5 Habits of a Woman Who Doesn’t Quit by Nicki Koziarz

Posted 02/28/2020 by Charli - 0 Comments -

Nicki Koziarz wrote 5 Habits of a Woman Who Doesn’t Quit for me. I have a horrible habit of quitting the things I commit to doing. I’ve quit going to my offline book clubs. I’ve quit doing things with my online book clubs. I haven’t been doing things with my blogging groups. About the only thing I have not quit is going to school. So yes, Nicki Koziarz wrote 5 Habits of a Woman Who Doesn’t Quit for me. She wrote this book for you too. After all, I’m pretty sure you quit things as well. Nicki Koziarz writes a book about Ruth and how she doesn’t quit. She details the 5 habits Ruth exhibits that means she doesn’t quit when the times get tough. Using Ruth’s story makes the habits Nicki is trying to tell us about easier to understand. As a result, the concepts outlined in this book […]

All in All Journaling Devotional by Sophie Hudson

When I chose to review this journaling devotional, I did so because I thought it was unique. I have several devotionals laying around the house, but none of them are particularly “interactive” where you would actually answer questions, write out your thoughts or feelings, or even really think about possibly praying about what you’d read. They’re just little blurbs by this or that author – some of them are about strong women of faith, others are different “insights” about Christ’s love for us and our walk with Christ. But none of them had the journaling aspect to them. I wasn’t disappointed. “All in All” is a 100 day devotional geared toward teen girls. It features a devotional, scripture readings, and a place to answer questions, write out your thoughts and feelings, and even a place each day to write out the day’s prayers. If you want to be able to […]

Unlimited by Davis Bunn

At first glance you’d never know this was a Christian fiction story. The way the book starts out, you’d think you had started your ordinary, run of the mill action/adventure/mystery novel. But as you go on, you see sprinklings of why this is a Christian fiction story. The story was a very good one–and I admit that the mark of Christianity is not over done so the reader isn’t feeling left bombarded by calls to become a Christian as often happens with books that contain members who aren’t yet a Christian. In fact, while the Christianity in the book is obvious, it shouldn’t make anyone uncomfortable if they simply wanted to read a good book. This book moves fairly quickly, which is nice. There isn’t a lot of superfluous writing here–no lengthy descriptions of inconsequential things, just good solid storytelling. I kept wondering who was the mysterious “Jefe” and honestly […]

The Race by Darrell Waltrip, Kyle Froman, & Billy Mauldin

I’ve been a NASCAR fan for quite a while so I know who Darrell Waltrip is. And I’ll admit, I thought this book was going to be more about racing than about being a Christian. I suppose I should have expected the Christianity bit by the publisher, but I wasn’t paying attention when I picked it. The book is surprisingly good and shows how you can live a life on the road, working every Sunday, and still keep and spread your Christian faith. While Darrell doesn’t so much talk about how he’s shared his faith–he talks more about how he kept it than how he’s shared it–Kyle Froman and Billy Mauldin talk about sharing faith as chaplains for MRO (Motor Racing Outreach). The Race brings a new perspective to Christianity. It brings the perspective of people who know that it is a struggle to be a Christian in our world […]

I Will by Thom S. Rainer

This book will definitely step on some readers’ toes. I’ve always heard that a good sermon or a good book on how to be a proper Christian will step on your toes. That’s not always a good thing. In the case of I Will, it is. Too many times Christians (and non-Christians as well) focus too much on themselves. What they want. What they feel they need. How they think the church and other people in it should act. I fully admit even as a non-Christian that I have a specific idea of how a church I attend should handle their affairs. I have a specific idea of how the music should be, how the preacher should preach, how the congregation should act. And that’s not OK. I Will is about changing the attitude of church members from being focused on themselves, what they want, what they feel they need, […]
