Wonderstruck... Struck by Wonder

 God is so wonderful! He fills me with amazing wonder. 

I can relate a lot to Margaret Feinberg as she describes what it means to be struck by the wonder of God. There is such depth to God's heart for us. While reading Wonderstruck, I find myself reflecting back on the first moments when I was filled with the wonder of who God was, after so many lies of who He is was stripped away. My heart takes flight at the thought that I am His and His alone. It is truly a divine romance that I am thankful will never end.

This book is so good! I encourage you to reserve a copy or begin a Bible study through this book. You can reserve the book here:

You will not be disappointed! 

Blessings to you as we give thanks this week.

"10 Christians Everyone Should Know"

This book was an easy read which encouraged me greatly. 10 Christians Everyone Should Know gives a brief overview of ten unique and diverse individuals that most of us have heard about in one way or another. One of the things that I loved about this book was the fact that they all followed Jesus and made a huge impact in this world even though many did not get to see the fruit of their labor. What is encouraging is the constant theme that, when one lives a life serving the Lord using ones gifts and talents, the impact is far greater than what one would ever expect.

Many of these ten people I already knew several things about. What was important for me was being able to understand in greater depth the important role their faith played with what they are most known for. 10 Christians Everyone Should Know, is a good book for those who like history and want to see the impact of faithful followers of Jesus.

I received this book free from and these opinions are my own.

A Must Read!!- "Messy" by A.J. Swaboda

Have you ever asked yourself why your life seems to be messed up? Life is messy and so often we seem to puke out the reality of our need for God and his holiness. One of the things that make God so awesome (despite his awesomeness) is that he loves us when we are messy. He meets us in our mess. We are not perfect yet God loves to work his perfection in us as we toil through the garbage, confusion, questions, and doubts that plague our lives

A.J. Swaboda brings a striking combination of humor and seriousness to describe how God likes us messy. We are messy people. As such God wants us to come to him without trying to cover it all up. With brutal honesty, lacking no fear to tackle sensitive issues, A.J. Swaboda conveys God’s truth that will have you laughing one second and caught in silent conviction the next.

Seriously, go check out A.J. Swaboda’s book, Messy. You will find God in the mess and be able to laugh at yourself here and there too!

Note: I received this book free from the author and these thoughts and opinions are my own.
