Review: The Lightlings by R.C. Sproul

My review: 

This book is so lovely. The story is so simple and thought provoking. The beautiful metaphors the author uses are heart warming. This could be understood and enjoyed by even the smallest of children and also a real treat for adults alike. I feel the story held a beautiful innocent truth of the simplicity of giving your life to the lord. The light is truly a great symbol and made the message of this story very powerful. I thought it was so wonderful how the author not only added questions and answers at the end but also included the bible verses to back up the Q&A's. The book had lovely illustrations throughout and was quite enjoyable. I would recommend this story to all ages especially to read together as a family.

review: dragonspell

My review:

Weaving together memorable characters, daring adventure, and a core of eternal truth, Dragonspell is a finely crafted and welcome addition to the corpus of fantasy fiction.
I loved this book! It is a fun fantasy adventure with just the right combination of both elements. It has a great storyline and loveable characters. This book is full of insight and can really tug at your heart. I love the picture you draw from the description of the characters. I felt I could see each of them and felt as though they were my friends too. I never knew what was coming next, especially as the friends came across some not so friendly creatures in their quest. This is a very fun story to read. I highly recommend it to everyone.

Review: The Hunt by Linell Jeppsen

This book was a real page turner.I love the way the author tells the stories of all the sets of characters and then intertwines them together.You get a reall feel of the characters and a real understanding of all sides of the story.This story is unique and captivating.Although I do want to note that I thought that the book may be to gory for me by the very descriptive first 2 pages ,but after that I completely fell in love with this book and couldn't put it down.I understand that these images were there a much needed insight to the total disreguard for these people from the ones who done it.So I would not change this and am glad that I pushed past it to finish this book that had me hooked from beginning to end.

book review: You Were Born For This by Bruce Wilkinson

This book will renew and refresh your spirit.It shows people that sometimes you have to start within yourself to help along the things that we want to see from God.It does this in such a way though that it makes you want to do it.You want to be better.You want to practice these steps in your life."The truth is,you were born to live a supernatural life doing God's work by God's power.You were born to walk out your door each morning believing that God will use you to deliver a necessary miracle today.This book will show you how."I think this 3 sentence quote tells you alot about the power that this book has in store for you if you just read it and apply it's words to your heart.
