Forsaking All Others

I could hardly put this book down. It kept my attention and made me really think. Allison Pittman skillfully tells the story of Camilla Fox. Camilla made the defying decision to leave the Mormon church. This included leaving her husband and for a brief time, her daughters. It was a very dangerous situation in which she placed herself, but Camilla knew she had to free herself of the chains that had her bound so that she would be better able to serve the true God. I plan on checking to see if there is a sequel to this series as I enjoyed it SO much. I was given a complimentary copy of "Forsaking All Others" from Tyndale House Publishers and have been in no way paid for this review.

It's Not About Me

It's Not About Me is another classic book written by Max Lucado. This amazing author reminds us that we are here on this earth to glorify God and for His pleasure. We live in a world where instant gratification is not only expected, but encouraged. Scripture tells us that our bodies are vessels for Christ and that all glory is due Him. Lucado masterfully encourages us in his down-to-earth style of writing to remember this. I would encourage others to read this book. I received It's Not About Me by Max Lucado from BookSneeze and was not paid for this review.
