My Review of "Jesus Lives" by Sarah Young

When I received this book from Thomas Nelson Book Reviewers, I couldn't wait to read the first page. Each page is titled with something new (joy, faith, trials, etc.) and depending on how quickly an individual wants to go through this book, you can choose to use it as a daily devoitional or read 3-4 entries a day. The book is very easy to read, the scriptural references are so perfect and it makes it so good to be able to reflect back on them for the future to encourage again and again. What I liked most is that the book is written as though Jesus Himself is talking to us daily from His heart. We can sit down with Him and read what He has for us, He already has it all written down. We know this already, some of the things we have gone through already, and maybe some we have not yet to experience, but the book is encouraging and it gives hope, hope that Jesus lives, that He loves and that He is alive and loves us. That is what I got out of this book. I will be passing it on to share with others as well. For a great way to start your time with Jesus in the morning, this is the book to buy! It will put a smile on your face and draw you closer to the One who chose us!

New Book-Next Meeting Date

Hello Ladies-
It was so good to meet the other day and get ready for the upcoming holidays. As most of you know our next title that we should be reading is The Sound of Sleighbells by Cindy Woodsmall.
We have agreed that our next meeting date will be on a Tuesday instead of Saturday just for the month of December. And that will be on Tuesday, December 8th at 6:00 p.m.
We have already chosen our book of the month for January too, but please be thinking ahead for any books that you would like to add to our list that we can start looking at and voting on.
We look forward to the new coming year. I can't believe that this will be coming close the the end of the second year of the Chick Lit Book Club and Review. Lucie and I appreciate all of you very much! We wouldn't be a group without you ladies!
God bless you all**

Just Discovered Another Good Author

Hey Ladies-I was entering another contest-which I do on a daily basis now-thanks to my wonderful friend Lucie, I am now hooked. But it has paid off, I have won 2 great books now. I hope to win more. It gives me the opportunity to find new authors that I may not have heard about otherwise. So recently I was entering a contest on one of the sites and came across this book that sounds really good-I thought I would include a little detail about it so you could check it out for yourself. We may review it sometime you never know. Let me know if it interests you. I guess it is the 2nd book by Christa Parrish-her first one was titled "Daisy Chain". So here is some details about "Watch Over Me" "Her rescue might be the miracle they needed, things like this don't happen in Beck County. Deputy Benjamin Patil is the one to find the infant baby girl, abandoned in a field. As police work to identify the mother, Ben and his wife, Abbi, seem like the obvious couple to serve as foster parents. But the newborn's arrival open old wounds for Abbi and shines a harsh light on how much Ben has changed since a devastaing military tour. Their marriage teeters on the brink and now they must choose to reclaim what they once had or lose eachother forever."
Okay, I have entered the contest to win a copy of this book-I will let you know if I get it! I will keep posting about other good books I hear about. And great authors.
Have a great day everyone!
