Bible Stories for His Beautiful Princess

by

Sheri Rose Shepherd

About:

Best-selling author Sheri Rose Shepherd uses charming princess characters and easy-to-understand Bible stories to help share spiritual wisdom and truths in this sweetly illustrated Bible storybook. This is a wonderful introduction to the Bible for even the tiniest of princesses! Bible Stories for His Beautiful Princess is a fresh way to teach little girls—toddlers and preschoolers—the foundations of the Christian faith. Simple lessons on how to know God, learning to pray, having faith, and understanding right from wrong make this the perfect first Bible. Using charming and engaging illustrations on every spread, princess-themed lessons, and easy-to-understand verses from the NLT, this Bible storybook will get little girls excited about engaging with God’s Word.

My thoughts:

As a woman I have enjoyed Sheri’s books very much. They have touched my heart deeply and honestly been life-changing. So when I saw this book for little girls I knew I had to check it out.

This book is very simple but I think it’s written perfectly for it’s intended audience. I would say this book is great for that pre-school princess of yours who has some understanding of what you are talking about.

Each day there is a little Bible verse to read and then a couple of paragraphs about someone from the Bible. Then there is a little prayer for you to pray and a few more thoughts. Short and sweet….just like your princess. I would’ve loved this book for my daughter when she was younger.

If you have a princess in your life why not grab a copy for Easter and help her to begin to discover who Jesus says she is?

Grab your copy at your local bookstore, Amazon, Barnes and Noble, Christianbook.com, or Books-A-Million.

Poison Town

by

Creston Mapes

About the book:

There’s More Than One Kind of Poison in This Town

People are sick and dying. Rumors are swirling. Some claim chemicals leaking from a manufacturing plant are causing the cancer that’s crippling people on the poor side of Trenton City, Ohio. Yet nothing at the plant appears amiss. The problem remains a mystery until reporter Jack Crittendon’s long-time mechanic falls ill and he investigates. Soon Jack becomes engulfed in a smokescreen of lies, setups, greed, and scandal. The deeper he digs, the more toxic the corruption he uncovers. As he faces off with the big-time players behind the scenes and tries to beat the clock before more people die, he realizes the chillingly unthinkable-he knows too much.

My thoughts:

Creston has done it again…another amazing book.

I couldn’t say enough good things about the first book in this series, Fear has a Name. And honestly the same is true with this book.

From the beginning chapters you are thrown into the whirlwind of some kind of big cover-up for a major factory. Someone is working hard to make sure no one finds out anything. People or missing, dyeing or coming close to death.

If you read the first book you will be familiar with Granger Meade, the guy that stalked and then kidnapped Jack’s wife. He is released from prison and is showing up in there lives again. This is added tension to an already tense book.

Jack is struggling to forgive Granger, while Pam wants to believe the best. Can Jack forgive Granger for what he did? How far can forgiveness stretch? Has Granger really changed? Does he love Jesus?

To get the answers you will have to read the book. You won’t be sorry you invested time in this one, it is well worth it.

Grab your copy at your local bookstore, Amazon, Barnes and Noble, Christianbook.com, Deeper Shopping or Books-A-Million.
