God’s Promises for Women of Faith by Jack Countryman {Book Review}

God’s Promises for Women of Faith is a book I will constantly be coming back to. It’s  personally taken up a permanent place  right along side my Bible. How awesome that it’s small enough yet packed full of such big things that it can slip right inside my the outer pocket of my Bible cover!

You’ll find that this little book is packed with many powerful & encouraging scriptures that will bring many blessings and conviction to it’s reader.  This book is broken up into many parts by topics such as those that will encourage us to grow in our faith.  I especially loved the section of the book that features many well known woman of the Bible such as Ruth, Mary, Sarah, Hannah, and more.

This book is perfect for daily scripture readings or if you are looking for a quick reference on many topics such as contentment,  adversity, and resting in Him to name just a few.

At the end of this book their is a section for you to personally add scriptures that stand out to you and a place for prayer request.

I wouldn’t hesitate to purchase this book for a friend with no doubt that it would be cherished. I feel this book would make the perfect gift for women from young to old traveling in their own many different walks of life.

LOL with God {book review}

LOL with God: Devotional Messages of Hope & Humor for Women
by Pam Farrel and Dawn Wilson.

I was quite intrigued when I first heard about LOL with God.  I’m always looking to add devotional study books to add to my shelf and this one though not as deep as some I have it’s definitely a keeper.

Each daily devotion opens with stories that involve connecting and technology of some sorts topped with a text message that plays part into the daily reading and how we can apply it to our own lives.  To tie of the devotion there’s four sections; Send up a Message, Text Helps, Your Turn, and LOL.  Which translates into a daily a prayer, scripture verses to take to heart, a section to write and convey your thoughts, and the LOL section is basically a short story to makes us smile and go about our day a little more cheerful.

I’m not a huge texter so I am pretty thankful that there were translations to many of the phrases and word shortcuts used in this book. I am sure anyone who is an avid texter and is more up on technology than me is going to love this book.

***Special thanks to Krista Ocier of Zondervan for sending me a review copy.***


Stan and Jan Berenstain introduced the first Berenstain Bear books in 1962. Mike Berenstain grew up watching his parents work together to write about and draw these lovable bears. Eventually he started drawing and writing about them too. Mike is married to Andrea, and they have three children. They live in Pennsylvania, in an area that looks a lot like Bear Country.
