To Heaven And Back

I thoroughly enjoyed this book. Heaven has always been a topic that has intrigued me greatly. Mary C. Neal, MD shares her personal experience of her encounter with the heavenly realm. She was in an almost fatal kayaking accident. God had different plans for her life and it wasn't her time to go. This book really prompted me to consider how glorious Heaven is going to be. There will be no sorrow! Mary C. Neal MD admits that there is no words in the human language to truly describe what she experienced and felt. I found myself anxious because I really want to know what Heaven is like! However, I understand that there is no words available to describe something so glorious. I would highly recommend this book to someone who has lost a loved one and is struggling with the concept of Heaven. I received this book for free from WaterBrook Multnomah Publishing Group for this review.

Beyond Molasses Creek

I began to believe that I would be disappointed by Beyond Molasses Creek when I first began reading it. It was tough for me to get connected to the characters at first. However, by Chapter 5, I was hooked. The characters began to feel real to me. What I liked best about this book was the element of surprise. It's hard to find a book that is not predictable. Nicole Seitz sprang some surprises on her readers. Ally has had a lot of ups and downs in her life. I thought she was a bit self-centered. Vesey was a good display of what a good Christian man and friend should be. I found myself wishing to read a sequel. I received this book from Booksneeze complimentary. I have not been paid for this review.

Every Woman's Battle

This was a very good and informative book. Shannon Ethridge did a fantastic job of illustrating the way to be a pure, Godly wife. I like how she wrote this book in a way that women who are not yet married can read it and apply the principles in their life. She shares how a woman can remain pure not only in deed, but thoughts also. She has shared willingly with her readers lessons that she learned the hard way in her own life. It is so refreshing to see a book that is very to the point and straightforward. It doesn't sugarcoat anything. It clearly depicts right and wrong. I plan on sharing this book with other women. I received this book for free from WaterBrook Multnomah Publishing Group for this review.
