My Misadventures in Dating, Waiting, and Stumbling Into Love

by Stephanie Rische

Release Date: January 1, 2016

Publisher: Tyndale Momentum

ISBN: 978-1-4964-0481-7

Genre: Christian Life /Relationship Dating

Have you ever felt alone while it seems as if all your friends are getting married and having babies wondering if you’ll ever have that chance? Stephanie Rische completely understands. In fact, she found herself wondering if there was something wrong with her – was she not pretty enough? Not fun enough? Not datable enough? So she turned to God as she began to pray earnestly for God to bring the man she was meant to marry into her life.

Instead, she was given eight matchmakers.

I Was Blind (Dating), but Now I See is a true story about a young woman who tried really hard to find someone she could fall in love with despite the fact that she kept falling flat on her face. Amid the most cringe-worthy and awkward situations, Stephanie’s journey shows how God’s grace and love can meet us in ways we never could have imagined. We just have to open our eyes in order to see it.

We live in a world where heartache and discouragement can create hopelessness. But when we find hope, we can overcome whatever it may be that is troubling us. Lee Strobel explains that real hope is so much more than just wishful thinking, blind optimism, or hopeful dreams. Hope is found in Jesus Christ. This hope gives us an overriding confidence, that no matter what comes our way, God is with us and is greater than any challenge that we may go through.

ISBN-13: 9780718031480

Genre: Biography & Autobiography / General

I am super excited to be able to talk about this particular book. I don’t really watch Duck Dynasty, but I do love what they stand for. It was really neat to read Jep and Jessica’s story, especially since they are the least known about in the family, having only appeared on the show since season four. Readers will love this read because it’s as if you are in one of their backyard bonfires and they’re personal friends.

Release Date: June 2015

Publisher: Revell

ISBN: 9780800722821

Genre: Ficton, Thriller, Suspense, Romance, Mystery

Series: Logan Point

Patricia Bradley’s newest novel is an edge of the seat kind of thriller that will leave you wanting to watch the villain receive the justice that he deserves. There’s lots of sweet romance. It is a tale of forgiveness and finding one’s way in the world. The characters and their stories are so relatable that it’ll bring it home showing us that no matter how much we plan our lives and strive for perfectness, not everything is going to go our way. God being in control is the main theme of the novel. The novel starts out slow in the very beginning, but it picks up and it’ll become impossible to put down. You’ll feel as if you are apart of the characters of Logan Point, Mississippi. Read the rest of this entry

Give Yourself a Break by Kim Fredrickson

Release Date: JuneTu 2015

Publisher: Revell

ISBN: 9780800724412

Genre: CLWI, Self Help, Non-Fiction

Licensed marriage and family therapist Kim Fredrickson offers a unique approach to self-compassion. I majored in counseling when I was in college so I found it really fascinating and a useful resource. It is well-written gentle in its text, and Biblically sound. I’m excited that there is a book on this topic because there aren’t many.

As Christians, it can be really difficult to incorporate the practice of self-compassion. Read the rest of this entry

Genre: Christian Living

Have you ever felt worthless, not good enough, or guilty because you don’t measure up? Have you ever felt like you were alone while everyone else seemed to have their lives together? We all want to feel valued. That we are worth something. We crave the approval and acceptance in the eyes of family, friends, and even strangers. We always fall short whenever we seek the world’s standards. We also cannot believe we are who God says we are -accepted, loved, beautiful, and treasured if we seek these lies.
