

4 out of 5 stars

This is the fourth book in the Blades of Acktar series by Tricia Mingerink.

Overall:

The story was exciting, full of the many characters we have come to know and love over the course of this series and a perfect finish for the series. The plot was a little slow at first, but picked up speed and by the end I was staying up late into the night to finish. I love how Tricia does such an amazing job of making a medieval country so realistic, with it’s political details, down to how they affect the average person. I really enjoyed Read More »

Well spring has finally sprung! And I was so happy to finally get to wear this lovely skirt! I scored it at a thrift store while shopping on my trip to Georgia. This outfit was just one of those outfits that you feel so confident in. It felt like a “me” outfit. You know?Read More »

My Review:

4 out of 5 stars

This book was a sweet, but painful (in a good way) story of courage, sacrifice, and the willingness to follow God.

Overall:

The story was intriguing and there were moments where I was staring with my mouth open, in shock at the plot twist or what had just happened. It was a very well written tale, full of suspense, sweet moments, and a Christian message interwoven with great care and skill. It was well written, pace, plot, and story were well put together and I enjoyed it thoroughly!Read More »

I was lonely.

In the depths of despair really. I was by myself during the largest war in history. It was the best of times and the worst of times. The best of times because it was beautiful to see so many people fighting for the same cause, united as it were against an evil force and with love for humanity in their hearts. But it was also the worst of times because of that very same evil force and the people who were so afraid, they turned to evil themselves to cope with the evil around them. Not exactly my idea of coping, but to each their own. Read More »
