Called to Protect by Lynette Eason—Book Review

When Chloe St. John and her K9 partner, Hank, respond to a call to fine drugs in the back of a wrecked truck, they are quickly surprised to find a bunch of teenage girls hidden in the trailer. When one of those girls turn out to be the daughter of a friend, Blake MacCallum, they quickly assemble a team to bring down the human trafficking ring and find his daughter who has disappeared again. Will they find her before it’s too late? Will they be able to find where they are hiding the girls and bring down this trafficking ring?

Extremely fast paced, this book will have you entranced from the beginning! I could not put it down! Every twist and turn had me gasping and wondering what now? It had me guessing until the end. This is book two in the Blue Justice series, but it could stand alone, and I can’t wait to read book three when it comes out! If you like good suspense with a little romance thrown in, this is the book for you.

Do your kids love to tell jokes? Do they try to make up jokes, and you find yourself laughing at jokes not because they’re funny, but because your kids think they’re hilarious? Then you need this book! As soon as I got this book in the mail, my 6-year-old daughter has been carrying it around reading all the jokes and entertaining us with her new jokes.

He is Enough by Asheritah Ciuciu–Book Review

This Bible Study will walk you through Colossians and show you how Christ is Enough, in fact he is more than enough. The world will tell you that you need more money, more things, more, more, more to be happy, to be complete, to be satisfied.

 “If you’re tired of seeking satisfaction that’s “just around the corner,” come and encounter the God who is here and who is ENOUGH. “

                                                                                              – from the back cover

I enjoyed this study and I definitely learned a lot from it. I enjoyed the way it helped me dive deeper and research things on my own. For example, there were times the study would have you look up what the original Greek words meant or look something up in a Bible dictionary. (Don’t worry, you can do this online if you don’t have one on hand) I will admit at some points I felt like it was a little too deep for me, or i just couldn’t figure out what the answer to the question asked based on the passage I was looking at. Overall, I enjoyed the study and would probably still recommend it, but I did find it a bit deep in spots.
